Whole Foods Market, Inc. WFM – Options Update
We just wanted to circle back for our WFM options idea that we submitted last week. We designated contracts with a 02/17 expiration instead of weeklies to give our idea time to develop and it ended up being a good call. Our targets were the WFM 02/17 $30 and 30.50 Calls.
Yesterday WFM had a morning pullback which was followed by a nice reversal, and the stock ended up bulling its way into the close near its high of day. The calls we signaled last week had a significant move as a result. The $30 Calls ran from .14-.52 (+271%), while the $30.50's exploded from .05-.21 (+320%). We are going to want to keep them on our radar for the rest of the week into expiration.
Key resistance is at the 200DMA and 50DMA of 30.38 and 30.76, respectively. If WFM can crack the latter, we may look to roll our strike price up and push out another week to contracts expiring next Friday- particularly, the WFM 02/24 $31 Calls.
Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT
We've now witnessed quite a run from GALT over the past few weeks, validating our previous reports on the stock wherein we contested that a serious run-up appeared likely.
It began with our report on 01/12, in which we noted GALT's ripening chart, and surmised that forthcoming gains of 100% were not out of the question. We observed a low of .935 subsequent to that followed by a nice 38% push to 1.29 leading into our most recent report on GALT last Friday.
In that report we had this to say "We feel these gains are sustainable if GALT can manage to crack past the current 200DMA at 1.32. As you can see on the included snapshot, the chart continues to bear the look of potential for even further increases".
Yesterday GALT met those expectations nicely with a run to a new high of 1.85, which marks an overall increase from our observed low of 98%, falling just a hair shy of our initial speculations. Yet, our prediction seems to be coming full circle this morning as the stock is gearing up to fill its gap on the chart that we pointed out in our initial report. One more bullish push will get us into double-bagger territory for this idea, and the stock may well make a run well into the 2.00-range.
Green EnviroTech Holdings Corp. GETH – Recap
We were quite pleased with the performance of GETH following our featured report yesterday morning, as the stock provided traders with a pair of solid intraday swings amid an onslaught of volume.
Right from the opening bell, GETH shot up from .165 to the high of day at .235, marking an initial rip of 42% The stock subsequently pulled back to a daily low at .1514, before surging up once more to .215, matching the morning's 42% gain exactly.
All of this useful volatility was accompanied by massive volume on the order of 39X the monthly average, or 19X the 3-month average. It represented an all-time record high for shares of GETH traded in a single session!
Yesterday we had identified .15 as the key support level that needed to hold in order to make GETH interesting, and our sentiments in that regard haven't changed.
