Earnings Prospects 9/5-9/9

Out of 77 earnings announcements available for trading the week of Sept. 5 through Sept. 9, two have sufficient liquidity to qualify for my options strategy of selling implied volatility.

Neither would qualify for further consideration if I were analyzing them today.

HPE has insufficient open interest to support a trade.

Both HPE and KR have implied volatility below my standard minimum: the 50th percentile or higher of the annual range. However, they are both close enough that they could both qualify on volatility by the time action day rolls around.

I'll also consider all 77 symbols as potential shares trades under my small-lots strategy.
