Why We Like It:
CPO has spent over two weeks consolidating sideways under resistance at the $53.00 level. The stock looks poised to breakout soon and when it does we want to hop on board. I'm suggesting a trigger to launch small bullish positions at $53.25. Our target is $57.50. However, we will plan on exiting ahead of the early May earnings report.

Let's keep our position size small since CPO has a trendline of higher highs it has yet to break through. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for CPO is bullish with a $67 target.

Trigger @ $53.25 (Small Positions)

Suggested Position: buy CPO stock @ $53.25
