On Friday’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of Starbucks (SBUX). SBUX has outperformed the market during the end of last year’s selloff, showing strong relative strength. Coupled with a decade long bullish triangle formation that is near its resistance, expectations are for a continuation higher. Expecting SBUX to break higher, Michael Khouw suggests buying an April 65 Call for a $2.50 Debit. As of Friday’s close, these calls were trading at a $2.52 Debit.
