Trade Alert Goldman Sachs (GS) – BUY
BUY the Goldman Sachs (GS) July, 2017 $205-$210 in-the-money vertical bull call spread at $4.40 or best
expiration date: July 21, 2017
Portfolio weighting: 10%
Number of Contracts = 23 contracts
I am going to use the dip in Goldman Sachs today to jump back into the banks and buy a position in the Goldman Sachs (GS) July, 2017 $205-$210 in-the-money vertical bull call spread at $4.40 or best.
This is a bet that (GS) will not trade below $210 by the July 21 expiration in 14 trading days.
The options market is more illiquid than usual today and trading spreads are wide. Don’t pay more than $4.60 for the spread or you’ll be taking on too much risk.
If you can’t buy options I think its pretty safe to buy the stock on a medium term view.
After six months of hibernation, I think the banks are about to make a move.
Interest in buying technology stocks up 40% of the year is waning, making the sector ripe for a rotation.
A long in Goldman Sachs would be a nice hedge against any such rapid sector rotation
As our profitable short position in the US Treasury bond market (TLT) is screaming at us, the bond market may have peaked for the year this week, and financials love rising rates.
Banks also passed their stress test with flying colors. They are now well capitalized enough to handle TWO 2008 type financial crisis.
This is the Federal Reserve’s the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review, otherwise known as CCAR.
