For those of you who have been patient enough to secure a low risk entry on MO, your patience has paid off.
As you can see MO has found support at the 76.4 fib retrace and a trendline that spans back to 2008. If the fib support holds here and proceeds upward, that gives us a target of around 100% - 123% fib zone.
The price action formation is also a bull flag on...
Buy the Jan 17 47.5 Put and Short the Jan 17 52.5 Put (0.41 and 1.18 each right now)
Our goal is for price to remain above or equal to 52.5 by expiry (January 17th) so that our Anchor short gives us our premium.
Shares of MO have been under tremendous pressure since the FDA mentioned banning methol cigs/e-flavors, but don't let that fool you.

Yesterday when the market went down upon open, I cut loss on $MO 1019C62 call (0.5 from 0.83) thinking without checking it will also drop with the market. It actually went up pretty well and closed at my original entry price. Today 10/5 it is still relatively strong.
Lesson is do not trade based I what I think - trade the charts and trends.
Stock is currently in a downward trend. Before 2018 strong upward trend. Thus, might be now only a correction on higher timeframes.
However, downward trend shows strength. I like the short-term upward trend, which I classify to be only a correction within the down-trend. Recently price showed sign of weakness, by the relatively deep downward pull within the last...
$MO - Heavy selling today in Altria Group Inc, along with $9M in December Puts being purchased at $60 & $55 strikes. It appears the strong resistance at $61 is holding and stock is headed for further declines (lower low) into next ER in late October.
Medium term price target - $50 by late October

On the weekly timeframe, MO (Altria) is back to a level we've missed for some months. Buyers were able to break the .78 fib retrace and a strong downslope resistance. The weekly close was confirmation after last week's daily close zone. 57.50 was a strong buyer support zone for 4 straight week closings.
A strong open above the 200 EMA is pushing MO toward buy...
