Triple-Digit Winners Seven and Eight for 2012 — and a 51.72% Gainer for Good Measure

The market may be in correction mode, but your Bull Market Alert option gains continue to come hard and fast. You now have eight triple-digit gainers in the first three months of 2012.
First, take your 143.94% gains in your Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) April $470 call options. Hold on to the stock, as it has one of the best-looking charts out there.
Second, I’m recommending that you sell your remaining May $85 calls for a 116.22% gain in Alexion Pharmaceutical (ALXN). This is your third triple-digit options gain in ALXN, and I’d be surprised if you don’t see more option recommendations in this one in the future.
Finally, with your June $60 call options in Monster (MNST) now up 51.72%, sell half of your options here to lock in your gains. Hold on to the stock and your remaining options for potentially bigger gains ahead.
