LKQ ( LKQX), one of TheStreet Ratings' top-rated supplier and distributor stocks, provides replacement parts, components and systems needed to repair vehicles (cars and trucks). This stock is trading up 1% at $30.81 in recent trading after hitting a 52-week of $31.25 earlier in the day.

Today's Range: $30.25-$31.25

52-week Range: $20.38-$31.25

Volume: 428,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 728,097

LKQ has a market cap of $4.54 billion and an enterprise value of $5.07 billion. The stock trades at a trailing price-to-earnings of 23.28 and a forward price-to-earnings of 16.92. Its estimated growth rate for this year is 24.1%, and for next year it's pegged at 27.1%. The current short interest as a percentage of the float for LKQ is very low at 1%.

From a technical standpoint, this stock is starting to trigger a big breakout today now that it's starting to move above some past overhead resistance at $30.02 to $30.24.

Traders should watch to see how this stock closes today. Look for a close that puts the stock above $30.24 on high-volume. I would consider it very bullish if LKQX finishes within 30 cents of $31 on volume that's close to or above 728,097 shares. If we get that action, then look for much higher prices for this stock in the near future.
