Big Gainers to Report

Solid Options Plays 

More often than not, when we signal groups of calls or puts, we see success with our ideas. In the case of yesterday morning’s premarket report, we signaled one set of each, and saw instant returns on both.

Our targets were WDAY Weekly $172.50-177.50 Calls & HPQ Weekly $17-16 Puts, with each range containing three sets of contracts. All six ran considerably, with five out of the six logging double-bag gains or better! here were the total possible gains to which our readers had access:

WDAY Weekly $172.50-177.50 Calls  
$172.50: 6.83-14.48 (+64%)
$175: 4.70-11.95 (+93%)
$177.50: 3.90-9.54 (+93%)

Stock Recaps 

 We’ve also seen some nice gains on the stock side of things this week, and yesterday brought more success on that front as well.

Indoor Harvest Corp. INQD – We tagged INQD in yesterday’s extended watchlist, and this subpenny OTC play posted a modest but respectable move from .0046-.007, marking an intraday gain of 52%

Party City Holdco Inc. PRTY – We have to go back a few weeks to our report on the morning of May 4th to find our initial alert on PRTY. Since then we’ve seen the stock trading for as little as .43. It has been climbing steadily over the past several sessions, reaching a new high of 2.10 yesterday. That works out to an overall increase of 388%

Brewbilt MFG Inc. BBRW – We also saw BBRW make a big run from .03-.0899 for a 199% gain!

Looking for a Big Start to the Week

The Clorox Co. CLX – Recap

Our sole fresh options trading idea on Friday was in the CLX chain and came on the heels of the company’s earnings drop. Bleach definitely has a big role to play during the coronavirus pandemic based on a need to keep surfaces as disinfected as possible, making this a high synergy play.

The single-session gains our idea produced during Friday’s session are certainly indicative of that, with huge multi-bag rips across the board:

CLX Weekly $190-195 Calls
$190: .90-7.50 (+733%)
$192.50:  .63-5.69 (+801%)
$195: .41-3.33 (+712%)

We also have the final highs and total ranges on the group of SPY Puts that we signaled in Thursday morning’s premarket report. Those also turned out to be a great success, with two-day moves which also reached multi-bag status.

SPY 05/04 $291-288 Puts
$291: 2.49-9.50 (+282%)
$290:  2.14-8.60 (+305%)
$289: 1.84-7.75 (+321%)
$288: 1.54-7.00 (+355%)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom Watch Plays

Activision Blizzard, Inc. ATVI

Despite beating on earnings in its postmarket release yesterday afternoon, ATVI reported fewer monthly active subscribers, and the stock has taken a gut punch as a result, falling to new annual lows in the mid-$50’s. The stock hasn’t seen a PPS this low since last December, and it went on to have a post-holiday run into March of this year, and yet another in the spring.

While we don’t expect an exact repeat of history, at present the stock is highly oversold, and we want to set up a longer-term recovery play to place on watch today and monitor going forward. We’ll be looking at the ATVI 01/18 $55-62.50 Calls for this purpose.


Bunge Ltd. BG

We’ve also taken notice of an interesting setup on BG, which has been recently trading at a double bottom, and whose CEO just picked up nearly a hundred million dollars worth of the stock here at these lows. He was also joined by another insider which submitted a pair of Form-4’s for the purchase of roughly $40M.

That’s an incredibly large bet on the part of the company’s leader, far out of the realm of simply trying to prop up his company’s stock. To invest that kind of money, would seem to imply a firm inside belief that BG won’t go much lower than what we’ve seen in the past week or so. We’ll place this stock on a Form-4 Bottom Watch moving forward, and monitor for the possibility of a nice rebound.
