Eastman Kodak Co. KODK
In a surprise development yesterday, Kodak announced that it would be the latest company to hop on the cryptocurrency bandwagon, with the upcoming launching of its own crypto coin, KODAKcoin. It is said to be in development for a photo rights licensing platform the photography pioneer is working on.
While that’s all well and good, what we have seen on the KODK chart amounts to little more than a hype fueled surge, which we believe to be unsustainable over the long term. What we want to do to try to use this situation to our advantage is set ourselves up with some bearish options ideas to follow in the weeks ahead.
We;re going to signal the KODK 02/16 $15 & $12.50 Puts. It gives us plenty of time to see KODK top out and begin to come back to Earth, which would certainly provide chances in those contracts on the way down.
Xunlei Ltd. XNET
The most recent time that we tagged XNET was a month ago tomorrow, on December 11th, and shortly thereafter the stock would log a low of 12.30. From that point it launched into what has been a very solid run over the past few weeks.
The stock cracked the twenty-dollar barrier yesterday, and this morning in the premarket, has reached a new high of 24.90 which marks a double-bag move of 102% in just four short weeks!
XNET had a huge similar run from October to November as well, where it topped out at an even $27/share. We’ll continue to monitor the stock in coming sessions, and look for it to retest those previous highs.
