Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

Post Earnings Options Review

Our premarket report on Friday focused on two sets of options ideas from companies which had just posted earnings beats that morning. As it turns out, there was a big time opportunity in each of them.

General Electric Co. GE - We signaled the GE Weekly $14-15 Calls, and it was the $14 and $14.50′s that produced solid chances to profit from that idea. The $14′s ran 106% from .36-.74, and the $14.50 really shined with a move from .03 to .25, a whopping gain of 733%

HoneyWell International, Inc. HON – We also highlighted our interest in tracking the HON Weekly $150 & $152.50 Calls for possible day-trades, and while the 152.50′s didnt see a lot of action, the $150′s were a perfect idea, trading in a mind boggling range from .01 to .52, a 5100% single session gain! Big cheers to anyone who caught a piece of that action!


Hasbro, Inc. HAS

Hasbro came out with their quarterly earning report which disappointed, according to the company, because of the Toys ‘R Us shutdown. The stock had already registered a new 52 week low on Friday after nearly two months of backsliding, and we’re still thinking it has a ways to fall.

That’s why we’re going to adopt a bearish stance and signal the HAS Weekly $78-76 Puts to start of this new trading week.

Post Earnings Options Ideas

General Electric Co. GE - In recent months we’ve watched as GE has been hammered back, and it was only recently that the stock began to find support and make a reversal. We’re really paying attention this morning on the heel of the company’s earning release. It’s currently up in the premarket by a significant margin.

We’re going to be looking to take advantage of a possible dip-and-rip scenario here, with a quick strike options trading idea. We want to track the GE Weekly $14-15 Calls*, which should see some nice activity to close out the week.

HoneyWell International, Inc. HON
– We also like the chances of some good opportunities with HON, also coming off the premarket earnings calendar this morning with some strong results for the quarter.

Here we’re going to be monitoring the HON Weekly $150 & $152.50 Calls* for possible day-trades.

*Please be advised that trading weekly options on a Friday carries extreme risk which should never be undertaken unless you an expert trader with disposable funds.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VTVT New Highs & More

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

We’ve been closely tracking VTVT since including it our report on Tuesday morning as a bottom play. As we mentioned yesterday, the timing was essentially perfect. It took off on Tuesday, and yesterday that run persisted just as we suggested it may.

The stock traded in a range from 1.24 to a new high of 2.67 yesterday, representing an intraday move of 115% From Tuesday’s low of .79 the stock has registered a two-day upswing of 238% and has easily been the NASDAQ’s top play of the week.


Onconova Therapeutics, Inc. ONTX

Speaking of bottom plays, we’re always searching for the next heavily oversold stock, and we’ve got a candidate to bring forth today in ONTX. As you can plainly view on the chart snapshot below, the stock has been heavily sold off, and the RSI is definitely giving off that heavily oversold signal.

The last time that happened the stock did mount an appreciable recovery in the ensuing weeks, so we’re going to put ONTX on extended watch.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VTVT Recap & More

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

Our report yesterday morning included  a look at the VTVT chart, and establishing our interest in tracking it as a bottom play. Our timing in this really could not have been any better as the stock not only made it biggest single session move of the year, but also traded its highest volume.

VTVT ran from a low of .79 and reached as high as 1.67, a 53% intraday rip, and ended up closing at 1.19, filling a portion of the large gap which you can plainly see below. Based on the activity we’ve now witnessed, and the still-ripe look of the chart, we’re going to continue to keep a close watch over VTVT.


Van Eck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX)

We also want to begin tracking a pair of options contracts in the GDX chain. Gold has been doing well and looks as if another solid day could be in the cards.

On that event, there should be some nice activity in the GDX Weekly $22.50 & $23 Calls, so we’ll be monitoring for that.



Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. TNDM – Update

It was a week ago today that we were commenting on our coverage of TNDM in 2018. We caught this stock at a low of 2.14 earlier this year, and it has come a long way since then.

This week the stock has traded up to a high of 7.75, marking an increase of 262% since we began tracking it.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CANN Recap & More

General Cannabis Corp. CANN

To kick off this week, we sent out a reminder going over the extensive list of cannabis plays we published on April 4th in anticipation of Friday’s 04/20 Holiday celebrations and connected stock activity.

We expect a rising tide of interest and activity in the cannabis space for the remainder of this week and beyond, during what is one of the busiest times of year for marijuana-related businesses/stocks.

We are already impressed with the move made by CANN since our initial alert and through to this week. On the 4th, following our report, CANN established its base at 2.25 and hasn’t looked back. Yesterday the stock hit 5.75, marking a two week bull run of 156% As we said, we expect to see more moves like this from the myriad cannabis plays we track on a regular basis.

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

We also want to make note of VTVT this morning after noticing a number of attractive features on the chart. Pre-existing shareholders of VTVT are certainly not happy with the events of the past few months, but as opportunistic short-term traders, it has almost everything we look for a regular basis.

In addition to being monstrously oversold, the stock has seen a rise in average volume over the past week, after a massive gap-down which you can plainly view on the snapshot below. What makes the scenario so interesting, is that the company will need to reattain and hold the 1.00/share or risk involuntary delisting from the NASDAQ. With all these factors playing in, we’ll definitely want to put this one on extended watch in the event it attempts to fill even a portion of that gap.
