IK-> The technicals for UTX ($133.03 up $1.78) are bullish with a neutral trend. The stock has support about $129.90. Look at the April 115/120 bull-put spread for a 22-cent credit. That's a 4.6% return and the stock has to fall by 9.8% to cause a problem. [InvestorsKeyhole, various news and data services]
