After big success with SPY options earlier last week, we decided to roll up our strike prices and make another pass at an some options ideas on the fund to open things up this week. A reversal on plans to slap tariffs on Mexican goods is helping to fuel a push for the markets in early trading today.
Our ideas for Friday were the SPY Weekly $285-286 Calls, and we’re happy to report some huge single session, multibag gain opportunities came out of those calls for us.
$285 Calls – Range: 1.18-3.86 – Max Gain: 227%
$286 Calls – Range: .59-2.89. – Max Gain: 393%
In order to stay close to the action, we’re going to want to stick with bullish SPY calls and roll up our strike prices yet again to kick off a new trading week this morning. We’re going to radar the SPY Weekly $288-290 Calls.
MGM Resorts International Inc. MGM – Form-4 Alert
We always scan for new Form-4 submissions, and MGM is the latest subject of insider trading. A director of the company purchased over $20M in MGM stock three separate times last week. Between the buying from Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, Keith Meister purchased in excess of $75M+ worth of his company’s shares.
That is no small series of transactions, and leads us to believe confidence on the inside at MGm is high that the stock can continue recover off of its recent relative lows. We’re going to signal some longer term calls to correspond with the situation and begin tracking the MGM 08/16 $28-30 Calls.
