Cemex SAB de CV (ADR) ADR (NYSE: CX)

Cemex on the edge supports this options put trade. This options trade was recommended to “Mentorship Program” Members on Wednesday, August 01, 2018, based on Cemex’s overbought position due to investors pricing in too much premium from possible future benefits; which has resulted in a potential profit of 66% for members!



The Trade……

…….from……Mentorship Program” Recommendations - Week Beginning Monday, July 30, 2018.

The Details……..

Cemex SAB de CV (ADR) ADR (NYSE: CX), ), a company that produces and sells cement, ready-mix concrete and other construction materials, reported earnings last week; rising more than 5% in one day; and, on the surface, the news looked pretty good based on the reaction in the stock. The earnings-per-share (EPS) numbers were a bit better than average estimates, but revenue was a little low. Normally, a mixed reaction like this would have led to a drop in the share price. However, promises for future asset sales and additional cost-cutting probably saved the day — temporarily at least.

Following the financial crisis of 2008, CX lost its investment grade status and struggled for several years to refinance and reduce its debt and return to profitability. From that perspective, performance over the last two years has been admirable. However, the stock looks as if it is being overbought by investors who are pricing in too much premium from possible future benefits.

One of CX’s biggest markets is the U.S., and growth rates for U.S. construction are slowing. Just look at homebuilders like PulteGroup, Inc. (NYSE:PHM) or D.R. Horton, Inc. (NYSE:DHI) for examples of the effect that slowing growth is having on demand for construction materials and builders……continue reading…..

The Trade……..

** OPTION TRADE: Buy CX SEPT 21 8.000 PUT at approximately $0.65 TO $0.70.

The Result So Far………

Sometimes it is our approach to predict whether a company will beat or miss estimates, whether the stock will appreciate or depreciate as a result and what strategies investors and traders can use – such as found with the “Earnings Predictions Program”. This type of prediction is based on thorough investigation and fundamentally based research, and the results have been very exceptional.
