3M's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on 3M is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $197.50 short put and a strike $192.50 long put offers a potential 35.14% return on risk over the next 9 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $197.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.30 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.70 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $192.50 long put strike price.

The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for 3M is bullish.
