Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Calls & More

Yesterday’s Winning Options Ideas

We signaled our interest in a range of contracts from three separate options chains yesterday morning, and unsurprisingly, the potential for quick-strike single-session gains was present in all three.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Our AAPL idea was definitely the most solid of the day, with our highlighted Weekly $98-99 Calls each making an appreciable intraday spike:

$98 Calls – Trading Range: .78-1.92 – Max Gain: 146%
$98.50 Calls – Trading Range: .55-1.51 – Max Gain: 175%
$99 Calls– Trading Range: .36-1.15 – Max Gain: 219%

The extended-term play we targeted also made a big move. The AAPL 07/17 $101 Calls traded in a range from .79-1.37, for a nice 73% rip. We’ll want to continue tracking this set of contracts in sessions to come, with plenty of time before their expiration.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) – Next up were the SPY Weekly $208-210 Calls, which we were pretty sure would produce some decent action based purely on the overall market sentiment we were observing leading up to our submission of the idea. Our assumption proved to be spot-on, and we observed some excellent moves during the session:

$208 Calls – Trading Range: 1.13-1.97 – Max Gain: 74%
$208.50 Calls – Trading Range: .81-1.56 – Max Gain: 93%
$209 Calls– Trading Range: .55-1.19 – Max Gain: 116%
$209.50 Calls– Trading Range: .33-.86 – Max Gain: 161%
$210 Calls– Trading Range: .20-.60 – Max Gain: 200%

_____

Computer Sciences Corp. CSC – As a bonus idea we called attention to the CSC 06/17 $44-48 Calls and while a couple of the contracts contained in that range failed to trade any notable volume, respectable gains were still there for the taking in the other three:

$45 Calls– Trading Range: 3.20-5.05 – Max Gain: 58%
$47 Calls– Trading Range: 1.65-2.75 – Max Gain: 66%
$48 Calls– Trading Range: 1.25-3.48 – Max Gain: 178%

This is why we love options trading. Out of thirteen sets of contracts we slated for tracking, having eleven produce the opportunity for big gains, and seven of those produce chances at gains of more than 100% is a perfect illustration of why we have not focused solely upon stocks for years now.

More Fresh Options Ideas: We’d like to follow up that recap with some new interests this morning, each with untraded-upon earnings beats to consider. We will be following the activity in Williams & Sonoma WSM Weekly $53-55 Calls as well as Dollar Tree, Inc DLTR Weekly $83-86 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MXSG, ABRW Recaps, Options & More

Mexus Gold US  MXSG

MXSG was the first of a pair of extended watchlist plays from yesterday’s morning report to produce an appreciable intraday move that could’ve been used for healthy single-session gains.

From its opening price of .045 the stock spent the entire morning on a steady uptrend that carried it to a high of .0699 shortly after 12pm. That was good for a daily profit of up to 55%  We next observed a dip-and-rip pattern in afternoon trading wherein the stock came down to find support at .0481 before launching back to the closing PPS of .0615; an added swing of 28%

Those moves came on more than quadruple the 30-day average trading volume and with a strong close, we’ll be sure to leave MXSG on our track-list in coming sessions.

We actually called this play back on February 5th at which time the stock was trading at  .0016. Yesterday’s high represented an unreal 3744% increase in roughly three-and-a-half months over that low!


American Brewing Co. Inc.  ABRW

The other significant runner that showed itself yesterday was ABRW. This was one that was also good for a quick rip right from the opening bell.

We witnessed an immediate spike from .98 up to 1.51, which represents a rip of 54% While the stock did trade mostly sideways for the remainder of the session, it managed to close at 1.35, maintaining well over half of its daily advance. That qualifies this play for continued observation as well.


Fresh Options Ideas

For the first time this week, we’re going to submit a couple of fresh plays on the options trading front.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) – The SPY has been a go-to for us when we want a chance to leverage overall market sentiment to our advantage. With strong performance from the markets as a whole, as well as cracking its 50DMA yesterday for the first time in several sessions, our highlighted range here is going to be SPY Weekly $208-210 Calls.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – It has been quite some time since we formulated any options ideas for AAPL, but it is one that has produced winners for us on a multitude of occasions in the past. The stock has been rebounding and showing strength over the past couple of sessions. Couple that with, as we just said, an overall bullishness in the general tone of the markets at large, and it makes AAPL an attractive target for us today, and into the near future. We’re going to zero in on AAPL Weekly $98-99 Calls for possible quick-strike opportunities, as well as AAPL 07/17 $101 Calls for a more of an extended-term idea.

Bonus Idea: CSC 06/17 $44-48 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BBEP Recap & Other Updates


Breitburn Energy Partners, Inc. BBEP – Another Update

After signaling BBEP in Thursday morning’s premarket report as a “Bankrupt Bottom-Bouncer” we witnessed a low of .055 followed by a 100% jump to a high of .11 on Friday.

As we were congratulating those who took advantage of the move in yesterday’s premarket report, we also mentioned that we’d remain interested in BBEP as long as it managed to maintain support above the .06-.065 range on any pullbacks. The stock achieved that feat right from the outset as it gapped up, opened at .078, and kept running.

We ultimately witnessed a trading range from that morning low of .078 up to a new high of .132. That represented an intraday upswing of 69% and a three-session swing of 140% over our observed low of .055 on Thurdsday.

We’ll continue to stay on the stock’s trail, watching for continued registering of higher lows and higher highs.


Terra Tech Corp. TRTC

When we began re-alerting and closely tracking an old favorite in TRTC toward the end of March, it was just coming off of a nice run-up that had followed a long period of mostly sideways trading.  Subsequent to that point we ended up clocking this play over an impressive range as it ran from a low of .2162-.7455; a 245% upswing in a period of just under three weeks.

Following that mega-move, the stock began to see a good deal of consolidation over the next few weeks. That came to an abrupt halt yesterday as the stock bounced off of a higher swing low at .2698 and managed a nice 30% increase. Now trading in the low-to-mid .30′s, we’re going to watch intently in coming sessions for the possibility of a protracted rebound.


 LendingClub Corp. LC 

We took an interest in LC yesterday, alerting the stock as a potential bottom-bouncer in our morning report. It had been coming off of being egregiously oversold, and setting higher lows off of its 52-week lows for the preceding few sessions.

We ended up seeing a modest intraday run of 9% from 4.19-4.58, but most importantly, the stock registered higher lows and higher highs over the prior session, and we’ll keep tracking it for a continuation of that pattern We’ve pointed out on the chart below, a significant one-dollar gap that could be filled if the stock maintains the present trend, as well as an impending bullish cross on the MACD.

PLCE Options Recap

On Tuesday, we submitted our interest in PLCE Weekly $70-75 Calls for a quick mid-week strike, and what we got instead was a supremely strong performance that lasted the remainder of the week.

On Wednesday, contracts within our target range yielded gains from 112-315% On Thursday
possible profits were a bit more subdued yet still highly respectable, giving us chances at gains ranging from 30-100% on the day.

On Friday, our idea managed to offer up yet another solid performance. The $70 Calls ran 45% intraday from 3.19-4.64, while the $72.50′s scored a double-bag-plus gain for the third straight day, spiking from .90-2.18, a 142% swing.


Breitburn Energy Partners, Inc. BBEP – Update

In Thursday morning’s premarket report we signaled BBEP as a “Bankrupt Bottom-Bouncer” slating it for observation, and the tag came with excellent timing. Despite a recent Chapter 11 filing looming, we managed to catch it at a bottom and track it over an impressive gain. Observing a low of .055 Thursday, we watched as the stock subsequently ran to a high of .11 Friday for a perfect 100% session-over-session upswing.

BBEP closed at .07, and in order for us to remain interested in the play moving forward, we’re going to need to see it maintain support at or above the channel between .06-.065 on any pullbacks.


MyDx, Inc. MYDX

We’ve taken notice of a stock that is showing a confluence of several attractive features at the moment in MYDX. What we’ve got here is a play that qualifies as a low-float, low volume, bottom-bouncer, and it’s got an interesting back story to boot.

MYDX produced a strong bounce off of its recently-recorded 52-week low (.17 on 05/18-05/19) on Friday, after crumbling for a more than 50% loss since the beginning of last week, when it was trading around .40.  We’re going to want to keep an eye peeled for signs of a continued rebound as we kick off this new trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PLCE Options Recap & More

The Children’s Place, Inc. PLCE – Options Review

The first thing we want to mention this morning is the performance our running options idea for PLCE that we formulated earlier in the week. We continued to stay on the trail of PLCE Weekly $70-75 Calls in yesterday’s premarket report, even after they had provided us with chances at gains ranging from 112-315% in the prior session.

Despite the $75′s being a bit too far out of the money for any notable action, the other two contracts from within our target sets performed solidly once again.

The $70 Calls traded in a daily range from 2.85-3.70, which marked an intraday rise of 30% The $72.50′s fared even better, running from a low of .65 to a high of 1.30, marking an even 100% rip and the second consecutive session wherein the stock provided the opportunity at at least a double-bagger.


Immunomedics, Inc. IMMU

We tagged IMMU for observation on Friday of last week, and since that time the stock has made an appreciable swing to the upside. Our observed low on the stock is 3.59, which gave way to a new high of 4.25 yesterday. That represents a modest yet notable 18% increase.

We’ll want to continue to monitor the activity in this play which will hold our interest moving forward, provided it can maintain support at or above its previous resistance point of 4.00 on any pullbacks.

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., May 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Immunomedics, Inc. (Nasdaq:IMMU) today announced that the Scientific Program Committee of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has selected two of the Company’s abstracts for oral presentation at two Clinical Science Symposium Sessions during their 2016 Annual Meeting, scheduled for June 3-7, 2016 at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Global Equity International, Inc. GEQU

GEQU has proven to be a solid winner for us in the past. We recently re-tagged it at a perfect time on 11th of this month, just as it was coming off a bottom. We saw the stock  trading as low as .0123 yesterday it closed at a new high of .03, which goes down as a 144% swing.

We’ll keep our eyes on this one as well, in the event it can maintain support above the 200DMA of .0235.
