Mike Khouw Sees Unusual Options Activity In C.H. Robinson


On CNBC's "Options Action," Mike Khouw spoke about unusually high bullish options activity in C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc (NASDAQ: CHRW).

Khouw said UBS upgraded the logistics company on Wednesday. Although the analyst expects freight shipments to decline, he upgraded the stock because the price of trucking could drop enough to help C.H. Robinson increase its margins a bit.
