NVAX Update & More

Novavax, Inc. NVAX – Review
.
Among all of the plays we’ve covered this year with coronavirus synergies, one of the top picks has definitely been NVAX. We began tracking this stock back in May, with our first mention coming on May 12th. On that day, NVAX changed hands for as little as 36.08. The stock basically never looked back, with that being the lowest price it will have seen since then.

Yesterday, after roughly seven weeks of continuous upward momentum, NVAX has attained a new high of 111.77. That works out to an overall rise of 210% in a span of less than two months! That’s a good move for any stock, but for one that was already above $35, it’s nothing short of amazing.


Options Ideas: 

We have been in a dark period for big name earnings for at least a couple of weeks now, but we are starting to see some large caps reporting again today. The two that are catching our eye most off of the current calendar are SMART Global Holdings, Inc. SGH and The Simply Good Foods Co. SMPL. Both companies posted a convincing beat of expectations on the street.

Here are a couple of corresponding ideas that we can track today and into next week:

SGH 07/17 $25-30 Calls
SMPL 07/17 $22.50-25 Calls

The Simply Good Foods Co. SMPL – 
Options Review 
.
On Thursday morning, SMPL was among the fresh options trading targets that we had mentioned in our premarket report.  We were looking specifically at the SMPL 08/21 $20-22.50 Calls.

Despite it being one of our relatively rare longer-term swing-trade ideas, with tons of time remaining until expiration, we did see some early gains right off the bat from those plays as the week drew to a close.

08/21 $20-22.50 Calls
$20: 1.50-2.20 (+47%)
$22.50: .70-1.30 (+86%)

We’ll certainly continue to have these targets on watch in the weeks and months ahead, it was good to see some instantaneous opportunity arise.

AxoGen Inc. AXGN – Form-4 Alert

We would also like to make mention of AXGN this morning. which we caught sight of during a routine Form-4 scan. We’ve got the CEO picking up shares and adding to his already considerable position just as the stock was preparing to register new annual lows.

We generally like to put stocks in this situation on watch, and will be anxiously awaiting the company’s quarterly results due in roughly two weeks.
