Yesterday, we looked at a Daily Price Chart for Hyatt Hotels Corp., noting that the stock has been making a series of new 52-Week Highs recently.
For today’s Trade of the Day we will be looking at a Daily Price chart for CDW Corp. stock symbol: CDW.
Before breaking down CDW’s daily price chart let’s first review which products and services are offered by the company.
CDW Corporation provides information technology (IT) solutions in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. It operates through three segments: Corporate, Small Business, and Public. The company offers discrete hardware and software products and services, as well as integrated IT solutions, including on-premise, hybrid, and cloud capabilities across data center and networking, digital workspace, and security.
Now, let’s begin to break down the Daily Price chart for CDW. Below is a Daily Price Chart with the price line displayed by an OHLC bar.
Buy CDW Stock
The Daily Price chart above shows that CDW stock began reaching a series of higher highs and higher lows since mid-January.
This pattern of bullish trading suggests the stock will march on to a further advance.
You see, after a stock makes a series of two or more higher highs and higher lows, the stock typically continues its price up trend and should be purchased.
Our initial price target for CDW stock is 220.00 per share.
106.9% Profit Potential for CDW Option
Now, since CDW stock is currently making a series of higher highs and higher lows this means the stock’s bullish rally will likely continue. Let’s use the Hughes Optioneering calculator to look at the potential returns for a CDW call option purchase.
The Call Option Calculator will calculate the profit/loss potential for a call option trade based on the price change of the underlying stock/ETF at option expiration in this example from a flat CDW price to a 12.5% increase.
The Optioneering Team uses the 1% Rule to select an option strike price with a higher percentage of winning trades. In the following CDW option example, we used the 1% Rule to select the CDW option strike price but out of fairness to our paid option service subscribers we don’t list the strike price used in the profit/loss calculation.
Trade with Higher Accuracy
When you use the 1% Rule to select a CDW in-the-money option strike price, CDW stock only has to increase 1% for the option to breakeven and start profiting! Remember, if you purchase an at-the-money or out-of-the-money call option and the underlying stock closes flat at option expiration it will result in a 100% loss for your option trade! In this example, if CDW stock is flat at 213.01 at option expiration, it will only result in a 5.2% loss for the CDW option compared to a 100% loss for an at-the-money or out-of-the-money call option.
Using the 1% Rule to select an option strike price can result in a higher percentage of winning trades compared to at-the-money or out-of-the-money call options. This higher accuracy can give you the discipline needed to become a successful option trader and can help avoid 100% losses when trading options.
The goal of this example is to demonstrate the powerful profit potential available from trading options compared to stocks.
The prices and returns represented below were calculated based on the current stock and option pricing for CDW on 2/17/2023 before commissions.
When you purchase a call option, there is no limit on the profit potential of the call if the underlying stock continues to move up in price.
For this specific call option, the calculator analysis below reveals if CDW stock increases 5.0% at option expiration to 223.66 (circled), the call option would make 50.8% before commission.
If CDW stock increases 10.0% at option expiration to 234.31 (circled), the call option would make 106.9% before commission and outperform the stock return more than 10 to 1*.
The leverage provided by call options allows you to maximize potential returns on bullish stocks.
