THIS WEEK'S EARNINGS PLAYS -- HD, FSLR, CRM, LOW, TGT, BIDU

NASDAQ:FSLR   FIRST SOLAR INC
Here's are next weeks earnings plays that I'm thinking of playing via options, assuming the implied volatility rank "stars" line up correctly ... :

HD: announces on Tues             2/23 before market open.The rank is 55, the implied 32, neither of which is that great. If IV doesn't pop, I'll pass.
FSLR: announces on Tues             2/23 after market close. With a rank of 72 and an implied of 69, it's good to go.
LOW: announces on Wed 2/24 before market open. Its rank is 65; implied, 35, so it's kind of the edge. Like HD             , its volatility needs to pop a bit for me to play.
TGT: announces on Wed 2/24 before market open. Rank: 57; implied 33. Needs to pop.
CRM: announces on Wed 2/24 after market close. Also good to go with a rank of 71 and an implied of 60.
BIDU: announces on Thurs 2/25 after market close. It's good to go with rank at 72, implied at 60.
EOG: announces on Thurs 2/25 after market close. Good to go, but I don't think I've played this one recently, which is surprising because it's an oil             and gas play, and that sector's been hot volatility wise.
HLF: announces on Thurs 2/25 after market close. Also good to go, rank and implied volatility wise.

I'll post setups the day immediately preceding the announcement if it looks like they're still good plays.
Comment: Passed on HD, LOW, and TGT. Volatility just wasn't there ... .
FSLR seems to be a short term put rather downward, not sure with the earning..do you think they might beat and is it a call or put? any suggestion

Most of the earnings I play nondirectionally. But if SCTY is an indication of what the solar space has to offer, I think that FSLR is likely to come off this level a bit. The general rule is that cheap gas/oil is generally bad for solar ... .
