Wal-Mart Stores, inc. WMT – Options Review
We signaled a wide range of options contracts in the Wal Mart chain yesterday, the WMT Weekly $92-96 Calls, and every single one of them produced the opportunity for huge single session gains. It was a post-earnings beat idea, and those have a tendency to work well in our favor.
WMT made a considerable move which allowed for multi-bag gains regardless of which strike price was selected. Those potential profits were as follows:
$92 Calls – Range: 2.55-7.40 – Max Gain: 190%
$92.50 Calls – Range: 2.13-7.15 – Max Gain: 236%
$93 Calls – Range: 1.42-6.58 – Max Gain: 363%
$94 Calls – Range:1.03-5.53 – Max Gain: 437%
$95 Calls – Range: .60-4.50 – Max Gain: 650%
$96 Calls – Range: .23-3.50 – Max Gain: 1421%
It appears as if WMT could keep this train rolling today, so we may look to roll up to the WMT Weekly $98-100 Calls* to stay close to the money.
Fresh Options Ideas:
We also want to put a few contracts from the Foot Locker and Verizon chains on watch today. Footlocker currently has a ripe bottom-play setup happening on the chart, while Verizon is another post-earnings beat idea.
FL Weekly $38-42 Calls*
VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls
* Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s just about as risky as it gets.
