Bull-spread strategy in Aurobindo

KS BADRI NARAYANAN | Updated on March 12, 2018


The outlook remains bullish for Aurobindo Pharma. The stock finds immediate support at ₹705 and the next crucial one at ₹678.

F&O pointers: The counter shed open interest on Friday. Option trading indicates a range of ₹700-740 for the stock.

Strategy: Traders can consider a bull-spread strategy on Aurobindo Pharma. This can be initiated by buying ₹740 call and selling ₹760. This will entail an initial outgo of ₹3,225, as the options closed at ₹19.95 and ₹13.5 respectively.

Both profit and loss are limited in this strategy. The loss is limited to the initial outgo (₹3,225), which will occur if Aurobindo Pharma closes below ₹740. On the other hand, maximum gain will be at ₹6,775.

For that to happen, the stock has to close at ₹760 or above.

We advise traders to hold the position for at least two weeks.

Follow-up: Last week, we advised traders to consider short-strangle on HDIL. The position is in-the-money, as the stock moved on expected lines. Traders can hold their position as advised.
