Company Description

Why We Like It:
IR is in the industrial goods sector. Investors have ignored the company's Q2 earnings warning from its earnings report back in late April. Instead traders have lifted IR stock to new all-time highs. Shares have spent the last couple of weeks consolidating sideways under resistance near $59.00. IR appears to be coiling for a breakout higher thanks to the trend of higher lows.

I am suggesting a trigger to launch bullish positions at $59.15. If triggered our target is $64.00.

FYI: IR will begin trading ex-dividend on June 12th. The quarterly dividend should be 21 cents.

Trigger @ 59.15
