Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – Review
On Friday morning, apart from recapping the amazing options idea we proffered in last week’s reports, we formulated one final fresh idea for the week. That was the BABA Weekly $165-162.50 Puts, and the performance there did not disappoint.
We sussed out multibag options gainers all week long, and this short on BABA was a solid way to cap it all off. The $165 Puts ran from a low of .78 and reached 2.26, for an intraday gain of 190% The $162.50’s also fared quite well, running from 1.84-4.36, which represents a 137% rip.

Aytu Bioscience Inc. AYTU
Our attention is being drawn back to AYTU this morning, a stock that we placed on watch at the end of March. From the low of 1.55 we observed on the morning of our initial report on the 27th, AYTU had been gradually stair-stepping its way up the chart, reaching a high of 2.47 just last week (+59%).
This morning in the premarket, AYTU reached a brand new high of 2.90, marking an increase of 87% over our initially observed low, and leaving us anxious to see how the activity unfolds from here.
Amplitech Group, Inc. AMPG – Update
We also want to provide another quick update on AMPG, which printed new highs yet again yesterday for the second consecutive session. The stock hit .065, which marks a 51% rise over the .043 low we witnessed at the beginning of last month, when we released our first Special Report on AMPG.
A lot has happened in that span, which you can learn more about by exploring the links in the update we provided on AMPG in yesterday’s premarket report. We would not be at all surprised to see AMPG continue to add to the gains we’ve seen thus far.
FRESH OPTIONS IDEA:
Friday was a fantastic day for the markets, and yesterday was quite poor by comparison. Today it appears as if the see-saw may continue with another bullish session, so we’re going to place the SPY 05/15 $281-282.50 Calls on watch to coincide with our current market sentiments.

Moleculin Biotech, Inc. MBRX – Recap
Following the FDA fast-tracking of the company’s Annamycin drug, yesterday morning we noted that this stock we began tracking late last month had risen by 89% (.7772-1.47) right on the heels of the good news. It would appear that the development took some time to fully filter through the investment community, because even we weren’t prepared for the enormous continuation of momentum that has now transpired.
From yesterday’s 1.25 low-of-day, MBRX shot up like a rocket and ultimately reached a new peak of 3.15. That worked out to a single session surge of 152% From our initially observed low, it represents an increase of 305% in just over three weeks of trading. This has not turned out to be our biggest stock-only call of the year so far just yet, but it is right up there among the best.
