Earn 18% While Waiting To Buy AMD At Support

NASDAQ:AMD   Advanced Micro Devices Inc
Hey guys! Today, we're looking at a Trade Idea in AMD, the popular semiconductor company that often plays second fiddle to Nvidia (NVDA).

Like most of our trade ideas, this post focuses on selling put options - this time, on AMD shares.

In case you're unfamiliar with options -> when you sell a put option, one of two things happens.


A.) The stock price finishes above the strike price of the put when the put expires, in which case you make money.

B.) The stock price finishes below the strike price of the put when the put expires, in which case you will be forced to buy the stock at the strike price.

With the trades we publish, if the stock goes up, sideways, or down a bit, you'll make money. If the stock goes down a lot, then you'll be forced to buy shares.

In other words- either make money, or buy the dip!

The trick is finding the right stock at the right time.

Right now, AMD seems like a great candidate for this strategy.

Selling the October 20th, 2023 $105 strike put options yields more than 18% on an annualized basis, and 105 is a decent support zone, as you can see on the chart above. This is also a popular pivot area if you zoom out further:

The stock has also been in a bullish uptrend, and the recent, flat price action is a solid consolidation that should be perfect for selling puts:

But what about fundamentals? All of this means scant little if you're forced to buy a stock that will go down over the long term.

Fortunately, AMD is growing its top-line sales and bottom-line profits at a steady pace on the back of increased demand for semiconductors:

While the company is diluting shareholders somewhat, the valuation, at only 8x sales, seems reasonable when compared with peers and to the company's own multiple historically.

Plus, the trade has a 76% chance of earning max profit by expiry.

Overall, we think selling the October 20th, 2023 $105 strike put options is a great win-win trade for income-seeking traders.
