They want your vote, your money, your bank account number, your identity. And yet, more than 75% of U.S. companies aren’t prepared for the next cyber attack…

Trading Summary:

  • Buy PFPT up to $77, as well as the May 2017 75 calls up to $3.10.

  • Buy PANW stock at today’s price, as well as the March 2017 135 calls up to $7.

Baltimore, Md., 1/5/2017: LinkedIn, Yahoo, Hyatt, Wendy’s, Oracle, Verizon, Citibank… Most likely, even you have been hacked—considering more than 50% of U.S. adults allegedly have had their digital data compromised one way or another over the last year.

Yet few are prepared. Even less of us realize there are more than half a million attacks happening each and every day.

And it’s already cost us an average of $400 billion a year.

By 2019, the bill could come at a cost of $2.1 trillion.

And yet, many of the very companies that can help keep us safe have gone unnoticed, unfairly beaten down, despite the threat. But they’re all a steal at current prices, including Palo Alto Networks (PANW) and Proofpoint (PFPT), which is technically oversold on MACD, RSI and Money Flow.

My trading advice today: Buy the PANW stock at today’s price, as well as the March 2017 135 calls up to $7.

Also, buy PFPT up to $77, as well as the May 2017 75 calls up to $3.10.
