Options Recaps, Bottom Bouncer & More

Novavax, Inc. NVAX – Recap

We would like to kick things off this morning by circling back around to an options idea we had submitted last week. We targeted the NVAX 05/22 $38-40 Calls which saw their lows on Thursday and ran into this week, posting some really nice moves.

We wanted to highlight those, potential gains, although it would appear the stock’s run is over, so we likely won’t be tracking these into expiration. The company announced a huge capital raise this morning which is not being looked upon favorably by the investment community.

At any rate, the ranges on our NVAX targets from last week into this week were as follows: 

NVAX 05/22 $38-40 Calls
3.08-20.86 (+122%)
$39: 2.67-20.00 (+246%)
$40: 2.10-20.00 (+293%)

Fresh Ideas:
LOW Weekly $120-125 Calls
WMT 05/29 $129-130 Calls

Verastem, Inc. VSTM

This biotech isn’t coronavirus related, and we have not done a whole lot of technical trading since the crisis started, but we do like where this play is on the chart at the moment.

It had come down to hold support near a previous bottom, stringing together some higher lows and higher highs this week, and we’re going to put it on our running watchlist going forward.

Options Updates:

In these exceptionally volatile times, it’s always good to have both long and short targets, depending on which way the wind is blowing. With the help of yet another bloody day for the markets at large, the bearish ideas we’ve been tracking in MAR all week tacked on some impressive new highs, and the new CYBR Puts we added in fresh for yesterday’s report immediately went exponential.

In the case of MAR, these numbers represent 2-day swings, and for CYBR, we’ve got yesterday’s intraday ranges:  

MAR Weekly $86.50-85 Puts
2.80-11.72 (+319%)
$86: 2.70-11.27 (+317%)
$85.50: 2.20-9.07 (+312%)
$85: 2.13-10.00 (+369%)

CYBR Weekly $107-104 Puts 

$107: 2.70-11.90 (+341%)
$106: 2.80-9.87 (+253%)
$105: 2.26-10.00 (+342%)
$104: 2.40-9.00 (+275%)

With the aforementioned winds once again blowing in a bearish direction this morning, we’ll keep an eye out for even more new highs in these plays. We’ll also add in a related idea for the SPDR S&P 500 ETF, and put the SPY Weekly $280-278 Puts on watch into tomorrow.

New Options Ideas:
EQM Weekly $15-17.50 Calls
JACK Weekly $65-60 Puts
ONEM Weekly $25-22.50 Puts
