Editor's Note:

Readers may want to keep an eye on Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) as a potential trade. I was tempted to add it tonight with a trigger to buy calls at $81.55 or $82.05. More conservative traders may want to wait for a new close over its 10-dma before considering positions. COG can be a volatile stock. If you trade it consider keeping positions small to limit your risk.

Company Description

Why We Like It:
JBHT is a transport stock that is ignoring the weakness in the transportation sector. While the $TRAN index is breaking down shares of JBHT are poised to breakout past resistance near $44.00.

I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $44.35. If triggered our multi-week target is $48.25. JBHT doesn't move super fast so give yourself time for the trade to work. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for JBHT is bullish with a $63 target.

Trigger @ 44.35
