Thursday's Prospects

On Wednesday, July 27:

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

There are no prospects for trades coinciding with earnings announcements.

Out of 949 symbols put through Turtle Trading analysis market close, none broke beyond the upper boundary of their 20-day price channels.

Out of 255 potential earnings plays, SEVEN qualify for trades with a bullish Zacks rating and a positive Zacks Investment Research earnings surprise predictor.

I shall do further analysis of trades on Thursday, July 28.

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