Options Volatility and Implied Earnings Moves This Week, May 20 – May 23, 2024

This week, several major companies will be reporting earnings. Among them are Nvidia (NVDA), Zoom Video Communications (ZM), Snowflake (SNOW), Target (TGT) and XPeng, Inc. ADR (XPEV).

Ahead of this week’s major earnings announcements, TipRanks has calculated the expected moves of these companies’ stocks. We use the at-the-money straddle of the options whose post-earnings expiration dates are closest to the earnings announcement date.

Note that options volatility tends to be high in the days leading up to an earnings announcement, due to uncertainty around the earnings. Investors don’t know whether the earnings will be positive or negative, so the price of options (aka the option premium) rises.

Furthermore, after the earnings announcement, because the uncertainty has been resolved, the price of options (the option premium) decreases substantially. This is known as the volatility crush.
