Drone Guarder, Inc. DRNG – Recap:

The first thing we want to do this morning as we prepare to close out another trading week, is to mention the performance in DRNG. We tagged this OTC play for the first time in yesterday morning’s premarket report. It responded immediately with a fairly large intraday run that nearly took it to Pennyland right out of the starting gate at the open.

The stock took off from a low of .0031 and surged as high as .0098, which marks intraday upswing of 216% on less volume than the previous session’s all-time record, but still well over than twice the monthly average. We’ll be interested in continuing monitor its movements with the exceptional activity that has occurred this week.

Moderna Inc. MRNA – Options Update: 

Nearly three weeks ago today, on June 21st,  we formulated a set of longer-term options ideas for MRNA, specifically targeting the MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls which have been on a persistent run since then, and have turned in some truly impressive moves.

The stock itself has continued to soar, hitting new highs past the $260 mark yesterday and preparing to gap-up further this morning. Here are the total possible gains in our August calls in just one session shy of three weeks’ time:

MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls
$195: 23.50-67.47 (+187%)
$200: 18.00-63.20 (+251%)
$210: 13.55-54.60 (+303%)

In addition to the new highs we expect as a result of the big gap-up we’re seeing in the premarket, we’re also going to add the MRNA Weekly $265-$280 Calls to our daily watchlist as well.

Datasea, Inc. DTSS – Recap:

We also will want to continue to keep an eye on DTSS. We tagged this OTC play in our extended watchlist yesterday. The stock posted a fair performance on the day, while trading a massive amount of volume as compared to what is typical for the stock, and is still trending up in premarket trading this morning.

DTSS ran from 3.65-4.45 on the day yesterday (+22%) and today, has changed hands for as much as 5.47. That works out to an increase of 50% and with the momentum building up here, we’re certainly going to want to continue to track its activity.
