Tomaeto Tomahto

Facebook is set to report earnings today after market close. Recent sentiment has been very bullish, however, with the fall of Apple, Google, and Microsoft; the market is now second guessing itself.

Put action has greatly increased in the last couple days and investors are seeing a true divergence in opinion.

And it is not just showing up in mainstream media. The charts, and subsequent interpretations, are showing the same mixed signals.

IBD sees a cup and handle consolidation pattern with a $117.09 buy point. A bullish pattern. We will call this the Tomaeto. 😉


Yay! If it does indeed surprise.

Another stock and chart analysis site comes to a much different conclusion. A multiple top bearish pattern. We will call this one the Tomahto.


Ahh!! If it does indeed crash.

So which one will it be?

Potaeto or Potahto?

  1. As of 1:00 today, twice as many calls have be bought at $107 compared to $107 puts. Which is bullish and your chart shows that the stock fell days before their Jan 27 earnings release. So, if Facebook beats estimates like in Jan then you could double your money by buying the call options.
    If not, you would lose $400 per option plus commission.

  2. In general, I do not make a bet on earnings… Tech stocks ar to hot too handle for me for now.

    Just for the fun, and because I like the cup with handle better, I would bet on bullish…!

  3. So 2 bullish events, 7 bearish events equals buy a call option?
