Options Action Recap

Two titans in their respective industries. Two earnings stories. But that's where the similarities end.

On last Friday's Options Action, we previewed earnings for both Apple and Goldman Sachs . Curiously enough, the team was bearish on the stock making all-time highs (that would be Dan Nathan's bearish strategy on Apple), and bullish on the stock that can't get out of its own way (that would Mike Khouw and Carter Worth getting behind Goldman with shares near a 52-week low). With both reporting tomorrow, we'll see if it pays to be a contrarian.

You can watch the segment here.
