Options HOT Streak!

Options Roundup

Yesterday brought more extreme success in the options trading arena for us, as we formulated two new ideas that worked out nicely, as well as increasing our strike field on the SPY by an extra two sets of contracts.

Our initial targets from Wednesday were the SPY Weekly $334-335 Calls, and we rolled up to include the $336 and $337’s as well. In each case, we saw some nice gains on the day yesterday:

SPY Weekly $334-335 Calls
$334: 2.47-4.87 (+97%)
$335: 2.00-5.64 (+182%)
$336: 1.88-2.95 (+57%)
$337: 1.46-2.35 (+61%)

The two fresh options plays that we highlighted were the NKLA Weekly $21.50-23 Calls and the BBBY Weekly $16-18 Calls, and in both cases, we saw some fantastic opportunities to profit.

NKLA Weekly $21.50-23 Calls 
$21.50: 1.17-5.40 (+362%)
$22: .91-5.20 (+471%)
$22.50: .66-4.57 (+592%)
$23: .50-4.16 (+732%)

BBBY Weekly $16-18 Calls
: 1.55-4.20 (+171%)
$16.50: 1.57-3.80 (+142%)
$17: 1.28-3.30 (+158%)
$17.50: .93-2.79 (+200%)
$18: .26-2.46 (+846%)

We also saw some more really great moves out of the UBER Calls we began tracking on Tuesday morning, including a ten-bagger!

UBER Weekly $34.50-36 Calls
: .68-3.35 (+392%)
$35: .39-2.58 (+561%)
$35.50: .25-2.29 (+816%)
$36: .15-1.81 (+1040%)

ABCO Energy, Inc. ABCE 

After mounting a run from .0004 up to .0009 as we mentioned in yesterday morning’s report, we cautioned readers that the stock had traded massive volume, and that we’d be on the lookout for a continuation of momentum.

That’s just what ended up happening, as ABCE pushed to a new high .0013. That extends our two-day observed gains on this play to 225%

Options Success, Bottom Watch Play

SPY Options Review

Yesterday morning, we went bearish on the markets as a whole, signaling the SPY 09/09 $340-338 Puts for observation in our premarket report. Our hunch on the daily direction of the wind proved solid, as the contracts in our designated range produced healthy intraday runs.

Here are the moves and total possible gains we witnessed there:  

SPY 09/09 $340-338 Puts
: 3.94-7.59 (+93%)
$339: 3.30-6.78 (+105%)
$338: 2.75-6.00 (+118%)

Fresh Options Ideas: 
KOD 10/16 $45-50 Calls
LULU Weekly $340-335 Puts 

Akabia Therapeutics, Inc. AKBA

We took notice of AKBA this morning because of the intriguing setup of the chart. The company had a bad clinical report recently and fell off of an absolute cliff. We want to place this on bottom watch and observe closely over the next several sessions.

There is a massive gap to the upside that you could drive a truck through, so we’re going to be anxious to see when the stock will move to fill some of that gap.

TGT Update, Fresh Options Idea

Target Corp. TGT

Just as we mentioned yesterday morning to start off the week, it was on Thursday morning that we signaled our interest in tracking some TGT Puts. They hadn’t quite heated up yet by the end of last week, but we urged readers yesterday to pay close attention, as the gains seemed imminent.

We were correct in that assumption, as the markets once again set a new record for worst daily losses in history. That helped propel the massive range of contracts we signaled, the TGT 04/03 $98-90 Puts, to double-bag gain status and beyond, exactly as we predicted.

Here are the trading ranges on those contracts since we’ve had them on our radar:

TGT 04/03 $98-90 Puts
$98: 3.37-6.92 (+105%)
$97: 2.90-6.60 (+128%)
$96: 2.73-6.00 (+120%)
$95: 2.21-5.95 (+169%)
$94: 2.54-5.50 (+117%)
$93: 1.99-5.05 (+154%)
$92: 2.44-4.50 (+84%)
$91: 2.00-4.25 (+113%)
$90: 1.47-3.80 (+156%)

Transdigm Group, Inc TDG

We would like to put together a set of call contracts to watch in the TDG chain. It’s no surprise that the stock is at a bottom at present, but what is remarkable is the amount of insider buying that has taken place in the last week, to the tune of roughly $180M.

That typically signals an insider’s confidence that the stock will not fall much further. We are going to put the TDG 05/15 $350-370 Calls on watch to track in the weeks ahead.
