CIT Group Inc. CIT Stock As A Short-Term Trade Using Options
I am looking at CIT options, eyeing the 10/15 expiration date.
From the calls perspective, the $50 strike price looks good, being in-the-money & much more liquid than the $55 contracts; although the $55’s also look appealing if this momentum continues.
Overall sentiment on CIT stock looks bullish, as the Open Interest on the 10/15 puts is near nonexistent compared to the calls.
With that said, the $55 strike puts are currently looking like the best option.
Tying It All Together
Overall, CIT Group Inc. stock has many opportunities in the near & long-term.
In the near-term, momentum looks set to continue powering their share price higher over the coming weeks.
In the long-run, CIT stock’s fundamentals are appealing, and their Dividend Yield looks very safe.
