I’ve been testing a directional bet strategy. Strategy: directional butterfly opened day before earnings on weekly series, idea to take low cost high risk/reward bets that take advantage of expensive far otm options to profit large swings in price. Ideal environment is high volatility and high speculation on earnings. What’s cool is you can usually cut loses around -50% or less when wrong and typical profit has been 125-200%, you can be wrong more than you’re right directionally and still win overall. Position is short Vega which hedges your delta/gamma position since no matter what after earnings you gain off IV crush. Typically if the stock doesn’t move much you can still close around opening cost even when it’s entirely otm. Criteria: - VIX is elevated - high liquidity across option chain, high volume and OI - min 350%-400% return on max risk - high IV rank - nearest long leg within implied move - short leg at or outside implied move - ideally penny increment priced (wide bid/ask kills this) - close within an hour after earnings, win or lose, target +125-200% return on risk for wins and cut loses as quick as possible - target 1-2 dte min after ER Qualitative criteria to help pick direction - several past earnings beats/misses bet that direction, look at competitor earnings beat/miss (a peer beat/miss typically drops IV so you can close at small profit if you change your opinion on the direction) - large/mega cap stocks seem to work best - look at put/call skew vs historic and peer group, bet with the skew if it intuitively makes sense - identify catalysts that would magnify ups/downs relative to historical (macro stuff cpi/industry outlook/world events etc.) reasons high IV might still be underpriced - inverse zacks/Barrons/etc. free articles with clear bias near ER - bet sizing should be small, correlated to relatively low confidence in direction pick General idea is to find quick and simple reasons to pick a direction when the return/volatility hurdles present themselves. Example win: WMT 145/150/155 call butterfly opened at $70 debit. Trading around 142 when opened. Closed at $200 credit at open. Direction correct movement within implied move. Example Neutral Loss: NVDA 155/145/135 put butterfly opened at $150 debit. Trading around $161 when opened. After ER direction was right but not magnitude, closed at $147 credit. Short Vegas saved the position since the sold otm contracts lose most of the extrinsic value and near the money long leg retains more value Example total loss: RIVN put butterfly opened at $65 credit and after ER the stock blasted in the opposite direction. Attempted to close but no fill Still dialing in my criteria but it’s been working well in this market.

Yes, it does work. You can do an IV strangle (puts and calls) prior to earnings so you can make money on the IV runup, which is an alright strategy but doesn't always work. I'm testing it with CRWD right now actually but my last successful trade iwht it was WMT a few weeks ago, at one point I was up 30% on calls and 80% on puts at the same time, bought both a minute apart. The OTHER strategy, and its all you should do, is the IV flush. when everyone buys calls and puts thinking they are going to catch that move at juiced IV, and then the stock doesn't hit its implied move, those premiums tank. depending on the company, if they beat on earnings with decent guidance and stay below their implied move (or flat, in the case of Apple which happens often) you can then basically wait for the BIG volume right off open within the first 1-5 minutes. follow the volume and buy calls (or puts if the above is reversed) and bank.

You’re not wrong - it’s normal for companies to be unprofitable when they start out. But once they become profitable, that is far far from the end of their stock price going up. Again, I’d refer you to major holdings of Berkshire like AAPL, KO, WMT, COST or other heavy hitters like AZO and PGR. If you put your Roth IRA in AZO over literally any timeframe, you’d be absolute crushing it, but at much less risk than SOFI. Think about it - would you rather give your money to a kid whose lemonade stand has a line around the block or one who just started up who claims to have a new incredible recipe? Sure, the second kid might be right, but the first kid has a proven record that money invested into his/her lemonade stand turns into more money. Want to make a small bet on the second kid (SOFI)? Go for it. If you’re right, the reward is great. But the risk is significantly higher.

There is definitely decent good pot odds. WMT is on my scanner, granted there is a lot of overbought, short-term equities.

Mentions:#WMT

PMCC, when used for longterm, is and can be exactly the same as a CC/CSP but with lower capital. For example, WMT priced at 153.04 mark, you could do a 155CC 5DTE for 0.61 and as long as stock doesn’t move, is 0.39% roi with a max draw of 1.67% (if stock goes at or above 155). A 155CSP returns 2.47 with an extrinsic of only 0.51, so apples for apples, the CC is better on the strike line, at 0.33% and max 1.61%. But the normal thing to do is to CSP below the price, so the 152.5CC returns 1.11, giving you 0.73% with the downside that you don’t have a max, but rather 0.35% protection before loss of profit starts. Now let’s go with PMCC. We tailor it in such a way to cancel as much of the extrinsic on the long position as possible. The 20Jan95C long with the 155C short has a mid cost of 57.54. If stock doesn’t move for the week, you will return approximately 58.13, which is 1.02% and a max (for the week) of 4.27%. Yes, the PMCC will eventually expire, or price can drop, but the trick is, you can put on a new one on or roll the long down and it is near identical to have purchased the stock in the very beginning (because of how the bell curve on extrinsic works). The only negative is that you have to roll out the long to continue (aka carry cost), but that isn’t a terrible thing because most of the time you can make that money in the next short roll to pay for it. The absolute worst case, you kept placing new longs or rolling down and stock goes to zero….you’ve lost a little bit less money than you would have if you purchased the stock in the beginning. So if you’re gonna tell people to use one method over another because of better return on risk, PMCC is the best option (pun intended), but requires knowledge in math.

1. NVDA, down over 50% from its high and still has an insane premium on the stock. 2. COST, a retail giant that has also has an insane premium on the stock. 3. Same with WMT too. Their net income is the same as it was back in 2018 and has gone nowhere over a decade. Their last earnings was pretty trash too yet their stock ran for some reason. I don’t understand the premium for this company other then it provides stability. Once we see the economy get better and those fears go away I can easily see this stock falling. 4. Consumer staples like PEP, KO, JNJ, PG, etc. these stocks have been trading in the high 20s P/E range cause with fears of a recession people are plowing money into safety. I own PEP and JNJ and haven’t put money in them in awhile cause of their lofty valuation. I can’t wait for the day for these stocks to take a hit and add to my position. As of right now they do nothing but run and stock price and trade at a premium so right now I am continuing to hold and avoid.

Um…yeah dude. That’s not explicitly what I’m saying, but that’s also not wrong. Just look at anything Berkshire Hathaway owns (AAPL, KO, COST, WMT, etc) or one of my personal favorites, AZO. Buying low on one of these kinds of stocks is a great idea because they’re trending up all the time due to consistent profits and proven business models. Everyone wants to buy the all time low on some “future” stock so they can start a moon colony, but every neglects to remember that big/smart money controls the price of stocks, and if the price is in the toilet, perhaps it’s there for a reason.

Let’s hope so… My WMT puts are bleeding slowly.

I’m looking at HIBB off of some of the retail plays recently, and KR for sure. Groceries are doing well right now it seems (WMT went up, TGT went down because no groceries). Groceries react to inflation/price change daily. Inventory is fine. People still need to eat.

I have 3 of those stocks (BRK.B, F, XOM) so I support those choices. WMT and HPGLY could suffer going into a consumer-spending downturn. HPGLY is especially vulnerable now that shipping backlogs have eased and merchandise sales are way down from pandemic levels. I don't know much about BLK, but the PE is 20 so the stock does not look like a bargain. Overall, I like the diversification of your portfolio.

I like the following: TXRH- Their menu isn't much more than cooking the food yourself. ORLY and AZO- eye watering prices but more tailwinds than just about anything else: electric cars, constrained new car supply, people still gotta get to work, more people wrench themselves. Even if the recession is shallow and quick, I still REALLY like these stocks. The key isn't slowing spending but where to invest strategically on what you think will persist. TGT, WMT, BJ, COST, DG, DLTR, are all too obvious and high, but FDO for example may not be, as such, an ETF may not be weighted properly for what you want to play.

Absolutely… but not big gains. Shavings make a pile. 2 weeks ago with WMT at like 140ish I wrote a strangle. Selling a PUT at 132 and selling a CALL at 152. Total premium was $2.05 per share or $205 per contract and it closed yesterday. I have 300 shares so I got $615 in premium and was called all 300 shares yesterday at $150 per share. I bought all 300 shares back instantly at 152.43. So I got $615 on 42k worth of wmt for a 1.46% premium for 10 days + got $9 per share appreciation. All this in an IRA no tax on buys sells or premium. If I can do that 1-2x per month that’s like a 20-30% dividend on WMT plus the stock dividend and appreciation/losses. Love options. Love them.

There were quite a few major earnings moves from retail stocks this quarter. I took some time to look through them and these are my plays for this week: Long DLTR Long FIVE Revenue side: Discretionary spending for the lowest income showed an improvement from first half of 2022, probably due to easing commodities inflation. There was also higher demand from higher end consumers trading down. TGT and disc section of WMT and AMZN missed as a result. Discount apparel retailers ROST posted a massive beat and TJX just hit an ATH. The bar to a beat is also lowered when FIVE and DLTR cut revenue guidance in August while inflationary pressures were higher. Cost side: This is the big one. Logistics is a huge cost driver for discount stores, and shipping and trucking have been absolutely tanking this quarter. I played DLTR last year on the short side when shipping costs were at their peak and made like 300% on puts. Not sure how much costs can actually be reduced this quarter because of fixed contracts but I expect decent enough guidance. Risks: 1. Labour costs are up and may offset the drop in shipping. 2. DLTR is already at ATH and may have already priced in good earnings. But of course it can also pull a TJX.

>You're absolutely right, it is in the same class as TJX and WMT. However, I believe that it is at an all-time high for sympathy reasons. Definitely would be calls not puts.

That is true. WMT does weather through recessions well. The Walton family is likely the largest beneficiaries of tax payer funded welfare programs. People MUST eat, they MUST buy basic necessities, and they'll just mark up the price of food and other necessities to maintain profit margins, and the government, through the hands of everyone descending into poverty, will send money to the top. Hell, it's an even faster funnel these days. You'll be lucky to find a handful of employees in those ever increasingly automated stores. You know some even have robots roaming the aisles now. Maybe one person watching over 16 self checkout, self bagging stations. In the next decade I wouldn't be surprised if they achieve 100% automation and employ no one in the communities.

Idk the exact science/technicals about IV but I’ve been trading options long enough to understand. First thing is that you should have an idea of what the stock’s IV typically is. It honestly varies from stock to stock and how volatile it usually is. For example, something stable like WMT only has ~20%. Something a bit more volatile like META has ~40%. GME/AMC is always like ~80-100%+ cause they’re memes. I watch ZM and IV is typically like ~60-70%, meaning it only doubled, which is pretty tame considering sometimes the weeklies’ IV can 5x+ when it gets in the 200%-range. I’m guessing TGT strangle paid off cause it moved A LOT in both directions last week (tanked 15% after earnings and then rallied ~9% all within a few days). NVDA strangle didn’t pay off cause it essentially traded flat and it didn’t move nearly as much as TGT

He’s the useless CEO and Founder of GME. The fact that you didn’t know that shows how dumb you are. Maybe stop at WMT and pick up some neurons so your brain starts working.

Yes I do think the biggest companies will stay big. ​ The barrier to tech (HW) is a lot higher now than before, no longer is it just tinkering in your garage. You need large design teams just to get a prototype up, exception being software. With SDKs, AI, AWS, software companies can still scale up quickly and efficiently. ​ The VC environment is terrible right now, a friend just got layoff from a startup along with 50% of his coworkers. I've been getting recruiters pinging me non-stop the last 5 years and I always ignore em, they can't match the stability, health and side benefits of a big company (company dependent). In the USA, a lot of benefits are tied to your employer and harder for small companies to compete. ​ Its very hard to break existing B2B relationships. There's the saying no one ever got fired for choosing IBM. I've seen it first hand where our product sucks but we still get the design win cause our CEO is friends with the AT&T CEO, etc. TOP 10 in 2000: GM, WMT, XOM, F, GE, IBM, C, AT&T, Altria, Boeing The big change up compared to today would be the tech stuff like Facebook, Google, Amazon, Tesla, Nvidia. In 1990 it was also IBM and car and oil companies in top 10.

Made the mistake of yolo’ing my entire account on every play and attempting to make multiple trades daily. Got blown up. I’ve since made it all back and then some but in a much more controlled manner. I only ever trade with 10% or less of my account value. I buy 2 contracts at a time. If my position gains value I ride it patiently. If I get to 100% I immediately sell half to get my initial back. If the position loses value and I still feel good about it I’ll average in. But never exceeding 10%. If I’m playing monthly contracts this process can take a few days. If weekly contracts few hours. I don’t use stop losses and usually just let a bad bet die worthless but I trade less than most and only trade on higher probability bets. In most other cases a stop loss would be better. I only trade on something I’ve planned out. Sometimes I’ll go a few days without making a single trade while waiting for my setup. I don’t read charts or do T/A. For instance this week I watched Walmart leading into earnings expecting them to beat to give a slight boost to TGT cause I wanted earnings puts with a good entry. If WMT didn’t go green after earnings and TGT dropped I would have moved on to the next trade. I try to only trade when I feel I’m given my ideal setup. I work in automotive industry and after speaking to my local rep regarding prices, demand, and margins I decided to play AAP earnings puts. Obviously that worked out well. But I still only played it with 10% of my portfolio and that position went up almost 100% right before close so I sold half to get my initial back even though I was convinced it would go down after the report. I doubled my portfolio this week but I still only played with less than 5% today because I didn’t really have anything solid besides NVDA puts at open which was just a hunch. It might even be a few days to a week or more before I open a trade with more than a few % of my portfolio again. I don’t have the account size anywhere near the yolo’s that get posted here. But I still enjoy getting in on the action. I’ve just learned if I want to continue to play with house $$ instead of my own. I need to be cautious and not over do it. Never get greedy. Cause this bastard will take it right back as easily as it gives it. Lol. I often make a modest withdrawal after a decent week also. It’s harder to trade with it once it’s in my bank account.

4-5% on WMT next week would be nice.![img](emote|t5_2th52|4270)

You don't need a nice car, some companies have gotten a PR hit for kicking homeless people out of the parking lot so now they won't do it. WMT for example will never kick you out

My oops was sleeping on Ross this week. Clearly would have been a great call play for the same reasons that WMT went up

dividends are (typically) paid to shareholders directly out of cash reserves. So if a company pays $500m in dividends to shareholders, that's $500m that would otherwise be a part of the intrinsic value of the company. Dividends also are typically taxed as ordinary income, whereas any gains on shares held more than a year are taxed as long-term capital gains at a lower rate, so that's something to consider. I don't like recommending stocks, but here are some dividend-paying companies you've heard of that might be a good way to get your feet wet: $XOM $KO $MMM $CAT $CLX $IBM $JNJ $MCD $TGT $WMT Remember, just because a company has a high dividend yield doesn't mean it's a good investment. Stock price declines can outpace dividend payouts so you need to make sure the business is solid.

I just saw a gender neutral looking person get into a fight at WMT and got pants'd. My eyes are traumatized.

healthcare, alcohol and tobacco, and retailers (WMT, COST, AMZN) are recession proof

I don't know if the Fed continuously raising rates is gonna answer our inflation question. I think the issue is labour demand... there's simply not enough people. Increase legal immigration. Offer a fast track to a green card for foreign uni students who graduate. All this "raising" is doing is punishing the poors. You saw this reflected in WMT earnings as well as Macys. Poor people aren't buying. The rich certainly haven't stopped.

Is all this Red because of Target? Why? It's like FedEx... run like shit. Look at WMT, HD, LOW... even Macy's this morning. I think extrapolating from TGT to the entire market isn't entirely correct. .. but they're gonna fucking do it anyways.

tgt's horrible financial report just murdered the consumer market, except for WMT ofc. And so many comments about TGT calls probably showed that most believed TGT would follow WMT.

Mentions:#WMT#TGT

>I think target is a better long-term buy. Agreed. WMT has a P/E of 46(!!!) But growth has been essentially stagnant for years. With its recent trim TGT is sitting at a P/E less than 18. TGT has a better dividends too on top of that. People pile into WMT as a safe "value" stock, but that P/E is high for a solid growth company, let alone a relatively stagnant retail giant.

Mentions:#WMT#TGT

I believe it's about 10-20% more. Off the cuff anecdotal evidence from me of course. I think TGT is seen as a better more upscale WMT. Even Biden said inflation only means people will buy generic raisin bran and not actual raisin bran. 1. Fuck that pos for being so flippant about inflation 2. He's right and fits in perfectly with the TGT / WMT comparison. My 2 cents.

Mentions:#TGT#WMT

This was an anomaly to me. There isn’t a huge difference in prices between TGT and WMT, is there? TGT possibly lost because of their own mismanagement during these unusual times. Retails sales came in stronger today too.

Mentions:#TGT#WMT

The fact TGT got obliterated while WMT was up says people are definitely feeling the crunch. I think we are not the majority of people so we don't see it but that was a HUGE tell for me. Q1 and prob q2 earnings are gonna suuuuck

COST and WMT might as well be savings accounts with stagflation

Seems too risky if I had to pick *one* company. I'd rather do COST or WMT in that case? So far TGT has mismanaged its inventories and performed poorly compared to its competitors.

People be quoting TGT drop, but everyone thought their earnings would just be a mirror of WMT

Mentions:#TGT#WMT

Two ways this roles out. The way of WMT or the way of TGT. Could be better then expected as effectively richer customers pair down spending like WMT saw. Could be a blood bath like TGT as they pretty much say people have stopped buying our shit. I don't think it's as clear cut as lol Fukt. But I personally do lean on the way of TGT. If richer clients town down and go to Kohl's, poorer customers might just not buy new clothes. It's not like food which WMT saw. If you poor and food keeps more expensive unfortunately you don't get to not spend money to eat.
