6/23 – 2:50 p.m. New York time

Outcomes: I entered a new position on KRE and exited positions on NVDA, ORCL and QQQ. I attempted to exit RHT but couldn’t get a fill I liked, so I’ll try again on Monday.

6/23 – 1:30 p.m. New York time

My exit orders on NVDA and QQQ have been filled, and I shall update their analyses with results shortly.

6/23 – 10:20 a.m. New York time

Among positions expiring next Friday, June 30, I placed exit orders in for QQQ, NVDA, ORCL and RHT. So far only ORCL been filled yet. I plan to exit ACN on Monday, and will make final decisions Monday on BBBY, BBRY and MSFT.

I shall also look at entering some of the non-earnings plays listed below in last night’s post.

6/22 – 8:30 p.m. New York time

I have no prospective earnings plays for action on Friday. SCHN is a possibility, but it lacks weeklys among its options inventory and I given the volume of prospects I have had each week, I’m reluctant to tie up the funds for the longer term requires by the monthlys.

I have seven potential direction-neutral plays unrelated to earnings announcements: XOP, KRE, OIH, XLE, COST, FDX and NKE. I shall be looking at these as needed to keep my portfolio size up throughout the week to come.

Friday marks a week before the June 30 options expire, and I shall be looking to exit or roll my holdings in that series, either Friday or the subsequent Monday. They are ACN, BBBY, BBRY, MSFT, NFLX, NVDA, ORCL, RHT and WGO.
