Mastercard (MA) Offering Possible 26.26% Return Over the Next 16 Calendar Days

Mastercard's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Mastercard is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $242.50 short put and a strike $237.50 long put offers a potential 26.26% return on risk over the next 16 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $242.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.04 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.96 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $237.50 long put strike price.
