One Week Options. Are They A Good Bet In Times like This?

Look at how these these four stocks traded last week. 1) What a great week for one week Call option players on Boeing even though the stock ended up down .83 cents on the week. 2) Roku. Roku hasn't yet recovered from a not so good quarterly report. Roku lost $1.13 on the week. (Netflix in somewhat the same space was up $35.780.) 3) Disney suprised. I talked about that in a recent blog. 4) Now Caterpillar. It was up $12.83 Now The D.J.I. was down .11% or basically flat. In good times Call options can be your best friend. To be continued.


Are a new animal and sometimes go dormant until something happens. If your a fan of "Caterpillar","Ford" and "Boeing" options your not really looking in that space. Sometimes it nice to have a list of "outside the box" companies" to watch. Here is one of those list and here is my experience with one of those such companies. Well, not the exact list but one similar to it.
- this one with the symbol "APXT' I played it yesterday and today.
In at noon yesterday, ten contracts at .35 each and out the next morning June 3th 2021 at 7:14 a.m. at .95 each. I kind of saw it go up after I bought so yes I did put in a sell ticket early in the morning at a price I was thinking it would hit. What happened was kind of interesting. Call it a perfect storm as the company came out with a news report. Option traders know that one dollar increase on ten dollar stocks can do wonders, even if we are talking about regular stocks and not spacs. A couple of footnotes.
Shown above is the days trading on the stock. The options opened at .40 cents and went as high as $1.25. What I find amazing is my fill in the pre-market when the options opened so much lower. I didn't check to see if I got a fill on the opening which was a mistake on my part, because if I knew I was filled at .95 and I the options were back in the .45 cent range I would have purchased more of them.
