Options Movers & More


AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Update

We want to backtrack to the options idea we offered up to our readers on Monday morning. We focused on longer-term targets, but the results have already begun to show after what has been a solid week of gains for the stock itself. .

Our contracts of interest are the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls. So far, we’ve seen significant upward movement in the $10’s and $12.50’s, and if current trends continue, we expect the $15’s to join the party soon enough.

Here are the total possible gains from our ideas so far:

$10 Calls – Range: 1.50-2.20 – Max Gain: 47%
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%

The stock is still incredibly oversold and undervalued, so we’d be very surprised if we didn’t see more of its massive topside gap filled in the days and weeks ahead. Stay tuned for further updates on this one.


McDonalds Corp. MCD – Update 

MdDonalds is another chain in which we recently put some longer-term contracts on watch. On Thursday of last week, we highlighted the MCD 01/17 $195-220 Calls 
and those have started to gain some ground as well, despite a choppy week for stocks in general.

Here are the moves we’ve observed in these plays over the past trading week:

$195 Calls – Range: 
3.65-4.80 – Max Gain: 32%
$200 Calls – Range: 1.97-2.71 – Max Gain: 38%
$210 Calls – Range: .47-.69 – Max Gain: 47%
$220 Calls – Range: .12-.22 – Max Gain: 83%

Huge Options Success

Yesterday morning, we offered up a couple of fresh options ideas for our readers, and thanks to another solid day for the markets, along with the earnings-fueled activity of each of these plays, we were able to see gains of an immense nature on the day.

Our ideas were the ROK Weekly $195-200 Calls and the DXC Weekly $30-32 Calls. Regardless of which chain or strike point our readers latched onto, there were impressive multi-bag profit opportunities on the table, which were as follows:

ROK Weekly $195-200 Calls
$195 Calls – Range: 4.50-11.79 – Max Gain: 162%
$200 Calls – Range: 1.96-8.00 – Max Gain: 308%

DXC Weekly $30-32 Calls
$30 Calls – Range: 1.50-5.19 – Max Gain: 246%
$31 Calls – Range: 1.15-4.10 – Max Gain: 257%
$32 Calls – Range: .85-3.20 – Max Gain: 276%

LK Weekly $19-21 Calls


Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. APDN

We also want to briefly go over yesterday’s landmark performance by APDN, a stock we most recently mentioned on October 22nd. We did see a backslide following that alert, but APDN has more than made up for it with its incredible move.

Yesterday alone, the stock made a big enough move to register as the number one gainer on the NASDAQ as it ran from 5.57-19.69, an eye-popping 254% pop.

TNET Update & More

TriNet Group, Inc. TNET

In our premarket report on Halloween, we had identified a number of options ideas. One of the ones we put on a longer-term watch was TNET 12/20 $55 Calls, and it has been a really good idea so far.

TNET stock has been in a near-continual uptrend in the eight trading days since that report, and last week, we observed a number of Form-4’s (insider buying) being registered, which bodes well for the stock’s future performance.

In the meantime, we’ve seen a 113% move out of our highlighted contract set, from .80 to 1.70. That figure will continue to improve for as long as the stock maintains its impressive steady upward climb, with nearly six weeks until expiration.

Options Recaps, New Ideas

The Walt Disney Co. DIS – Options Review

On Friday morning, we closed out the week with a last minute options ideasignaling our interest in the DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls. Despite a turbulent open for stocks in general, we saw some really nice early opportunities from those ideas.

The total possible gains on those contracts were as follows: 

DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls
$139 Calls – Range: 
.61-1.48 – Max Gain: 143%
$140 Calls – Range: .38-.94 – Max Gain: 147%
$141 Calls – Range: .25-.54 – Max Gain: 116%
$142 Calls – Range: .12-.38 – Max Gain: 217%


AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Options Idea

We also took notice of ANAB this morning after the stock fell to new all-time lows yesterday. Just as a stock that shoots up a great deal in a short time must eventually come down to earth, one that tanks this hard is bound to recover some ground.

From current levels, a play on the stock itself could pan out favorably in a relatively short amount of time, but we will also designate some longer-term contracts in the options chain for an added idea. We’ll radar the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls for observation over the next several weeks.

Sun Kissed Industries, Inc. SKDI

We also highlighted SKDI as one to watch in yesterday morning’s premarket Extended Watchlist. The stock put up quite an intraday performance as it traded up from a low of .03, to a high of .16 on the day.

That works out to a single-session gain of 433% and serves as a perfect example of why we always try to include a daily Extended Watchlist, and why we will never quit speculating on the OTC entirely.
