Why Not To Buy Not Rivian Calls With Two Days to Go?

It's obvious right? If you mess up and the stock opens the wrong way you only have one day for a rebound. Why put yourself in that position? Others might be in the camp of saying why not go for a fifty percent rebound on Thurday's morning opening. The stock sold of on Wednesday on very little volume. A morning pop is possible. The stock has being strong as of late. Here is it's five day chart. Now this, the seventeen series of Calls that expires in two days. They do look cheap after hitting a high of $1.55 on the day. If we look at a 30 day chart we will see that the stock is still in an uptrend. Why not look at the Call options one and two weeks out? Here are the seventeen series of Calls one and two weeks out They would be much safer to play and I will check in on these ones at a later date. So what happened on the Thursday opening? Let's switch gears for a moment and look at how Roku, a much higher priced stock opened and look at how their Call options moved.

Ford and The Call and Put Option Game On It Has Slightly Changed.

Look at this chart. Do you recognize something a little bit different in the striking prices? They have changed and here is proof.
Forget playing the 12, the 12.50, the 13 and the 13.50. Calls or Puts. Now they are all 11.85, 12.35, 12.85, 13.35 Calls or Puts. What is now different is that the striking prices have now shifted downwards by .15 cents or upwards by .35 cents depending on how you look at it. Does it make any difference to option players? Has it become slightly more challenging to do the math? Not really as everything functions just the same. Just learn to get use to it. That said, here is how the stock Ford is now trading in February. .
Now look at these same Call options on the morning of Tuesday February 22nd two trading days later.
The market tanked on Monday and the executives at Ford are making comments that are casting their operating realities in a bad light. Institutional investors have limited patience for these kinds of outbursts.
Then this.
Ford's public relations department needs to coach their management to button their lips. Here now is a printout of the same Call options we showed above two days later. They have tanked.
The bottom line is the playing Call and Put options on Ford can be a wild game when there are so many moving parts in play. Yet then again these price gyrations make for interesting trading opportunities. Don't be afraid to play them.* The longer term Call and Put options like the Ford 12 and 13 and 14 Calls remain "as is". It's only so far, the near term Call and Puts options that have the new striking prices.
