Coronavirus Watchlist & More

Todos Medical, Ltd. TOMDF

The see-saw of market volatility persists with no end in sight. Traditional investing has become a fool’s errand in many, if not most, cases. The kind of opportunistic short term trading that we do is relatively intact, with the right targets and scenarios.

In this case, we caught TOMDF’s coronavirus news in the premarket yesterday, stating that the company had secured distribution agreements for testing kits in both the US and Isreal. After including it in our extended watchlist, the stock managed a very nice intraday gain. It traded up from a low of  0413, and reached a high of .08, which works out to an intraday upswing of 94%


Coronavirus Watchlist

While we do focus primarily on quick strike opportunities, it’s also worth it to mention a few plays that represent products and services that are high demand at the present time due to the fallout from COVID-19. If the report from the UK’s highly respected Imperial College is accurate, this global health crisis is only in its beginning stages, and will get much, much worse in the months ahead.

While neither these, nor any other plays are “corona-proof”, the effects may weigh less heavily on these stocks and those like them:

CPB, APRN, CLX, GIS, PG

MATN, ZOOM, DECN, PCTL, NBDR, IPIX, GNPX, GNBT

Happy Holidays!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, ONE AND ALL!

We want to start things off this short trading week, by wishing everyone a happy holiday season, no matter how you celebrate!

This is traditionally a very low-key week for the markets, as most people are focused on enjoying their families or time off from work at this time. Especially with no major earnings reporters on the calendar, we expect a relatively subdued start to the week as well.


General Mills, Inc. GIS 

One thing we do want to do is circle back to the call we made for the GIS options chain on Wednesday, which made a pretty good move into the end of the week, and will be high on our watchlist , as further gains are very possible.

We had highlighted the GIS 01/17 $55 Calls, and they subsequently made a very impressive move from .10-.29, marking a rise of 190% We will continue to keep an eye on this play, as GIS attempts to break the double top around the $54 mark. A break of that area will send these gains soaring.


Fresh Options Ideas: 

Finally, it wouldn’t feel like the start of a fresh trading week without some fresh options speculation.

We’re going to radar the SPG 01/17 $145-150 Calls as the chart is in a prime bottom-bounce setup. We took it out to the January 17th’s to give ourselves ample time to witness what appears to be an impending rebound.
