What’s up with Costco Earnings?

Hey Five Star!

I’m coming to you from New York City. Last night, I was on “Fast Money”, on the Options Action segment talking about what could potentially happen on Costco earnings today after the close.

This is pretty time-sensitive, so here’s my full analysis with video…

The unique part about Costco is that it’s such a bullish stock, one of my favorites! BUT, historically, it doesn’t do well on earnings.

It’s interesting because there hasn’t been a run into earnings, and it’s been stuck at the $295 area of resistance…. but, there are a ton of call buyers in this stock, telling me traders are very bullish.

But, just like when the put call ratio gets lopsided, the same can happen with an individual stock. So, what do you think? Do you think the call buyers are right, and Costco will trade higher? Or, do you think Costco will trade lower on earnings, giving us a potential buying opportunity?

  1. You are correct but COSTCO did end up closing just above the $ 295.00 area of resistance. If corse this post is after the earnings release.

    • Yes, that is correct, but I was referring to the move after the earnings report. Upon earnings, it did end up trading lower, and closed at $291.87 on Friday. It typically trades slightly lower after the report, and then rallies in the proceeding weeks.

      Hope that makes sense –
