Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Playing the SPY

Friday Options Review

Coty, Inc. COTY- Among our fresh options ideas in Friday morning’s report was a range of contracts in the COTY chain, and from that, came the opportunity for ourselves and our readers to log some very impressive daily profits.

Our targets were the Coty, Inv. COTY Weekly $8-9 Calls, and all three of those contract sets produced multi-bag intraday days for us.

$8 Calls – Range: .56-1.35 – Max Gain: 141%
$8.50 Calls – Range: .22-.83 – Max Gain: 277%
$9 Calls – Range: .05-.34 – Max Gain: 580%

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $270.50-269 Puts

We were also entertaining a range of Puts in the SPY chain, as it appeared the markets wanted to begin the session in bearish fashion. That certainly proved to be the case, as the first half of the session saw a significant backslide prior to a late afternoon recovery to finish the day flat.

That activity allowed for a good showing from three of the four contracts in our highlighted range, the SPY Weekly $270.50-269 Puts. While the potential windfalls weren’t as extreme as the aforementioned play, they still each recorded a multi-bag move on the day.

$270 Calls
 – Range: 1.00-2.20 – Max Gain: 120%
$269.50 Calls – Range: .71-1.70 – Max Gain: 139%
$269 Calls – Range: .49-1.35 – Max Gain: 176%

Fresh Idea:
Now that we’re seeing a bit of a bounceback which figures to lead to a higher open this morning, we’ll go ahead and shift our early focus today on the SPY 02/11 $271-272 Calls. These expire today, and therefore must be treated like a weekly option on a Friday. It’s a risky proposition. Expert level traders only!
