Lighthouse Point Options Alert and Updates on $AAPL

Here is a recent alerted stock idea from our LightHouse Point Options service:

On July 21st AAPL was testing it’s 50 day Simple Moving Average.  The idea was that AAPL should bounce back to it’s recent swing high and we could make a quick profit on the 148 calls.  We were able to purchase those calls on the 21st for $3.10.

The stock quick ran through the recent swing high so we decided to let it run to see what the 25th would bring.  On the 25th it continued to make news highs but showed a little weakness by not closing on the highs.  Since we had a nice profit, combined with the weakness and the ability t use the power of options…we decided to roll.  We rolled from the 148s to the 155 calls.  We sold the 148s for $5.25 locking in a profit of $2.15 or 69% return on investment (without commissions taken into consideration).

We bought the $155 calls on the roll for $0.50.  With a new high but closing on the middle of the trading session on the 26th, we decided to exit the recent purchase for a small loss.   Sold the 155 calls on the 26th for $0.35 for a $0.15 loss.  This made the total profit on the trade: $2.00.
