Diamond Foods Spiking 6% After Big Sell Off Yesterday!! Call Options?! By: Tim Bolger

Just a quick note on Diamond Foods(DMND). I posted an article yesterday: http://optionshoney.com/2012/02/09/big-shake-up-at-diamond-foods-this-is-totally-nutz-ceo-and-cfo-are-out-options-honey/recommending that investors buy shares of the San Francisco snack food maker on a huge 42% decline in the shares. DMND is up close to 6% today, on a day in the red across all the major U.S. stock indexes.  Additionally, I suggested buying the Call Options on DMND to take advantage of yesterday’s tremendous share weakness.  I bought the Feb 17, 2012 $23 strike Call Options for $1.45 yesterday and hope that a few other traders jumped on that train. Well, I know alot of Wall St. Pros are all over this big trade and yesterday was a record volume day for Options traded on DMND foods, but I hope a few Optionshoney lovers are making money on this trade as well. Forbes reports: Plunge In Diamond Foods Yields Feast Of Options Trades at Forbes(Fri 10:07AM EST). Consider locking in profits today as these DMND Options contracts are trading 61% higher over night:http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=DMND120218C00023000. Always remember that pigs get slaughtered…no need to be greedy and it’s a very smart move to take 60% of our profits off the table on this rally in DMND shares and the Call Options…But, this stock may run to 28 by the Feb 17th expiration next week and we could still see huge upside in the value of these Call Options contracts. Options are risky financial instruments and please consult your investment advisor before buying any Options contracts or stocks that I research/trade on this site.  Stay tuned for more action at Optionshoney.com.

Bull Market Turns Green in Late Trade!! Visa Call Options Active Ahead of Earnings! By: Tim Bolger

After being in the red most of the day, all of the major U.S. stock indexes turn Green in late trade…The Bulls are in control of this market and stocks continue to grind higher.  Apple(AAPL) is hitting another record high stock price, with an intraday high of $475.15.  Yup, Aapl is approaching a market capitalization of 1/2 trillion U.S. Dollars…and that Tech giant is amazing!! Stock runs to $550 in 2012 in my opinion.  Sorry Exxon Mobile…

About Visa

Visa(V) reports after the bell and I am long the V $110 and $115 strike Feb 17, 2012 Call Options into earnings. Attached is the Feb 17, 2012 V Options Chains courtesy of Yahoo Finance: http://finance.yahoo.com/q/op?s=V+Options.  Check out the volume on the Feb 17, 2012 $110 and $115 strike V Call Options and prices jumping ahead of earnings today after the bell!! I took some profits off the table earlier today on a few of my Visa options contracts and I am hoping for a big earnings beat!! Visa is rallying this afternoon around 1% and the stock is approaching a record high price. I think V could run to $150 a share in 2012 and I am hopeful for an upbeat full year 2012 earnings and revenue guidance that beats the street expectations after the bell!! Keep an eye on BAC, GS, JPM, GNW, and C. All of these financial stocks are set to fly in 2012 and still have huge upside potential…Stay tuned for more of the Options and Market buzz at Optionshoney.com.

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings(AAWW) is Hot!! Stock is Set to Roar Higher!! Call Options Ready to Fly!!! By: Tim Bolger

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (AAWW) is up again today on  a down tape across major U.S. stock indexes.   I am hoping that this is my best Options trade of the year.  It is also one of my top stock picks for 2012…Be ready for a continued break out in AAWW…I am personally riding the Mar 16, 2012 $50 and $52.50 strike Call Options on AAWW. Attached is the Options Chains for the Mar 16, 2012 Call/Put Options on AAWW courtesy of Yahoo Financehttp://finance.yahoo.com/q/op?s=AAWW&m=2012-03. If this company blows out earnings this month and the stock trades to $60, all of my $75-$125 Call Option contracts that I purchased on the March $52.50 strike will be worth over $800 a piece…I really hope it jumps to $65 plus and that would be amazing!! And that would definitely make Optionshoney Co-founder Mr. Bolger a very Happy Honey Bee!!!!!!!!! 🙂 I have alot of my personal chips on this trade and ready to get paid…Feel the Buzz baby! Stay tuned for more trades at http://www.Optionshoney.com. Remember that Options are very risky financial instruments and please consult your financial advisor before buying any stock or options…Good luck AAWW Bulls!
