NEW DIRECTIONAL CALL PLAYS
Visa - V - close: 60.67 change: +0.59 stop: 56.40
Why We Like It:
Short-term the trend in Visa is down. Shares have fallen from $70 to $60 in the last four weeks for a 14% correction. The stock is currently testing support near $60.00 and its 100-dma. Yet I don't want to buy calls yet. This is a volatile market. I suspect that V will break the $60.00 level only to find stronger support near $57.50. We're only trying to catch a bounce since the short-term trend is still down.
The plan is to buy calls at $58.00 with a tight stop at $56.40. Our exit target is $63.50.
Aggressive traders can use July options but they expire in less than two weeks. I'm suggesting the August calls. Remember, our trigger to buy calls is at $58.00.
