Next Week in Weeklys – 12/8/2013

I’m not making any excuses for skipping out on putting together Next Week in Weeklys the past couple of weekends, let’s just blame it on the holidays and travel obligations and move forward.  I’ll do my best to work on some consistency.

The number of available Weeklys has started expanding again (insert joke about waistlines and Thanksgiving right here).  Here’s a quick list of exchange traded funds and stocks that now have short dated options available for trading –

The earnings calendar is pretty light, but there are four stocks with Weeklys available releasing numbers next week.

Earnings 12082013

It’s a light calendar and the best thing is that all the earnings happen before the open.  That means traders have no excuse this week not getting out there right after the bell and getting their holiday shopping knocked out.
