Company Description

Why We Like It:
Energy stocks were showing strength today and the oil services were outperforming its peers in the oil sector. HOS is an oil service company. Shares delivered a strong +2.8% gain. The stock is poised to breakout past resistance near the $45.00 level.

I am suggesting a trigger to launch bullish positions at $45.25. If triggered our target is $49.50. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for HOS is bullish with a long-term $71.00 target.

Trigger @ 45.25
