Starting the Short Week with New Ideas

Fresh Options Ideas

To kick off this short trading week, we are going to jump right back into the mix with a trio of options ideas for our readers. We’ve already seen the major options success which has become characteristic for us, in 2020 so far. We’ll try to keep things rolling today with these new items of interest:

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – Despite BABA having been on a bull run for several months, BABA is slipping in the premarket this morning, and while it may only be a temporary aberration to its overall trend, we are going to signal some weekly Puts for observation in the near term. Those will be the BABA Weekly $230-225 Calls.

Twitter Inc. TWTR – Also on a months long run, TWTR has been moving to fill a massive topside gap on the chart in recent sessions, and we are going to be tracking both a short and longer term idea for this chain. Our targets here will be the TWTR Weekly $34.34-50 Calls & 02/28 $36-37 Calls.

Virgin Galactic Holdings, Inc. SPCE – We’re also interested in tracking an idea from a stock in the current ‘billionaire space race’. Let’s put the SPCE 02/21 $10-15 Calls on the radar to watch in the days and weeks ahead.

CarSmartt, Inc. CRSM

Most of our work these days pertains to big board stocks and options, but we do still scan for OTC opportunities like CRSM.

This is a penny stock which began to show signs of a bottom bounce last week. We’re going to track CRSM over coming sessions too see if it can establish more of a sustained run.

Morgan Stanley MS – 
Yesterday morning we were looking at some fresh options ideas, and among them was the MS Weekly $54.50-56 Calls. The stock had a solid session after reporting a beat on earnings and revenues for Q4 2019, aided by a good day for the markets at large.

Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Corp. KWBT

Lestly, we wanted to quickly recap the recent performance of another of our selections. We tagged KWBT on the 27th of December, and in the last couple of weeks the stock has been in good shape.

KWBT has run from .018-.0416, marking a fantastic run of 131% in just a short span. We’ll continue to keep this OTC play on the radar going forward.

New Options Ideas

Restaurant Brands International, Inc. QSR

This morning, we’re looking at one solid technical setup on QSR in terms of longer-term trade potential. The stock is currently trading just above its annual lows. Owner of Burger King, Popeye’s, and others, QSR had been in a general downtrend since the early Fall, but is now showing signs of a potential turnaround.

We’re going to want to highlight a set of options that we can observe over a period of weeks or even months to take advantage of a possible recovery, so we’ll go with the QSR 03/20 $67.50-70 Calls.

More Fresh Ideas:
TSM Weekly $58.50-60 Calls
MS Weekly $54.50-56 Calls
