12/8 – 2:10 p.m. New York time

With nothing in sight, I am shutting down early today, In outcomes, I performed no analyses, placed no trades and exited no positions. I completed my initial screening for next week and discussed it in this post, below.

12/8 – 12:50 p.m. New York time

I have completed my initial screening for next week. I shall be analyzing three options plays timed to coincide with earnings announcements …

In addition, there are nine potential shares plays during the week that in some respects fail to qualify for further analysis. Things could change during the week for any of the symbols, and if their metrics improve, then I shall bring them forward for analysis.

The “action” date is when I would complete analysis and, if a symbol passes, make the trade. In “meridian”, “am” denotes earnings announcements before the opening, and “pm”, after the closing bell.

12/8 – 11 a.m. New York time

With no potential trades on my agenda today, I shall spend the time screening symbols for next week’s trading.

12/7 – 10:05 p.m. New York time

I have no prospective trades for Friday.
