CarMax, Inc. KMX
First up this morning, we’re going to start off the fresh trading week by reviewing the performance of the CarMax options we signaled in Friday’s premarket report on the heels of the company’s Q2 earnings beat.
We’re constantly pounding the table on post-earning options trading, simply because we are so very often successful in our selections. Volatility is a swing trader’s best friend, and few things create it more quickly and effectively than a solid beat on earnings.
So we signaled our interest in tracking the KMX Weekly $69.50-71.50 Calls and it worked like a charm:
$69.50 Calls - Range: 1.21-4.96 – Max Gain: 310%
$70 Calls – Range: 1.10-4.40 – Max Gain: 300%
$70.50 Calls – Range: .55-3.78 – Max Gain: 587%
$71 Calls – Range: .35-3.50 – Max Gain: 900%
$71.50 Calls – Range: .30-2.41 – Max Gain: 703%
Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY
We just updated our readers on our coverage of HMNY last Wednesday, when we pointed out that we slated the stock for tracking on August 15th and observed a subsequent low of 2.42. By midweek the stock had already made a considerable move up, but Friday’s session brought another big pop to new highs.
HMNY traded in a daily range from 5.67 to 7.95 gaining 40%, a very respectable intraday move in and of itself. The new high marked an overall move of 229% from our observed low.
Volume was much higher than average all last week, and the stock maintain roughly half of its daily advance into a fairly strong close, so we’ll need to keep monitoring HMNY for the continued establishment of higher highs and higher lows.
