Caterpillar’s most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Caterpillar is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $140.00 short put and a strike $130.00 long put offers a potential 5.71% return on risk over the next 8 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $140.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.54 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $9.46 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $130.00 long put strike price.
