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%

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.

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.

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.
