Emmis Communications ( EMMS) is a diversified media company, principally focused on radio broadcasting. This stock is trading up 4.6% at $2.25 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $2.11-$2.37

52-Week Range: $0.58-$2.15

Volume: 398,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 371,747

From a technical perspective, EMMS has started to trigger a breakout trade here with the stock moving above some past overhead resistance levels at $2.14 to $2.18 with above average volume. This move is now quickly pushing EMMS within range of an even bigger breakout trade. That breakout will trigger once EMMS takes out its 2010 high of $2.45 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in EMMS as long as it's trending above $2.10 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 371,747 shares as bullish. If EMMS can sustain that trend, then this stock will have a great chance of re-testing and taking out that 2010 high of $2.45. If that level gets taken out soon, then EMMS could easily trade north of $3 in the near future.
