Dear Reader,

On Friday, we looked at a Daily Price Chart of Howmet Aerospace Inc., noting that HWM’s OBV line is sloping up, validating the stock’s recent bullish trend.

For today’s Trade of the Day we will be looking at a Keltner Channel chart for Public Service Enterprise Group Inc. stock symbol: PEG.

Before breaking down PEG’s daily Keltner Channel chart let’s first review which products and services are offered by the company.

Public Service Enterprise Group Inc. is a diversified energy company. Its operations are mostly located in the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic parts of the United States. The company principally operates through two key subsidiaries – PSEG Power LLC and Public Service Electric and Gas Company.

Now, let’s begin to break down the Keltner Channel chart for PEG. Below is a Daily Price Chart and the three Keltner Channels for PEG stock.

Buy PEG Stock

The Hughes Optioneering Team uses the Keltner Channels as an indicator to determine whether a stock is overbought or oversold. If a stock’s daily stock price is trading above the upper Keltner Channel, this signals that the stock is temporarily overbought and subject to a retracement.

Even stocks that are in the strongest bull trends do not advance in a straight line. There are always price retracements along the way. When a stock becomes overbought, it’s price will typically decline soon after as the inevitable profit taking occurs.

The PEG daily price chart shows that the stock is in a strong price uptrend and has become overbought several times. You can see this as PEG has traded above the Upper Keltner Channel on multiple occasions recently.

But, in every scenario when PEG became overbought, the stock soon experienced a pullback.

Finding opportunities when a stock experiences a pullback is why the Hughes Optioneering Team uses the Keltner Channels. They help us find a lower-risk entry point.

The Keltner Channel “Buy Zone” occurs when a stock is trading below the upper Keltner Channel. Once the daily price is trading below the upper channel, it provides a lower-risk buying opportunity as the stock is likely to rally.

Our initial price target for PEG stock is 75.85 per share.

100.2% Profit Potential for PEG Option

Now, since PEG stock is currently trading in the Keltner Channel ‘Buy Zone’, this offers a prime trade entry opportunity. Let’s use the Hughes Optioneering calculator to look at the potential returns for a PEG call option purchase.

The Call Option Calculator will calculate the profit/loss potential for a call option trade based on the price change of the underlying stock/ETF at option expiration in this example from a flat PEG price to a 12.5% increase.

The Optioneering Team uses the 1% Rule to select an option strike price with a higher percentage of winning trades. In the following PEG option example, we used the 1% Rule to select the PEG option strike price but out of fairness to our paid option service subscribers we don’t list the strike price used in the profit/loss calculation.

Trade with Higher Accuracy

When you use the 1% Rule to select a PEG in-the-money option strike price, PEG stock only has to increase 1% for the option to breakeven and start profiting! Remember, if you purchase an at-the-money or out-of-the-money call option and the underlying stock closes flat at option expiration it will result in a 100% loss for your option trade! In this example, if PEG stock is flat at 73.56 at option expiration, it will only result in a 9.6% loss for the PEG option compared to a 100% loss for an at-the-money or out-of-the-money call option.

Using the 1% Rule to select an option strike price can result in a higher percentage of winning trades compared to at-the-money or out-of-the-money call options. This higher accuracy can give you the discipline needed to become a successful option trader and can help avoid 100% losses when trading options.

The goal of this example is to demonstrate the powerful profit potential available from trading options compared to stocks.

The prices and returns represented below were calculated based on the current stock and option pricing for PEG on 6/10/2024 before commissions.

When you purchase a call option, there is no limit on the profit potential of the call if the underlying stock continues to move up in price.

For this specific call option, the calculator analysis below reveals if PEG stock increases 5.0% at option expiration to 77.24 (circled), the call option would make 45.3% before commission. 

If PEG stock increases 10.0% at option expiration to 80.92 (circled), the call option would make 100.2% before commission and outperform the stock return 10 to 1*. 

The leverage provided by call options allows you to maximize potential returns on bullish stocks.
