Upbeat outlook and buoyant prospects from the Nexeo acquisition have contributed to the gain in Univar's (UNVR) shares.

Controladora Vuela Compañía de Aviación, S.A.B. de C.V. VLRS is looking like an interesting pick from a technical perspective, as the company is seeing favorable trends on the moving average crossover front. Recently, the 50 Day Moving Average for VLRS broke out above the 200 Day Simple Moving Average, suggesting a short-term bullish trend.

This has already started to take place, as the stock has moved higher by 13.1% in the past four weeks. Plus, the company currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) suggesting that now could definitely be the time for this breakout candidate.
