Will Logitech (LOGI) Continue to Post Steady Gains?

Monday, January 18th, 2021

This week we are looking at another of the Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) Top 50 List companies.  We use this list in one of our options portfolios to spot outperforming stocks and place option spreads that take advantage of the momentum.

LOGI has rallied 230% from its lows last year and several analysts expect the upward move will continue, here are two of them – Logitech (LOGI) Reports Next Week: Wall Street Expects Earnings Growth and 5 Computer Stocks to Buy That Aren’t Apple or Microsoft.

Technicals

A steady uptrend has been taking place since November. During this time, the stock has been trading within a rising channel and shallow dips have been bought. With LOGI pulling back towards channel support, there could be a good buying oppurtunity around current levels. The 20-Day moving average also comes in to play near the lower bound of the trend channel to create a confluence of support.

If you agree there’s further upside ahead for LOGI, consider this trade which relies on the stock remaining above $100 through the expiration in five weeks.

Buy To Open LOGI 19FEB21 95 Puts (LOGI210219P95)
Sell To Open LOGI 19FEB21 100 Puts (LOGI210219P100) for a credit of $2.08 (selling a vertical)

This credit is $0.02 less than the mid-point of the option spread when LOGI was trading near $101.  Unless the stock rallies quickly from here, you should be able to get close to this amount.

Your commission on this trade will be only $1.30 per spread.  Each spread would then yield $206.70. This reduces your buying power by $500 and makes your investment $293.30 ($500 – $206.70).  If LOGI closes at any price above $100 on February 19, both options will expire worthless, and your return on the spread would be 70% ($206.70 / $293.30), or 798% annualized.

We have found that the Investor’s Business Daily Top 50 List has been a reliable source of stocks that are likely to move higher in the short run.  Recent additions to the list might be particularly good choices for this strategy, and deletions might be good indicators for exiting a position that you might already have on that stock.

As with all investments, you should only make option trades with money that you can truly afford to lose.

Happy trading,
