Earnings week May 12th – 16th - Page 2

post #21 of 29
Recently, I've done pretty well waiting for after earnings. When you get a fizzler that doesn't move, it crushes the options on both sides and you can pick up a great strangle for cheeeeeeap. (Or pick a side if you're confident of the direction.) You get a lot fewer plays that way, true, but they seem to work out pretty good and you avoid over paying for the premiums. Once the premium crush gets them, they don't have to move very much to make big %'s.

If a 5-10% move won't produce a multi-bagger this close to options expiration, it ain't worth the play. Definitely better to wait until after. A lot of these options need 5% just to break even, which is pretty insane. So it is often more profitable to wait until after.

I decided to play 6 May 35 puts on HPQ at .25 .. Its only $150. I figure with the way most techs are getting whacked after earnings its a descent gamble.
Feel free to criticize this
