This week we are looking at another of the Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) Top 50 List companies. We use this list in one of our options portfolios to spot outperforming stocks and place option spreads that take advantage of the momentum.
Consider Integrated Device Technology (IDTI) Following the Correction
Several analysts are expecting further upside for Integrated Device Technology, here are two of them – What the market is missing about Integrated Device Technology and Two worthy stocks for investors: Hovnanian Enterprises, Integrated Device Technology.
IDTI Chart June 2018
IDTI has been correcting lower over the past two weeks and is now seen trading at some important technical support. Specifically, the stock is seen bouncing from a horizontal level residing at $31.30. This level was notably important through several gaps that took place in late 2017 and earlier this year. As well, the stock price is near the 200-day moving average, an indicator it has not traded below on a sustained basis in about two years.
If you agree there’s further upside ahead for IDTI, consider this trade which is a bet that the stock will continue to advance over the next three weeks, at least a little bit.
Buy To Open IDTI 20JUL18 29 Puts (IDTI180720P29)
Sell To Open IDTI 20JUL18 32 Puts (IDTI180720P32) for a credit of $0.69 (selling a vertical)
This price was $0.02 less than the mid-point of the option spread when IDTI was trading near $32. Unless the stock rallies quickly from here, you should be able to get close to this amount.
Your commission on this trade will only be $2.50 per spread (the rate charged by thinkorswim for Terry’s Tips’ subscribers). Each contract would then yield $66.50 and your broker would charge a $300 maintenance fee, making your investment $233.50 ($300 – $66.50). If IDTI closes at any price above $32 on July 20, both options would expire worthless, and your return on the spread would be 28% (568% annualized).
