Black Friday Short Week Wrap-Up

Short Week Wrap-Up

We hope everyone enjoyed the midweek Thanksgiving break, and as we gear up to finish out the week with what we expect to be a relatively subdued half-day of trading, we just wanted to highlight the potential gains off of our fresh options ideas from Wednesday’s premarket report.

The session was majorly bullish for stocks as a whole, so our SPY calls were spot on and worked out very nicely, and we saw significant intraday gain opportunities from our targets in the BOX chain as well.

Here are the total daily gains that were on the table for these ideas:

SPY Weekly $314-315 Calls 
$314 Calls – Range: .55-1.43 – Max Gain: 160%
$314.50 Calls – Range: .23-.94 – Max Gain: 309%
$315 Calls – Range: .09-.50 – Max Gain: 456%

$16 Calls – Range: 1.80-2.90 – Max Gain: 61%
$17 Calls – Range: .95-1.91 – Max Gain: 101%


Fresh Options Idea

The earnings calendar is fairly empty this morning, but we did spot a potential play on the GIL chart. The stock is about to begin to fill a massive gap on the chart, while having just received an analyst upgrade.

We are going to put the Gildan Activewear, Inc. GIL 01/17 $25-35 Calls on watch for what could be a huge opportunity in the coming weeks.

Options Movers & More


AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Update

We want to backtrack to the options idea we offered up to our readers on Monday morning. We focused on longer-term targets, but the results have already begun to show after what has been a solid week of gains for the stock itself. .

Our contracts of interest are the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls. So far, we’ve seen significant upward movement in the $10’s and $12.50’s, and if current trends continue, we expect the $15’s to join the party soon enough.

Here are the total possible gains from our ideas so far:

$10 Calls – Range: 1.50-2.20 – Max Gain: 47%
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%

The stock is still incredibly oversold and undervalued, so we’d be very surprised if we didn’t see more of its massive topside gap filled in the days and weeks ahead. Stay tuned for further updates on this one.


McDonalds Corp. MCD – Update 

MdDonalds is another chain in which we recently put some longer-term contracts on watch. On Thursday of last week, we highlighted the MCD 01/17 $195-220 Calls 
and those have started to gain some ground as well, despite a choppy week for stocks in general.

Here are the moves we’ve observed in these plays over the past trading week:

$195 Calls – Range: 
3.65-4.80 – Max Gain: 32%
$200 Calls – Range: 1.97-2.71 – Max Gain: 38%
$210 Calls – Range: .47-.69 – Max Gain: 47%
$220 Calls – Range: .12-.22 – Max Gain: 83%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ROKU Recap & More

Roku, Inc. ROKU  – Recap

Typically, our ideas include stocks and options that are suited for short-term, quick-strike style trades. But occasionally, when the situation calls for it, we do formulate longer-term ideas.

Such was the case on the morning of September 23rd, when we tagged the ROKU 11/01 $115-118 Calls for extended observation. We provided an update on Friday of last week, but the gains experienced have since increased considerably.

$115 Calls – Range: 3.00-11.72 – Max Gain: 291%
$116 Calls – Range: 3.60-11.14 – Max Gain: 209%
$117 Calls – Range: 2.82-10.60 – Max Gain: 276%
$118 Calls – Range: 2.50-10.20 – Max Gain: 308%

Based on the stock’s premarket activity, we would expect to see these figures rise even further as we close out another trading week.

Bonus Idea: ROKU Weekly $122-123 Calls


Bed Bath & Beyond, Inc. BBBY

We did include one of our typical fast-strike plays in yesterday morning’s premarket report, with our highlighting of the BBBY Weekly $13-12 Puts. That idea turned out to be extremely successful as well, with multi-bag intraday performances from both contract sets.    

The $13 Puts ran from .51-1.27, marking a move of 149%, while the $12’s ran even harder, trading in a range from .10-.45 and rising by 350%


Fresh Idea:
SPY SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY Weekly $293-.50-295.50 Calls*
