Sweeping the Board with Options Runners

Clean Options Sweep:

Amid a huge day for the markets yesterday, our daily options ideas also bore fruit. We’ve missed on exactly one of the many targets we’ve formulated all week, demonstrating a fairly routine level of accuracy for us. Our regular readers are surely accustomed to our high hit rate, and as for all of you newcomers, you will begin to see that we run a pretty tight ship around here. Each day consists of a review of the previous sessions interests, a grouping of fresh options ideas wherever possible, and an extended watchlist of both small and large cap stocks to watch based on their premarket activity.

Yesterday’s premarket report brought three ideas for the day, and those targets were the MRNA Weekly $162.50-167.50 Calls, the SBUX Weekly $84-86 Calls, and the PYPL Weekly $98-101 Calls, with MRNA and SBUX both showing out as the big winners.

5-Pack of Options Ideas & More

Options Success Continues: 

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we have been really sharp with our options calls recently. We never do poorly, but the magnitude of our recent successes has been huge, thanks to a strong market and tons of earnings reporters from which to choose our quick strike ideas.

Yesterday morning we selected four sets of ideas. They all produced, but we made an error on the BBBY $31-28 Puts, which were mistakenly listed in our report as Calls. So we’re going to skip over those and simply report on the other three winners which all produced big time intraday opportunities. The MAR Weekly $160-162.50 Calls, the VRTX Weekly $182.50-187.50 Calls, and the TMUS Weekly $117-120 Calls.

Here are the ranges and total possible gains on those plays for the day:

Finishing Out the Trading Week with a Bang

Options Blowout Continues:

In yesterday morning ‘s premarket report, two of our three sets of fresh options ideas were bearish in nature, and despite the markets going on a tear for the session, it was those puts that fared the best.

We’re talking about the CI Weekly $225 Puts, and the ROKU Weekly $395-390 Puts, both of which recorded multi-bag intraday runs on the day. Those figures were as follows: 

CI Weekly $225 Puts
$45: 9.50-24.50 (+158%)
_____

ROKU Weekly $395-390 Puts
$395: 4.31-10.02 (+132%)
$392.50: 3.73-8.12 (+118%)
$390: 2.92-7.30 (+150%)


Moderna, Inc. MRNA – Update:

We also wanted to swing back around to provide an update on the MRNA Calls that we initially began tracking on June 21st, the MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls. The stock itself has exploded over that time period, from a low of 200.00 the day of our first alert, to yesterday’s new high of 443.99, a move of 122%  That move has facilitated these amazing gains in our designated options plays:

MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls
$195: 23.50-222.50 (+847%)
$200: 18.00-241.10 (+1239%)
$210: 13.55-214.50 (+1483%)



eXp World Holdings Inc. EXPI – Update:


We’ve also been following another set of longer term calls, the EXPI 08/20 $40-45 Call, which continue to pile on the new highs for us.

EXPI 08/20 $40-45 Calls
$40: 1.55-10.00 (+545%)
$45: 1.30-5.70 (+338%)

These gains were made possible in part by the buzz caused by the company’s blockbuster earnings report and first-ever cash dividends. We will look to roll up our strike area to include the $50 Calls as well, with EXPI appearing ready to continue its impressive upward trajectory.
