Tesla (TSLA) – Bearish Earnings Options Action Trade – 7/30/18

On Friday’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of Tesla stock. Tesla (TSLA) has recently started to underperform after a failed breakout higher earlier in the year. TSLA has broken below a bullish trendline just a few days ago and reports earnings next week. Coupled with the need to borrow more capital and questionable sales and manufacturing guidance provides additional downside risks. Expecting TSLA to move lower on earnings, Michael Khouw suggests selling a Sept 310/340 Call Spread for a $10.40 Credit. As of Friday’s close, this spread is trading at $10.00.
