Thursday’s Runner Recap, 4 Fresh Plays to End the Week

Solid Thursday Outing:

We were very pleased with how things shook out for our daily options trading targets yesterday. We formulated a slate of three possible plays in our premarket report for the day, and all three returned solid figures for us. We’ve perhaps had less of a volume of interesting earnings reporters to go off of this week in comparison to the previous few, but we’ve certainly managed to produce some nice winners in spite of that fact.

Yesterday’s daily runners were the NVDA Weekly $1010 Calls, the ELF Weekly $160-162.50 Calls, and the NTES Weekly $195 Puts. The multibag gains they posted on the day were as follows:

NVDA Weekly $1010 Calls
 14.62-54.50 (+273%)

ELF Weekly $160-162.50 Calls
$160: 8.28-30.40 (+267%)
$162.50: 10.34-26.88 (+160%)

NTES Weekly $195 Puts
$195: .65-1.30 (+100%)

Ascent Solar Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI) – Recap:

We tagged ASTI in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist and the stock made a pretty good intraday move for the session. We saw it run from a low of .19 on up to .34, which represents an upswing of 79%

Midweek Movers, 3 Potential Plays

Wednesday’s Performance:

Things went reasonably well for us on Wednesday. We loaded up with four potential plays in our premarket report for the session, and three of them returned positive results. We get things right such a majority of the time, that we have to simply accept when the rare occasion comes along that we miss on an idea. For yesterday’s report, that was Williams-Sonoma, but thankfully there were plenty of opportunities in our other three selections.

Our tags for the day that did experience intraday upswings were the URBN Weekly $42 Calls, the TJX Weekly $99-100 Calls, and the TGT Weekly $144-142 Puts, and the biggest runs off of those plays were as follows:

URBN Weekly $42 Calls
 .05-.10 (+100%)

TJX Weekly $99-100 Calls
 2.44-6.08 (+149%)
$100: 1.74-5.00 (+187%)

TGT Weekly $144-142 Puts
 .73-1.99 (+173%)
$143: .48-1.50 (+212%)
$142: .30-1.02 (+240%)

Ending Another Great Trading Week on a High Note

On the Brink of Another Flawless Weekly Run:

As we were mentioning in yesterday morning’s report, we are right on the cusp of stringing together the second consecutive week without missing on a single options idea. We took the next-to-last step yesterday by putting up a list of five possible options plays, all five of which produced notable intraday upswings. That brings it down to today, and with another nice group of earnings reporters with new figures out this morning, there’s a solid chance that we will complete this second weekly sweep of perfection.

Yesterday’s targets, nearly all bearish in nature, were the PANW Weekly $245-240 Puts, the WMT $162.50-157.50 Puts, the BABA Weekly $82-80 Puts, the NTES Weekly $115-110 Puts and the NICE Weekly $190 Calls, and here we have the performances they exhibited for the day:
