Friday's Prospects

On Thursday, July 28:

Of 501 large-cap stocks and exchange-traded funds in my analytical universe, none meet my criteria for further consideration as options plays and  qualify for small-lots stock trades.

There are no prospects for trades coinciding with earnings announcements.

Out of 840 symbols put through Turtle Trading analysis market close, none broke beyond the upper boundary of their 20-day price channels.

Out of 55 potential earnings plays, one qualifies for a trade with a bull Zacks rating and a positive Zacks Investment Research earnings surprise predictor.

I shall do further analysis of trades on Friday, July 29.

The next earnings season began on July 11 and will last for six weeks, through Aug. 19.
