Fake-outs continue in the market, which is leading us to add a bearish trade to our positions as uncertainty rises. QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) got a big downgrade on Monday, and near-term prospects are pointing towards continued deterioration in the company’s margins.
We like the potential for a big downside move in the short term after resistance in the $62 range has been retested and the stock failed to break higher. In the short-term, we expect to see prices in the $50 range now that the news catalyst that drove it higher in November — Broadcom Ltd (NASDAQ:AVGO)’s buyout — is a much, much lower probability.
‘Buy to open’ the QCOM May 57.50 Put (QCOM180518P00057500) for a maximum price of $2.65.
