I like this trade because the stock has rallied the last four times on earnings, and the stock looks great on the chart. The 20-, 50-, 100-day moving averages are all above $90 with the 150-day moving average at $89.63. If it breaks $89.60, which I do not think it will, it could test down to the measured move target of $84.62, the 200-DMA.
