22nd Century Group Inc (NYSEMKT:XXII) gained 49 cents, or 24.75%, Friday on one of the heaviest-volume days this year, with 14 million shares traded. That’s 9 times higher than average volume, and the stock closed at $2.47, the highest close since October 2014. These signs show high probability for continuation of current strong momentum next week. To the upside, the next major resistance is located 3.35 (the high of August 2014) levels.
From a technical standpoint, the stock is trading well above its five rising EMAs in a clear bull market. All three daily technical indicators on the chart above are in their respective overbought zones. Based on this, any pullback here should be viewed as an opportunity to buy. Long term investors should use the rising 200-day EMA as stop.
For the Social, Analyst and Sentiment perspective on stocks like XXII and other biotech stocks get on Stockal with a lifetime membership at just $99 (yes, that’s $99 forever – including all future developments – think of it like a crowdfunding campaign. This is being offered to only the first 5,000 people). More here.
