Boston Scientific is oversold on the daily chart, but not the weekly.
I don't care for this one as much as most of the others. This is more of a wild-card play. The best trade appears to be the $4 September calls for $1.03. My profit target is 65 cents or close out on option expiration date.
Safeway (SWY)Background: Safeway is a food and drug retailer and trades an average of 12.2 million shares per day with a market cap of $3.6 billion. 52-week range: $15.26 to 22.95 Shares have fallen 26.2% in the last year, and the average analyst target price for Safeway is $19.75. Investors are receiving 70 cents in dividends for a yield of 4.59%. In the last month the stock has fallen 11.8%. The last date Safeway released earnings was June 19, 2012, and the closing price before earnings was $15.80. Based on a recent price of $15.05, shares are down 0.3%. Safeway is oversold on the daily chart and the odds of a retest of $15.60+ is high enough to justify an make Safeway a bounce candidate. I like the September $14 put during the next few trading days for 45 cents or more. My profit target is 35 cents or close out on option expiration date. ACI data by YCharts
