The shares of women's health specialist Hologic, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOLX) are clinging to a 1.6% year-over-year lead. In 2022, however, HOLX sports an 8.6% deficit. While the Hologic stock's current technical setup is less than desirable, July just might serve a silver lining, if past is precedent.

Looking back over the last 10 years, HOLX averaged a July gain of 9.1%,and finished the month higher nine times. From it's current perch at $70.13, a move of similar magnitude would have the equity reclaiming its year-to-date breakeven level.
