Double-Bag Options Winners

Big End to the Week: 

Options trading can become more difficult during a period exhibiting a dearth of earnings reports, as we have seen in recent weeks. However, yesterday we managed to offer up a four-pack of options ideas, and all four returned some serious intraday gain opportunities for traders.

We saw multibag gains in each and every one of the targets put forth in yesterday morning’s premarket report:

 HELE 07/17 $210-220 Calls
$210: 1.25-3.28 (+162%)
$220: .30-1.25 (+317%)

WBA Weekly $42-40.50 Puts.
$42: 1.90-3.94 (+107%)
$41.50: 1.55-3.47 (+124%)
$41: .83-3.00 (+261%)
$40.50: .88-2.56 (+191%)

BABA Weekly $260-270 Calls

$56: 1.35-3.19 (+136%)
$57: 1.15-2.50 (+117%)

Kronos Advanced Technology, Inc. KNOS

We also have found some sanctuary from the deleterious effects of the coronavirus through our old mainstay, OTC-traded stocks. Last month we updated readers on our April 20th call of KNOS, which had seen lows of .011 subsequent to that report.

Just under three months after our initial alert on this play, we have witnessed a high of .17, for an overall gain of 1445% Even if readers had only caught our recent June 4th update, it would have enabled the chance at some serious gains. The low following that report was .043 which, to .17, works out to an increase of 295%

4-Pack of Options Ideas

NIO, Inc. NIO 

We tagged NIO for obserrvation to start the week on Monday, and it did end up making a notable run following that report. We saw a low of 10.70, and yesterday it hit a high of 15.28. That marks a three-session swing of 43% which we would consider decent volatility for a $10+ stock.

NIO did taper back into the close, but we will continue to monitor its activity. If it can continue to register higher lows, we won’t yet consider its run finished.

Fresh Options Ideas: 

We were in an earnings dry spell for a few weeks there, but slowly we’re beginning to see more big names coming across the calendar. This morning for earnings ideas we’ve got our sights set on a bullish and one bearish target. 

On Helen of Troy Ltd. HELE, which posted a solid beat, we’re going to focus on the HELE 07/17 $210-220 Calls.

Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. WBA didn’t fare as well in the last quarter as was expected of it, and we’re feeling like a short in this case might be the way to go, so we’ll tag the WBA Weekly $42-40.50 Puts.

Even More New Ideas:
BABA Weekly $260-270 Calls
NKLA Weekly $54-57 Calls

BJ Recap, Fresh Options Ideas

BJ’s Wholesale Club Holdings Inc. BJ – Recap

As usual, we put out some fresh options ideas in yesterday mornings report, and despite a poor showing for the markets in general, we did see some instant success with our one-contract target in the BJ’s chain.

We had highlighted the BJ 06/19 $30 Calls for observation and the stock provided us with a great opportunity for huge gains with its own move from from 30.39 to 35.45 (+17%). The $30 Calls ran from 1.50-5.60, for an enormous intraday rip of 273%

We will also roll up to include the 06/19 $40 Calls on our watchlist heading into the long weekend, as the momentum from yesterday’s big move could certainly spill over.

Fresh Options Ideas*:
DE Weekly $145-148 Calls
PANW Weekly $235-245 Calls
BABA Weekly $205-207.50 Calls
