Editor's Note:
I've had my eye on this stock for a long time and shares appear to be on the move again. Yet instead of correcting CHRW is breaking out again.

Why We Like It:
CHRW is breaking out again. The stock has been a big winner since it broke out over resistance near $62 back in July. Since then CHRW has seen a couple of consolidations. Shares just spent over a month consolidating sideways and did not see that much of a pull back during the market's recent decline. Now the stock is breaking out from its consolidation pattern. Aggressive traders may want to go ahead and buy calls now. I am suggesting we look for a little dip with a pull back to $71.75. If triggered we'll use a stop loss under short-term support at $69.90. Our first target is $74.75. Our second, longer-term target is $79.00. FYI: The Point & Figure chart is very bullish with a $92 target.

Trigger @ 71.75 (I prefer the January calls)

Suggested Position: Buy the December $75.00 calls (CHRW1018L75)

- or -

Suggested Position: Buy the January $75.00 calls (CHRW1122A75)
