Bullish Near-Term Setup In Wells Fargo Shares

Today, 10,000+ WFC Mar 20 $56 calls traded with the vast majority being bought for $0.35-$0.45 each, against no previous open interest. For every put that traded in the session, 2.5 calls traded (18,568 total).

Talk of a Fed Funds rate hike later this year is bullish for financial companies like Wells Fargo and the stock remains relatively inexpensive. WFC trades at a P/E ratio of 13. 25x (2015 estimates), P/S ratio of 3.42x, and a P/B ratio of 1.70x. The top line is projected to increase 3.9% this year and accelerate 6.1% in 2016 ($93B).

Looking at the daily chart above we can see another 1% or so rise in shares would confirm a technical breakout (confirming the fundamental analysis and options activity). A low risk way to play it would be via Mar 20 $55 or $56 calls or via longer dated bull call spreads (July $55/$60 call spread) for a favorable reward/risk ratio to the higher $50's/low $60's.
