Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Wrap-Up, Bottom Play

Options Wrap Up

After a fantastic week of options trading, which followed several weeks of the same, we continued to roll the dice with a couple of fresh day-trading ideas on Friday, and unsurprisingly got some great results from those as well.

We had the SPY Weekly $282-283 Calls on the radar and all three returned excellent multi-bag gain opportunities for the session:

$282 Calls – Range: .62-1.64 – Max Gain: 165%
$282.50 Calls – Range: .29-1.16  – Max Gain: 300%
$283 Calls – Range: .10-.67 – Max Gain: 570%

We also had included a fresh idea with the TSLA Weekly $345 Calls after absolutely crushing it with the $320-330′s earlier in the week, and those also performed nicely on the day. They traded up from a low of 2.07 all the way to 10.19, marking a whopping 392% single-session rip!


Tyson Foods Inc. TSN – Fresh Idea

We are going to kick things off this week by formulating both a short and longer-term set of options ideas for TSN. The company has just released a mixed earnings call, beating on Q3 profits, but missing on sales. Despite that, it is the technical setup of the chart that has us most intrigued.

Having been beaten back for close to two months to extreme-oversold levels, the stock began to show signs of a bottom bounce toward the end of the week, with a gap to fill on the chart from the mid-$60 to mid-$63 range.

For the possibility of quick strike chances, we’re going to monitor the TSN Weekly $58-59.50 Calls, and for a potential extended term recovery play, we’ll also keep watch over the TSN 08/31 $62-63 Calls.


Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Run Continues

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Final Update

We’re coming back around to mention AAPL for the third consecutive time today, with the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls we selected on Wednesday morning continuing to pile on bigtime gains.

Practically every options idea we’ve looked at in this incredible bull market has been working out in our favor, and this old favorite has been no different. Here are the updated figures for the total possible gains which could have been attained as a result of our report on Wednesday:

$195 Calls – Range: 3.20-13.25 – Max Gain: 314%
$197.50 Calls – Range: 1.71-10.80 – Max Gain: 531%
$200 Calls – Range: .81-8.40 – Max Gain: 937%


More Options Success

Our premarket report yesterday also contained two fresh sets of options ideas for Tesla, inc. TSLA with the Weekly $320-330 Calls, as well as the Wayfair Inc. W Weekly $110-115 Calls.  Both ideas produced fantastic chances for huge single session multi-bag profits:

TSLA Weekly $320-330 Calls,
$320 Calls – Range: 7.20-30 – Max Gain: 316%
$322.50 Calls – Range: 6-28.27 – Max Gain: 371%
$325 Calls – Range: 5.25-25.26 – Max Gain: 381%
$327.50 Calls – Range: 4.20-22.25 – Max Gain: 430%
$330 Calls – Range: 3.10-20 – Max Gain: 563%

We’ll be looking at the possibility of rolling up to the TSLA Weekly $345 & $350 Calls for today, but please, do not trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are expert trader with disposable funds. While the rewards can be great, the risks are of equal gravity!
____

W Weekly $110-115 Calls
$110 Calls – Range: 3.10-11.10 – Max Gain: 258%
$115 Calls – Range: 1.76-5.30 – Max Gain: 201%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup

Apple, Inc. AAPL

We handed our readers Apple on a silver platter yesterday, suggesting they look to the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls for opportunities, and those who heeded that suggestion were met with extremely pleasant results.

Our success with options trading ideas has become so commonplace that we hardly need to mention that all three of the ideas contained in our targeted range produced excellent intraday moves.

The single session gains available to sharp traders were as follows:

$195 Calls – Range: 3.20-6.90 – Max Gain: 116%
$197.50 Calls – Range: 1.71-4.55 – Max Gain: 157%
$200 Calls – Range: .81-2.51 – Max Gain: 210%


SodaStream International, Inc. SODA

Apple wasn’t the only options chain we successfully called yesterday morning. SODA was the other highlighted play for which we signaled our interest, and it ultimately ended up as the NASDAQ’s #3 gainer of the session. We zeroed in on the SODA Weekly $99-105 Calls and two out of the three produced multi-bag moves on the day. 

The $100 Calls traded in a range from 4.42-10.30, marking a gain of 133%  The $105′s fared even better, shooting up 200% from 2.00 to 6.00.


Tesla, inc. TSLA

For a fresh idea, we’re going to be looking at TSLA, which, despite a miss on Q2 earnings, is still gapping up here in the premarket. That’s enough to get get our attention here in the short term regardless of where the stock is ultimately headed .

We’ll look at the TSLA Weekly $320-330 Calls as we head into week’s end, for potential quick strike trading opportunities on a dip-and-rip.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Options & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL

Our more seasoned readers will remember a time when we almost exclusively talked about microcaps trading on the OTC, but a few years ago, we decided to go to where the real money was, and have since focused primarily on quick-strike options trading opportunities. It was with AAPL that we got our sea legs in options trading, and it has been a heck of a ride since.

We’re coming back to AAPL once again to use the spike in trading activity associated with the company’s Q3 earnings beat to try to score some nice gains. The stock is gapping up into blue skies here in the premarket after rising to record high valuation, just a stone’s throw from a TRILLION dollar market cap!

We’re going to be monitoring the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls to try to score some nice chances this midweek.


SodaStream International, Inc. SODA

Speaking of earnings beats, SodaStream just reported on its Q2 figures, and is shining in the premarket on the heels of a strong showing and boosted guidance for the future.

We’ll look to take advantage of this situation as well, by earmarking the SODA Weekly $99-105 Calls for observation this morning.


Whirlpool Corp WHR

On Friday, we selected a range of options in the Whirlpool chain, the 08/03 $129-131 Calls, and we wanted to swing back around this morning in order to go over the success we had with those plays.
.
In just a few days time, each set of contracts has made considerable multi-bag moves, which have been as follows:

$129 Calls – Range: .96-2.05 – Max Gain: 114%
$130 Calls – Range: .68-2.20 – Max Gain: 224%
$131 Calls – Range: .55-1.27 – Max Gain: 131%

Judging by the activity thus far, we’re going to want to continue to stay on top of these calls for the remainder of the week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SSLJ New Highs & More

SSLJ.com Ltd. SSLJ

We included a reminder on SSLJ in yesterday’s premarket report, the second time since our initial alert on the Tuesday before last wherein we expressed our interest in the stock as a bottom play.

The stock subsequently experienced a low of .64 and while it had already made significant headway as of yesterday morning, the session brought even more impressive gains our way.

We mentioned it could move to fill its gap on the chart and it did so. The stock traded in a daily range from 1.72 to a new high of 3.00. That works out to an intraday run of 74% and represented a total increase of 369% from our observed low in just two weeks!


Advanced Micro Devices AMD

We recently had great success with some AMD options plays, a stock that we often use for that purpose, but didn’t talk much about the real story, which is the stock’s incredible rise this spring and summer.

We talk about AMD quite often in fact, with one of those alerts coming several months ago on April 26th. Since then, the stock has essentially done very little other than bull its way to impressive new highs. Subsequent to that April alert, it was trading at lows of 10.61 and it never looked back. The stock reached new highs of 20.18, a 90% increase. It’s rare to see such a big stock make a double but AMD has certainly gotten close over the past few months of activity.
