  • Special: The Only 8 Stocks You Need for 2020
  • Shares of Camping World Holdings have dropped over 63 percent in the past year as the company has struggled with profitability and as recreational vehicles have fallen out of favor with the market on fears of an economic slowdown. At current prices, shares trade at just 8 times forward earnings, and the company pays a dividend yield just north of 4 percent.

    Action to take: Shares are an attractive buy up to $9.00. At that price, investors will still get a dividend yield of 4 percent, and any changing market conditions favorable for recreational vehicles could lead shares to head far higher.

    Given the large size of insider buying, traders may want to buy the March 2020 $9 calls. At a price of $1.40, or just $140 per contract, these options could double or triple if shares continue to move higher on the post-insider bounce.
