Caterpillar, Inc. CAT – Update
After a huge earnings beat yesterday morning, we mentioned that we’d be monitoring the CAT Weekly $157.50-162.50 Calls to take advantage of the big boost in activity.
We did end up seeing some very nice moves from those contracts early on, before the market took a dive and took Caterpillar with it. The gains that were on the table in the morning prior to that dip were as follows:
$157.50′s : 2.30-4.50 (95%)
$160′s: 1.26-2.84 (+125%)
$162.50′s: .52-1.60 (+107%)
After the stock’s course correction, we’re going to dip back into the pool and slate the Weekly $143-145 Calls for observation as we head through this midweek.
Fresh Options Idea:
Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. CBI – We like the current setup of the CBI chart so we’re going to be tracking some options ideas there as well, with the CBI 05/18 $15-16 Calls.
Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA
We want to circle back around for an update on MARA this morning, after what has been a fruitful month for the stock. We last signaled this play on March 28th, and shortly thereafter witnessed a low of .92.
In the three weeks that followed we have seen some very nice, steady increases from MARA, with its new highs being registered at 1.94 yesterday. That marks an intra-month run of 111%
