From a technical perspective, Expeditors International (EXPD) is looking like an interesting pick, as it just reached a key level of support. EXPD recently overtook the 20-day moving average, and this suggests a short-term bullish trend.

The 20-day simple moving average is a well-liked trading tool because it provides a look back at a stock's price over a 20-day period. Additionally, short-term traders find this SMA very beneficial, as it smooths out short-term price trends and shows more trend reversal signals than longer-term moving averages.

Similar to other SMAs, if a stock's price moves above the 20-day, the trend is considered positive, while price falling below the moving average can signal a downward trend.

Investors should think about putting EXPD on their watchlist given the ultra-important technical indicator and positive move in earnings estimate revisions.
