We formulated a fresh idea yesterday morning for the PEP options chain and found some instant success there. We also want to track back to an idea we hashed out for ROKU a couple of weeks ago, on the morning of Sept. 23rd, and the performance it has recorded since then.
PepsiCo, Inc. PEP Weekly $134-136 Calls
$134 Calls – Range: 2.92-5.75 – Max Gain: 97%
$135 Calls – Range: 2.10-4.60 – Max Gain: 119%
$136 Calls – Range: 1.38-3.85 – Max Gain: 107%
ROKU 11/01 $115-118 Calls

$117 Calls – Range: 2.82-4.90 – Max Gain: 74%
$118 Calls – Range: 2.50-4.06 – Max Gain: 62%
Fresh Options Idea:
SDPR S&P500 (ETF) SPY Weekly $289-291 Calls
Ocugen, Inc. OCGN
We also want to designate OCGN as a bottom-watch play this morning. The stock recently became NASDAQ-trading after a merger with Histogenics, and the PPS fell off a cliff.
OCGN is currently hanging around just above the two dollar level here in the premarket, and we will be tracking its movements over the next few sessions to see if it can pick up some steam as a bottom-bouncer.
We released a Special Report on CBNT (Click here to view) Wednesday morning, and the stock made a solid 30% move up yesterday. We’re going to continue tracking this nanotech play. Stay tuned for updates.
BHGE, SRPT, PHUN, AVYA, RNG, NAKD, SONO, YUMA
We dedicated yesterday’s premarket newsletters to our Special Report, so we wanted to circle back this morning to go over a couple of options ideas we submitted to our readers on Tuesday morning.
We had identified plays in the ULTA and MKC options chains following a Form-4 Alert and an earnings report, respectively, and in both cases we met with fantastic multi-bag gain opportunities. Here were the total possible profits on the table:
ULTA 11/01 $260-265 Calls
$260 Calls – Range: 4.00-13.30 – Max Gain: 233%
$262.50 Calls – Range: 2.60-12.50 – Max Gain: 381%
$265 Calls – Range: 2.80-11.25 – Max Gain: 302%
MKC Weekly $155-160 Calls
$155 Calls – Range: 5.58-13.58 – Max Gain: 143%
$160 Calls – Range: 2.82-9.12 – Max Gain: 223%
Fresh Options Idea:
PEP Weekly $134-136 Calls
American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. ARA
We also want to place ARA on watch as a possible bottom bounce play. The stock has never been much lower than where it’s currently trading, has a recently history of sharp spikes, and indications that a significant rebound could be on the way. We’ll keep an eye peeled for such activity over the next several sessions.
CBNT, CLVS, ARQL, BIOC, HYRE, MEET
PepsiCo, Inc. PEP
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.
