Winning Options Review:
We were pleased to start off the short trading week with a bang yesterday, getting right back on track with a couple of options trading ideas that netted some good intraday gain opportunities for anyone who was paying attention. The markets ripped all day long, so it was definitely a good time to go bullish on the SPY.
We did so with the SPY 06/21 $369-371 Calls, and we also stuck in an idea for the one earnings play that stood out to us on the day, the LEN Weekly $64-66 Calls. In both cases, the potential profits reach multibag territory. Those moves were as follows:
SPY 06/21 $369-371 Calls
$369: 3.76-7.43 (+98%)
$370: 2.88-6.52 (+126%)
$371: 2.59-5.50 (+112%)
LEN Weekly $64-66 Calls
$64: 1.90-4.03 (+112%)
$65: 1.88-4.00 (+113%)
$66: 1.05-3.23 (+208%)
Fresh Options Ideas:
We’re in the midst of an earnings drought that is going to persist for at least a few more weeks, but we’re still trucking right along, working with what we’ve got. Today’s earnings play that stands out in the premarket is from the Winnebago chain, while we’ve also noticed some insider buying near the bottom on NLOK.
WGO 07/15 $45-50 Calls
NLOK 07/15 $24-25 Calls
FL 07/15 $31-32 Calls

It’s a challenging time to be navigating the daily ins and outs of the current economic environment, especially with a dearth of big name earnings on the docket, but we have still been managing quite well, all things considered. Two of our three options targets went for some nice gains yesterday, and in addition to those, we have updated on a couple of longer term plays that have come into some really solid moves.
Yesterday’s winning targets from our premarket report were the ADBE Weekly $372.50-370 Puts, and the KR Weekly $51-49.50 Puts, so we’ll have the intraday figures on those for you below. Both of the other plays from past reports expire today as well, and the moves below represent the overall increases we’ve observed since formulating the ideas. It was our report on Friday the 3rd when we signaled the ASAN 06/17 $22.50 Puts, and Tuesday the 7th when we put the GTLB 06/17 $40-45 Calls on our radar.
ADBE Weekly $372.50-370 Puts

REV, ATHX, MREO, KZIA, ELMS, BLBX, IMPP, SYSX, HIRU, VGID, RTON,
General Mills, Inc. GIS – We were looking at the General Mills chain beginning
on Wednesday morning, when we designated the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls as targets of interest for the week. We got some very nice profit opportunities out of that set, with plenty of time for the possibility to realize further gains. The $47.50 Calls rose from a low of 1.40-3.55, an upswing of 154% The $50’s traded in a range from .27-1.47, which works out to a huge jump of 444%
Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI – On Thursday morning, we added the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls to our pool of ideas, and those really made a splash as well. In the two session span following our alert, we witnessed a move up from a low of 1.15 to a high of 4.30. That represents a rapid increase of 274%
Revlon, Inc. REV – Finally, on Friday, we continued our streak of new ideas with an extended-term idea on Revlon. A pair of big insider buys was what led us to place these on watch. We’ll continue to track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls. For Friday, they each managed modest increases, with the $22.50’s running from 2.55-2.90 (+14%) and the $25’s going from 1.25-2.00 (+60%). These will be on our radar for quite some time, but got off to a nice start.
