Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Bull Put Spread trade opportunity for NEXTERA ENERGY (NEE) for the 18-Apr-2019 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

NEE was recently trading at $194.54 and has an implied volatility of 11.95% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for NEE expiring on 18-Apr-2019, there is a 34.14% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $194.91-$201.65 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 33.30%.

52 week high: NEXTERA ENERGY recently reached a new 52-week high at $194.81. NEE had traded in the range $155.06-$192.17 over the past year.

Trade approach: Reaching a new 52-week high is a bullish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if NEE maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bearish side of $194.54 on 18-Apr-2019. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.

Upside potential: Using this bullish strategy, the trade would be profitable if NEXTERA ENERGY closes at or above $193.75 on 18-Apr-2019. Based on our risk-neutral analysis, there is a 56.96% likelihood of this return.

Downside risk: As with any options trade, there is a substantial downside risk where you may lose most or all of your investment.

Synthetic Long Discount Alert: QUTOUTIAO INC. AMERICAN DEPOSITARY SHARES $QTT trading at a 17.61% discount for the 18-Oct-2019 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for QUTOUTIAO INC. AMERICAN DEPOSITARY SHARES (QTT) for the 18-Oct-2019 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

QTT was recently trading at $13.28 and has an implied volatility of 33.77% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for QTT expiring on 18-Oct-2019, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $7.06-$25.77 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 82.77%.

Upside potential: This synthetic long position offers the same potential benefits and liabilities as a long stock position, but at a discount due to the significant premium at-the-money puts are trading at over calls. In this case, the long call position is opened at a strike of $12.50, which is already $0.78 in the money. An out-of-the-money put at the same strike is sold to finance the call, resulting in a net credit of $1.55 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $2.33 per share over the underlying price of $13.28 for a 17.55% total.

Downside risk: This discount is generally a sign of the stock facing considerable short pressure, and may indicate that the stock has become hard to borrow. However, if you have a long view of the underlying over this period, it could be a good opportunity to benefit from the upside at a major discount.
