AMD earnings preview.


The major indices aren’t showing their hand early after the rally yesterday. We’ll have to see how they decide to end the month, which will be the 3rd straight down month for stocks. AMD reports earnings after the close. Right now options are pricing an almost 7% move. Recent earnings have seen moves -7%, -9%, +13% and -2%. Intel recently reported and the stock moved sharply higher. 

IV for Friday’s options are about 105, with 30-day IV about half that. The 30-day realized vol (how much the stock has been moving into earnings) is just 39, much less than the 1-year realized vol of 49. Although that realized vol has picked up in the past week with the stock down 7%. The stock is now down about 27% from its highs this Summer.

An Iron Condor selling the move (at the expected move for the week) puts the upper breakeven (101.50) above that big round number of 100 (which also has heavy open interest). A bullish call spread out to December expiry needs the stock above 100 to make significant profits (breakeven 99ish). In other words, see the importance of 100 if the stock were to go higher in the trade images below. It may be the level that decides a lot of winning and losing positions.
