AAPL News/Earnings Headlines Exciting Day

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Update

Yesterday morning, AAPL was among our fresh options ideas in our premarket report, as AAPL has a tendency to run into earnings, and was slated for a post-market release. That indeed was the case, and our targets, the  AAPL Weekly $375-377.50 Calls fared reasonably well.

That being said, the party is just getting started, because not only did AAPL blow Q3 earnings expectations out of the water. but the company also announced a 4-for-1 forward split planned for August. Here are the intraday gains made by our targets yesterday, which will be significantly higher once trading commences today:

AAPL Weekly $375-377.50 Calls
$375:
 10.19-15.11 (+48%)
$377.50: 8.80-13.50 (+53%)

AAPL will open at fresh all time highs, and send those contracts soaring. We’re also going to add a few other possible targets to take advantage of the current activity, with the AAPL Weekly $407.50-412.50 Calls* as well as the 08/07 $415 Calls.


More Options Review

We also had ranges of ideas in several other options chains yesterday morning and saw some truly explosive gains. Here are the ranges and total multibag profit opportunities that they provided:

QCOM Weekly $102-104 Calls
$102: 1.05-5.66 (+439%)
$103: .96-4.94 (+415%)
$104: .35-4.00 (+1043%)
_____

PYPL Weekly $190-195 Calls
$190: 2.15-5.15 (+140%)
$192.50: 1.12-3.31 (+196%)
$195: .70-1.96 (+180%)
_____

OSTK Weekly $70-75 Calls
$70:
 1.24-9.50 (+666%)
$75: .60-5.90 (+883%)

The markets in general have a tendency to run when AAPL crushes on earnings, and that could be ready to happen today, leading to added gains in one or more of these plays.

Walmart Deal Sends KNOS Soaring

Kronos Advanced Technologies, Inc. KNOS – Update

We also wanted to circle back around to KNOS, which we have been tracking for quite some time, and updated readers on in Monday’s report. As we mentioned, we had already seen more than a 2000% run beginning with our initial coverage in April, and were anticipating another opportunity to come around after the stock had pulled back to .123 two Fridays ago, and began climbing again. Thanks to a deal with Walmart, we were able to call this one to a tee.

Our exact words were “we will be on the lookout for the stock to test and potentially break past its previous high .24, especially in the light of the following new report out this morning linking the company to Walmart.”

Yesterday, KNOS vindicated our expectations as it hit a new high of .45. That marks a two week upswing of 266% and from our initially observed low of .011 following our April report, it represents an incredible increase of 3990%


FireEye, Inc. FEYE – Update

FireEye was the main earnings reporter that was catching our attention yesterday in the premarket, so we featured a dual pronged options attack with the FEYE Weekly $14-15 Calls & 08/14 $15.50-16 Calls in our premarket report.

Both sets turned out to be excellent calls, even as some of the bigger names on the earnings calendar failed to provide the type of price action we’re always after. Here are the intraday gains provided by the activity in FEYE:

FEYE Weekly $14-15 Calls
$14: .69-2.25 (+226%)
$14.50: .51-1.73 (+239%)
$15: .25-1.30 (+380%)
_____

FEYE 08/14 $15.50-16 Calls
$15.50: .56-1.15 (+105%)
$16: .45-.97 (+116%)

Sun Kissed Industries, Inc. SKDI

We also highlighted SKDI as one to watch in yesterday morning’s premarket Extended Watchlist. The stock put up quite an intraday performance as it traded up from a low of .03, to a high of .16 on the day.

That works out to a single-session gain of 433% and serves as a perfect example of why we always try to include a daily Extended Watchlist, and why we will never quit speculating on the OTC entirely.
