I’m incredibly excited for the upcoming season of my Earnings360 service. We’re now heading into my 19th consecutive quarter running the program. Next Monday, I will be hosting a webinar to explain my unique approach to profiting from these price moving events.
I think you’ll find that my options-centric approach brings a new level of market analysis, options expertise, and accessibility — as its generated consistent gains for over 19 quarters. Earnings360 executes an average of 30 trades per quarter (3-4 per week) with just $350 per trade. This makes it active but also ensures that no single trade results in an outsized loss. While we had two losing quarters of $560 and $340, The program has had an average return of $1,490 per quarter for a total profit of $25,425 over the past 18 quarters (4.5 years).
You read that right, Earnings360 members risk just $350 per trade and have raked in more than $25,000 in profit over the years. And the future continues to look bright, regardless of what the market looks like today.
What this service doesn’t do is take wild shots via purchasing out-of-the-money “lottery tickets,” hoping to hit a directional home run.
Earning360 harnesses predictable changes in implied volatility (IV) that comes before and after earnings reports; namely the expected decline in implied volatility that occurs after earnings report releases; something I call the post-earnings premium crush (PEPC).
Why Should You Play Earnings?
Most of the time, stock prices are random walks towards parts unknown. Sentiments, fleeting news narratives, and cursory analysis are applied to explain the various ups and downs. However, these so-called “experts” mostly ascribe reasons after the fact.
Four times a year, the truth about a company’s profitability, or lack thereof, is revealed, causing stock prices to react immediately and often dramatically. In these quarterly reports, investors get an unvarnished accounting of companies’ state of business and their immediate prospects.
This quarter should be particularly interesting as companies are facing incredible cross currents of roaring inflation, stocks that are trading at their lowest levels in three years, as well as expectations being all over the map.
I expect this to lead to very high IV heading into the reports that provide pumped-up premiums for us to harness, using carefully selected strategies such as basic vertical spreads, iron condors, and double diagonals. (To learn these strategies as well as others, you’ll have to join us!)
You shouldn’t worry about being overwhelmed. Each trade recommendation is sent via text and email alerts, explaining the rationale behind employing a specific options strategy. Additionally, I provide exact step-by-step instructions on how you can place the order using defined-price limits.
Earnings360 typically sends approximately 25-30 trade recommendations over the course of the six-week program. This season, which will run from October 17 to December 1, should present us with a plethora of opportunities for large profits in a very short period of time!
