Genesis Healthcare, Inc. GEN – Bottom Watch

We would like to place GEN on bottom watch this morning, after taking notice of the chart setup on our routine scan this morning.

As you can see from the included snapshot, we have a number of factors contributing to the stock’s attractive bottom setup. The stock has been falling sharply all week, cruising down toward its 200DMA at an alarming rate. Additionally, we have a MACD which is exhibiting unsustainable downward divergence, and an RSI indicating the stock has just entered extremely oversold territory.

This is exactly the sort of setup we look for in potential bottom bounce plays, and we’re going to slot GEN for observation in coming sessions to be ready for that eventuality.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FAST Review & More

Fastenal Co. FAST – Recap

We have had a continuous run of good fortune with our past several options calls over the last few weeks, and we continued to press our luck yesterday in signaling a range of options ideas for FAST.

We highlighted the FAST Weekly $50-55 Calls  as our fresh idea in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and not only did each of them provide chances for single-session profits, but they did so in absolutely grand fashion.

Serious multi-bag moves were on the menu regardless of which of the three strike points in our selected range was chosen by traders, with the $55′s being the most eye-popping with 38-bagger!

$50 Calls – Range: 1.65-6.50 – Max Gain: 294%
$52.50 Calls – Range: .45-4.00 – Max Gain: 789%
$55 Calls – Range: .05-1.98 – Max Gain: 3860%

Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IDRA

We also want to place IDRA on bottom watch this morning after noticing how oversold the stock has become.

A merger agreement, one that wasn’t particularly favored to begin with, was cancelled, causing a big selloff. The kicker, is a literal ‘kicker’, a cancellation fee of $6M payable to IDRA by the proposed merger partner. That’s why we feel now is a good time to begin watching IDRA for a possible bottom bounce.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PEP Recap & More

PepsiCo, Inc. PEP – Options Recap

Yesterday morning Pepsi’s earnings provided us with one of the pair of options ideas included in our report. We were focused on the PepsiCo, Inc. PEP Weekly $109-112 Calls and are pleased to report that we found success with those immediately.

The single-session gain opportunities available to anyone who partook were substantial to say the least, continuing an impressive pattern of huge options winners we’ve uncovered over the last several sessions.

$109 Calls – Range: 1.23-4.00 – Max Gain: 225%
$110 Calls – Range: .70-3.05 – Max Gain: 336%
$111 Calls – Range: .38-2.05 – Max Gain: 439%
$112 Calls – Range: .19-1.30 – Max Gain: 589%


Tesla, Inc. TSLA

On Friday we began tracking some TSLA Calls, and we did remind our readers of these contracts yesterday, cautioning that it appeared as if the stock was ready to facilitate some good moves in our targets.

The TSLA 08/02 $300-315 Calls were those targets, and our hunch proved correct. While we swept the range, finding gains in all seven sets of contracts, in the interest of time, we’ll simply provide the moves from the bottom and the top of the range. Just keep in mind that the sets in between also enjoyed commensurate moves to the upside.

The $300 Calls ran from a low of 22.54 to a high of 35.81 for a gain of 59% while the $315′s ran from 16.70 to 26.01; an increase of 56%

SPDRA S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

After following up a string of successful SPY calls from last week, we added a fresh quick-strike idea yesterday morning. With the markets looking ready to pop after positive jobs numbers were released, we signaled our interest in tracking the SPY 07/09 $275.50-277 Calls.

Trading options with same-day expiry always carries a high risk, but in this case, it was well worth it, with each of our designated contracts producing gains of a significant nature on the day.

$275.50 Calls – Range: 1.18-2.74 – Max Gain: 132%
$276 Calls – Range: .80-2.01 – Max Gain: 151%

$277 Calls – Range: .23-.93 – Max Gain: 304%

Tesla, Inc. TSLA

An idea that we formulated on Friday was with some extended term TSLA Calls. We wanted to remind readers of these contracts this morning, as the stock is behaving like we might now see the move that we predicted at the end of last week.

The TSLA 08/02 $300-315 Calls should be in line to see some nice gains with the stock itself gapping up hard here in the premarket.

Fresh Idea:
For another fresh options trading idea on the heels of PEP’s earning beat, we’re going to be tracking the activity in the PepsiCo, Inc. PEP $109-112 Calls.


RiceBran Technology RIBT

We have included RIBT in our reports on each of the past two Mondays, and the stock has made appreciable moves to the upside in that time span.

Between our initial alert last Monday, after a low of 2.21 from which the stock hasn’t looked back, yesterday’s new high reached 3.09, marking a one week upswing of 40% We’ll be interested to see how far the stock can continue to streak into blue skies.

SPDRA S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We want to formulate a new options idea for the SPY, but first, we would like to present the final performance of the Weekly SPY Calls we signaled last Tuesday.

Those were the SPY Weekly SPY Weekly $272.50-274 Calls and the gains they experienced over the course of the short holiday week were exceedingly impressive, with percentage increases in the thousands on two out of four contracts, with the other two set not trailing far behind, with huge multi-bag gains of their own. .

As we mentioned above, we’ve got a fresh idea for the SPY for today as well. in the wake of this morning’s positive jobs numbers. We’re going to keep an eye on the SPY 07/09 (Expire Today*) 275.50-277 Calls.

*Speculation in these contracts today is tantamount to trading weekly options on a Friday. Should NOT be attempted, except by veteran traders with disposal funds!


Intrexon Corp. XON – Form-4 Bottom Bouncer

We’re very interested in the current scenario with XON. We noticed the CEO purchasing roughly $100M worth of the company’s stock last week at 13.37, and we like the current technical setup as well, with a strong bottom bounce in progress along with a gap on the chart to the upside.

We could see an significant move happening for the stock itself, but we also want to include an extended term options idea for more leverage in the case of a protracted recovery, which is presently looking like a solid possibility. We’ll have an eye on the XON 08/17 $14-17 Calls.
