A New Earnings Season Commences

Moderna Inc. MRNA – Options Runners: 

We closed out the week on Friday morning by highlighting the nice moves made by the August contracts we’ve been tracking since June 21st,  the MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls. Additionally, we included some fresh weekly targets in the MRNA Weekly $265-$280 Calls.

Despite a rather poor day for the markets in general, Moderna continued to add impressively to its recent bullish surge. The stock has been in a general upward trend for the entire year, but that really kicked into overdrive over the past week.

Here are the new highs and total increases posted by our August calls, as well as the intraday ranges and total possible gains on the weeklies. Very impressive figures across the board: 

MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls
$195: 23.50-93.23 (+297%)
$200: 18.00-88.85 (+394%)
$210: 13.55-78.66 (+480%)

MRNA Weekly $265-$280 Calls

$195: 9.30-24.00 (+158%)
$200: 6.05-19.05 (+214%)
$210: 3.50-13.97 (+299%)
$195: 1.27-9.95 (+683%)


Fresh Options Ideas: 

Just a reminder, another earnings season is going to heat up quickly with hundreds of companies slated to report this week, hundreds more next week, and so on. The remainder of July and much of August should yield a wealth of opportunities in that department.

This morning we’re going to be looking at a potential post-earnings play in Auto Nation and a chart play idea for Airbnb:

AN 08/20 $100-105 Calls
ABNB 09/17 $135-145 Calls

Big MRNA Moves, New Ideas & More

Drone Guarder, Inc. DRNG – Recap:

The first thing we want to do this morning as we prepare to close out another trading week, is to mention the performance in DRNG. We tagged this OTC play for the first time in yesterday morning’s premarket report. It responded immediately with a fairly large intraday run that nearly took it to Pennyland right out of the starting gate at the open.

The stock took off from a low of .0031 and surged as high as .0098, which marks intraday upswing of 216% on less volume than the previous session’s all-time record, but still well over than twice the monthly average. We’ll be interested in continuing monitor its movements with the exceptional activity that has occurred this week.


Moderna Inc. MRNA – Options Update: 

Nearly three weeks ago today, on June 21st,  we formulated a set of longer-term options ideas for MRNA, specifically targeting the MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls which have been on a persistent run since then, and have turned in some truly impressive moves.

The stock itself has continued to soar, hitting new highs past the $260 mark yesterday and preparing to gap-up further this morning. Here are the total possible gains in our August calls in just one session shy of three weeks’ time:

MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls
$195: 23.50-67.47 (+187%)
$200: 18.00-63.20 (+251%)
$210: 13.55-54.60 (+303%)

In addition to the new highs we expect as a result of the big gap-up we’re seeing in the premarket, we’re also going to add the MRNA Weekly $265-$280 Calls to our daily watchlist as well.
