How would you like to collect a month’s worth of profits in just ONE trading day?
Let me show you how.
Exact Sciences (NASDAQ: EXAS) is a molecular diagnostics company that manufactures the only FDA-approved non-invasive screening test for colorectal cancer that can be done at home.
In late-April, the company announced stronger-than-expected first-quarter results. They beat analysts’ consensus estimates for revenue and reporting a smaller-than-expected per-share loss.
Shares went on to make record high after record high before pulling back with the broader market and giving us a prime to enter this trade.
With that frenzied reaction behind the company, it was a great time to sell put options on EXAS.
A Month’s Worth of Profit in ONE Day
Now everyone knows I like to sell weekly options to collect cash every Friday…but, hey, sometimes there is more premium to be had in the monthly options. And that’s what happened with EXAS.
In early May with Exact Sciences stock trading at $93.97, we sold the EXAS May 24th 90 put option for around $140 per contract or $420 for 3 contracts.
We expected to hold the position to closing on May 24th and capture the entire $420 of a premium on expiration.
The next day, Exact Sciences stock price popped to $97.91, the price of our option dropped to $0.45 or $45 per contract. We closed the trade immediately buying back our sold put for $0.45 and collected $0.95 or $95 per contract.
Our 3 contracts sold netted us $285 for a monthly option position in only ONE trading day.
In closing the trade early, we locked in profit…avoided any late swoon in the stock price … and collected a month’s worth of profits in just ONE day.
