Dell Technologies Inc (NYSE:DELL) is up 3.7% at $98.75 this afternoon, after Goldman Sachs added the stock to its "Conviction Buy" list. The analyst in question praised the company's financial standing, including its debt payment plan and cash flow. Plus, the brokerage's $137 price target is a healthy 44% premium to DELL's close last Friday.

This bull note is made more relevant by the fact that analysts were already optimistic toward the equity coming into today. More specifically, nine of the 11 in question carried a "buy" or better rating on DELL, while two said "hold." What's more, Dell Technologies stock's 12-month consensus target price of $118.21 is 20.1% higher than its current perch.

The security's usually quiet options pits are exploding with bullish activity today. So far, 26,000 calls and 5,431 puts have crossed the tape, which is six times what is typically seen at this point. Most popular is the September 105 call, followed by the 100 call in the same series, with new positions being opened at the former.

The shares seem to have found their footing at the $94 level since cooling off from a June 10, all-time high of $104.62. Today's pop has also set the equity on track for its first close above the 40-day moving average in almost two weeks. Year-over-year, DELL sports a 48.3% lead.
