Caterpillar’s most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Caterpillar is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $138.00 short put and a strike $133.00 long put offers a potential 31.93% return on risk over the next 6 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $138.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.21 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.79 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $133.00 long put strike price.
