6/2 – 3:30 p.m. New York time

I entered one new position, an earnings play on JKS, and exited seven positions:  AAPLAVGOCIENDGEWZKORS and PANW. The EWZ exit wraps up a series, and I calculated results for the series s a whole.

I decided not to exit my one remaining position expiring next week, LULU.  It is within reach of profitability if it continues to fall, so the trend matches my preferred outcome. I intent to exit the position on Monday.

6/2 – 1:30 p.m. New York time

I have exited PANW and CIEN.

6/2 – 12:15 p.m. New York time

Analyses updated with results: AVGODGKORS and AAPL.

6/2 – 10:05 a.m. New York time

KORS exit order has been filled.

6/2 – 9:55 a.m. New York time

JKS continues to qualify as an earnings play, and I shall post an analysis later today.

This is the beginning of clean-up for options positions expiring June 9. I have exited AVGO and DG, hand have placed yet unfilled exit orders on PANW, CIEN and KORS.

I have as yet made no disposition of LULU, which moved into a loss-making condition this morning following Thursday’s earnings announcement.

Among positions expiring June 16, I have exited AAPL and placed an exit order on EWZ, the latter having not yet been filled.

6/1 – 9 p.m. New York time

I shall be looking at JKS as a prospective trade on Friday, timed to coincide with its earnings announcement.
