Eatery's shares have shed some 15% this week, but could fall more.
Trade-Ideas LLC identified Potbelly (PBPB) as a strong on high relative volume candidate
Investors considering a purchase of Potbelly Corp stock, but cautious about paying the going market price of $10.34/share, might benefit from considering selling puts among the alternative strategies at their disposal. One interesting put contract in particular, is the July put at the $8 strike, which has a bid at the time of this writing of 45 cents.
Legendary investor Warren Buffett advises to be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful. One way we can try to measure the level of fear in a given stock is through a technical analysis indicator called the Relative Strength Index, or RSI, which measures momentum on a scale of zero to 100.
Investors in Potbelly Corp saw new options become available this week, for the November 20th expiration. At Stock Options Channel, our YieldBoost formula has looked up and down the PBPB options chain for the new November 20th contracts and identified one put and one call contract of particular interest.
Potbelly (PBPB) stock is up after the company reported its 2015 third quarter earnings results.
The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 09/30/2015 settlement date, which shows a 414,654 share decrease in total short interest for Potbelly Corp , to 3,380,198, a decrease of 10.93% since 09/15/2015. Total short interest is just one way to look at short data; another metric that we here at Dividend Channel find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded.
Investors in Potbelly Corp saw new options begin trading this week, for the April 2016 expiration. One of the key data points that goes into the price an option buyer is willing to pay, is the time value, so with 218 days until expiration the newly trading contracts represent a possible opportunity for sellers of puts or calls to achieve a higher premium than would be available for the contracts with a closer expiration.
