6/22 – 3:45 p.m. New York time

And the outcomes for the day. I entered three new positions, earnings plays on BBBY and BBRY and a non-directional trade on FB unrelated to earnings. I exited three positions, AAPL, CCL and HAIN, each for a profit. I declined to trade FINL and SONC due to the absence of weekly options.

6/22 – 12:40 p.m. New York time

I have exited AAPL for a profit and shall update shortly with results.

6/22 – 9:45 a.m. New York time

Last night’s prospects list is holding up this morning in its entirely. I plan to analyze BBBY, BBRY, FINL and SONC, the four earnings plays. I shall keep three non-directional plays in reserve, in case my portfolio has room for them: XOP, FB and KRE.

I have exited two positions, each for a profit. They are CCL and HAIN. I shall update their analyses with results shortly.

6/21 – 7:05 p.m. New York time

I shall be looking at four prospective new positions coinciding with earnings: BBBY, BBRY, FINL and SONC. Secondarily, I also have potential non-directional plays unrelated to earnings announcements in sight for XOP, FB and KRE.
