GILD -- announces on 2/2 ( Tues ) after market close. The options have fairly good liquidity, and its implied rank is currently at 74.
XOM -- announces on 2/2 ( Tues ) before market open. Good liquidity, but the implied vol rank is not where I'd like to see it; it's currently 54, a contraction no doubt due to the bit of strength in oil we've seen the past week ... .
Moreover, with the still hanging in there in the broader market ( VIX is still marginally over 20), I can afford to be picky and/or not play at all, since my tendency is to slack off plays when the VIX above 15 and go for plays in the broader index ETF's like SPY , IWM , QQQ , and DIA ... .
Nevertheless, I'll look at a setup at least in GILD and keep an eye on XOM to see if ramps up to where I'd like to see it (70+ in percentile rank).
