Company Description

Why We Like It:
LMT is in the industrial goods sector. The company is a major defense contractor. Last week shares of LMT found support near $160 and started to bounce. That rebound continued today with a +0.77% gain in the face of widespread market declines.

We are suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $164.35. If triggered I'm setting two different targets. Our conservative target is $169.75. Our more aggressive target is $174.75.

Vulcan Materials - VMC - close: 68.36 change: +0.43

Stop Loss: 66.25
Target(s): 74.50
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 4 to 6 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
VMC is in the industrial goods sector. The company makes construction materials, asphalt, and concrete mix. The stock shot higher in early February following a better than expected earnings report where VMC beat Wall Street's estimates on both the top and bottom line. Shares spent most of the month consolidating sideways and digesting those gains. Now it appears VMC's rally has begun anew.

We are suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $68.75. If triggered our target is $74.50.

Trigger @ 68.75
