Big OTC Gainers, Options Plays

Options Review: 

Half of our fresh bullish options ideas yesterday morning worked out well with solid intraday runs. Not bad, considering the markets as a whole took a dive and provided zero push.

Those ideas were the  CAN 06/18 $7.50-10.00 Calls which fared exceptionally well, and the BABA Weekly $222.50-227.50 Calls which struggled early on in the session, but had a change of fortune around midday and finished having posted some respectable moves.

OTC Updates:

All American Pet Co. AAPT – Most of our regular readers already know that while our primary focus these days is on making fast money with short-term options ideas, we still tag OTC stocks for observation daily in our “Extended Watchlists”. There’s often a runner among our highlighted lists, and over the past week that distinction has belonged to AAPT.

Following our signal on the stock a week ago today, at which time AAPT traded for as little as .0053 per share, it has gone on an impressive tear that led to a new high of .0129 to start off the fresh trading week yesterday. That works out to a four-session upswing of 143%

New World Gold Corp. NWGC – Another OTC play we’ve been tracking is NWGC. We tagged it roughly three weeks back on May 7th, and following that report the stock would see a low of .0033 before running to this week’s stellar new high of .0285. That represents a big increase of 763%

Options Review: 

We played the SPY from both sides of the fence last week as the markets chopped up and down over the course of some rather volatile sessions. On Friday morning, we flipped from bears to bulls and cast our lot in with the SPY 05/14 $411-412.50 Calls. 

Additionally, a couple of our other targets, the DASH Weekly $122-125 Calls and the PBR Weekly $9-9.50 Calls, produced some impressive intraday rallies that gave traders the chance at the following gains:

SPY 05/14 $411-412.50 Calls
$411: 2.56-6.48 (+153%)
$412: 1.91-5.58 (+192%)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Idea & More

Acacia Research Corp. ACTG

Pretty much the entirety of 2017 has been some tough sledding for ACTG, which was in an overall downtrend since last winter when it was trading at more than twice its current value.

That all seemed to change around midway through last month, as the stock has managed to establish a good rebound effort for several sessions. In the premarket the stock has broken previous resistance which coincided with the 50DMA (3.63) and could make a move to fill that gao we’ve pointed out on the chart below.

We’ll put the stock on watch in the days and weeks ahead as we kick off this holiday-shortened trading week.


Insmed, Inc. INSM

After posting key data reflecting positive top-line results in its Phase III lung disease treatment study, INSM has exploded into the blue sky this morning. The stock has rapidly gained more than twice its value in premarket trading, and whenever we come across a situation like this, we begin to look for the options contracts that could give us the best opportunity for rapid gains.

We think that the INSM 09/15 $27-30 Calls could stand to see some nice activity if the stock continues the blue-sky breakout we’ve witnessed so far.
