I started this thread for all the earnings play lovers. Usually when I play earnings, I buy or sell a few days (up to a week) before the earnings report, and close the position just before the earnings. Every once in a while I carry my trade through the earnings. Just like what happened with RIMM today, which was sweet. I am considering buying GOOG calls on any pullback in the comings days and close the position before the report. Does anyone else have any earnings play on mind? How about shorting MER? What do you think of that.
