Monday's Outcomes

I closed my bull position on BBBY, which was keyed to the earnings announcement. The last trading day for the options is Friday. See my update to the Jan. 8 post "BBBY: Volatility play", with a results, insight into odds of the trade becoming profitable before expiration, and a "lessons learned" discussion.

I analyzed two symbols as potential very short-term trades keyed to earnings announcements but declined to take them both. See today's analysis at "AA, KBH: Volatility plays".
