Cons. Staples ETF (XLP) – Danger Brewing in Staples – April 29th, 2019

Bearish – XLP $56.98 – Consumer Staples

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 the consumer staples sector. Staples is currently trading near its 52week high and forming a double top. Coupled with lofty valuations and negative earnings reactions, there is a high risk of a pullback. Expecting XLP to trade lower, Michael Khouw suggests buying a June 56 Put a $0.75 Debit. As of Friday’s close, these puts were trading at a $0.62 Debit.
