Huge Stock Moves & More

Rite Aid Corp. RAD – Review

We were just talking about RAD in our premarket report from last Friday, and we wanted to close out this week by bring up the very respectable run it has produced. The morning of our report, the stock saw a low of 12.11, and subsequently registered a new high yesterday at 19.22 (+59%). As of the premarket high of 22.44 established in the premarket this morning, we’ve witnessed a one-week run of 85% from Rite Aid.

We’re also going to signal a couple of different sets of options ideas to track in the RAD chain over the next week, and beyond. We’re going to radar the RAD 1/03 $21-23 Calls, as well as the RAD 04/17 $27-30 Calls.


Other Updates
 
We also wanted to highlight some mega-moves made by stocks we’ve placed on watch recently, once again proving conclusively that options aren’t our only forte.

We tagged Clearside Biomedical, Inc. CLSD in our extended watchlist on October 18th, and witnessed a low of .75 the following day. The stock has been gradually ramping its way up in the several weeks since then, continually registering new highs, of which it hit 3.95 yesterday. That’s an incredible increase of 427%

We put Oncolytics Biotech, Inc. ONCY on watch back on November 14th, and have watched as the stock began to edge its way up, before absolutely exploding over the last week. Our observed range on this one in just over a month has been .82-2.92, a gain of 256%

Many of our longer term readers will remember how significant the gains were out of OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP as we first came across it at the end of 2016 when it went on a mega run from subpenny levels to over 2.00. When it appeared in yesterday’s watchlist it was time to start paying close attention to it again. OWCP made a 94% intraday move yesterday from a low of .028 to a high of .0543. Volume has been ramping up the last few sessions and with this type of momentum, we’ll definitely continue to keep an eye on it.

Closing Out Another Week of Success

Options Movers & More


AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Update

We want to backtrack to the options idea we offered up to our readers on Monday morning. We focused on longer-term targets, but the results have already begun to show after what has been a solid week of gains for the stock itself. .

Our contracts of interest are the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls. So far, we’ve seen significant upward movement in the $10’s and $12.50’s, and if current trends continue, we expect the $15’s to join the party soon enough.

Here are the total possible gains from our ideas so far:

$10 Calls – Range: 1.50-2.20 – Max Gain: 47%
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%

The stock is still incredibly oversold and undervalued, so we’d be very surprised if we didn’t see more of its massive topside gap filled in the days and weeks ahead. Stay tuned for further updates on this one.


McDonalds Corp. MCD – Update 

MdDonalds is another chain in which we recently put some longer-term contracts on watch. On Thursday of last week, we highlighted the MCD 01/17 $195-220 Calls 
and those have started to gain some ground as well, despite a choppy week for stocks in general.

Here are the moves we’ve observed in these plays over the past trading week:

$195 Calls – Range: 
3.65-4.80 – Max Gain: 32%
$200 Calls – Range: 1.97-2.71 – Max Gain: 38%
$210 Calls – Range: .47-.69 – Max Gain: 47%
$220 Calls – Range: .12-.22 – Max Gain: 83%
