Today’s trade: iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF (SOXX)
The set-up: The iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF has been hot – it was up 1.9 percent Monday and is up nearly 60 percent over the last 12 months – but just like much of what is out there in these market conditions, it feels overpriced.
The play: After its two most recent dips, SOXX at-the-money call options have snapped back with gains well in excess of 10 percent. I’m expecting that to happen again, so I’m looking to buy two months’ worth of at-the-money call options on the next dip.
I’ll buy the options at $147.51, with a very tight stop-loss in case SOXX doesn’t follow up the dip-reversal trend. I’ll be very satisfied with a 10 percent gain here, taking profits by $155.
