WY: Weyerhaeuser Co. reports earnings next Friday July 30. No matter how you decide to find trades or investments you can’t ignore a huge spike in volume combined with a 24% increase in price.

Whether you are day trading or value investor this stock is building a classic base; one that is consolidating its recent gains as well as giving you a terrific risk point to plan for a solid risk/reward.

Initiating the first part of my trade here with a stop below $39, there is some short term resistance to get through at $44. A close above this level I plan to add to the trade which should take me to my profit target of just over $48.

If I start to see similar price action in IP: International Paper and LPX: Louisiana Pacific this will confirm money is flowing in to the sector for earnings season and I will increase my capital allocation on the idea.
