    Kinda disappointing action

    It could be a "guilty by association" penalty on them because of their inclusion in industrial ETF's like the XLI. The likes of GE, CAT, BA, and UTX are suppressing the performance of those ETF's which thus brings downward pressure on HON. They can escape this, of course, with heavy buying of HON stock by institutions. This is currently unlikely due to the stretched technical indicators showing the stock to be overbought.

    Several factors running here. Brent/WTI spread cutting into US refineries-- will they still run at high utilization rate thus increasing their demand for UOP catalysts and services. Will aerospace keep humming along moving forward allowing for HON to maintain and grow sales in that segment?

    Some variables and questions out there that could be removing some bulls from the stock. Otherwise, buy JAN '16 calls and sit back and watch over the next 18 months.
