Recommendation: Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) Puts
NVDA provides graphics chips for smart phones and personal computers–and theirs is a cyclical industry that’s gapping down. The stock broke below support at $12 and looks like it could fall quickly to $10. Here is the best way to play more weakness in Nvidia…
Buy the Nvidia (NVDA) Jan 11 Put at a suggested price of 60 cents ($60 per contract).
After taking the position, enter a good-til-cancelled contingent order to sell this option if the stock hits its target price of $10.40. That should give you an option price of about $1.10, for an 83% profit.
Close this position and cut losses if the stock closes above $13.10, when the option price should be about 30 cents. The stock is currently trading at $11.59. The computer-simulated probability of this option hitting its target price is 23%.
