NEW DIRECTIONAL CALL PLAYS

Polaris Industries, Inc. - PII - close: 141.57 change: +1.98

Stop Loss: 138.90
Target(s): 149.00
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
PII is in the consumer goods sector. The company manufacturers off-road vehicles and snowmobiles. The stock has been trending higher for quite a while with investors buying dips at its rising 50-dma. This past week saw PII breakout past resistance at the $140 level. We suspect this upward momentum will continue with PII now at a all-time high.

Use a trigger at $142.25 to buy calls. Our multi-week target is $149.00. More aggressive traders could aim higher since the Point & Figure chart for PII is bullish with a $158 target.

Trigger @ 142.25

Tractor Supply Co. - TSCO - close: 74.92 change: +0.85

Stop Loss: 73.75
Target(s): 79.75
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: EXIT PRIOR to January expiration
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
TSCO is in the services sector. The company operates over 1,200 retail farm and ranch stores. The big spike in volume on Friday was TSCO being added to the NASDAQ-100 index.

The stock is in a long-term up trend. Yet shares just spent the last eight weeks consolidating sideways so it should be ready for the next leg higher. Friday's session saw TSCO flirting with a breakout past resistance at the $75.00 level. The intraday high on Friday was $75.50. I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $75.60. If triggered our short-term target is $79.75. More aggressive traders may want to aim higher since the Point & Figure chart just produced a new quadruple top breakout buy signal and is forecasting an $87 target.

I am listing the January calls. I'd rather play February options but TSCO doesn't have any Februarys or Marchs available yet and the bid/ask spread on the April options is getting a bit wide. That means we only have four weeks on these January calls.

Trigger @ $75.60

Wyndham Worldwide - WYN - close: 72.97 change: +1.02

Stop Loss: 71.75
Target(s): 78.50
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 3 to 4 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
WYN is in the services sector. The company operates with three divisions. They have a lodging division, a vacation exchange and rental business, and vacation ownership division. It's been a good year for WYN. The company's last earnings report was better than expected and management raised guidance. Shares have been stair-stepping higher the last few months and WYN looks poised for the next step up.

The stock is hovering just below short-term resistance at $73.00. We are suggesting at trigger to buy calls at $73.25. If triggered our target is $78.50. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for WYN is bullish with a $102 target.
