Of 461 large-cap stocks and exchange-traded funds in my analytical universe, none meets my criteria for further consideration.
There are no prospects for trades coinciding with earnings announcements.
Lacking prospects, I shall do no further analysis on Friday, June 24.
The next earnings season will begin on July 11 and last for six weeks, through Aug. 19.
by Euan Sinclair
The stocks in my analytical universe all have analyst coverage through the stock-ranking company Zacks Investment Research. Not all of the exchange-traded funds are so covered.
I screen for 1) suitability of the options grid, including open interest of three figures or greater on the strike prices I would need to use to build a position and 2) the absence of an earnings announcement within the lifespan of the like options series I would trade, 3) implied volatility in the 60th percentile or greater of its most recent range, 4) average volume of 3 million shares a day or greater, and 5) a price of $20 or greater.
