Aytu Bioscience, Inc. AYTU
We’re always on the lookout for a bargain, and we may have a prime bottom play opportunity in AYTU in the near future. The stock has been on the downtrend for a couple of months, and is presently very heavily oversold.
We’re going to put this play on our radar and watch carefully for a bottom-bounce which appears to be imminent. Gaining back even half of the ground its recently lost would mean more than a dounble from the current PPS.
SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)
We’re also looking at the SPY today after a lackluster finish to last week. Market sentiment still appears to be bearish as we ready ourselves to kick off this fresh trading week.
We are going to be tracking a set of bearish options, particularly the SPY 10/08 $288.50-$287.50 Puts. Keep in mind that these expire at the end of the day, thus should be treated as weekly options on a Friday. Only expert traders with disposable income should attempt these kinds of trades.

CSX Corp. CSX – Update
On Wednesday morning following CSX’s solid quarterly earnings report, we selected the CSX Weekly $65-67.50 Calls for observation, and scored the opportunity at multi-bag gains that day, as we relayed in yesterday’s premarket report.
What followed was a dip-and-rip out of CSX, and even more chances for double-bag to multibag gains for the second consecutive session. Here are the intraday profits that could have been achieved yesterday:
$65 Calls– Range: 1.91-4.50 – Max Gain: 136%
$65.50 Calls – Range: 1.84-3.85 – Max Gain: 109%

Ebay, Inc. EBAY – Options Recap
Speaking of single-day multibag gains, also included in yesterday’s report was a fresh idea for the EBAY options chain. We went bearish after the company disappointed on Q2 revs, signaling our interest in the EBAY Weekly $36-34.50 Puts and we were dead-on with that idea as well.
The following fantastic gains were on the table:
$36 Puts – Range: .71-2.08 – Max Gain: 193%
$35.50 Puts – Range: .42-1.46 – Max Gain: 248%
$35 Puts – Range: .20-1.10 – Max Gain: 450%
