Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Bear Call Spread trade opportunity for LOGMEIN (LOGM) for the 15-Mar-2019 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

LOGM was recently trading at $83.13 and has an implied volatility of 34.85% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for LOGM expiring on 15-Mar-2019, there is a 34.14% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $75.11-$82.97 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 45.53%.

Big -13.35% Change: After closing the last trading session at $95.94, LOGMEIN opened today at $80.20 and has reached a low of $80.20.

Trade approach: A movement as big as -13.35% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if LOGM maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $83.13 on 15-Mar-2019. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.

Upside potential: Using this bearish strategy, the trade would be profitable if LOGMEIN closes at or below $83.55 on 15-Mar-2019. Based on our risk-neutral analysis, there is a 52.80% likelihood of this return.

Downside risk: As with any options trade, there is a substantial downside risk where you may lose most or all of your investment.

Synthetic Long Discount Alert: NEW AGE BEVERAGES CORPORATION COMMON $NBEV trading at a 12.28% discount for the 17-Jan-2020 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for NEW AGE BEVERAGES CORPORATION COMMON (NBEV) for the 17-Jan-2020 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

NBEV was recently trading at $6.55 and has an implied volatility of 72.97% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for NBEV expiring on 17-Jan-2020, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $2.61-$17.28 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 62.11%.

Upside potential: This synthetic long position offers the same potential benefits and liabilities as a long stock position, but at a discount due to the significant premium at-the-money puts are trading at over calls. In this case, the put position is opened at a strike of $7.00, which is already $0.45 in-the-money. However, its sale more than offsets this moneyness and the cost of the long call that the trade results in a net credit of of $1.25 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $0.80 per share over the underlying price of $6.55 for a 12.24% total.

Downside risk: This discount is generally a sign of the stock facing considerable short pressure, and may indicate that the stock has become hard to borrow. However, if you have a long view of the underlying over this period, it could be a good opportunity to benefit from the upside at a major discount.
