Friday’s Incredible Performance, Fresh Ideas

Friday’s Fantastic Five: 

We closed out the short trading week on Friday in grand fashion, offering up a varied slate of five options ideas for our readers to track. Anyone who put some skin in the game would likely have walked away happy, as we brought the house down on all five of our selections.

Closing Out a Highly Successful Short Week

Thursday’s Big Bangers: 

Thursday’s session turned up another nice crop of movers, with regard to our premarket earnings-based options ideas. We were looking a trio of earnings plays and went bearish on them all. A lackluster day from the markets in general aided our efforts, and we were able witness some really nice runs out of our selected plays.

We were honed in on the PG Weekly $144-142 Puts, the AA Weekly $52-50 Puts, and the DFS Weekly $96-94 Puts, and most of the target contracts in question posted some serious multibag moves on the day. Here are the ranges and total possible gains to be had on the backs of those ideas:

PG Weekly $144-142 Puts
$144:
 .36-1.95 (+441%)
$143: .22-1.25 (+468%)
$142: .14-.81 (+478%)
_____

AA Weekly $52-50 Puts
$52:
 .75-2.40 (+220%)
$51: .39-1.62 (+315%)
$50: .21-.85 (+304%)
_____

DFS Weekly $96-94 Puts

$96: 1.25-2.00 (+60%)
$95: .90-1.90 (+90%)
$94: .50-1.65 (+230%)

Another Week of Promising Opportunities on Deck

Kicking Off Another Exciting Trading Week:

We couldn’t have written a better ticket for ourselves last week in terms of all the excellent options success we achieved, really, throughout the entire week. We might have had one idea through that whole span that didn’t provide us a chance at quick returns. As for Friday, not only did all three of our designated targets for the day record nice moves, but we got some incredible new highs in the MOMO Weekly $5-6 Calls we signaled for observation on Thursday, after MOMO stock itself ran from 5.28-9.49 (+80%)

As for the rest, Friday’s fresh plays were the TSLA Weekly $170-172.50 Calls, the SPY 12/09 $394-396 Calls, and the NFLX Weekly $312.50-317.50 Calls, and here is the breakdown of the kinds of gains that were available, including the MONSTER moves from MOMO on the order of 1200-2000% on the day!
