On Friday’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of McDonald’s (MCD). McDonald’s has underperformed the market and sector since peaking in 2011, but has started to outperform recently. Coupled with a bullish trendline and triangle formation at its apex, suggests a possible breakout higher. Expecting MCD to catchup with its sector, Michael Khouw suggests selling a Dec 165 Put for a $4.25 Credit. As of Friday’s close, this put was trading at $4.45.
