9/19 – 3:20 pm. New York tine

No trades today.

9/19 – 2:05 p.m. New York time

I made an error in assessing GIS as a potential earnings play. It has no weekly options — only monthly contracts — and therefore can’t be used for a trade this week. I plan to post no analyses  today.

9/18 – 8:40 p.m. New York time

I shall be considering GIS as a potential earnings play on Tuesday; I’ll post a full analysis.

Three other symbols are on the preliminary list. ADBE and FDX have Zacks Investment Research earnings surprise predictor scores that are higher than I like, and BBBY has a higher beta than I’m comfortable with. I plan no full analyses.

No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
