Company Description

Why We Like It:
Shares of CTSH, a business software and services company, have been consolidating sideways for over two months. Shares were showing relative strength today and look poised to breakout over resistance near $78.00. I am suggesting we use a trigger to buy calls at $78.25. If triggered we'll use a stop loss at $74.75. Our upside targets will be $82.25 and $84.75.

FYI: The Point & Figure chart for CTSH is bullish with a $105 target. Plus, a breakout past $78 would produce a new quadruple top breakout buy signal.

Trigger @ 78.25
