Sea of Opportunity (http://seaofopportunity.blogspot.com/) is a blog created by a group of options traders in San Francisco, CA. The mission is to analyze what the "big money" is betting on and evaluate the risk reward to see if the trade should be followed or not.

  • Trade of the Day: Cerner April/June $100 long put calendar 0 comments
    Mar 14, 2011 6:44 PM | about stocks: CERN
      
     


    The Trade
    A trader sold 10,000 April $100 puts at $1.70, and bought 10,000 June $100 puts at $4.30 for a debit of $2.60 or $2,600,000.
     
    Risk/Reward
    As you can see from the graph above, the long put calendar has unlimited risk and limited profit potential. The maximum profit potential is $6,125,869 at an underlying stock price of $100 at expiration. At this price level at expiration, the short puts would expire worthless, and the long puts would be in the money. The upper break even price level at expiration is $114.75.
     
     
     
    The line shown is the upper break even price level. CERN traded 23,904 contracts today compared to average daily volume of 994. The 52-week range is a low of $72.05 and a high of $104.99. CERN closed today at $103.53, nearly closing at all time highs. It's interesting to note that CERN will report earnings in late April.
