Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday Wrap-Up

Wrapping Up a Solid Week

Once again, we’ll turn in our cards for the week with multiple multi-bag winners. Our quick-strike options ideas are second to none. We’d invite anyone who disputes that to point us to a better options newsletter!

We’ve been running with FDX and MU since Wednesday morning’s premarket report. We had already seen gains in the 500% range on FDX and the 100-200% range on MU that day.

We continued to monitor the FDX calls, as well as roll up to a higher strike price on MU for yesterday’s session. Once again we met with great success. So, first thing this morning, we want to take a look at the updated figures of the total possible gains on these plays.

FedEx Corp. FDX
 Weekly $157.50-160 Calls.

$157.50 Calls – Range: .59-6.60 – Max Gain: 1017%
$160 Calls – Range: .35-4.40 – Max Gain: 1157%
_____

Micron Technology, Inc. MU  Weekly $37 Calls.

$37 Calls – Range: .31-1.39 – Max Gain: 348%

We’re going to roll up on MU once again to stay close to the action, and will be tracking the $38-38.50 Calls as we close out out another great week for options trading. Just remember, never trade options with a weekly expiration on Friday unless you’re an expert level trader with access to disposable funds!

STZ Weekly $197.50-202.50 Calls
SPY Weekly $292 Calls


J.Jill, Inc. JILL

We also wanted to provide a quick update on a stock we tagged for observation a couple of weeks back on the 12th. JILL had been building a solid base and moving up slowly since then, up until yesterday when it really kicked things into another gear.

We observed a low of 1.54 subsequent to our initial alert, and yesterday’s new high came in at 2.29, marking an upswing of 49%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Post-Earnings Options Plays

Energizer Holdings, Inc. ENR 

We’ve been seeking out prime bottom play opportunities this week, and to continue that trend, we’ve run across Energizer this morning on the heels of the stock registering a new annual low yesterday.

In conjunction with the fact that Deutsche Bank just upgraded ENR from a Hold to a Buy rating with a price target of $52/share (trading in the $37-range yesterday), along with indicators that the stock is heavily oversold, and we are confident in calling this one a prime bottom play candidate as well.


Fresh Options Plays 

We also have a pair of fresh earnings-related options ideas to pass along this morning. Post-earnings plays are typically our miost successful, and we’ve got a couple of good hunches about the following contracts as we cruise through this midweek. 

FedEx Corp. FDX -  Already in a good spot on the chart for a possible rebound leading into today’s session with a strong double-bottom setup, we’re looking to FDX options as FedEx’s Q4 results yielded a profits and earnings beat. As a result, we’re going to be tracking the FDX Weekly $157.50-60 Calls.

Micron Technology, Inc. MU - We are also looking at MU, which reported in the post-market yesterday as well, posting a beat on Q3 earnings, and bolstered guidance for sales of computer memory chips. Like the above mentioned play, MU is giving off a heavy multi-bottom signal. In this case we are interested in monitoring the MU Weekly $35-36.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Bottom-Plays

Seres Therapeutics, Inc. MCRB 

It was a pretty slow start to the week yesterday with the markets gapping up early, but falling into decline throughout the session. That didn’t stop the one fresh idea we did have in our morning report from posting a respectable performance on the day.

We referred to MCRB as a ‘prime bottom play’ and while it didn’t exactly explode out of the gate, what we did see was certainly a step in the right direction. From a low of 2.63, the stock ran a modest but solid 16% to a high of 3.06. More importantly, it preserved its momentum by holding the three-dollar mark into the close. A good first day by any stretch of the imagination.

We’ll continue to monitor our longer term options idea that we included, the MCRB 07/19 $2.50 Calls which stand to do well in coming weeks if the stock can continue to maintain the current trend. Yesterday’s session was the fourth consecutive day that the stock has recorded higher lows, and we’ll want to see more of that moving forward.


Verastem Inc. VSTM 

Speaking of bottom plays, we’ve got another one to add to our radars this morning in VSTM. This stock has lost a ton of value over the past year, and recently began to show signs of a rebound. We like it for its technical setup and volatility potential. We will remain interested in tracking VSTM for as long as it can maintain support at 1.72 or better.

VSTM is considered by some to be a speculative buyout play as well. Just this week the company has reported positive early stage data on Copiktra, the company’s leukemia treatment under development. Definitely an interesting story to follow.

____

Celestica Inc. CLS

Perhaps even more attractive as a bottom play than the above mentioned stock, we’ve got CLS, which just began to show signs of life after recording a new annual low at the beginning of this month.

If the stock can manage to break its 50DMA at 7.09, there’s a real chance that it could produce significant gains, filling the gap to the topside on the chart. Interesting to naote about CLS as well, is that the company’s EPS has grown by nearly 90% over the past year. When taking that into consideration, its current valuation doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Prime Bottom Play

CarMax, Inc. KMX – Recap 

To open things up this week, we’re going to go over the performance of a fresh options ideas from Friday morning’s premarket report. We were tracking the  KMX Weekly $85-87.50 Calls and we met with some very good fortune in the form of multi-bag, single session gain opportunities.

All four of the contract sets we watching provided enormous intraday chances, which wasn’t surprising, given the huge help we had last week from a surge in the markets. A strong earnings report from KMX did the rest, and we finished out the week with these superb gains: 

$85 Calls – Range: .48-2.55 – Max Gain: 431%
$86 Calls – Range: .27-1.73 – Max Gain: 541%
$87 Calls – Range: .15-1.09 – Max Gain: 627%
$87.50 Calls – Range: .10-.76 – Max Gain: 660%

Fresh Ideas: 


Seres Therapeutics, Inc. MCRB 

We’re currently very interested in MCRB for multiple reasons. The stock recently touched down on a new annual low, and at the same time, a company director purchased a huge block of shares which amounted to a significant percentage of the overall market cap.

Since then the stock has been trending off of that bottom, with just the sort of volatility potential we’re always after. In addition to the stock itself being a solid candidate for a recovery play, we will also place the MCRB 07/19 $2.50 Calls on watch.
