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. Here is how Roku traded on the day.

Sundial and the Lazy Way To Play The Markets

In a blog of May 8th I talked about the bizarre number of shares outstanding in Sundial. It has 2.4 billion shares outstanding and the company is sitting on over one billion dollars in cash. Thats crazy for a penny stock. Back in late 2020 it was a meme stock and traded upwards of three billion shares per day! Now its a stock some traders use when the markets are extremely oversold and bounce 500 points on an opening like it did this morning.
Look at this mornings action.
Over 33 million shares trade by 10:49 a.m. in the morning. A $30,000 investment on Friday would be worth $34,000 this morning. It may sound like a crazy way to try and make money however the liquidity is there. As for options on this stock there are some however they start with a striking price of $.50 cents and then $1.00 and $1.50. What that means is that many of these series are to far "out-of-the-money" to be playing. Once again, this is a playable stock in extreme oversold positions like we witnessed today. Yet playable in simply purchasing the stock and now the options on it. Stocks in this price range often stay dormant for years. Read my May 8th blog. Having a legacy of being a meme stock helps to give this stock an unusual status.
