LULU Watch

lululemon athletica inc. (LULU) has moved to bull phase on Person's Proprietary Signal (pps), ending my three days of waiting for the stock to give an entry signal. The on-balance volume has set a higher high, confirming the signal.

LULU is a play keyed on the Dec. 9 earnings release.

I went through the arguments pro and con in my initial posting on Nov. 15.

The 20-day moving average, my support level, has moved up to $46.33, with stock trading at $48.30, so I'm structuring the position as a bull put spread, selling the DEC $46 put and buying the $44 put for a $65 credit per contract. Each contract gains $3.45 per day due to time decay, since it is a net short position.
