A Selection of July Calls & More

Winning Options Review: 

We were pleased to start off the short trading week with a bang yesterday, getting right back on track with a couple of options trading ideas that netted some good intraday gain opportunities for anyone who was paying attention. The markets ripped all day long, so it was definitely a good time to go bullish on the SPY.

We did so with the SPY 06/21 $369-371 Calls, and we also stuck in an idea for the one earnings play that stood out to us on the day, the LEN Weekly $64-66 Calls. In both cases, the potential profits reach multibag territory. Those moves were as follows:

SPY 06/21 $369-371 Calls
$369:
 3.76-7.43 (+98%)
$370: 2.88-6.52 (+126%)
$371: 2.59-5.50 (+112%)

LEN Weekly $64-66 Calls

$64: 1.90-4.03 (+112%)
$65: 1.88-4.00 (+113%)
$66: 1.05-3.23 (+208%)


Fresh Options Ideas:

We’re in the midst of an earnings drought that is going to persist for at least a few more weeks, but we’re still trucking right along, working with what we’ve got. Today’s earnings play that stands out in the premarket is from the Winnebago chain, while we’ve also noticed some insider buying near the bottom on NLOK.

WGO 07/15 $45-50 Calls
NLOK 07/15 $24-25 Calls
FL 07/15 $31-32 Calls


Revlon, Inc. REV – Recap: 

We’ve also got an update on Revlon, which we tagged for observation on Friday morning. The stock has followed that alert up with two nice sessions in a row now. Our observed range for that period is 2.73-6.95 (+155%) This morning’s premarket high of 8.39 marks an overall increase of 207% over just a few trading days!

Using the SPY to Our Advantage, 3 Fresh Ideas

SPY Puts Surge: 

Once again yesterday, the markets losses are our gains. Our lone options trading idea for the day focused upon a dim view of the SPY, and with another precipitous decline for stocks, we hit the nail right on the head. This is among the reasons why our readers see SPY plays in our newsletters on a highly regular basis, as it tends to be easier to predict the actions of the markets as a whole than it is do so the same for just one. The SPY also sees a lot of intraday volatility which can often lead to opportunities on both sides of the fence in a single session.

In terms of yesterday morning, due to a bit of a drought of earnings reporters, our premarket report contained only one idea, which was the SPY 06/13 $385-383 Puts. Those targets offered up the chance at the following really nice intraday profit chances:

 SPY 06/13 $385-383 Puts
$385: 4.24-11.01 (+160%)
$384: 3.46-10.50 (+203%)
$383: 2.84-9.67 (+240%)


Fresh Options Ideas:
ORCL Weekly $70-72.50 Calls
COP Weekly $110-112 Calls
FERG Weekly $100-110 Calls


ProText Mobility, Inc. TXTM – Recap:

We also wanted to provide a quick recap on the run in TXTM yesterday. We last flagged this play for observation in an extended watchlist a few weeks back, subsequent to which the stock was trading for as little as .0016. Yesterday, on an immense amount of volume, the stock surged as high as .0049, which marks a 206% swing over our observed low.
