Acuity Brands, inc. AYI – Options Update
We took the opportunity to jump on some AYI calls following a poor showing from the company’s Q3 financials. We felt that the blow taken by the stock in the previous session was an overreaction, and decided to radar a couple of sets of contracts in the AYI chain to correspond with what we assumed would be a rebound from this burst of overselling,
Our targets were the AYI 07/19 $125-130 Calls. We banked on a course correction to provide us with a push and things turned out just as we hoped they might. The stock traded in a daily range from a low of 129.90 and cruised as high as 136.74. That allowed for some very respectable intraday gain opportunities for us, and we will want to continue to monitor these in the sessions ahead.
The $125 Calls ran from 6.10-11.55 for a daily rip of 89% while the $130′s went from 2.85-7.20, a gain of 153% A full two weeks remain before these contracts expire.
KB Homes KBH – Recap
We also signaled our interest in some KBH calls last Thursday. Since that time, the stock has been slowly creeping upward, and we’ve realized the potential for some very nice moves in our KBH 07/19 $26-27 Calls, which experienced their lows on the morning of our initial alert, and reached new highs yesterday.
The $26 Calls ran from .35-1.05, for an even 200% burst, while the $27′s fared slightly better. Those produced a move from .15-.47, signifying a run of 213%
