Horizon Pharma plc HZNP
Our first idea of the week in yesterday’s premarket report, which was to track the HZNP Weekly $14 and 15 Calls, ended up paying instant dividends. HZNP was coming off of its earnings call as well as highlighting a new 5M share repurchase program.
Both of our targeted sets of contracts experienced significant intraday swing action which traders could have utilized for solid single-session gains. The $14 Calls ran impressively from a low of .88 to a subsequent high of 2.15, for a 144% rip. The $15’s put up a pleasing performance of similar magnitude, trading in a range from .60-1.33, for total possible profits of up to 122%
We identified 16.15 as an indicating point, the breaching of which would signal us to roll up our strike price to $16. That still remains true as we continue along through the week.
