Stock Updates

We also had a couple of stock calls from our extended watchlist produce some solid gain chances for us, which were as follows.

Ozop Surgical Corp. OZSC 
Range: .0133-.0247 – Total Gain: 86%

Transportation and Logistics Systems, Inc. TLSS
Range: .0421-.094  – Total Gain: 123%


Vaxart Inc. VXRT – News Alert

We’ve been tracking VXRT pretty closely in recent weeks, and wanted to include a lonk to the coronavirus news the company put out this morning, which points to the company possible making some headway in the fight to develop a vaccine. It’s sending the stock on a ride in the premarket, and keeping us on high alert.

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vaxart, Inc., a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing oral recombinant vaccines that are administered by tablet rather than by injection, today announced that it has obtained positive pre-clinical results for its COVID-19 vaccine candidates, with several of the vaccine candidates generating immune responses in all tested animals after a single dose.(>>View Full PR)


Options Movers & More


AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Update

We want to backtrack to the options idea we offered up to our readers on Monday morning. We focused on longer-term targets, but the results have already begun to show after what has been a solid week of gains for the stock itself. .

Our contracts of interest are the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls. So far, we’ve seen significant upward movement in the $10’s and $12.50’s, and if current trends continue, we expect the $15’s to join the party soon enough.

Here are the total possible gains from our ideas so far:

$10 Calls – Range: 1.50-2.20 – Max Gain: 47%
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%

The stock is still incredibly oversold and undervalued, so we’d be very surprised if we didn’t see more of its massive topside gap filled in the days and weeks ahead. Stay tuned for further updates on this one.


McDonalds Corp. MCD – Update 

MdDonalds is another chain in which we recently put some longer-term contracts on watch. On Thursday of last week, we highlighted the MCD 01/17 $195-220 Calls 
and those have started to gain some ground as well, despite a choppy week for stocks in general.

Here are the moves we’ve observed in these plays over the past trading week:

$195 Calls – Range: 
3.65-4.80 – Max Gain: 32%
$200 Calls – Range: 1.97-2.71 – Max Gain: 38%
$210 Calls – Range: .47-.69 – Max Gain: 47%
$220 Calls – Range: .12-.22 – Max Gain: 83%
