WHAT I'M LOOKING AT FOR OPTIONS PLAYS FOR THE WEEK OF 11/2

NASDAQ:TSLA   TESLA INC
With volatility having bled mightily out of the broader market, earnings plays is where the premium selling game is at, so that is what I'm focusing my attention on this week.

With earnings plays, I'm looking at doing either iron condors or short strangles (buying power permitting) for underlyings with an IVR             above 70 and high IV (50+). To a certain extent, whether I get into some of these will hinge on liquidity, which I will look at as earnings get closer. Generally speaking, I like to see the bid/ask spread to be .05 or narrower, although I will naturally go higher if the price of the underlying is greater, as long as it isn't ridiculous ... .

Earnings Plays

TSLA: announces on 11/3 AMC             (After Market Close); Current IVR/IV 65/54
KORS: announces on 11/4 BMO             (Before Market Open): Current IVR/IV 88/56
FB: announces on 11/4 AMC             ; Current IVR/IV 51/34 (Less than ideal, but worth keeping an eye on, since price is currently around $100, which would make it a worthwhile premium selling play)
WFM: announces on 11/4 AMC             ; Current IVR/IV 100/57
SWKS: announces on 11/5 AMC             ; Current IVR/IV 75/56
NVDA: announces on 11/5 AMC             ; Current IVR/IV 76/44
DIS: announces on 11/5 AMC             ; Current IVR             40/33 (Like FB             , less than ideal, but worth keeping an eye on, since price is currently around $114, which would make it a worthwhile, extremely short-term premium selling play).

Non-Earnings Plays

WYNN: Current IVR/IV 74/52 (I tried to get a fill on a short strangle on Friday, but didn't; will try again Monday if IVR/IV is still there).
EWZ: Current IVR/IV 49/44 (This ETF has the highest IVR             of a non-individual underlying for the moment, with the possible exception of some sub-$20 plays which generally aren't worth playing for premium; I currently have a position on in EWZ             that is at the cusp of 50% max profit, so I may consider putting on another play 45 DTE             in EWZ             just to keep some longer-term background trades on or, in the alternative, use it to add long delta to my portfolio either via a naked short put or a put spread).
