The shares of D R Horton Inc (NYSE:DHI) recently failed to conquer the +10% year-to-date level and the $100 region, and broke below a trend that lasted from November to February. What’s more, the stock could fill a gap around the $78-$80 area, and is breaking below peak put open interest, which could create a delta hedge and push prices toward the 80- and 85-strikes. With this in mind, we are initiating a short position on DHI.
