By far my biggest winning trade to date! I was so excited post BID's surprise earnings announcement I couldn't risk holding onto the trade until expiration. Given the huge upswing, I wouldn't be surprised if the stock sees some profit taking over the next week or so.

My $150 investment made $1,950 in profit, which is a 1,300 percent return in 29 days. Hard to believe. My P&L for the year is now up.

Here is the trade result plotted on a chart:
