This Pharma Stocks Offers A Potentially Profitable Hedged Option Setup

Piramal Enterprises Limited — PEL.IN

The stock has under-performed the Pharma Index over the past couple of weeks. Against the broader markets as well, the stock has not performed while it stayed in a prolonged sideways consolidation.

Currently, it is just broken out on the upside with greater-than-average volumes. The stock is placed much away from the center point on the RRG when bench-marked against both the broader NIFTY 500 Index and the Pharma Index. This creates a room for a larger alpha to be captured.

This technical setup creates a potentially profitable Hedged Option setup; presuming that the stock will move past the 1180 level and settle above that level by June 25 expiry. Based on this view, a short-term trader can consider the following spread:

Buying PEL 1140 CE 25JUN & Selling PEL 1180 CE 25JUN

By executing this, one would pay Net Premium of Rs. 17.50, i.e. Rs. 5377 (17.50*309). Maximum Profit Potential is Rs. 6983 and Maximum Loss Potential is Rs 5377.
