Canadian National Railway – Bearish Option Trades

If you are in agreement that MSFT's shares are susceptible to a pullback within the next 5 months then you may wish to consider the conservative option [...]

3M – Employing Options With This Troubled Conglomerate

  3M Company (MMM) is experiencing significant challenges. Following the release of Q1 2019 results on April 25, 2019, its share price dropped ~$29.

Goldman Sachs – Bull Put Spread Option Strategy

I view The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS) as a long-term investment. I am currently of the opinion there is a reasonable probability GS's share price will rise within the next 6 months.

Nike, Inc. – Covered Call Option Transactions
