Why We Like It:
We hesitate to add another call candidate to the newsletter when the major averages are looking so overbought and due for a rest. However, the pattern in NTLI looks pretty bullish and today's very strong volume behind the rally suggests that the stock might be poised for a big breakout. We are suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $27.41, which is above the September 11th, 2006 high. This should be a breakout over resistance and clear the way for a run towards the $30.00 region. If triggered at $27.41 our target is the $29.90-30.00 range. We do not want to hold over the early November (8th?) earnings report.

Suggested Options:
We are suggesting the November or December calls. Our trigger to open positions is at $27.41.
