Earnings Season – Managing Risk

Earnings Season – Managing Risk

Aired On

Oct / 13 / 2021

Gareth Ryan
IUR Capital

For many investors, earnings season brings with it a heightened degree of uncertainty for the portfolio, as exposure to single names can magnify the daily impact of sharp moves post-earnings. This is particularly the case with the tech sector. Implied volatility helps us to determine implied moves within the options market.

Join Gareth Ryan, Founder & Managing Director at IUR Capital as he looks at how investors can manage their portfolio risk during a busy earnings season. Gareth will look at taking a long volatility position on large-cap tech names, and also option strategies for near-term downside protection.

This event will be an intermediate knowledge level for options. A Q&A will be at the end.
