Based on an analysis of the options available for XLU expiring on 19-Oct-2018, there is a 33.25% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $52.54-$54.08 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 84.46%.

Trending on StockTwits: StockTwits® is a financial communications platform for the financial and investing community. On their site, UTILITIES SELECT SECTOR SPDR was recently trending, indicating that breaking news and/or market activity has significantly impacted sentiment toward the stock. This movement can be interpretted as a sign of more near-term price movement for the underlying.

Synthetic Long Discount Alert: TURTLE BEACH CORPORATION COMMO $HEAR trading at a 10.82% discount for the 17-Jan-2020 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for TURTLE BEACH CORPORATION COMMO (HEAR) for the 17-Jan-2020 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

HEAR was recently trading at $17.83 and has an implied volatility of 66.07% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for HEAR expiring on 17-Jan-2020, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $6.71-$51.14 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 60.21%.

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 $17.50, which is already $0.33 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 $1.60 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $1.93 per share over the underlying price of $17.83 for a 10.82% 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.

In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 24.48%.

52 week low: TE CONNECTIVITY recently reached a new 52-week low at $83.06. TEL had traded in the range $83.84-$108.23 over the past year.
