Be aware that jumping into a stock right as it gets ready to report means you likely won’t have enough time to build a profit cushion before the release. That leaves you exposed to a sudden and perhaps sharp drop if the company falls short of analyst and investor expectations. You can minimize your exposure by waiting to see how the company reports and how the market reacts. You can also use an options strategy to limit your potential downside.
