Apple, Inc. AAPL
Our more seasoned readers will remember a time when we almost exclusively talked about microcaps trading on the OTC, but a few years ago, we decided to go to where the real money was, and have since focused primarily on quick-strike options trading opportunities. It was with AAPL that we got our sea legs in options trading, and it has been a heck of a ride since.
We’re coming back to AAPL once again to use the spike in trading activity associated with the company’s Q3 earnings beat to try to score some nice gains. The stock is gapping up into blue skies here in the premarket after rising to record high valuation, just a stone’s throw from a TRILLION dollar market cap!
We’re going to be monitoring the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls to try to score some nice chances this midweek.
SodaStream International, Inc. SODA
Speaking of earnings beats, SodaStream just reported on its Q2 figures, and is shining in the premarket on the heels of a strong showing and boosted guidance for the future.
We’ll look to take advantage of this situation as well, by earmarking the SODA Weekly $99-105 Calls for observation this morning.
Whirlpool Corp WHR
On Friday, we selected a range of options in the Whirlpool chain, the 08/03 $129-131 Calls, and we wanted to swing back around this morning in order to go over the success we had with those plays.
In just a few days time, each set of contracts has made considerable multi-bag moves, which have been as follows:
$129 Calls – Range: .96-2.05 – Max Gain: 114%
$130 Calls – Range: .68-2.20 – Max Gain: 224%
$131 Calls – Range: .55-1.27 – Max Gain: 131%
Judging by the activity thus far, we’re going to want to continue to stay on top of these calls for the remainder of the week.
