Killing it On the Options Front
It seems each time we put out new ideas for potential options trades, tjhat we are met with instant success. Such has been the case for the last several calls as it seems we identify winners much more often than not. Most recently, yesterday morning in our premarket report, we highlighted some possible plays in TGT nand LOW, and they both turned in a winning card on the day.
Here are the trading ranges and total possible single-session profits that were available to anyone who happened to act on our suggestions:
TGT Weekly $98-101 Calls
$98 Calls – Range: 2.18-5.40 – Max Gain: 128%
$99 Calls – Range: 1.64-4.35 – Max Gain: 166%
$100 Calls – Range: 1.20-3.63 – Max Gain: 203%
*$101 Calls – Produced similar gains, however we were unable to pull up the corresponding data.
Update: We want to roll up and monitor the TGT Weekly $103-104 Calls into the end of the week.
LOW Weekly $107-110 Calls
$107 Calls – Range: 1.95-3.20 – Max Gain: 64%
$108 Calls – Range: 1.40-2.47 – Max Gain: 76%

Acuity Brands, inc. AYI – Options Update
We took the opportunity to jump on some AYI calls following a poor showing from the company’s Q3 financials. We felt that the blow taken by the stock in the previous session was an overreaction, and decided to radar a couple of sets of contracts in the AYI chain to correspond with what we assumed would be a rebound from this burst of overselling,
Our targets were the AYI 07/19 $125-130 Calls. We banked on a course correction to provide us with a push and things turned out just as we hoped they might. The stock traded in a daily range from a low of 129.90 and cruised as high as 136.74. That allowed for some very respectable intraday gain opportunities for us, and we will want to continue to monitor these in the sessions ahead.
The $125 Calls ran from 6.10-11.55 for a daily rip of 89% while the $130’s went from 2.85-7.20, a gain of 153% A full two weeks remain before these contracts expire.
KB Homes KBH – Recap
We also signaled our interest in some KBH calls last Thursday. Since that time, the stock has been slowly creeping upward, and we’ve realized the potential for some very nice moves in our KBH 07/19 $26-27 Calls, which experienced their lows on the morning of our initial alert, and reached new highs yesterday.
The $26 Calls ran from .35-1.05, for an even 200% burst, while the $27’s fared slightly better. Those produced a move from .15-.47, signifying a run of 213%

SPY Keeps Winning
Yesterday morning in our premarket report, we had just wrapped up with our recap of Friday’s multi-bag winning SPY Calls, and of course we rolled the dice again. We issued an alert for some fresh SPY ideas, and were rewarded with the chance at some serious intraday gains late in the session.
Of the three contracts in the range of the SPY Weekly $295-296 Calls, it was the $295 and $295.50’s that produced the eye-popping moves. The $295’s traded in a range from .08 to .74, an 825% rip, while the $295.50’s blasted off on a run from .03-.31, for a gain of 933%
Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. NUS
We’re also interested in putting NUS on watch as a possible longer term, swing trade candidate. The chart is technically attractive, with the stock testing its 50DMA briefly yesterday. The volatility ppotential is there, and it has the makings of what could be a good rebound play.
We’re going to place the NUS 09/28 $50-55 Calls on watch. A break past that 50DMA, even the likes of what occurred toward the beginning of last month, would mean ample opportunity in our designated range.
