Options Review, Four Fresh Ideas

Options Review: 

This morning we’re going to start off by going over the options plays that worked out for us yesterday. We were tracking ideas in the TLRY and SPY chains that produced moderate, and excellent gains, respectively.

We were going after the TLRY Weekly $7-7.50 Calls, and the SPY 04/06 $448-446 Puts. and those plays did manage to record solid performances on the day as the markets were depressed on the session. While the Tllray calls only managed small moves, the SPY Puts exploded for huge multibsag runs.

TLRY Weekly $7-7.50 Calls
 1.06-1.45 (+37%)
$7.50: .80-1.18 (+48%)

SPY 04/06 $448-446 Puts
$448: .55-2.80 (+409%)
$447: .27-1.91 (+607%)
$446: .14-1.20 (+757%)

Fresh Options Ideas:
CRMT 09/16 $75-85 Calls
CAG 04/08 $35-33 Puts
STZ 04/08 $237.50-232.50 Puts
LW 04/15 $60 Calls

Icon Media Holdings Inc. ICNM – OTC Recap:

To quickly update on the performance of an OTC stock we’ve been tracking in recent weeks, ICNM moved the needle yesterday as it ran from .0013 to .,0023 on the day.

That works out to an upswing of 77% and warrants further observation of the stock as it presses into blue skies.

Closing Out the Short Trading Week

Options Review: 

The end of holiday week one of two is upon us, and it was a pretty good one in terms of the gain opportunities we observed. We expect a subdued end to this short week, but we wanted to swing back around for a couple of longer-term calls we submitted last week in our reports for December 13th (TSM) and December 15th (TKR).

We were tracking the TSM 01/07 $122-124 Calls and the TKR 01/21 $65-70 Calls, and both sets of ideas have gained some good ground this week. Here are the overall increases we’ve witnessed in those ideas so far:

TSM 01/07 $122-124 Calls
 .98-2.45 (+150%)
$123:.70-1.68 (+140%)
$124: .70-1.68 (+140%)

TKR 01/21 $65-70 Calls
$65: 1.97-4.10 (+108%)
$67.50: .55-1.24 (+125%)
$70: .08-.25 (+212%)

Fresh Options Idea:
SPY 12/23 $467-469 Calls
CROX 01/21 $150-155 Calls

BiondVax Pharmaceuticals, Inc. BVXV:

We would like to close things out by providing a quick update on BVXV which appeared in yesterday’s extended watchlist. While it did produce a multibag run, it did have two separate moves on the day that are worth mentioning.

First it ran from 2.72-3.49 (+28%), followed by a slight pullback and a move from .2.31-3.00 (+30%) for a cumulative total of 58% on the day. .

Friday’s Runners, Today’s Fresh Targets

Options Review: 

As usual, we’re going to make our first order of business this morning, the highlighting of our options plays from Friday and what was performing. Three out of the five sets of ideas we formulated in Friday morning’s premarket report recorded notable intraday gains for us.

Those winning targets were the DOCU Weekly $190-175 Puts, the SMAR Weekly $65-70 Calls, and the MRVL Weekly $79-85 Calls. and while the gains weren’t earth-shattering, there were certainly plenty of strong intraday profit chances which could have been seized upon, to the tune of the following moves:

DOCU Weekly $190-175 Puts
 35.01-58.12 (+66%)
$185: 29.82-53.30 (+79%)
$180: 24.24-42.00 (+73%)
$175: 20.04-42.97 (+114%)

SMAR Weekly $65-70 Calls
$65: 4.60-7.24 (+57%)
$70: 3.04-4.00 (+32%)

MRVL Weekly $79-85 Calls
$79: 6.53-9.00 (+38%)
$80: 5.06-8.60 (+70%)
$85: 1.53-4.50 (+194%)

Fresh Options Ideas: 

The premarket earnings calendar is rather light this morning, but we did hash out some ideas with two out of the three reporters, as well as target some daily SPY Calls, as the markets appear to be gearing up to pare losses from Friday’s down session.

SAIC Weekly $85-90 Calls
DLHC Weekly $12.50 Calls
SPY 12/06 $453-454 Calls*

*Trading options contracts on their day of expiration carries higher risk, and should only be attempted by experienced traders
