Why We Like it:
DRC has been in a bullish uptrend since its lows in the fall of 2008. The stock is now finding support at its 50-day SMA and looks poised to test its highs from 2007. We have a good reference point to place a stop below yesterday's lows at $36.15. Currently, the primary target is $39.95 which should produce a profit of +90% on options positions.

Suggested Position: Buy November $40.00 CALL, current ask $0.75
