Bullish – GE $11.71 – Industrial
The S&P 500 (SPY) has rallied 10% since breaking out above its $302 resistance and has started to consolidate this week. Despite strong momentum and relative strength, we see risks of a pullback with earnings season in full swing next week.
GE Trade Idea:
On CNBC’s OptionsAction show on Friday, Tony Zhang, Chief Strategist of OptionsPlay suggested that General Electric’s earnings next week could be the catalyst it needs to break out to a new high. GE has broken out from its bottoming formation and recent relative strength points to strong earnings. Tony Zhang, expecting GE to beat earnings, suggests buying a March 11/13 Call Vertical @ $0.85 Debit. As of Friday’s close, these puts were trading at $0.86 Debit.
