Thank you again for your response. Now I understand how my stock price target correlates to the targeted call price premium. I was having trouble with that. It is just simple math.

Target stock price - Strike Price = targeted call price premium

I guess I did not realize how much leverage would affect returns.

In the case of my INTC call(s), I now can see that my expected returns (if my target price is accurate) is $7 and $5+ for a 300% and 463% return. Wow!! Calls can really leverage returns (IF the price targets are correct for the corresponding dates - hence the risk).

Thank you so much for helping me work through my targets and possible returns. It really makes me understand the inner-workings of options better!! Thanks again!!!!
