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.

The Caterpillar Option Trade of The Week. (For The Week Ending April 19th,2024)

It happened on Friday. But first this news.
Now here is Caterpillars one day trading chart for Friday April 19th.
So the stock was up in the first hour of trading. It' a friday and anything could happen. Are buyers getting in to be part of the good news earning report? Does that set off alarm bells? A red light or a green light? Is it time for some counterintuitive thinking? Now look at this.
A look at how the 357.50 Puts closed on the day. There are other series I could show however these particular ones best illustrate the point I want to make. Can you see the low of the day on these Puts? Can you see where it says $70.00 a contract? As the stock marched up smartly on the opening this series of Puts was under pressure. If Caterpillar kept going up these options would expire worthless. The exact time period I am talking about was somewhere around 10:15 a.m.. Fast forward the time period to around 12:50 p.m. Look at how the Puts jumped up to $5.00! That was the trade of the week on Caterpillar options. Too complicated a trade you might say? Look again. It was actually pretty simple.
