Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JWN Recap & More

Nordstrom Inc JWN

The first thing we want to talk about this morning is the performance of JWN on Friday following its inclusion in our premarket report. We zeroed in on the JWN Weekly $52.50-57.50 Calls for some end of the week daytrading opportunities, and came up with some really nice movers.

Strong multibag moves were there for the taking all across the board, helped out by the company’s Q2 revenues which easily surpassed expectations on the Street with the aid of a boost in sales.

$52.50 Calls
– Range: 3.00-6.60 – Max Gain:  120%
$55 Calls – Range: 1.12-4.20 – Max Gain: 275%
$57.50 Calls – Range: .19-1.69 – Max Gain: 789%

Canopy Growth Corp. CGC

For another update, we want to track back to our idea from Wednesday morning’s premarket report, the CGC 09/21 $30-40 Calls.

The stock achieved new highs on Friday, and thus our highlighted options calls continued to pile on more gains as well. Here’s the ranges and total possible profits on those contracts so far:

$30 Calls – Range: 1.76-4.50 – Max Gain: 156%
$35 Calls – Range: .56-2.00 – Max Gain: 257%
$40 Calls – Range: .16-.72 – Max Gain: 350%

Tyson Foods Inc. TSN – Review

A couple of weeks ago on August 6th, we signaled a range of TSN calls as the stock was just coming off of a bottom in the mid-$50 range. Those were the TSN 08/31 $62-63 Calls, and after a solid stretch of upward momentum, the stock reached new highs on Friday at $62.60.

That move has allowed for big gain chances in two out of three of our designated calls. The $63′s haven’t quite begun to see action just yet, but we’ve seen great moves from the $62′s, which ran from .30-.95 (+217%) and the $62.50′s which traded up from .22 to .61 (+177%)

Fresh Idea:
SPY 08/20 $284.50-286 Calls 



Seven Stars Cloud Group Inc SSC

We slated SSC for observation on July 24th and the stock traded as low as 1.95 following that mention. This morning we are seeing an abnormal gap up, with the stock trading as high as 5.30 in the premarket.

So, in addition to the 172% move we have witnessed thus far, we will be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip to possibly see even more gains out of this play.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EGN Update & More

Energen Corp. EGN

A longer-term set of ideas we recently formulated were the EGN 09/21 $75 & 77.50 Calls. from our report on Monday morning. The contracts had shown marginal increases that day, but since then have added considerably to the highs we’ve observed.

We witnessed the following intraweek moves in these solid contracts, and with plenty of time left before expiration, even more gains are not out of the question.

The $75 Calls have thus far gone from  1.10-3.80 (+245%), while the $77.50′s have traded from .93-2.50 (+169%).

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CGC Review & More

Canopy Growth Corp. CGC

One of yesterday morning’s fresh options ideas, the CGC 09/21 $30-40 Calls turned in a very nice intraday performance. Despite the stock posting a red candle on the day, the activity still provided us with some excellent chances to score a quick profit.

It stemmed from beverage giant Constellation Brands increasing its stake in Canopy by a whopping $4B. Here are the gains that were on the table as a result, making this another fantastic call on our part.

$30 Calls – Range: 1.76-3.81 – Max Gain:  62%
$35 Calls – Range: .56-1.50 – Max Gain: 40%
$40 Calls – Range: .16-.56 – Max Gain: 51%


Walmart, Inc. WMT

For today, some of the most promising options plays are likely to be in the WMT chain. The company posted a bigger Q2 sales boost than it has in a full decade. To correlate with the spike in attention and activity we are going to signal a range of calls to monitor into the end of the week.

We’ll be tracking the WMT Weekly $97-101 Calls, which should score some good opportunities on a likely dip-and-rip scenario this morning.

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.
