Tesla shares are set to move as much as 11.1% over the two days following its Wednesday afternoon earnings announcement, options data from Trade Alert shows.




The estimate measures an options strategy known as a straddle, through which traders buy both put and call options to bet on the size of a stock move by a certain date.




There's less open interest activity in near-term puts ahead of the Wednesday report compared to the quarter prior, according to Trade Alert.




The data suggests traders aren't betting as heavily on an earnings miss.
