From a technical perspective, SCVL is ripping higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $19.89 on above average volume. This move is also pushing SCVL into breakout territory since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $21.12.

Traders should continue to look for long-biased trades as long as SCVL is trending above its 50-day and $21.12 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider upside volume that's near or well above 106,803 shares as bullish. If we get that action, look for SCVL to hit its next significant overhead resistance levels at $22.61 to $22.70 and possibly take those levels out.
