Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAP Recap & More

Advance Auto Parts, Inc. AAP

One of yesterday’s two options ideas that we offered up to our readers, AAP’s daily performance was the most pronounced. The machinations of the stock allowed for notable intraday gain opportunities, on the heels of the company’s Q2 earnings call. Those gains were as follows:

$145 Calls – Range: 8.92-14.55 – Max Gain:  62%
$150 Calls – Range: 4.80-9.67 – Max Gain: 40%
$155 Calls – Range: 2.50-5.40 – Max Gain: 51%

We’ve also caught word of a large share repurchase, so despite the fact that AAP is already in blue skies, we’ll continue to monitor these ideas.



The Home Depot, Inc. HD

The other fresh idea from yesterday’s report were the HD Weekly $195 & 197.50 Calls, and those also managed to produce significant chances for profits on the day.

The $195′s traded in a range from .81-2.46, a gain of 204% while the $187.50′s ran from .39-1.28. That was good for intraday gains of 228%



Energen Corp. EGN

Another longer-term set of ideas we recently offered up, the EGN 09/21 $75 & 77.50 Calls, have also begun to produce results. The $75 Calls gone from  1.10-1.95 (+77%), and the $77.50′straded from .90-1.10 (+22%).

While those are merely marginal moves, the stock is gearing up for another bullish session, gapping up significantly here in the premarket. We expect to see the ranges on these calls extended by a significant margin today.


FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS:
Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ 
just purchased an additional $4B stake in Canopy Growth Corp. CGC,putting the beverage manufacturer effectively into the cannabis business. We will signal some calls here in both cases.For STZ, the 09/14 $220 & 222.50 Calls, and for the Canopy chain- the CGC 09/21 $30-40 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NLSN Update & More

Neilsen N.V. NLSN

One of the items of interest from our premarket report yesterday morning was a selection of options ideas, including the NLSN  09/21 $25-27 Calls. Despite being a longer-term set of ideas, with more than a month until expiration, it still paid instant single-session dividends.

$43 Calls – Range: .65-1.05 – Max Gain:  62%
$43.50 Calls – Range: .50-.70 – Max Gain: 40%
$44 Calls – Range: .33-.50 – Max Gain: 51%

The gains weren’t eye-popping but it was definitely a good start, with the NLSN chart still boasting a sizable gap to the upside which was only partially filled by yesterday’s activity. We’ll continue to monitor the situation.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Reminder

CANNABIS REMINDER

We took full advantage of the recent earnings season with a ton of great options ideas, but things are cooling down on that front for the moment. To start off this week, we’ll put our ever-continuing options search on hold for today, to bring our readers an annual reminder.

Each year as the summer season begins to wind down, we like to pull together a sizable watchlist for the cannabis space. The Autumn season has traditionally been the legal and medical marijuana industries’ most active in terms of movement on charts. The pattern has repeated itself year after year, so with the market appearing relatively quiet at the moment, now is a good time to reassert our interest in cannabis sector stocks for the coming of the fall rush.

The following is not an exhaustive list, merely a few old favorites, but we ensourage our readers to seek out and monitor any stock that is related to the field:

AGTK, CANN, NGTF, MSRT, POTN, PNTV, CNBX, OWCP


Avalon Holdings Corp. AWX

We’d also like to quickly share the performance of AWX following its inclusion in our premarket watchlist on Friday. Early on in the session, the stock ran from a low of 4.52, and went on to hit 6.79, which works out to a respectable intraday pop of 50%  That was sufficient to register as the NASDAQ’s #2 mover on the day.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Z Follow-Up & More

Zillow Group, Inc. Z

First thing’s first- we wanted to update our readers once again on the Zillow calls we made on Tuesday morning. We designated the Z Weekly $48-49 Calls as our targets and after a good first day, the stock continued its upward climb during yesterday’s session.

That move alloted for even further increases on our observed range of contracts, and pushed our two-day observed swings well into multi-bag territory:

$48 Calls – Range: 1.30-3.55 – Max Gain: 173%
$48.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.60 – Max Gain: 136%

Fresh Ideas:
YELP Weekly $43-44.50 Calls
ROKU Weekly $52-53.50 Calls


Healthmed Services, Inc HEME

It isn’t often these days that we target a subpenny OTC stock. Our long-time followers know that those were our primary focus when we started out exactly 7 years ago this past Tuesday. We did very well in that capacity for many years, despite having recently shifted focus more to fast-paced options trading.

Of any of the sectors we ever covered in the OTC space, cannabis has certainly been the most exciting, and continues to be one of our primary interests on the stock side of things to this day.

That’s why we just want to put HEME on our readers radars. Despite being listed as defunct on OTC Markets, the company recently revealed its intentions to get things back on track and enter the marijuana space.

According to its updated website, HEME is presently acquiring, leasing and licensing growers for the cultivation, production and distribution of cannabis and cannabis-related products in southern California. The project site has state Highway access, water and local transportation are convenient and accessible, and the City government has designated the project site – legal planting zoning.

We are going to keep tabs on the company’s progress toward not only developing in this new direction, but also coming current on its reporting.
