Trading Quest Resource Holding Corp. QRHC Options In The Short-Term
From a short-term perspective, QRHC options look appealing.
I am looking at the 9/17 expiration contracts, which I think will gain in Open Interest after tomorrow’s expiration.
The $5 & $7.50 calls look appealing, with the $5’s being in-the-money & the $7.50’s being the next level above them.
From the puts perspective, there is very little open interest still, but once there is I will be eyeing the $7.50 strike price.
Tying It All Together
All-in-all QRHC stock looks to offer both long-term investors & short-term traders profit opportunities.
Their positive momentum in the near-term looks set to continue pushing their share price upwards.
In the long-run they have some appealing metrics from a valuation perspective, and may get additional price benefit from being a micro-cap.
This is because many stocks of that size go under the radar or are too small for some traders to invest in, so as they climb higher more people learn of them & pile in, forcing the price higher.
Overall, it seems that QRHC is worth taking a closer look at for both short & long-term traders.
