Ending the Week on a High Note, 3 New Ideas

Recapping Wednesday’s Winners:

We’re closing out this short trading week in our favorite way, by reporting another clean sweep of our options trading board from yesterday morning’s premarket report. We had formed five potential plays for our readers’ consideration, and we saw some really nice multibag intraday runs posted. It’s the best way to finish up with the final report of the week, and we hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend!

Yesterday’s runners were the DNUT 04/19 $17.50 Calls, the MRK Weekly $131-132 Calls, the GME Weekly $13-12 Puts, the CTAS 04/19 $660-680 Calls and the NCNO 04/19 $35-40 Calls. Here are the intraday moves they recorded, only a couple of which fell short of the double-bag mark, and with one target actually a exceeding one thousand percent rip on the day:

FIFTY-Bagger on Friday:

Our options performance on Friday was pretty good, with four out of the five possible targets we designated in our premarket report for the day registering some nice gains. In one case, we even saw an astonishing (and exceedingly rare) gainer of over 5000%!

That amazing run came from the GCT Weekly $40 Calls, and the other runners for the session were the ADBE Weekly $510-500 Puts, the COIN Weekly $227.50-222.50 Puts, and the MARA Weekly $18.50-18 Puts. Here were the intraday figures on all those plays:

GCT Weekly $40 Calls

Fresh Options Ideas:

Today we’ve got a pair of quick strike targets for immediate possible action, as well as a pair of longer-term plays with an April expiration that could make for interesting swing trade opportunities in the days and weeks ahead.

A Winning Wednesday, 4 New Targets

Hot Streak Continues Wednesday:

We had another really solid outing on Wednesday, continuing a run of excellent options ideas for the week. We had a triplet of potential plays in our premarket report for the day, and all of them turned in some fairly impressive performances on the day. Especially our target in the SPY, which went on a really nice intraday tear immediately following the fed meeting, and into the close.

Those ideas we were tracking were the SPY 12/13 $465 Calls, the ABM Weekly $45 Calls, and the AMD Weekly $137-139 Calls, and here are the intraday runs they logged:

SPY 12/13 $465 Calls
 .90-5.83 (+548%)

ABM Weekly $45 Calls
$45: 2.90-7.30 (+152%)

AMD Weekly $137-139 Calls
$137: 2.20-3.90 (+77%)
$138: 1.74-3.10 (+78%)
$139: 1.02-1.95 (+91%)

Fresh Options Ideas:
ADBE Weekly $590-600 Calls

SPY 12/14 $472-473 Calls*

Star Alliance International Corp. STAL – Update:

We’ve recently been tracking STAL closely, and on Monday morning we mentioned that we would want to see STAL hold support in the .004-.005 range to continue to hold our interest. It did just that, maintaining support at a low of .0045 on Tuesday, and running back to .0085 yesterday. That worked out to a two-day swing of 89%

C4 Therapeutics, Inc. – Recap:

 Another stock that we flagged in yesterday’s extended watchlist was CCCC, which posted an impressive intraday run on the heels of some positive phase 1 trial data, and news of an exclusive licensing agreement with pharma giant MRK. We saw a single session rip from 3.16-6.03 out of this stock, which represents a 91% upswing.
