MomentumOptionsTrading.com Weekly Wrap Profit Alert for 2/3/2014

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

3:15pm (EST)

We have action to take on a trade in our Weekly Wrap newsletter that returned us 41%.  We got into the stock at $4.95 in early December and shares recently traded to a high of $9.74.  We have been adjusting our stop up to lock-in profits and with today’s widespread market selloff, our stop limit has triggered.

Our Track Record for the Weekly Wrap is now 8-1 for 2014, 93-8 over a 3-year period. 

Subscribers, check the Members Area/ Weekly Wrap Premium section for the update and stay close to your email inboxes into the close in case we have additional Profit Alerts or possible New Trades!

(Special 1-Year Subscription Offers – Guess the Dow, Win a NEW iPad!)

 12:05pm (EST)

(Special Note:  Please go to our website today to see all of the charts and quotes.  Also, if you are a current subscribers, please go to the Members Area to see the charts.  They will help you understand the trades a lot better as you will see the picture we are painting.)

We missed a beautiful trade this morning on a stock we have been following for years and one we recently listed on our Watch List.  Our Watch List is designed to follow possible trades as we wait for key support or resistance levels to clear before going long or short using call or put options.  These trades aren’t official recommendations but they can become one once we get the signal.

We have trying to get into some call options on a stock that was just under $40 and a level we were waiting to clear before going long call options.  Unfortunately, ViroPharma (VPHM, $49.43, up $10.05) got a buyout offer before we could get in and shares have soared 25% after closing Friday at $39.38.

VPHMc111113

The stock had been trading in a tight of $37-39 for over a month after surging from $30 to over $40 in mid-September on buyout rumors.  We knew another possible big move was coming again following the consolidation phase and the peak in September came at $40.89.  We were going to get into these call options on a close above $40 that we were looking for to happen this week.

The ViroPharma December 45 calls (VPHM131221C0004500, $4.50, up $4.05) closed at 45 cents on Friday and are up an astounding 900% as you can see from the Yahoo Finance option quote below.  A 10-contract trade for $450 would be worth $4,500!

VPHM111113

The January 45 calls (VPHM140118C00045000, $4.60, up $3.60) were going for a buck on Friday and have zoomed 355%.

VPHMb111113

We can’t take credit for the trade because it wasn’t an “official” recommendation so you won’t see it on our 2013 Track Record but these are the types of returns that are possible with options and prove they are the most lucrative investments in the world.  Some of our astute traders have sent us emails today thanking us for profiling the trade and we are so glad they made some bank to start the week.

We have been on a roll all year and although we missed this trade, we do have a New Trade today that could post the same type of returns.  The stock is a current stock trade recommendation for our Weekly Wrap and one we expect to double but with the options we are recommending today we are looking to make 500%.  Seriously.

 

A quick look at the market:  The Dow is up 19 points to 15,781 while the S&P 500 is advancing a point to 1,771.  The Nasdaq is down a point to 3,917 while the Russell 2000 is higher by a point to 1,101.

Subscribers, check the Members Area for the New Trades and we could have additional Trade Alerts today so stay locked-and-loaded.

***********************************************

Special 1-Year Subscription Offers – Guess the Dow, Win a NEW iPad!

It is that time of year where we offer our best discounts and our best deal on subscriptions to our Daily and Weekly Wrap newsletters.  The reason we do this simple.  It gives new traders wanting to learn the stock and options market and an incredible discount and seasoned traders the opportunity to receive all of our stock and option recommendations for an entire year without interuption.

To be a successful trader of the market, you must do your homework every day and every weekend.  It requires 100 hours a week of hard work as you have to plan for events, draw charts, prepare for earnings, watch overseas markets, the political picture and to identify trends before they develop or how long they will last.

In fact, one of our favorite quotes from the history books when it comes to market survival:

“If you are ready to give up everything else – to study the whole history and background of the market and all the principal companies… as carefully as a medical student studies anatomy – … and, in addition, you have the cool nerves of a great gambler, the sixth sense of a clairvoyant, and the courage of a lion, you have a ghost of a chance.”

We are proud to say we are closing out our 6th-straight year of profitability and we doubt there are many option newsletters that can make this claim.  If any.

We know to trade up, down, flat and volatile markets and we have proven ourselves year after year with twice Daily updates and a 6-year Track Record that profiles ALL of our trading recommendations.  Most financial newsletters don’ have Track Records so how can you possibly trust them.

The option websites that promise huge returns only talk about their wins, not the losses.  Some of them will count a winning trade twice if they recommended closing out half positions but that is a smoke-and-mirror tactic that hides the true overall performance of a portfolio and the percentages on if they were right or wrong about a trade.

We don’t roll that way and this is why many option newsletters have come and gone over the years.  We could name names but the so called “pros” that aren’t around anymore hurt the market and investor’s trust.

It is one of the main reasons we have verified results through our auto-trading partners and why we have grown our relationships in the business.  All of our trade recommendations are time-stamped and dated and with several auto-trading partners that take the trades for our subscribers.  In other words, we are very transparent.

We do this to earn investors trust because we know people are skeptical and sometimes find it hard to believe you can make more in one option trade than most people make in a year.  Seriously.

There is also the risk of one trade losing money and we always try to have 5-15 open trades at once.  The key to successful option trading is riding the tend and taking quick profits on stocks that move 5%-10%.

When a stock moves 5%-10%, and sometimes 20%, the option gains can be 100%, 300%, and even 500%-800% in some cases.

We often hear the Average Joe can’t make money in the market but what we don’t hear is the reason they failed is because they didn’t do their homework.  Luckily you have us and we enjoy what we do.

However, we do like to teach investors about stocks and the market because we believe everyone has the potential to manage their own money and to find there own trades.

We have written an option trading manual that explains how to become a successful option trader that includes bi-monthly videos.  By taking charge of your financial investments it will empower you  to learn the market in a way you never knew was possible.

Would you like to tell your friends about a $4 pizza stock that is now and $8 and could go to $20 over the next 12-24 months.  You can if you are a member of our Weekly Wrap.  Or how about telling your friends about an earnings trade  that returned 200% in a day?  Or a biotech that made you 400%.  You can if you are a subscriber to our Daily.

You can also find these trades on your own by reading our option trading manual, How to Trade Options on Momentum Stocks and watching our videos.  Here is a link that will describe the course benefits and what it covers by clicking here:

The course is valued at $895 and will be included at NO CHARGE with your purchase of a 1-year membership to our Daily newsletter.

The regular price of a 1-year deal to the Daily is $924, a discount of 40% instead of of the $129 monthly price.  If we knock that price down to $789, it will be a 50% discount and you will get our updated copy of the options trading course for 2014.  The new manuals will ship in December and will be mailed to your doorstep at no charge.

You will need this coupon code to the Special Offer (please copy and paste)

Coupon code:  9AD21

And go here for the 1-year deal  (please make sure you choose the 1-year subscription option)

We are also offering our Weekly Wrap that is now an astounding 84-5 since inception with numerous triple-digit winners.  This newsletter is for investors that may only want to trade 2-4 times a month instead of 4-5 a week for the Daily.

The Weekly Wrap is a “safer” way to play options as we use a mixture of different strategies to play the market.  We have a Track Record of nearly 70% for all of our option trades but this newsletter has a 95% success rate!

You can save 50% on a 1-year deal to the Weekly Wrap by using this coupon code:

SAVE-50

Please go here for the Weekly Wrap subscription:

This coupon works for all subscription models for the Weekly Wrap but not the Daily.

To encourage you to sign up for both newsletters for a 1-year deal, we are offering this bonus to all of our subscribers that do.

If you purchase a 1-year deal to both our newsletters, you will have the opportunity to win the newest version of the iPad!

In December 2012, we acquired NextOptions.com  - a successful options website with hundreds of subscribers and thousands of readers.  Our goal has been to get more coverage of our Weekly Wrap to give our research team the credit they deserve.  The newsletter has posted an amazing 84-5 Track Record since 2011.  We are 40-4 this year.

We offered NextOptions subscribers an incredible discount to stay with us through the transition and you have been well rewarded as we have doubled a $10,000 trading account this year for the Weekly Wrap.  NextOptions subscribers, Thank You for your trust in us.  Current Momentum Options subscribers, Thank You for supporting us from the start.

We use a mixture of covered calls and stock trading ideas to make solid double-digit monthly gains and we have recently added LEAPs, straddle and strangle options trades with possible returns of 100% or more. (A recent LEAP call option trade returned our subscribers 198%).

We also profile one company a week and we cover a bevy of possible earnings trades and where we get our ideas for our Daily newsletter.  The Weekly Wrap contains the exact same official trade recommendations for both MomentumOptionsTrading.com and NextOptions.com so there is no difference between the 2 sites except for some of the Daily content.

We are also giving away one American Eagle Silver coin a month by guessing the Dow.  Details are on the NextOptions.com website and it does not cost anything to enter but you do have to be a member.

As far as winning the iPad, once you have signed up for BOTH the 1-year Daily subscription and the 1-year Weekly Wrap you will need to have your entry on where the Dow will close at the end of DECEMBER by November 30, 2013 by midnight.

Emails need to be sent to support at either site - with the subject line “Dow iPad Guess”.  We will also send you an email to verify your guess in case those of you have problems.  You will need to enter 2 decimals as well to your end of year guess for the Dow.

For current MomentumOptionTrading Weekly Wrap readers, you can still keep your subscription with us but you will have to visit NextOptions.com to enter the monthly contest to win a shiny silver dollar.  However, you cans still signup for the iPad contest and have the emails from MomentumOptionsTrading.com.  All of the trades are the same and are released at the same times with updates as needed for both sites.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call us.  We have added extra staff but please realize we will be slammed with this offer.

Please do us a favor and tell your friends about us and encourage them to use the special discount coupon code.  Remember, your subscription should be a tax write-off (check with your accountant) so take advantage of the tax laws.

We also realize many of you may or may not support both sites and we do this to guarantee the best prices of the year.

You can also email us to view all of our Track Record results and here are some of the monster trades we have recommended over the past few months:

SPECIAL OFFER!/ S&P Testing All-Time Highs/ Amazon (AMZN) After the Bell/ New Trade!

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

12:40pm (EST)

The bulls are pushing all-time highs ahead of tomorrow’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) report and all signs are pointing to a break out of the current trading range to new highs or a pullback and a test back down to the bottom of the trading range.

Amazon.com (AMZN, $272.71, up $3.93) is scheduled to report their quarterly numbers after the close tonight and Wall Street is looking for earnings of $9 cents a share on revenue of $16.2 billion.  The stock trades erratically after they confess to Wall Street as shares have traded up on “bad news” and down on “good news” in years past.

The company has plans to introduce a set top box to better manage its online streaming content and to get more users to shop their site from their TV.  There isn’t a lot of money to be made on the boxes themselves but gaining a potential customer to browse their site and buy things is a cheap way of attracting them.

One company that we have been following for years and is often traded in our Daily is Akamai Technologies (AKAM, $43.00, up $6.91) and is up 20% today.  Shares had been struggling at $36 with support/ resistance and we knew this would be a big quarter for them.  If the growth didn’t return shares would probably test $30 but if they came in with better-than-expected numbers we knew there was a chance shares could fly past $40.

The company reported a profit of $0.51 a share on revenue of $368 million versus expectations for $0.46 a share on revenue of $357 million.  Although we sat on the sidelines, the May 40 calls (AKAM130518C00040000, $3.33, up $2.55) are zooming on the news as they are up 327% on the earnings beat.

We have continued to say Akamai is a takeover target and we have said Apple (AAPL, $409.76, up $4.30) should buy the company.  Shares have hit a 52-week high of $43.42 but have folded like a cheap lawn chair every time they have tried to hold $40.  Maybe this go round will be different.

Another stock getting a nice pop is a small-cap company from our Weekly Wrap.  We have been pounding the table on this incredible growth story for over a year now and we originally profiled the stock at $4.50.  Shares traded down to $3 earlier this year and we said support would hold and that you should back the truck up.  We said once they cleared $3.80 and then $4 they would quickly shoot past $5.  Today shares are soaring past $7 and have traded up to $7.40.

Our Weekly Wrap is 12-1 for 2013 and 56-3 overall since we started the publication and we have a number of other current trades that are doing well.  The newsletter doesn’t get the fame-and-glory that the Daily does because investors are enamored with triple-digit option trades and often ignore they safety of covered call trading or speculative investments and double-digit returns.

Most of our Daily subscribers are yearly members to the Weekly Wrap and if you are not a current subscriber to the publication, we urge you to take advantage of this discounted offer to join us for 3 months at an incredible low rate.  We have made it a reasonable price so you can get in on this s mall-cap stock that is headed to double-digits and we also have a few other gems that could made moves of 50% or more.

Use this coupon code below and associate it with the 3-month Weekly Wrap and you can join us for a over a 50% savings!  The cost is just $129 and is normally priced at $261.

Special Offer Membership and Chance to Win an iPad

Friday, December 7th, 2012

12:05pm (EST)

We love Christmas time as it is our favorite holiday of the year.  It is nice to receive cards, letters, and gifts but it is more about caring.  Our subscribers mean a lot to us and every year we offer a huge discount on yearly memberships because we want you to learn how the market works and we want you to find your own trades.  More importantly, we want you to make money.  There is no bigger thrill once you learn to trade options and find your own trade that returns you 500% in a matter of days or hours.

We are a high risk/ high reward option investment Daily newsletter and we also offer “safer” option and stock trades through our Weekly Wrap newsletter.  The Daily newsletter targets triple-digit returns for every trade and offers 2-3 trades a week, depending on market conditions.  We have nearly 200 trades on the books this year and our Track Record is 122-54 for nearly a 70% win rate.  We have recommended over 30 triple-digit winners with gains up to 400%-500% and most trade recommendations range from 50%-80% returns.

For our Weekly Wrap, we are 26-0 on trade recommendations.  We were 16-0 in 2011 and we are 42-0 since inception.  Overall for 2012, our Track Record is 147-54 which is a 73% success rate.  This is by far, one of the best, if not the best, option trading services out there.  We have not had a losing year since we started the newsletter in 2008.

The cost for a 1-year membership is $924 for the Daily.  This is $77/ month and much less than the $97 or $129 monthly memberships.  The Weekly Wrap is also $924 for a 1-year deal.

We will be offering them BOTH for $924.  This is a 50% savings.

We also offer an option trading course, How to Trade Options on Momentum Stocks, that is valued at $895.  The course comes with bi-monthly videos and currently has dozens of videos on trade setups, how to find trades, and how to read charts.  The course is also shipped to you at no charge and you can read more here.

We are also doing two more special incentives.  One is we are offering an extra 20% discount through this weekend only that will lower the price to $740/ or around $60 a month for both publications.

We do this because we will be printing the new, updated option trading manual with more charts and tips, and we need to know how many we need to print and to keep our costs (and yours) as low as possible.  After this weekend, there will not be a 20% discount but you can still get both the Daily and Weekly Wrap for $924.

The iPad offer is this.  If you signup this weekend for the 1-year deal, you will be eligible to enter an educated guess on where the Dow will be on the last trading day of the year at the close on December 31, 2012.

We will take all entries by Sunday night by midnight (EST) and we will confirm them with each subscriber.  The one who comes the closest on the Dow, over or under, will win a brand new iPad.

Your prediction must list the Dow’s closing price with two decimal points.  In other words, if you believe the Dow will end at 13,600 – you will need to use 13,600.00.

The coupon code for the 20% discount and the special deal will end Sunday night.  You will need to click on the 1-year Daily subscription link and enter the code to get the discount.  You will need to email our support team no later than 11:59pm (EST), Sunday, December 9, 2012.  We will list the high and low predictions on Tuesday morning.

You can also call us if you have questions.

The special offer will run through December but in order to get the EXTRA 20% discount and the chance to win a beautiful, brand spanking new iPad, you must signup this weekend!

We cannot break these rules so please do not write and ask us on Monday if it is too late to get in.  It would not be fair to other subscribers.

The next video for our option course will be out soon and we will be covering a host of topics so make sure you get on board.  This is by far, the best deal we offer and it only comes along once a year.

Here is the coupon and please be sure to click the 1-year Daily membership.

As we head to press, the Dow is up 31 points to 13,105 while the S&P 500 is lower by 2 points to 1,412.  The Nasdaq is off 17 points to 2,972.

Have a GREAT weekend everyone and we will be beack Monday Morning!

Market Above Resistance, Pfizer (PFE) Slips

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

1:35pm (EST)

Over the years, we have covered quite a few explosive biotech stocks that have made incredible returns for our subscribers but sometimes we can overlook the 800-pound gorillas in the room.

We have been following shares of Pfizer (PFE, $23.84, down $0.42) for years but we rarely, if ever, play options on the stock as a directional call or put play.  Shares don’t quite move as much as they did in the late 90’s which saw the stock split 4 times and growth was abundant.  Nowadays, there is risk associated in owning the stock as some of Pfizer’s drugs come off patient and face competition risks.

There are also risks with developing new drugs as research and development, clinical trials, and marketing can get expensive.  However, getting a multi-billion dollar blockbuster drug approved and to market can be lucrative for years to come.

Pfizer had high hopes for its Alzheimer’s drug, Bapineuzumab, which it was in development with Johnson & Johnson (JNJ, $68.37, down $0.48) and Elan (ELN, $10.87, down $0.38) but halted plans to develop the drug after another trial failure.

Bapineuzumab was in the second stage of a final 4-stage trial but failed to improve the symptoms of dementia.  In late July, the drug also failed a late-stage trial.

Alzheimer’s is a hard disease to crack and there hasn’t been much advancement in finding a cure.  Pfizer decided to pull the plug and go back to the drawing board but they will be looking to partner with another biotech company that may have a new cure for Alzheimer’s in their pipeline.

Shares of Pfizer looked like a steal under $20 but we waffled on the chance to buy it in the high teens and add it to our Weekly Wrap covered call portfolio.  We mentioned a few years ago Pfizer should’ve have taken a hard look at Vivus (VVUS, $23.24, up $2.02) or Arena Pharmaceuticals (ARNA, $7.41, up $0.20) as a possible play in the obesity market but they ignored us.

We have done well with Vivus and Arena this year by playing both the stock and options.  Vivus has returned our subscribers numerous double-digit gains over the past couple of years.  In 2011, we recommended covered calls 3 times that made our subscribers 18%, 17% and 14% as shares traded below $10 for much of the year.  In January, we went back to the well and suggested another Vivus covered call trade that made our subscribers 38% by March.

We also started recommending Arena back in February when shares were just above $2.  We used the juicy premiums in the calls options to lower our risk to $1.88 and in July our Weekly Wrap subscribers closed a trade for a 117% return.  In March, we made 12% on a quick Arena call option trade but rolled the position over in late April and early May to get repositioned. Those 2 call options trades made our subscribers 464% and 54%, respectively.

Although we don’t own Pfizer, we did reload on Vivus again in July and we are hoping to make a double-digit profit by next Friday with the trade.  As far as Pfizer, we would love to see shares fall back to $20 but support is strong at $22 and we doubt shares fall 10% on this news.  They could over the next few weeks and we are watching Pfizer closely as a possible covered call trade, but for now, we are happy holding Vivus.

As far as the market, the bulls have pierced resistance and have cleared our next wave of price targets.  We will have to see how the indexes end at the close but we are still waiting to see if there will be a breakout.  In the meantime, we have a couple of trades in our Weekly Wrap that are allowing us to enjoy the upside and the new trades for our Daily have September expiration dates so we have plenty of time to wait for a pullback while the bulls continue running.

When the market is in a trading range, it is best to have both long and short positions which should offset some of the volatility we have been seeing.  Although we are itchy to trade, we are trying to remain disciplined to avoid the urge of adding call options or buying more puts until we get a few more signals on where this market is headed over the next month or two and not just today.

As we head to press, the Dow is up 97 points to 13,214 while the S&P is higher by 12 points to 1,406.  The Nasdaq is popping 35 points and is at 3,024.  Subscribers, check the Members Area for the updates.

Trader Comments:
    I just want you to know that I love the way you write and explain everything. I am new to this, and have lost 50% of my account until I met you guys. Iit is slowly coming back. I will be calling to set up a year of membership rather than the one quarter. Thanks again, and LOVE YOU ALL. REGINA L.

    Rick, I appreciate the advice. I think I will just sit back and utilize your selections only for awhile. This will obviously save me a great deal of money in commissions. I have gone thru your entire site including the video on money management. This has brought me to the stark realization that I have been trading too much for too little. I definitely have not been "swinging for the fences", but I also think I have been getting impatient with trades and getting out too fast. This has no doubt caused me too trade too much. I like, and definitely agree on, the advice on money management. Thanks for the help. STEVE T.

    Thank you!!! I held on to the NFLX position since Nov. 13 at a cost of $1.89. Sold ½ on April 14th for a 540% return and the other ½ upon earnings for 702% return. Total profit of $11,615 a 621% return. Keep the recommendations coming and thanks to you and your team for the service you provide. SCOTT H.

    Rick & Team, GREAT Call on NKE for my two trading accounts:
    1) Entry at .65, out at 1.45, 1.55 Profit = $415
    2) Entry at .60, out at 1.75, 1.50 Profit = $485 PETER G.

    Hey Rick! Here is an update on what your picks have done in my accounts.

    1) Great call on the JoyG March 55. I bought when you said, then bought again on one of the dips. Booked 80+% profit. Made enough to pay for your service for years to come.

    2) Also booked profits on your Berk Feb 74 (80%) and threw a major chunk of change at the March 75’s (190+%). I would have never known that Buffet's stock had split if it weren’t for your service. Bought the shares also for the long haul. Won’t look at them for another 20 years. Great job on getting us in before the indexes did.

    3) Took profit on your Imax March 12.5. 20 cent trailing stop at 1.90 yesterday. Not sure what the profit on that was, but profit is profit.

    I see that you took a loss on some of these. It’s all good. I look to trade your “ideas” not your exact calls. I THANK YOU! For your ideas and commentary. Keep up the good work. And keep those ideas coming. LAWRENCE O.

    Loving this subscription so far! I got into the BRK feb 76 calls the day you talked about right before the split...now up over 300% (0.70 to 2.475)! Keep the good picks coming and let's see some OSIS and EMC upside soon! Just wanted to share my positive enthusiasm on your newsletter...it gives us individual investors great ideas on not only the options market, but also the broader equity market! Case in point is BRK...I can't always read the breaking business news but its easy to read your twice daily updates on my smartphone...helped me get some BRK shares immediately after the split which I will hold for the long haul! Thanks again! C.J.

    Aloha Rick - Thank you so much for the great CL pick. I am not sure if there was buy-out/merger news or what but at 3PM today Colgate-Palmolive absolutely EXPLODED to the upside, and my calls turned into green candy when they went from 1.40 to 3.8 in a matter of seconds! I even sold a few for over 4.0! Much thanks and keep the solid picks up my friend, honestly. Only a fool would scoff at 267% gains... Peace! SHAUN

    I like the fact that you ask for comments from subscribers. Good customer service. By the way, am enjoying the service so far. Some good profitable calls. Keep up the good work. MICHAEL K.

    Woo hoo! Out for 50% on WMT this am. Making up for my depression for getting out of pcln for a 30% gain monday :( you the man! any word on the manual? My friend Mike ( who I sent to your service) told me he emailed you about your integrity in reporting fills. I echo that sentiment big time.. keep it up! Cheers!

    Hi Rick, as a new member all I can say is, 'show off' LOL, with PCLN. JAY P.

    Rick, I am a new subscriber to your service, and I want to say I am impressed. I am impressed by your results, but more than that I am impressed by your reporting of your fills. You could have easily said you got that Wal-Mart call today for 80 cents, instead you reported 98 cents! Good job and keep it up, I watched the reporting of the fills first, and then I subscribed. Thank You. MIKE

    Hi, good morning. I jumped the gun a little on this one (PCLN). But still made $1,675.00 profit!! Very happy!! Keep up the good work!! Thanks. TRISH D.

    Hi there, I have joined recently, and I am very happy to tell you that I am up over $10,000 on your picks in a month. I started on 10/7 with the Intel pick. I'll be your member for life. Please don't quit on us. Also, I am learning a lot about options. I didn’t get in your recent APOL and that gold trade and only had one loss on CHK. I appreciate all the DD you do. I enjoy your market commentaries. Best advice site period, and I have tried a few here and there. Again, you guys rock! MIN L.

    Thanks be to Momentum Options Trading for providing me with some fantastic wins. I just started with this service and am up nearly 50% in less than a month. There have been losses, but if I manage them properly, I will continue the best efforts given on the blog (in which there are no complaints). What a great cause for humanity. I feel more confident about my trades and continue to play the wins. Best of all, I am now keeping my regular paychecks in the bank! Thank you! JOE G.

    Rick - I wanted to say thanks for getting me started on the right foot with your service. I have made six trades since starting on October 22, 2009. Five are winners and One loser netting me $6,245. Thanks again and keep the trade recommendations coming. GREG F.

    I got into the Nike 60 Call at 1.85, sold at 5.00, also bought a 55 put at 1.05, but got stopped out at .35. What a ride! $2830.00 in the black even with the put. It's right at 100% return. I hope earnings season coming up is going to look like this trade. NOEL

    Nice call on Nike. I think I'll go buy a pair with my profits! : ) I did the straddle for safety but still made 62% on the trade. Not bad for less than 24 hours. If Goldman is right, then the Nov 70s or 75's could be a steal today. TODD F.

    What a sweet way to get introduced to Momentum. My first trade based on your picks and it a 2X. Thank you! PAUL H.

    “Limit order was set at 1.60 on RIMM so it sold. I may have left some money on the table but you can't go broke making a profit. That was a fun trade. Thank you. Good call. I’ve been watching and trading Rick's advice since March. It’s usually a fun ride, but I give him heck when it's wrong to. :) ” NOEL

    “Your service rocks! I made bank on Dendreon last week! The other thing I have to say is that it took me quite a while to find a REAL options trading service like yours. Most of what’s out there is 99% scam and very sketchy. Momentum Options Trading is the first service I found that I can trust and seriously make money with.” CHRISTIAN

    “I made $420.00 on ANF in 2 days. Thanks for the trade and updates on getting out of the trade.” JOHN

    “I did follow a lot of your trades with 1-2 contracts per trade and YTD I’m up 108%. I try not to follow blindly by not entering all of your trades and sometimes entering the ones you don’t. I entered AIG a few weeks ago against recommendation – that one hurt.” CHARLES M.

    “I have been following you for several months and am interested in the new service. I hate to see the free service go away but as they say, “all good things must come to an end”. My ability to join will be greatly influenced by the monthly fee so I’m very curious to see the new prices. Thanks for making April a great month for me and my family.” BRYAN C.

    “I have really enjoyed the past month since finding your blog. You have made some great calls. I would appreciate info. on the new options mentoring program. Thanks.” JOHN H.

    “Hi Rick, I have been following your blog for several months now and I would like to be including on the list for your new service and to receive more information about it. And yes I was a Dendreon winner with your tips. Turned $280 into $7700, and literally saved my butt.” JEFFREY

    “I made over 6k on your Dendreon trade, and I’m very interested in learning how you pick and trade options. Sign me up.” ED

    “Rick – Wow what a day! I got in at the Dendreon calls at $2.25. Thanks to for your advice. I appreciate that. This company has a lock on this type of therapy and no one else in the world is close. Kind of reminds me of the type of companies that Peter Lynch and Warren Buffet suggest that investments be made in. Companies that can build a moat around their business model, that allows them to charge a premium for their product or service. In other words - a monopoly.” GREG

    “Hi Rick, Thank you so much for the Dendreon trade, I made almost $10,000 with that trade with a little over $2,000 investment. You have shown me the power of options trading. Again, thank you so much for all your inputs.” KEN

    “Hi Rick, thanks for the encouragement to play the dendreon calls! did freaking great! Got in the first lot at $1.44 on 3-24-09, sold at $2.45, 70% not bad. Bought it back at $2.30 on 4-7-09 closed out on 4-14-09 for 454% gain! Wow! I love it when that happens. So, thanks the encouragement to get back in when others were saying sell, sell, sell. Keep up the good work.” GARETT

    “Rick – Thanks for Dendreon – it has made all the headlines today! I missed on RIMM earlier, but I’ve been holding onto DNDN calls since 3rd week March. Of course today it all paid off today, as DNDN rocketed up.” TERENCE

    Rick, I purchased 10 contracts of the Nike March 85 puts Thursday afternoon for $2.00. Thing is, I was upset because the puts went down to $1.60 or so before the market closed. Well, needless to say Nike didn’t impress Wall Street and when I turned on the computer this morning the puts were worth $7.10! Sold them for a $5,100 profit!. Thanks again, you are the MAN.

    Hi Rick,

    I will start off with a thank you for your time and dedication to all
    the research you and your team commit yourself to. This is not me just being excited about the profits I have accumulated aka (bank) ! You have helped me get back to the passion I had of researching stocks/options. Keith N-

    Hi Rick,

    I want to share my great results on GMCR. Based on your comments on February 15th, I bought 20 options at $0.28. They closed today at $7.00, which is a 2,300% gain. My $560 dollars turned into $14,000 in less than a month. In decades of trading, this is my single best trade ever. Thank you! By the way, the Dow was down 228 points today and I could care less. What a great trade. It proves the amazing power of options. I am so grateful for your service, which calls it straight all the time, your options trading manual, and most of all, your amazing skill
    at finding winning trades. I have attached a copy of the trade from
    my brokerage screen.

    Hi Rick,

    Wow!! my account it up 70% since i joined last month and market is going the opposite direction. Really appreciate your service. I just wanted to drop a note to say THANK YOU. Hope to be with you guys for a very long time. Mel

    Rick,

    Great call on Fosl I bought the may 120 puts for 3.70 yesterday morning just sold for $32.00 today
    Keep up the great work
    Thank you, Henri

    Rick –

    I bought 10 Deckers Outdoor (DECK) May 55 puts at $0.50 on 4/26/12 and sold them on 4/27/12 for $1.65. I made $1150 in one day. Thanks. I knew something good would happen sooner or later.
    HOW THE HECK did you know Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR) was going to go down 20 points???!!!! I bought 10 of the May 35 puts at $0.49 and then 5 more at .30. I sold them at 5.80. Thank you again.
    You have made a believer out of me. Alan

    Rick –
    I have only been a member for about 6 weeks but I have done well on most of the trades. My first two were QQQ and SPY a month ago and since then I've gotten into the groove and been doing well.
    I try to execute the trades that you recommend as soon as you send them out, sometimes I can't and I miss the Entry price. However, sometimes when I miss the Entry, the price goes down and I get a better price.
    That's exactly what happened with GMCR.
    You recommended it at around $.81 I think, but by the time I got to it, the price was $.27. I bought 100 Puts on Wednesday May 2, 2012 and sold half of them 24 hours later at $5.95 for a nice 2,203% gain. As per your recommendation, as GMCR went above $30 I sold the remaining 50 Puts at $5.50 for a slightly less 2,037% gain.
    On average that one trade netted me a 2,120% gain, entirely based on YOUR recommendation (and a little bit of luck). To put this in real terms, I risked $2,700 on Wednesday and pocketed $54,550 just 24 hours later.
    So uhh, let's do that again real soon!!
    Feel free to use my name. The tax guys have me on speed-dial already anyway. Dennis

    Rick:
    That was awesome on your GMCR pick, I know how risky it can been holding into earnings but you pulled it off. 
    I just started my autotrading with you today and am in on your QQQ play. I look forward this service. 
    I have a busy career and I have tried to follow and trade throughout the day and found it too hard. I hope you continue to have a great year, I plan to go along for the ride. I am starting slow but will pile more in once I have secured some profits. 
    Keep up the good work your trading has been spot on. I am sure you paid your dues to get this point in your career. Anthony

    Rick:

    Great call on GMCR!  I have been trading for about 15 years actively.  This may be the best trade I ever made.  Got in on Monday, April 30 and the stock was up from when you recommended it.  It went up further after I got in.  Here are the facts:
    Monday, April 30th: Bought 15 June 37's at $1.25= $1900 approx
    Thursday, May 3rd: Sold 15 June 37's at $9.30=$13,950
    Gain for the week: $12,050.
    I understand you will not get them all right.  It’s important to ride those winners and as you could tell from my selling price, I sold when the stock went to $28.10, so left a little on the table.  Who can complain.
    Keep the suggestions coming, looking for another jump on your FSLR, one that I have been riding very hard.
    Best regards, Bob
