ULTA Weekly $265-260 Puts


Fang Holdings Ltd. SFUN 

We also want to throw in a quick highlight of SFUN, which we caught off of the earnings calendar this morning, in a pretty solid bottom-bounce setup. The stock’s coming off of annual lows registered earlier this month, and showing good momentum.

The earnings report was a mixed bag, with perhaps a main highlight being a 290% in revenue from the company’s lead generation services. We are mostly interested in tracking SFUN from a technical standpoint. The upside potential is certainly there.

Thanks to a solid day for the markets yesterday, the successful options idea we dropped for the SPY on Monday morning turned in yet another huge day of potential profits. We had signaled the SPY Weekly $287-288.50 Calls as our first idea of the week, and it has been one of the best ones of the year in terms of percentage gains, already having produced intraweek ranges of up to 4000%

Each of the four contract sets in our highlighted range produced further multi-bag intraday rips of the following magnitude yesterday: 

$287 Calls – Range:
 .43-2.04 – Max Gain: 374%

Burlington Stores, Inc. BURL

Also freshly formulated in yesterday’s report was our idea for the BURL Weekly $141-144 Calls, and we were not disappointed on that front either. While the bottom half of the range was pushed too deep into the money for any serious activity, we quickly zeroed in on the top performers, the $143 and $144 Calls.

The $143′s managed a huge run from 1.45-5.80, marking an intraday surge of 300% while the $144‘s posted a range of 1.40-4.00, which works out to a 186% rip.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup

Dicks Sporting Goods, Inc. DKS – Recap

We cast a wide net with respect to the DKS options we included in yesterday’s premarket report, marking the Weekly $35-40 Calls for observation on the heels of the company’s earnings release.

While there were gains on the table for all ten of the contracts in our specified range, we won’t list all of them out, but rather just provide the bottom and the top of the range, and let our readers fill in the blanks.

The $35 Calls ran from 1.50-3.99 for an intraday move of 166%  The $40′s traded up from .10-.45, representing an upswing of 350%  Agiain, increasing, commensurate gains were available throughout our designated range of contract sets.


HP, Inc. HPQ – Recap

We also formulated an idea for the HPQ options chain in yesterday’s report, the HPQ Weekly $21-22 Calls, and were presented with some big single session moves there as well, including a five and a six-bagger!

This was another post-earnings idea, which is generally when we like to strike, at a time when price action and volatility are increased to significant levels. It provided for the following chances for profit:

$21 Calls – Range: .40-1.21 – Max Gain: 214%
$21.50 Calls – Range: .11-.76 – Max Gain: 590%
$22 Calls – Range: .05-.35 – Max Gain: 600%

Dollar General Corp. DG

We highlighted a wide range of calls in the DG chain yesterday morning on the heels of the company’s earnings release, the DG Weekly $94-96.50 Calls

While every contract in the range did see intraday gains, we’ll just focus on the $94-95.50′s, as the $96 & $96.50′s didn’t get pushed deep enough in the money to make similarly large moves.

$94 Calls – Range: .50-1.93 – Max Gain: 286%
$94.50 Calls – Range: .42-1.46 – Max Gain: 248%
$95 Calls – Range: .30-1.40 – Max Gain: 367%

Burlington Stores, Inc. BURL 

We also had the BURL 03/16 $120 & $125 Calls on watch beginning last Thursday, and between then and now, we ended up witnessing some nice moves from those plays.

Our observed range on the $120′s has been 4.04-9.53 (+136%), and the $125 have run from 1.35-4.73 (+250%) in just a week’s time.


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We’re going to come back to the SPY today after having seen the markets experience four consecutive days of losses this week.

We’ll be looking for a reversal of fortune for the SPY, and will be tracking the Weekly $274-275.50 Calls* today.

*Do NOT trade weekly calls on a Friday unless you are an expert level trader!
