NEW DIRECTIONAL CALL PLAYS
LyondellBasell Industries - LYB - close: 79.17 change: +1.09
Stop Loss: 77.75
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 4 to 6 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below
Why We Like It:
LYB is in the basic materials sector. This Dutch company makes chemicals.
Big picture this stock is in a long-term up trend. The last couple of months have seen LYB consolidate sideways below resistance in the $79.50-80.00 area. LYB's disappointing earnings report in late October did not derail the long-term rally. Just a couple of weeks ago RBC Capital upgraded LYB to their "top pick" and give it a $110 price target as they expect earnings to accelerate.
I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $80.25. If triggered our short-term target is $85.00.
Trigger @ 80.25
