New Trade – call spread risk reversal

Stock / Symbol: [private_monthly]Crocs / CROX [/private_monthly]
Price at trade post: $17.40
Option Strategy: call spread risk reversal

Reasoning: [private_monthly]CROX[/private_monthly] recently reported very good earnings numbers and the chart shows a solid up trend. Normally, bullish as we are on this stock, we'd likely just put on a call spread. However, given the stock's price point, we're also able to sell an out of the money put to finance the entire trade. IMPORTANT - if the stock is trading under $16 at close of trading on April 15th, we'll be required to purchase [private_monthly]CROX[/private_monthly] at $16 per share. As we'd happily own the stock at that level (7% lower than it's current price), we're adding the sale of the put to this position. If we do end up owning the stock, we'll then look to sell a May 16 strike call against the position.
