Midweek Movers, 5-Pack of New Ideas

Five for Five on Wednesday:

We got things right back on track in yesterday morning’s premarket report, with a mostly bearish slate of options trading ideas. We went to the short side on four out of our five potential plays for the day, and the markets played along, experiencing a rather red day that helped facilitate some nice gain chances among our picks. All five posted solid intraday runs for us on the day.

Our daily targets were the ANET Weekly $260-255 Puts, the WM Weekly $192.50-197.50 Calls, the DDOG Weekly $131-128 Puts, the LSCC weekly $65 Puts and the CDNS Weekly $285-280 Puts. Here were the very respectable moves they made during the session:
