Marriot International, Inc. MAR – Update
The markets took a late dive yesterday afternoon, and as they plunged, it helped our bearish idea on MAR realize some nice new gains. We were just reporting on the MAR Weekly $86.50-85 Puts in yesterday’s report, with what were only nominal gains at the time. Today the figures are looking far more impressive.
Even after the company’s CEO somewhat brashly called MAR stock ‘a bottom’, traders did not agree as it took a considerable hit and headed lower. That produced the following opportunities in our targeted puts;
MAR Weekly $86.50-85 Puts
$86.50: 2.80-7.00 (+150%)
$85.50: 2.20-5.02 (+128%)
$85: 2.13-5.97 (+180%)
Fresh Options Ideas:
ALC Weekly $55-57.50 Calls
PGTI Weekly $10 Calls
CYBR Weekly $107-104 Puts
BioSig Technologies, Inc. BSGM
We have been tracking BSGM pretty closely this spring, and the stock has put together an incredible performance. Subsequent to our alert of this play roughly 5 weeks ago on April 7th, it registered a low of 3.45/share. The company has been doing trials for potential coronavirus treatments with the drugs Merimepodib and Remdesivir.
After stacking gains on top of gains and essentially going up continuously with very few daily exceptions, BSGM arrived at a new high of 12.43 yesterday. That represents an increase of 260% in just over a month’s time!
We will certainly continue to track BSGM’s progress and keep our ears to the track for any further developments in the company’s quest for a viable COVID-19 treatment.

The Walt Disney Co. DIS – Options Review
On Friday morning, we closed out the week with a last minute options ideasignaling our interest in the DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls. Despite a turbulent open for stocks in general, we saw some really nice early opportunities from those ideas.
The total possible gains on those contracts were as follows:
DIS Weekly $139-142 Calls
$139 Calls – Range: .61-1.48 – Max Gain: 143%
$140 Calls – Range: .38-.94 – Max Gain: 147%
$141 Calls – Range: .25-.54 – Max Gain: 116%
$142 Calls – Range: .12-.38 – Max Gain: 217%
AnaptysBio Inc. ANAB – Options Idea
We also took notice of ANAB this morning after the stock fell to new all-time lows yesterday. Just as a stock that shoots up a great deal in a short time must eventually come down to earth, one that tanks this hard is bound to recover some ground.
From current levels, a play on the stock itself could pan out favorably in a relatively short amount of time, but we will also designate some longer-term contracts in the options chain for an added idea. We’ll radar the ANAB 01/17 $10-15 Calls for observation over the next several weeks.
