Traders Hungry For Nutrisystem Options As Shares Rise

Today’s tickers: NTRI, NEE & DDD

NTRI - Nutrisystem, Inc. – Shares in Nutrisystem rose more than 7.0% to a six-month high of $10.18 on Friday after the maker of weight loss products announced Thursday it has increased production of its Nutrisystem D 5-Day Jumpstart Weight Loss Kit to offer the product in 3,700 Walmart locations by the end June. Options in play on NTRI today indicate some traders are prepared to profit from further gains in the price of the underlying during the next couple of months. Traders initiating near-term bullish bets on the stock snapped up calls at the Jun $10 and $11 strikes, purchasing around 900 of the $10 calls for an average premium of $0.17 each and 500 of the $11 calls at a premium of $0.05 apiece. The Jul $10 strike calls are also changing hands today, with more than 500 of those contracts purchased at an average premium of $0.31 each. Looking out to the September expiry options, one or more traders appear to have purchased more than 200 of the Sep $11 calls for an average premium of $0.28 per contract. Buyers of the Sep $11 calls profit at expiration in the event that Nutrisystem’s shares gain another 10% to surpass the average breakeven price of $11.28.

NEE - NextEra Energy, Inc. – Clean energy company, NextEra Energy, Inc., popped up on our ‘hot by options volume’ market scanner in the early going on Friday due to heavier than usual trading traffic in upside calls. Traders dabbling in September expiry calls appear to be positioning for shares in NextEra to hit fresh record highs by expiration. The stock today is up 1.2% at $80.10 as of 1:05 p.m. ET. Traders appear to have purchased more than 750 calls at the Sep $82.5 strike for an average premium of $1.44 each. The bullish trade makes money at expiration as long as shares in NextEra rally 4.8% over the current price of $80.10 to top the average breakeven point at $83.94. NEE shares in…

NutriSystem Call Options Active As Shares Move Higher

 

Today’s tickers: NTRI, APKT & KKD

NTRI - NutriSystem, Inc. – Traders hoping to expand their wallets in the New Year are turning their attention to weight management services provider, NutriSystem, Inc., as shares in the name move up sharply, adding to recent gains. NTRI and its competitors are seen as beneficiaries of the perennial flood of “Resolutioners” that crowd into gyms, fitness centers and nutritionists offices touting various goals for the New Year. Shares in NutriSystem are currently up better than 7.5% on the day, and nearly 15% for the week, to stand at $8.97 as of 11:40 a.m. ET in New York trading on Friday. One or more options traders positioning for shares in NutriSystem to extend gains during the first few months of the New Year snapped up calls in the February and March expiries this morning. Roughly 1,100 call options changed hands at the Feb. $9.0 strike during the first half of the session, with most of the volume purchased for an average premium of $0.20 apiece. Traders long the calls stand ready to profit at expiration should shares in NTRI rally another 2.6% over the current price of $8.97 to top the average breakeven point at $9.20. Bullish activity spread to the Mar. $10 strike, where around 450 calls appear to have been purchased for an average premium of $0.15 each. Call buyers may profit at March expiration in the event that NTRI shares increase at least 13% over the current level to exceed $10.15 during the next 11 weeks. Shares in the provider of ready-to-eat meals last traded above $10.15 back in October of last year. Even after including this week’s gains in the price of the underlying, shares in NutriSystem are still down more than 40% since this time last year.

APKT - Acme Packet, Inc. – Double-digit percentage gains in shares of Acme Packet on the back of an upgrade to ‘Buy’ from ‘Hold’ at Stifel Nicolaus with a 12-month target share price of $27.00 on Friday has landed some options traders with hefty overnight paper profits on…

Overstock.com Calls In Play As Shares Hit Fresh 52-week High

 

Today’s tickers: OSTK, HMSY & NTRI

OSTK - Overstock.com, Inc. – Options on online retailer, Overstock.com, Inc., are more active than usual this morning as shares in the retailer of closeout and discount merchandise rally sharply for a second straight day. Shares in Overstock.com rallied as much as 40% since Thursday morning when the company reported it swung to a third-quarter profit of $0.11 a share from a loss of $0.33 a share in the year ago quarter. The stock is off its highs of the session, but currently trades up 5.85% as of midday on Friday to stand at $14.30. Options traders positioning for shares in Overstock.com to extend gains in the near term snapped up front month calls this morning. Volume is heaviest at the Nov. $15 strike, where upwards of 700 call options are in play versus previously existing open interest of 10 contracts. Most of the volume appears to have been purchased for an average premium of $0.36 apiece, thus preparing buyers to profit should shares in OSTK tack on another 7% in the next three weeks to settle above an average breakeven price of $15.36 at November expiration. Shares are currently trading at their highest level since July 2011.

HMSY - HMS Holdings Corp. – Shares in the provider of cost management services for government-sponsored health and human services programs are getting hammered today, plunging 27% earlier in the session to a four-year low of $19.66. The stock dropped after HMS Holdings Corp. posted weaker-than-expected third-quarter earnings ahead of the opening bell and lowered its 2012 earnings and revenue forecast from prior estimates. Interestingly, options activity on HMSY suggests one or more options traders are taking a near-term contrarian view on the stock, positioning for the price of the underlying to rebound somewhat by November expiration. It looks like traders purchased 2,000 calls at the Nov. $22.5 strike for an average premium of $0.50 apiece. These contracts may be profitable…

Large Put Play Reflects Investor Optimism on General Electric Co.

Today’s tickers: GE, XLE, DOW, BP, SKX, IYR, ZION, RIG, AA & NTRI

GE – General Electric Co. – Shares of diverse conglomerate, General Electric Company, slipped 3.85% during afternoon trading to stand at $18.52 with one hour remaining in the session. Although a great deal of bearish activity took place on GE today, there was one sizeable contrarian options play on the stock that stuck out like a sore thumb. One investor, who apparently does not anticipate an all-out collapse in the price of the underlying stock, shed 19,000 puts at the December $14 strike to pocket a premium of $0.52 per contract. The trader keeps the full amount of premium received on the put sale, which adds up to a grand total of $988,000.00, as long as GE’s shares trade above $14.00 through expiration day in December. The investor receives the premium in exchange for bearing the risk that shares of the underlying stock do not exceed $14.00 through expiration. If the December $14 strike puts land in-the-money at expiration, the trader is apparently willing to have 1.9 million GE shares put to him at an effective price of $13.48 apiece. Shares would need to plummet 27% from the current price of $18.52 before the put-seller starts to amass losses beneath the breakeven share price of $13.48. Options implied volatility on General Electric Co. is up 15% to 31.94% ahead of the closing bell.

XLE – Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF – Two options strategies representing opposing sentiment on future share price moves for the XLE were enacted today in the June contract. One of the transactions, a ratio call spread, is bullish and positions one investor to benefit should shares of the underlying fund rally sharply by expiration. The other trade, a short straddle, yields maximum benefits to the responsible party if shares settle at $59.00 by expiration. Shares of the XLE, an exchange-traded fund that seeks investment results which correspond to the price and yield performance of the Energy Select Sector of the S&P 500 Index, fell 2.75% to $58.93 as of 3:15 pm (ET). The bullish trader responsible for the ratio call spread purchased 3,500 calls at the June $61 strike for an average premium of $1.36 apiece, and sold 7,000 calls at the higher June $64 strike for roughly $0.49 apiece. The net cost of the ratio spread amounts to $0.38 per contract, and…

Qualcomm Bull Itching for a Sharp Rally in Shares by July Expiration

Today’s tickers: QCOM, KBE, XRT, GE, BAC, F, UPS, UAUA & NTRI

QCOM – Qualcomm, Inc. – The manufacturer of digital wireless telecommunications products and services received a vote of confidence by one optimistic options investor who purchased a debit call spread in the July contract today. Qualcomm’s shares rallied 0.55% in late afternoon trading to stand at $42.84 as of 2:45 pm (ET). The trader initiated the call spread by purchasing 4,000 lots at the July $46 strike for a premium of $1.00 each, marked against the sale of 4,000 calls at the higher July $49 strike for $0.37 apiece. Net premium paid for the bullish play amounts to $0.63 per contract, thus positioning the investor to amass maximum potential profits of $2.37 per contract should Qualcomm’s shares rally 14.4% over the current value of the stock to $49.00 by expiration day in July. The parameters of the transaction suggest the responsible party hopes Qualcomm’s share price shifts toward the stock’s current 52-week high of $49.80, attained back on January 8, 2010, in the next several months to expiration.

KBE – SPDR KBW Bank ETF – Shares of the SPDR KBW Bank fund, which replicates the performance of the KBW Bank Index, slipped 0.75% during the course of the trading day to stand at $28.18 with 35 minutes remaining in the session. Earlier today, one investor pocketed a net credit by selling a large chunk of call options spread against the purchase of put contracts. The trader sold 28,260 calls at the May $29 strike for a premium of $0.58 each, and purchased the same number of puts at the lower May $27 strike for $0.40 apiece. A net credit of $0.18 per contract pads the investor’s wallet as long as shares of the underlying fund trade below $29.00 through expiration day in May. Additional profits are available should shares slip beneath $27.00 in the next several weeks. The transaction may be linked to an underlying share position. If this is the case, the put options serve as downside protection should the fund’s share price erode, but the short position in calls could result in the investor having the underlying shares called away from him at expiration should the call contracts land in-the-money at that time.

XRT – SPDR S&P Retail ETF – A massive bearish transaction on the XRT, an exchange-traded fund which seeks to replicate the performance…

Gold-Bull Buys Call Spread on Newmont Mining Corp.

Today’s tickers: NEM, EWZ, ZION, JCP, PCX, TSL, NTRI, TIVO, SQNM & KR

NEM – Newmont Mining Corp. – Shares of the gold mining company are up 2.90% to $51.74 this afternoon as gold stocks across the board rallied along with the price of the previous metal. Newmont’s shares recovered significantly since reaching a low point for the year 2010 of $42.87 back on January 29, 2010. The current price per NEM share of $51.74 represents an impressive 20.65% rally over its January low of $42.87. One options trader populating our screens today expects the good times at Newmont Mining to continue through March expiration. The investor purchased a debit call spread by picking up 5,000 calls at the March $55 strike for a premium of $0.52 apiece, marked against the sale of 5,000 calls at the higher March $57.5 strike for $0.17 each. The net cost of the transaction amounts to $0.36 per contract. The trader is prepared to pocket maximum potential profits of $2.14 per contract should Newmont’s shares rally another 11.15% to $57.50 by expiration day. Shares of the underlying stock must increase at least 7% from the current price in order for the call-spreader to breakeven on the trade at $55.36 per share.

EWZ – iShares MSCI Brazil Index ETF – Bearish options positioning on the Brazil exchange-traded fund, which generally reflects the price and yield performance of securities in the Brazilian market as measured by the MSCI Brazil index, indicates one investor is bracing for a pull back in the price of the underlying shares by April expiration. Shares of the underlying fund are trading 1.85% higher to $70.97 with approximately forty-five minutes remaining in the session. The trader sold 10,000 calls at the April $72 strike for a premium of $2.55 apiece in order to partially offset the cost of purchasing 10,000 put options at the lower April $70 strike for $2.73 each. The investor paid a net premium of $0.18 per contract for the bearish risk reversal transaction. The pessimistic play yields profits to the trader if shares of the EWZ trade beneath the breakeven price of $69.82 ahead of expiration in April. We note that shares traded as low as $62.79 on February 8, 2010, and failed to rally above $70.00 until the current session’s breakout.

ZION – Zions Bancorp. – A bullish options player celebrated the 2.80% rally in ZION’s share…

Frothy Friday – Churn Baby Churn!

What a wild week we are having!

We dumped our shorts as planned yesterday morning, getting a very nice dip at the open and my 9:36 Alert to Members was even titled "Take Those Short Profits!" and our upside targets were set (as they were in the morning post) at: Dow 10,087, S&P 1,096, Nasdaq 2,173, NYSE 7,204 and Russell 623.  Where did we finish?  Dow 1,081, S&P 1,092, Nasdaq 2,165, NYSE 7,182 and Russell 613 – so a bit short of all of our targets but not bad considering we were opening 167 points below that on the Dow so perhaps I can be forgiven for a 6-point miss

Even our free PSW Report readers would have done great just following the trades we had in last week's Wrap-Up (Report subscribers get to read our articles without the 48-hour delay).  We had GS Nov $210s shorted at .87, now .35 (up 60%), CERN short $85 calls at $4.15, now $3.10 (up 25%), ISRG Apr puts and calls sold for $39.20, now $36 (up 8%), PARD at $6.87, now $7.35 (up 7%), NTRI at $18.60, now $19.15 (up 3%)… 

We had other trades that are still in progress.  ICE notably burned us so far, but we rolled them up and shorted them some more yesterday  (now $106.56).  We've had a wild mix of short and long trades this week as we TRY to get more bullish on the markets but yesterday's run-up had us

Weekly Wrap-Up – 10,000 or Bust!

I think I was right on the money last week when I said:

The bar for corporate earnings is still set at very easy to beat levels yet, like this limbo-playing child, when they announce their beats of very low expectations we’re going to get all excited and tell them how great they are doing.  The problem is, these are not kids who we hope may grow up one day to be President or CEOs of major companies. these ARE CEOs of major companies and they are being paid top salaries for top performance and we, the stock purchasing public, are paying top dollar for what should be SPECTACULAR performance, not beating 75% off last year’s earnings by a penny! 

In that post, I rattled off a list of stocks that seemed overpriced to me: AMZN, BIDU, AM, PALM, NFLX, PCLN, URBN, UHS, CERN, CREE, GMCR, CY, SWM, TRLG, BKE and you would have had a fabulous week just shorting those stocks as only NFLX, URBN and CREE stayed positive.  Now most newsletter writers would quit right there and make a giant ad saying they were 12 for 15 on the week but, as our members know, THAT'S NO BIG DEAL AT PSW!  I'm just going to remind members that they can refer friends to FREE advice like that in our trial newsletter and earn 20% or more off their subscriptions for doing it. 

Picking stocks is easy but a few percent here and a few percent there isn't much fun is it?  On that list, the two we attacked were AMZN and BIDU, both of which ran (in our opinion) way too high AND had very liquid and very overpriced call options that we could sell to collect premiums.  AMZN is a staple short in our $100K Virtual Portfolio and we had set up BIDU the week before, selling Oct $420 calls for $8.30 and the Oct $430 calls for $7,20.  While both went higher on Monday, the fact that we had a plan for managing the trade kept us from panicking and, thankfully, Monday was the only day those positions gave us trouble and both finished the week worthless (100% profit for us). 

Adjusting our positions kept us busy this week as we STILL have a slightly bearish

Potash Attracts Option Plays as Shares Increase

Today’s tickers: POT, EWZ, USO, C, NTRI, GFI, AUY, AA, & WYE

POT - Shares of the Canadian producer of potash rallied more than 5% during the trading session to break through the $90.00-level. The stock tempered this afternoon, however, and stands just 2.5% higher for the day at $87.89. We observed interesting bullish plays take place in the December contract. One investor established a 2,000-lot buy-write strategy, also known as a covered call. The covered call involved the purchase of shares of the underlying stock for approximately $90.74, and the simultaneous sale of 2,000 call options at the December 110 strike for a premium of 1.80 per contract. The cost of buying the stock is reduced by the value of the premium received on the sale of the calls, resulting in an effective price per share of $88.94. Additionally, the short call position serves as an exit strategy for the trader if shares of POT trade above $110.00 by expiration. If the December 110 strike calls land in-the-money, the investor will likely have the underlying shares called from him, and he will be left with net profits of 24% on the rally in the stock. The other strategy employed by POT-lovers this afternoon was a call spread. Investors purchased 5,000 calls at the December 115 strike for 1.25 each, and sold 5,000 calls at the higher December 120 strike for 85 cents premium apiece. – Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan, Inc. –

EWZ - Shares of the Brazil exchange-traded fund are slightly higher this afternoon by less than 0.5% to stand at $69.58. Option traders expecting continued bullish movement in the price of the fund initiated optimistic plays across several contracts. One nearer-term indication of bullish sentiment is a call spread in the November contract. The trade likely involves the purchase of 2,000 calls at the November 71 strike for a premium of 3.23 apiece, spread against the sale of 2,000 calls at the higher November 77 strike for one dollar each. The net cost of the transaction amounts to 2.23 per contract. Thus, maximum potential profits of 3.77 are available in the event that shares of the EWZ rally 11% to $77.00 by expiration next month. Plain-vanilla call buying is another tactic employed by bullish investors today. Some 2,500 calls were purchased at the March 2010 80 strike for a premium of 2.70 each. Finally, 1,000 calls were coveted by…

A Vault for Valero Means Call Option Feeding-Frenzy as Expiration Nears

Today’s tickers: VLO, NTRI, EFA, BAX & WFC

VLO - We can explain in part the activity in the September 20 strike call options, which is due to expire at the weekend. That’s straight forward. It’s now in the money following a 9% share price gain to $20.97. Investors have possibly built up a substantial short position at the start of August in the expectation that share would remain below $20 as they have since they collapsed on June 2. Selling short the calls means they stand to retain the premium if the stock price remains south of the border. We see little news to set off today’s enthusiasm for Valero, but the rally that has put the calls into the money has the potential to spark a significant amount of short covering. Options open interest here is around 33,000 while today’s volume is at around 29,000. Expiration Friday tomorrow should be fun. – Valero Energy Corp. –

NTRI - The weight management products and services firm, which offers portion-controlled pre-packaged meals that can apparently satisfy ex-NFL quarterback Dan Marino’s appetite, edged onto our ‘hot by options volume’ market scanner this morning. Shares of NTRI have surged more than 6% today to $15.84, inspiring bullish options action in the October contract. It appears some 3,200 calls were purchased at the October 17.5 strike for an average premium of 25 cents per contract. Investors will begin to accumulate profits if shares of the weight management company rally 12% higher to breach the breakeven point at $17.75 by expiration next month. The rise in demand for options on NTRI helped fuel the 24% burst in option implied volatility on the stock from an intra-day low of 41% to a high of 51%. – NutriSystem Inc. –

EFA - Shares of the exchange traded fund representing stocks from Europe, Australasia, and the Far East have come off slightly today to stand less than 0.25% lower at $55.78. Perhaps fearing further bearish movement in the stock, investors coveted approximately 25,000 puts at the October 53 strike for an average premium of 73 cents apiece. Traders picking up the put options may currently hold long positions in the underlying stock meaning a 6% decline for shares of the EFA would be protected by put option exposure and that would kick in beneath the breakeven price of $52.27. – iShares MSCI EAFE Index ETF –

BAX - “Swine Flu”…
