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

The past week saw the blue chips showing strength, particularly with the big-cap energy name Chevron CVX) getting the bullish ball rolling on Monday. Also, Wall Street's positive reaction to midterm election results in the U.S. created bigger tailwinds for the stock market.

Even though Thursday's Fed announcement and Friday's inflation data – as well as oil prices falling into bear-market territory -- the Dow, S&P 500 Index (SPX), and Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) had their second straight week of gains.

For the week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) finished up 2.8% at 25,989.30.

The S&P 500 Index (SPX) was up 2.1% at 2,781.01 for the week; and the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) up 0.7% for the week at 7,406.90.

Moving Ahead…..

Looking ahead, Wall Street will be again busy, with several Fed speakers presenting. As well, earnings from Walmart (WMT), Nvidia (NVDA), and a number of cannabis companies are due.

The decline in oil may be another opportunity for consumers and for business, as you will pay less at the pump and industry's paying less as well. The last time that this occurred - mid-1984, according to Refinitiv data – it was proven that cheaper fuel is actually good for 90 percent of the S&P 500 as long as it's caused by excess supply; which is the case now.

CONTROL OF EMOTIONS AND LESS PANIC WILL HELP YOUR PROFIT MARGIN!

Options Trades to Consider Based on Expected Earnings Reports:

Tuesday, November 13

The Home Depot, Inc. (NYSE:HD), the leader in the home-improvement retail space, is expected to report earnings before the market opens. The consensus earnings estimate is for $2.27 per share on revenue of $26.25 billion; but the Whisper number is for $2.31 per share. Consensus estimates are for year-over-year earnings growth of 23.37% with revenue increasing by 4.89%.

The Federal Reserve has now raised rates eight times since December 2015, which has caused investors to be concerned about the housing market, and all housing related sectors such as home improvement. HD was doing OK through the summer, but the stock began turning lower in September, and while it has managed to rally a bit with the overall market after the October sell off the stock remains well below its all-time high set in the first part of September.

Home Depot has a solid earnings track record and has posted better than expected quarterly earnings each of the last eight quarters; and the street is looking for another earnings beat.

Home Depot stock has climbed over 50% in the last three years, with much of that expansion coming in the last 24 months. However, the last year has not been as kind to the home improvement retail powerhouse.

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.....
