Kicking Off a Fresh Trading Week

Direxion Daily S&P Oil & Gas Exp. & Prod. Bull 2X Shares (ETF) GUSH

On Wednesday morning, we tagged GUSH for observation, and after just a few sessions , it came up off Wednesday’s low at 20.37 fairly convincingly.

On Thursday, this fund ran to a new high of 29.25, which marked a two-session upswing totaling a relatively modest yet respectable 44% increase. We will continue to monitor GUSH, which was a $500/share fund just six weeks ago.

Levi Strauss & Co. LEVI – Options Update 

We signaled a range of LEVI calls last week, also on Wednesday, in the LEVI 04/17 $12-13 Calls, and saw some solid gains from those ideas in the final two days of the short week. Both contract sets experienced multi-bag gains as follows:

LEVI 04/17 $12-13 Calls
$12:.80-2.55 (+150%)
$13: .30-1.70 (+283%)

These plays expire on Friday, so we’ll leave them on the radar to see what they have in store for this fresh trading week.

TOMDF Run Continues

Todos Medical, Ltd. TOMDF

We have been tracking TOMDF since Tuesday morning in the premarket, when we included it in our extended watchlist. At the time, it was trading for as little as .0413 per share, and while it had a solid session that day, the gains hadn’t quite yet cracked the double-bag threshold.

Yesterday, after another really good performance, that mark was attained and then some. TOMDF has gone on to hit a new high of .17 for us, which works out to a big gain of 312%

The company’s rapid (2-10min) COVID-19 point-of-care test has been the primary reason for the stock’s huge moves. We will stay updated on the progress of the company getting the tests put into action, and will be interested to see if more upswings are on the horizon as a result.

Options Recaps

We signaled a range of options in the GILD chain in yesterday morning’s report. with the GILD Weekly $79-81 Calls. Thanks to a pretty good day for the markets, all things considered, we witnessed some very nice moves out of those targets.

Weekly $79-81 Calls
 3.44-8.00 (+133%)
$80: 2.68-7.42 (+177%)
$81: 2.49-6.05 (+143%)

CRWD Weekly $47.50-50 Calls & 03/27 $52-53.50 Calls

Extended Watchlist:

APRN Blows its Lid & More

Blue Apron Holdings Inc. APRN

We provided readers with a set of stocks that we felt were uniquely built to weather the coronavirus storm in yesterday morning’s premarket report. APRN had already begun to rise a little bit prior to that, but yesterday’s huge session really sent it for a ride.

The stock registered as the number three top gainer on the NASDAQ for its performance, which saw it trade up from a low 8.70 and hit 19.49, which represents an intraday rise of 124%. As of this morning’s premarket trading, APRN has now hit 24.50, extending our total observed range in 24 hours to 182%

With people being urged to stay home as much as possible, and perhaps with a mandatory nationwide quarantine on the way, we would expect Blue Apron’s order volume to stay at what we can only imagine are all time highs. As far as how high the stock could run, that’s anyone’s guess, but we’ll be tracking it closely to find out.

Decision Diagnostics Corp. DECN

Certain stocks on the OTC have also been enjoying solid performances in relation to the coronavirus.  The company believes that its GenViro! COVID-19 “Rapid” Kit will be in high demand after the release of new FDA guidance allowing for near immediate distribution of kits with minimal red tape.

We had placed the stock in our extended watchlist in yesterday morning’s report, and were met with a very respectable intraday move from .118-.198, which works out to a gain of 68%
