Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA) has been one the most heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The worldwide travel restrictions have caused an incredible decrease in demand for Boeing products. As a result, the company’s revenue has fallen by about $16 billion and its net income by nearly $4 billion in just the past year.

As for the stock, BA is already down 5% on the year and has taken a 37% haircut in the last 12 months. While the shares are well off their March 18 seven-year lows of $89, they're also a ways off their Feb. 12 annual high of $349.95. The good news? BA's $200 level has emerged as support in recent months.

As far as options are concerned, even with earnings looming BA's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 50% sits in just the 13th annual percentile, revealing low volatility expectations are being priced into near-term contracts -- a boon to potential premium buyers. Plus, the stock has consistently rewarded premium buyers over the past year, per its Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) reading of 80 out of a possible 100. This shows the equity has tended to make larger-than-expected moves on the chart, compared to what the options market has priced in.
