Opened a trade here fade the recent rally and add some negative deltas to balance the portfolio.
Following another great trade idea from NaughtyPines! (link below)
Any number of reasons a summer 'tech-wreck' could evolve: trade war, AAPL cutting mobile parts orders from suppliers, weakening Chinese economy etc ...
The top holdings are; AAPL , MSFT , FB , GOOG , V, INTC , T, VZ , CSCO (not sure how V is a 'tech' name?)
Some fundamentals on XLK : The forward PE is near 19, and P/B ratio over 5. There's almost no yield, so it's all about the estimated growth , which if revised down should get punished.
Based on a _DCF valuation model: XLK fair value around 75 by year end... based on 2019 estimates and assuming 13.6% growth .
For the same deltas you could short 40 shares of XLK and borrow $2850 worth of stock, but would be charged the overnight borrowing rates as well.
Paid 2.75 initial debt. 25% profit target was 3.43
SOLD -1 DIAGONAL XLK 100 21 SEP 18/17 AUG 18 76/72 PUT @3.50
