[Options] Autodesk Approaching 52-Week Highs

My favorite setups are stocks making new all-time highs after emerging from a consolidation.

My second favorite setup is a 52-week breakout.

We’re on the cusp of getting one in Autodesk $ADSK.

Check out this chart:

What we have here is a base that began forming in late 2021 and a nearly two-year-long tightening coil that appears to be concluding with a fresh break to the highest prices since February of this year.

Meanwhile, my analyst Steve Strazza commented to me that these less large but still large-cap tech stocks are catching nice volume flows.

I like it and I’m going to play it for a run back towards early 2022 highs in the $280 range.

Here’s the Play:

I like buying an $ADSK June 230/280 Bull Call Spread for an approximately $17.00 debit. This means I’ll be long the 230 calls and short an equal amount of 280 calls and the debit I pay today is the most I can lose:

But I’ll look to exit this spread to minimize any further losses under either of these two conditions:

  1. $ADSK sees a closing price below $220 per share. Or,
  2. The value of our spread losses 50%.

If either scenario materializes, I’ll exit this spread to protect my remaining investment in this trade.

Meanwhile, if/when $ADSK trades to/through $280 per share, I’ll look to take my profits on the trade. The most I can make is $33.00 on this spread, and the closer we are to the expiration day, the bigger my profit will be.

If you have any questions on this trade, please send them here.
