On CNBC’s “Options Action,” Tony Zhang suggested investors should consider a bullish options trade in Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL). The stock is trading near a multi-month support level and the risk-reward on absolute and relative basis favors the long side, said Zhang.
He wants to use options to acquire the stock at a discount. He wants to buy the April $120 put for $5.05, taking advantage of relatively elevated implied volatility in Apple. When you sell a put option like this, you are obligating yourself to buy the stock if the stock is below $120 at the April expiration, explained Zhang. The net cost basis for the stock would be $114.95 or around 5% below the closing price on Friday.
