(This publication is not providing advice, it is just published as an example.)
ANZ will report its result on 2-May-2012 & will go ex-dividend (about $0.65 fully franked) on 10-May-2012.
Furthermore, ANZ appears to be resting on its long term uptrend line at the $22.60 level before it moves higher again (see below daily ANZ chart).
Hence, I would recommend the following ANZ calendar call spread trade to take advantage of a potential rise in the ANZ share price.
Buy 50 May ANZ $23.50 call & Sell 50 Apr ANZ $23.51 call for a net debit of about $0.12 per spread GTC; costing about $600 in premium (before brokerage)
- Low risk: maximum potential loss = $600 plus brokerage
- No ongoing margin requirement
- High potential profit: if the Apr ANZ sold call expires worthless, then we will have an unlimited upside potential on the May ANZ bought call
