BigDeaL: Stocks at Inflection Point as Earnings Season Begins

By Todd Johnson on 12-Oct-2015 13:11 pm (2 years ago)Options Alert
Jason's BigDeaL Trade Alert #43 The stock market's massive two-week bull run is stalling just in time for earnings season to kick off. Although the S&P 500 gained more than 3% last week, it barely eked out a 0.07% gain on Friday, and it's been unable to break out higher today. The following major companies will be reporting their Q3 earnings this week: Intel (ticker: INTC), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), and JP Morgan Chase (JPM) will be reporting on Tuesday; Bank of America (BAC), Netflix (NFLX), and Wells Fargo (WFC) on Wednesday; Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), Phillip Morris International (PM), Schlumberger (SLB), US Bancorp (USB), and UnitedHealth (UNH) on Thursday; and General Electric (GE) and Honeywell (HON) on Friday....

BigDeaL: P&G Should Outperform Amid Uncertainty

By Todd Johnson on 8-Oct-2015 13:10 pm (2 years ago)Options Alert
Jason's BigDeaL Trade Alert #42 Stocks have continued to trend higher since we last met on Monday, which has been good for our HD credit put spread, but not for our other open plays. In Big DeaL #41, I shifted strategy to selling puts, while holding on to our bearish bets on XLE and SPY. The XLE play has gone about as badly as any play ever could, but the ETF could drop by 10% in the week to come just as easily as it surged by that much in the week prior. SPY has been surprisingly bullish, but a pullback before November remains a not-improbable event. We'll continue to hold these plays as hedges while collecting premiums for selling puts, but I have adjusted our price targets on all three of our existing positions – see "Open Plays" below for more details. ...

BigDeaL: Responding to the Market’s Wicked Whipsaws

By Todd Johnson on 5-Oct-2015 13:07 pm (2 years ago)Options Alert
Jason's BigDeaL Trade Alert #41 The market has continued its pattern of wicked whipsaws without rhyme or reason. Actually, the moves seem to be inversely correlated with reason, and that's why they've been so hard to game. Take for instance the market's reaction to the Fed's decision to not hike interest rates on September 17 – after surging in the minutes immediately following the announcement, the market pulled back and continued to sell off for the next several days. The message: "Investors and traders want the Fed the raise rates to end all of the uncertainty!"... (more)
