McDonald’s’s most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on McDonald’s is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $165.00 short put and a strike $160.00 long put offers a potential 13.38% return on risk over the next 8 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $165.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.59 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.41 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $160.00 long put strike price.
