Trade of the Day: KB Homes (KBH)

This earnings trade has plenty of time to play out after the report is released

   

KB Homes (KBH) reports earnings later this week on Friday morning. Before that, DR Horton (DHI) will likely be reporting, although that is not confirmed yet.

Either way, the comments we are most interested in will be forward-looking considering the recent changes to the yield environment. KBH has just broken a head-and-shoulders reversal pattern, with a downside price target at $17 per share. Investors will be looking for reasons to sell. The earnings report could easily facilitate that move, but we want to have enough time before expiration to be flexible about when we exit just in case momentum looks likely to push the stock to $15, which would be roughly where we expect long-term support to kick in.

Recommendation: Buy to open the KBH August 18 Puts (KBH130817P00018000) for a maximum price of $1.50.
