Options Review

Bed Bath & Beyond, Inc. BBBY – Yesterday morning’s premarket report contained an options idea for Bed Bath & Beyond following the company’s quarterly earnings report, the BBBY Weekly $13 & $13.50 Calls, and those plays both turned in fantastic intraday performances.

Regardless of which strike point was chosen, traders could have secured multi-bag profits on the day. The $13 Calls traded up from a low of .30 to a high of 1.30, for an increase of 333%, while the $13.50′s also crushed it with a huge 431% rip from .16-.85!

Constellation Brands Inc. STZ -Just as Constellation stock got crushed to new lows in the premarket on Wednesday, we formulated a couple of longer-term options ideas, and wanted to provide updates on the activity there as well.

We were banking on STZ reversing off of those lows and beginning a recovery, and so far, it’s going quite well. Our targets were the  the STZ 02/01 $150-157.50 Calls and the 04/18 $160-170 Calls, and all seven sets of contracts in those ranges have been good for significant gain opportunities. These remain in play, and will remain on our watchlist going forward.

China SXT Pharma Inc SXTC

To wrap things up we wanted to go over the call we made on Monday morning in SXTC, which at the time had registered a low of 5.684. After steadily ramping up all week, yesterday the stock reached a new high of 23.35. That worked out to an incredible four-day swing of 311%

Cheers to anyone who caught this mover in Monday morning’s premarket report. It adds to an already impressive start for us here in 2019.

Lumentum Holdings Inc. LITE

We noted yesterday morning that LITE was bucking trend of the two-day market bloodbath we witnessed this week. We made it clear that we were interested in the LITE Weekly $44-46 Calls regardless of which way the markets went, and it turned out to be a solid idea.

The markets did of course see a reversal, and LITE did perform well on the day, creating the following gains in our tracked contracts:

$44 Calls – Range: 2.00-8.00 – Max Gain: 300%
$45 Calls – Range: 2.50-6.98 – Max Gain: 179%
$46 Calls – Range: 1.25-6.00 – Max Gain: 380%

Quotient Ltd. QTNT

Another stock we went bullish on in yesterday morning’s report, despite coming off the biggest two-day losses for stocks in history, was QTNT.

It boasted a solid bottom setup, and had already exhibited some bottom-bounce activity in the prior session. It also performed well on the day, trading up from a low of 3.36 to a high of 4.39- a respectable intraday run of 31%  We’ll look for the stock to establish a trend of higher highs and higher lows over the next few sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays, Options & More

Novavax, Inc. NVAX

Our first item of interest this morning is going to be NVAX. This play set off our alarms on Friday when the stock was downgraded on the heels of ill-received trial data on the company’s RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) vaccine.

Whenever we see knee-jerk reactions take place, and Friday’s backslide of more than 80% certainly qualifies in that category, we like to place the battered stocks on watch for the subsequent recoveries that occur as often as not.

With the monster gap that Friday’s activity left on the chart (1.20′s to 8.10′s), it will be very interesting to see how the stock responds as we kick off a fresh trading week. Prior to that it had been on a fairly steady four month uptrend that almost reached the 100%-mark. All these factors playing in at once are plenty enough to reserve a slot for NVAX on our radars in coming sessions.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options Idea

We’ve tracked NFLX options to great success on multiple occasion in the past, and today seems like a good time to take another run at it. Along with being on the uptrend for the past six or seven weeks, the stock breached its 200DMA in a bullish manner on Friday, a signal that further advances could be in the cards this week. NFLX is gapping up slightly in the premarket this morning.

In accordance, we want to have an options idea ready and waiting to take advantage should a continued surge be in the cards. The targets we want to zero in on are the NFLX Weekly $99.50-101 Calls for potential swing trades.



APT Systems, Inc. APTY

We alerted our readers to a PR put out by APTY on Friday alluding to the planned purchase of shares out of the open market by the company’s CEO. That coincided with a reasonable amount of momentum that the stock had carried into that session from the one prior.

We mentioned that we liked the chances of the stock seeing some further increases for Friday’s session, and we weren’t disappointed on that front. APTY traded in a solid range from .0032 to .0044, a respectable intraday gain totaling 38%

We’ll remain interested in this play provided it can maintain support above Friday’s swing-low of .0032.
