From a technical perspective, ULTI is moving modestly higher here on above-average volume. This stock has been uptrending strong for the past six months, with shares soaring from a low of $59.93 to a recent high of $83.02. During that uptrend, ULTI has consistently made higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades as long as ULTI is trending above $79.50 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 153,865 shares as bullish. If we get that move, then look for UTLI to re-test its recent high of $83.02.
