Company Description

Why We Like It:
CNC is in the healthcare sector. The company provides managed care and specialty services. A number of healthcare names rallied after the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released their proposed 2015 payment and policy update. Shares of CNC surged +3.0% and closed at new four-month highs.

I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $63.60. If triggered our target is $67.75. More aggressive investors may want to aim higher since the Point & Figure chart for CNC is bullish with a $78 target.

Trigger @ 63.60
