One other symbol, TRUE, made it past the early stages of analysis, also with a breakout to the upside, but its chart is insufficiently bullish to support a trade.
ADSK, which broke out to the upside on Friday immediately after earnings were published, failed confirmation under my Reset Day rules.
Only TIVO from among the seven symbols under consideration for a volatility play keyed to earnings made it past the final stages of analysis. HPQ, SDRL, ADI and VNET had implied volatility that was too low to meet my criteria, and DE and BLOX had overly wide bid/ask spreads on their front-month at-the-money call options.
I shall post an analysis of INFY prior to the closing bell today. I've posted an analysis of TIVO earlier this morning. See "TIVO: Volatility play".
