Facebook, Inc. FB – FB was cruising in the premarket yesterday in the wake of an earnings beat, and we signaled a range of contracts where we supposed the heaviest action would fall (FB Weekly $106-111 Calls). It would not have mattered which set of contracts traders chose to strike, because they all provided chances at hefty gains.
In every case, there was a big initial spike, followed by a dip-and-rip which added an additional intraday swing. The breakdown of those moves is as follows:
$106 Calls – 1st Swing: 2.77-4.70 (70%) – 2nd Swing: 2.37-3.60 (52%)
$107 Calls – 1st Swing: 1.60-3.70 (131%) – 2nd Swing: 1.60-2.70 (69%)
$108 Calls – 1st Swing: 1.40 – 2.89 (106%) – 2nd Swing: 1.00-1.80 (80%)
$109 Calls – 1st Swing: .88-2.07 (135%) – 2nd Swing: .58-1.12 (93%)
$110 Calls – 1st Swing: .49-1.42 (190%) – 2nd Swing: .30-.62 (106%)
$111 Calls – 1st Swing: .33-92 (179%) – 2nd Swing: .14-.33 (136%)
Expedia, Inc. EXPE -The buzz over EXPE’s buyout of HomeAway, Inc. AWAY was enough to get it moving in yesterday’s premarket. Our corresponding options idea for this one was to track EXPE Weekly $138-142 Calls and like FB, there was no losing pick within our specified range of contracts. Cheers to anyone that got in on the fun, as double-bag gains were possible across the board!

Weight Watchers International, Inc. WTW
Our regular readers will certainly recall our successful coverage of WTW as Oprah’s involvement was announced a few weeks back; we had monstrous success with our options selections, and even saw an amazing move from the stock itself. Our observed low on WTW was 10.76, and this morning we’ve seen it change hands for as much as 20.80.
With this impressive early morning gap-up, we’re going to want to jump back into the mix with another options idea. We’ll be monitoring the Weekly $18-20 Calls for potential daytrade opportunities on the dip-and-rip which is likely to occur.
Endeavor IP, Inc. ENIP
On the stock side of things, we included ENIP in our premarket extended watchlist yesterday and this super-subpenny play didn’t disappoint, offering up the chance at single-session double-bag profits!
From an early low of .0004, the stock surged toward the end of the session, reaching as high as .0009. That registered as an 125% intraday swing, and it came on more than three times the monthly average volume.
