Massive Options Success & More

Big Moves in All 5 of Wednesday’s Selections: 

We had a whole slew of options ideas that we formed for yesterday morning’s premarket report, offering up targets in five separate chains based off of earnings. For our newer readers, we typically like to stick with quick-strike options in company’s which has just reported quarterly figures because of the intraday volatility they most often generate.

Yesterday our designated targets were the FCX Weekly $39-41 Calls, the BA Weekly $202.50-207.50 Calls, the TXN Weekly $180-182.50 Calls, the MSFT Weekly $300-307.50 Calls, and the SPY 01/26 $440-442 Calls. We managed a five way sweep, with all of our selected ideas producing big intraday runs for us on the day! As always, here are the total daily ranges and the highest possible percentage gains that traders could have banked.

AAPL News/Earnings Headlines Exciting Day

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Update

Yesterday morning, AAPL was among our fresh options ideas in our premarket report, as AAPL has a tendency to run into earnings, and was slated for a post-market release. That indeed was the case, and our targets, the  AAPL Weekly $375-377.50 Calls fared reasonably well.

That being said, the party is just getting started, because not only did AAPL blow Q3 earnings expectations out of the water. but the company also announced a 4-for-1 forward split planned for August. Here are the intraday gains made by our targets yesterday, which will be significantly higher once trading commences today:

AAPL Weekly $375-377.50 Calls
 10.19-15.11 (+48%)
$377.50: 8.80-13.50 (+53%)

AAPL will open at fresh all time highs, and send those contracts soaring. We’re also going to add a few other possible targets to take advantage of the current activity, with the AAPL Weekly $407.50-412.50 Calls* as well as the 08/07 $415 Calls.

More Options Review

We also had ranges of ideas in several other options chains yesterday morning and saw some truly explosive gains. Here are the ranges and total multibag profit opportunities that they provided:

QCOM Weekly $102-104 Calls
$102: 1.05-5.66 (+439%)
$103: .96-4.94 (+415%)
$104: .35-4.00 (+1043%)

PYPL Weekly $190-195 Calls
$190: 2.15-5.15 (+140%)
$192.50: 1.12-3.31 (+196%)

OSTK Weekly $70-75 Calls
 1.24-9.50 (+666%)
$75: .60-5.90 (+883%)

The markets in general have a tendency to run when AAPL crushes on earnings, and that could be ready to happen today, leading to added gains in one or more of these plays.
