Next Week in Weeklys – October 20, 2013

The list of stocks with Weeklys did not change again, but there is plenty to talk about.  There were at least 30 stocks with short dated options trading that reported earnings last week.  That list is a bit longer this next week so I compiled some data that is relevant for option traders thinking about playing earnings.  I added a column showing what the stock did in response to earnings for the last report in addition to the biggest up move, biggest down move and absolute value of the average of the last twelve reports to the table.  Also, I already know I missed a few names.  My plan is to put up a supplemental list tomorrow night so if there is a company reporting this week that you want the data on shoot me an email at and I’ll get it in the update blog.
