New Trade : EMC

Stock / Symbol: E M C Corp / EMC

Price at trade post: $24.36
Option Strategy: [private_monthly]vertical call spread[/private_monthly]

Reasoning: EMC, which offers enterprise storage systems and software and also owns an 80% stake in VMW, has seen it's stock drop nearly 19% from its recent high of $30 in March. This is a solid company, wtih good revenues, and a fundamental value of over $30. We think the stock is oversold and will rebound here. After looking at diagonals, iron condors, broken wing butterflies, and bull put spreads, we've decided on a simple vertical call spread as the amount risked is nearly equivalent to the loses we'd have realized on the other strategies at the necessary stop levels.
