Wednesday's Agenda update

In "Wednesday's Agenda" I identified five finalists for analysis, all them in connection with earnings announcements.

I've analyzed RRC, WDC and GNC.

As I approach the last two, MAR and NXPI, I find that that open interest on the options grids has degraded to the point where I can no longer construct a trade.

My goal is for the strike prices I use in a trade to have triple-digit open interest or greater. That's not the case with the last two symbols.

So I'm cutting them from the prospects list. I plan no further analysis of MAR and NXPI.
