Earnings Season Has Arrived!


Our long term members know that we like to use few non-directional strategies to play earnings. There are few things we like about those strategies:

  • They are predictable.
  • They are repeatable.
  • They are flexible.
  • They can be used on the same stocks cycle after cycle.

The following article described few stocks that we use over and over again, cycle after cycle. We said "$TSLA, $LNKD, $NFLX, $GOOG: Thank You, See You Next Cycle".

 

Well, the Next Cycle is already here.

 

NFLX is one of those stocks. Here are our results from NFLX in the recent cycles:

 

+10%, +20%, +30%, +16%, +30%, +32%, +18%

 

Another earnings cycle has arrived, and NFLX delivered another nice winner for us. We opened a pre-earnings calendar at average price of $3.50 and exited at average price of $4.55, booking a 30% gain in the process. That marks eighth consecutive NFLX winner in the last few cycles.

 

But some of our members did even better. Here is a screenshot from the forum:

This member booked 47% gain! Here is another one:

And one more:

Those are real fills from real members. Not hypothetical returns. REAL RETURNS FROM REAL TRADERS.

 

Those returns are even more remarkable when you consider the fact that the stock moved 15%+ in the last few days. We played it non-directionally, so we didn't really care which direction it will move, but booking 30-50% gains on a non-directional strategy after such a move is truly amazing.

 

Earnings season is just starting. We are planning to play GOOG, FFIV, CMG, FB, AMZN, MSFT, BABA, LNKD, TSLA and more. Each stock has its own "character", the best time to enter and its unique setup.

 

We already booked 57.6% ROI since the beginning of 2015. We can help you. If you want to learn those profitable options strategies:

  • Fear of Options Assignment

    One of the most common fears in option trading is one of early assignment.  The fear of having a large number of shares (or a large short position) coupled with a potential margin call (or Reg-T call) causing a sudden shortage of cash in their accounts worries investors.  Investors commonly view assignment as a huge potential risk.

  • The Value of Equity Asset Class Diversification

    This investing lesson is a tale of two time periods that highlight the important role of equity asset class diversification and systematic rebalancing in an equity fund portfolio.  Human nature is a failed investor, when our natural instinct is often to do the exact opposite of what we should do in practice.

  • Exercise Risk of Uncovered Calls

    Exactly how risky are uncovered calls? That depends … Some traders avoid uncovered calls altogether because the risk can be significant, even unlimited (in theory). Others can rationalize this strategy as only moderately risky based on how you pick expiration and strike.

  • Cash is (no longer) Trash

    According to www.bankrate.com, the current national average interest rate on bank savings accounts is only 0.10%. Many banks have barely budgeted on increasing interest rates even as the risk-free rate of return on a US Treasury Bill is currently in excess of 2%. This spread is a substantial profit margin for banks.

  • The Danger of False Signals

    Everyone has heard about the troubling “false signals,” a price-based reversal indicator that shows up but does not lead to reversal. This is frustrating and expensive, but the problems in how traders react to false signals can be managed effectively with a few techniques.

  • How Earnings Impact Options Prices

    Yesterday I closed our SE May 22.5 buy-write for a couple of reasons. First off, I knew that the position only had ~$0.20 more to gain over the next three weeks. I also knew those gains would take some time to capture as out-of-the-money puts (which is essentially what the May 22.5 buy-write is) hold their value until right before expiration.

  • Options in the Media

    In general, financial reporting is a scam.  The daily highlights of “President Trump had eggs for breakfast causing futures traders to worry as markets decline slightly” or “Markets up on Mickey Mouse’s birthday,” always amaze me at the abject lack of correlation.

  • Where to Find Exceptional Trading Data?

    Options traders are “data wonks,” meaning we all rely on information to make what we hope are informed decisions. But how do you know the difference between valuable and reliable data on the one hand, and rumor or speculation on the other?
