Fresh Ideas for an Exciting Friday Finish

Dominos Pizza Inc. DPZ – Options Recap 

We have been very light on options plays over the past week or two, as we are still in a lull for earnings reporters, which are the typical catalysts that we use to take advantage of the inherent volatility that generally follows a quarterly number drop.

. We still have managed to find an opportunity here and there, and yesterday our instincts told us to go short on Dominos. We signaled the DPZ Weekly $427.50-417.50 Puts and saw some good moves

DPZ Weekly $427.50-417.50 Puts
$327.50
: 18.85-30.10 (+118%)
$325: 17.99-30.35 (+151%)

Camber Energy, Inc. CEI – Recap

We also want to backtrack a bit to our September 25th call of CEI today following what has been a very respectable run for the stock.

The day after our tag of CEI, the stock saw a low of .5011 and hasn’t looked back. Yesterday, a very impressive intraday move carried it to a new high of 1.43, which works out to an increase of 185% over a span of just ten trading days!

SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY

We are still actively tracking the options targets we designated in the SPY chain in Tuesday’s premarket report which were the SPY Weekly $340-341 Calls. We got some pretty nice intraday gain opportunities in the 60-80% range early Tuesday, but the following upswing that we observed in these plays yesterday was far better.

The $340 Calls registered another run from .98-3.28, which marks a 235% move, while the $341’s ran from .75-2.65, for a 253% rip.

Arcutis Biotherapeutics Inc. ARQT – Form-4 Bottom Bouncer

Following multiple Form-4 submissions to the tune of over $12M each last week, ARQT sold off and began to establish just the type of chart setup we are always on the lookout for. A recently tanked stock with a gap on the chart to the upside, that is establishing a trend off of that bottom.

Combined with the recent insider purchases, and it makes for a stock that we need to have on our watchlist in the weeks, and perhaps even months ahead.

Options Recap

Thanks to a choppy day for the markets as a whole, both of the bearish options ideas we formulated for yesterday morning’s premarket report provided opportunities that either approached or exceeded the threshold of double-bag status.

Dominos Pizza Inc. DPZ – Dominos was the primary big name earnings reporter yesterday, and we decided to tag the DPZ Weekly $235-227.50 Puts for possible swing trades after disappointing figures. Those contracts moved considerably right out of the starting gate, prior to the company announcing a massive $1B buyback program, roughly 30 minutes into the session.

$235 Calls – Range: 4.02-7.40 – Max Gain: 84%
$232.50 Calls – Range: 3.80-6.00 – Max Gain: 58%
$230 Calls – Range: 2.63-4.81 – Max Gain: 83%
$227.50 Calls – Range: 1.30-3.60 – Max Gain: 177%

$45 Calls – Range: 4.20-9.00 – Max Gain: 114%
