DRIV - Digital River $39.66

Digital River (NASDAQ:DRIV) is a worldwide provider
of comprehensive electronic-commerce outsourcing
solutions. As an e-commerce outsource provider,
the firm enables its clients to access its proprietary
electronic-commerce system over the Internet.

Digital River has developed a technology platform that
allows the company to provide a suite of electronic
commerce services, including development and hosting,
transaction processing, fraud screening, digital delivery,
integration to physical fulfillment and customer service.
Digital River also provides analytical marketing and
merchandising services to assist clients in increasing
Web page view traffic to, and sales through, their Web
commerce systems.

Shares of DRIV soared Thursady after the company
reported that fourth-quarter profit more than doubled
as revenue rose 77%, due to more businesses using
Digital River's Web commerce platform to sell products
online. Joel Ronning, chief executive officer, said the
company would keep growing in 2005 and investors
were elated with the news. The heavy-volume rally
helped DRIV resume its recent bullish trend and with
only three weeks until option expiration, this position
offers favorable risk/reward for "speculative" traders.
Consider targeting a higher premium initially to take
advantage of any pull-back and increase the return
on investment.
