Options Recaps, Fresh Plays & More

Thursday’s Options Runners: 

We’re wrapping up yet another fruitful trading week, wherein we had several winners on both the stocks and options side of things. For the second straight session, we hit on two-thirds of our daily fresh options ideas in yesterday’s premarket report.

Our specified targets included the  CSX Weekly $32-32.67 Calls as well as the TXN Weekly $192.50-187.50 Puts. In both cases, we were witnesses to some very nice intraday movement on the chart.

The intraday moves those contract sets posted were highly respectable, allowing for the following single-session gain opportunities:

A New Earnings Season Commences

Moderna Inc. MRNA – Options Runners: 

We closed out the week on Friday morning by highlighting the nice moves made by the August contracts we’ve been tracking since June 21st,  the MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls. Additionally, we included some fresh weekly targets in the MRNA Weekly $265-$280 Calls.

Despite a rather poor day for the markets in general, Moderna continued to add impressively to its recent bullish surge. The stock has been in a general upward trend for the entire year, but that really kicked into overdrive over the past week.

Here are the new highs and total increases posted by our August calls, as well as the intraday ranges and total possible gains on the weeklies. Very impressive figures across the board: 

MRNA 08/20 $195-210 Calls
$195: 23.50-93.23 (+297%)
$200: 18.00-88.85 (+394%)
$210: 13.55-78.66 (+480%)
_____

MRNA Weekly $265-$280 Calls

$195: 9.30-24.00 (+158%)
$200: 6.05-19.05 (+214%)
$210: 3.50-13.97 (+299%)
$195: 1.27-9.95 (+683%)


Fresh Options Ideas: 

Just a reminder, another earnings season is going to heat up quickly with hundreds of companies slated to report this week, hundreds more next week, and so on. The remainder of July and much of August should yield a wealth of opportunities in that department.

This morning we’re going to be looking at a potential post-earnings play in Auto Nation and a chart play idea for Airbnb:

AN 08/20 $100-105 Calls
ABNB 09/17 $135-145 Calls
