Today's Range: $2.98-$3.16 52-Week Range: $2.29-$10.11 Volume: 1.9 million Three-Month Average Volume: 1.3 million From a technical perspective, AVL has started to flirt with a breakout trade since the stock briefly traded above some near-term overhead resistance at $3.13 with huge volume. Traders should continue to look for long biased trades as long as AVL is trending above $3.13, and if it can manage to close near its daily highs. If we get that action today, then look for AVL to re-test its next significant overhead resistance level at $3.48 in the near future.
