Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bearish Options, Bottom Play

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. CBRL – Recap

First up this morning is a quick recap of the fresh options idea we formulated for yesterday morning’s premarket report. We had designated the CBRL Weekly $165-170 Calls as our targets of interest.

Two of those three contract sets produced opportunities for multi-bag gains on the day, with the third not far behind: 

$165 Calls – Range: 5.25-9.57 – Max Gain:
227%
$167.50 Calls – Range: 1.20-3.50 – Max Gain: 393%
$170 Calls – Range: .56-1.45 – Max Gain: 227%


DURRECT Corp. DRRX – Recap 

DRRX is a play that we began tracking last month (08/07). Following that initial report, we observed the stock trading for as little 1.22.

In the four weeks which have followed, DRRX has been a steady riser, stair-stepping its way gradually up to its new high yesterday of an even 2.00/share. That works out to a very respectable rise of 64%


Neurotrope, Inc. NTRP

We also want to shine a light on the current setup of the chart on NTRP. Poor marks on for its Alzheimer’s treatment should have pushed it down quite a bit, but there seems to be no readily apparent reason why the stock should have fallen as low as it did following the lackluster report on the company’s clinical trials.

At present the stock is hugely oversold, and from a technical standpoint alone, could begin a reversal on little more than a breath of air. Indication from the MACD suggests convergence toward a bullish cross in the making. Should enough people catch on to the present scenario and load up cheap shares at current pricing, it could happen sooner rather than later. Even a partial fill of the massive gap on the chart would mean big gain chances.

We published a light newsletter yesterday morning containing just one specific idea, which was the COP Weekly $61-62.50 Calls. Fortunately, when you come up a solid plays like these, one is all you need!

New Relic Inc. NEWR – Fresh Idea

We also want to bring NEWR into the mix today with a longer-term recovery idea. The stock has not only been bouncing off of recent lows, but we’ve also got some Form-4 activity at these low levels.

We’ll watch NEWR in the weeks and perhaps even months ahead, using the NEWR
12/20 $60-65 Calls
as our potential vehicle.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: COP Options Idea

ConocoPhillips COP – Options Idea

We’re running a little light this morning as we pick up for a new trading week, with no interesting earnings plays to fall back on. However, in our morning scan, we’ve picked up on an interesting play with energy giant ConocoPhillips.

The stock has been in a bullish pattern for most of the month so far, and this morning, we’re seeing a lot of oil plays bucking the trend of the overall markets, which appear to be bearish at the moment. We’re going to place a range of weekly options on watch this morning to coincide with the activity that’s currently unfolding.

Our targets of interest are going to be the COP Weekly $61-62.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Plays

MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. MCFT – Fresh Idea
-
We’ve picked up on a very interesting chart shape in Mastercraft this morning. The stock was well on its way to a solid recovery after bouncing off of its bottom at the end of last month. Despite the company’s earnings beat yesterday, the stock saw a gap-down followed by another bottom bounce.

We are interested in tracking the MCFT 10/18 $15-17.50 Calls in the weeks ahead, which will work out quite nicely if the stock manages another rebound similar to the one it exhibited in recent weeks.


Overstock.com Inc OSTK – Recap

The last time we tagged OSTK was a couple of weeks ago, on the morning of August 27th. We had scored some solid opportunities with short-term options in its chain the week before, but that report was a simple tag on the stock itself.

Subsequent to that highlight of OSTK, the stock saw a low of 14.72. That was followed by seven consecutive bull sessions by the stock, including yesterday’s which sent OSTK to a new high 27.38. That works out to an upswing of 86% in the month of September alone.


Fresh Options Idea:
SPY Weekly $301-302.50 Calls*

*Never trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an advanced level trader with access to disposable funds!
