If you're bullish on EVER, then I would look for long-biased trades once this stock breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $12.35 to $12.59 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average action of 254,303 shares. If we get that action, then EVER will have a great chance of trending north of $13 a share.

Keep in mind that any move above $12.59 will push EVER into all-time-high territory, which is bullish technical price action.
