A great potential trade opportunity just popped up and I wanted to get it to you as
quickly as possible. The ticker is ABBV. While it might be tempting to jump in and just go
buy shares, I am going to explain why it is a good set up and how options offer a great
way to leverage this potential move.

AbbVie (ABBV) has become one of the top-most pharma companies after it acquired Allergan. The deal has transformed AbbVie’s portfolio by lowering its dependence on Humira, its flagship product. AbbVie has one of the most popular cancer drugs in its portfolio, Imbruvica and its newest immunology drugs Skyrizi and Rinvoq position it well for long-term growth.
