Shoe Carnival, Inc. SCVL- Fresh for yesterday morning’s premarket report was an idea for the Shoe Carnival options chain, in response to the company’s post-market earnings beat from Tuesday afternoon. We cited the SCVL 04/18 $35-40 Calls as being most attractive to us, and we met with some solid success on day one.
With the help of a move out of the stock from 35.00-37.72, we saw significant movement from each of our designated strike prices. The $35 Calls saw a low of 1.56 and reached a high of 3.50, which represents a max gain possibility of 124% while the $40s impressively ran 233% from .30-1.00.
A strong close for SCVL indicates a very plausible chance at seeing even more gains in the near-term, so we’ll continue to track the activity here.
Centene Corp. CNC – Along with the SCVL idea, we also floated a longer-term one for CNC that produced instantaneous results. We had targeted the CNC 09/20 $50-55 Calls and despite such a lengthy period remaining until expiration, we saw some excellent volatility there in just a single session.
The $50 Calls traded up from 1.80 to 3.50, a gain of 94% while the $55 Calls ripped a big gain from .31-1.05, which works out to an intraday pop of 239%
Lululemon Athletica LULU
We also want to issue a fresh idea for LULU this morning after the company’s own post-market quarterly financials drop, which included a big earnings beat and some enticing guidance for the remainder of the year. The stock is surging to all-time highs in the premarket, and we don’t want to get caught sitting on our hands when the lid blows.
We’re going to radar the LULU Weekly $162.50-170 Calls, which could end up seeing some serious gain activity over the next session or two.
FIVE Weekly $125-127 Calls
