Options Recaps, New Ideas

The Walt Disney Co. DIS – Options Review

On Friday morning, we closed out the week with a last minute options ideasignaling our interest in the DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls. Despite a turbulent open for stocks in general, we saw some really nice early opportunities from those ideas.

The total possible gains on those contracts were as follows: 

DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls
$139 Calls – Range: 
.61-1.48 – Max Gain: 143%
$140 Calls – Range: .38-.94 – Max Gain: 147%
$141 Calls – Range: .25-.54 – Max Gain: 116%
$142 Calls – Range: .12-.38 – Max Gain: 217%


AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Options Idea

We also took notice of ANAB this morning after the stock fell to new all-time lows yesterday. Just as a stock that shoots up a great deal in a short time must eventually come down to earth, one that tanks this hard is bound to recover some ground.

From current levels, a play on the stock itself could pan out favorably in a relatively short amount of time, but we will also designate some longer-term contracts in the options chain for an added idea. We’ll radar the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls for observation over the next several weeks.

Sun Kissed Industries, Inc. SKDI

We also highlighted SKDI as one to watch in yesterday morning’s premarket Extended Watchlist. The stock put up quite an intraday performance as it traded up from a low of .03, to a high of .16 on the day.

That works out to a single-session gain of 433% and serves as a perfect example of why we always try to include a daily Extended Watchlist, and why we will never quit speculating on the OTC entirely.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DIS Options

The Walt Disney Co. DIS

The first thing on the menu this morning is to take a look at Disney on the heels of ESPN+ securing US broadcast rights to Bundesliga soccer from 2020 to 2026.

The stock is already exhibiting a fairly solid double bottom formation. What we want to see is DIS holding above the 200DMA of 125.98, and if it can manage that, we’re going to be very interested in the DIS 11/08 $133-136 Calls. 


Atreca, Inc. BCEL

We also want to radar BCEL, which is a bottom-play candidate for us as we kick off this fresh trading week. The stock nearing the 3-month mark since its IPO, and is not trading far off of its records lows at the moment.

We’re going to want to keep an eye on this play for a potential reversal ion the days and weeks ahead. The stock had a swing of over 100% last month near these levels, so we will be interested to watch and see if it can repeat itself.
