Aarons, Inc. AAN – Options
One item of interest that we’ve been waiting to touch upon is AAN. We’ve watched as the stock has taken quite a beating over the past few weeks, and are presently scanning for a bottom. After losing so much ground over so short a time period, when support is found, the recovery on AAN could end up allowing for some rapid profits in the options chain.
While we need to first observe a solid base of support before setting our short-term call strategy, there are already a pair of longer-term contracts that we’re going to put on watch. The November 22nd $29 and $30 Calls (trading yesterday at 3.20 and 2.05, respectively) could see significant rises in value once a reversal occurs on the chart.
RF Micro Devices, Inc. RFMD
We brought RFMD up as a topic of discussion this past Friday, mentioning that the spike catalyzed by the release of record revenues was likely to lead to a classic ‘dip-and-rip’ scenario. That keen instinct has thus far paid off, as the stock did indeed dip to 10.74 before rebounding as high as 11.79 (+10%), achieving higher lows each day over the past four sessions.
As a result of the trend, we’re going to have our eyes on the September $12 Calls, which closed at .70 yesterday.
FTE Networks, Inc. FTNW
FTNW hit our news scanner this morning and will be a stock that we monitor as the trading session opens today. The PR alludes to some lucrative contracts, so we’ll be interested to see how it reacts to such significant press.
