    Wednesday’s Vital Data: Coca-Cola, Qualcomm and Microsoft

    U.S. stock futures are circling unchanged this morning as traders take a breather following yesterday's fresh highs in the Nasdaq-100 and S&P 500.Source: Shutterstock Ahead of the bell, futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average are up 0.05%, and S&P 500 futures are lower by 0.04%. Nasdaq-100 futures have added 0.01%.In the options pits, the dash to record highs generated increasing volumes. As you might expect, calls led the bulls' charge. Specifically, about 20 million calls and 15.1 million puts changed hands on the session.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsMeanwhile, over at the CBOE, the single-session equity put/call volume ratio remains as uninspiring as ever. It slipped to 0.59 but continues to fiddle in the middle of 2019's range. The 10-day moving average matched the action by falling to 0.59.Options activity was juiced in the following stocks. Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) popped on earnings after topping expectations. Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) added to its large gains following its surprise settlement with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Finally, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) calls were hot ahead of tonight's earnings announcement.Let's take a closer look: Coca-Cola (KO)Coca-Cola released its first-quarter earnings before the bell Tuesday and beat expectations. Adjusted earnings grew to 48 cents per share, beating estimates by 2 cents. And revenue climbed to $8.02 billion, handily beating forecasts for $7.9 billion. * 10 High-Yielding Dividend Stocks That Won't Wilt KO stock saw a volatile session, ultimately ending up 1.75% on the day. The jump lands it square in the middle of last quarter's earnings gap, which should continue to fill. Look for KO to return to $50 in the coming days.On the options trading front, traders came after calls like sugar-deprived kids to soda. Activity fizzed to 424% of the average daily volume, with 113,617 total contracts traded; 82% of the trading came from call options alone.The 1.75% price jump fell well within market expectations. Premiums were baking in a 3.1% move on earnings, so chalk this up as a win for volatility sellers. The post-earnings volatility crush was on full display, driving the metric down to 15% or the 19th percentile of its one-year range. Qualcomm (QCOM)The rocket ship ride in Qualcomm continued in earnest, adding another 5.8% to its already immense gains. QCOM stock now sits at 19-year highs and is well on its way to revisiting its record peak of $100 reached during the dot-com craze.Traders favoring low-risk, high-reward setups should steer clear of QCOM right now. It's a momentum-drive move that is now extremely overbought. A pause or pullback would allow the stretched conditions to ease and lower-risk entries to develop.As far as options trading goes, the Street continues to heavily favor call options. The volume explosion continued on Tuesday with activity ramping to 409% of the average daily volume. By day's end, the total contracts traded eclipsed the half a million mark at 509,837 contracts traded. Calls claimed 67% of the sum.Implied volatility inched higher to 39% placing it at the 73rd percentile of its one-year range. Premiums are pricing in daily moves of $2.14 or 2.5%. Qualcomm's earnings report is slated for May 1. Microsoft (MSFT)The current stage of our bull market has the Nasdaq-100 to thank. And although many tech stocks are throwing their weight behind the Nasdaq's dominance, it's Microsoft that has arguably been the most consistent helper.MSFT stock set yet another record high yesterday. With the 1.5% rise, its year-to-date gains have now grown to 24%. Its price trend is a beauty, complete with rising moving averages across all time frames. Accumulation days litter the landscape with nary a whiff of distribution. You bet against buyers at your peril here.The theme of call popularity continued with MSFT. Total activity ended at 219% of the average daily volume, with 290,811 contracts traded. Calls accounted for 75% of the day's take.Implied volatility remains subdued despite the looming earnings announcement set for tonight. Option premiums are baking in a $3.66 or 2.9% move.As of this writing, Tyler Craig didn't hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Trade of the Day: Qualcomm Stock Is All Set for a Contrarian Approach

    Shares of chip maker Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) have soared in parabolic fashion after a settlement earlier this month with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). The settlement led to a six-year chip-supply agreement. While the getting has been good for QCOM stock bulls over the past few days, the stock is now reaching severe, near-term overbought territory. Active investors and traders could look to play the stock from the short side for a trade.Source: Shutterstock A former mentor of mine used to remind me daily that some of the best opportunities in markets arise after an asset makes a quick multi-day/week parabolic move to the upside or to the downside. Why? Because the crowd has a habit of chasing steep charts, which inevitably leads them to buy the highs or sell the lows. By taking the opposite of those emotions, traders can often capitalize quick and high probability gains. QCOM Stock ChartsThe recent settlement that Qualcomm reached with Apple is undoubtedly a positive for Qualcomm stock as this previous uncertainty has kept many investors away from the stock and it also brings back royalty payments from Apple to Qualcomm.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Click to EnlargeMoving averages legend: red - 200 week, blue - 100 week, yellow - 50 weekMoving on to the charts we see that as recently as early February, QCOM stock was trading at the very low end of its long-term up-trending range. The 50% rally over the past week or so has now pushed the stock to levels not seen since 2000. * 10 Oversold Stocks to Run From While this "breakout" nature of the rally would not necessarily be a reason to position for a near-term bearish trade, what is concerning is the parabolic nature of the rally. Click to EnlargeMoving averages legend: red - 200 day, blue - 100 day, yellow - 50 dayOn the daily chart we see that as a result of the steep multi-day move in QCOM stock, its daily MACD momentum oscillator is now at record all-time overbought readings. While I am not advocating a major collapse in the stock from here (far from it, I actually am bullish the stock on pullbacks), it would not take much from here for the stock to set in a pause and mean-revert lower back toward the $80 level.Thus, active investors and traders could look to short QCOM stock or buy at the money puts or put spreads for a trade. Upon a mean-reversion period, any strong bullish reversal would be a stop loss signal.Join me on Wednesday, April 24th for a special webinar to showcase the highest probability candlestick pattern that I know and practice.
