10 months ago
AAPL             announces earnings tomorrow after market close, so look to put on a play before the end of NY trading.

Here are two possibles:

AAPL             Feb 5th 84/89.5/110/116 iron condor
Probability of Profit %: 66%
Max Profit: $93/contract
Buying Power Effect: ~$507
Break Evens: 88.57/110.93

AAPL             Feb 5th 89.5/110 short strangle
Probability of Profit %: 68%
Max Profit: $142/contract
Buying Power Effect: ~$1600
Break Evens: 88.08/111.42
