Elanco Animal Health Inc. ELAN Stock Technical Performance For The Last Year

ELAN Stock Price: $29.95

10 Day Moving-Average: $29.35

50 Day Moving-Average: $30.76

200 Day Moving-Average: $25.33

RSI: 50

With an RSI that is even at 50, and the bullish MACD crossover, it looks like ELAN has some room to run.

The $30 calls are at-the-money as of the premarket, with a delta of 0.49, and their $29 calls offer a higher delta at 0.83, with less theta risk at only -0.07 (vs. -0.11 for the $30’s).

From a puts perspective, the $32 & $33 options seem to make the most sense if you’re viewing the December 18th expiration (tomorrow), as they are already in the money.

Looking into January expirations though, there may be some value to the $31 puts while ELAN stock tries to continue climbing, while establishing a trading range.

I would be focused on their filled green candlestick price levels (black in the chart above), as it looks like they’re finding resistance at $1.50, but with how often they’ve knocked on the door at that level, there looks to be some form of opportunity.

Overall, First Acceptance Corporation stock looks to have some room for opportunity for a short-to-medium-term trade.

Green Brick Partners, Inc. GRBK Stock Analysis

Green Brick Partners, Inc. stock trades under the ticker GRBK & closed at $22.01/share on 12/9/2020.

GRBK stock has had a strong year, as homebuilders have fared very well since COVID, & their stock & options look appealing to long-term & short-term traders alike.

Green Brick Partners, Inc. GRBK Stock Technical Performance For The Last Year

GRBK Stock Price: $22.01

10 Day Moving-Average: $22.76

50 Day Moving-Average: $19.96

200 Day Moving-Average: $13.63

RSI: 52

For longer-term investors who are interested in the common shares, there may be some opportunity to get a good buy-in price on the horizon, as the shares have dropped a bit since Thanksgiving.

There looks to still be room to drop though when you examine the relationship between their moving averages, but from a longer-term perspective, if you’re looking to take advantage of the homebuilders boom, they present a solid opportunity.

In the short-term, the $20 GRBK calls look appealing, with a delta of 0.89, as I am not sure that the $22.50 calls will be worth the gamble when I see the MACD trend (bottom of the chart above).

I’m looking at the $22.50 puts (delta of -0.59) that are slightly in-the-money, as the next level down strike price is $20, which would require a >10% price correction to go into the money (delta of -0.15).

Overall, GRBK looks to have something to offer traders of all kinds, making it worth taking a closer look at.

ARK Next Generation Internet ETF ARKW Notes

ARK Next Generation Internet ETF trades under the ticker ARKW, and closed at $143.66/share on 12/8/2020.

ARKW is an ETF that focuses on companies that are moving away from hardware & software, to focus more on running their platforms through the cloud & mobile, which is a fast growing industry.

ARK Next Generation Internet ETF ARKW Technical Performance For The Last Year

ARKW ETF Price: $143.66

10 Day Moving-Average: $136.35

50 Day Moving-Average: $121.06

200 Day Moving-Average: $90.57

RSI: 78

ARKW’s RSI is pushing the range of overbought (80), and their MACD lines are beginning to come closer together, with the 10 Day Moving-Average being 5% below their price per share.

This signals that a quick profit may be made by owning the common shares, but traders need to be mindful of how fast that gap closes, in addition to the 50 Day Moving-Average, which is currently 16% less than the share price & 11% below the 10 Day Moving-Average.

As those numbers close, the trend is going to likely reverse, unless the overall market conditions manage to propel it higher.

ARKW ETF has options, with the $145 calls being at-the-money (delta is 0.45), and the $140 calls being slightly in-the-money (delta 0.69) if you’re looking for some padding from any potential shakeups in the near-term to prevent decay.

ARKW puts look appealing from the $150 (delta -0.56) or $145 standpoint (delta -0.8), which can serve as a good hedge for any shifts in market sentiment.

Triumph Group, Inc. TGI Stock Analysis

Triumph Group, Inc. stock trades under the ticker TGI & closed at $15.39/share on 12/8/2020.

TGI stock’s 50 Day Moving-Average recently crossed the 200 Day Moving-Average, showing technical strength that began with a major gap up on 11/9/2020.

Triumph Group, Inc. TGI Stock Technical Performance For The Last Year

TGI Stock Price: $15.39

10 Day Moving-Average: $14.34

50 Day Moving-Average: $9.28

200 Day Moving-Average: $8.34

RSI: 74

TGI’s RSI is a bit high, and their MACD trend looks like it may be overlapping/running out of steam, so traders who are only interested in the common shares may want to be looking to unload their shares quickly after getting a profit.

A well timed entry will be key in this scenario, as their 10 Day Moving-Average is 6% away from their price/share & will continue creeping higher.

From an options perspective, I would be purchasing calls that are already in-the-money to account for the pullback that may occur – the $15 calls have a delta of 0.59, and the $12.50 calls have a delta of 0.87.

From the puts perspective, I’m looking at the almost at-they-money $15 puts, with a delta of -0.41, and or the in-the-money puts at $17.50, whose delta is -0.77.

Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. CLF Stock Analysis

Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. stock trades under the ticker CLF & closed at $12.59/share on 12/7/2020.

CLF stock has been on a solid growth trajectory since mid-November 2020, and shows signs of profit opportunities for short & medium-term traders alike.

Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. CLF Stock Technical Performance For The Last Year

CLF Stock Price: $12.59

10 Day Moving-Average: $11.57

50 Day Moving-Average: $8.68

200 Day Moving-Average: $6.11

RSI: 77

With an RSI of 77, CLF is likely going to ease in price in the near-term, offering an opportunity for common-share investors to buy into a more advantageous price as it establishes its new range.

Their MACD trend suggests this as well, so I would be watching these numbers & lines while trying to decide an entry, if I were looking to go long the common shares.

In terms of options, I may look at the $12 calls that are already in the money with a delta that is greater than .74, and or the at-the-money $12.50 calls.

From a puts perspective, the $13 puts has a delta of -0.6956, suggesting that during the correcting of price range, a small amount of movement will move the price of your option in a large way, and as they’re quoted at $0.55 vs. $1.47 for the $14 puts (delta -0.88), you’ll be able to make a little more bang for your buck on that price range establishment.

Overall, CLF stock looks to still have legs under it to continue growing, and their options also look appealing.

I’ll be eyeing their options for a possible trade today & tomorrow.

Aqua Bounty Technologies, Inc. AQB Stock Anaylsis

Aqua Bounty Technologies, Inc. stock trades under the ticker AQB & has broken out by over 100% since the end of October 2020.

AQB stock closed at $9.62/share on 12/7/2020 & looks to have more room to run as it establishes a new price range to trade in.

This means that there is an opportunity to short & medium-term traders to take advantage of profit opportunities from AQB stock & options.

Aqua Bounty Technologies, Inc. AQB Stock Technical Performance For The Last Year

AQB Stock Price: $9.62

10 Day Moving-Average: $5.75

50 Day Moving-Average: $4.49

200 Day Moving-Average: $3.16

RSI: 90

AQB stock’s RSI is overbought at 90, signaling that there will be some evening out in pricing as it establishes a new range after a very strong December performance that began with a high volume gap up on 11/30/2020.

If trading the common shares, I would wait for a little pullback before diving in, as with the overly inflated RSI there is room for the price to even itself out a bit before continuing to climb upwards.

From an options perspective, the $10 calls are just about at-the-money, while the closest strike price for in-the-money calls is $7.50; if you’re worried about AQB’s price being impacted by broader market conditions in the near-term, I would choose the $7.50 strike price.

From a puts perspective, given that the strike price options are $10 or $12.50 for at or in-the-money, the $10 is likely the best option based on prices, as in the pre-market on 12/8/2020 the $10 strike puts are $1.98, while the $12.50 are $3.95, making there more room to lose money on the $12.50’s.

All-in-all, AQB stock & options offer a lot of potential profit & growth opportunities for traders, and I will be watching their options today & tomorrow for an entry.

RSI: 70

While Terex’s RSI is a bit high at 70, there still looks to be room to climb for their shares.

I am looking at the $34 calls, as well as the $34 puts for a hedge, as they begin to establish a new range after their recent gap up.

Overall, TEX stock still seems to have room to run, giving traders of all different time frames an opportunity for profit.
