Excellent Options Plays & More

Moderna Inc. MRNA – Update: 

On Monday morning, we began tracking some August calls in the MRNA chain, the MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls. In yesterday’s report, we updated readers on the modest moves they made, and also issued an added idea in the MRNA Weekly $210-212.50 Calls, just to make things even more interesting.

Both sets of ideas have flourished as MRNA has posted two excellent daily performances in a row, rising from around $200 to more than $220. That has facilitated some highly respectable moves in every last one of our designated targets.

Here are the two-day ranges on the August calls and the intraday run recorded by the weeklies yesterday:

MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls
$195: 23.50-36.05 (+53%)
$200: 18.00-33.47 (+86%)
$210: 13.55-27.50 (+103%)

MRNA Weekly $210-212.50 Calls.
$210: 5.20-13.50 (+160%)
$212.50: 4.32-11.00 (+155%)

Korn Ferry KFY – Recap:

Also new in yesterday’s premarket offerings were our targets in the KFY options chain. We signaled interest in tracking the KFY Weekly $65-70 Calls, and are pleased to report that those contracts made monster moves on the day.

KFY Weekly $65-70 Calls
$65: 2.00-6.10 (+205%)
$70: .55-3.00 (+445%)

RAD Updates & More

Rite Aid Corp. RAD – Update.

We have been attacking the RAD options chain on a number of fronts, most recently being Friday morning, when we issued a couple of sets of ideas. Today we will focus on those expiring this Friday, which were the RAD 01/03 $21-23 Calls.

We’ll continue to monitor these plays throughout the rest of this holiday-split week, but for now, here were the ranges and total possible gains on those five sets of RAD contracts:

$21 Calls
: 2.00-4.90 (+145%)
$21.50 Calls: 1.07-2.51 (+135%)  
$22 Calls
: 1.50-2.46 (+64%)
$22.50 Calls: 1.18-2.10 (+83%)
$23 Calls: .78-2.01 (+158%)

We also signaled interest in a much longer term RAD idea on Friday morning, with the  RAD 04/17 $27-30 Calls, which we are not quite ready to report on just yet, but will continue to monitor into the New Year.

Fresh Options Idea:
Pampa Energia PAM 03/20 $22.50-25 Calls

Ocugen Inc. OCGN 

We also want to provide a brief update on another recent call we made, with OCGN. We tagged this one for observation as a bottom-play this past Friday morning, and already we’ve seen a pretty good swing to the upside.

The stock has traded in a range from 1.22-2.04 this week, marking a respectable  move of 67%  We’ll be interested to see if it can continue to register new highs for us in coming sessions.  

Sundial Growers, Inc. SNDL

We are seeing a very intriguing potential play on cannabis grower SNDL this morning. The recently-IPO’d stock has taken a bath in the two months following its first trades, having already been embroiled in a class-action suit. Yesterday the company showed that the claims of the lawsuit are essentially baseless, and the PPS began to recover.

We’re going to keep a close eye on the activity here in the days and weeks ahead, as the technicals of the chart are screaming upside potential at the present time. Not to put the cart before the horse, but we feel that a double from current pricing would not be out of the realm of realistic possibility.
