Free Earnings Trade of the Week – Twitter, Inc. (TWTR) – Reports After the Markets Close 10/27/15

Twitter, Inc. (TWTR) – Earnings Trade – After the markets close 10/27/15

Twitter, Inc. (TWTR) is scheduled to report earnings after the markets close on Tuesday, October 27, 2015.

Last quarter, the stock had the following price movement after reporting earnings:

Jul 29, 2015 32.59 33.24 31.06 31.24 92,475,800 31.24
Jul 28, 2015 34.70 36.67 34.14 36.54 42,042,100 36.54

I am expecting a similar price move this quarter, if not more. With the new CEO for TWTR having the first earnings report, the conference call and comments will most likely move the stock more than the actual numbers. I will be suing a Strangle strategy. 9/10.

Here is how the trade is placed:

2.34 2.38. Try to pay 2.38 or less for this trade. I will post the sell-to-close orders tomorrow pre-market.

Update 1, Pre-market 10/28/15: Pre-market, the stock is down about $3.50/share. I am placing the STC on the puts at 4.20. Since the calls will deteriorate in value a lot, I do not want to sell these too early in case of a reversal. I will post a STC on the calls later, as there is plenty of time-value left on these. I will update this trade as needed.

Update 2: STC on the call side at 1.50.

Update 3: TWTR really moving upward now. Place both STC orders at 3.50 until a direction becomes more clear. I will continually update as needed. A lot of time on this trade, and TWTR is a very volatile stock.

Free Earnings Trade of the Week – Texas Instruments (TXN) – Reports After the Markets Close 10/21/15

Texas Instruments (TXN) – Earnings Trade – After the markets close 10/21/15

Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN) is scheduled to report earnings after the markets close on Wednesday, October 21, 2015.

Over the years, (TXN) has been one of my favorite earnings plays to trade. A very consistent winner, I have almost exclusively used a Neutral Calendar Spread on it, which is a strategy that takes advantage of over-priced options (high Implied Volatility) and time-decay. This strategy works best with stocks that have weekly options, and (TXN) has these available.

Historically, (TXN) is just not a very volatile stock. Every rare so often, even when the stock has moved more than expected, the Neutral Calendar Spreads hold up extremely well.

Last quarter, the stock had the following price movement after reporting earnings:

Jul 23, 2015 49.84 51.26 49.59 50.51 13,271,800 50.17
Jul 22, 2015 48.30 49.64 48.00 49.30 15,381,500 48.97

This trade is priced great, so recommend getting in as soon as possible. 10/10.

TXN NCS 102115

Update #1: Pre-market, (TXN) is up about $4.00 a share. I am placing the closing order at $0.60. If I make any changes to this, I will update it here.

Update #2: The stock is currently staying up, but I am expecting a downturn and profit taking by the end of the day. Have the close order in at $0.55. The trade expires tomorrow at the market close, and time-decay should increase value.

Free Earnings Trade of the Week – JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) – Earnings Trade – After the markets close 10/13/15

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) – Earnings Trade – After the markets close 10/13/15

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) is scheduled to report earnings after the markets close on Tuesday, October 13, 2015.

Last quarter, (JPM) had the following price movement after reporting earnings:

Jul 14, 2015 67.98 69.10 67.76 69.04 20,185,100 68.55
Jul 13, 2015 67.89 68.14 67.68 68.09 16,175,600 67.60

While the price move wasn’t that much, this was unusual. I am expecting around a $2.00 – $3.00 + move, up or down, this quarter. This would set-up perfectly when using a Reverse Iron Condor strategy, which is a strategy that takes advantage of volatility, but where a large price move is not needed to profit, only a moderate one. I am giving this trade a 10/10. A must trade.

Here is how the trade is placed:

Update 3: JPM trending upwards. Place the close order on the call side at 0.60. On the put side, place the close order at 0.15.

General Sell to Close Prices Using the Daily Options Trading Strategy Based on Share Price – (Repost) – Updated – 10/8/15

I am often asked how do I determine my sell-to-close prices when using the Daily Options Trading Strategy (DOTS), so I am posting it again with an update…

There are numerous factors I consider when choosing sell-to-close (STC) price when using the Daily Options Trading Strategy (DOTS). Among them are the following:

  • The share price for each security
  • The stocks volatility, daily highs and lows, and current market conditions
  • Width of Bollinger Bands
  • The time of day the trade is placed
  • The current bid/ask price
  • Leverage

Share Price and Sell-To-Close (STC) Prices Using the Daily Options Trading Strategy (DOTS)

$10.00 – $60.00 = $0.20 STC order above the price paid per contract

$61.00 – $80.00 = $0.30 STC order above the price paid per contract

$81.00 – $100.00 = $0.40 STC order above the price paid per contract

$101.00 – $120.00 + = $0.60 STC order above the price paid per contract

$150.00 – $200.00 + = $0.70 STC order above the price paid per contract

$250.00 – $400.00 = $0.80 STC order above the price paid per contract

$500.00 + = $1.00 minimum STC order above the price paid per contract

Example #1: Buy 100 (TWTR) November 2015 $30.00 call options at 2.00 per contract. The sell-to-close order would be $2.20.

Example #2: Buy 10 (GOOGL) November $665.00 put options at $10.00 per contract. The sell-to-close order would be $11.00

Note: these sell-to close (STC) order prices are not static, but a great guideline to use, especially for trader’s new to the strategy.

The share price is extremely important when choosing a STC price. For example, a stock such as Netflix (NFLX) will have a higher STC than Twitter (TWTR) based on share price. NFLX is currently around $99.00/share, while TWTR is $28.00/share. On average, the minimum STC I would have on NFLX is about $0.40. This means that if I paid $4.00 per contract, my STC would be at $4.40. For TWTR, the average STC would be between $0.20 – $0.30. If the price per contract is at $1.20, the STC would be between $1.40 – $1.50.

A stock like Google (GOOGL), however, would have a much higher STC. Since the current share price is around $630.00/share, the minimum STC would be about 0.70, but usually much higher, $1.00+. This is because of higher price per contract paid, it moves more in dollar increments, and has wider daily price swings.

A stock that has higher volatility also plays a role in choosing a STC that assures the trade will be exited as soon as possible. Some of the stocks on the DOTS list simply move a lot more than the others daily.  This is why I have the 3 Tiers with 27 total stocks. I will always prefer to trade stocks that are higher-priced and have larger daily swings. Tier 1 has that. This not to say that stocks on Tier 2 and Tier 3 are not great for trading, they are, but generally the Tier 1 stocks will take a lot sooner to exit than the Tier and Tier 3 stocks. On the same hand, stocks like TWTR, BABA, FB, BA, and CRM all have inexpensive contracts that allows traders to use that as leverage. For example, if it cost me $10.00 per contract to trade a GOOGL strike price, but only $2.00 to trade FB, then I would multiply the contract size on the FB trade five times that of GOOGL to basically have the same cost basis.

  • GOOGL 10 contracts X $10.00/contract = $10,000.00 cost to place trade. $1.00 STC above price paid/contract = $11,000.00 (minus commission costs).
  • FB 50 contracts X $2.00/contract = $10,000.00 cost to place trade. $0.20 STC above price paid/contract = $11,000.00 (minus commission costs).

The minor downside is that FB will take a bit longer to exit than GOOGL would, but this is not always the case. Just understand that after years of trading my strategy, this is generally true of the lower priced stocks. I actually find TWTR to be more volatile than FB, and those contracts are even lower-priced than FB.

The time the trade is placed is also very important. If it is very early in the day, I will use a higher sell-to-close price than I would if there were only two hours left in the trading day. If early, I can always adjust the STC price and lower it, as there is still plenty of time left. If I place a trade at 2:00 p.m. EST, my STC would be more conservative. This is due to lower volume, possible pinning (happens often late Friday’s). If there is an early GOOGL trade at 9:50 am am EST, I would use a STC starting at $1.50 above price paid per contract. Then, depending on the price movement, would adjust and lower accordingly from there (increases happen, as well).

The Bollinger Bands play a very important role in determining my STC price. This is often gained from experience trading the strategy and repetition. If I see a GOOGL chart, where the bands are extremely wide, and all of the bottom 4 indicators are showing extremely oversold for a call buy, I will not hesitate starting with a much higher STC than I usually would. PCLN has this happen often. The one main issue with a stock like PCLN is the bid/ask prices, which I will get into later. A couple of years ago I had a PCLN call trade that had a $5.00 STC order above price paid per contract that cost $18.00 initially. If I see an APPL chart, and there is a $4.00 + difference from high to low daily when the time to place a trade is available, I would set a STC higher than usual. On TWTR or GPRO, for example, if I see a $2.00 difference from the high to low, this would also be a situation where an increase STC price is appropriate. One thing I look at also is the top Bollinger Band high and the Bottom Bollinger Band low, not necessarily the price action, but the Bands themselves. This is a great indicator of where the stock can move to.

Bid/ask prices are also very important and play an important role in my STC prices. As I mentioned, PCLN could probably be traded at least 3 times per day if only the bid/ask prices were reasonable. Especially the last few months, I am seeing a bid/ask difference on the strike prices that are sometimes $3.00 + apart. This is impossible to trade. Occasionally, I will see PCLN strikes that are about $1.20 apart. I will trade this, but would have initially been a $2.00 + STC price above the price paid per contract, I would automatically know to place the STC at $1.00, maybe slightly more. This is because since these trades are round-trip trades, getting in and out of the trade will cut profits simply due to the wide bid/ask prices. If PCLN should ever have a stock split (hope it’s soon), it would probably take over as the #1 DOTS stock to trade. GMCR, even as a lower-priced DOTS stock, has had this issue with the bid/ask prices being too wide. Currently at $58.50/share, the $56.00 strike price call options are trading at $2.24 – $2.76. This is too wide. If my pre-determined STC price would be at $0.30 above price paid per contract, it would be extremely difficult to exit this trade without needing double the price move of the share price. A more reasonable bid/ask would be $2.25 – $2.35 or $2.20 – $2.40 even.

There are trading opportunities where I will buy a lot more calls or puts than usual. In situations like this, since you are more leveraged, the STC can be lowered. I will do this especially if it is later in the trading day. 100 contracts will require a lot less of a price move to exit the trade than 50 contracts would. If I have 100 contracts on TWTR at $1.20 per contract and my initial STC price was at $0.30, I would have no problem lowering that to $0.20 if I wanted to close the trade out as soon as possible. If a STC on GOOGL was initially set at $1.00, lowering that to $0.70- $0.80 is perfectly fine.

My subscription service on Skype and Chatzy for these DOTS trades does provide all of these real-time STC orders, but I wanted to give everyone a good gauge on how to determine what STC orders are appropriate under each circumstance.

If you have any questions about determining a STC price, you can leave a comment here or e-mail me at kmob79@gmail.com.

Thanks.

Free Earnings Trade of the Week: Yum! Brands (YUM) – Reports Earnings After the Markets Close On 10/6/15

Yum! Brands, Inc. (YUM) is scheduled to report earnings after the markets close on Tuesday, October 6, 2015.

Last quarter, the stock had the following price movement after reporting earnings:

Jul 15, 2015 91.06 91.06 87.51 88.88 9,871,200 88.88
Jul 14, 2015 90.93 92.16 90.57 91.99 5,834,100 91.58

With weekly options available on (YUM), and the stock’s history of making minor price moves after reporting earnings, the strategy I am going to be using here is the Neutral Calendar Spread.

The trade is  currently going for a very good price. I thought it would cost a lot more. The Implied Volatility on the October Week 2 strike is also significantly higher than the monthly (October 2015) strike, always an important factor to consider when using a Neutral Calendar Spread strategy.You may need to get this order filled quickly, as there is a good chance the price gradually moves up. I am giving this trade an 8.5/10.

Here is how the trade is placed:

Entered Trade (Note: this is the amount of contracts I am using personally)

Sell -50 YUM OctWk2 82.5 Call
Buy 50 YUM Oct15 82.5 Call

Net -114.23 -58.27 122.48 1,194.13

NBBO 0.04 0.35. Try to pay 0.21 or less for this trade. At a maximum, pay up to 0.27, no more than that. Note: The bid/ask price is fluctuating all over the place early here, so get your order in quick, may get a better price on it. I will post the price to close the trade out tomorrow pre-market.

See the attachment for the profit/loss chart.

 

YUM NCS 10615

Update 1:  The stock initially had little movement after-hours yesterday, then the news about their China sales disappointed. The stock is currently down about $13.00/share. The Neutral Calendar Spread strategy hold up very well even when the price move is more than anticipated. The stock may also rebound from these lows. For now, place the closing order at 0.30. I will update any changes to this here.

Update 2: Close order now at 0.20
