Company Description

Why We Like It:
VRSN is an Internet technology company. The stock has been consolidating sideways at multi-year highs the last couple of weeks. Tuesday produced a bullish breakout over resistance at $44.00 and shares closed at ten-year highs.

I am suggesting bullish positions now but only if both VRSN and the S&P 500 index open positive on Thursday morning.

Do not enter position unless VRSN and the S&P 500 are both positive at the open

Suggested Position: buy VRSN stock @ (see above)

- or -

buy the Aug $45 call (VRSN1218H45) current ask $1.30
