Bullish and Bearish Options Ideas

Ehang Holdings Ltd. EH – Recap:

Things have been cooling on the options front this week as we struggle through a period of extreme low numbers of daily earnings reporters. It’s the volatility following these earnings dumps that provides us with the big gain chances we’re always after.

We have been managing to find plays here and there, however, and one of our ideas from yesterday morning, the EH Weekly $40-45 Calls, did post some solid intraday gains for us. Out of our pair of designated targets, one achieved multibag status while the other fell just a couple of percentage points short.

Here are the total moves and possible profits on the session for those plays:

EH Weekly $40-45 Calls 
$40: 3.98-7.90 (+98%)
$45: 2.34-4.80 (+105%)


Fresh Options Ideas:

We’ll be flipping bearish on ORCL today, and are also taking a longer-term look at SAGE, which has fallen off a cliff this week.

SAGE 08/20 $60-65 Calls 

ORCL Weekly $79-77.50 Puts

Interesting Chart Plays:

Also catching our eye this morning are a couple of interesting chart setups in FibroGen, Inc. FGEN and Fastly, Inc. FSLY, and in both cases we will be watching the stocks as well as some potential options ideas.

In the case of FGEN, there are a couple of large gaps to fill to the upside, and over the past couple of sessions the stock has given indication that it may be about to do so. We’re going to be tagging the FGEN 07/16 $27.50-30 Calls for observation.

On FSLY, the gap-fill has occurred this week and the PPS is now on the verge of breaking past the 50DMA with its considerable momentum. We’ll radar the FSLY 06/25 $61-63 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Blockchain Watchlist & More

LongFin Corp. LFIN
.
Traditionally, we steer clear of brand new IPO’s for at least the first few weeks of trading, but we made an exception for LFIN on Friday and we’re glad that we did. We noticed that the company had announced its acquisition of Ziddu.com, a Blockchain-powered Micro-lender. As anything crypto related seems to be a hot ticket item at the moment, the news facilitated a fantastic move to the upside.

From an early low of 7.86 the stock ran as high as 26.80 for a 241% intraday rip. This morning the bonanza continued with a premarket high of 44.73, marking an incredible 469% rise off of Friday’s low!


Integrated Ventures, Inc. INTV

Speaking of crypto plays, we slated INTV for observation on November 28th, and have seen a really nice move out of it since that time. From a low of .3804, the stock has run all the way up to 1.68. That works out to a 342% in just over two weeks’ time.

Earlier this month the company opened its second bitcoin mining location including its 100th mining rig, and stated that its expectations were that related revenue would double inside of a month.  We’re going to continue to reap the rewards of the crypto-hysteria that is currently sweeping the market for as long as the trend persists.


Under Armour Inc. UAA

Our fresh options ideas for Friday morning on UAA, which we commented on having an excellent chart setup in the works. We focused in on the UAA Weekly $13.50-14.50 Calls for the short term, and were pleased at the movement we witnessed, with double and triple-baggers across the board:

$13.50 Calls – Range: .45-1.80 – Max Gain: 300%
$14 Calls – Range: .28-1.27 – Max Gain: 353%
$14.50 Calls – Range: .24-.80 – Max Gain: 233%

We also signaled some longer term contracts in the 01/12 $14.50-15.50 Calls, which we’ll continue to keep an eye on through their expiration.
