Hess Corporation’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Hess Corporation is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $72.50 short call and a strike $77.50 long call offers a potential 11.61% return on risk over the next 30 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $72.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.52 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.48 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $77.50 long call strike price.
