Alphabet Inc. GOOGL Stock As A Short-Term Trade Using Options
Traders can take advantage of GOOGL stock’s current short-term momentum, while avoiding broader market volatility by using options.
I am looking at the in-the-money $2,790 & $2,785 strike price calls with the 10/15 expiration.
For puts, the $2,800 contracts have good open interest & are in-the-money, and the $2,805 puts also look appealing, although less liquid.
Tying It All Together
Overall, GOOGL stock looks appealing to both traders & investors alike.
For a technology company, their valuation is very fair, and their balance sheet figures look much better than other stocks.
In the near-term, their current momentum looks set to keep them climbing higher, although broader volatility as well as earnings calls beginning this week may hinder that growth.
This makes it even more important to have proper hedges established in the near-term.
Traders & investors alike should take a closer look at Alphabet Inc. stock.
