NKE -- POST SPLIT/EARNINGS PREMIUM SELLING PLAY

NYSE:NKE   NIKE INC
After its split and shortly post-earnings, NKE             still enjoys a fairly high level of volatility such that it offers a 1.00 credit plus premium setup (rank 53/implied 24).

Here's a setup:

NKE             58/67 Feb 12th short strangle
POP%: 74%
Max Profit: 1.07 credit ($107/contract)
BPE: Undefined
Break Evens: 56.93/68.07

Notes: I ordinarily only want to enter a short strangle when the implied volatility rank exceeds 70%. However, my guess is that the split may have affected the 52-week vol             stat (don't quote me on that), so I'm willing to play it even though its volatility isn't above the 70th percentile ... . That being said, we've got earnings upon us, so I'll have to look at it again at market open, see what buying power I have available, and make a decision as to whether I want to enter a 45 DTE             setup here or not.
