- Breaking News: Market Takeover In Effect (Claim your share!)
Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Citigroup, and all the big funds are getting pummeled by the all new Robinhood Effect sending some stocks to the moon...
Whenever a stock falls below fair value… the Robinhood Effect happens… and it happens FAST… and it could pay the likes of $1.83 million to regular investors.
Currently, shares of Omega trade around $42.50, the company needs to move at least 10.5 percent higher for the option to trade in-the-money at expiration.
Omega is a health care real estate investment trust (REIT) that invests in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. It’s a good, somewhat off-the-radar space with some value now. While REITS aren’t particularly volatile, shares of Omega are capable of moving in-the-money for this option given how much time there is left on the trade.
Action to take: There’s a lot for shareholders to like in the healthcare REIT space. Omega shares have slightly trailed the overall market in the past year, but with fat 38 percent profit margins and a 6.2 percent dividend yield, investors are well-paid no matter how share do. Shares are a buy up to $45.00.
Speculators should get in on the January 2021 $47 call option. At a price of around $1.60, it allows option traders to control 100 shares for just $160 per contract—not a bad bargain over the next year while the trade plays out. In a move to $50, the options could double to $3.00.
