Facebook, Inc. FB – Recap
One of our fresh options trading ideas from yesterday morning’s premarket report was for the Facebook chain, on the heels of the company’s Q3 earnings and revenue beat.
We were tracking the FB Weekly $190-195 Calls, and all three of those contract sets produced opportunities for traders to get in and out with some very nice gains. Here are the figures on this successful daytrading idea:
$53 Calls – Range: 3.10-5.52 – Max Gain: 78%
$53.50 Calls – Range: 1.75-3.45 – Max Gain: 97%
$54 Calls – Range: .87-1.87 – Max Gain: 115%

Allergan plc AGN – Options Recap
After posting Q3 losses but still outpacing Wall Street’s expectations yesterday, was AGN. We noticed that, combined with the fact that the stock had just come off of a new 52-week low, and we pounced with a set of options ideas that all turned in incredible moves on the day.
It was the third time inside of the last week that one or more of our highlighted options contracts returned gains exceeded gains of a thousand percent in a single day! First it was Walgreens last Wednesday, followed by Walmart on Friday. Then yesterday, the AGN Weekly $175-180 Calls we signaled did it once again!
$175 Calls – Range: .1.25-12 – Max Gain: 895%
$177.50 Calls – Range: .78-10.80 – Max Gain: 1284%.
$180 Calls – Range: .53-8.54 – Max Gain: 1511%
A big pat on the back is in order for us, and huge cheers go out to any of our readers who were able to capitalize on our fantastic ideas!
Fresh Idea: Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA Weekly $187.50-195
Xunlei Ltd. XNET
We don’t want the fact that we’re providing mind-numbing gains via our options ideas to overshadow a great stock call we made on Monday of last week.
We signaled our interest in XNET, and on that morning the stock saw a low of 6.06, and hasn’t looked back since. Yesterday it ran all the way to a new high of 12.10, coming in just a hair under a double-bagger at 99% in a span of eight trading days.
