Four for Four on Options Plays, Fresh Ideas

Another Sweeping Options Success: 

It was just yesterday morning that we were patting ourselves on the back for another 100% green set of daily options ideas in Tuesday’s report, with three winning alerts. We upped the ante yesterday with a rare 4-pack of quick-strike options plays, and it may not surprise our regular readers that we hit on four out of four!

The targets we had designated were the AMD Weekly $92.50-93.50 Calls, the MSFT Weekly $287.50-292.50 Calls, the BA Weekly $230-235 Calls, and the SBUX Weekly $124-122 Puts. It was a nice mix of the morning’s earnings reporters that we felt looked the most attractive in the premarket. None of these sets of contracts let us down, but by far, AMD was the play of the day, with all three of our targets producing intraday moves of well over a thousand percent!

Here’s the rundown of all the fantastic chances that presented themselves to members of our community:

Friday’s Rippers, Fresh Ideas

Reviewing Winning Options Plays: 

We made our typical attempt at unearthing some winning options ideas on Friday morning, and with a boatload of earnings reporters to choose from we went with Twitter and Snapchat, in addition to some SPY calls, as we were confident in a bullish session for the markets at large.

Our estimation proved accurate as the markets ripped all day long, and that made for some interesting daily gain opportunities in our designated contract sets. Specifically, we were tracking the TWTR Weekly $71.50-73 Calls, the SNAP Weekly $72.50-73.50 Calls, and the SPY 07/23 $436-437.50 Calls.

In each and every case we were afforded the opportunity to log multi-bag intraday gains. The total ranges and moves on those plays were as follows:

TWTR Weekly $71.50-73 Calls
$71.50: .59-1.56 (+164%)
$72: .45-1.24 (+175%)
$72.50: .32-.97 (+203%)
$73: .23-.73 (+217%)

Extended-Term Options Plays Paying Off

Reviewing Winning Ideas: 

We typically focus more on options expiring at the end of a given week, there are certainly occasions when we target those with expiration dates weeks, or sometimes even months into the future. Which way it falls is often determined by the setup and conditions in which we find a play.

Today, we’re going to go over the recent moves made by a few of the longer-term options ideas to grace our watchlist recently. We signaled the DRI 07/16 $140-145 Calls in our report last Thursday morning, June 24th, and just a few sessions prior on the morning of the 21st we alerted the TBIO 08/20 $17.50-20 Calls and the MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls.

Take a look at the fantastic multi-bag upswings that we’ve witnessed in the short time we’ve been tracking these options:

DRI 07/16 $140-145 Calls
$140: 2.71-8.65 (+219%)
145: 1.10-4.60 (+318%)
_____

TBIO 08/20 $17.50-20 Calls
$17.50: 2.88-10.15 (+252%)
$20: 1.65-8.40 (+409%)

MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls
$195: 23.29-48.35 (+108%)
$200: 18.07-51.00 (+182%)
$210: 13.58-41.00 (+202%)


Fresh Options Ideas:
SPY Weekly $430-432 Calls
SPCE Weekly $51-53 Calls


Marin Software, Inc. MRIN – Recap:

Like a couple of the above-mentioned plays, we signaled MRIN in our report on the morning of June 24th on the basis of the stock alone. We didn’t even need options to leverage with this play as it has continued to soar to new highs.

Yesterday MRIN hit 21.68, which from our observed low of 2.56 registers as an increase 747% of in just a week’s time for this NASDAQ-listed stock!
