Holy Tweet! Twitter (TWTR) Trips $50/ New Trade!!!

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

1:00pm (EST) 

“Don’t you know that you are a shooting star, And all the world will love you just as long as long you are you.” – Bad Company

We normally wait until Friday’s to crank up some office tunes as a way to wind down the week and relieve the stresses of trading but we couldn’t resist playing a classic ahead of this morning’s open.

In case you haven’t been tweeted, or heard of today’s biggest IPO since Facebook (FB, $48.24, down $0.88), shares of Twitter (TWTR, $46, up $20) are now trading on the Big Board.

Shares priced at $26 last night and the chatter before the bell was Twitter would open between $30-$35.  That figure got bumped to $40-$44 just minutes before the bell and a little over an hour later shares opened at $45.10.  They have kissed a high of $50.

We were looking at a stock trade for our Weekly Wrap if Twitter would have opened below $30 but we certainly aren’t chasing at these levels.  Instead, we will wait for options to list and possibly look into trading calls or puts on the name down the road.

Twitter’s gains may be holding but the market has given up its opening pop as it seems neither the bulls or bears are willing to make big bets ahead of tomorrow’s Nonfarm Payrolls report.

Estimates are all over the map as some predictions are calling for Payroll gains of only 100,000-125,000 jobs added while some suit-and-ties are pushing figures between 180,000-200,000.

We would probably shut the front door if a number north of 175,000 comes out due to the government shutdown and a safe bet might be in the neighborhood of 150,000.

The event will likely hinder or help the bulls push to continued all-time highs as the market digests if the figure is good news or bad news.  If the jobs total comes in below 125,000 added, the taper talk will cool but it would also signal the economy is slowing instead of gradually increasing like many have been suggesting.

As we head to press, the Dow is down 31 points to 15,715 while the S&P 500 is lower by 7 points to 1,762.  The Nasdaq is getting spanked for 37 points and is below 3,900 to 3,894.  The Russell 2000 is off 7 points to 1,091.

We have a New Trade we are getting into so we have to roll.  Subscribers, check the Members Area for the details and we will be back in the morning with a full report.

Facebook (FB) Soars, Shorts Run for Cover/ Profit Alert (MGM)

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

1:15pm (EST)

Shares of Facebook (FB, $33.71, up $7.20) are surging 27% following a blowout quarter after the close on Wednesday.  We mentioned this morning shares had cleared $30 last night and the gains have held as we enter the second half of trading.

The company reported a profit of $0.19 a share on revenue of $1.8 billion.  Wall Street had penciled-in $0.14 a shares on revenue of $1.6 billion.

We had factored-in a 5% move for shares of Facebook to $28 on a good report, $25 on an earnings miss.  Following Google’s (GOOG, $891.51, down $11.39) terrible quarter from last week, there weren’t many traders long going into Facebook’s earnings and the ones that were short the stock are getting their faces ripped off.

The options pits were super active into yesterday’s close as over 11,000 contracts traded on the August 30 calls (FB130817C00030000, $3.63, up $3.39).  These options have zoomed 1,400% and reached a peak of $4.25 earlier in the session after closing at 24 cents yesterday.

The Facebook July 28 calls (weekly) (FB130726C00028000, $5.44, up $5.05) closed at 39 cents yesterday and traded over 13,000 contracts.  They are up a whopping 1,300%.  We looked at these options as a possible trade but they expire this Friday and it would have been an all-or-nothing deal.  However, a $390 bet on 10 contracts would have been worth $5,440 right now.

Facebook dispelled Wall Street worries about mobile ad growth and user retention rates with last night’s numbers and shareholders are being rewarded.  We missed a great trade but we are close to bagging an elephant.

As we head to press, the market is off its lows and is trading in the green.  The Dow is up 4 points to 15,547 while the S&P is higher by 2 points to 1,688.  The Nasdaq is higher by 21 points to 3,601.

We have another Profit Alert today and a New Trade so let’s get on it.  Subscribers, check the Members Area for the updates.

Last Chance Special Offer/ Amazon.com (AMZN) Beats Expectations, Market Mixed

Friday, April 26th, 2013

12:00pm (EST)

Amazon.com (AMZN, $254.55, down $20.15) shares are getting hammered today despite reporting a better-than-expected quarter after the close last night.  The company reported earnings of $0.18 a share on revenue of $16.1 billion.  The suit-and-ties were looking for $0.08 a share on revenue of $16.14 billion.  The slight miss in revenue and a lower growth have caused a stir on Wall Street but it was a great quarter for Amazon.

In their conference call, the company said “unit growth” came in at 30% but was 200 basis points  lower year-over-year.  However, gross margins hit an all-time which we feel is the bigger story.    Today’s 7% pullback could be a buying opportunity or an option trade as support at $250 is holding.  We will check the chart over the weekend to see if there will be a possible rebound or a continued move downtown.

There are a number of companies reporting next week that we are excited about:  Clorox (CLX, $86.78, down $0.28), Facebook (FB, $26.87, up $0.73), and MGM Resorts International (MGM, $13.48, down $0.05) will be confessing their numbers to the Street so there could be an option trade or two in play that we like.

We are also thrilled to be doing an update on our favorite small-cap stock that has surge from a recent low of $3 to over $7 a share.  We have been following the company for over a year and we have been pounding the table to our subscribers to buy 100, 500, or 1,000 shares or more to sock and stock away for the next year or two.

We have said we expect shares to trade to double-digits and our 6-12 month target has been $10.  However, once the fund managers and Wall Street pros find out about this diamond in the rough, shares could still easily double from current levels and push $14-$15.  Today, the stock is up another 32 cents that has triggered a 52-week high of $7.49.

We will also be talking about another stock that has fallen from $69 to $17 and could now be a takeover target.

We ran a special yesterday where you could get a 3-month membership to our Weekly Wrap for only $129, or $43 a month.  We have discounted the price by over 60% because we want you to make money and we want you to get in on this growth stock that is ready to become a household name.  The company plans to open its first 75 stores over the next year.

Here is the deal in case you missed it:

Bulls Holding Support/ NEW TRADE Alert!

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

12:10pm (EST)

We said this morning the bulls needed to get off to a good start or at least hold current levels as the action today has once again been choppy.  The Dow and S&P 500 have had a little success this morning but Tech has been weak which has weighed on the Nasdaq.  The small-caps have traded on both sides of the ledger.

Economic news is light today but there will be a bevy of headlines on employment the rest of the week.  Fourth-quarter earnings are winding down but there are still be a few noteworthy names reporting to finish out the month.    

Toll Brothers (TOLL, $32.58, up $0.15) got a nice pop at the open but shares are fading despite the company easily beating Wall Street’s estimates.  Toll reported earnings of $411 million, or $2.35 a share, on revenue of $633 million.  The suit-and-ties were looking for $0.23 a share on sales of $565 million.  The huge beat was due to a $350 million income tax benefit.  Excluding the tax break, earnings were 35 cents a share and a solid 12 cents a share beat. 

Toll Brothers is the top builder in the high-end luxury home business and the quarter was outstanding to say the least.  We like the stock but it’s a little pricey and we would wait for a pullback if you are thinking of jumping back into the Housing sector.

Elsewhere, Facebook (FB, $27.26, up $0.22) traded up to $27.47 earlier in the session after announcing a Gift program that could be a huge hit.  Shares briefly dipped below $20 in mid-November and continue to show incredible momentum after hitting a high of $28.88 yesterday.  There is a chance shares trade to $32 over the near-term.

As we head into the second half of trading, the Dow is up 4 points to 12,970 while the S&P 500 is lower by 3 points to 1,406.  The Nasdaq is down 15 ticks to 2,897 but is holding 2,975.  The Russell 2000 is off by 2 points to 818 while the S&P 500 Volatility Index is up slightly to 16.92 but has stayed below 17.50 so far this week. 

We mentioned Sunday night in our Weekly Wrap and Monday morning in our Daily that the current market conditions are very technically driven right now so make sure you check the charts in the Members Area to get a clear picture of what we are seeing.

We have also updated our current trades and we have a NEW TRADE we are releasing so let’s get on it.  Subscribers, check the MA for the updates and be sure to use limit orders to get the best fills.

Facebook (FB) Shares Flood Wall Street/ NEW TRADE ALERT

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

12:30pm(EST)

Shares of Facebook (FB, $21.65, up $1.79) were hard to get before its Initial Public Offering (IPO) but have been easy as pie to buy since.  The whip cream came today when another 800 million became available for trading. 

Shares are down 50+% from its IPO peak of $45 on its first day of trading back in mid-May and have traded to a low of $17.55 since.  The “lockup” period for Facebook’s faithful insiders will allow them to sell shares to cash in on what could be a disappearing pie if future earnings don’t come through.

Usually, when a company’s share float doubles and earnings are shaky, the stock price will decline.  Facebook’s outstanding shares are a little over 900 million and this will be the third lockup expiration in 3 months.  Each time shares have tended to pullback over the following 2 weeks after a brief pop higher.

In August, 240 million shares were released to the hounds that lead to the $17.55 low print in early September.  In October, the second lockup occurred just before Facebook’s earnings announcement that pushed shares back below $20 after they had rebounded to push $23 by late September.

Shares then remained in a tight range at around $20 until earnings and they wowed Wall Street last month with a beat.  Shares jumped from $19.50 to $23.23 after Facebook showed some growth (and profits). 

The talking heads and slick talking pros are jumping ship and telling people not to buy the stock but often times the exact opposite happens.  While we do believe shares will test the mid-teens at some point, the bounce to $22 didn’t surprise us as share make a back test, first. 

As far as the market, the opening rally has faded as prior support will now try to serve as resistance. 

The Dow is down 74 points to 12,681 while the S&P is declining 7 points to 1,367.  The Nasdaq is lower by 8 points to 2,875.  We have talked about the 2,875 level on the Nasdaq so watch the close for confirmation down to 2,850. 

We have a NEW TRADE we are getting into as the options we have been profiling have hit our limit target to buy them.  Subscribers, check the Members Area for the current updates and use limit orders to get the best fills on our latest recommendation.

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!
    PARAG P.

    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. Chuck J-

    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
