Pop the champagne, these three stocks are breaking out. After a rocky start to the year, $39 billion cruise ship operator Carnival (CCL - Get Report) has spent the last six months or so trending higher, up more than 21% since bottoming back in early July. Altria Group (MO - Get Report) pushed its way through $66 resistance earlier in December, a move that clears the way for a re-test of prior highs up at $69. For Priceline (PCLN) , the big breakout level to watch is resistance up at $1,575.
