HUGE Options Success on Short Week

Johnson & Johnson JNJ 

Our coverage of JNJ options continues today as we close out this short trading week. We have been hot on the trail of this chain since last Monday, adjusting our ideas as we go, and have landed on the JNJ Weekly $140-142 Calls. Those contract sets have set new highs for us multiple times already, and yesterday’s session was no exception.

The markets went on another tear, going majorly green across the board, and that produced the following ranges and potential intraday mega-gains: 

JNJ Weekly $140-142 Calls
$140: .55-4.40 (+700%)
$141: .37-3.35 (+805%)
$142: .25-2.68 (+972%)

 We would also like to update on the SPY calls we made this Monday morning.  We signaled the Weekly $258-260 Calls, and those have made some really nice headway as well, providing for the following gain opportunities:

Weekly $258-260 Calls 
$258: 4.07-16.85 (+314%)
$259: 3.61-15.86 (+339%)
$260: 3.11-15.13 (+386%)

We will go ahead and roll up to track the SPY Weekly $274-275 Calls into the close today.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Success

UnitedHealth Group Inc UNH

As we near the midway point of this holiday-shortened week, we are going to be taking a look at a fresh earnings related options idea with UnitedHealth.

The company just posted an impressive across-the-board earnings beat, while the chart itself was already in a prime bottom-bounce position. We are going to track the UNH Weekly $232.50-237.50 Calls, which should be in very good shape if events play out as expected.

Fastenal, Inc. FAST

We also signaled the FAST 04/18 $62.50-67.50 Calls, last Thursday following the company’s own earnings beat. The moves we’ve observed since then have been moderate, but still impressive nonetheless.

$62.50 Calls – Range: 5.40-7.10 – Max Gain: 31%
$65 Calls – Range: 2.40-4.80  – Max Gain: 100%
$67.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.43 – Max Gain: 121%

Fresh Options Idea:
Senior Housing Properties Trust SNH 06/21 $10 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Closing Out a Strong Week

Kandi Technologies Group Inc. KNDI – Recap

On Wednesday morning, we were looking at a pair of contracts in the KNDI options chain. We did see multi-bag gains out of those as mentioned in yesterday’s morning report, but perhaps just as big of a story is the move that KNDI stock itself managed in the two sessions since that alert.

From a low of 7.16 Wednesday morning, to yesterday’s high of 9.21, KNDI has managed to rattle off a 29% session-over-session increase. That’s a heck of a two-day swing for a $7+ stock, and will keep our interest as we close out the week.

This move was catalyzed by the US approval of two of the Chinese company’s electric vehicles.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the domestic go-ahead to KNDI’s Model EX3 and Model K22 electric cars.

Dominos Pizza, Inc. DPZ – Recap

We went bearish with some Dominos Puts yesterday, following a particularly bad quarterly release by the company in yesterday’s premarket earnings dump. Earning and revs were big misses, with same store sales making only a marginal jump.

We signaled our interest in tracking the DPZ Weekly $270-260 Puts and both of those sets of contracts recorded solid intraday moves to the upside, of which traders could have taken advantage. The $270 Puts ran from 12.02 to 20.50, marking a 71% rip, while the $260 surged even more, trading in a range from 4.99-12.84 for an intraday gain of 177%
