American Express Co. AXP – For a fresh idea yesterday, we signaled a range of AXP options that we felt would see some nice activity in the wake of an earnings beat for American Express. The targets were the AXP Weekly $64-65.50 Calls.
Our assumptions proved accurate, with major moves happening for all four sets of contracts contained within that range:
$64 Calls – Range: 1.10-3.83 – Max Gain: 248%
$64.50 Calls – Range: .81-3.20 – Max Gain: 295%
$65 Calls – Range: .44-3.57 – Max Gain: 711%
$65.50 Calls – Range: .33-2.30 – Max Gain: 597%
Netflix, Inc. NFLX – We also had a running options idea going for NFLX since Tuesday, and the gains were extended even further for us in yesterday’s session. The NFLX Weekly $117-120 Calls have gone up every day since our initial alert, exceeding even our own expectations.
The updated figures below represent the range from Tuesday’s lows, to the new highs recorded yesterday, and the total possible gains therein:
$117 Calls – Range: 2.19-6.70 – Max Gain: 206%
$118 Calls – Range: 1.43-5.71 – Max Gain: 299%
$119 Calls – Range: 1.03-4.66 – Max Gain: 352%
$120 Calls – Range: 1.07-3.85 – Max Gain: 260%
Today’s Fresh Ideas
Microsoft Corp MSFT – Continuing along our extremely successful pattern of taking advantage of earnings beats for options trading this week, we’re going to submit two last ideas today. With Microsoft hitting all-time highs, we’ll be very interested in tracking the activity in the MSFT Weekly $59-61 Calls*, and if the stock manages to break $61, of course we’d have to roll our strike prices up.
McDonalds Corp. MCD - McDonalds’ earnings report is also being well received this morning and MCD was a stock that had been previously backsliding. We’ll look to take advantage of the potential reversal with the MCD Weekly $113-115 Calls*.
*We always issue an extra warning when highlighting an idea that involves trading weekly options on a Friday. If you’re not an advanced trader, don’t even attempt it!
OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP - We first began talking about OWCP on September 29th, and at the time we had designated it a subpenny bottom-play. Our observed low that day was .0045, and the stock has never looked back as it’s gone on an absolutely epic ride since then.
We were impressed enough after seeing it run over 1500% past the seven cent mark in the first week we were tracking it, but what came next was on another level. We called for our readers to watch for a dip-and-rip off of that initial run, and that’s just what happened.
The stock reached an incredible new high of .191 yesterday, marking a surreal 4144% gain over our observed low from just three weeks ago.
GreenGro Technologies, Inc. GRNH – As we’ve been mentioning all week, cannabis plays are hot once again, and one of the latest movers in that department has been GRNH. We tagged it along with several other pot stocks that have been performing well on Tuesday. Since that time, it has traded up from .0905 to as high as .142, a 57% pop.
From our next most recent alert on GRNH on October 4th, the move has been even more impressive (.0651-.142; 118%).
As we said, we’ll continue to have it and other marijuana stocks on close watch as we approach election day, with several states having recreational marijuana on the ballot.
