Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Winning Options & More

BIG WINNING OPTIONS

We attempted to keep our recent trend of earnings related options success rolling yesterday morning, and not only did we do so, but we actually exceeded our recent success with not one but two separate ideas that gained at least 1400% for yesterday alone!

United Parcel Service, Inc. UPS  - UPS was the first of two fresh ideas that we formulated. We were looking at the UPS Weekly $104-107 Calls after the company’s own earnings report, and each of the contracts in our designated range produced enormous intraday gain opportunities.

$104 Calls – Range: 1.00-4.00 – Max Gain: 300%
$105 Calls – Range: .42-3.10 – Max Gain: 638%
$106 Calls
 – Range: .20-2.34 – Max Gain: 1070%
$107 Calls
 – Range: .10-1.55 – Max Gain: 1450%

Mastercard, Inc. MA

The other idea from yesterday’s report also involved a stand-out from the earnings calendar. We targeted the MA Weekly $207.50-217.50 Calls and there were some notable chances there as well.

Once again the potential single session gains were absolutely stunning, including our second big time fourteen bagger of the day!

$207.50 Calls – Range: 3.36-5.50 – Max Gain: 64%
$210 Calls – Range: 1.61-3.00 – Max Gain: 86%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL, SPY Winners & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Recap

We submitted two separate options trading ideas in yesterday morning’s premarket report, the first of which being the AAPL Weekly $160-162.50 Calls. It’s beeen quite some time since we played with the AAPL chain, but it is the stock that originally brought us into the fold of options day and swing trading that we’ve adopted as one of our main functions.

It came as no surprise when the Fed announced no interest rate hike yesterday that the markets responded bullishly and allowed for some very nice multi-bag moves on our designated targets.

$160 Calls – Range: 2.14-6.32 – Max Gain: 195%
$162.50 Calls – Range: 1.05-4.19 – Max Gain: 299%

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Recap 

Our second set of options ideas from yesterday were the SPY Weekly $264-265.50 Calls, and of course, those also fared well with the SPY being an excellent market analog, and another well that we revisit on a regular basis for short term options plays.

The gains on our highlighted contracts were even more impressive in this case, with each and every strike point returning potential gains ranging from 343-598% in a single session.

$264 Calls – Range: 1.07-4.74 – Max Gain: 343%
$264.50 Calls – Range: .82-4.03 – Max Gain: 385%
$265 Calls – Range: .59-3.50 – Max Gain: 493%
$265.50 Calls – Range: .43-3.00 – Max Gain: 598%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MMM Update & More

Fresh for yesterday morning’s report, we decided to highlight some MMM calls on the heels of the company’s earnings report, so we put the MMM Weekly $195-202.50 Calls on the radar.

TrovaGene, Inc. TROV – Review

We last mentioned TROV on December 18th, and at the time the stock was trading down to an annual low of .503. Since then, we’ve seen a slow and steady recovery, which was kicked into a higher gear yesterday following news of Trovagene and PoC Capital entering an agreement to fund the development of Onvansertib in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer.

The stock ended up hitting .73, marking a 45% rise since we mentioned it. We will want to continue monitoring TROV for further advances from this point forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CAT Recap & More

Caterpillar, Inc. CAT – Recap

Yesterday, just as we were going over some of our good calls from Friday’s session, we took a look at Caterpillar’s premarket performance on the heels of its disappointing quarterly release, and formulated a fresh idea on the bearish side of the fence.

We targeted the CAT Weekly $132-128 Puts. As it happens, our solid options calls persisted into this week, because CAT took a hit, and anyone in those Puts could have been the beneficiary of some significant gains on the day.

$132 Puts – Range: 5.60-8.75 – Max Gain: 56%
$131 Puts – Range: 5.40-8.01 – Max Gain: 48%
$130 Puts – Range: 4.15-7.19 – Max Gain: 73%
$129 Puts – Range: 3.60-6.35 – Max Gain: 76%
$128 Puts – Range: 3.20-5.59 – Max Gain: 75%

3M, Co. beat on profits and sales for its 4th quarter 2018 release, and is our preferred fresh target this morning despite lowered 2019 guidance. We’re going to track the MMM Weekly $195-202.50 Calls today.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SBUX Success & More

Starbucks Corp. SBUX - Recap

We formulated some options ideas for Friday morning’s premarket report, and among them were the SBUX Weekly $66-67.50 Calls. Continuing a trend that we carried throughout the week, we once again struck upon multi-bag gains off of an earnings related play. This type of trade has become one of our go-to moves for this very good reason. We urge any skeptics to rifle through our blog and check our record on this. We believe our success rate is unparalleled.

$66 Calls – Range:.65-1.65 – Max Gain: 154%
$66.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.35 – Max Gain: 238%
$67 Calls – Range: .22-.80 – Max Gain: 264%
$67.50 Calls – Range: .10-.49 – Max Gain: 390%
_____

We also had the WDC Weekly $43.50-45 Calls in Friday’s report, and despite the fact that only the $43.50′s ended up being in play, the potential gains they afforded traders were exceptional. They traded up from a low of .03 all the way up to .26- a move of 767% on the day.


Caterpillar, Inc. CAT

We’ll once again look to a premarket earnings release to provide us with the impetus for a fresh idea this morning. Caterpillar missed on profits and issued unimpressive guidance, as the company reported disappointingly low demand, specifically in the Chinese market.

We are going to take a bearish view on this for the near-term, and put the CAT Weekly $132-128 Puts on watch to kick off the fresh trading week.
