A Quick Review of Last Week’s Market…..

For the week, the Dow finished flat only rising 0.05% at 25,462 and is still 4.3 percent from its all-time high; and the S&P 500 gained 0.8 percent to 2,840, just 32 points or 1.1 percent from its record set Jan. 26 at 2,872. However, the Nasdaq which recently set a new high, was up nearly 1 percent at 7,812.

If the market continues to hold up, expect the S&P 500 make a run at a new all-time high in the week ahead, barring a nasty escalation in trade threats.

The current bull market has a very good chance of becoming the longest running one in the post-World War II years. The longest run until now was 1990 to 2000.

Reviewing the Earnings Predictions from Last Week…..

We have broken our two week drought of earnings predictions losses with three out of five being winners in the last week.

For several weeks before there were potential returns of  480.5%, 361%, 553%, 629%, 1,064%, 1,736%, and the list goes on…..

Therefore, “Earnings Predictions” members of Stock Option Made Easy, if they followed our recommended trading strategy, would have been in positive territory; even taking into account any losses that may have occurred. The profitable trades are shown below.


“EARNINGS PREDICTIONS for LAST WEEK” – 3 OUT OF 5 WERE WINNERS!

TOTAL potential profit for these 3 trades= P.P: 216%.

Obviously those trades that have not been successful at this stage could make a comeback, similar to Etsy (.....read article.....), or even give back some of the capital used to purchase the options.

When To Exit A Trade Based On Earnings?.....

It is also worth considering, when options trading earnings reports – “Do we exit on already existing profits or leave the companies to report their earnings and hope for bigger profit?” 

As most traders realize, there is a 50/50 chance that the company stock price could go either way after reporting earnings – even if the report is good, the stock price could reverse – and if you hold a call option, means depletion of an already good profit if it exists. A similar situation can be found if you hold a put option, and a report is not that sound (and you expect a profit from this) but the stock price can, at times move upwards due to traders bias or other external conditions......READ MORE.....

An Important Note: That these suggestions for options trade considerations require investors/traders to use their own discretion as to when to enter or exit! As well, it is advisable to do further research and due diligence before executing your trade.

It is sometimes best to exit a trade, if there is already sufficient profit accrued, before an earnings report is presented.

GREED CAN BE THE UNDOING OF A GOOD PROFIT!

Options Trades to Consider Based on Expected Earnings Reports:

Monday, August 06

Brooklyn, NY-based Etsy Inc. (NASDAQ:ETSY), a commerce platform to make, sell, and buy goods online and offline, primarily in the United States, is expected to report earnings after the market closes. For the second quarter, analysts expect its revenue to rise 25% to $127.1 million. However, its adjusted EPS are expected to fall 60% to $0.04.

ETSY went through rocky times as the original CEO left and the company had to do cost-cutting, including layoffs. And the turnaround has worked. Shares are up 112% in 2018. They now trade with a forward P/E of 79 but earnings are expected to rise 42% in 2018.

Prior to the earnings release, 56.0% of the nine analysts covering Etsy stock have recommended “buys” as of July 27. Analysts are bullish; as the company’s strategic efforts have yielded the desired results...........
