Friday’s Big Winners, Fresh Ideas & More


Solid Options Runners: 

To close things out for the short week on Friday, we had a pair of quick-strike options ideas in the LULU and OKTA chains, as well as a longer term target for ASAN in our premarket report. Despite a rather subdued session for the markets in general wherein we saw a gap-down in the morning, and not much progress toward a recovery throughout the day, we were still able to manage some very nice gain chances.

Our specific areas of interest for the day were the LULU Weekly $300-307.50 Calls, the OKTA Weekly $106-108 Calls, and the ASAN 06/17 $22.50 Puts. Both sets of calls produced multi-bag profit possibilities on the day, with ASAN not lagging far behind. We’ve also got a week and change before they expire, so we’ll continue to monitor those as well. As for Friday’s moves, here’s what these ideas put forth for the session:

LULU Weekly $300-307.50 Calls
$300:
 2.55-7.35 (+188%)
$302.50: 2.00-5.60 (+180%)
$305: 1.41-4.50 (+219%)
$307.50: .94-3.40 (+262%)

Fresh Options Ideas: 

We are heading into an extended dry spell with regard to the number of big name companies dropping their earnings reports, which is going to persist for the next several weeks. We’re used to traversing these periodic ‘earnings deserts’, and as always, we’ll still be working hard every day to find the best opportunities possible, which for us, generally includes a heavy reliance on the SPY- our favorite market analog.

SPY 06/06 $413-415 Calls 
FUTU Weekly $38.50-40 Calls
QDEL 07/15 $85-95 Calls
