Bearish Options Ideas

FedEx Corp. FDX – Options Review

Despite having signaled our options idea FDX on Tuesday morning, it was a postmarket drop, thus, leading into yesterday’s session, the earnings were still untraded upon. We reminded readers yesterday morning to look out for what we expected to be a solid performance, and we were not wrong.

Our sole target, the FDX Weekly $237.50 Calls ran from a low of 7.95 all the way up to 19.00 for us, which mean our idea has been good for a gain of up to 139% to this point.


Options Ideas With the markets flailing and looking to be set up for a lackluster day, we are going to open things up today and track a few sets of bearish options ideas for the SPY, AAPL, and NKE chains.

SPY Weekly $335-333 Puts
AAPL Weekly $111.25-108.75 Puts
NKE Weekly $118-117 Puts


Extended Watchlist:
PPCB, VNUE, TSOI, CLHI, HENC, CETY

Markets Crashing, Bears Cashing!

Options Updates:

In these exceptionally volatile times, it’s always good to have both long and short targets, depending on which way the wind is blowing. With the help of yet another bloody day for the markets at large, the bearish ideas we’ve been tracking in MAR all week tacked on some impressive new highs, and the new CYBR Puts we added in fresh for yesterday’s report immediately went exponential.

In the case of MAR, these numbers represent 2-day swings, and for CYBR, we’ve got yesterday’s intraday ranges:  

MAR Weekly $86.50-85 Puts
$86.50:
2.80-11.72 (+319%)
$86: 2.70-11.27 (+317%)
$85.50: 2.20-9.07 (+312%)

$104: 2.40-9.00 (+275%)

With the aforementioned winds once again blowing in a bearish direction this morning, we’ll keep an eye out for even more new highs in these plays. We’ll also add in a related idea for the SPDR S&P 500 ETF, and put the SPY Weekly $280-278 Puts on watch into tomorrow.
