Options Updates

Under Armour, Inc. UA – On Thursday, we signaled interest in the UA Weekly $45-48 Calls and as you may recall, on that day we were provided the chance at gains spanning from 42-186% from contracts within the range. We mentioned the following morning that we expected to see further moves out of them. Our assumption proved accurate.

Multi-bag intraday gains were there for the taking, and the trading ranges in some cases exceeded any of the big gains we’d seen on Thursday by a wide margin: 

$45 Calls – Trading Range: .87-2.05 – Max Gain: 136%
$45.50 Calls – Trading Range: .54-1.54 – Max Gain: 185%
$46 Calls– Trading Range:  .20-1.10  – Max Gain: 450%
$46.50 Calls – Trading Range: .10-.57 – Max Gain: 470%
$47 Calls – Trading Range: .02-.20 – Max Gain: 900%


Bank of America Corp. BAC  – We were also targeting BAC options last week, namely the BAC 07/15 $15 Calls which we signaled for observation on Wednesday morning. That day we witnessed a low of .51 in those calls, and the performance was quite respectable for the remainder of the week, culminating in a high of .85 on Friday.

We’re going to want to leave this play on our radar, with so much time remaining until their expiration, we may yet see further opportunities arise.

Lithium Corp. LTUM

We also want to make a quick mention of LTUM, which appeared on our watchlist on Friday, and subsequently made a notable move.  The stock traded in a range from .10-.1349, for gains approaching 35%

Adding to the Radar

We took a look around this morning for a few new items of interest as we kick off another trading week, and came up with the following four stocks, three of which are in the biopharma sector. Half are catching our attention with fresh news out this morning, and the other half have attractive features on their charts.


EP Global Communications, Inc. EPGL

Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. Secures Exclusive Right of First Negotiation to EP Global Communications, Inc. Ophthalmic Technologies (Mon 7:10AM EDT)

Protea Biosciences Group Inc. PRGB

TetraLogic Pharmaceuticals Corp. TLOG  & StemCells Inc. STEM are also going on our watchlist after we’ve identified gaps on both charts in need of filling. We’re going to keep an eye on this pair over the next few sessions and see how it shakes out.

Options Update

Under Armour, Inc. UA – For a fresh options idea yesterday, we were taking a look at UA Weekly $45-48 Calls and were provided a good opportunity for some impressive intraday gains beginning early in the session. We were quite pleased with the performance of five out of the six sets of contracts in our observed range. The exception to the rule were the $48 Calls, which weren’t quite pushed into the money (UA high: 47.80). The rest offered up great chances, which were as follows:

$45 Calls – Trading Range: 1.45-3.91 – Max Gain: 170%
$45.50 Calls – Trading Range: 1.25-2.10 – Max Gain: 68%
$46 Calls– Trading Range:  .80-1.80 – Max Gain: 125%
$46.50 Calls – Trading Range: .85-1.21 – Max Gain: 42%
$47 Calls – Trading Range: .35-1.00 – Max Gain: 186%
$47.50 Calls – Trading Range: .28-.70 – Max Gain: 150%



We also want to put arange of options contracts on watch for McDonald’s Corp. MCD on the heels of its earnings beat. We’re going to be tracking the MCD Weekly $125-128 Calls for potential daytrades.

CAUTION: Trading weekly options on Friday is very high risk, as the closing bell signals their expiration. To be attempted by advanced traders only!

Aperture Health, Inc. APRE

When we introduced APRE to our readers on Monday (>>View Report), and at the time we ventured that it may display the same sort of volatility as is characteristic for such a low-float play, and we weren’t disappointed.

The stock offered up multiple chances for intraday gains over the course of the week. Monday brought a nice 59% rip from .027-.0428. Tuesday we saw a 23% swing from .031-.038, and yesterday, a run from .025-.0379 (+52%). In total, 134% in cumulative gains on the week, which is very respectable indeed.

Over the course of this same past week, with respect to its status on OTC Markets, APRE went from bearing a stop sign, to a yield, and has now gone current in an effort to be more transparent. It’s really good to see management doing the right thing for shareholders! We’ll be anxious to follow the progress of this interesting company into the future.
