Company Description

Why We Like It:
Right now entertainment and content companies have been showing strength. VIAB is one of them with the stock trading near all-time highs today. VIAB has a long-term bullish trend of higher lows and higher highs. The last few weeks have seen shares consolidate sideways in the $80-85 zone. Now VIAB is poised for a breakout.

The September 27th intraday high was $85.22. I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $85.30. If triggered our target is $89.50. However, we will plan to exit prior to VIAB's earnings report in mid November.

Trigger @ 85.30
