By Shiri Gupta

Hormel Foods (NYSE:HRL) traded in a range yesterday that spanned from a low of $36.70 to a high of $37.45. Yesterday, the shares gained 2.2%, which took the trading range above the 3-day high of $37.11 on volume of 1.7 million shares. Often times after large one-day gains, short term traders will seek to take profits and, as such, investors should be cautious.
