Aug 17, 2018 - There is a bullish momentum pattern in Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ:ADBE) stock 7 calendar days before earnings, and we can capture that phenomenon explicitly by looking at returns in the option market.
Aug 15, 2018 - Invitae is trying to set itself up as the Amazon of genome sequencing by making the process of ordering medical-grade tests so easy and cheap that testing for genetically inherited diseases becomes as simple as ordering books online.
Aug 15, 2018 - By adding some timing around the back-test, we find a strategy which has shown a profitable back-test for six-years in a row -- that's 23 trades without a loss going back to 2012.

Aug 13, 2018 - Today we turn back to volatility trading -- and this time it's in the S&P 500 and Russell 2000. We present back-test results of a clever, risk controlled strategy that can be built in Trade Machine using the custom strategy feature, and the results are simply staggering.

ROKU | FB
Aug 09, 2018 - Spotlight Top Pick Roku (ROKU) beat earnings, turned a surprise profit, beat guidance, and rose sharply on the news.

But the company's direction is becoming clear - it wants to be the Facebook of TV, and it's working.
Aug 08, 2018 - Pre-earnings straddles and strangles hold a special place in the back-testing of option trades in that these strategies tend to show quite contained loss profiles due to the nature of the position, and for the right stocks, rather large gain profiles. We see this exact phenomenon in Children's Place Inc (The) (NASDAQ:PLCE), and it's well worth a look.
Aug 05, 2018 - Salesforce.com Inc (NYSE:CRM) has shown strong momentum 7 calendar days before earnings, as its stock has flourished in the cloud computing revolution. Now it's time can capture that phenomenon explicitly by looking at returns in the option market.
Aug 02, 2018 - There is a pattern of bullish momentum in Intuit Inc (NASDAQ:INTU) stock just 3 trading days before earnings, and we can track that by looking at swing returns in the option market as farback as 5-years.
TGT | AMZN
Aug 01, 2018 - There is a marvelous pattern in Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) right after an earnings miss that could be a great back-test to earmark in case we see a down market in the coming month, especially in the retail sector which is always on pins and needles for evidence of the oncoming Amazon apocalypse.

This is a slightly advanced option trade that bets on volatility for a period that starts one-day after earnings and lasts for the 6 calendar days to follow, that has been a winner for the last 3 years with one losing trade.
Jul 31, 2018 - Applied Materials Inc (NASDAQ:AMAT), much like Lam Research (NASDAQ:LRCX), is a tech bellwether. While it doesn't get the headlines that the FAANG stocks do, it is the precursor -- the indicator, of technology industry health.

Lam Research recently beat earnings and called a hard bottom to a lull in memory demand for September and that sent the stock flying after earnings, even as the broader market sold-off.

Today we note a powerful bullish momentum pattern in Applied Materials stock 1 trading day after earnings, if and only if the stock showed a large gap up after the actual earnings announcement.
Jul 28, 2018 - This is one of the more powerful post-earnings non-directional back-tests we have come across.
