Company Description

Why We Like It:
Shares of this business software stock appear to be in breakout mode. Friday saw a breakout past resistance near the 50-dma. Broken resistance near $78 provided new support today and CTXS closed above the $80.00 mark.

The intraday high today was $80.67. I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $80.75. We'll use a stop loss at $77.75. Our target is $86.50.

Trigger @ 80.75
