BJ has an excellent technical rating and also presents a decent setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately and the volatility has been reduced. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 69.61. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 68.7, a Stop Loss order could be placed below this zone. Very recently a Pocket Pivot signal was observed. This is another positive sign.
One way to play this would be to wait for the actual breakout to happen and buy when the stock breaks out above the current consolidation zone. A possible place for a stop loss would be below this zone.
