Thursday's Agenda

I have three prospects on my desk this morning, all of them potential earnings plays. They are C, RAI and STX.

At Wednesday's close all three had implied volatility below my minimum requirement, the 60th percentile or higher of its most recent range.

However, at the open this morning volatility on STX took an upward leap and now stands in the 87th percentile, making it tradable.

I shall post a full analysis of STX today, and reject the other two without a full analysis.
