App delivery expert Digital Turbine Inc (NASDAQ:APPS) has been a steady winner in 2019, pacing to close the year with a gain of more than 300%. The shares hit a decade-plus high of $9.13 on Nov. 29, and pulled back from there. A quick look at the chart for APPS would suggest this could be a prime entry point for bulls, and the data backs it up.

Specifically, data from Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White shows that the 80-day moving average in particular has been support in the past.
