Originally, options were introduced as instruments to hedge risk but now, that’s just a thing of the past. A lot of retailers are finding trading in options lucrative as in a single day, not only one but multiple options have the potential to give multifold returns. Additionally, the capital required for buying option is small when compared to buying a futures contract.

The first name in the list is Colgate-Palmolive (India); the stock’s 1660, 1680, 1700 and 1720 Call option strike have delivered more than 500 per cent return in a single trading session and that too, when Tuesday’s trading session has just begun! The 1720 Call option strike has jumped more than 650 per cent. This option had closed at Rs 1.60 as of May 25 and today, it made a high of Rs 18, and currently, it is trading around Rs 12.5. So, if anyone would have bought 1720 Call option of Colgate-Palmolive at the time of Monday’s closing, his total investment would have been Rs 560 (1.6*350) and Rs 4,375 as of today.
Other stock options, which are seen skyrocketing are Asian Paints’ 2880, 2900, 2920, 2940, 2960, 2980 and 3000 Call option strike.
