The price crossed below the 50 day SMA at the end of the month and bounced. It then returned to the top of the channel last week. It ended the week breaking above the channel Friday. It is within $2 of the all-time high entering the week with the RSI rising in the bullish zone with the MACD crossed up and rising.

Short interest is low under 1%. The stock pays a dividend with a yield of 1.90% and went ex-dividend May 23rd. The company is expected to report earnings next July 18th.
