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. Now let us look at the next week's action. Let's begin with Here is how Roku traded on the day. Can you see how buying in on the opening would have been a mistake. That is a common hhemeon on Monday morning, one day Call option trading.

Lordstown Motors and Polestar

The race to go electric can sometimes be expensive and sometimes you have to do unexpected things to keep going. Lordstown has had a rocky ride and announced on Friday afternoon a new partnership. Friday afternoons are the ablsolute worst time of the week to make such announcements if there is a chance investors might reacte negatively to such news. It doesn't give the markets much time to allow this news to sink in. Mondays are better when people are more in a forward thinking mode.That's exactly what happened as you can see from these charts. But first the news.
So your taking on a new partner with expertise who also supporting the share price. What's wrong with that? Look at the money they are pouring into this company and isn't time of the essence to get the project closer to the finish line. Will this news eventually end up being viewed as a good thing? How much value do you place on this new companies expertise? It has to be worth something. Here are the January Calls with a 7.50 striking price. I am not saying to rush out and buy them. What I am saying is that this sector of the market is getting a lot of attention as of late and this could be an interesting play.
Perhaps a striking price of 10 with one year to go might be a better way to play it. Or just stay away and watch how things unfold over the next little while. This stock has had a rocky ride. Here are two other electric car events that happened in the last week.
Now Polestar and a new issue.
Look at the volume of trading on this stock on Friday, simply crazy and here are next weeks 10 series of Call options on it.
An Oct 5th update. It's not good.
