Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Updates

FutureLand Corp. FUTL

After already showing us a multi-bag swing from our initial alert on Friday to new highs on Monday, FUTL put up another solid performance yesterday. The stock traded in an intraday range from .0024 in the morning, and edged it way up all day to hit a new high of .0037 shortly before 2PM. That works out to a 54% push on the day, accompanied by roughly six times the monthly average volume.  .

From our observed low of .0012 on Friday, the stock has now managed a three-session swing amounting to 308% and will hold our interest as long as it continues to register higher base levels of support.


Apple, Inc. AAPL  – Options Recap

We figured to take advantage for the hype surrounding Apple for its big iPhone 8/X event, and there was enough price action and volatility throughout the day so as to present two separate opportunities for intraday swing trades.

We were looking at the AAPL Weekly $160 & $162.50 Calls, each of which exhibited the same pattern of an early run, followed by a dip-and-rip for a secondary move in the afternoon.

The $160′s first ran from 2.44-4.58 (+88%), and then from 1.07-1.98 (+85%), while the $162.50′s traded from 1.29-2.77 (+115%) initially, followed by a later move from .45-.80 (+78%). All in all, some nice activity for our first AAPL calls in quite some time.


 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL

Drawing us to CBRL this morning is a solid setup on the chart with the stock having recently reversed off of a bottom, in conjuction with a premarket earnings beat.  This is just the sort of scenario we’re always scanning for, and in this instance, we’re going to formulate both a shorter and longer-term options idea.

We’re going to place the CBRL Weekly $150 & 151.50 Calls as well as the 10/20 $155 Calls on watch in the days and week ahead.


Honorable Mentions:

Forterra, Inc. FRTA – After tagging FRTA in Friday’s premarket report, we’ve seen a pretty nice uptrend from the stock. It’s traded up from 3.66 to 5.25, a move of 43% We’ll want to continue to monitor its activity as we head through midweek.

Quotient Ltd. QTNT - We had QTNT in yesterday’s watchlist, and want to continue to track it after it made a similar move.  Also from a low of 3.66, QTNT saw a subsequent high of 5.14, which comes out to an intraday pop of 40%

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – Options Idea

If you root through the seven year newsletter history archived at our website, BlueHorseshoeStocks.com, you would find that we’ve discussed AAPL more times than most stocks, even though we haven’t mentioned it much in recent times.

In fact, AAPL’s was the first go-to options chain that we focused on when we began including options trading ideas a few years ago. This morning, we’re coming back to this old favorite with a fresh idea to coincide with the current Apple hype.

The company is rolling out the new iPhone today, among other things, and iPhone announcements have historically provided some good ammunition for options traders. Today, we’re going to slate the AAPL Weekly $160 & $162.50 Calls for observation in forthcoming sessions as AAPL’s event is expected to drive up activity not only in its own stocks, but likely other tech stocks as well.


FutureLand Corp. FUTL

On Friday morning, we included FUTL in our watchlist, and the stock has made a solid two-swing for us. From Friday’s low of .0012 the stock set a new high of .0026 to kick off the week yesterday, which works out to an overall jump of 117% Yesterday’s big push came on volume of more than three times the monthly average.

We would also include a note of caution in terms of long term interest in this stock. The company dropped the news that it had entered into a joint venture with Greenleaf Holdings  that would “deliver solar technology to the cannabis industry”. Yet here it is, two months later, and there have been no further details given. We tend to be wary of companies that don’t keep a steady line of communication to shareholders.

That being said, we have seen some really nice movement on the chart as we mentioned above, so we’ll continue to keep an eye on FUTL.

Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. LL – Recap
Although LL did gap up a lot higher than expected to start the session, and larger gains would have been available at higher strike prices closer to the money, but most of our listed targets, the LL Weekly $27.50-29.50 Calls, still managed to see some solid intraday moves.

Those potential gains, including a double-bagger by the $28′s, were as follows:

$27.50 Calls – Range: 3.00-5.50 – Max Gain: 83%
$28 Calls – Range: 2.30-5.00 – Max Gain: 117%
$28.50 Calls – Range: 3.36-4.27 – Max Gain: 27%
$29 Calls – Range: 2.00-3.70 – Max Gain: 85%


Apple, Inc. AAPL

With AAPL breaking out to new all-time highs in the premarket this morning, after a strong earnings report was more than enough to assuage any concerns about lagging iPhone sales, we’re going to want to try to get in on the fun.

AAPL is gearing up to the point that it may also drive the DOW to the 22,000 level, causing a cascading effect that should make for an interesting week for traders across the board.

As for us, we’re going to be tracking the AAPL Weekly $155-162.50 Calls on the heels of this premarket mega-push that has thus far yielded a high of $160 on the nose.


Amarin Corp plc AMRN

We also want to take note of AMRN, which recently took a fair beating on the chart, and is showing clear signs of a reversal.

We also want to signal some calls in that options chain as well as watching the stock itself. The AMRN Weekly $4 Calls will be the options we put on our radar.

 Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Recap

The current earnings season really kicked into high gear for us yesterday with our signal on AAPL. To go along with the activity we were observing in the premarket just formulated an options trading idea with the AAPL Weekly $125-127 Calls, and were ultimately met with chances for huge gains across the board.

Regardless of which strike price was chosen within that range, multi-bag gains were there for the taking:

$125 Calls – Range: 1.18-5.00 – Max Gain: 324%
$126 Calls – Range: 1.36-4.46 – Max Gain: 228%
$127 Calls – Range: .61-3.55 – Max Gain: 482%
$128 Calls – Range: .45-2.61 – Max Gain: 480%

We were obviously very pleased with our calls and the intraday opportunities they provided, and  have no problem simply walking away after such a bang-up session. That being said, we’ll go ahead and continue to track the activity over the remaining two sessions this week, just for good measure.

FRESH IDEA:

Facebook, Inc. FB - Continuing our ride on the earnings train, we’re going to signal a range of options in the FB chain on the heels of yesterday’s post-market earnings report.

Our target range today is going to be the FB Weekly $133-136 Calls.


Alkame Holdings, Inc. ALKM

Last week as we were following ALKM, mentioning it in all three reports from the 25th-27th, we witnessed a low of .0014. Yesterday, the stock broke out on mega-volume running to a high of .004 where it also closed, having traded 6X its 30-day average volume.

It worked out to a week-over-week increase of 186%  We’re also going to want to continue keeping tabs on ALKM after yesterday’s strong close.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Form-4 Alert, AAPL & More

 Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options

We used to trade AAPL options like they were going out of style, but have not actually talked about the stock in roughly six months.

This morning, on the heels of yesterday’s post-market earnings beat which featured better-than-expected iPhone sales, we’re going to be coming back to AAPL with a short-term options idea.

Having traded as high as 127.67 in the premarket, we’re going to be looking for a dip-and-rip off of this gap-up once the session commences. We’re going to be focused on the AAPL Weekly $125-127 Calls provided the expected early dip doesn’t take the stock lower than the $125-mark.


Opko Health, Inc. OPK

OPK is a familiar stock to us, albeit one that we haven’t touched upon in awhile. Recently, it has been under heavy consolidation, beginning with a large gap-down from the mid-$11 to the $10 area in late December, and persisting throughout last month.

We’ve also noticed a series of Form-4 filings which show the CEO was soaking up shares at these lows all last week and into Monday, to the tune of more than $300K worth purchased at market prices in just a few days.

We like to follow plays where directors are actively supporting their stock with confidence buys like those, so we’re going to be keeping a closer eye on OPK in sessions to come, as a rebound may be forthcoming at any time.


Tuesday’s Honorable Mentions

Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. CEGX – We placed CEGX in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist and were pleased with the stock’s modest, yet noteworthy intraday performance.

The stock traded in a range from .0026 to .0038, marking an intraday pop of 46% There was a consolidation into the close, and the stock failed to hold at least 50% of its daily advance, however, with the volatility exhibited in the past couple of sessions, we’ll definitely want to keep an eye on CEGX as we cruise through mid-week.
_____

Players Network PNTV – We were just mentioning our coverage of PNTV on Monday, and the 400%+ gains we’d observed recently. What has followed is a solid couple of sessions that has the stock well on its way to an impressive intraweek performance.

Monday’s low came in at .028, and yesterday it reached as high as .04, marking a two-day swing of 30% We’ll be looking for the stock to continue posting higher highs and higher lows today, which would solidify PNTV’s multi-day runner status.
