Dan Nathan On Lyft Earnings, Options


On CNBC's "Options Action," Dan Nathan shared his view about Lyft Inc's (NASDAQ: LYFT) earnings report, which is scheduled for Tuesday after the market close.

He said the options market is implying a move of around 10 percent in either direction for the event. This means that the at-the-money straddle costs around $6 and traders who expect the stock to make a bigger move than the options market implies could buy the straddle in an attempt to make money.
