Hologic's stock is down 1.7% to $19.92 on heavy trading volume. Approximately 3.3 million shares have changed hands today vs. average 30-day volume of 2.2 million shares. Spikes in volume can validate a breakout or signify a potential turning point.

There is potential upside of 27.4% for shares of Hologic based on a current price of $19.92 and an average consensus analyst price target of $25.38. Hologic shares should first meet resistance at the 200-day moving average (MA) of $20.84 and find additional resistance at the 50-day MA of $21.75.
