IRobot Corp. shares plunged more than 16% in the extended session Tuesday after it beat earnings and revenue expectations but lowered its holiday quarter guidance, citing U.S. tariffs on robotic vacuum cleaners, among other issues. The robot vacuum maker reported fourth-quarter net income of $35.5 million, or $1.24 a share, compared with $31.9 million, or $1.12 a share, in the year-ago period. Revenue rose to $289.4 million from $264.5 million in the year-ago period. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had estimated earnings of 52 cents a share on revenue of $259.4 million. For the fourth quarter, analysts model earnings of $1.03 a share on sales of $444 million. IRobot lowered its full-year guidance to earnings of $2.60 to $2.80 a share on sales of $1.2 billion to $1.21 billion. Previously iRobot had expected full-year earnings of $2.40 to $3.15 a share on sales of $1.2 billion to $1.25 billion. In a statement, iRobot Chief Executive Colin Angle said it lowered guidance because of marketing conditions and the company’s plans, which include several strategies to moderate the impact of U.S. tariffs on robotic vacuum cleaners. IRobot stock has fallen 36% this year,
#SPX1dte Today I said to myself, nothing is happening so I might as well sell the 1-day trade early. Immediately after the fill, something happened. Now that daily trade news has quieted, we get to worry about Brexit again?
My spread was tight to begin with, so really can’t withstand even a little volatility. I was looking for the bounce to make it okay, but we fell again and are within expected move.
BTC $SPX Oct 23rd 2985/2965 put spreads for 2.50, after the bell. Condors sold for .90 about 100 minutes earlier. I’ll leave call side to expire.
I was going to leave the 3-day put spread to fight another day, but the end of the day was too ugly, then it just got worse after the bell.
BTC $SPX 2990/2965 put spreads for 6.25. Sold for 3.45 earlier today.
Upside Warning gave us a little this time around; hopefully it’s not done but I ain’t betting on it after the last few weeks.
Not filled yet but closing the 1-dte put side before the 4:15pm cut off
Yippee, finally back in. Took me a couple of days, before I hit the jackpot. Don’t know why I can post for months, and then can’t????? Thank you for your help Jeff. ;>) Goo.. um HonkHonk81

#ShortPuts – After last week plenty of firepower to put back to work. High margin here but below a lot of support and only 30 days out. One of the biggest drops on my watchlists today…
