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.

Toyota - Just Buying a Straight Call Two Weeks Out

A recent past blog highlighted the fact that the volume in Toyota options is super light. Now read this. There was a change of leadership.
Sales are up, the stock is down. They now have the second, third and fourth best selling cars in the world. It was just reported April global sales were up.
Here is the trading in two "in-the-money" Call options that expire in two weeks (The trading on May30th and on May31st).
Now May 31st.
Here is the chart.
This is all so strange. Only one Call option traded in two trading days. One! I must be an odd duck writing about this or missing something. Production levels up with top selling brands which equates to economies of scale. A proven product with a good reputation. A stock off in price two days in a row in a soft market. Any kind of a reversal would send these Calls up 50% in one day. At this point in time the higher up 140 Calls with two weeks to go would also surge on a two dollar reversal. That would cause an instant double.
I hate blogs like this which say something might double. I could look like an idiot for going so off tangent. Oh well. Check back later to see how all of this played itself out. ** One might wonder if you at mercy of the option makers in trading in thinly traded series like this. Yes and no. When something happens to change the projectory of a stock like Toyota there is no stopping it! ** It popped on the opening. Yes you can play Toyota.
Here is how it closed out the day.
What a nice one day move. This proves that Toyota is tradeable.
