Is aynone out there watching JBHT?? This looks like a bargain to me below 20.

Looks like you were right. Now that cyclicals have made a convincing run - how is all this stuff they are supposed to produce going to get to its destination? Shipping... The transports are showing signs of life (this one was up on a down day...)

This stock has options... so a way to get leverage out of this stock is

short the nov 25 puts for nearly 6

and buy the nov 22.5 calls for around 3.5

The downside of this position is you will end up buying the stock for 25 (minus the 6 premium for a total of 19) and the calls might end up worthless. The upside is you will have a synthetic JBHT for a cost of $-2.00
