Recommendation: Short Trade

What I Am Looking At:

  • $50 round number is a very significant level for shares going back eight years.
  • Up 10% year-to-date, may see shares stall at this level.
  • Peak call open interest for the May and June series resides at the 50-strike, may contribute to resistance.
  • Sentiment is optimistic as short interest represents a lowly 1.05% of the float.
  • 19 out of 23 analysts rate the shares a "buy" or better, potential for downgrades.
  • The 10-day buy-to-open call/put ratio stands at 1.48 indicating a preference among option participants for calls versus puts.
  • Implied volatility on JPM options is near multi-year lows, which could be viewed as complacency.
  • Quarterly revenue growth (year-over-year) is -8.7%.
Strategy: Possible target down to the 0% year-to-date level (pink line) coinciding with the 200-day moving average. Possible stop above March high.
