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%)

$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:

We closed out yesterday’s report with a fresh options trading idea in the VEEV chain, and were not disappointed with the results.

We focused on VEEV after the company posted a mammoth year-over-year sales increase in its premarket earnings report. Our specific targets of interest were the VEEV Weekly $39-42 Calls and it came as no surprise to see solid intraday gain opportunities from each and every set of those contracts.

$39 Calls – Range: 1.55-2.25 – Max Gain: 45%
$40 Calls – Range: .85-1.53 – Max Gain: 80%
$41 Calls – Range: .50-.90 – Max Gain: 80%
$42 Calls – Range: .25-.50 – Max Gain: 100%


Kibush Capital Corp. DLCR

We placed DLCR on watch in yesterday’s premarket report, and were instantly met with chances for intraday gains by this subpenny swinger. From its low of .00297 first thing in the morning, the stock eventually reached a high .0046, representing a move of 55%

It marked the third straight session that DLCR has recorded higher highs and higher lows, and with a strong close at .0044, we’ll keep an eye out for continuation of the trend. For the stock to retain our interest it we’ll want to see it hold support at or above .0037 on any pullbacks.
