Alerting Members To VXRT Ahead of 42% Gain

This past Monday, after Vaxart, Inc. (VXRT) popped above key technical resistance, Mike Paulenoff posted a timely update alerting MPTrader members to a potentially significant upside breakout:
"VXRT has again climbed into heavy, but very consequential resistance from 8.30 to 9.45," Mike wrote. "If VXRT can chew through the resistance zone, it will be poised for upside continuation that projects 14-15 in a 'normal' market. We all know that once these Covid-related names gain traction, they are anything but normal. VXRT is in Phase 1 Trials testing its oral (pill form) Covid vaccine drug."
VXRT was trading at 8.44 at the time, and two hours later the stock was at 10.56, taking out all resistance since mid-August -- and still on no news.
Mike wrote: "In the absence of company or drug product news, I am thinking that just maybe VXRT's 35% short interest is what is attracting buyers to the name, which seems to be the new game in town... I am just guessing that perhaps that is one reason it is flying, but I am also hearing that the ARK Innovation Fund bought VXRT at 8.10 this AM-- you know, the folks who bought TSLA, and ROKU, etc, which certainly has some coattails."
Mike continued to closely monitor and post chart updates on VXRT for MPTrader members throughout the week, with the stock reaching as high as 13.50 on Friday before closing the week at 11.98, up 42% above its price at Mike's alert on Monday.
What next for VXRT in this upcoming week when the company is expected to release data from its Phase 1 Covid Vaccine Trial, and from earnings?

On May 22, we introduced a budding bullish technical setup in RIG (TransOcean Ltd) to MPTrader members, noting:"RIG (TransOcean) is up 7% today, a thrust that immensely improves the technical position of the stock. RIG exhibits an extremely powerful near and intermediate-term setup that points to a next upside target zone of 6.80 to 7.10, but when overlaid on my attached Daily Chart, projects to 8.50... last is 6.36.
Well before the Artificial Intelligence (AI) hysteria was unleashed this past Thursday by the shockingly powerful earnings report from Nvidia (NVDA) that reset expectations for the growth and revenue potential of AI, our technical pattern analysis of MRVL provided an early heads-up for MPTrader members.
Just after the start of the New Year, on January 9, Mike Paulenoff posted the following missive to MPTrader members about EWJ (Japanese Country Fund ETF):In my reading and research this weekend, my eyebrows did a bit of a backward roll when I saw the budding technical setup in EWJ.
On April 21, AAPL climbed to a new 8-month recovery high of 168.16, representing a 35% gain from the January 2023 low. We alerted MPTrader members to the new high in AAPL, but attached a yellow caution flag to the update:"AAPL continues to intrigue me technically because the stock hit a new multi-month recovery high at 168.16 on Wednesday -- 35% above its Jan 3rd low, but stalled right at its 15-month resistance line that cuts across the price axis in the vicinity of 168.
On March 20, I posted the following technical alert to MPTrader members:"FCX (Freeport-McMoRan)-- Technically, let's notice that FCX appears to be in the U-Turn phase after the completion of a 7-week 25% corrective period that successfully tested the 200 DMA last week. If the commodity complex has fully corrected its post-pandemic-inflationary spiral bull phase (think Crude Oil, down 46% from its 2022 highs), then FCX with its concentration of Copper, Gold, Silver, and Oil is poised for a resurgence of strength...
