AMZN Call Buyers Say “Show Me The Money”


AMZN blew away all earnings estimates.  The stock soared on Friday and brought all AMZN calls up with it.  When a stock like AMZN, GOOG, AAPL goes up 15% the options go up 700, 1,000% or more.

On Friday traders buying any of the calls expiring that day were able to sell for large profits.

The $220 calls from $.39 to $7.79 or $390 into $7,790.  The $225 calls from $.20 to $1.88.  Some impressive option moves.  It gets better.  Had you positioned yourself earlier in the week for AMZN earnings you had the chance to get in at even cheaper prices.

The $220 calls were selling for $.18 on Tuesday so make that $180 into $7,779 for anyone good enough to be in earlier in the week.  The $210 calls were $.65 on Tuesday and closed at $17.10 on Friday.  The $225 calls were at $.10 on Tuesday and went over $3.00 no Friday.  That's $100 into $3,000.  I don't think I need to do the math on the rest of them.  Almost any AMZN call this past week held to Friday was a "show me the money" type option trade.

This is why we trade options and a big high five to all of you who took AMZN calls to the bank on Friday.
