Options Recaps, 4 Fresh Potential Plays

More Options Review:

We want to open up this morning by apologizing for any confusion pertaining to the SPY Calls in yesterday’s premarket report. We mistakenly listed our targets as the $424-425 instead of the $524-525 Calls, and didn’t catch our error until it was too late. We don’t often make mistakes, but we’re quit to point it out when we do. As a result we have just a couple of yesterday’s targets to report back on, but we’ve also got some updates on previous longer-term plays that have tacked on some new highs this week.

Yesterday’s movers were the BOIL Weekly $13.50-14.50 Calls, and the SGML 04/19 $13-14 Calls. The CAR 04/05 $118-120 Calls, and the DELL 04/05 $114-116 Calls, we alerted on last Monday, and we’ll include the updated figures for those excellent week-over-week runners as well:

BOIL Weekly $13.50-14.50 Calls
: .81-1.22 (+51%)
$14: .55-.90 (+64%)
$14.50: .37-.65 (+76%)

SGML 04/19 $13-14 Calls
: 1.25-1.80 (+44%)
$14: .80-1.30 (+62%)

CAR 04/05 $118-120 Calls
: 3.20-8.32 (+191%)
$119: 3.10-5.10 (+64%)
$120: 2.69-5.60 (+108%)

DELL 04/05 $114-116 Calls
: 2.15-6.00 (+179%)
$115: .60-5.00 (+733%)
$116: 1.80-4.00 (+122%)

Fresh Options Ideas:

We’ve got some potential earnings plays in PVH and PAYX this morning, as well as a couple of longer term recovery play possibilities with SNOW, whose CEO recently snapped up $5M at the bottom, and IRON, which tanked dramatically on some unfavorable news.

PVH 04/19 $110-105 Puts
PAYX 04/19 $120-115 Puts
SNOW 05/10 $175-180 Calls
IRON 05/17 $40-45 Calls

Friday’s Rippers, 3 New Ideas

Fantastic Friday Finish:

Things really could not have gone much better for us on Friday to close out the short trading week. We had highlighted potential options plays in three chains and got awfully good results from each of the posted ideas in our premarket report for the day. Our 2024 calendar year has been exceptional thus far, with very nearly everything we touch turning to potential gold.

The ideas that we had hashed out for Friday’s session were the SPY 01/19 $478-480 Calls, the TRV Weekly $200-210 Calls, and the SLB Weekly $48-49 Calls, and here were the intraday upswings each of those contract sets recorded on the day:

SPY 01/19 $478-480 Calls
 .63-4.71 (+648%)
$479: .33-3.78 (+1045%)
$480: .15-2.83 (+1787%)

TRV Weekly $200-210 Calls
$200: 6.96-11.80 (+69%)
$210: .05-1.90 (+3700%)

SLB Weekly $48-49 Calls
$48: 1.13-2.43 (+115%)
$48.50: .76-1.81 (+138%)
$97: .46-1.36 (+195%)

We also have an update for the longer-term SAVE Calls that we initially highlighted as a possible recovery play in our report this past Wednesday morning. Essentially the stock performed exactly as we said we believed it would, coming down a little lower before bouncing back, and giving us the kind of gains we were looking for. We might have expected it to take slightly longer than it did, but our vision came to fruition by the end of what was a really great short trading week.

SAVE 02/16 $5.00-7.50 Calls
$5.00: .68-2.60 (+282%)
$7.50: .25-1.46 (+484%)

Fresh Options Ideas: 

Without any interesting earnings reporters dropping figures this morning, we’re just going to go with a potential play on the SPY, and then we’ve identified a couple of longer-term potential plays to keep an eye on in the days and weeks ahead.

SPY 01/22 $482-483 Calls*
PBF 02/16 $43-44 Calls
NNI 02/16 $85-90 Calls

Good Start to the Week, 5-Pack of Ideas

Solid Moves Monday:

We got the week off to a fairly good start yesterday morning, signaling a series of four potential options trading targets. Three of those produced instant results for us, and posted some good figures on the day. We’re still getting along, even as the big name earnings reports that are typically our bread and butter, have been few and far between. A look at the extended earnings calendar suggests that the next major earnings period will begin ramping up in the last week of October, so we’re less than three weeks away from much more exciting times.

In the meantime, our three runners from yesterday morning’s report, the the and the held us over pretty well for Monday, and we have a solid slate for today as well. Here’s how those figures broke down for yesterday:

NVDA Weekly $437.50-440 Calls
 9.10-17.15 (+88%)
$440: 7.90-15.27 (+93%)

COIN Weekly $77-79 Calls
 1.49-1.96 (+32%)
$78: 1.08-1.52 (+41%)
$79: .80-1.17 (+136%)

RIVN Weekly $25-23 Puts
$25: .94-1.82 (+94%)
$24.50: .69-1.46 (+112%)
$24: .48-1.13 (+135%)
$23.50: .32-.86 (+169%)
$23: .20-.61 (+105%)

Fresh Options Ideas:
MKC 10/20 $75-70 Puts
STT 10/20 $65-67.50 Calls
ABNB Weekly $135-133 Puts
