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.

Caterpillar and Livewire

So Caterpillar had a fantastic earnings report two days ago and the stock tanked $16.00. Go figure. Read my previous blog. Here is how the stock is rebounding back up again.
In a recent blog I wrote about "out-of-the-money" Calls on Livewire. I showed what the April 2024 7.5 Calls were trading at.
Given that they are thinly traded one would of had to purchase them by offering close to the asking price. Now read this recent news, Livewire is lowering their prices.
How can a company losing money cut their prices? How can a company losing money have their share price go up? Good questions? Maybe their EV motorcycles were just to expensive to begin with.
Now here is how the 7.5 Calls for April 2024 I talked about on Oct 21st are now trading at.
They are now "in-the-money" by $2.64. Everyone missed the boat on this one. I also note that the 12.5 Calls for April have now attracted some attention.
Trading in options that expire five months out on stocks in the $8.00- $10.00 range can be an extremely lucrative adventure.
