I have three prospective trades for Wednesday that qualify on grounds of liquidity: FB, MRK and PM. All are potential earnings plays.
I intend to analyze FB.
MRK and PM have overly low implied volatility, both in comparison with the annual range and the most recent broad movement. I shall check them again after the opening bell, but without a significant rise in implied volatility, neither will qualify for a further look.
