Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings and Bottom Plays

Acuity Brands, inc. AYI – Options Idea

After a lackluster Q3 report, AYI took a gut punch yesterday, but began to recover before the day was through, and appears to want to continue to course-correct today.

We are going to radar the AYI 07/19 $125-130 Calls. Even if this holiday shortened week comes to a predictably quiet close and doesn’t provide a ton of activity, we’ll still have plenty of time to get results before the 19th.


comScore, Inc. SCOR 

We’ve found what appears to be a prime bottom-watch candidate in SCOR. The stock is egregiously oversold at the present time, and has managed a couple of positive sessions this week.

The volatility potential on this stock is high. It’s not unreasonable to think that it could return to the $10 level or better over a period of several weeks or perhaps even months. We’ll designate this as a longer-term recovery play.


Extended Watchlist:
TBLT, NAK, ZIOP, FCEL, SNSS, OTLK
