Roper Industries (ROP) Offering Possible 17.3% Return Over the Next 15 Calendar Days

Roper Industries's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Roper Industries is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $440.00 short put and a strike $420.00 long put offers a potential 17.3% return on risk over the next 15 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $440.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $2.95 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $17.05 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $420.00 long put strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for Roper Industries is bullish and the probability of a rise in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

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

First quarter GAAP and adjusted revenue increased 13% to $1.53 billion, while organic revenue decreased 1% (compared to 4% growth in the first quarter of 2020).

Our 2020 software acquisitions, led by Vertafore, continue to perform very well. We also reduced our debt by approximately $500 million in the quarter, once again demonstrating our ability to quickly de-lever after acquisitions.” “The quality of our enterprise continues to improve as we see meaningful growth in our recurring revenue base,” said Mr. Hunn. “We are also encouraged by signs of recovery across end-markets that were impacted by the pandemic. As a result, we are very well positioned for continued double-digit compounding.” Increasing 2021 Guidance The Company now expects full year adjusted DEPS of $14.75 – $15.00, compared to previous guidance of $14.35 – $14.75.
