The shares of video game name Electronic Arts Inc (NASDAQ:EA) are forming a massive ascending triangle pattern on the charts, with support from the 20-day moving average. The security has also found a floor at both its year-to-date and year-over-year breakeven levels, making now an ideal scenario to buy EA calls.

Though the brokerage bunch is already mostly bullish on the security, there is plenty of room for upgrades going forward. Of the 21 analysts in question, eight still carry a tepid “hold” rating.
 
A shift in sentiment over in the options pits would create additional tailwinds for Electronic Arts stock, too. This is per the equity’s 50-day put/call volume ratio at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), which sits in the 98th percentile of its annual range. Echoing this, the equity's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) has been drifting higher, which has been a bullish signal for EA in the past.
 

Our recommended call has a leverage ratio of 8.8, and will double on a 10.5% jump in the underlying equity with a move to the $50 billion market cap level.
