Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Bull Call Spread trade opportunity for BURLINGTON STORES INC (BURL) for the 24-May-2019 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

BURL was recently trading at $174.20 and has an implied volatility of 25.97% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for BURL expiring on 24-May-2019, there is a 34.14% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $174.56-$190.16 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 37.43%.

Big 7.56% Change: After closing the last trading session at $161.95, BURLINGTON STORES INC opened today at $168.50 and has reached a high of $174.62.

Trade approach: A movement as big as 7.56% is a significantly bullish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if BURL maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bearish side of $174.20 on 24-May-2019. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.

Upside potential: Using this bullish strategy, the trade would be profitable if BURLINGTON STORES INC closes at or above $174.40 on 24-May-2019. Based on our risk-neutral analysis, there is a 50.43% 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: GAMESTOP $GME trading at a 10.94% discount for the 15-Jan-2021 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for GAMESTOP (GME) for the 15-Jan-2021 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

GME was recently trading at $8.92 and has an implied volatility of 29.18% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for GME expiring on 15-Jan-2021, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $4.54-$19.29 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 69.00%.

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 long call position is opened at a strike of $8.00, which is already $0.92 in the money. An out-of-the-money put at the same strike is sold to finance the call, resulting in a net credit of $0.06 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $0.98 per share over the underlying price of $8.92 for a 10.94% 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.
