Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates, Fresh Ideas & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Update

For the third consecutive session yesterday, we were treated to exceptional intraday performances by the AAPL Weekly $114-116 Calls that we initially signaled on Tuesday.

AAPL continued to bull its way to its highest PPS levels in over two months, and managed to close above $120 on the day. As a result, the contracts we were monitoring provided the following opportunities:

$114 Calls – Daily Range:  4.34-6.70 – Max Gain: 54%
$115 Calls – Daily Range: 3.47-5.70 – Max Gain: 64%
$116 Calls – Daily Range: 2.53-4.70 – Max Gain: 86%

While those gains were respectable, sharp traders will have seen greater opportunities in rolling up their strike prices to stay closer to the money as AAPL continued to run. The stock gapped up to crack the $121-mark in the premarket this morning, and so we’ll definitely be looking for quick-strike chances* in the range of the Weekly $119-121 Calls.

*Just remember, contracts with weekly expiration represent exploding offers. Extreme caution is required for trading these options on Friday!

LinkedIn Corp. LNKD

Speaking of fresh options ideas, LNKD is soaring in the premarket this morning, so we’re going to be tracking a range of contracts in this chain as well. We had tremendous success with LNKD calls this summer, and given the current conditions, we believe history could repeat itself today.

We’ll be prospecting a wide range in the LNKD Weekly $235-245 Calls as the session commences, as it seems that things could get very interesting(…and don’t forget the warning above about trading weeklies on a Friday!).

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Update

We want to start things off this morning by going over the huge gains that were made possible by the AAPL options idea we formulated this week. Yesterday we reminded our readers of our intent to stay hot on the trail of the AAPL Weekly $114-116 Calls as the stock was soaring in the premarket off of its Q2 earnings-beat.

It wouldn’t have mattered which strike price traders chose within our target range, because each set recorded a heck of an intraday run:

$114 Calls – Daily Range: 2.70-5.30 – Max Gain: 96%
$115 Calls – Daily Range: 1.96-4.38 – Max Gain: 123%
$116 Calls – Daily Range: 1.33-3.45 – Max Gain: 159%

Congratulations are in order for any of our followers who were able to pare some impressive profits out of those excellent intraday performances.

EQ Labs, Inc. EQLB

EQLB is a play that we want to reiterate our interest in this morning. Our regular readers might recall that we caught this play exactly six weeks ago on the heels of an announced partnership with world-famous music producer, Timbaland.

It ran 77% on the first day we mentioned it, and this month alone, it has traded up from a swing-low of .0026 to .0071; a 173% increase.

There hadn’t been any word of the development of the Timbaland partnership since the initial PR, until yesterday when we noticed a potentially telling Instagram post by the company. They posted the following message along with a photo of Timbaland:

We’ll keep a close watch for any official updates that may be forthcoming pertaining to that story-line. We also like the look of the present chart conditions:

Pazoo, Inc. PZOO – News Update

We also want to pass along the PR update that came down the line from PZOO this morning. We’ve closely followed the company’s ongoing expansion into the cannabis testing space, and  today’s announcement regarding a new partnership adds another link to the chain:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PLKD Update & More

Pleasant Kids, Inc. PLKD

PLKD has been a subject of discussion for us over the course of this month. Within the past couple of weeks we’ve tracked it as it went on a run from .06-.14, a 133% swing in a matter of five sessions. Following that, the stock pulled back to find support at .08, and subsequently rebounded back to .11 yesterday. That’s an added spike of 37% and our signal to continue monitoring PLKD’s progress moving forward.

In addition to providing action on the chart sufficient to net sizable gains for smart traders, PLKD has had a number of positive press releases come down the line recently. This includes an acquisition agreement set to take effect at the end of November, and a recent share reduction of significant magnitude.

As usual, we’ll look to see the stock continue to register higher lows as it has over the past three sessions. We’ve also pointed to a few bullish indicators on the chart that suggest near-term upside potential:

Options Update

We saw a modest move out of the gate from AAPL yesterday, which led the AAPL Weekly $114-116 Calls we were tracking to provide the chance to profit on the early dip-and-rip as we suspected.

The company’s post-market earnings report beat expectations, and as a result, AAPL is gapping up significantly in premarket trading today. This could facilitate further intraday surges in the contracts we specified, so we’ll remain hot on their trail as we head through midweek.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BHRT Recap & More

BioHeart, Inc. BHRT

Amid our recent and ongoing success with options trading ideas, we’ve also managed to signal a few winners in the subpenny arena, and BHRT is one to add to that list following yesterday’s session.

We tagged BHRT for observation and immediately witnessed a textbook dip-and-rip pattern which led to an impressive intraday swing. The stock bounced off of support early at .0009, and subsequently rallied to a daily high of .0016, representing a 78% move.

We caught BHRT at an opportune moment, with the stock having just found a new 52-week low on Friday. We’re going to want to keep monitoring this stock for signs of an extended rebound; registering higher highs, and higher lows as the week progresses. There are a number of ripening indicators on the chart, as can plainly be seen below:

Fresh Options Ideas

We’re going to tracking some new weekly options contracts after taking a look at the landscape of the market this morning. We’re right in the thick of another earnings season, and as we’ve mentioned on several occasions, that is the perfect time for quick-strike options trading.

Trends have a tendency to be more predictable during times such as these; earnings-beat gap-ups can and have led us to some serious dip-and-rip winners in the past.  As usual, we provide the range of contracts wherein we believe the greatest action will occur for each play:

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – BABA is gapping up in premarket trading in concurrence with an Q2 earnings beat today. In response, we’re going to signal BABA Weekly $77-81 Calls, and as we just mentioned, be looking out for a classic dip-and-rip.

Apple. Inc. AAPL –  AAPL has an established history of running into earnings, which are incidentally slated to hit the wires after today’s closing bell. Yesterday, the stock pulled back and we’re already seeing a moderate gap-up this morning. We’re going to radar the AAPL Weekly $114-116 Calls for possible day-trade opportunities, as AAPL may run into the close in anticipation of earnings like we’ve seen so many times before!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MSFT, ILST Updates & More

Microsoft Corp. MSFT

Our closing thoughts on Friday were pertaining to a range of weekly options calls that we found attractive, namely the MSFT Weekly $51-53.50 Calls. They turned out to be our top picks of the day, with every single contract set making multiple intraday swings that facilitated chances for impressive daily profits.

We often comment about the elevated volatility in weekly options at the end of a given week, and Friday was no different. The single-session opportunities that were afforded to us by the MSFT chain were mind-bending:

$51 Calls – 1st Swing: .88-2.62 (198%) – 2nd Swing: 1.76-3.05 (74%)

$51.50 Calls – 1st Swing: 1.25-2.10 (68%) – 2nd Swing: 1.48-2.03 (37%)

$52 Calls – 1st Swing: .14-1.68 (1100%) – 2nd Swing: .99-1.98 (100%) – Low to High: 1300% 

$52.50 Calls – 1st Swing: .45-1.17 (160%) – 2nd Swing: .50-1.45 (190%)

$53 Calls – 1st Swing: .30-.82 (173%) – 2nd Swing: .17-.99 (482%)

$53.50 Calls – 1st Swing: .16-.49 (206%) – 2nd Swing: .04-.50 (1150%)

Congratulations to any of our readers who jumped into the action for what ultimately turned out to be an excellent bunch of opportunities to close out the week!

International Star, Inc. ILST

If you didn’t catch our alert on ILST a week ago today, you ended up missing a heck of an intraweek swing out of this super-subpenny play.

We observed a low of .0004 early in the week, and that gave way to a pleasing run to a high of .0009 on Friday. It worked out to a move of 125% and it occurred during a week where the stock was setting records for all-time high volume. We’d say our timing in catching this one was extremely fortunate.

We’ll need to see ILST hold support at or above .0006 on any pullbacks in order to remain interested.
