KSU, IBM Options Recaps:
We attempted to continue our run of success in options speculation yesterday morning with targeted ideas in the KSU and IBM chains. While nothing really blew its lid, we still witnessed some very respectable intraday runs.
We were looking at the KSU Weekly $285-295 Calls and the IBM Weekly $134-136 Calls and saw the following opportunities to profit on the day:
KSU Weekly $285-295 Calls
$285: 10.58-12.58 (+19%)
$287.50: 10.40-12.00 (+15%)

Good Vibrations Shoes, Inc. GVSI – Recap:
We also wanted to furnish our readers with a quick update on GVSI, which appeared on yesterday morning’s extended watchlist. That is typically where one will find our daily OTC interests, and this subpenny play put up a serious move for us.
The stock traded from a daily low of .0036 all the way up to .008, which works out to an intraday run of 122%

Friday’s Big Performers:
Our first order of business on this morning is to go back over the two fresh options trading ideas that we formulated in Friday morning’s report.
We were looking out for gains in the DKNG Weekly $58-59 Calls and the ABNB Weekly $185-190 Calls, and we certainly got what we were after. In a 5 for 5 sweep, every contract set that we designated for observation posted multibag intraday runs. As far as ABNB was concerned, the potential gains on the day were absolutely enormous.
ABNB Weekly $185-190 Calls
$185: 4.60-27.42 (+496%)
$187.50: 3.25-25.15 (+673%)
$190: 2.16-23.04 (+967%)
DKNG Weekly $58-59 Calls
$58: 1.30-4.40 (+238%)
$59: .81-3.44 (+324%)
In the case of DKNG, premarket activity suggests that further gains are forthcoming, so we’re going to want to renew our idea for this fresh trading week and begin tracking the DKNG Weekly $62-63 Calls.
More Fresh Options Ideas:
SPY 03/01 $383-385 Calls
NRG Weekly $39-40.50 Calls

Acacia Research Corp. ACTG
Pretty much the entirety of 2017 has been some tough sledding for ACTG, which was in an overall downtrend since last winter when it was trading at more than twice its current value.
That all seemed to change around midway through last month, as the stock has managed to establish a good rebound effort for several sessions. In the premarket the stock has broken previous resistance which coincided with the 50DMA (3.63) and could make a move to fill that gao we’ve pointed out on the chart below.
We’ll put the stock on watch in the days and weeks ahead as we kick off this holiday-shortened trading week.
Insmed, Inc. INSM
After posting key data reflecting positive top-line results in its Phase III lung disease treatment study, INSM has exploded into the blue sky this morning. The stock has rapidly gained more than twice its value in premarket trading, and whenever we come across a situation like this, we begin to look for the options contracts that could give us the best opportunity for rapid gains.
We think that the INSM 09/15 $27-30 Calls could stand to see some nice activity if the stock continues the blue-sky breakout we’ve witnessed so far.
