We formulated two fresh ideas in our premarket report from yesterday morning, and not surprisingly, both returned some excellent chances for multibag intraday gains early on in the day.
We highlighted the Apple, Inc. AAPL Weekly $207.50-210 Calls on the heels of the company’s quarterly earnings report, and got a serious push right out of the starting gate.$207.50 Calls – Range: 3.00-8.00 – Max Gain: 167% $210 Calls – Range: 1.72-5.70 – Max Gain: 231%
Additionally, we slated the CVS Corp. CVS Weekly $56-58 Calls for observation, and those gain opportunities were quite noteworthy as well. All five contracts in our designated range produced some serious chances to gains on the day.
$56 Calls – Range: .91-1.80 – Max Gain: 98% $56.50 Calls – Range: .36-1.11 – Max Gain: 208% $57 Calls – Range: .44-1.03 – Max Gain: 134% $57.50 Calls – Range: .28-.70 – Max Gain: 150% $58 Calls – Range: .15-.47 – Max Gain: 213%
FRESH OPTIONS IDEA:
Under Armour, Inc. UAA Weekly $22.50-24.50 Calls
Precipio, Inc. PRPO – Recap
We initially put PRPO on watch a few weeks ago on the 10th of April, and over that short span we;ve seen some really nice swings out of the stock that we wanted to come back and highlight this morning.
Following our original alert, the stock was trading for as little as 3.75 before making a run to 9.31, which represents a gain of 148% It subsequently pulled back to a low of 4.23, before making its way back to 8.60 yesterday. That second distinct move amounts to an upswing of 103%
Pepsi had a solid across the board beat following its premarket earnings release yesterday, and we seized opportunity to include the PEP Weekly $124-125 Calls in our morning report.
A five-dollar intraday run by the stock allowed for some very nice opportunities to profit in our pair of targets. The $124 Calls ran from .72-3.40 for a big 372% rip, while the $125′s traded from .32 to 2.45; a gain of 666%
Verb Technology, Inc. VERB
This stock is a newcomer to the NASDAQ, having only recently uplisted from the OTCQB, which has been the subject of a selloff over the past six weeks. That was kicked into another gear earlier this month when the company announced that its move to the NASDAQ would be accompanied by a $20M offering at roughly half the market price at the time.
Now that it has fallen well below the offering price, and indicators are suggesting a rebound may be in order, we are going to flag this play for observation in the days and weeks ahead.
FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS
United Rentals Inc. URI Weekly $134-136 Calls
Union Pacific Corp. UNP $167.50-175 Calls
The first thing that jumped out to us on this morning’s routine market scan was GBX. The only company on the earnings calendar with a market cap of more than a billion dollars, it’s also boasting an attractive bottom setup on the chart.
We’re going to tag the GBX 04/18 $30-35 Calls for observation, which gives us a couple of weeks to see more a rebound from the stock, which just began to rise off of in recent;y established 52-lows. ______
We also will be placing another recently struggling stock in NSPR on bottom watch this morning. With it just having registered new 52-week lows yesterday, it would appear there may be slightly further to fall before a rebound is imminent, if we look at the indicators, but we’ll start tracking it now.
The stock was trading at twice this amount barely over a month ago, so the potential for rapidly recovery is also there.
*As always when we signal options expiring the same day of our report, we must insist that you NOT attempt any of these trades unless you are an advanced level trader with access to disposable funds!
Qudian, Inc. QD
We’re looking at a potential bottom-play in QD as we kick off the week also, which as you can see on the following snapshot, has a ripening chart at the moment. The company reported earnings this morning, which beat expectations, while revenues fell slightly short.
The stock could be setting up for another run at the $7.00 range or better, so we’re going to begin monitoring QD in upcoming sessions.
Things move pretty fast around here, but we do our best to keep up with tracking on all of the stocks we mention in our daily reports. In certain cases, we see slow buildup, and in others we see a quick rocket to new highs, but in the case of RIOT, we actually got both.
After we highlighted our interest in RIOT roughly two months ago on December 19th, it had been on a rather steady climb, until Friday when the lid blew off the top. Our observed low subsequent to our mention of the stock was 1.29, and Friday’s new high came in at 4.24. That’s a gain of 229% in a span of just eight weeks!
Bristow Group, Inc. BRS
We also wanted to quickly highlight a bottom-bouncer with some real potential to the upside. We ran across BRS this morning, noticing that it had just produced some activity off of a relative bottom.
There is a gap to fill on thwe chart and room to run for some potentially solid gains, so we’ll be keeping an eye peeled for that as we kick off a fresh trading week.
