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

Capitalizing On Monday Morning Exuberance - Roku

I have spoken about Roku in past blogs( April 29th, March 27th, Feb. 17th). I like playing sideways moving stocks. Here is an entry point I made at 1:52 p.m. last Friday. I purchased two Roku May 24th 58 series of Calls at $129.00 each. The stock was going sideways all week and then dipped a touch on Friday. Would new life come into the stock?
Monday morning saw excess exuberance so I got out of my Roku position without waiting to make more.
Here is what the chart looked like.
I like selling into strenght like this. At 10:05 a.m. I got out at $2.97. Remember I got in at $1.29? Here is it's one day chart.
Not a bad time to sell out with Roku at 10:10 a.m.being the high of the day. I did try to play it down after I sold out however I was off a few cents in my entry point of my Puts purchase and then I didn't want to chase it. At the same time another stock was peaking and attracting my attentions. Carmax. It's not a stock I follow but I just happened to see it spiking. Other companies in the same space where also up. Would it be a short term bubble? Look at it's early morning chart. Here is what I did and how I made out.
I got "in-and-out" of two little Puts in just under an hour. Here is how the stock traded on the day.
There wasn't much there to be made.
In the past most of my experiece with Monday morning exuberance is in Boeing. With the markets as of late being so strong, multiple opportunties now exist.
