Wednesday's Agenda

KR and MON continue to qualify as options volatility plays, with implied volatility at the 50th percentile or higher of its annual range. I shall do a full analysis of KR. I already hold an options spread position on MON and so shall set the symbol aside.

PG, which was within 5 percentile of qualifying as a volatility play, saw a decline in implied volatility and will receive no further consideration.

Turning to small lots shares trades, EGAN qualifies as an earnings play, and TSM continues to trade above its price channel and so qualifies as a breakout trade.

Among the Stochastic-RSI choices, RTK appears to have the best chart with the top Zacks ranking and high beta.

See Wednesday's Prospects for the full pool of prospective trades.
