We had put a couple of options ideas in place as we closed out the trading week on Friday, and found success across the board.
Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN – It took the better part of the entire morning on Friday for things to heat up for our AMZN puts, but once they did, it sent our highlighted options contracts on one heck of a ride. Those were the AMZN Weekly $780-772.50 Puts and they allowed for profits both approaching and exceeding ten-bagger territory!
Between roughly noon and 3PM, we saw an significant move to the downside which facilitated the following enormous gains:
$780 Puts – Range: .46-4.80 – Max Gain: 943%
$777.50 Puts – Range: .28-3.32 – Max Gain: 1085%
$775 Puts – Range: .14-1.80 – Max Gain: 1185%
$772.50 Calls – Range: .08-1.03 – Max Gain: 1187%
Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd RCL – The contracts we chose for the RCL chain were the RCL 11/18 $67.50-72.50 Calls. These are extended term contracts with plenty of time left until expiration, which explains why the premiums were so high, and the moves were of a lesser magnitude than AMZN. Still, for a first day, we did see some notable gain opportunities, including a double-bagger:
$67.50 Calls – Range: 5.30-7.80 – Max Gain: 47%
$70 Calls – Range: 3.30-5.80 – Max Gain: 76%
$72.50 Calls – Range: 1.70-3.85 – Max Gain: 126%
Axion Power International, Inc. AXPW
We want to circle back to this old familiar play, which up until the past couple of weeks, had been on a continuous downslide for quite some time. Due to a number of factors, we’ll be interested in tracking the stock’s progress off of its recently registered annual lows.
On Friday, the stock made a nice move and temporarily cracked the 50DMA at .0131, which will be the key area of resistance of which we’ll be watching for a sustained break. As you can see on the chart below, the stock recently woke up off of being heavily oversold for an extended period, and we’re going to want to track every step of its recovery.
