JCP Earnings Before The Bell Tomorrow

jcpenney

JCP reports earnings before the bell tomorrow and the stock will likely make a big move.   Macy's reported earlier this week and the stock busted 3% higher to open  the day.  Are we going to get a similar move from JCP?  Or is the stock going to plunge below $20?  Below is my chart on JCP and my quick take on it.

In a little over 3 months the stock has fallen almost 50%, could we be looking at further declines post earnings?  I'll let my option purchase do the talking -  I bought calls on JCP during Wednesdays session the $22 Aug18 Strike for $1.09,   they closed today at $1.71.   Am I going to regret holding them through earnings?  The good part about going out to next week, is I have 6 more days left.  If JCP trades flat or only modestly higher I have time for my options to gain more value next week.

 

If JCP can break over $23.40 we are looking at a move back to $28.20 and then $30.  A good earnings report will make this move possible over the next few weeks.  That is what I see with JCP.  A break of resistance at $23.40 and a powerful rally to $30.00.
