Trio of New Options Ideas

Fresh Options Trifecta

We’ve got a trio of new options ideas to present this morning. Facebook and Starbucks just reported earnings yesterday in the post-market, and we have significant Form-4 buys at a bottom on TNET.

We have formulated an options idea for all of those chains. Some quick-strike plays for our earnings reporters, and a longer-term look for the Form-4:

TriNet Group, Inc. TNET 12/20 $55 Calls
Facebook, Inc. FB Weekly $190-195 Calls
Starbucks Corp. SBUX Weekly $85.50-87 Calls 


Visium Technologies, Inc. VISM

Just a reminder for those of our readers who may not have caught yesterday’s report. We initiated three moths of coverage on VISM, and compiled an introductory report on the company in lieu of our regular morning report.

We would strongly suggest that our readers peruse that report if you didn’t already. The stock is still at a relative bottom as a high sub-penny, compared to the penny-plus marks it has been hitting recently. The potential for near-term gains of at least 100% is definitely present, and we don’t want anyone to miss out. Stay tuned for future reports going into further detail on VISM.

Fresh Options Ideas:

There appears to be a lot going on this morning as we start off another trading week. We’re going to dive right into the action with a variety of fresh new ideas:

TSEM Weekly $18-20 Calls
BAH Weekly $65-75 Calls
GRUB Weekly $77.50-79 Calls
MYL Weekly $21-22.50 Calls


Tenet Healthcare Corp. THC 

We began talking about THC on Wednesday morning, and tracking its options chain. Over the final three days of last week the stock made a major move on the chart, which facilitated eye popping options trading opportunities.

The stock itself ran from a low of 17.32 on Wednesday to 22.13 on Friday. That represents a three-day swing of 28% That move allowed one of our options targets, the $18 Calls, to make one of the largest percentage moves we’ve identified so far this year. From a low of .10, they soared to 3.59, which works out to a total possible gain of 3490% in a THREE DAY period!

Other Updates 

Fuel Cell Energy Inc. FCEL – We wanted to mention the bottom bounce candidate we tagged in yesterday’s watchlist. It was looking ripe for another rebound and we ultimately saw the beginnings of that.

The stock traded up from a daily low of .365, and reached a high of .4926. That works out to an intraday move of 35% and a good start for a play that we’re going to continue to track.


____

Tautachrome, Inc. TTCM – Has made repeat appearances in our reports recently, because of the solid intraday volatility it has been bringing to the table and yesterday was no exception.

The stock had another nice bounce back with a range of .0161-.0245, representing a daily move of 52%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SBUX Success & More

Starbucks Corp. SBUX – Recap

We formulated some options ideas for Friday morning’s premarket report, and among them were the SBUX Weekly $66-67.50 Calls. Continuing a trend that we carried throughout the week, we once again struck upon multi-bag gains off of an earnings related play. This type of trade has become one of our go-to moves for this very good reason. We urge any skeptics to rifle through our blog and check our record on this. We believe our success rate is unparalleled.

$66 Calls – Range:.65-1.65 – Max Gain: 154%
$66.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.35 – Max Gain: 238%
$67 Calls – Range: .22-.80 – Max Gain: 264%
$67.50 Calls – Range: .10-.49 – Max Gain: 390%
_____

We also had the WDC Weekly $43.50-45 Calls in Friday’s report, and despite the fact that only the $43.50’s ended up being in play, the potential gains they afforded traders were exceptional. They traded up from a low of .03 all the way up to .26- a move of 767% on the day.


Caterpillar, Inc. CAT

We’ll once again look to a premarket earnings release to provide us with the impetus for a fresh idea this morning. Caterpillar missed on profits and issued unimpressive guidance, as the company reported disappointingly low demand, specifically in the Chinese market.

We are going to take a bearish view on this for the near-term, and put the CAT Weekly $132-128 Puts on watch to kick off the fresh trading week.

Briggs & Stratton Corp. BGG

We want to close things out this week by commenting on Briggs & Stratton’s gap down to its lowest PPS since the the early 1990’s. While it may see more short term losses first, we still want to radar this as a bottom-watch play.
