New Trade : HSY

Stock / Symbol: The Hershey Co. / HSY

Option Strategy: [private_monthly]broken wing butterfly call spread[/private_monthly]
Price at trade post: $61.15

Reasoning: We're always looking for those "Steady Eddie" stocks that work very well for [private_monthly]butterfly and calendar spreads. We think that HSY is another good candidate. Since we're expecting a slight pullback to $60, and because the option strikes are just in 5 point increments, we're going with a broken wing butterfly designed to provide maximum yield at $60 and allow us to easily exit the trade should the stock continue up to the $62 level. We'll look to exit the trade once we're up about 10% - 12%. Since this trade is not easily adjusted, we suggest you closely adhere to our suggested stop levels.[/private_monthly]
