The idea presented is the opinion of the Options Action staff and not a recommendation by OptionsPlay.
On Friday’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of Verizon (VZ). Verizon has underperformed the DOW over the past couple of years but has outperformed substantially during the recent selloff. Coupled with a recent breakout above $52, sets VZ for a rally higher as markets recover. Expecting VZ to move higher, Michael Khouw suggests buying an April 55 Call for a $3.00 Debit. As of Friday’s close, these call options were trading at a $3.10 Debit.
