9780137084920: Trading on Corporate Earnings News: Profiting from Targeted, Short-Term Options Positions

Profit from earnings announcements, by taking targeted, short-term option positions explicitly timed to exploit them! Based on rigorous research and huge data sets, this book identifies the specific earnings-announcement trades most likely to yield profits, and teaches how to make these trades—in plain English, with real examples!

 

Trading on Corporate Earnings News is the first practical, hands-on guide to profiting from earnings announcements. Writing for investors and traders at all experience levels, the authors show how to take targeted, short-term option positions that are explicitly timed to exploit the information in companies’ quarterly earnings announcements. They first present powerful findings of cutting-edge studies that have examined market reactions to quarterly earnings announcements, regularities of earnings surprises, and option trading around corporate events. Drawing on enormous data sets, they identify the types of earnings-announcement trades most likely to yield profits, based on the predictable impacts of variables such as firm size, visibility, past performance, analyst coverage, forecast dispersion, volatility, and the impact of restructurings and acquisitions. Next, they provide real examples of individual stocks–and, in some cases, conduct large sample tests–to guide investors in taking advantage of these documented regularities. Finally, they discuss crucial nuances and pitfalls that can powerfully impact performance.

From the Back Cover:

Trading on Corporate Earnings News is one of those rare, high-quality pieces of work that is destined to become an instant source of value creation for serious investors. Its greatest strength lies in linking actual statistics to market behavior and fundamental analysis. Serious investors who study the material will undoubtedly discover its value as a springboard for further analysis. That said, nobody interested in structuring option trades around corporate events such as earnings should be without this book. John Shon and Ping Zhou must be commended for creating a study of this caliber.”

Jeff Augen, author, Trading Options at Expiration and Day Trading Options

 

“John Shon and Ping Zhou have transformed two dry subjects–earnings announcements and options trading–into a dynamic, interesting, well documented, and highly readable book. Anyone wanting to improve their trade timing will need to read this book. It is an excellent addition to the options trading literature.”

Michael C. Thomsett, author, Options Trading for the Conservative Investor

 

“John Shon and Ping Zhou have written the ultimate recipe book for trading earnings news with options. They cover the theory and evidence of earnings announcements and market reactions, and describe in great detail the implementation of option trading strategies that exploit these findings. Trading on Corporate Earnings News demonstrates that rigorous statistical, economic, and financial analysis can lead to profitable investments. I recommend this book as an excellent reference for all investors interested in improving their option trading skills using earnings news and for all readers curious about the fascinating field of accounting and finance.”

Minh Trinh, CFA, PhD, Managing Principal, Referee Advisors LLC

 

“John Shon and Ping Zhou have created a masterpiece based on clear and penetrating observations on stock price volatility. Their discovery that options-based trading around earnings announcements yields better returns, backed by their research and undeniable evidence, is groundbreaking. Written in simple and plain language, it is appropriate for the pro and novice alike. If you trade–or want to know how to trade options–you need to buy this book.”

John Reilly, Managing Partner, Alliance Capital Partners
