Burlington Stores, Inc. BURL – Options Update
We reported our interest in tracking some BURL options in the wake of a strong earnings report yesterday morning, and signaled the BURL 03/17 $85-95 Calls. Just as we suspected, the boost of momentum from that earnings beat provided the fuel for those contracts to put up some impressive performances on the day.
The possible gains so far, which could be augmented today with another bullish move, were as follows:
$85 Calls – Range: 5.60-10.00 – Max Gain: 79%
$90 Calls – Range: 2.50-5.20 – Max Gain: 1084%
$95 Calls – Range: .71-1.93 – Max Gain: 172%
InterCloud Systems, Inc. ICLD
We also want to continue keeping an eye on ICLD, in which volume has been exploding over the past couple sessions as the stock has rebounded off of its 52-week lows.
The stock traded in a relatively modest range from .0157 to .02 (+27%) yesterday, but closed with strength. Especially with the enormous flow of volume at the present time, we’re definitely interested in tracking ICLD’s movements over the next several sessions.
Fresh Options Ideas:
Big Lots, Inc. BIG - Big Lots had a mixed bag earnings report today, missing estimates on sales, but beating on profits. Still, it appears as if BIG could be gearing up for a decent run, so we’re going to highlight a range of options to track- the BIG 03/17 $52.50-57.50 Calls.
Caterpillar, Inc. CAT – On a bearish note, things got ugly for Caterpillar yesterday as multiple federal agencies participated in a massive raid of its offices in relation to a years-long IRS investigation into a billion dollar tax discrepancy. CAT stock took a massive gut punch, and could continue to see hardship as more details of the investigation and possible consequences become available. We’ll be tracking the CAT 04/07 $88-85 Puts, which could fare extremely well if it comes down to fill a gap on its chart which we’ve pointed out below.
