Top Trades for Mon, 22 May 2017 13:50 – AAXN, VZ, Watch List

Visiting our Watch List (now with 24 stocks – trade ideas on that post).  These are some of the stocks we still like for a purchase:

AAXN (was TASR):  We never officially completed this trade so let's do so now in the OOP (prices have been updated to today):

TASR (5/22) – Our Stock of the Decade has pulled back to only 350% above our $5 entry so we're interested again.  A combination of widespread civil unrest and too many cameras (which TASR sells too) makes it impolitic to shoot protestors (though beating grannies seems fine).  There's a lot of competition in the body camera biz but TASR owns the stun gun market and those relationships give them a big advantage over the competition.  Sales are not a problem for TASR – camera sales were up 150% from last year with overall growth at 46% – it's a margin issue ("only" 60%) and margins can be fixed quickly in electronics.   This one is a buy for us as we took $29 and ran last year and now, getting back in is a must near $22.  We already have 5 short 2019 $20 puts in the OOP at $3.20 and we can add 10 2019 $20 calls ($7.30) and sell 10 2019 $27 calls ($3.80) for net $3.50 ($3,500) less $3.20 ($1,600) we originally collected is net $1,900 on the $7,000 spread with $5,100 (268%) upside potential.  

BMY still cheap:

DAL looks like it will break up (Buffett thinks so):

ESRX – We sold 5 2019 $65 puts for $7.50 in the LTP, now $9.20.

FCX – That strike isn't helping but copper is solid at $2.50 so think of the comps compared to last year:

FMCC – If they bring the 10% deposits back, these guys could be poppin'  

GCI – We bought the stock (2,000) and sold Oct $7.50 calls for $1.10 and $7.50 puts for 0.60 and they've flipped now but we're right on target.  

GILD – Always a bargain these days:

LB – I don't think they'll stay down here much longer:

M – silly cheap:

SVU – Still under $4 but if they break over – $5 will come quick:

TGT – Still very cheap at $55ish  

VZ – Becoming a value stock down here:

In the LTP, let's sell 5 VZ 2019 $50 puts for $8.60 ($4,300) to make our monthly nut.  Good placeholder to keep an eye on them and super-efficient as ordinary margin is just $2,566.

XOM – Another value stock at $82.50.  This we already have in the LTP from 2/13.

Don't say there's nothing to buy!
