National Oilwell Varco, Inc. - NOV - close: 83.56 change: +1.14

Stop Loss: 81.25
Target(s): 88.50
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
NOV is in the basic materials sector. The company provides equipment to the oil and gas drilling and oilfield services industries. Traders bought the dip at rising technical support this morning. Shares surged to a new 52-week high. Oil-related stocks have not been hindered by the pullback in oil prices. It looks like NOV could make a run toward the $90 area.

Today's high was $83.60. I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $83.75. If triggered our multi-week target is $88.50.

Trigger @ 83.75
