Globus Medical (GMED) Offers an Appealing Entry Point

Several analysts are looking for more upside in GMED, take a look at these two analysts who have recently revised up their upside targets – Oppenheimer Analysts Give Globus Medical a $57.00 Price Target and Let’s Make Some Money With Globus Medical.

From a technical perspective, GMED is seen pulling back in the past few sessions to a well-respected horizontal level found at $52.35.  The level has previously acted as both resistance and support, including during a gap down in June.  In addition to the horizontal level, the 200-day moving average is in play and held the stock higher on a dip late in the week.

If you agree there’s further upside ahead for GMED, consider this trade which is a bet that the stock will continue to advance over the next seven weeks, or at least not decline very much.

Buy To Open GMED 21SEP18 50 Puts (GMED180921P50)
Sell To Open GMED 21SEP18 52.5 Puts (GMED180921P52.5) for a credit of $0.89 (selling a vertical)

This price was $0.02 less than the mid-point of the option spread when GMED was trading near $52.50.  Unless the stock rallies quickly from here, you should be able to get close to this amount.

Your commission on this trade will only be $2.50 per spread (the rate charged by thinkorswim for Terry’s Tips’ subscribers).  Each contract would then yield $86.50 and your broker would charge a $250 maintenance fee, making your investment $163.50 ($250 – $86.50).  If GMED closes at any price above $52.50 on September 21, both options would expire worthless, and your return on the spread would be 53% (403% annualized).

This week we are looking at another of the Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) Top 50 List companies.  We use this list in one of our options portfolios to spot outperforming stocks and place option spreads that take advantage of the momentum. Terry Palo Alto Networks (PANW) Breaks to Record Highs, What’s Next? Palo Alto Networks has seen a remarkable rise in its stock price over the last few years and several articles on The Motley Fool suggest there will be further upside.  Here are the latest two – Palo Alto Networks’ Bull Run Probably Won’t Be Ending Anytime Soon and Forget Cryptocurrencies: You’re Better Off Buying These 3 Stocks. On a daily chart, PANW appears to be consolidating in a range since around the middle of May.  However, a closer look reveals a notable technical break.  Range support near $200 wasn’t just important because of the psychological implications, the level also triggered a sharp turn in 2015 that led to a two-year correction.  Although there have been marginal breaches below the level since the stock price initially climbed above it a few months ago, bears have been unable to drive the stock price below it on a sustained basis.  To the upside, resistance near $216 had capped rallies in June but the recent bullish break of the level suggests the uptrend has resumed.
