iBio, Inc. IBIO

We have identified an attractive chart setup on IBIO, a stock we have had some experience with in the past.

Coming off of a recent bottom, there’s a good amount of room for the stock to run, so we’re going to place it on watch as a possible longer-term recovery play.

New Options Ideas

FireEye, Inc. FEYE – Options Ideas

The first earnings play to catch our eye this morning is based off of the beat just posted by FEYE during aftermarket hours yesterday. The company’s earnings rose to a record high, and its Q2 revenues also registered as an all time quarterly high.

As a result, FEYE is looking attractive to us on a short and longer term basis. Accordingly, we are going to begin tracking a couple of different sets of ideas for the FEYE chain, the FEYE Weekly $14-15 Calls & 08/14 $15.50-16 Calls
