Activision Blizzard. Inc. ATVI – To follow up with our idea from Wednesday morning in our premarket report, the ATVI Weekly $42-43.50 Calls, we wanted to provide one more update after another big move from the stock pushed our highlighted targets to new highs yesterday, and registered a really impressive two-day swing.

AstraZeneca plc AZN – The AZN Weekly $38-39.50 Calls  were on our radar yesterday morning as our fresh options idea, and despite the lower end of that range being pushed too far in the money, we still saw some solid moves out of the $39′s and $39.50′s.

The $39′s ran from .55-.90 for a gain of 64%, while the $39.50′s cruised from a low of .19 to hit .55; a big-time intraday pop of 189%  We want to continue to watching this chain as well, with the 39.50′s, and also rolling up to include the $40 and $40.50′s*.

Invacare Corp. IVC – Recap

Also appearing in yesterday’s report, was IVC, which we tagged in our extended watchlist. The stock made a good move on the day, which warrants further observation in coming sessions.

From a low of 7.21 IVC reached 9.54, which was good for an intraday rise of 32% which made it the second highest gainer on the NASDAQ for Thursday. We’ll continue to monitor this one as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ATVI Winners & More

Activision Blizzard. Inc. ATVI – Big Winner

We signaled a range of calls in the Activision chain yesterday morning in our premarket report following the company’s earnings report, which were bullish despite the fact that ATVI’s quarterly figures were a disappointment. We indicated that we would put the ATVI Weekly $42-43.50 Calls on watch, and they were good ideas across the board.

In each of our designated contract sets, we saw not one, but two remarkable intraday swings, that gave traders plenty of chances for single-session profits of a significant nature. We’ve listed all the moves and total possible gains below:

$42 Calls - Move #1: 1.48-3.20 (+116%)  | Move #2: 1.32-3.35 (+154%)
$42.50 Calls - Move #1: 1.12-2.75 (+146%) | Move #2: .98-2.85 (+191%)

Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. PTX

Even as we continue our excellent 2019 track record for options ideas, we don’t want to forget about the stocks on our watchlist that have been performing well.

A fantastic example of that is a stock we tagged as a bottom watch play back on December 20th. Over the past seven weeks, the stock has ramped up quite impressively, leading to a new high yesterday that we wanted to recap today.

From our observed low of .32 on PTX subsequent to our alert, to yesterday’s new high, represents an increase of 588%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ATVI Options & More

Activision Blizzard. Inc. ATVI

We focused on stocks quite a bit earlier on in the week, so this morning we wanted to take the opportunity to put another potential options play into the mix. We’re constantly looking for company’s that have just reported earnings, which gives us the potential for the volatility that we want.

In the case of ATVI, while its quarterly figures were lacking, the tock was at a bottom, and appears to want to go green today. We will put the ATVI Weekly $42-43.50 Calls on watch this morning, and monitor for the remainder of the week for a possible rebound off of what was its new 52-week low, registered on Monday.



SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY)

Our regular readers are well aware of our fondness for the SPY ETF. We have taken advantage of it on many occasions. A quick peek into our archives reveals that today is the 114th time we’ve mentioned the SPY in our newsletters. It’s a well that we continue to draw from, with no indications of that ever changing.

Today, after such a big move yesterday wherein the SPY broke its 200DMA, we want to look for  continuation of the bullish behavior we’re observing. We will designate the SPY Weekly $274.50-275.50 Calls as ones to watch as we head through this midweek.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Stock Calls

Stock Recaps

We don’t very often dabble in OTC stocks anymore, with our primary focus being on big boards and options plays these days. We do make exceptions when it’s called for however, and this morning, we just wanted to draw attention to a couple of good calls we’ve made in that arena recently.

Driven Deliveries, Inc. DRVD -We tagged DRVD a couple of times in the last week, first in our report last Thursday morning, and promptly saw a perfect double bagger as the stock ran 100% from 1.50 that day to 3.00 on Friday.

More than just your average OTC throwaway, DRVD has a marijuana delivery service, and we’ve always been attracted to businesses in the cannabis space. The company also completed a 12.35:1 forward split the day we initially alerted on it and that move came post-split.  We’ll be interested to continue monitoring this stock.
_____

China Health Management Corp. CNHC - We also have tagged CNHC a couple of times in that same span, first highlighting it on Friday, and then again yesterday morning in our extended watchlist. Generally speaking, even if a stock is not featured in our reports, if it appears multiple times in our extended watchlist, there’s good chance it has performed well.

In the case of CNHC, we saw a move from .012 on the day of our initial alert to .04 yesterday. That’s a two-session upswing of 233%
____

Coty, Inc. COTY  - Speaking of the big boards, we highlighted COTY on Friday morning as well, selecting some weekly options that produced multi-bag gains for us. But the stock itself, between that time from a low of 8.50 and this morning’s premarket high of 11.58, has risen 36% in just a short while. We’ll want to continue tracking here as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Playing the SPY

Friday Options Review

Coty, Inc. COTY- Among our fresh options ideas in Friday morning’s report was a range of contracts in the COTY chain, and from that, came the opportunity for ourselves and our readers to log some very impressive daily profits.

Our targets were the Coty, Inv. COTY Weekly $8-9 Calls, and all three of those contract sets produced multi-bag intraday days for us.

$8 Calls – Range: .56-1.35 – Max Gain: 141%
$8.50 Calls – Range: .22-.83 – Max Gain: 277%
$9 Calls – Range: .05-.34 – Max Gain: 580%
_____

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $270.50-269 Puts

We were also entertaining a range of Puts in the SPY chain, as it appeared the markets wanted to begin the session in bearish fashion. That certainly proved to be the case, as the first half of the session saw a significant backslide prior to a late afternoon recovery to finish the day flat.

That activity allowed for a good showing from three of the four contracts in our highlighted range, the SPY Weekly $270.50-269 Puts. While the potential windfalls weren’t as extreme as the aforementioned play, they still each recorded a multi-bag move on the day.

$270 Calls
 – Range: 1.00-2.20 – Max Gain: 120%
$269.50 Calls – Range: .71-1.70 – Max Gain: 139%
$269 Calls – Range: .49-1.35 – Max Gain: 176%

Fresh Idea:
Now that we’re seeing a bit of a bounceback which figures to lead to a higher open this morning, we’ll go ahead and shift our early focus today on the SPY 02/11 $271-272 Calls. These expire today, and therefore must be treated like a weekly option on a Friday. It’s a risky proposition. Expert level traders only!
