Kicking Off Another Short Trading Week

Options Play Review: 

Heading into the long weekend on Friday, we took just one stab at a set of potential quick-strike weekly targets. We went to the short side on Micron Technology and thanks in part to an early dip in the markets, that idea yielded a pretty good set of runners.

We were zeroed in on the MU Weekly $53.50-52 Puts which produced the following multi-bag intraday runs for us:

MU Weekly $53.50-52 Puts
$53.50: 
.66-2.06 (+212%)
$53: .43-1.65 (+284%)
$52: .20-.85 (+325%)

Additionally, we wanted to do a quick recap of a couple of the plays we signaled interest in earlier in the week. We flagged ideas in General Mills and McCormick in Wednesday morning’s report that finished out the week with strength and posted new highs. Our targets were the GIS 07/15 $70-72.50 Calls and the MKC 07/15 $90-80 Puts, which put up the following trading ranges and total possible gains between Wednesday and Friday.

GIS 07/15 $70-72.50 Calls
$70: 1.69-5.90 (+249%)
$72.50: .75-3.50 (+367%)
_____

MKC 07/15 $90-80 Puts 
$90: 6.00-8.10 (+35%)
$85: 2.01-3.60 (+80%)
$80: .60-1.20 (+100%)

KRTX 07/15 $125-130 Calls 


Gain Clients, Inc. GCLT – OTC Recap:

We also have a brief update on GCLT, an OTC stock we flagged in Friday morning’s extended watchlist. The made a very respectable intraday move, running from a low of .018 on up to a high of .0349. That works out to a single-session rip of 94% and that came on its second-highest daily volume ever recorded, with the previous session being the first.

Yesterday’s Options Movers, Fresh Plays & More

Yesterday’s Options Results: 

Our perfect streak had to come to an end sooner or later, with one of our ideas from yesterday’s premarket report failing to produce instant opportunities. We didn’t see an immediate push from the August YETI Calls we signaled, but there is, of course, plenty of time before expiration for us to get the activity we’re looking for from them.

In the meantime, our other three selections proved to be solid ideas for the day, and three out of four is nothing to sneeze at! Those plays that yielded gratification were the WBA Weekly $38.50-39.50 Calls, the DCT 07/15 $17.50-15 Puts and the SGH 07/15 $17.50 Calls, and here were the total possible profits which could have been reaped from those targets:

WBA Weekly $38.50-39.50 Calls
$38.50:
 .52-1.13 (+117%)
$39: .45-.84 (+87%)
$39.50: .35-.59 (+69%)
_____

DCT 07/15 $17.50-15 Puts
$17.50: 
2.45-4.00 (+63%)
$15: .70-2.25 (+221%)
_____

SGH 07/15 $17.50 Calls 

$17.50: .15-.55 (+267%)


Fresh Options Idea
MU Weekly $53.50-52 Puts
NFLX 07/22 $185-190 Calls


haring Economy International Inc. SEII – OTC Recap:

Yesterday morning we noticed that SEII had been pressing upward on a considerable run, and included it in our extended watchlist. The stock continued its impressive push, trading in a range from .106 up to .142. The momentum built up in this stock is considerable, and we’ll certainly be watching for a continuation of same in the sessions to come on the other side of the long weekend.

Cautious Yet Bold Options Strategy Keeps Bearing Fruit

Yesterday’s Options Success: 

It seems like the winds of fortune have been gusting in our favor for quite some time now, with the options targets we outlined in yesterday’s morning report all producing gain opportunities on some level. That makes for the fourth straight session in which every single one of our interests has given traders a shot as compounding their funds.

Our daily focus was trained on the AVAV 07/15 $75-70 Puts, the GIS 07/15 $70-72.50 Calls, and the MKC 07/15 $90-80 Puts, which all put forth some measure of intraday run in what amounted to a bit of a choppy day for the markets as a whole. Things in that regard have become rather harder to predict, but we’ve been trying very hard to select potential plays with a good risk/reward balance. Here’s where our efforts led yesterday:

AVAV 07/15 $75-70 Puts
$75: 
2.49-4.49 (+80%)
$70: 1.29-2.20 (+71%)
_____

GIS 07/15 $70-72.50 Calls

MKC 07/15 $90-80 Puts 
$90: 6.00-7.20 (+20%)
$85: 2.01-3.37 (+68%)
$80: .60-1.20 (+100%)
