Jabil Inc (NYSE:JBL) entered the earnings confessional this morning, reporting fiscal third-quarter earnings and revenue that beat analysts estimates. The Apple (AAPL) supplier's Diversified Manufacturing Services (DMS) unit saw a rise in revenue, though its Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) saw a slight decrease. As a result, the shares of JBL are up 5.1% to trade at $34.45.

Since its three-year low of $17.63 in mid-March, JBL is up around 95%. Jabil stock is set to close above its 20-day moving average for a fourth consecutive day, though it's yet again testing its footing at the 160-day moving average -- a trendline JBL has been dancing around for several weeks.

There is a strong preference for calls in the options pits. JBL's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 2.86 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) ranks in the 85th percentile of its annual range. This means that there is a healthier-than-usual appetite for long calls of late.

In the wake of this upbeat earnings report, 1,296 calls and 667 puts have crossed the tape so far today -- three times the intraday average. Leading the charge is the monthly  June 38 call, followed by the 33 call from the same series.

Analysts are mostly optimistic about Jabil stock. Of the seven in coverage, all but two rate it a "strong buy." Meanwhile, the 12-month consensus price target of $35.25 is a small 1.7% premium to current levels.
