4 Stocks Poised to Break Out

WINDERMERE, Fla. ( Stockpickr) -- Trading stocks that trigger major breakouts can lead to massive profits. Once a stock trends to a new high, or takes out a prior overhead resistance point, then it's free to find new buyers and momentum players that can ultimately push the stock significantly higher.

A great example of a powerful breakout that just hit Wall Street today is LiveDeal ( LIVE). On Thursday, I wrote about the potential for a breakout trade for LiveDeal in my "5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar" article. I highlighted how shares of LiveDeal were setting up to trigger a near-term break out above $7.67 a share.

Trading breakouts is not a new game on Wall Street. This strategy has been mastered by legendary traders such as William O'Neal, Stan Weinstein and Nicolas Darvas. These pros know that once a stock starts to break out above past resistance levels, and hold above those breakout prices, then it can easily trend significantly higher.

With that in mind, here's a look at four stocks that are setting up to break out and trade higher from current levels.
