Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup

We had good fortune with our fresh options call yesterday, so today we’re going to be recapping the total possible gains on those plays, as well as unearthing a couple of fresh ideas to add to the mix as we close out this trading week.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Recap - Our inkling on DAL yesterday morning was to go bearish after a disappointing earnings call for the airline, with the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts. We were not disappointed with our decision to do so, as those DAL puts went on to log the following double and multi-bag intraday moves for us before lunch hour was over:

$55.50 Puts – Range: .76-1.60 – Max Gain: 110%
$55 Puts – Range: .48-1.05 – Max Gain: 119%
$54.50 Puts – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 160%
$54 Puts – Range: .13-.36 – Max Gain: 177%
$53.50 Calls – Range: .03-.17 – Max Gain: 466%
______

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD

Speaking of bearish options ideas, we want to enter another fresh set into the log this morning in AMD. This stock trades very cyclically, and from a technical perspective, looks as if it could continue to lose ground after a reversal this week. We’re going to place the AMD 07/21 $14-13 Puts on watch into next week in the event that our impression of this play is correct.
______

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. BJRI

Lastly on the options front, we are going to signal a range of extended-term calls on BJRI, which has a pretty attractive bottom setup on the chart at the moment. To take advantage of a potential sustained rebound, we’re going to be monitoring the BJRI 08/18 $35 & 40 Calls.
_____

Bonus Idea: NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls


Diana Containerships. Inc. DCIX

DCIX went into a full-on nose dive recently after it was announced that the company would be taking out roughly an $85M loan to settle a monster pile of debt, and the investment community did not take the news well.

The stock has subsequently fallen to new all-time lows, and that’s where we come in. We’re always looking for stocks like this to put on bottom-watch. Being egregiously oversold, DCIX may yet have a bit further to fall, but we’ll want to be ready for a reversal at any time. The resulting bounce-back could be considerable.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BMXI Recap & More

Brookmount Explorations Inc. BMXI

Having written our daily newsletters for such a long time, occasionally we run back across a stock that we haven’t seen in quite some time, and that was the case with BMXI. Before yesterday’s signal on it, we hadn’t mentioned it since May of 2012 back when it was regularly trading in the subpenny range.

It found its way to our radar screens and into our premarket report yesterday morning on word of a promotion (Disclosure: We were not involved in the deal), and what followed was one of the biggest breakouts the stock has ever had. From a low of .0831 it soared to a new all-time high of .1279 . That’s an intraday gain of 54% which came on enormous volume.


Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Options Idea

Our regular followers know that we’re always on the lookout to take advantage of the hype-fueled moves that stocks tend to make following an earnings report, using their options chains. Delta whiffed on profits this quarter, falling well short of expectations on the Street, and despite issuing solid guidance for Q3, we want to signal a range of short-term puts to watch into the end of the week.

DAL stock was already at a top, and in a price range where profit-takers could be a factor as well. For that reason, we are going to radar the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts.


OncBioMune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. OBMP

OBMP had an update that it issued this morning on its mid-stage cancer treatment (>>View PR), but our interest is really being drawn to this play for technical reasons.

As you can see below, the stock recently established a new annual low, followed by a rebound off of that low, and now it is making its way back down to find support. We will be interested in this as a potential rebound play in the event that the stock maintains support at or above a nickel. We’re presently looking at an impending bearish cross on the MACD so we’ll see if the stock can hang in there without losing more than a penny off of its current PPS.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Day for TEUM & More

Pareteum, Inc. TEUM

After tagging TEUM in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist, the stock went on to become the top story of the day for us. From the opening bell until shortly prior to lunch hour, the stock make a pretty impressive move from a low of .78 to a high of 1.73. That went down as an intraday push of 122% and it occurred on an incredible 200X the monthly average volume.

TEUM held more than half of its daily advance into the close, and with that kind of price action and liquidity, we’re defeintely going to want to continue to keep a watch over this play. The activity was catalyzed, at least in part, to the company’s declaration that it expects to beat Wall Street’s estimates in its upcoming release of quarterly financials.


Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. OPXA

It was a week ago today, just as we were returning from the 4th of July break, that we were commenting on the activity of OPXA, which we had tracked over some pretty nice gains at the beginning of the holiday week.

After a couple of sessions consolidating off of those highs, OPXA geared up for another round this week, rebounding off of support at .633, and re-launching itself to a new high of 1.09 yesterday.  That’s a 72% swing on the rebound, which gives OPXA just the kind of volatility we’re always on the lookout for. It will remain on our radars for the time being.


CableClix (USA), Inc. CCLX

We’re going to put CCLX on watch as a news play this morning, after the company announced the launch of its online TV service aimed at ‘cord-cutters’. It’s a trendy space with a good story, and the stock itself qualifies as a potential bottom play. We’ll certainly want to keep a watch over CCLX moving forward.

CableClix (USA), Inc. (OTCPK:CCLX) is pioneering online TV evolution by designing the first ‘lean-back experience’ for online viewing. Lean-back – continuous delivery of TV broadcast, common for cable TV but not yet for online viewing – gives audiences more viewing time, delivered as uninterrupted play of highly personalized content.

Lean-back play solves the problem of audiences losing hours of viewing time just browsing through menus deciding what to watch next. CableClix’s research – with audiences as well as executives from major online platforms, studios and multi-channel networks – revealed a consistent issue across the video content landscape: usability.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AVEO Recap & More

AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AVEO

Swinging back around to discuss AVEO is our top order of business this morning after the stock soared to new highs yesterday. We placed this stock on watch on June 23rd, subsequently mentioning it several times.

On the day of our initial alert, AVEO traded for as little as 1.05 per share, and after multiple weeks in a near-contnual uptrend, the gains have been fantastic. Yesterday AVEO reached new four year highs of 3.19, marking an overall swing of 204%

Volume over the same period has been greatly heightened, and yesterday’s close at 3.15 was a strong one, so even though AVEO has had momentum-mover status for several sessions, we’re going to want to continue to watch it closely.


Inotek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ITEK

We’re always looking for a good bottom-bouncer, which is why we want to take note of ITEK this morning after disappointing study results on the company’s eye drug sent shares tumbling yesterday.

As we point out on the chart snapshot below, the stock has been beaten back into oversold territory, leaving a big gap on the chart. We’ll place it on watch for the filling of that gap, which from present pricing would spell gains of up to 60%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (SVXY) – Recap

We had some positive jobs numbers which posted on Friday, and to go along with the direction of the market activity we were observing, we highlighted a range of weekly options contracts in the SVXY ETF.

Our targets were the SVXY Weekly $152-154 Calls and we did see some pretty good movement from plays in that range, which made appreciable moves on the day. Those total possible gains were as follows:

$152 Calls – Range: 2.34-3.91 – Max Gain: 67%
$153 Calls – Range: 1.86-3.54 – Max Gain: 90%
$153.50 Calls – Range: 1.61-2.28 – Max Gain: 42%
$154 Calls – Range:1.15-2.71 – Max Gain: 136%


ShiftPixy, Inc. PIXY

The Friday before last, we signaled newly-IPO’d PIXY for observation on its first trading day ever, and it also performed admirably during last week’s short trading week.

After starting at a price of 6.30 on Friday (06/30), PIXY began to run, and this past Friday it hit a high of 10.50. That’s a solid 66% upswing, which is quite impressive for a first week of trading.

This morning, we’ve seen our observed range on PIXY increase even further to 78% with the stock managing a premarket high of 11.20.

We’ll be anxious to pick up where we left off and continue to track this new stock as we head into a new trading week. Each new high it sets is a new all-time high, so there’s no telling where this ride will let off. As we mentioned last week, we’ll just continue to monitor the stock, looking for higher base levels of support to be established as we go forward.


Inpixion INPX

We’re always looking for a good bottom play, and we have one with some potential in INPX, which tumbled last week after the company announced a hefty $6M public offering.

The offering was priced at 1.05/share and the stock is currently trading in the high-.60′s. We feel a return to at least the offering price would not be implausible.

Stocks coming off of recently-established 52-week lows have historically been good to us, so we want to place INPX on watch for a potential recovery.
