Nike (NASDAQ:NKE) is one company that has already seen some bullishness. The stock hit a new all-time high this week -- and we think it looks strong enough to warrant a short-put play.
Wireless backhaul technology leader Ceragon (NASDAQ:CRNT) has a market cap of just $186 million.
Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) is also dealing with some bearish news that may keep it in a consolidation range, and we want to take advantage by selling a covered call.
One of my friends and I were discussing the markets, and he drew my attention to a company that I was not familiar with: Covetrus (NASDAQ:CVET).
As traders look around for other stocks to add to their portfolios, we think many of them are going to zero in on Target (NYSE:TGT).

Spending on pets in the US continues to rise. According to the APPA, spending for 2020 is projected to come in at $99 billion, up from $94 billion in 2019 and $90 billion in 2018, representing a climb of 9.4% in just two years.
For us, Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) is a clear pick when selling a put write.
Last Friday, I asked if you remembered mixtapes, and this week I'm wondering you if you can remember BlackBerry (NYSE:BB).

We’ve wanted to sell puts on Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), but it’s simply been too expensive.
We feel encouraged because the ISM's PMI shows growing business investments, so we think this is the right time to open a new put write in Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT).
When we last recommended a position on Dollar General (NYSE:DG), we were trading on a relatively positive retail sales report.
Hercules Capital (NYSE:HTGC) is more of a traditional BDC than Friday's recommendation, but with a very specific focus on early to mid-stage technology companies.
Compass Diversified Holdings (NYSE:CODI) is a holding company that buys, develops and sometimes sells companies that are strongly branded industrial or consumer product firms that generate lots of cashflows.
California is in crisis due to rolling electrical power blackouts. Households and businesses are facing power losses with no notice, creating chaos on top of the existing COVID-19 devastation.
Rising interest rates are a short-term drag on dividend payers like Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), so if you’re holding shares of KO, we recommend using this as an entry opportunity to pull in some extra income by selling covered calls.
If you, like us, are holding shares of Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), this is a trade to earn you extra income while the stock recovers.
Corporate and municipal bond ETFs offer better returns and more protection thanks in part to the Federal Reserve.
We still think there is plenty of bullishness left in the market, and rather than recommend a position on a new stock, we want to revisit Starbucks (SBUX).
