WD-40 Company WDFC – Options Update:  

As we close out this holiday-shortened week, we’ll start off by giving an update on the options idea we put forth in yesterday morning’s premarket report. We were looking at the WDFC 07/16 $250-270 Calls on the heels of the company’s earnings drop from the day prior.

The stock itself ran to nearly $280 before tapering back and that provided some very nice intraday gain opportunities for anyone who had caught our alert. Here are the intraday trading ranges and total possible gains on those targets:

WDFC 07/16 $250-270 Calls
$250: 20.32-26.15 (+29%)
$260: 7.81-16.67 (+113%)
$270: 4.31-8.18 (+90%)

Carver Bancorp Inc. CARV – Recap:

Additionally, we want to go over the performance of CARV following its inclusion in yesterday’s extended watchlist. A short-squeeze provided an excellent intraday move for a stock in this price range.

CARV ran from 16.61 to a new high of 38.87 on the day marking an upswing of 134% on volume of over 82X the 30-day moving average!

Elray Resources, Inc. ELRA – OTC Recap:

We caught sight of ELRA midway through last week, and noticed that the stock had been experiencing a marked rise in volume and liquidity. As a result, we placed it on our daily watchlists in our premarket reports Thursday and Friday morning.

ELRA continued to build on its momentum, recording a considerable two session run from our vantage point. From Thursday’s low of .0023, it reached .0049 on Friday, which represents a 113% increase. With the ongoing momentum buildup it has exhibited over the past several sessions, we’ll want to keep an eye on it as we kick off a new trading week.

Friday’s Options Runners:

On Friday morning, we reported the gains in our PYPL options idea from Thursday’s report, the PYPL Weekly $255-260 Calls. We mentioned that we expected to see even more gains added to those figures based on its premarket activity, and that assumption proved accurate.

Blue Sphere Corp. BLSP – We also had BLSP jump off of yesterday’s extended watchlist and make a considerable move. Our watchlists are typically where you can find our more speculative interests such as OTC plays. In this case the stock bore a Caveat Emptor designation which is typically something to steer clear of, but our decision to include it in our report was good one.

We saw a sizable intraday run from a low of .0028 to a high of .006, which marks a very respectable move of 114%
