Massive Monday Movers, 4 Fresh Targets

Big Time Movers on Monday:

We kicked off the week with some really exciting action yesterday, after signaling options ideas for two of the hottest plays of the day in GameStop and AMC in our premarket report. We saw the effects of a massive short squeeze take the top off these plays, and produce thousand-percent-plus gainers for our watchlist. We flagged ideas in four chains, and saw gains from all four, but in the case of AON, one of our two contract sets failed to move in a positive direction. So while we are disappointed to technically see our two week perfect streak end, it was nice that it came along with some of the biggest moves we’ve seen this year.

Our targets for the day were the GME Weekly $22.50-24 Calls, the AMC Weekly $3.00-3.50 Calls, the BABA Weekly $81-83 Calls, and the AON Weekly $290-300 Calls, and here were the fantastic figures they put up on the session. If the start of the week is any indicator, we’re in for a wild ride. In terms of GME and AMC, we expect to see our observed ranges on those increase significantly once again today, and we’ll also roll up to include even more contract sets in our designated range.

GME Weekly $22.50-24 Calls
 .93-14.25 (+1432%)
$23: .81-15.80 (+1851%)
$24: .79-15.50 (+1862%)

AMC Weekly $3.00-3.50 Calls
 .19-2.94 (+1447%)
$3.50: .10-2.42 (+2320%)

BABA Weekly $81-83 Calls
 2.27-5.15 (+127%)
$82: 1.93-4.50 (+133%)
$83: 1.61-3.90 (+142%)

AON Weekly $290-300 Calls

Friday’s Major Runners, 4 Fresh Targets

Friday’s Big Movers:

We were pleased to be able to wrap up the trading week on Friday with a strong slate of options movers. There were no duds among the four potential plays we included with our premarket report, and only one set of individual contracts out of the whole lot of ten fell short of multi-bag status. All in all it was a great session.

Our targets for Friday were the NKE Weekly $97-95 Puts, the FDX Weekly $292.50-297.50 Calls, the LULU Weekly $420-415 Puts, and the TSLA Weekly $170-167.50 Puts. The excellent numbers they recorded on the day were as follows:

NKE Weekly $97-95 Puts
: 1.98-2.95 (+49%)
$96: 1.00-2.78 (+178%)
$95: .28-1.80 (+543%)

FDX Weekly $292.50-297.50 Calls
: .40-1.82 (+355%)
$295: .20-1.14 (+470%)
$297.50: .15-.68 (+353%)

LULU Weekly $420-415 Puts
: 9.25-33.80 (+265%)
$415: 6.10-27.95 (+358%)

TSLA Weekly $170-167.50 Puts

BIG Options Update & More

Big Lots, Inc. BIG – Update
On Friday morning, we signaled some June calls in the Big Lots chain as the company dropped a beat on its quarterly earnings and revenues. Our targets were the BIG 06/19 $40-45 Calls, which also got some help from an afternoon push for the markets in general.

Of those three targets in our selected range, all three achieved multi-bag gain status for the session. Here are the single-session moves those contracts posted on the day:

BIG 06/19 $40-45 Calls
$40: 1.00-2.30 (+130%)
$42.50: .60-1.25 (+108%)
$45: .25-.75 (+200%)

Avantor, Inc. AVTR 

We also caught AVTR off of this morning’s premarket earnings calendar, and are seeing a very interesting dynamic. Even as insiders dumped close to a billion dollars worth of AVTR stock last week, we have reason to believe that going bullish here could still be the right move.

The chart has been an absolute screamer for months on end, and 14 out of the 20 analysts to assess its current condition rate the stock a strong buy. We’re going to go ahead and signal interest in tracking the AVTR 08/21 $20-22.50 Calls.
