NEW DIRECTIONAL CALL PLAYS

Alliant Techsystems Inc. - ATK - close: 116.35 change: +2.42

Stop Loss: 113.90
Target(s): 120.00
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 3 to 4 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
ATK is in the industrial goods sector. The company manufacturers products for the aerospace and defense industries. The company's last earnings report was bullish. ATK beat Wall Street's bottom line estimate by a wide margin and beat the revenue estimate. Management then raised their guidance.

You could certainly argue that ATK is overbought with a multi-week rally but thus far the momentum does not seem to be slowing down. The stock does have potential resistance at its 2007 highs in the $120.50-121.00 zone. I am setting our target at $120.00. More aggressive traders could aim higher. Use a trigger at $116.55.

FYI: ATK will begin trading ex-dividend on November 18th, 2013. The quarterly cash dividend should be 26 cents.

Trigger @ 116.55

United Parcel Service - UPS - close: 101.04 change: +1.22

Stop Loss: 98.45
Target(s): 108.00
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 4 to 8 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
UPS is in the services sector. The company provides package delivery and transportation logistics around the globe. Wall Street seems to be growing more optimistic about the upcoming holiday shopping season and expectations are it will be bullish for the delivery companies like UPS and FDX. Shares of UPS have been consolidating sideways the last few days under round-number resistance near the $100 mark. Today's session marks a bullish breakout past resistance and a new all-time high.

I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $101.25. More nimble traders may want to consider waiting for a potential dip near $100.50 instead. If triggered our multi-week target is $108.00.

Trigger @ 101.25
