One Week Options. Are They A Good Bet In Times like This?

Look at how these these four stocks traded last week. 1) What a great week for one week Call option players on Boeing even though the stock ended up down .83 cents on the week. 2) Roku. Roku hasn't yet recovered from a not so good quarterly report. Roku lost $1.13 on the week. (Netflix in somewhat the same space was up $35.780.) 3) Disney suprised. I talked about that in a recent blog. 4) Now Caterpillar. It was up $12.83 Now The D.J.I. was down .11% or basically flat. In good times Call options can be your best friend. To be continued.

Earning Season News.Two Powerful Earning Releases On The Same Day

Option traders wait for days like this. Earning reports can cause stocks to spike. Let's look at Boeing and General Dynamics Corp.. First Boeing. Here is it's news.
The company can't build planes fast enough. The stock surged on the opening only to have opportunistic traders take some of the wind out of their sails. There was a lot of details to absorb in a short period of time causing the stock to quiver. Sometimes Boeing can jump 15 dollars on good earning reports. Now look at this one day chart.
The lesson here is to take profits on the opening. Period. Things re not totally smooth sailing with Boeing. Taking profits and buying back in on the morning dip and selling out into the ensuing rally would really require luck. Next General Dynamics Corp.. Guess what? We are living in world of serious wars. Business has to be good for this company.
The details of how they are doing is not that important. Wars are good for General Dynamics and with the markets taking a grubbing as of late, good earning reports can cause a stock to shine. P.S. Stay away this quarter from playing the earning reports on stocks in the automotive industry. There is too much negativity in the air right now.
