Tuesday's Volume: 15,000
Three-Month Average Volume: 71,077 From a technical perspective, SPHS spiked higher here right above some near-term support at $4.08 with lighter-than-average volume. This stock has been trending sideways and consolidating for the last two months and change, with shares moving between $4.08 on the downside and $5.11 on the upside. Shares of SPHS are now starting to trend within range of triggering a big breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading chart pattern. That breakout will hit if SPHS manages to take out some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $4.65 to $4.85 to some past overhead resistance at $5.11 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SPHS as long as it's trending above Tuesday's low of $4.25 or above its 52-week low of $4.08 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 71,077 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SPHS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance level at $5.91.
