The shares of CyberArk Software Ltd (NASDAQ:CYBR) are up 2.2% at $105.20, after an upgrade to "buy" from "neutral" from Monness, Crespi, Hardt. The firm also set a price target of $120, which is higher than the 12-month consensus price target of $115.33 -- already a 12% premium to last night's close. 

CYBR was trading sideways before today's pop, with pressure at $104 formerly keeping a cap on gains since mid-June. The security managed to reclaim its 40-day moving average late last week, and the equity is now up 26.4% in the last three months. It should be noted, however, that pressure at the 200-day still looms overhead.

Most analysts are looking confident on CyberArk. Coming into today, 14 out of 19 analysts in coverage called the security a "buy" or better, with the remaining five at a lukewarm "hold" rating. Meanwhile, short interest rose 13.9% during the last reporting period. The 2.3 million shares sold short now account for 6.1% of CYBR's available float, or nearly four days to cover at the stock's average pace of trading. 

While overall volume is quite low, options could be a good way to go when weighing in on the software company's next move. This is per CyberArk's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 42%, which stands higher than just 16% of all other readings from the past year, implying that options players are pricing in relatively low volatility expectations at the moment.
