How Money Morning Readers Just Made a 100% Gain on MSFT

Back on March 29, I told Money Morning readers about a "backdoor marijuana investment" strategy in the $10 billion marijuana industry through Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT).

The potential profit opportunity was from the May 4 MSFT option call.

And if you followed along, congratulations.

You've made a 107% profit in less than a month, with our $0.96 option call now trading at $1.99.

Microsoft isn't a typical pot stock, but it's becoming a major player in the industry. It formed a partnership with cannabis compliance firm KIND Financial in 2016, where KIND would use Microsoft's cloud to run its software.

On top of its partnerships in the $10 billion legal cannabis industry, Microsoft is just one of the best tech stocks to own right now.

The tech giant expects to generate $20 billion this year just in commercial cloud revenue.

You can find all the details here about how I uncovered this Microsoft call as a profit opportunity, but I wanted to give a quick recap in case you missed it.

Here's how I uncovered this profit play on MSFT stock - and how you can find even more ways to turn options into profits...

How We Uncovered This 100% Winner in the Cannabis Industry

Previous performance is never indicative of future gains, but I found a pattern heading into Microsoft's Q3 2018 earnings on April 26.

Microsoft reported Q1 2018 earnings on Oct. 26, 2017. From Oct. 2, 2017, to Oct. 26, 2017, we saw a run-up of the stock price. The exact same thing also happened before Q2 2018 earnings were reported on Jan. 31.

Beginning of the Month Price Opening Price on Earnings Date Profit
$74.71 (Oct. 2, 2017) $79.20 (Oct. 26, 2017) 6%
$86.13 (Jan. 2, 2018) $93.75 (Jan. 31, 2018) 8.84%

And we struck lightning a third time...

On April 2, the MSFT stock price opened at $90.47 per share.

With today's opening price of $95, that's a 5% gain.

Now, there's always the chance the stock price could fall before earnings and your options profit starts shrinking.

Microsoft is a great stock, but it's not immune to a market selloff caused by potential trade tariffs and wars.

That's why the best strategy is to take your 100% profits right now if you're a risk-averse investor.

If you can stand the idea of potentially watching that 100% profit fall, you could risk it for even bigger gains after earnings.

But if you missed out on this trade, don't worry.

Trading options is a way to bank 100% gains like these - or even better - in just a matter of days.

And you can gain access to even more opportunities like this one...

A Famous Wall Street Firm Paid This Guy $20 Million to Share His Secrets (but He Kept THIS ONE Under Wraps)

He never worked at a fancy investment bank. And he never graduated from college. In fact, he spent much of his career as a customer service rep at an Atlanta Home Depot.

But he became so good at beating the stock market's top traders, he was paid $20 million to divulge almost all of his secrets.

However, he kept his most powerful secret quiet. And today, live on camera, he's agreed to share it.

Watch him officially become $1,050 richer in 15 seconds! And then $940 richer in 11 seconds... $1,260 richer in eight seconds... and $988 richer in seven seconds!

Even better, you'll discover how you can do this all yourself. It's easy!
