Deere On Earnings

Here is a look at Deere towards the end of the afternoon after an earnings report. It got beat up pretty bad. What we are now looking at is a printout of one option series which will be expiring the next day were trading towards the end of the trading session. Would now be a good time to buy into these 395 Calls and try to play tomorrow's upside? Lets look at how these options traded the next day. Can you see they hit a high of $4.65 sometime during the following day? I did two very small trades on the Friday morning bounce back. I just wanted to cover my commissions a make a touch. Remember Deere options are extremely difficult to play and with only hours to go before they expire its not bad to take a profit whenever you see one. .................. My times in were 10:14 to 10:31 a.m. and 10:59 to 11.09 a.m. I missed the elusive high of $4.65 which happened after I got out. Part Two. Going forward. Let's look at Deere's five day chart and look at how the 400 series o

Roku Jumped in Anticipation Of A Good Earnings Report

Only to fall again. Look at this five and thirty day chart.
Yet thats only part of the story. Look at it's year to date chart.
How bad was their earnings report?
Do you think their pain and suffering is all now behind them? The stock is down 38% on the year. All I know is that they still seem to be making a pile of money. On a different note and in a different industry a stock named "First Solar" was stuck in neutral a few months back because interest rates where to seemingly high and companies in that industry were cutting back on the size and number of projects they were working on. Since that time and for whatever reason the stock in on fire.
Both Boeing and Caterpillar also crashed last week on earning report releases. There seemed to be a hint of danger present in both companies releases. It's almost as if there was a domino effect. Next question? Why is Netflix gettng beat up? Look at it's chart.
Is it partly because other companies like Disney are beefing up their efforts to become a bigger player in this space. Yet then again, the more things change the more they remain the same. A few years back all eyes were focussed on Netflix tweeking their business model on advertising policies and on the issue of their subscribers sharing their passcodes. Those issues are now largely history. We must not forget that Roku has 80 million subcribers. There is still plenty of money for all to be earned. The lesson to be learned is that following sideways moving stocks doesn't always pay off. ** See how I struggled with Roku in a blog I posted on April 15th. It's all to easy to get fixated on sideways moving stocks. * Roku closed down $.55 cents on the week and as mentioned previously in my April 15th blog, Cathie Wood the founder of "Ark Investor" now has some skin in the game.
