Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Recap, GEQU & More

SPY Options Recap

We have found tremendous success in options trading this week. We enjoyed multi-bag moves from contracts in the FB and GPRO chains early on, and yesterday, we saw the same success in our targeted SPY Calls.

The specific contracts we tagged for observation were the SPY Weekly $191.50-193 Calls and in addition to some healthy initial pops, we saw dip-and-rip patterns in every case providing for a second chance for huge intraday gains, which registered as follows:

$191.50 Calls  – Initial Run: .49-1.01 – Gain: 106% – 2nd Swing: .27-.87 – Gain: 222%
$192 Calls  – Initial Run: .67-1.27 – Gain: 90% – 2nd Swing: ..41-1.15 – Gain: 180%
$192.50 Calls  – Initial Run: .49-1.01 – Gain: 106% – 2nd Swing: .27-.88 – Gain: 226%
$193 Calls  – Initial Run: .33-.77 – Gain: 133% – 2nd Swing: ..19-.64 – Gain: 237%

Pretty much every options-trading idea we submitted in our reports this week worked out exceedingly well, so congratulations to any of our followers who enjoyed some of the same success. It’s a perfect example of why we like to mix  options ideas in with the ideas we have pertaining to stocks. Be sure to stick with us into next week, when we’ll be sure to do it all over again!

Global Equity International, Inc. GEQU

This had certainly been one of our biggest standouts of the week in terms of equities. On Monday we flagged GEQU and subsequently observed the stock trading at a low of .021 that day. By Wednesday it had hit .036 (+70%), and continued to pile on the gains during yesterday’s session.

We noted the stock’s recent tendency to push to higher PPS levels despite bearing a chart which looks heavily overbought, and that trend continued with an intraday move from a low of .0355 to .044, a 24% percent jump. From Monday’s low, it marked a four-session increase of 110%

Again, when the momentum finally dies down, we’ll be looking to take advantage of a consolidation followed by a rebound.

Cherubim Interests, Inc. CHIT

CHIT is a stock that we’ve been tracking since last Friday, and despite trading sideways for most of the week the stock did end up making quite an appreciable move. We saw it rise from a low of .0016 and fall just a tick short of cracking into pennyland.

Yesterday’s high represented a three-session swing of 725% and the move came on nearly seven times the monthly average volume.

Blue Horseshow Stocks: More Great Options Calls, COLV, GEQU

Continued Options Trading Success

Yesterday, we recapped the huge performances from the options contracts we designated for tracking in Tuesday’s premarket report, which returned the possibility of intraday gains ranging from 87-410%

Those were the GPRO Weekly $31-32.50 Calls, and the FB Weekly $90-91 Calls, and based on what we were seeing in yesterday’s premarket, we also offered our opinion as to how things could play out from that point forward.

To the folks just arriving to the party, so to speak, we suggested “waiting for the dip caused by profit-takers to ride the subsequent rebound.” The action in our observed contracts essentially transpired according to our expectations, and once again, impressive intraday profits were there for the taking.

$31 Calls  – Daily Range: .39-1.12 – Max Gain: 187%
$31.50 Calls  – Daily Range: .29-.85 – Max Gain: 193%
$32 Calls  – Daily Range: .21-.67 – Max Gain: 219%
$32.50 Calls  – Daily Range: .13-.39 – Max Gain: 200%

$90 Calls  – Daily Range: .43-1.18 – Max Gain: 168%
$90.50 Calls  – Daily Range: .34-.91 – Max Gain: 168%
$91 Calls  – Daily Range: .22-.73 – Max Gain: 204%

In addition to the initial ranges listed above, even more added gains were technically possible, as market action allowed for secondary swings in almost every case.

The markets appear strong in early trading once again, so we’ll be approaching today’s session in much the same fashion as we have the preceding two, except today we’ll be looking to modify our strike prices according to present conditions.

New Idea:

We’ll also look at the possibility of taking advantage of SPY Weekly $191.50-193 Calls should today’s activity continue to mimic recent sessions.

Coastal Integrated Services, Inc.  COLV

We included this subpenny stock on our extended watchlist yesterday, and COLV manage to record its third consecutive session of higher highs and higher lows off of its recently registered annual low (.0012).

It ran from .0024 to a daily high of .0037, which represents an intraday gain of 54%. COLV will need to continue to establish higher base levels of support in order to keep our attention going forward.

Global Equity International, Inc. GEQU

Speaking of extended watchlist plays, on Monday we tagged GEQU for tracking, and have been met with the chance for some respectable intraweek gains. The stock logged a low of .021 on Monday, and as of yesterday’s high of .036, we had witnessed a 70% increase.

The GEQU Chart appears quite overbought, but the same has been true in recent weeks and the stock has been on a continual uptrend. We’ll be on the lookout for the possibility of further increases while remaining open to the fact that a consolidation could be in the cards, and in that event, staying ready to take advantage of a possible dip-and-rip scenario.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Huge Options Calls, Bottom-Plays

Huge Options Calls

Our first order of business this morning is to review the performance of the options contracts we signaled for observation in yesterday’s premarket report, We specified our interest in trading GPRO Weekly $31-32.50 Calls, and the FB Weekly $90-91 Calls, and every single set of contracts we tracked provided the opportunity for impressive profits before lunchtime!

$31 Calls  – Daily Range: .19-.97 – Max Gain: 410%
$31.50 Calls  – Daily Range: .25-.75 – Max Gain: 200%
$32 Calls  – Daily Range: .19-.57 – Max Gain: 200%
$32.50 Calls  – Daily Range: .17-.40 – Max Gain: 135%

$90 Calls  – Daily Range: .84-1.57 – Max Gain: 87%
$90.50 Calls  – Daily Range: .70-1.32 – Max Gain: 89%
$91 Calls  – Daily Range: .52-1.10 – Max Gain: 112%

Later in the afternoon, the markets dipped back considerably and continued to backslide into the close. This morning, we’re seeing a substantial gap-up on the heels of jobs numbers, leading us to believe that similar action could transpire during today’s session with regard to an early surge.

In that case, anyone who may have shown up late to the party and held contracts overnight, should be on the lookout for the opportunity to take profits early on. Those who are just arriving, should be waiting for the dip caused by those profit-takers to ride the subsequent rebound.

Vape Holdings, Inc.  VAPE

We’re going to highlight VAPE this morning as a bottom-bouncer that spent the better part of the summer on an overall downtrend, and has just begun to trend up off of the new annual low it established on Monday.

Taking a further look at the chart we get the sense that a more protracted recovery could take place, so we’ll pin this one to our tracking list in the days ahead.

Also on Bottom-Watch

We’ve run across a few other stocks that are trading at or near their relative bottoms that will serve as our extended watchlist today:

Coastal Integrated Services, Inc. COLV

Patriot Scientific Corp. PTSC

Pieris Pharmaceuticals, Inc. PIRS

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CCTC Update & More

Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. CCTC

No sooner than we were commenting on CCTC’s fantastic performance in the month of September in yesterday’s morning report, did the stock continue to bull its way to new highs. As is plain to see on the included chart snapshot, it has mostly been one positive session after another.

We had just pointed out the 142% increase CCTC had made from our observed low of .36 to Friday’s high of .87, and the stock managed to impress us again. From a daily low of .851, it cracked through a big psychological barrier at a dollar, and managed a new high of 1.07. It figured in as a 26% intraday run, and extended our total observed increase in just over a couple of weeks to 197%

The chart is now well into overbought territory, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see a bit of a pullback. In order for us to remain interested in CCTC, we’ll need to see it maintain support in the channel between .75-.65, at the lowest.

Ballard Power Systems, Inc. BLDP

A quick tag search for BLDP on our blog shows our long history with this stock, and we wanted to quickly re-mention it this morning. We most recently tagged it as a bottom-watch play on July 2nd after noticing the stock taking a big backslide. It has been mostly in a downtrend since that time, but we’re going to want to begin watching more intently.

The company inked a major deal to supply 300 buses in Foshan and Yunfu, China, with their fuel cell systems (>>View PR). According to a ‘Zacks’ article posted yesterday, BLDP’s transaction is “Valued at $17 million, and the deal will also bring in potential recurring royalties starting from 2017.”

We’ll continue to keep BLDP on our extended-term recovery watchlist.

Options Ideas For a Market Rebound

After five straight days of down markets, we’re going to be on the lookout for a rebound today. We’re seeing a gap-up here in early trading, so we wanted to venture a couple of options ideas if events play out as we expect.

We’re going to zero in on GoPro, Inc. GPRO and Facebook, Inc. FB for potential opportunities, specifically the GPRO Weekly $31-32.50 Calls, and the FB Weekly $90-91 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recaps, Recovery Play & More

Options Recaps

Our closing thoughts in Friday’s premarket report included some options ideas pertaining to our bullish feelings on AAPL and the SPY.

Specifically, we targeted SPY Weekly $193-194.50 Calls, and AAPL Weekly $115 and $116 Calls and included the following warning: “Trading options with a weekly expiration on a Friday carries an inherently elevated risk-reward factor, and is certainly not for the faint-of-heart, or beginning traders.” That would have been an important thing to remember, because the markets did pull back toward the end of the day, eventually rendering those contracts worthless, but not before opportunities for some big intraday gains were presented.

Early trading ranges in our SPY Calls rendered the chance at gains between 70-130% while the AAPL Calls did considerably better. The $115′s made a 293% move from .27-1.06, and the $116′s took the cake with a 520% surge from a nickel up to .31!

Heron Therapeutics, Inc. HRTX Puts

We also had some successful ideas going in the opposite direction; our bearish sentiment on HRTX paid some excellent dividends via the options chain last week, as we were mentioning on Friday. The stock continued to backslide into the close, reaching the $30-range with a daily low of 30.06. From our observed high of 42.25 at the time of our initial alert last Wednesday that’s roughly a 30% loss.

It will be interesting to see if this morning’s PR from HRTX affects the dynamics of the chart.

Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. CCTC

We also want to make another quick mention of CCTC, which has continually set new highs for us in the month of September.

We tracked the stock to some more nice gains last week, as it made a healthy intraday move of 21% from .72 to .87. That extends the total range we’ve observed following our initial alerts earlier this month from a low of .36 to Friday’s high; a total move of 142% in just two weeks’ time.

Totally Hemp Crazy, Inc. THCZ

We tagged this old familiar play on Friday for the first time since spring, and it turned out to be fortuitous timing as the stock made a noteworthy intraday jump.  THCZ traded from a low of .09 up as high as .1189, a 32% spike.

We’ll begin to pay closer attention to this and other cannabis-related stocks as election time draws nearer and the issue of marijuana is once again tested on ballots. We’ll be open to the possibility of new waves of attention for the sector as a whole, and be sure to keep our ear to the tracks for relevant developments.

Pier 1 Imports, Inc. PIR

A failure to beat Wall Street’s expectations on both guidance and earnings led PIR to gap down on Friday, though the dip wasn’t sustained. After seeing a low of 6.84 the stock did manage to recover quite a bit of ground into a 7.61 close. This transpired at a time when the chart was already fairly oversold, and that effect has been magnified as we point out on the chart snapshot below.

We’re going to have PIR on an extended-term recovery watch. A return to even the 50DMA would spell significant gains from the current juncture.
