Earnings Release Options Strategies Course Offering

March 21, 2018


The OP Earnings Release Option Strategies course gives you a tool box of options strategies that allows you to take advantage of major events.  It is designed to “straddle” the next ER season so that a list of ER plays with their appropriate strategies is developed for future use. 


For example, below are three primary non-directional ER strategies and their ROI results for FB (each can be traded individually).  The same strategies can be applied to other stocks; history will show that they either work well or fail on individual names, e.g., Strategy C on FB.


                           Strategy A         Strategy B         Strategy C


4/27/2016         -79.20%             6.40%                   -0.60%

7/27/2016         238.30%            52.90%                -68.80%

11/1/2016            19.00%            43.30%                   -7.70%

2/1/2017            123.10%            26.60%                 -61.60%

5/3/2017            134.10%              9.60%                -92.90%

7/26/2017           29.40%             22.50%                -18.80%

11/1/2017           164.80%            58.20%                -59.40%

1/31/2018          100.00%            32.00%                -36.20%


The course format will rely on learning the types of strategies, identifying stocks that meet the criteria for those strategies, back testing the past 5 to 7 earnings, and tracking live case studies during the April/May earnings season. 


At the end of the course, you will have 15 to 25 stocks and customized strategies to apply to the next earnings season.  All case studies are for education purposes.


Course fee:                          $1495.00
