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 Walmart (WMT). WMT has been outperforming the market and Consumer Staples sector over the past month of market selloffs. Coupled with a positive earnings announcement last quarter and a cup and handle formation, suggests another possible breakout on earnings this week. Expecting WMT to move higher during earnings, Michael Khouw suggests buying a Jan 105 Call for a $3.80 Debit. As of Friday’s close, this call was trading at a $4.20 Debit.
