In this screen, we look for calls that are attractively priced for call buying.  By attractively priced, we mean that, according to our Value Line Options Model, the premiums are a bargain in view of the profits you can make if the stock rises. (Bear in mind, that the most you can lose is your premium.) In our screening, we have specified that, in addition to attractively priced premiums, these calls have some tangible or exercise value (i.e., they are in-the-money”), are reasonably liquid, and have current leverage to make at least four times the percentage gain as the underlying stock. A search for these options with our Online Option Screener produced a list of the following calls:
