    Will AAPL Earnings Be "SELL THE NEWS" This Time?

     

    The market has a way of proving that "pigs get slaughtered" by being too greedy. I have been long a ton of Jan 14 Leap Calls since AAPL was at $400. I have made enough from the calls to "almost" retire but have this gut feeling that for now, great AAPL earnings are already "priced into" the $525 pps since Cook said that revenue's would come in at the high end.

    I an certain AAPL will work its was back to retest $700 but in the short-term, I fear AAPL pps may take a breather and a "sell the news" reaction after Monday's ER.

    I hope I am wrong, but the market has a way of making us look foolish whenever a trade has been very profitable and we are hoping for even more (greedy).

    I would like to hear thoughts from options players. I am thinking of closing out my Jan calls before the ER on Monday, and rolling them to April 14s or July 14s. Monday is the last ER for the Jan calls so the premiums are likely to deflate quite a bit, even if AAPL shares go up or stay the same after the ER.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
