“[...] I do have a position on in this stock and yesterday made an all time high $265.64, did pullback and closed almost near the lows of the day on that stock. Given the fact that the nine-day RSI is at the most overbought reading its been in a long time and the fact that more importantly, implied volatility i.e. the price of the options is really the cheapest ever, I am favoring kind of contrarian play here, I think we will have a short term pull back [...],” Biggam said.
