On Friday’s CNBC’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of large cap tech stocks and Tesla. Tesla (TSLA) broke out above its major $280 resistance level in early April and has continued on a steep climb higher since. TSLA is one of the highest performing stocks in the market at 73% YTD, providing a good profit taking opportunity. Additionally, it has yet to check back to its bullish trendline since breaking out, suggesting a possible pullback. Expecting a consolidation or a possible pullback, Michael Khouw suggested selling a July 375/395 Call Spread for an $8.00 Credit.
