The AUD/USD has now dropped over 5% since trading at .8125 on September 8th. As a result, ANN shares have pushed higher. 

We currently see ANN trading at 18X earnings and estimate FY18 EPS around USD .95 cents. 

As such, we consider ANN a good buy/write strategy up to $23.50 to increase cash flow and enhance portfolio returns.
