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. There were multibag runners from every idea, and some of them went into the range of several hundred percent!

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%)

Keeping the Options Train Rolling

Big Name Earners Yield Solid Gains:

It was a big day for options plays on Friday, when we put forth a full slate of potential earnings-related ideas in our premarket report. With the exception of some longer-term targets expiring next month, all four of our short range formulations made some serious moves for us on the day.

Our designated areas of interest for Friday were the AXP Weekly $155-157.50 Calls, the SLB Weekly $34-35 Calls, the SNAP Weekly $13-11.50 Puts, and the VZ Weekly $47-45.50 Puts. It was great way to cap off an immensely exciting trading week, and a continuation of the routinely successful run of plays that we always seem to root out for our morning newsletter which, in our opinion, is the best no-nonsense, totally free source of options daytrading insights and ideas on the planet.

Here were the excellent opportunities Friday’s ventures brought to us:
