Stop Loss: 80.75
Target(s): 89.50
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 3 to 6 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
KORS is in the services sector. The company is a specialty retailer for apparel and accessories. The company's latest earnings report on November 5th was better than expected. Following its results the stock has garnered a number of upgraded price targets in the $90s. The recent breakout past resistance at $80.00 is bullish and could fuel more short covering. The most recent data listed short interest at 28% of the 42 million share float.

Friday's high was $82.75. I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $83.00. If triggered our target is $89.50. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for KORS is bullish with a $91 target.

Company Description

Why We Like It:
RRGB is in the services sector. The company runs a chain of casual-dining burger restaurants. RRGB reported earnings in early November that beat expectations. The stock spiked higher on the results. Since then shares have seen some post-earnings report profit taking but traders started buying the dip in the $79-80 zone. Now it looks like the consolidation is over and RRGB is poised to resume its up trend.
