Earnings-Related Options Ideas
Our regular readers know that quick-strike options trading of plays that have just seen their quarterly earnings releases are among our favorite scenarios. The volatility afforded to us by these events is key to the type of opportunities we are commonly after.
This morning, we have NKE which has untraded-upon earnings reported in the post-market yesterday, and Carmax which dropped its report in the premarket today. We’ve got a set of bearish ideas for NKE and bullish ideas for KMX.
We’ll place the following targets on our watchlist today to monitor throughout the remainder of the week:
CarMax, Inc, KMX Weekly $77-79 Calls
Nike, Inc. NKE Weekly $83.50-81.50 Puts
L.B. Foster Co. FSTR
We also have a longer term idea for the FSTR chain. As you can see on the chart snapshot we’ve included below, the stock is presently exhibiting a strong multiple-bottom.
We’re going to place the FSTR 10/19 $22.50 & $25 Calls on watch in the likely event that a recovery does occur.
