The $115 Calls saw their low at 1.58, and at the peak of yesterday’s session were trading for as much as 4.20. That marks a two-day jump of 166%

At the high end of our initial range of interest were the $117 Calls, which hit an early low of .45 yesterday, and subsequently touched a high of 2.35, registering as a single session move of 422% All in all, there was really no way to go wrong with our AAPL Calls this week following a big earnings beat by the tech giant.

Speaking of exceeded expectations on earnings, AMZN smashed its previous two-quarter trend of losses by posting Q4 profits of $214M on just over $29B in sales. As a result, the stock spiked significantly, and continues to do so in this morning’s premarket. To take advantage of the resultant price action as we did with AAPL, we’ll be outlining some options ideas for AMZN as well.
