On a Major Roll with Options Targets

Big Time Options Success: 

We went full bore on fresh options ideas for Friday morning’s premarket report, offering up what we felt were a set of good targets for five separate sets of contracts. One was a longer-term call in CVNA for March, which we’ll swing back around to in a later report, and the rest were quick strike plays, all of which produced huge intraday gain opportunities for ourselves and our readers.

Our areas of interest were the AMC Weekly $21-20 Puts, the WFC Weekly $55-56 Calls, the JPM Weekly $165-162.50 Puts, and the SPY 01/14 $462.50-461 Puts. The gains available on the day all ended up well into multibag territory. Here are the exact ranges and total possible profits that were available:

AMC Weekly $21-20 Puts
$21: .44-1.37 (+211%)
$20: .10-.53 (+430%)

Options Movers, Fresh Plays & More

Wednesday’s Solid Options Plays:

We’re back to our typical routine this morning, having provided our readers with a variety of post-earnings options ideas in yesterday morning’s premarket report. We simply go where we feel the opportunities will be the greatest, and the volatility following a quarterly report is the most dependable in terms of producing the kind of price action that lends itself to big intraday gains.

Our selection yesterday included the EXPI 08/20 $40-45 Calls, and the ATVI Weekly $82-85 Calls. EXPI made the most impressive move on the chart which led to some really impressive moves on the day. ATVI recorded respectable performances as well even if they didn’t quite keep pace with our hottest runner.

Here were the total positive moves and potential gains that were on the table:

Earnings Plays on the Move

Fidelity Intl. Information Services, Inc. FIS – Options Recap:

Our lone fresh options idea for the day in yesterday’s premarket report was in the FIS chain. The stock saw a mixed bag for the session as the company posted beats on earnings and revs in its Q2 report, while tempering guidance pulled in the other direction.

We still had some very nice intraday movement in our designated target, the FIS 09/17 $135 Calls. Those ran from 1.80 to 2.96, producing a respectable intraday upswing of 49% We feel rather certain that we will be returning to report more gains on this longer-term play, with over five weeks remaining until expiration. Stay locked in for future updates.


Catapult Solutions, Inc. CPSL:

We also wanted to provide a quick recap on CPSL, which has appeared in our watchlists a few times over the past week. We initially alerted it exactly a week ago today on the morning of July 28th.

We have now observed a very impressive move out of CPSL from a low of .0261 to yesterday’s high of .0648, which works out to a 148% run. Volume over the same period has been vastly greater than average.
