Buy Boeing (BA) December $72.50 Calls for $1.15 or better



The October jobs report came out better than expected today, continuing the trend of solid job growth we’ve been seeing recently.  However, the market is pulling back on profit taking after yesterday’s big climb.  Several large stocks are down despite the good news on the jobs front.

One such company is Boeing (BA).

In BA’s recently released earnings report, the company beat analysts’ expectations for earnings per share and raised its earnings forecast.  Yet, the stock dropped on general concerns over the airline industry and the economy.

With today’s good jobs news, we should see investors returning to big industrial companies like Boeing.  More importantly, the stock just reached an important support level and is set to climb to the 50-day moving average and then the 200-moving average.

I expect a quick move back to those key moving averages.  However, we’re going to go with December calls this time around so we don’t bump up against time decay issues in November options.
