After reaching an important support level, Group 1 Automotive (GPI - Free Report) could be a good stock pick from a technical perspective. GPI surpassed resistance at the 50-day moving average, suggesting a short-term bullish trend.

The 50-day simple moving average is a widely used technical indicator that helps determine support or resistance levels for different types of securities. It's one of three major moving averages, but takes precedent because it's the first sign of an up or down trend.

GPI has rallied 6% over the past four weeks, and the company is a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) at the moment. This combination suggests GPI could be on the verge of another move higher.

The bullish case only gets stronger once investors take into account GPI's positive earnings estimate revisions. There have been 4 higher compared to none lower for the current fiscal year, and the consensus estimate has moved up as well.

With a winning combination of earnings estimate revisions and hitting a key technical level, investors should keep their eye on GPI for more gains in the near future.
