Options Review

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – AAPL beat on earnings as well as kicking off sales on the iPhone X, and two out of three of the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* we signaled for possible daytrades ended up recording some nice moves on the day.

Our first order of business to kick off the fresh week is to recap those moves followed by another set of winners we chose on Friday.

The AAPL $170 Calls ran from 1.63-3.82 for potential gains of up to 135%, while the , $172.50s made an even nicer move from .31 to 1.36 for an intraday rip of 339%

Arista Networks, Inc. ANET  - The set of ideas we formulated for ANET on Friday were the 11/17 $195-210 Calls, and all three sets of contracts in that range provided traders with the chance at multi-bag intraday gains.

$195 Calls – Range: 3.15-9.30 – Max Gain: 195%
$200 Calls – Range: 2.40-5.80 – Max Gain: 142%
$210 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.11 – Max Gain: 111%

Fresh Idea:

For a new potential play, we’re looking at Pandora Media, Inc. P which took a gut punch on Friday, falling to its lowest prices since early this summer. The last time the stock was this oversold, it followed it up with a run from 6.75 to to 10.00.

We’re going to go out a couple of months on the expiration and track the  P 01/19 $6 and $7 Calls so we have plenty of time to see Pandora make the rebound we’re after.


Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. KERX

We’re going to put KERX on watch after noticing multiple ripe indicators this morning. The stock bounced of a recent bottom and close with strength at the 200DMA on Friday. With the MACD gearing up for a bullish cross and the RSI just about to crack the 50-line, we’ll be interested to track the activity in KERX in coming sessions.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Idea

At the end of last week, we signaled some calls in AAPL, one of which ran over 3500% on Friday. Following the company’s earnings beat this week, we’ve got another set of options ideas to track as AAPL has streaked to new annual highs.

With its premarket peak coming in at the $175-range, we’re going to want to monitor the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* for potential daytrades.

In addition to a healthy earnings beat, Apple the iPhoneX is going on sale. These are just the types of conditions that could allow it to continue to streak into blue skies.

*Please note that trading weekly options on a Friday is incredibly risky, and should only ever be attempted by expert traders with disposable funds. If that doesn’t describe you, stay away!  


Arista Networks, Inc. ANET

We would also like to look at ANET this morning, which took a gut punch during yesterday’s session. The sharp decline cause the PPS to fall below the channel of a continuous uptrend that had, until yesterday had persisted for most of the past year.

On the chance that it was just a momentary setback, we’re going to highlight some options contracts here as well that could work quite nicely if ANET can recover. We’ll have our eye on the ANET 11/17 $195-210 Calls.

We’ve listed the overall moves below, in addition to the intraday gains that were available on Friday alone.

$18 Calls – Overall Range: 1.00-3.95 – 2-Day Gain: 295% – Friday Intraday: 76%

Friday’s fresh options ideas also both worked like a charm, bringing a fitting end to what was an amazing week for our options trading ideas across the board:

The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. BONT

We tagged BONT on Thursday morning, at which time we observed a low of .68 in the stock. After a solid first session, we reiterated the tag in Friday’s report and the stock came out of the starting gate like a bolt. It traded all the way up to 1.15 before tapering back, but not before completing a two-day swing of 69% for us.

The stock’s presently hovering around a dollar, so we’ll be watching as the new trading week kicks off this morning to see if BONT can manage to string together a third session of higher highs and higher lows.

Twitter, Inc. TWTR

Twitter posted its quarterly figures showing the company was nearing profitability, so we took the opportunity to signal a range of options, and what followed was Twitter’s biggest bullish session since last year, and some great chances for gains in our designated contracts, the TWTR Weekly $18-19.50 Calls.

$18 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.60 – Max Gain: 160%
$18.50 Calls – Range: .64-2.02 – Max Gain: 216%

Fresh Ideas:

Microsoft Corp. MSFT Weekly $82-85 Calls*

Apple Inc. AAPL Weekly $157.50-160 Calls*

*Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s just about as risky as it gets.


ITUS Corp. ITUS

We’ve been tracking ITUS since September 21st, subsequent to which point we witnessed a really great move in the stock from 1.92-5.15 for gains of up to 168% over just a few sessions.

In the past few weeks ITUS has been under consolidation, but yesterday the stock came down and kissed the 50DMA before bouncing. It’s gapping up this morning in the premarket, so we’ll want to watch closely for it to hold the 200DMA of 2.19 on any pullbacks. If it can manage that, we like the chances of seeing what could be more sizable moves for the stock in coming sessions.

Fresh Options Ideas


While we’re on roll with options calls, we might as well let it ride by selecting a couple of other ideas that are worth monitoring.

Tiffany & Co. TIF - Tiffany’s chart is showing a decent bottom setup, while some insider buying was reported this week near 4-month lows. We’re going to highlight the TIF 10/20 $92-93 Calls and keep them on our radars in the days and weeks ahead.

Blackberry Ltd. BBRY - For a more short-term idea, we’re going to signal the BBRY Weekly $9.50 & $10 Calls on the heels of Blackberry’s premarket earning beat. Prior to today, the stock has hovering around a solid level of support at roughly $9 for quite some time, but today’s release could definitely have a positive effect on the chart. The company posted a beat on profits and revenue, while software sales set company records.
