eXp World Holdings Inc. EXPI – Options Review:

Yesterday morning, we highlighted the performance of our options ideas in EXPI that we had initially targeted on Wednesday, the EXPI 03/19 $50-52.50 Calls. After posting double-bag moves, we mentioned that we expected the bullish activity to continue, based on the stock’s behavior in the premarket.

In addition to the EXPI 03/19 $50-52.50 Calls from last week, we extended our target range by rolling up to include the EXPI 03/19 $55 Calls. Not only did the updated strike instantly yield double-bag gains on the day, but our preexisting targets tacked on some stellar new highs which has extended our observed trading range by a considerable amount.

The following numbers are the total swings made by the $50-52.50’s since last week, and the single-session surge recorded yesterday by the $55’s:

EXPI 03/19 $50-55 Calls
$50:  2.16-8.20 (+280%)
$52.50: 1.45-6.10 (+321%)
$55:  2.10-4.60 (+119%)

XL Fleet Corp. XL – Recap:

It was also this past Wednesday morning that we flagged some longer-term contracts in the XL options chain, with the XL 05/21 $12.50-15 Calls. Despite just a few sessions passing since then, this bottom bouncing stock has continued to add modest gains daily.

We already have seen some notable moves in those plays with more than two month remaining until expiration. We’ll be interested to see where they go from here in the event of continued northward movement in XL. Here are the gains we’ve tracked so far:

XL 05/21 $12.50-15 Calls
$50:  2.45-3.50 (+43%)
$52.50: 2.00-3.00 (+50%)
$55:  1.70-2.64 (+55%)

All the action took place early on in the session, well prior to the markets dipping into the close. Here were the total possible gains on the table as they made their rapid morning runs:

Saddle Ranch Media, Inc. SRMX

From yesterday morning‘s extended watchlist, we saw SRMX put forth a pleasing intraday surge. The stock was trading for as little as .0046 in the very early goings, and raced quickly to a daily high of .0093. That worked out to a run of 102%

Volume has been picking up, and this is a stock that we saw pop to nearly .02 just last month. We’ll certainly want to continue to watch its activity for the possibility of another push.

Nano Labs Corp. CTLE – Recap

At the top of our to-do list this morning is going to be CTLE, which we tagged for observation in yesterday morning’s premarket report. We include these Extended Watchlist plays nearly every day, and it’s always a good idea to add them to a watchlist on your own screens, as they often turn up hidden gems like this one.

CTLE recorded a low of .0044 before pushing up to a high of .0095, which represents an intraday rip of 116% The stock posted this performance on its largest single day trading volume in well over five years, with over a billion shares changing hands! With activity on this level, we’ll certainly want to continue to follow the CTLE chart as we head through midweek. Inc. EBIX – Bottom Bouncer

We took notice of EBIX this morning on a routine scan, and discovered a very attractive bottom setup on the chart. As you can see on the included snapshot below, the stock fell off a cliff last month and has spent the past week establishing a new bottom.

This is exactly the type of setup we look for in a potential recovery play, with a base of support along with a massive topside gap on the chart. We’re going to add a longer-term options idea that would allow us to take advantage of any impending rebounds. We’re going to radar the EBIX 06/18 $40-45 Calls.
