ANAB Options Heating Up

AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Update

Today we want to come back to update on the progress of a longer-term options idea we formulated a couple of weeks ago on the 11th. We mentioned that we were interested in tracking the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls, and it has turned out to be an excellent idea.

The stock itself has continually ramped its way up , filling some of the topside gap on the chart, trading from a low of 10.08 on the morning of our initial alert, to a new high of 13.33 yesterday. That’s an increase of 32% on the stock alone, with the observed gains in our highlighted options making much more significant moves:

$10 CallsRange: 1.50-3.20 – Max Gain: 113%
$12.50 Calls – Range: .50-1.50 – Max Gain: 200%
$15 Calls – Range: .23-.55  – Max Gain: 139%

As you can see on the following chart snapshot, indicators are strongly suggesting that ANAB should continue to make progress in filling the immense gap.

Ebix, Inc. EBIX – Form-4 Alert

We caught a Form-4 insider buying alert on EBIX this morning. That’s when we noticed the prime bottom positioning of the chart, complete with a significant gap to the topside. This will be a perfect candidate to identify some longer-term options plays we have interest in tracking.

We’ll be looking at the EBIX 03/20 $30-40 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.

AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Update

We want to backtrack to the options idea we offered up to our readers on Monday morning. We focused on longer-term targets, but the results have already begun to show after what has been a solid week of gains for the stock itself. .

Our contracts of interest are the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls. So far, we’ve seen significant upward movement in the $10’s and $12.50’s, and if current trends continue, we expect the $15’s to join the party soon enough.

Here are the total possible gains from our ideas so far:

$10 Calls – Range: 1.50-2.20 – Max Gain: 47%
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%

The stock is still incredibly oversold and undervalued, so we’d be very surprised if we didn’t see more of its massive topside gap filled in the days and weeks ahead. Stay tuned for further updates on this one.


McDonalds Corp. MCD – Update 

MdDonalds is another chain in which we recently put some longer-term contracts on watch. On Thursday of last week, we highlighted the MCD 01/17 $195-220 Calls 
and those have started to gain some ground as well, despite a choppy week for stocks in general.

Here are the moves we’ve observed in these plays over the past trading week:

$195 Calls – Range: 
3.65-4.80 – Max Gain: 32%
$200 Calls – Range: 1.97-2.71 – Max Gain: 38%
$210 Calls – Range: .47-.69 – Max Gain: 47%
$220 Calls – Range: .12-.22 – Max Gain: 83%

Options Recaps, New Ideas

The Walt Disney Co. DIS – Options Review

On Friday morning, we closed out the week with a last minute options ideasignaling our interest in the DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls. Despite a turbulent open for stocks in general, we saw some really nice early opportunities from those ideas.

The total possible gains on those contracts were as follows: 

DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls
$139 Calls – Range: 
.61-1.48 – Max Gain: 143%
$140 Calls – Range: .38-.94 – Max Gain: 147%
$141 Calls – Range: .25-.54 – Max Gain: 116%
$142 Calls – Range: .12-.38 – Max Gain: 217%


AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Options Idea

We also took notice of ANAB this morning after the stock fell to new all-time lows yesterday. Just as a stock that shoots up a great deal in a short time must eventually come down to earth, one that tanks this hard is bound to recover some ground.

From current levels, a play on the stock itself could pan out favorably in a relatively short amount of time, but we will also designate some longer-term contracts in the options chain for an added idea. We’ll radar the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls for observation over the next several weeks.
