  • Special: This May Soon Be the Most Talked-About $3 Stock in America
  • Action to take: The company has shown some impressive revenue growth, up nearly 26 percent in the past year. And we like that insiders own over 11.5 percent of the company, as well as the overall value and insider buying in the food space right now.

    With shares trading at 23 times forward earnings, they’re a bit pricey, but share did just sell off following an earnings miss last week. We see the potential for shares to move back to $30, so any buy under $25 could be good for a 20 percent rally in the next few months.

    Among the limited options trades available, the August 2020 $30 calls, trading with a bid/ask near $1.15, or $115 per contract, could give traders the best potential returns on a recovery from the recent earnings slump.
