Taming the Earnings Season Beast with a Bull Heavy Watchlist


Hey Trader,

We're rockin’ into the biggest week of the year, where the Magnificent 7 stocks take center stage. My trusty volume profile playbook is taking a backseat while my earnings season hustle rides shotgun… since we all know earnings season is a whole different animal!

Flexibility is our middle name! Mark and I are like the Swiss Army knives of the market, smoothly adjusting our strategies to fit any scenario. Speaking of strategies, don't you think the Lions should have gone for that field goal? 

As I said last week, BTC caught a nice bid with COIN and MARA frolicking right behind. Using my strategy, I set up Verizon calls for our Closers which made an insane 40% explosion overnight!

I’m Olivia Voz, your volume profile authority, and I have a (bull heavy) watchlist waiting for you — full of the top stocks I am watching now through the end of the week. Mark Sebastian, my trading partner in profits, is here with a double-the-fun breakdown of the heavy hitters Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Alphabet Inc Class A (NASDAQ: GOOGL)so catch it all right here…

Here’s my watchlist this week:

First, the Bulls: 

SentinelOne Inc (NYSE: S)

iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSEARCA: IWM)

CarMax, Inc (NYSE: KMX)

And I am keeping an eye on general energy names to push higher…

And my solo Bear ticker to watch…

Carnival Corp (NYSE: CCL)

In addition to this watchlist, Mark has a breakdown on deck of two major names — GOOGL and MSFT…

Earnings Spotlight: MSFT and GOOGL

By Mark Sebastian

Since this is a huge week for earnings I wanted to give you something special today…

Given the run up these names have had, the earnings premium does not seem expensive.

Let's take a look at the straddle in MSFT.

With the stock trading 410, I can buy the Feb 02 410 call and put (the straddle) for less than 19 dollars.

Microsoft has moved that much since the 12th of January without any earnings.

Overall the market is pricing in about a 4.25% move. That is a touch above the normal of 4.05 for MSFT.  But again, given the move, it does not seem to be enough.

GOOGL, trading 153.50, is smack in between the 152.5 and 155 strangle. It is priced about 7.10 plus the 1.50 in between and we are looking at a price of about 8.50 or so.

That is also relatively inexpensive given the move GOOGL has had.

GOOGL is pricing in about a 5.2% move above the normal implied move of 4.65, but not exactly over priced.

It has moved more than this strangle since January 17.

I think unless these earnings absolutely knock your sock's socks off we could see some reversion. 

As the market continues to knee jerk through this hectic week, Closers are cashing in at the final hour. We made money at both the start and end of the show just following my incredible Closing Indicator.

This week's trading was nothing short of spectacular and Mark and I have used versatility, adaptability, and an uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time to lead our members to maximum #CashFlow! 💰📈
