Why Not To Buy Not Rivian Calls With Two Days to Go?

It's obvious right? If you mess up and the stock opens the wrong way you only have one day for a rebound. Why put yourself in that position? Others might be in the camp of saying why not go for a fifty percent rebound on Thurday's morning opening. The stock sold of on Wednesday on very little volume. A morning pop is possible. The stock has being strong as of late. Here is it's five day chart. Now this, the seventeen series of Calls that expires in two days. They do look cheap after hitting a high of $1.55 on the day. If we look at a 30 day chart we will see that the stock is still in an uptrend. Why not look at the Call options one and two weeks out? Here are the seventeen series of Calls one and two weeks out They would be much safer to play and I will check in on these ones at a later date. So what happened on the Thursday opening? Let's switch gears for a moment and look at how Roku, a much higher priced stock opened and look at how their Call options moved.

Yes Boeing's Earnings Report Was Good and The Stock Jumped Up. With Caterpillar Earnings Report Coming Out on Monday Morning Will It Do The Same?

Let's begin with a five day chart on Boeing which includes todays action showing how the stock reacted to the the release of it's fourth quarter profit report. Note that the stock dropped on the day prior to this release of this of this news.

So today's (January 31ST) ten dollar and sixty cent jump in the stock's price was justified because their earnings were up. To profit on this new release meant you had to get into Call options on the day before this earnings report came out. Are you able to see the element of fear or panic that drove the stock down $5.00 on that day? That was the time to be buying in. But wait. We can't always say that a five dollar a share drop in a stock's price on the day prior to it's earning's report release is going to happen. Yet this time it did. So option players this time were handed a gift if they were bullish on the stock. The short term "near-to-the-money" and in-the-money" Call options doubled in a day on the release of this good news. Now Caterpillar has it's fourth quarter earning's report coming out February 5th before the opening bell. That day is a Monday. Will Caterpillar's stock drop tomorrow on Friday which is the trading day before their earning report comes out? Here is how it traded today, a Thursday.
It's now Friday at the close. No it didn't drop. Look at how Caterpillar jumped upwards again as did it's Call options. This once again is the trading day before it's earnings report comes out on Monday morning.
The stock, once again went crazy up. Remember Boeing dropped five dollars on the day prior to it's earning report. Not Caterpillar. Good news is expected. Where you one of the lucky ones who got in yesterday (Thursday) and bought the Caterpillar Calls which expired today? They more than doubled in one day. So now what? Now we have climbed a wall of euphoria. Let's now stop for a second and ask the question of why would one want to take a gamble on Caterpillar's earning being good. Often times it crashes on good earning reports because the analyst expected more. Let me show you how some of the option pros are playing this. What we are looking at now is a series of Call option a few weeks out (Feb. 26th).
What do you notice? This was Friday's action with the earning release coming out Monday morning. An open interest of only 138 contracts and a daily volume of 1,566 contracts traded. Stop and let that sink in! The pros got in Friday morning and glued themselves to their screens and watched the upward momentum unfold.They mostly all jumped out before the end of the day. Why? The risk of being part of Monday mornings trading action was to rich for their blood. Us, little fish should learn to play the same way.
