Trade of the Day: Krispy Kreme (KKD)

Look to Krispy Kreme for some tasty options gains


When it comes to food stocks, my Power Stocks scanner has identified two that are among the weakest, and have significant downside potential. The first is McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD). Yes—the blue-chip, dividend-paying stock has rallied since the beginning of the year, but the time has come for a turnaround. As an options trader though, I realize that just because a stock is bearish doesn’t mean there is a good options trade to be had.

There are only a few stocks every week that give signals strong enough to make them a candidate for profitable options trading. I have looked through my computer-generated list of Power Stocks and picked out the most volatile and liquid trades—and taken stock price movement and theoretical option values into account.

And that research has yielded a stock that stand out among the rest for options trading: Krispy Kreme (NYSE:KKD).

KKD, currently trading around $13, shows resistance at $14. My system shows a very high volatility rating for the stock, meaning it could plunge very suddenly.

Recommendation: Buy KKD August 13 put options at $1.15 or lower. After entry, take profits if the stock price hits $11.80 or the option price reaches $1.90. Exit if the stock price closes above $13.90 or the option price falls to 90 cents.
