Market Volatility Spikes, Creating Opportunity

Inovio Pharmaceuticals INO

It appears the markets are once again getting absolutely hammered this morning, and we are back to focusing on those plays which have been enjoying success amid the coronavirus outbreak.  INO is chief among them, largely due to the fact that the company plans to begin human testing of a coronavirus vaccine starting next month.

We tagged this stock for observation back on February 27th, and it has continued to set new highs for us all along the way. From our low of 3.83 INO has now reached 16.00, which works out to total increase of 318%


SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY – Recap

We also put forth some SPY Calls in Friday morning’s report, the SPY Weekly $294-295.50 Calls and those produced massive gains in a late day surge, ranging from 900-1100% The market volatility that scares most people, gives short term opportunistic traders like ourselves dollar signs in our eyes, and we’ve been coming up big throughout this very tenuous situation.  .

Weekly $294-295.50 Calls
$294:
 .46-4.70 (+921%)
$295: .30-3.70 (+1133%)
$295.50: .24-3.05 (+1171%)

AGTK, FZRO, IPIX, GRPS, RAFA, NVNT, NUGL, PHOT


Another 1000% Gainer!

Virgin Galactic Holdings, Inc. SPCE

It has been a full month since we formulated a longer-term play for the SPCE chain, in our premarket report on the morning of January 22nd, at which time the stock itself was trading for as little as 15.61. Despite pulling back into the close, SPCE did first soar to an incredible new high of 42.49 yesterday.

That worked out to a month-long stock move totaling 172% and it allowed our options ideas, the SPCE 02/21 $10-15 Calls, to tack on a whole lot more gains than the already impressive ones our ideas had produced up until then.

With the stock sitting where it is now, and these contracts expiring tpoday, these are most likely the final updates for this set of ideas, which couldn’t have turned out much better for us: 

SPCE 02/21 $10-15 Calls
$10: 6.24-29.50 (+373%)
$11: 5.30-29.10 (+449%)
$12: 4.30-29.90 (+595%)
$13: 3.50-26.90  (+669%)
$14: 2.80-25.20 (+800%)
$15: 2.15-26.90 (+1151%)


SPO Global Inc. SPOM 

We also have been tracking some OTC plays recently, and SPOM is among those, initially from our report on Tuesday morning.

In the three ensuing sessions, the stock has made a respectable move for us from its low on Tuesday of .155.  After another moderate push yesterday, SPOM attained a new high of .44, representing an increase of 184% over our observed low.
