The Cheapest Options You Will See This Year

When an earnings event comes out, the premium in the options market will go down.

By a lot.

That's because the market no longer has to price in the risk of an event.

Yet there are sometimes in which the option premium gets so low that it makes sense to be a net buyer of options.

Let's take a look at an example.


This is VXAPL, which is the VIX for AAPL options.

There really wasn't any kind of bid going into earnings, and after earnings we saw it drop below 20.

This is an incredibly rare occurrence, and it tends to revert back.

These are levels you won't see the rest of the year. And we're seeing the same kind of setup in other high beta tech stocks like AMZN, FB, and GOOG.

If you've ever wanted to buy volatility, this is the best risk/reward you're going to get.
