CNBC’s Options Action Trade for July 31st, 2017 – Tesla (TSLA)
On Friday’s CNBC’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of Tesla. With a large divergence in earnings expectations and an implied move of over 7% up or down on earnings, Tesla is likely to see volatility next week. Tesla has recently formed a head and shoulders formation which is bearish, targets $290-300 level to the downside. Additionally, with such stretched valuations and the risk of a poor product launch, there are risks to the downside. Expecting a move lower on earnings, Michael Khouw suggested buying an Aug 335/310 Put 1×2 Spread for a $2.50 Debit.
