Pivotal Software Inc. PVTL
We’ve been quietly tracking this play for quite some time, and feel it’s just about ready to make a move. As you can see on the included chart, PVTL has sold off after recent earnings, and the stock has found support at a solid double-bottom in the $19-range.
You can also see that PVTL is approaching heavily oversold territory, and the MACD is converging sharply toward a bullish cross, not to mention a sizable gap to the upside. We’re going to want to have a range of options contracts on watch in the days and weeks ahead in the event that the rebound occurs which looks just about due at the present time.
Our targets will be the PVTL 10/19 $19-22 Calls.
Blackberry Ltd. BB
We also want to designate a pair of options contracts for the Blackberry chain this morning on the heels of the company’s Q2 profit beat.
We’ll be looking for a dip-and-rip scenario, which, if it occurs, should produce some significant gain opportunities in the BB Weekly $10 & $10.50 Calls.

Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea
TSLA stock was running hard after KeyBanc analysts predicted a 50% rise in Model 3 deliveries, and we entered the mix yesterday morning with a set of options ideas to take advantage of the situation. We certainly hope that our words didn’t fall upon deaf ears, because of the five contracts in the range we slated for potential quick strike trades, all five produced single-session gains of over 100%
Our designated targets were the TSLA Weekly 337.50-347.50 Calls and we were very impressed with the total potential gains made available by all of those contracts:
$337.50 Calls – Range: 8.00-19.00 – Max Gain: 138%
$340 Calls – Range: 6.76-17.10 – Max Gain: 153%
$342.50 Calls – Range: 5.75-15.16 – Max Gain: 164%
$345 Calls – Range: 4.97-13.50 – Max Gain: 172%
$347.50 Calls – Range: 4.20-11.90 – Max Gain: 183%
From what we’ve seen thus far, we have reason to believe that we may see some further opportunities in these ideas before the week is out, so we’ll allow them to keep their slots on our radar screens for the time being.
H&R Block, Inc. HRB – Fresh Idea
As a fresh options trading idea this morning, we want to bring attention to HRB, which despite turning in a beat on earnings yesterday in the post market, is taking a beating here in early trading.
Combined with the fact that the stock was already looking toppy and about to breach into heavily overbought territory, we’re ready to look at a range of puts, to take advantage of what may be a significant course correction to the low side. We’ll be tracking the HRB Weekly $26-24 Puts.
