There is a bullish momentum pattern in WEC Energy Group Inc (NYSE:WEC) stock 7 calendar days before earnings, and we can capture that phenomenon explicitly by looking at returns in the option market. The strategy won’t work forever, and in fact, it hasn’t even won more often than it has lost. But since the winning trades are so much larger than the losing trades, it has returned 93.9% even with a win rate that isn’t above 50%.
