NEW DIRECTIONAL CALL PLAYS
OpenTable, Inc. - OPEN - close: 52.21 change: +0.83
Stop Loss: 49.40
Current Option Gain/Loss: + 0.0%
Time Frame: 4 to 6 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below
Why We Like It:
Shares of OPEN displayed relative strength today. The stock has been consolidating under major resistance at the $50.00 level for months. On the weekly chart it looks like a significant bottom for OPEN. The current bullish breakout past $50.00 could spark a short squeeze. The most recent data listed short interest at 42% of the very small 19.4 million share float.
I am suggesting new bullish positions now with a stop loss at $49.40. However, I would seriously consider waiting for a dip into the $51.50 area as a better entry point before launching positions.
Our multi-week target is $58.00.
FYI: The Point & Figure chart for OPEN is bullish with a $73 target.
