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:

  • Selling Short Strangles and Straddles - Does it Work?

    I have seen a lot of discussions on Twitter lately about the issue if selling naked strangles or straddles is a great strategy or a recipe for disaster. If you have read my books or if you are following my sample portfolio, you know that I'm a huge fan of selling short strangles and straddles.

  • Debunking the "Trading Options for Income" Myth

    "Real trading system returns are too irregular in the short term for consistent weekly returns every time and the only 'trader' that every had regular monthly returns was Bernie Madoff" - Steve Burns. So true. This is why "trading options for income" promoted by some options "gurus" is so misleading.

  • Understanding Growth Vs. Value Stocks

    We recently received a question from one of our members: "Is value allocation a contrarian strategy that identifies stocks that are considered "cheap" relative to historical prices?  How is value measured, and how would this strategy mitigate a pool of stocks like Blackberry in 2010 that was trading at metrics less than historical trailing averages?"

  • Selling Naked Strangles: The Math

    Selling short (naked) strangles is heavily promoted by some options "gurus". Is it a good strategy? It might have an unlimited (theoretical) risk, but what about the return? Is the return worth the risk? We decided to do some math, based on real prices, not some theoretical "studies".

  • Don’t Buy Thanksgiving Turkeys as Investments

    Nassim Taleb tells a great story about Thanksgiving turkey’s in his 2007 book, The Black Swan. "Consider a turkey that is fed every day…Every single feeding will firm up the bird's belief that it is the general rule of life to be fed every day by friendly members of the human race 'looking out for its best interests,' as a politician would say.

  • Obey Reality and Win by Not Losing

    “I’ll do anything to lose weight (except diet and exercise),” is the same kind of magical thinking by investors who will do anything to outperform the market except study and practice discipline. It takes novice investors about a year to realize that you can’t consistently beat or time the market buying individual stocks or funds.

  • Follow Your Plan: Don’t Engage in Reckless Trading

    Setting up some internal rules for your trading looks like a must first-step before setting up your account and getting into your platform. You need to get your own trading plan and then stick to it. Self-discipline and avoiding recklessness can be huge for your balance.
