The set-up: Cree Inc. (CREE) is a gap-down reversal play, which has been flagging out of consolidation to the upside. This is a purely technical swing trade and while it’s a stock I have never traded before – Cree Inc. makes lighting and semiconductor products – it’s my bread-and-butter entry technique, the kind of thing I go looking for and am comfortable using any time and any place I see it.
The play: Given current market conditions, I have been using tight stops; I’d use a break of Monday’s close of $35.07 as a stop loss. That said, CREE may have a continuation pattern set-up that could push shares to $37, creating enormous upside potential — the 10 percent plus I always look for — with little risk.
I’d be a buyer of January’s at-the-money call options if CREE gives me a 10/20 exponential moving average crossover on a 5-minute chart early in today’s session.
