AMD Analysis

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD)

I have entered a short iron condor on AMD, using options that trade for the last time 29 days hence, on Oct. 5. The premium is a $0.98 credit and the stock at the time of entry was priced at $28.48.

I made the decision to enter the trade in my account based on a high implied volatility rank and a trending counter to the broad markets.

The profit zone for this position is between $32.98 on the upside and $25.48 on the downside.

Implied volatility stands at 72%, which is 4.8 times the VIX, a measure of the volatility of the S&P 500 index.

AMD’s IV stands at its peak for the past year, after elimination of an outlier.

The price used for analysis was $27.95.

The premium is 49% of the width of the position’s wings.
