Goldman Sachs recommended buying option straddles on Groupon Inc (NASDAQ: GRPN), Whole Foods Market, Inc., (NASDAQ: WFM) and Cree, Inc. (NASDAQ: CREE) ahead of earnings.

Derivatives strategists Katherine Fogertey and John Marshall suggested straddle positions that cost the same or less that the amount shares have moved on prior reports. Traders should look for the closest-listed February options.
