Late last week, we selected a few contracts in the Facebook and Twitter options chains for longer-term ideas. The FB 10/12 $182.50-190 Calls, and the TWTR 10/12 $35 & 37.50 Calls. While they haven’t blown their lids quite yet, we wanted to reiterate our interest in tracking these over a longer time period.
The somewhat nominal gains achieved so far are as follows:
FB 10/12 $182.50’s: .53-.80 (+51%) | $185’s: 40-.54 (+35%)
TWTR 10/12 $35’s: .33-.52 (+56%) | $37.50’s: .28-.40 (43%)
We’ll continue to track these ranges, as there is still plenty of time for them to begin realizing their full potential. What we’ve seen to this point may be just the beginning.
To add to our social media related options ideas, we also see SNAP coming off of a recent bottom, and will signal the SNAP 10/05 $9 & 9.50 Calls for observation as the stock attempts to mount a recovery of recent losses.
With a major category-4 hurricane currently inbound for the Carolina coastline this week, we’re also going to highlight some plays in Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement, which tend to see surges in the wake of storms big enough to require extensive cleanup and repairs. According to all predictive models, Hurricane Florence definitely fits that bill.
HD Weekly $212.50 & 215 Calls
