Thursday's Outcomes

I opened two positions coinciding with earnings announcements -- AMZN and SWKS -- but declined to take a third potential trade on SAVE.

I partially exited UNH after the price slid slightly below the profit range less than two days before the end of trading on the options. I sold the puts, converting the position into a bear call spread. I'll wait until the options expire on Saturday before updating the analysis with profit or loss.
