Why We Like It:
This is an earnings lottery play. POWR will report earnings on March 11th. They have already preannounced the backlog will be better than previously expected. The stock is currently $7.62 and the $7.50 March call is only 60-cents. I believe the company will announced decent earnings and move sharply higher. The chart already shows upside pressure building. A positive number could generate some additional short covering. With the cheap option already in the month it will not take much of a move to get a nice return.

BUY POWR with a stop at $7.30.

Option buyers:
