NEW DIRECTIONAL CALL PLAYS
Phillips 66 - PSX - close: 80.60 change: +1.36
Stop Loss: 78.70
Target(s): to be determined
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: Exit PRIOR to earnings on April 30th
New Positions: Yes, see below
Why We Like It:
PSX is in the basic materials sector. The company business is divided between four segments: chemicals, refining, midstream, and marketing.
The stock has been showing some relative strength and just broke out past resistance near $80.00 to close at all-time highs.
We'd like to see a little more follow through. Today's intraday high as $80.91. I'm suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $81.10. We're not setting an exit target yet but plan on exiting prior to PSX's earnings report on April 30th.
FYI: The Point & Figure chart for PSX is bullish with a $97 target.
Trigger @ 81.10
