Next Week in Weeklys – 11/3/2013

The winding down of 3rd quarter earnings season is under way.  However there are twenty two stocks with short dated options available for trading that report earnings this coming week.  Again I have compiled a list of those stocks along with the biggest up move, biggest price drop, absolute average of price changes, and last quarter’s stock reaction to earnings.

The list appears below, but I think most interest falls to Tesla (TSLA – 162.17) which reports Tuesday after the close.  We are currently hosting a group from China at CBOE for three weeks of education.  As part of the program we paper trade options on different stocks.  TSLA was their first choice for practice option trading this coming week.  The other two stocks they choose are also earnings names – Groupon (GRPN – 9.93) and Priceline (PCLN – 1052.50).  Both of those companies will report their earnings results Thursday after the close.
