Amazon (AMZN) – Bearish Earnings Options Action Trade for Jan 28th, 2019

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 Amazon. AMZN was one of the best-performing stocks in the tech sector but lost over a third of its value during last year’s selloff. Coupled with a retracement back to a major resistance level, and earnings next week, provides a catalyst for a move lower. Expecting AMZN to trade lower on earnings, Michael Khouw suggests buying a Feb 1680/1670 Put Vertical for a $4.80 Debit. As of Friday’s close, these puts were trading at a $5.30 Debit.
