Rite Aid Corp. RAD – Review
We were just talking about RAD in our premarket report from last Friday, and we wanted to close out this week by bring up the very respectable run it has produced. The morning of our report, the stock saw a low of 12.11, and subsequently registered a new high yesterday at 19.22 (+59%). As of the premarket high of 22.44 established in the premarket this morning, we’ve witnessed a one-week run of 85% from Rite Aid.
We’re also going to signal a couple of different sets of options ideas to track in the RAD chain over the next week, and beyond. We’re going to radar the RAD 1/03 $21-23 Calls, as well as the RAD 04/17 $27-30 Calls.
We also wanted to highlight some mega-moves made by stocks we’ve placed on watch recently, once again proving conclusively that options aren’t our only forte.
We tagged Clearside Biomedical, Inc. CLSD in our extended watchlist on October 18th, and witnessed a low of .75 the following day. The stock has been gradually ramping its way up in the several weeks since then, continually registering new highs, of which it hit 3.95 yesterday. That’s an incredible increase of 427%
We put Oncolytics Biotech, Inc. ONCY on watch back on November 14th, and have watched as the stock began to edge its way up, before absolutely exploding over the last week. Our observed range on this one in just over a month has been .82-2.92, a gain of 256%
Many of our longer term readers will remember how significant the gains were out of OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP as we first came across it at the end of 2016 when it went on a mega run from subpenny levels to over 2.00. When it appeared in yesterday’s watchlist it was time to start paying close attention to it again. OWCP made a 94% intraday move yesterday from a low of .028 to a high of .0543. Volume has been ramping up the last few sessions and with this type of momentum, we’ll definitely continue to keep an eye on it.

New Age Beverages Inc. NBEV
Our first order of business this morning is to rehash the performance of NBEV this week, subsequent to our initial alert on the play on Tuesday morning. It was enough of a heads-up to catch the stock at its weekly low of 1.53, which has given way to new highs after a pair of very strong outings.
Yesterday NBEV reached a new high of 2.40, which marks a two-session swing amounting to a respectable 57% We’ll be sure to continue to monitor the situation in the event that the stock parlays its strong start to the short week into an equally convincing finish.
Despite then closing below, the stock has been rebolstered in the premarket, having already traded back as high as yesterday’s peak at 2.40. If this stock can break through the channel of resistance between 2.40-2.58, we could see some more very interesting activity from this play.
Fresh Options Ideas:
We’ve got an earnings related options idea with GIII this morning, and are also taking note of the chart setups on FB and TWTR, which are presently exhibiting double bottom formations as they search for solid support. Each also has a gap to the upside, so we’re going to signal some extended term ideas to track.
GIII 09/21 $45 & 50
FB 10/12 $182.50-190 Calls
TWTR 10/12 $35-37.50 Calls
