Joel Elconin

Joel Elconin is the co-host of Benzinga's #PreMarket Prep, a daily trading idea radio show.

World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: WWE) shares were trading higher by $1.69 (8 percent) at $21.86 on Tuesday. The issue is continuing its march north after blowing away Wall Street estimates for EPS by by by $0.09.09.09 on July 30. In addition, the company reported strong subscriber numbers.

This is the highest the stock has traded since April 2014.

After digesting its huge gain on July 30, rallying from $16.48 to $19.36 for two days, WWE climbed into the $20 handle on Monday, ending the session at $20.17. In Tuesday's session, it opened at the low print for the day ($20.23) and reached $22.05 before pulling back under $22.

That marks the highest level for WWE since it cascaded from the $30 level back in April 2014. As long as WWE closes above $20.17, it will be the sixth consecutive day of gains.
