. Justifiable, but it is a bit higher than the company’s historical valuation multiples. Two-year historic multiples would price the stock somewhere between $270 and $290/share, so a reversion to a mean multiple could drop the stock somewhere in that ballpark. Consequently, I’m inclined to play a range-bound thesis ; selling a near-dated May 24th weekly $285/$350 strangle (selling the $285 puts and $350 calls), hedged by purchasing a longer-dated strangle of approximately the same strikes, specifically the September $280/$350 strangle. Note that there are no September $285 puts listed, or else I would likely have chosen those instead. Sell May 24 $285 put Sell May 24 $350 call Buy Sep. 20 $280 put Buy Sep. 20 $350 call Some premium will come out of the longer-dated strangle post-earnings, but a decent amount of that premium should be preserved because it also captures the company’s subsequent earnings release in August.
