Earnings Plays Buck the Poor Market Trend

Options Buck the Trend:

It was another dreary day for the markets yesterday, as most stocks took a beating for the entire session. Thankfully it wasn’t too brutal for us, as two of our three daily options ideas posting significant upswings on the day. A bearish play we’ve been tracking since Monday morning’s premarket report also tacked on a solid new high as well.

Our daily targets to blast off in defiance of the overall trends on the heels of their earnings drops were the TJX Weekly $56-58 Calls, and the ZIM Weekly $66-68 Calls. Monday’s idea was the WIX Weekly $70 Puts. Here were the overall moves and total possible profits associated with those targets:
