Company Description

Why We Like It:
WDC is in the technology sector. The company makes data storage products. We recently traded WDC with calls and caught part of the move toward $80. The stock has not seen much profit taking. Yesterday's session produced a bearish engulfing candlestick reversal pattern but there was no follow through today. Shares look like they are coiling for a bullish breakout past resistance near $80.00.

Tonight we're suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $80.25. If triggered our short-term target is $84.75. More aggressive traders may want to aim higher since the Point & Figure chart for WDC is bullish with a $100 target.

NOTE: I am listing the 2014 January $80 calls but you might want to consider the April $85 calls instead to give you more time.

Trigger @ 80.25

- Suggested Positions -

Buy the 2014 Jan $80 call (WDC1418a80) current ask $2.43
