Apple, Inc. AAPL
AAPL has been very good to us recently as the stock pushes ever-higher. The last (and only) time AAPL has ever been this highly valued was back in late 2012. We’ve squeezed a lot of life out of AAPL Calls, and should the current trend continue, this may only be the beginning.
During yesterday’s session AAPL surged as high as 649.3699, just shy of a big psychological barrier. If we can see a break of that $650-mark, we could easily see another 10-point day from Apple. Failure to crack through that mark may result in a consolidation, but nothing of what we’ve seen from this stock lately suggests that the party’s over.
We’ve still got our eyes on the Call side of the options chain as we cruise into the weekend; and as you know, AAPL will undergo a 7-for-1 forward split effective on Monday, greatly increasing its number of shares. It is thought that the calculated move will make the stock accessible to more investors, and we expect AAPL to be trading just under $100 following the split, so that could very well be the case.
We’ll see where it lands, and our strategies will be very much the same as they are now, just at lower prices. We also have the launch of the new iPhone to look forward to, although there’s no concrete date on that yet. Speculation over its new features is something we expect to continue driving up the stock’s value until the product is launched.
All in all, this summer could be a big one for Apple, and we’ll be following along every step of the way, using options to leverage big gains for ourselves as we’ve done so many times in the past.
TransGlobal Assets, Inc. TMSH
On Wednesday, we tagged TMSH in our extended watchlist, and we were glad to have done so. The stock has provided us with a nice 50% move from .006-.009 this week. As you can see on the chart below, there are a lot of positives, including an impending golden cross, so we’re still going to be very interested to see what can happen with this play moving forward.
The key resistance area is yesterday high at the .009-mark, and a break of that level would send us into Blue Sky Breakout mode, so we want to keep a close watch on TMSH heading into next week.
