Price at trade post: $29.74

Reasoning: With decent fundamentals and a good looking chart, we're going with a [private_monthly]diagonal call spread here on X. This trade allows for a 5.5% pullback in the stock (by Apr 20) without losing money and has some decent upside in the trade. We'll look to exit the trade once we're up about 10%. We expect to be in the trade for 3 to 4 weeks.[/private_monthly]
