No time to waste, Demski!
As we go into the weekend, we have some big profits on hand, and we strongly recommend you pocket them.
First up was an XBI/XLU pairing that we wrote on December 23rd. The letter was called Antiochus Pocus and it urged you to sell the XBI March 20th 105 CALL for $1.37 and buy the XBI March 20th 115 CALL for $0.27. With those funds we suggested the purchase of the XLU March 20th 66 CALL for $1.16. Total debit on the trade was $0.06.
And today, we hit the jackpot.
Buy back the short 105 CALL for $0.44 and sell the long 66 for $2.76, and you walk away with $2.26 net on six cents spent.
That’s a phenomenal 3767% IN JUST A SINGLE MONTH!
Annualized, gives you a ridiculous 45,200%!
Second closure was from a letter called The Financial HORROR! that arrived in your inbox on January 13th. There, we recommended selling the MS April 17th 49 PUT for $1.21 and buying the MS April 17th 45 PUT for $0.52. With those funds, we recommended you buy the MS April 17th 52.50 CALL for $2.32 and sell the MS April 17th 57.50 CALL for $0.50. Total debit on the affair was $1.13.
The PUT spread is down $0.43 – buy it back. The CALL spread is up a dandy $2.64 – sell it!*
And with that you pull in $1.08 on $1.13 spent.
That’s a 95% return in 11 days.
Where else can you make money like that!?
[*Individual option prices are as follows – 49/45 PUTs are $0.59/$0.16 and 52.50/57.50 CALLs are $3.95/$1.31.]
We’re closing an effort we launched this past Monday morning!
The letter was called It Takes a Village… Idiot, and there we recommended you sell the AAPL September 18th 400 CALL for $4.60, and buy the TLT January 15th (2021) 142 CALL for $4.65. Total debit was a nickel.
And whaddaya know – today the AAPL CALL trades for $4.60 and the TLT goes for $5.60. Buy back the former, sell off the latter, and you net $0.95 on five cents expended. That’s a full-on death-to-your-enemies 1900% in four trading sessions!
