Another Excellent Week of Options Trading

Closing Out a Fantastic Short Trading Week: 

As we prepare to close out this holiday-shortened week, we’re going to start off by highlighting some more new highs in the SLQT 09/17 $7.50-10 Calls we’ve been tracking since August 31st. SLQT on the stock side of things alone, has risen by a considerable margin, running from 9.19 to 13.24 for a gain of 44%

We also want to update on a set of longer-term options in the EPAY chain that we designated for observation back on the morning of August 16th. EPAY has also made a solid move, and it facilitated some nice moves for our targeted range, the EPAY 09/17 $40-45 Calls.

Here are the new highs in the SLQT targets, as well as the overall range on the EPAY contracts since we alerted on them:

SLQT 09/17 $7.50-10 Calls

Multiple Thousand+ Percent Gainers!

Alpine 4 Technologies, Inc. ALPP 

We’ve been tagging ALPP in our extended watchlist for some time, and as we mentioned in last Thursday’s morning report, we have been on the trail of this stock since November 18th, at which time it was trading as low as .0735.

This week, we’ve continued to follow the incredible rise of ALPP, which soared to a new high of 4.79, marking an unreal upswing of 6417% in the time we’ve been talking about the stock. Even if you had only caught our update on Thursday, you still could have owned ALPP for 2.01/share, and been up as much as 138% at the new high.


Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc. AITX 

Speaking of thousand-percent gainers, we have been following AITX closely since our report just a couple of weeks ago on the 15th. The very next day it saw shares change hands for as little as .002, and we have now witnessed as it ran to a new high of .045. That represents a ten trading day swing of 2150%

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, OTC plays like these are currently a large part of our successful calls along with plenty of diverse options ideas. It’s also why we implore our readers to add our Extended Watchlists to their own watchlists each morning, as gems like these get unearthed more often than you’d think!


Fresh Options Ideas: 

We are currently in an extreme earnings dry spell that figures to last until the week of January 18th, when the calendar begins to get busy again. In the meantime, there are still plenty of potential plays out there, and here’s what we dug up today:

BABA Weekly $240-245 Calls
NVAX 01/15 $127-130 Calls


Extended Watchlist:
SEII, HPMM, TTOO, GAXY, AABB, ONCI, XALL, APRE

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Great Start to the Week

T2 Biosystems, Inc. TTOO

This past Thursday morning, we cautioned our readers that TTOO was heavily oversold, and sniffing out a bottom with a massive gap to the upside. As it turned out, our timing on that alert could not have any better. The stock saw its low of .52 that day and hasn’t looked back since. Yesterday, TTOO reached .76 which works out to a three-day upswing of 46%, a modest yet respectable move.

More importantly, the stock is once again taking off on the heels of a fresh PR this morning (below), reaching a new high of 1.13 in premarket trading. That further extends our observed range on this play to 117% as TTOO begins to fill the gap on the chart that we mentioned which runs up to the 1.36 mark.

LEXINGTON, Mass., Aug. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — T2 Biosystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTOO) announced today that the United States Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) granted approval for a New Technology Add-on Payment (NTAP) for the T2Bacteria® Panel for FY 2020.

The T2Bacteria Panel, the first and only FDA-cleared test to identify sepsis-causing bacterial pathogens directly from whole blood in 3 to 5 hours without the need to wait for blood culture, is now also the first and only in-vitro diagnostic test to ever receive approval for NTAP. (>>View Full PR)


Options Reviews

SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY –  As a fresh options idea to start the week yesterday morning, and in light of the bearish market sentiments that we were sensing in the premarket, we went with SPY Weekly $290-288 Puts as our targets. Early indications ultimately proved to be correct, as the markets tanked on the day, sending those contracts on a huge ride.

The following multi-bag gains were there for taking: 

$290 Puts – Range: 2.27-8.19 – Max Gain: 261%
