Company Description

Why We Like It:
GWRE produces software for the property and casualty insurance industry. After consolidating sideways in a wide range over the past several months it looks like GWRE is breaking out. I do want to warn you that GWRE can be volatile so we want to limit our position size to reduce our risk.

I am suggesting bullish positions now at the open tomorrow. More conservative traders could try and wait and buy a dip near $30.50 instead. Our multi-week target is $34.50.

Suggested Position: buy GWRE stock @ (the open)

- (or for more adventurous traders, try this option) -

buy the Oct $30 call (GWRE1220j30) current ask $2.60
