Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR
PBR had another solid day yesterday, dipping below $15 only briefly where it found support at 14.88 before going on to push its upper limits over the course of the session, acvhieving a new high for us at 15.34.
All of the options contracts that we’ve been monitoring on PBR served up chances to gain a significant amount as the stock continued to bull its way north.
Even our longer-term idea, the 07/19 $15 Calls we’ve been tracking since last week from a low of .25 has already given us the triple-bagger we suggested it might in last Wednesday’s report. They closed out the day at .88, an overall move of 252% and it would appear they want to gap up along with PBR stock this morning, so we expect that figure to increase even further.
PBR has come a long way since we caught it coming off of 10-year lows back on March 21st. The stock itself has regained a lot of ground, coming from our observed low of 11.25 all the way up to current levels above $15. As we stated yesterday, if PBR has a tough time breaking through resistance at its previous swing high of 15.85, we’ll start to think about taking profits off of the table.
