Options Recaps, New Ideas

The Walt Disney Co. DIS – Options Review

On Friday morning, we closed out the week with a last minute options ideasignaling our interest in the DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls. Despite a turbulent open for stocks in general, we saw some really nice early opportunities from those ideas.

The total possible gains on those contracts were as follows: 

DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls
$139 Calls – Range: 
.61-1.48 – Max Gain: 143%
$140 Calls – Range: .38-.94 – Max Gain: 147%
$141 Calls – Range: .25-.54 – Max Gain: 116%
$142 Calls – Range: .12-.38 – Max Gain: 217%


AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Options Idea

We also took notice of ANAB this morning after the stock fell to new all-time lows yesterday. Just as a stock that shoots up a great deal in a short time must eventually come down to earth, one that tanks this hard is bound to recover some ground.

From current levels, a play on the stock itself could pan out favorably in a relatively short amount of time, but we will also designate some longer-term contracts in the options chain for an added idea. We’ll radar the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls for observation over the next several weeks.

Continued Options Success

Yesterday we mentioned that we were in the heart of a major flood of earnings reports. We recapped the 4-pack of ideas we gave out on Monday, and formulated new ideas for four more plays. Once again and for the second day in a row, ALL FOUR of our ideas bore major fruit in a single session.

For any newcomers that don’t understand why we go back to quick-strike options trading again and again, this is the reason. There’s no other way to make such large potential gains, so reliably, over such a short period. Even the OTC Markets cannot provide the same near-term volatility.

These were the intraday gains made possible by yesterday’s fresh ideas:

PG Weekly $118-121 Calls 
$118 Calls – Range: 1.75-3.80 – Max Gain: 117%
$119 Calls – Range: 1.45-3.00 – Max Gain: 107%
$120 Calls – Range: .60-2.18  – Max Gain: 263%
$121 Calls – Range: .42-1.50  – Max Gain: 257%

RL Weekly $110-113 Calls 
$110 Calls – Range: .80-1.95 – Max Gain: 144%
$111 Calls – Range: .45-1.71 – Max Gain: 280%
$112 Calls – Range: .40-1.05  – Max Gain: 163%
$113 Calls – Range: .20-.70  – Max Gain: 250%

OSTK Weekly $22.50-24 Calls  
$22.50 Calls – Range: .85-1.40 – Max Gain: 65%
$23 Calls – Range: .40-.95 – Max Gain: 138%
$23.50 Calls – Range: .25-1.03 – Max Gain: 312%
