SBN Options Idea for August 2021
The major indices are all trading lower at midday, erasing yesterday's afternoon rally, with small-caps leading the way lower yet again. The Russell 2000 hit its lowest level in nearly a month this morning, with the Dow and the S&P 500 pulling back from their all-time highs as well. Dow members Home Depot (HD) and Walmart (WMT) both reported bullish earnings in pre-market trading, but HD’s same-store sales missed expectations for the first time in nearly two years, putting pressure on the whole consumer discretionary sector.
Suggested Option Trade:
Sell Puts on Yum! Brands, Inc. Write(Sell) $130 Puts on YUM expiring October 15' 21 at $2.85 Credit
Trade: Sell ("sell to open") the October 15 2021 $130 put.
Allocation: Size the position according to your portfolio size and how much you're comfortable investing.
Price Guidance: Aim to receive a net credit of $2.85 or so.
Current Stock Price: $134.10
If YUM trades over $130 at expiration, we will keep the entire credit at a 100% profit. If it trades below $130 at expiration, we happily own the shares at a net price of $127.15 ($130 - $2.85).
