Baidu’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Baidu is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $227.50 short call and a strike $232.50 long call offers a potential 91.57% 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 $227.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $2.39 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $2.61 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $232.50 long call strike price.
