This Week in Weeklys – 3/24/2014

The list of stocks with short dated options available had six additions last week.  I love how stocks that would have been no brainers for this list ten years ago are just being added (AOL and WDC come to mind).

New Weeklys

We are still between 4th quarter 2013 earnings announcements and 1st quarter 2014 earnings, but there are five companies with short dated options reporting this week.  Walgreen’s (WAG) starts off the week Tuesday morning.  I always find it interesting when a stock has had one of their biggest earnings price reactions in the previous quarter and WAG is a case of just this as is Blackberry which reports on Friday morning.  Thursday should also be exciting as each of the three stocks reporting in the morning have historically had big moves off earnings.
