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

It was very busy for the stock market last week with plenty of market-moving headlines. Earnings season was a determining factor for the market movement, but there were plenty of other factors that helped…..

  • President Trump commented about Amazon,
  • Blue-chip earnings were a boost,
  • Trade developments between Europe and the U.S.,
  • FaceBook’s earnings report caused lot of tension,
  • Twitter, Intel and Exxon fell after earnings,
  • Tesla stock had a volatile week, and
  • The biggest gross domestic product (GDP) reading in four years on Friday was a positive aspect.

For the week, the Dow rose 1.6% and the S&P 500 added 0.6% for their fourth straight weekly gains, but the Nasdaq fell 1.1% as big names like Twitter, Intel and Facebook dragged on the index.

Reviewing the Earnings Predictions from Last Week….. 

Since we started the “Earnings Predictions Membership”, last week was the second time an overall loss for the week occurred. This is a week where exiting before the earnings report would have been beneficial. This is not to say that some pick-up is still likely in the other trades that have faltered as there is still time until expiry; as well, the market is quite volatile.

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

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.....

Before You Trade Consider This Strategy……

"Trading Capital Management" is a key component of your trading strategy. The strategy, on which we base our trades to achieve maximum profit, and to minimize loss, is contingent on using an equal amount of money for each trade.

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

Options Trades to Consider Based on Expected Earnings Reports:

Tuesday, July 31

Retail software company Shopify Inc. (US) (NYSE:SHOP) will report earnings before the market opens. Current consensus estimates are calling for Shopify to report quarterly net sales of $234.7 million, which would represent year-over-year growth of 55%. However, earnings estimates are calling for a loss of two cents per share, down from a loss of a penny a year ago.

Shopify is a trendy young growth company which offers e-commerce platforms tailored to small businesses and virtual pop-up shops, which is in stark contrast to Apple's long-time tech sector domination……
