Taking Profits on TASR
Mike added TASR as a trade set-up on Mon May 9, after the company reported positive earnings and revenues the previous Thursday and then received positive news about large orders from the Chicago Police Department.
Mike noted, "My sense is that given the state of 'social and political relations' in the country, especially heading into the heart of the presidential political season, that TASR just might be the beneficiary of a municipality call to arms to 'protect the public good.'"
The stock was 18.55 at the time, and Mike exited three days later, this past Thursday May 12, on a stop at 19.63 for a gain of 5.8%.
A few hours later, Mike reallocated 50% of the gains to entering the TASR May 27th, 20.00 Strike Call Options to participate in an anticipated upmove to 21-22.
More Top Calls From Mike
This past Tuesday, September 26, two days prior to NKE (Nike) earnings, Mike Paulenoff posted one of his pre-earnings "Heads Up" to our members, writing:"Certainly, NKE is oversold enough within a relentless downtrend pattern off of its Feb. 2023 recovery high at 131.31, that a positive reaction to quarterly results reflecting anything other than a disaster coupled with dismal guidance, is likely to trigger an initial positive reaction into the 95 to 100 recovery resistance zone.

Back on June 26th, when nearby WTI Oil futures were circling $67/bbl, Mike Paulenoff issued a heads-up to MPTrader members about a potentially opportunistic technical setup developing in OXY (Occidental Petroleum), writing:"OXY pressed to a low at 55.58 this AM, which marginally violated the 5/11 low at 56.16, BUT held above the more technically significant March 2023 low at 55.51 prior to pivoting to the upside into positive territory, now trading at 57.47.
On Monday August 28, we posted a heads-up about FCX (Freeport-McMoRan) to our MPTrader members, writing: FCX (Copper, Gold, Oil) producer has the right technical look (and a positive momentum divergence at Friday's low) of a completed pullback (44.70 to 37.74) within its larger bullish multi-month Coil formation. Last Friday's (8/25/23) low at 37.74 represented a very healthy 15.6% correction off of the 7/31/23 rally peak at 44.70 and also amounted to an exact Fibonacci 62% retracement of the 5/24/23 to 7/31/23 advance from 33.06 to 44.70.
