3M Earnings (MMM)

Starting with ER coming up 4/26.

Sorry as I am just missing charting, but I am interested in looking at grabbing Puts today to ride bearish sentiment in market. However it has been on the rise since April 18, up over $5 since then. I have not done well with ER plays and will watch but I am leaning bearish as you can see below. Welcum any additional feedback, much love…

Thanks guys it was in my opinion a good thesis to play but didn’t drop as much as I expected.

Still feel with market sentiment it may drop but not playing for now.

Mods if we can archive for next ER
