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.

Caterpillar Calls And A Friday Morning Bounce.

The markets were spooked on the opening and here is what Caterpillar did in the first twenty-one minutes of trading.
Now here is how the 260 series of Calls reacted.
Notice there was next to no "open interest" in them going into this mornings opening and very little early market trading. A reading of next to no "open interest" is a rare phenomenon. Also notice how this series of options traded down to $.75 (seventy-five dollars) a contract. Would a look at Caterpillars five day chart give us any indication that the stock could break out of it's downward trend? Yes, it suggests that anything could happen.
Now a lunch hour update. Caterpillar exploded to the upside! A bid of $5.95 and an ask of $6.60.!
Two conclusions. Avoid purchasing Calls on Caterpillar at the close on a Thursday (Calls that is that expire the next day). If you like the upside wait and hope for Friday morning early dip. Here we have a prime example of how Caterpillar can bounce. Also, don't let a low "open indicator" number bother you. It amazes me that so few traders recognize the opportunities found with trading "last day" options on Caterpillar. Now a final look at how Caterpillar and the 260 Calls ended up closing the day.
Ninety-three contracts traded on this option series on the day and most of that action happened in the first twenty minutes of trading. Instititions and brokerage houses missed the boat on this opportunity! Wall Street is dumb sometimes. * 3th quarter earnings are due out Oct. 26th. Floods, fires and wars. The world is changing. More Caterpillar products are needed to deal with the effects of global warming. Here are past earning numbers.
But wait. The game of betting on earning reports to be higher than what analyst predict is not one most people want to play. That plus recession worries overshadow the markets. Deere and other companies have had strong past quarters only to witness stock price declines. These are tough times to be in the market when money in the bank can earn 5%. Caterpillar Calls are not on the minds of very many investors.
