Petroleo Brasiliero S.A (Petrobras) PBR – Options
Petrobras continues to be one of our main conduits to making large gains. We were able to carve out another chunk of profits on Friday as the stock hit a new high for us, traversing its way up the chart to peak at 15.92. Considering we picked up on this play in the low $11-range shortly following its 10-year lows back in March, we’d call its performance since then nothing short of amazing.
Of course, our real bread and butter here has been the options chain. Last week was yet another victory for anyone playing the Call side, with every contract we were watching making some nice strides.
In particular, the 07/19 $15 Calls that we’ve been tracking for weeks now have done beautifully, hitting a new high on Friday at 1.25. From the 25-cent low we observed in the week prior, that marks a walloping 400% move!
As we’ve stated before, we will continue to stick with monitoring PBR for as long as it continues to serve us up ripe opportunities for profit.

Intuitive Surgical, Inc. ISRG
ISRG comes back to us this morning as a play that we inserted into our running watchlist back at the beginning of May. On the 6th, we mentioned that the stock could provide us with “potential gains over the next several weeks,” and while it took awhile for things to get moving, that statement still stands.
One of our points of focus was on the ISRG chart were a pair of gap-downs that had transpired in recent weeks, and we’ll still be looking for a break of that first gap to get things started. Presently we’re looking at the Weekly $385-395 Calls for intraday flip opportunities, but if it appears we’re moving to fill the gap, we may need to roll our strike price up.
Provided ISRG does fill in the gap on the chart from roughly $400-415, over the longer-term we could find ourselves looking at The Aug.-Oct. $420-440 Calls.
Solar Wind Energy tower, Inc. SWET
We put SWET on our radar on Friday, and will continue to monitor the stock over the course of the week. The chart is exhibiting signs of ripening, and looks to still be right on the verge of potentially making a nice move, so we want to keep a sharp eye on the activity here as we kick off a new trading week.
The company released some news this morning about a cash infusion they’ve received, and we’re also going to look out for potential updates concerning SWET’s presenting at the NIBA (National Investment Banking Association) conference tomorrow (Tue. 17th).
