Why We Like It:
It may be time to speculate on another leg higher in RIMM. The company put out a press release this morning stating that their Blackberry platform has surpassed the three million subscriber mark. The company's press release said the last six months saw more than one million new customers. Short-term technicals like the RSI and stochastics are bullish and its MACD indicator has produced a new buy signal (as of Friday). Now before we continue we feel the need to remind readers that RIMM can be very volatile and it tends to be boom or bust for option plays. This is a high-risk candidate and traders should plan their strategy accordingly. Not only does RIMM itself make this a high risk play but the NASDAQ, while inching higher, is still under resistance at the 2000 level and its 200-dma's. We suggest that readers use a trigger at $70.51 to open the play. We'll target a move toward the $76.00-77.00 range since the P&F chart shows resistance near $76.00. Our initial stop loss will be $66.85. This is a wide stop. More conservative traders should consider a tighter stop. Really conservative players probably want to consider NOT playing this candidate.
