HD also has low odds of success, and a low-odds, low-volatility play would be a perfect candidate for a time spread, such as a diagonal, or a shares-options combo, such as a covered call. However, I've set that strategy aside for now; the exit rules were unclear and the positions, unproductive.
That leaves no prospects on my desk, and I shall not be entering any new positions today.
