Verizon's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Verizon is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $48.50 short put and a strike $43.50 long put offers a potential 5.71% 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 $48.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.27 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.73 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $43.50 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Verizon is bearish and the probability of a decline 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 Verizon is bullish.
The RSI indicator is above 80 which suggests that the stock is in overbought territory.
