Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Week for Options

Morgan Stanley MS – Recap

Earlier in the week we highlighted a pair of options calls in the Morgan Stanley chain following the company’s Q3 earnings report on Tuesday, in which it reported a solid beat of Wall Street expectations on profits.

As a result, the MS Weekly $43.50 & $44 Calls that we signaled in our report produced some very nice chances for traders to lock in multi-bag profits.

The $43.50 Calls, from their low of 1.32 reached 4.20, for an intraweek gain of 218% The $44 Calls low came in at .85, and it went on to log a high of 3.65. That worked out to an overall increase of 329%

Paypal, Inc. PYPL - The first of our earnings related options ideas to close out the week is going to be Paypal, whose stock saw early gains on the heels of the company’s report which entailed a big boost from the company’s Venmo offshoot. Revenue streams have been growing as Paypal has launched several initiatives within the platform. We are going to be looking at the PYPL Weekly $81-83 Calls* as we close out the trading week.

The Procter & Gamble Co. PG – We’re also looking at PG, which reported on its earnings this morning, and posted it’s biggest growth in sales for the last half a decade. Our idea for this particular play will be the PG Weekly $82-84.50 Calls*

*Please do not attempt to trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you are an advanced level trader with disposable funds. It’s an extreme risk/reward proposition!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More New Highs on YGYI

Youngevity International Inc. YGYI

We’re coming right back to YGYI for the second straight morning, after the stock once again pushed to new 7-year highs on some of the biggest volume the stock has ever seen.

We slated this play for observation twelve days ago, and its performance across that span has been rather impressive. Our observed low on YGYI of 6.00 has quickly given way to the stock’s new high of 16.20, which represents a gain of 170% in a time frame of less than two weeks.

The stock closed very near to its high of day, and the record volume continues, so with that kind of momentum, we will undoubtedly continue to track its movements as it continues to pierce its way into blue skies.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL Options & More

Delta Airlines Inc. DAL

Despite a tumultuous day for the markets yesterday, and mostly everything taking on a bearish characteristic, we’re still going to go bullish on DAL in the wake of the company’s quarterly earnings report released this morning.

Despite rising fuel costs, the company revealed that profits soared well past expectations as a result of increased demand leading to higher ticket prices.

As we always try to do when a company posts a solid beat, we’ll designate a range of options to place on watch, in this case the DAL Weekly $49.50-52 Calls. We’ll go ahead and track these into the end of the week. DAL stock was already oversold, getting hammered for weeks, so this report may be just the catalyst needed to effect an impressive reversal.



SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We had great success with the SPY earlier this week, and we want to come back to it this morning in the wake of the markets getting crushed yesterday. With the amount of uncertainty and potential volatility out there, we want to set ourselves up to have an active idea no matter which way the winds blow.

Should the SPY fall below $276, we will target the SPY Weekly $277 & $276 Puts. If it pulls above $276 we will focus on the $276 and $277 Calls, so either way, we should be able to quickly identify the proper course once trading commences. .
