Earnings Decisions

Options Jive

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

With earnings season around the corner, now is a prime time to look at the decisions that go into placing an earnings trade. Tune in to hear Tom and Tony outline the process they go through when placing an earnings trade.

The first question we need to answer is: should we trade this particular stock's earnings? Keeping an eye on our Cherry Picks newsletter can aid in the process, showing historical moves around earnings.

If we do select to trade earnings, we need to decide if we want to trade the monthly or weekly expiration cycle, as both have their own set of pros and cons. If we do decide to go with weekly options, we should determine if we want to place the trade in the morning or as close to the close as possible. From there, we select our strategy.

Using this outline, traders can make their own decisions around earnings that best fit their style. Be sure to watch Tom and Tony discuss the way they like to trade earnings.
