Company Description

Why We Like It:
Most of the energy sector was hit with profit taking today but GPOR displayed relative strength with a +1.5% gain. The stock has spent the last week and a half digesting its late November gains. Now GPOR is hitting new all-time record highs.

I am suggesting we use a trigger to open bullish positions at $39.25. If triggered we will target the $44.00 level. More conservative traders may want to wait for GPOR to rally past $40.00 since the $40 level could be round-number resistance.

Trigger @ 39.25

Suggested Position: buy GPOR stock @ (trigger)
