Bullish – JNJ – $142.37
Markets ended the week on a strong note, testing its major $317 resistance level at the close. Our base case for next week is for banks to beat earnings and propel the S&P 500 (SPY) above this major level to test $323 next and potentially $339 extended upside targets over the next couple of months.
SBUX Trade Idea:
On CNBC’s OptionsAction show on Friday, Tony Zhang looked at JNJ and the opportunity its recent weakness provides. With its relative underperformance, JNJ is currently trading at a very reasonable valuation of 17x earnings. With strong estimate revisions and relative strength this past week, JNJ scans well for an earnings beat next week. Expecting JNJ to rise higher, Tony is using a July 31 $143/$150 Call Vertical @ $2.25 Debit. As of Friday’s close, these calls were trading for $2.45 Debit.
