Starbucks (SBUX) Offering Possible 27.55% Return Over the Next 6 Calendar Days

Starbucks’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Starbucks is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $55.50 short call and a strike $60.50 long call offers a potential 27.55% return on risk over the next 6 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $55.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.08 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.92 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $60.50 long call strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Starbucks is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Starbucks is bearish.

The RSI indicator is at 35.03 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
