Altria (MO) Offering Possible 9.17% Return Over the Next 6 Calendar Days

This article was originally published on this site

Altria’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Altria is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $65.50 short call and a strike $70.50 long call offers a potential 9.17% return on risk over the next 6 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $65.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.42 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.58 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $70.50 long call strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Altria is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Altria is bearish.

The RSI indicator is at 21.56 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

U.S. FDA to launch campaign against e-cigarette use among youth

Hot on the heels of its proposal to lower nicotine levels in cigarettes, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced plans on Tuesday for an education campaign to discourage use of electronic cigarettes among youth. The plan follows the agency’s proposal last month to both lower nicotine in combustible cigarettes and extend by four years the date by which e-cigarette manufacturers will be required to apply for authorization to sell their products. Its new policy “aims to strike a careful balance between the regulation of all tobacco products, and the opportunity to encourage development of innovative tobacco products that may be less dangerous than combustible cigarettes,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a statement.
