Potential Anadarko Petroleum (APC) Trade Targets 3.47% Return

Feb 08, 2018 ( via COMTEX) --

Anadarko Petroleum (<a href="">APC</a>) is a good candidate for a covered call at the $57.50 level. The Mar 16, 2018 call at that price should fetch a credit of about $3.14, which means the entire position has a net debit of about $55.57. This trade has 3.01% downside protection. Another option would be to buy the APC Jan 18, 2019 $35 call instead of holding a long position in the stock. This lowers the net debit to $21.94, but the position only has 3.01% downside protection. Technical indicators for the stock are bearish and Anadarko Petroleum has a 52-week low of $39.96 and 52-week high of $70.
