On Friday’s CNBC’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of the retail industry. The retail sector has underperformed the overall market by a wide margin over the past 2 years. Macy’s has been one of the worst performing stocks in this sector and recently broke below a major support level at $20.

Expecting a move lower, Michael Khouw suggested buying a Nov 10 18.5/16.5 Put Vertical for a $0.60 Debit.
