Important: Typically, these trades offer a risk: reward ratio of 1:2 or 1:3 in the next 6 months, which implies 2x to 3x rewards when compared to risks. So, be sure to set your stop-loss levels and target prices accordingly to manage your risk. In addition, these trade ideas are triggered using daily closing prices, not intra-day pricing. So, if you participate in these trades, make sure that you only buy the stock once its daily close is above the recommended price level.

That said, here are the top 10 stocks to watch for a breakout, in no particular order.

#1 Allogene Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALLO)

Sector: Healthcare | Biotechnology

Reason: Downtrend Channel Breakout

A downtrend or descending channel is the price action contained between downward sloping parallel lines. It is formed by two lines that are drawn by connecting the lower highs and lower lows of a stock’s price. Even though this is typically a bearish pattern, a breakout from the upper rail of this pattern is considered a good bullish indication.

Buy Level(s): The daily chart shows that the stock has currently broken out of a downtrend channel. However, there is a near-term resistance level for the stock. Hence, the ideal buy level for ALLO is if the stock has a daily close above $11.35. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#2 ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS)

Sector: Technology | Software – Application

Reason: Formation of a Falling Wedge Pattern

A falling wedge pattern is formed by joining two downward-sloping, converging trendlines having a contracting range. The pattern appears to be wide at the top and continues to contract as prices fall. A breakout from a falling wedge pattern can indicate either reversal or continuation depending on where the pattern appeared in the trend.

A stock that has broken out of a falling wedge pattern would have gained momentum and would have the potential to move higher.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for ANSS is if the stock breaks out of the falling wedge pattern, at a price of around $241.70. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#3 Iridium Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: IRDM)

Sector: Communication Services | Telecom Services

Reason: Formation of a Symmetrical Triangle Pattern

A symmetrical triangle is a chart pattern formed by two converging trend lines connecting a series of sequential peaks and troughs. These two lines result in the formation of a triangle that appears to be symmetrical.

A symmetrical triangle pattern is usually formed when there is an indecision in the price movements and there is uncertainty among the buyers and sellers. This chart pattern represents a period of consolidation before the price breaks out or breaks down. In case a breakout occurs from the upper trend line, it is a strong bullish indication as it signifies the start of a new bullish trend.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for IRDM is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the symmetrical triangle pattern, at around $37.35. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.
