💡Trade Ideas — $WMT, $GPRO, $FB, $EA, $SHOP, $TSLA

April 30, 2017

Need some trading ideas to get the week started? We’ve got you covered! This is our weekly issues May 1 — May 5 where we go over macro economics, economic calendar, upcoming earnings and list a few trade ideas.


Last week was bullish for the US stock market. Maybe a little too bullish as many tickers went into overbought territory.

Technology stocks were up nicely in general last week as earning releases showed better than expected results.

Favorite ETFs

$SPY — After a nice uptrend two weeks ago last week showed weakness as overbought appeared Thursday, 4/27/17.

$USO — Oil was volatile last week, and $USO saw the same. Trading is near the strong $10 support and a bounce is expected soon.

$GLD — Chart analysis shows this gold ETF trading at support of its upward price channel. If equities retreat this week then gold may be sought.

$XLF — This financial ETF showed weakness last week. Profit taking for financial tickers is expected to continue and Puts for $XLF should rewards traders.

Economic Calendar

Earnings Calendar

$WMT — Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

$WMT hit an important resistance last week and showed signs of dipping. The company’s ER is 5/18/17 so a dip before a rip is expected.

Catalyst- Technical trade

Trade- BUY $76.00 May 5, 2017 Puts

$GPRO — GoPro, Inc.

$GPRO actually had an ER beat 4/27/17 but other values in the quarterly report spooked some traders. The $8.25 support was reached after the Friday’s dip and analysts are still bullish on the ticker.

Catalyst- Post-ER

Trade- BUY $8.00 May 19, 2017 Calls

$EA — Electronic Arts Inc.

$EA has its ER 5/9/17. A nice uptrend has occurred the past few weeks and a dip may be in order before ER allowing Calls to be cheaper before the expected ER beat.

Catalyst- Pre-ER

Trade- BUY $95.00 May 19, 2017 Calls

$SHOP — Shopify Inc.

$SHOP has its ER 5/2/17 with a wider loss projected than any quarter the past two years. The company is trying to build its market share so profitability isn’t expected for a few more years, but an ER beat can be very helpful to this stock’s value.

Catalyst- Pre-ER

Trade- BUY $85.00 May 19, 2017 Calls

$FB — Facebook, Inc

$FB has its ER 5/3/17. Chart analysis shows an exhaustion candle from last Friday trading similar to one that appeared last January. The difference this time is that $FB has its ER in three days and the bulls could continue to win through half this week.

Catalyst- Pre-ER

Trade- BUY $155.00 May 5, 2017 Calls

$TSLA — Tesla Motors, Inc.

$TSLA ER is 5/3/17 with negative profits expected to keep decreasing. Chart analysis shows a nice upward price channel going into ER. This ticker can rise and fall quickly making options very profitable if the correct trend is chosen.

Catalyst- Pre-ER

Trade- BUY $330.00 May 5, 2017 Calls
