WellPoint Offering Possible 20.19% Return Over the Next 10 Calendar Days

WellPoint’s most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on WellPoint is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $87.50 short put and a strike $82.50 long put offers a potential 20.19% return on risk over the next 10 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $87.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.84 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.16 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $82.50 long put strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for WellPoint is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for WellPoint is bearish.

The RSI indicator is below 20 which suggests that the stock is in oversold territory.

Reuters – (Adds UnitedHealth Group comment in 5th paragraph) Nov 6 (Reuters) – A top U.S. health insurer gave the first detailed view of how the problem-plagued rollout of President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law is affecting the industry, saying on Wednesday it had cut its enrollment forecasts by at least a half and expected the government to delay the sign-up deadline. Humana Inc said that because of technical problems preventing millions of Americans from accessing the federal HealthCare.gov website since it opened on Oct. 1, the company had slashed its expectations of signing on 500,000 new plan members to an estimate of closer to 250,000. The open enrollment period ends on March 31, and Republican and Democratic lawmakers are asking the Obama administration to give people more time to sign up for plans offered in online marketplaces.
