Tuesday's Agenda

I shall analyze one volatility play with options, timed to coincide with an earnings announcement, TGT.

I am looking to trade shares of PLCE using my small-lots strategy. The company publishes earnings on Wednesday before the opening bell and has a bull rating from Zacks Investment Research as well as an expectation of an upside earnings surprise.

Four of my momentum plays continues to qualify for trading under the small-lots strategy: PCMI, SAIC, HNI and SIMO.

KNL's price dropped below the 9-day exponential moving average, disqualifying it. I shall replace it with RTEC.
