Cboe Global Markets Inc (BATS:CBOE) stock hit an all-time high on Oct.18, following news that the company secured commitments from a broad range of participants to begin offering equity options in Europe as soon as November, pending regulatory approvals. 

Though the equity then pulled back slightly amid broader market headwinds, it has been trending since its breakout above $145, which is five times its initial public offering (IPO) price and the site of a trendline connecting higher highs since 2018.

CBOE WT Chart October 252023

The brokerage bunch is skeptical despite the stock’s strong year-to-date and year-over-year returns. In fact, 10 of the 18 analysts in question carry a tepid "hold"  or worse rating. Plus, short interest rose 85% from November to September, with shares adding 25% in this period. This indicates shorts are underwater and could get squeezed out.
It’s also worth noting that implied volatility (IV) on our recommendation stands at 19%. Our recommended December call has a leverage ratio of 11.7, and will double on a 10.5% pop in the underlying shares.

Did you know you could collect 1 dividend check every day the market is open? You could also do it starting with just $605! For me, I'm collecting 70 dividend checks every quarter…which averages around 1.1 dividend checks every business day. There's no trading behind this... no penny stocks or high-risk investments. All you do is buy and hold and you're set. There's no set up required either. If you start buying the dividend stocks I show you today... you could collect 1 dividend per day starting as early as this week. Click here for all the details.
