Options Runners & More

More Earnings Hits: 

Our impressive run of options success continued with the fresh ideas we included in yesterday’s premarket report. We were feeling bearish about Campbell’s and United Foods following their quarterly earnings reports, and our instincts proved to be well founded.

Our targets were the CPB Weekly $48-46 Puts, and the UNFI 06/18 $40-35 Puts, and in both cases, we witnessed some very nice intraday moves in our targeted ranges.

CPB Weekly $48-46 Puts
$48: 
1.11-2.14 (+93%)
$47.50: .70-1.86 (+166%)
$47: .35-1.35 (+286%)
$46.50: .25-.87 (+248%)
$46: .12-.46 (+283%)

Majic Wheels Corp. MJWL – Update:  

We have been tracking MJWL for some time now, with our initial tag coming in on the morning of May 13th. Subsequent to that report just a shade under a month ago, the stock changed hands for as little as .0094.

Toward the end of May and into this month MJWL has been streaking to new highs, yesterday reaching its best mark yet at .0791. That’s a total increase of 741% in just a short time. Even those who had only caught our tag of MJWL this Monday morning, still had a shot at some nice gains. Monday’s low came in at .0453, which as of yesterday’s new high marked a three-day upswing of  75%

The activity in the MRVL Weekly $49-51 Calls and the SFIX Weekly $61.50-65 Calls didn’t blow the lid off of anything, but we did witness some highly respectable gain opportunities.

Interesting Chart Plays:

Also catching our eye this morning are a couple of interesting chart setups in FibroGen, Inc. FGEN and Fastly, Inc. FSLY, and in both cases we will be watching the stocks as well as some potential options ideas.

In the case of FGEN, there are a couple of large gaps to fill to the upside, and over the past couple of sessions the stock has given indication that it may be about to do so. We’re going to be tagging the FGEN 07/16 $27.50-30 Calls for observation.

On FSLY, the gap-fill has occurred this week and the PPS is now on the verge of breaking past the 50DMA with its considerable momentum. We’ll radar the FSLY 06/25 $61-63 Calls.

Coronavirus Watchlist & More

Todos Medical, Ltd. TOMDF

The see-saw of market volatility persists with no end in sight. Traditional investing has become a fool’s errand in many, if not most, cases. The kind of opportunistic short term trading that we do is relatively intact, with the right targets and scenarios.

In this case, we caught TOMDF’s coronavirus news in the premarket yesterday, stating that the company had secured distribution agreements for testing kits in both the US and Isreal. After including it in our extended watchlist, the stock managed a very nice intraday gain. It traded up from a low of  0413, and reached a high of .08, which works out to an intraday upswing of 94%


Coronavirus Watchlist

While we do focus primarily on quick strike opportunities, it’s also worth it to mention a few plays that represent products and services that are high demand at the present time due to the fallout from COVID-19. If the report from the UK’s highly respected Imperial College is accurate, this global health crisis is only in its beginning stages, and will get much, much worse in the months ahead.

While neither these, nor any other plays are “corona-proof”, the effects may weigh less heavily on these stocks and those like them:
