Dan Deming's Bullish Citigroup Trade


Dan Deming of KKM Financial suggested on Bloomberg Markets a bullish options strategy in Citigroup Inc (NYSE: C) ahead of earnings report.

The company is going to report earnings on Friday and the options market is expecting a 3.5 percent move in each direction, explained Deming. He wants to use elevated implied volatility and make a bullish bet in Citigroup by selling the December 45 put for $1.33. The trade starts to lose money if the stock drops approximately 10 percent to $43.67. If it trades below $45, he is going to have to buy it at $45 and if it stays above $45, he is going to collect the premium.

Deming believes that banks should trade higher, if interest rates go higher.
