ULTA Options Review, OTC Runner & More

Winning Options Recap: 

On Friday morning, we were marveling at the performance of all of the excellent options ideas we floated to our readers last week, with nearly every signal we made yielding chances for sizable quick-strike gains.

We ended the week with two final options target suggestions, and unsurprisingly, we hit on both of those as well. Our interests were the ULTA Weekly $335-345 Calls, and the CRM Weekly $232.50-237.50 Calls. ULTA was the favorite by a nose, but they both produced significant chances for intraday profit.

Here are the figures on the ranges and total possible gains on the table for those plays: 

ULTA Weekly $335-345 Calls
$335: 8.69-15.70 (+81%)
$337.50: 7.77-14.40 (+85%)
$340: 5.33-12.90 (+142%)
$342.50: 4.10-9.65 (+135%)
$345: 2.93-8.05 (+175%)

CRM Weekly $232.50-237.50 Calls

$232.50: 6.28-9.82 (+53%)
$235: 4.00-7.50 (+87%)
$237.50: 2.24-5.07 (+126%)


Fresh Options Ideas:

This morning we are going to signal a longer-term set of calls for NGM, which is searching for a bottom at the present time. When the inevitable rebound occurs, there is a massive $10 gap on the chart to the upside which could pave the way for a nice rebound play in the NGM 07/16 $15-17.50 Calls.

We’ll also watch the CAN 06/18 $7.50-10.00 Calls, the KIRK 06/18 $25-27.50 Calls, and the CLDR Weekly $15-16 Calls on the heels of the three companies’ earnings drops this morning.

Retail Earnings Opportunities

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL – Recap: 

This morning we’re updating readers on the fresh options idea from yesterday. Just to give a heads up, this idea appeared in our report yesterday as Weekly calls, which was in error. The next expiration date on any existing CBRL options is June 18th, so we’re talking about the CBRL 06/18 $155-165 Calls.

Those fared quite well on the day despite three weeks remaining until their expiry. Here are the intraday gains they recorded:

CBRL 06/18 $155-165 Calls 
$155: 4.40-6.68 (+52%)
$160: 2.45-4.40 (+80%)
$165: 1.25-2.40 (+92%)

Based on premarket activity this morning, it appears as if CBRL may be preparing to gap up, and as a result we may see further advances in these contract sets. We’re going to want to continue to monitor their activity into June 18th.


Fresh Options Ideas:

Despite a general decrease in the number of daily earnings reporters, we’ve got a fair few retail giants dropping figures this morning, and we’ll venture a target for the SPY as well.

URBN Weekly $37-39 Calls
ANF Weekly $39-40.50 Calls
DKS Weekly $88-91 Calls 

SPY 05/26 $418-420 Calls
