Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Call Credit Spread (NasdaqGM: REGN)
TheOptionPlayer.com sets up a Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (REGN) short-term (8-day) option strategy. Investors could simultaneously:
Sell the June week-three expiration REGN $325 call for $1.20 (Thursday closing bid/ask mean)
Buy the $330 call at .65 (Thursday bid/ask mean)
The difference between funds received and paid out is a $.55 per share credit which we keep if Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. stock closes below $325 on Friday June 20th but immediately exit the position if it appears the price will end up higher. Another suggestion is if the price gaps up open the trade using higher strike prices. See Guidelines page at www.theoptionplayer.com/ for explanation on how trade is set up.
Why we recommend it:
Last week we published an identical (NasdaqGM: REGN) trade that was profitable. The plan is to let the previous position expire worthless and use the same setup to execute a similar trade for next week's expiration. Another option is to "roll the position" by closing out the current trade before executing the next one. The market analysis used to define the strategy for the previous trade is still valid.
