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.

Could You Play Disney Calls Last Friday After The Stock Jumped, Hoping For Another Bounce On Friday Morning ?

Here is how Disney traded on Thursday. It has been a dog of a stock for years for a hundred different reasons. It also has a hundred different moving parts which when dissected could unleach value. It could be a $200.00 stock by this time next year. So after looking at this chart do you think and second wave of buying might be in the cards on it's Friday morning opening? Would buying Calls be wise, Calls that expire the very next day?
Can you see how the $110 Calls closed at $1.21 on Thursday after a wild ride all that day. Notice the closing "open interest". It's less than ten percent of the volume of the daily trading volume. That tells us that most of the traders don't want to take the risk to be in the game. Would you expect a Friday morning pop and would the $110.00 series be the one's to play? Here is the answer. First the chart of Friday's trading.
Now here is what the $110.00 Calls did on the day.
If you think next weeks Calls are more promising here is how they closed out the day on Friday. It's something to think about. The 30 day out Calls or longer might be better.
Disney was up smartly on the week. Do your research as to why.** A late Monday morning update, Feb 12th. Would you have the guts to hold onto your Call option over the weekend hoping for a second way of buying power to come in?
The options more than doubled.
