Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup

GW Pharmaceuticals plc GWPH
.
We said we’d be looking for action in the  in the GWPH Weekly $125 & $130 Calls yesterday after we learned the company had reacquired the rights to develop Sativex, a 1:1 THC/CBD extract blend oral spray product.

The result was a run from the stock that brought it to its highest PPS since March, and that move facilitated some very nice activity in our designated contracts. The $125 Calls saw a move from  3.00-5.90 for gains of up to 97%, while the $130′s tore up the chart, running a whopping 900% from .15-1.50!

There’s also a reasonable chance the solid trend could continue today, so we’ll be sure to stay on the lookout for that.


Fresh Options Ideas

Under Armour Inc. UAA – First up for new options ideas this morning we’ve got UAA, which is building a heck of chart setup in the wake of the revelation earlier this week that the company’s third-largest stakeholder had increased their position.

We’re going to set up shop with a short and extended term idea, homing in on the UAA Weekly $13.50-14.50 Calls, in addition to the 01/12 $14.50-15.50 Calls, in the event that its recent run of bullish activity is set to continue over a longer time frame.
_________

Adobe Systems, Inc. ADBE – In the case of ADBE, the company posted beats on both revs and earnings for Q4, and we’re always looking for a good post-earnings options trade. We’ll look to the ADBE Weekly $175-180 Calls.

Eagle Bancorp, Inc. EGBN

After realizing that EGBN had been the target of dishonest short-seller tactics, we tagged some options ideas on the morning of December 5th – the EGBN 12/15 $50-60 Calls. The stock had been absolutely hammered in the previous session.

We saw some really nice moves from those contracts when EGBN immediately began to rebound ranging from 73-200% The stock dealt with some resistance over the later portion of last week and into this Monday, but managed to continue its recovery and go on to set another new high yesterday.

That produced another opportunity in a couple of the contracts we highlighted, with the $55 Calls trading from 1.20-4.40 for a 267% swing, and the $60′s exploding for a 600% rip from .10 to .70.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Highs for RIOT & More


AT&T, Inc. ATT

We signaled a range of  ATT calls (Nov 9th) to track on a extended term basis, the ATT 01/19 $34-36 Calls, and those contracts have increased considerably, with a bullish trend from T persisting over the past few weeks.

The stock surged to its highest price per share since early October during yesterday’s session, which caused impressive new highs in our targeted contracts. The range of potential gains so far are as follows:

$34 Calls – Range: .91-4.18 – Max Gain: 359%
$35 Calls – Range: .53-3.30– Max Gain: 523%
$36 Calls – Range: 37-2.36 – Max Gain: 438%


Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

As we mentioned in yesterday morning’s premarket report, we were interested to see if RIOT could re-test and possibly breach its previous highs, even though we had already seen two significant swings.

The stock ended up behaving just as we suspected it might, gapping up to open higher than those previous marks, at 25.00, and running to a new high of 33.27 for an intraday rise of 33%, an excellent single session move for a stock in this price range.   We began tracking RIOT on November 2nd at a low of 6.33, and from there, yesterday’s peak pricing represents an upswing of 426% inside of 6 weeks!


Tenet Healthcare Corp. THC

On Monday morning, we signaled THC for observation as the stock appeared to be ripe for continuing its recent bottom-bounce. We mentioned yesterday that the stock was showing signs of a gap up and possible continued upward momentum, and we were spot on in our assessment.

From its low on Monday to yesterday’s high, THC has thus far made a move of 14% from 13.33-15.26, and while that has not facilitated big gains in the range of options we initially selected (01/26 $13.50-14.50 Calls), we expect to see that change if the stock can maintain its recent rebound over a more sustained period of time,.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom Plays & More

Syros Pharmaceutical, Inc. SYRS

First up on the docket for this morning is a potential bottom play that we’re going to want to put on our radars over the coming sessions. SYRS reported some less-than-ideal clinical data, and the stock got absolutely crushed yesterday.

We don’t ignore news developments, but we are constantly looking for over-abused stocks to pounce on during their recoveries, and one definitely seems in order for this play at the present juncture. The filling of the gap that was left on the chart by the sell-off would mean roughly 50% in gains from the current PPS.


Tenet Healthcare Corp. THC

We made it known yesterday morning that we had an interest in tracking the THC 01/26 $13.50-14.50 Calls as the stock appeared to be ripe for continuing its recent bottom-bounce. THC did just that, but our tracked options didn’t heat up too much yet, posting gains of just 15-24% on the day. That could be set to change today, as the stock is showing signs of a gap up and possible continued upward momentum this morning.

We’ll be sure to make monitoring the ongoing activity here one of our top priorities for the rest of this week. This may only be the beginning of THC’s rebound off of its recently established new annual lows.


Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

We began tracking RIOT on November 2nd at a low of 6.33, mentioning it three times over the course of the following month. The stock saw a massive run to 21.76, for a serious move of 244%

That was followed up by a pullback to a low of 12.01 on 11/30, and since then the stock has been making a push for those highs once again, yesterday reaching 23.67. That’s an added swing of 97% on top of the previous run we witnessed, and it leaves us interested to see if the stock can re-test and possibly breach the highs off of the previous run.

Potential Bottom-Plays

We’ve unearthed a couple of stocks that are trading just above their recent relative lows, and wanted to relegate them to a bottom watchlist this morning. We’re getting strong multiple-bottom signals from each one, and will formulate a couple of corresponding options ideas. 

Tenet Healthcare Corp. THC - This stock strung together three sessions of higher lows and higher highs to close out last week, with a ton of room to the upside. We’re going to be signaling our interest in tracking the THC 01/26 $13.50-14.50 Calls as the stock attempts to continue the beginnings of this uptrend.

Key Tronic Corp. KTCC - This play has been attempting a recovery of its own, after a sizable gap-down hit it this past Monday, as pictured on the chart snapshot below. We’ll be waiting in the wings with an options idea in this case as well, with the KTCC 02/16 $5 and $7.50 Calls.
