Options Profits Previews

Tesoro sees bearish flow, while Facebook and Twitter calls are active.
Somebody thinks 13 is a lucky number for Louisiana Pacific.
One player in the options market last week committed significant capital in a trade takes advantage of current volatility levels and may indicate a view that action will may get more interesting in the weeks ahead.
Incessant warnings of complacency, especially when unattached to a specific, confirmable risk scenario, introduce their own sort of risk: the risk of losing money from paying the ongoing costs of ill-timed bearish postures.
As TWTR is perceived less like a fetishized social media growth story and more like the public utility for the 21st century that it has become for so many users, expectations around future earnings will change as well.

Despite the negative headlines and weakness in shares, the order flow in GM seemed decidedly bullish throughout much of last week and the increased options activity comes ahead of several potential catalysts.
In a story on Wednesday for The Deal, Bill McConnell walks through some of the key concerns that have been raised. There are two issues investors in the stock should consider.
After a brief (one day!) dip on concerns about events in the Ukraine, US markets quickly resumed their bull run, with just a few names setting new 52-week highs during yesterday's trading.
The options market is not yet convinced on the severity of the conflict in Ukraine.
I think the stock has found a floor and want to buy slightly out-of-the-money calls.
There has been very light index and ETF volume this week, while single stock option volume is holding strong, trading slightly above normal. I believe this is a healthy sign for the industry, as it suggests less macro concern and more 'old fashioned' research into the fundamentals that contribute to share value.
Sometimes, taking some time out to read is a good way to avoid buying stuff at too high a price.
Two recent papers reveal that, in recent years, much of the borrowing in emerging markets hasn't been counted in standard current account surplus/deficit figures.
An investor who owns long-dated call options asked what would happen to his position, since the company break-up is scheduled to occur by the end of 2014 or in early 2015, before his calls expire.
Since 'greed' is now in the driver's seat (maybe fear stepped out to put chains on the tires), we are seeing several names with aggressive bullish option flow in the form of upside call buying coincident with increasing open interest and lifting IV.
