Macy’s’s most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Macy’s is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $49.00 short put and a strike $44.00 long put offers a potential 10.38% return on risk over the next 30 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $49.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.47 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.53 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $44.00 long put strike price.
