Thursday’s Movers, Friday’s Targets

Options Recap:

As we head into the end of what has been a very productive week, we’re going to take a minute to reflect on the excellent job we’ve done weathering the earnings drought which is set to end on Monday day morning. We’re sure to have plenty of ideas to come from that, but in the meantime, we’ve held our own with our daily options ideas.

Four Winning Plays, More Fresh Ideas

Sweeping Options Success: 

We have never purported to be perfect when it comes to unearthing potential plays on a daily basis. Nobody can win them all, but we certainly come as close as humanly possible as often as we can. In instances like yesterday morning’s premarket report, we enjoyed perfection for the targets we chose. We set up four pins, and bowled a strike for the session!

Recaps from the Short Week, Fresh Plays

Options Recaps: 

Our options idea for the TWTR chain from Thursday morning’s premarket report returned good intraday results despite the stock trending in the wrong direction. The markets were subdued on Thursday, but that also played well into the bearish ideas we had signaled in the two sessions prior. On Tuesday we signaled some puts in the KMX chain, and on Wednesday, we added JPM to the mix. In both cases, Thursday’s session brought new highs for us.

Our exact targets were the TWTR 04/14 $47-49 Calls, the JPM Weekly $129-127 Puts, and the KMX Weekly $105-97.50 Puts, and here are the updated figures on the moves we observed in those plays:

TWTR 04/14 $47-49 Calls
$47:
 .26-.84 (+223%)
$48: .16-.55 (+243%)
$49: .10-.35 (+250%)
_____

JPM Weekly $129-127 Puts
$129:
 1.51-3.83 (+154%)
$128: .92-2.97 (+223%)
$127: .67-1.93 (+188%)
_____

KMX Weekly $105-97.50 Puts
$105: 4.50-12.90 (+187%)
