Amgen’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Amgen is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $177.50 short call and a strike $182.50 long call offers a potential 10.86% return on risk over the next 10 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $177.50 by expiration.
