Tons of Fresh Trading Ideas

Facebook, Inc. FB – Recap

One of our fresh options trading ideas from yesterday morning’s premarket report was for the Facebook chain, on the heels of the company’s Q3 earnings and revenue beat.

We were tracking the FB Weekly $190-195 Calls, and all three of those contract sets produced opportunities for traders to get in and out with some very nice gains. Here are the figures on this successful daytrading idea:

$53 Calls – Range: 3.10-5.52 – Max Gain: 78%
$53.50 Calls – Range: 1.75-3.45 – Max Gain: 97%
$54 Calls – Range: .87-1.87 – Max Gain: 115%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PEP Surges & More

PepsiCo, Inc. PEP

Pepsi had a solid across the board beat following its premarket earnings release yesterday, and we seized opportunity to include the  PEP Weekly $124-125 Calls in our morning report.

A five-dollar intraday run by the stock allowed for some very nice opportunities to profit in our pair of targets. The $124 Calls ran from .72-3.40 for a big 372% rip, while the $125’s traded from .32 to 2.45; a gain of 666%


Verb Technology, Inc. VERB

This stock is a newcomer to the NASDAQ, having only recently uplisted from the OTCQB, which has been the subject of a selloff over the past six weeks. That was kicked into another gear earlier this month when the company announced that its move to the NASDAQ would be accompanied by a $20M offering at roughly half the market price at the time.

Now that it has fallen well below the offering price, and indicators are suggesting a rebound may be in order, we are going to flag this play for observation in the days and weeks ahead.
