Earnings Calendar for October: Profit With Options

Within the next month 80% of the S&P 500 companies will report earnings. Many of these earnings will exceed expectations due to the near-collapse of the U.S. Dollar, as companies that do significant business outside the U.S will repatriate those earnings at very advantageous exchange rates.

However, many companies will also disappoint, those that do not export significantly, and those in the many sectors where there is no recovery, and these are many.

This is a prime situation to use earnings straddles, where investor can profit whether the stock moves up or down, as long as it moves. As usual, we will be looking at attractive companies to do just this. Please stay tuned.
