    Action to take: Investors may like Riley shares here, as they’ve started to trend higher in recent weeks but still remain substantially undervalued compared to other oil stocks.

    Plus, Riley pays a 4.4% dividend at current prices, offering a relatively yield in addition to capital gains.

    For traders, the September $35 calls, last trading for about $1.75, could see mid-to-high double-digit returns in the coming months. Traders may want to take profits if the option moves in-the-money.
