>>5 Stocks That Could Crush the Bears

From a technical perspective, VNET is ripping here back above its 50-day moving average of $11.86 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing the stock within range of a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once VNET takes out some past overhead resistance at $13.63 to $13.75 with high-volume.

Traders should now consider long-biased trades after VENT reports its earnings if it can sustain a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or well above 341,140 shares. If we get that post-earnings action, then this stock will have a great chance of hitting $15 to $17 or much higher.

On the flipside, I would avoid VNET or look for short-biased traders if it takes out its 200-day moving average of $10.81 with volume post-earnings.
