Recently, the 50 Day Moving Average for RF broke out above the 200 Day Simple Moving Average, suggesting a short-term bullish trend.
This has already started to take place, as the stock has moved higher by 13.5% in the past four weeks. Plus, the company currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) suggesting that now could definitely be the time for this breakout candidate.
