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.

Chargepoint Holdings And An Earnings Report. Do You Watch This Sector Of The Market?

Chargepoint has not traded over $2.00 a share in the last ninety days.
So why then was there so much trading today, a Tuesday in the "two series" of Call options on it which expire this Friday? Well an earnings report comes out tomorrow and these traders are hoping for a pop. Action in the $1.50 series" of Call options on it which expire this Friday were much more mutted but also offer potential to move upwards.
Are they expecting a pop that will raise the stock to over the $2.00 level? That is not necessarily needed. Even a more modest pop of twenty cents on good news would be enough to move the needle on these five cent or five dollar per contract options to then create a profitable exit point. The added security, albeit not much support in doing this trade is that there are two more trading days after Wednesday to potentially help it move higher in price. A pop to what level? Perhaps a pop to eight cents? Does that sound crazy? Well consider this. Americans get free trading, meaning no commissions in many of their trading accounts. Buy in at five dollars a contract and sell at six or seven dollars a contract. Make one hundred or two hundred dollars or lose that much if the earning report is not quite up to expections. In a way, it's very much just a game. Here was it's first quarter operating resuts. They do have cash on hand however they keep losing money. Let's see what happens.
In a recent blog I wrote about playing .01 and .02 cent options ($1.00 dollar and $2.00 dollars a contract) on the stock Ford. This trade I am now talking about is kind of the same type of "bottom fishing". It's trying to recognize a "blip-in-the-market"s that would only appeal to a small number of opportunistic traders. Power to them if they can make money on situations like this. Given the surge of contract traded on it today, it is apparent that some option traders are pinpointing this as being a tradable event. To be continued. A Wednesday check on this action at 3:20 p.m.. Bid $.07 ask $.08 with a high of nine.
Look at the crazy high volume. Its crazy when the stock is still well below the $2.00 level! More details to follow. Now the earning report. It was not so good however it wasn't all that bad. It has to be put into perspective that most shareholders have gotten in at higher prices so to them it is comforting to note that the lost this seems to be getting better and better every quarter. That might a positive signal. I can't see the stock jumping upwards in the next two days to the lofty $2.00 mark so these options might quickly lose their value.
Now the closing day readout. Note the high of $.10. which would have happened in the last half hour of trading.
Penny options can sometimes suprise. I will follow up with how this series of Calls survives the week. *** Then there is Blink. It was up 8% today.
Do your homework. A Thursday report on the $2.00 series of Chargepoint Calls. The party is over.
The stock is not going to $2.00.
