Speaking on Options Action, Mike Khouw suggested that traders should consider taking a long position in Ford Motor (NYSE: F), using options. He thinks that lower gas prices should help the sales of F-150, but even if the gasoline prices go up the company has other great cars.

Khouw wants to buy the January 17 call options for $1, which means that the breakeven for this trade is $18. He said that it is a good idea to buy longer dated options because the options are cheap right now due to lower volatility. Ford closed Friday at $17.41, and it has to move 3.4 percent higher for this trade to break even.
