Click to EnlargeIt’s always nice when a stock’s trading patterns align so that I end up making a bullish bet on a company I like. And when you need paper towels, toys for the kids or even new furniture, Target (NYSE:TGT) is one of my go-to big box stores for a decent (though not bargain-barrel) price.
The stock has confirmed its upward trend after a temporary pullback. Such a bounceback is one of the most reliable buy signals for a long position or call options. The stock has a support level at $62, and volatility is below average—which means you’ll probably won’t be surprised by a drastic downshift.
Recommendation: Buy TGT July 70 call options at 95 cents or lower, when the stock price is around $65.90. After entry, take profits if the stock price hits $68.50 or the option price reaches $1.90. Exit if the stock price closes below $64.60 or the option price falls to 60 cents.
