  • Hi Richard
    I am not quite sure what this is referencing. Can you elaborate on it at all?

  • I think it comes down to your goal. My goal is to put sell and earn the profit as the stock climbs. If the stock falls I can use a rescue strategy or I can accept shares. I like JNJ Stock so accepting shares and then selling options against those shares would be my goal. But if you are trying to avoid the shares then it cannot hurt to wait for the earnings.There are thousands of stocks to trade every day. Why risk your capital in a trade that concerns you when there are others that are perhaps better at present for your strategy.
