We included a pair of options ideas in yesterday’s premarket report, and scored multi-bag hits on both accounts.
We were banking on a third straight bullish day for the markets with our SPY idea, and betting that the huge premarket gap-up on SFIX was unsustainable. In both cases we were correct, and it provided us with the following opportunities:
SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $283-284 Calls
$283 Calls – Range: .98-2.81 – Max Gain: 187%
$284 Calls – Range: .57-2.00 – Max Gain: 251%
Today we will be looking to roll up our strike price on the SPY and tracking the SPY Weekly $285-286 Calls*.
Stitch Fix, Inc. SFIX Weekly $31-30 Puts
$30 Puts – Range: 1.40-3.22 – Max Gain: 130%
*Never trade weekly options on Friday, unless you are an advanced level trader with access to disposable funds!
At Home Group, Inc. HOME
HOME just missed on earnings and received an analyst downgrade, but on the hunch that the resultant gap-down was based on overreaction, we’re going to radar a set of contracts in the HOME chain to monitor in the event of a rebound. There is an enormous gap now sitting on the chart just waiting to be filled. We’ll have plenty of time to see that happen with the HOME 09/20 $8-10 Calls.
AMPG, FTD, SNY, RWLK, LJPC, HAIR
As we very often do, we put forth some fresh options trading ideas for our report yesterday morning, and experienced good fortune with those as the session played out. Our ideas for both Dominos Pizza and eBay each panned out quite nicely, giving traders a solid chance at some serious multi-bag profits on the day.
Dominos Pizza, Inc. DPZ 05/17 $290-300 Calls
$290 Calls – Range: 6.43-16.75 – Max Gain: 160%
$300 Calls – Range: 3.22-10.05 – Max Gain: 212%
Ebay, Inc. EBAY Weekly $37.50-38.50 Calls
$37.50 Calls – Range: .61-1.30 – Max Gain: 113%
$386 Calls – Range: .33-.95 – Max Gain: 188%
$38.50 Calls – Range: .18-.59 – Max Gain: 212%
FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS:
Facebook, Inc. FB Weekly $195-200 Calls
Microsoft Corp. MSFT Weekly $129-132 Calls
ServiceNow, Inc. NOW Weekly $255-257.50 Calls
Midatech Pharma plc MTP
Following its inclusion in our extended watchlist yesterday morning, MTP made a solid intraday run that we wanted to recap this morning. The stock traded in a range from a low of 2.95 on up to 3.86. That was good for total possible intraday gains of up to 31%
We’ll continue to keep an eye peeled for further gains on MTP, which recently surged to more than $10 just last month. The potential for the kind of extreme volatility we look for is certainly there.
ARCI, RWLK, LAZ, CTRV
UnitedHealth Group Inc UNH
As we near the midway point of this holiday-shortened week, we are going to be taking a look at a fresh earnings related options idea with UnitedHealth.
The company just posted an impressive across-the-board earnings beat, while the chart itself was already in a prime bottom-bounce position. We are going to track the UNH Weekly $232.50-237.50 Calls, which should be in very good shape if events play out as expected.
Fastenal, Inc. FAST
We also signaled the FAST 04/18 $62.50-67.50 Calls, last Thursday following the company’s own earnings beat. The moves we’ve observed since then have been moderate, but still impressive nonetheless.
$62.50 Calls – Range: 5.40-7.10 – Max Gain: 31%
$65 Calls – Range: 2.40-4.80 – Max Gain: 100%
$67.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.43 – Max Gain: 121%
Fresh Options Idea:
Senior Housing Properties Trust SNH 06/21 $10 Calls
