When we last checked in with semiconductor concern Broadcom Inc (NASDAQ:AVGO), the stock was flashing a bullish signal before Memorial Day weekend. Today, AVGO is up 2.8% to trade at $289.24, after the company inked a new supply arrangement with Apple (AAPL) for the next two years.

Broadcom stock is heading towards its seventh straight win. After pulling back to their 320-day moving average to start June, the shares bounced from there and have now toppled their 30-day trendline for the first time since early May. Nevertheless, AVGO has a ways to go to get back to its May 1 record high of $323.20. 

Analysts have been overwhelmingly bullish toward the tech stock. There are 26 brokerages in coverage of AVGO, and 19 rate it a "strong buy," with zero "sells" on the books. Plus, the consensus 12-month price target of $317.62 is a 13.4% premium to last night's closing perch of $280.21. 

In the options pits, data from the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) shows a 10-day call/put volume ratio of 1.74, indicating that calls have outpaced puts by a nearly 2-to-1 ratio in the last two weeks. 

By the numbers, though, near-term options are somewhat pricey, based on volatility expectations. To be more specific, AVGO stock's 30-day at-the-money implied volatility of 41.3% ranks in the 94th annual percentile.
