Sometimes stocks making big moves have been hit with an analyst upgrade or an analyst downgrade.

Wednesday's Range: $3.02-$3.15
52-Week Range: $2.70-$5.89
Wednesday's Volume: 31.24 million
Three-Month Average Volume: 18.06 million

From a technical perspective, ZNGA ripped higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $2.99 with heavy upside volume flows. This move to the upside on Wednesday also pushed shares of ZNGA into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $3.09 to $3.15. Shares of ZNGA are now starting to trend within range of triggering another big breakout trade. That trade will hit if ZNGA manages to take out some past overhead resistance levels at $3.27 to $3.29 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ZNGA as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $2.99 or above more near-term support at $2.82 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 18.06 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then ZNGA will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.51 to $3.52, or even $3.81 to $4.13.
