Netflix (NFLX) – Bearish Earnings Options Action Trade for July 16th, 2018

On Friday’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of Netflix (NFLX) stock. NFLX has recently broken out to the upside of a 10 year ascending wedge formation, which is extremely bullish. That bullish trend has however turned parabolic, which suggests that there are greater risks to the downside and primed for a possible correction. Coupled with a double top formation and earnings this week, the stock would need a signifcant beat to continue it’s bullish trend. Expecting NFLX to possibly pull back on earnings, Michael Khouw suggests buying an Aug 350/370/395 Put Butterfly for a $5.00 Debit. As of Friday’s close, this spread is trading at $5.00.
