Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average volume of 450,661 shares.

Who will rule the sky?
Boeing and Airbus have been rivals for some time, with both companies attempting to dominate the mini-jumbo market. The A350-1000 has had slow sales to start, but ir recently took a swing at Boeing's 777's thanks to an $6 billion order from longtime Boeing customer British Airways. More importantly, this order marked a upward tick in sales as Air Lease (NYSE: AL ) also purchased five A350-1000s, and other airlines have starting to show interest in doing the same. Considering Airbus markets the A350-1000 as a 777 replacement, I'm guessing Boeing is feeling a little bruised.�

4. Air Lease (NYSE: AL )
The airline industry has been traveling through a patch of turbulence in the past year. Airlines are buying refineries, merging left and right, dealing with environmental regulations in Europe, and growing tremendously in international markets. Air Lease, believe it or not, offers a way to mitigate all of those risks. As you can probably deduce, the company leases aircraft to markets around the world. Each aircraft is brand-spanking-new, comes in one of the most popular sizes, and is among the most fuel efficient in the world. No wonder shares have left the runway this year.
