MAR Puts, BSGM Updates

Marriot International, Inc. MAR – Update

The markets took a late dive yesterday afternoon, and as they plunged, it helped our bearish idea on MAR realize some nice new gains. We were just reporting on the MAR Weekly $86.50-85 Puts in yesterday’s report, with what were only nominal gains at the time. Today the figures are looking far more impressive.

Even after the company’s CEO somewhat brashly called MAR stock ‘a bottom’, traders did not agree as it took a considerable hit and headed lower. That produced the following opportunities in our targeted puts;

MAR Weekly $86.50-85 Puts
2.80-7.00 (+150%)
$86:2.70-6.60 (+144%)
$85.50: 2.20-5.02 (+128%)
$85: 2.13-5.97 (+180%)

ALC Weekly $55-57.50 Calls
PGTI Weekly $10 Calls
CYBR Weekly $107-104 Puts

BioSig Technologies, Inc. BSGM

We have been tracking BSGM pretty closely this spring, and the stock has put together an incredible performance. Subsequent to our alert of this play roughly 5 weeks ago on April 7th, it registered a low of 3.45/share. The company has been doing trials for potential coronavirus treatments with the drugs Merimepodib and Remdesivir.

After stacking gains on top of gains and essentially going up continuously with very few daily exceptions, BSGM arrived at a new high of 12.43 yesterday. That represents an increase of 260% in just over a month’s time!

We will certainly continue to track BSGM’s progress and keep our ears to the track for any further developments in the company’s quest for a viable COVID-19 treatment.

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.

$290:  2.14-8.60 (+305%)
$289: 1.84-7.75 (+321%)
$288: 1.54-7.00 (+355%)
