Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Update & More

 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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NEWC News Alert & More


New Columbia Resources, Inc NEWC

We’re circling back around to NEWC this morning on the heels of an untraded upon press release that just hit the wires. It pertains to the expansion of the cannabis side of the NEWC business, which will look to expand its hemp growing operations to zones that were previously out of the question prior to the recent ceasefire which has essentially ended 5 decades of internal hostilities in the South American nation.

BARRANQUILLA, COLOMBIA–(Marketwired – Jul 27, 2016) – New Colombia Resources, Inc. ( OTC PINK : NEWC ), a Colombian company listed in the U.S., is pleased to announce that Sannabis SAS, their Medical Marijuana joint venture, will work with CORPROPAZ to develop hemp fields in 5 different areas of Colombia for a pilot program to create new hemp industries in post conflict zones.

We’ve also prepared a video highlighting the various aspects of the NEWC Chart, whiich we suggest you check out now!

More Updates:

Sophiris Bio, Inc. SPHS

We’ve been tracking SPHS all week so far, and have been met with a good opportunity for some quick profits. Subsequent to our mention in Monday’s report, we’d witness a low of 4.92 in the stock, followed by a 22% run to 5.98. Then yesterday, it held support at 5.88 as it came down slightly before jumping up to a new high of 8.55, which also happens to be the stock’s new 52-week high.

It marked an intraday run of 45% and a two-day upswing of 74% over our observed low from Monday.

______

Weyland Tech, Inc. WEYL

We tagged this play on Friday (Low of 2.10), and then again in yesterday’s newsletter, and the performance we’ve seen thus far has been respectable.

Yesterday WEYL traded up from a daily low of 2.17 to a high of 2.80, representing a daily run of 29%, and an overall increase of 33% from Friday’s low.
______

Exact Sciences Corp. EXAS

We also had EXAS in yesterday’s report, and the stock made a modest move of 20% from a low of 14.57-17.47. Not the magnitude of gains that we typically hope for, but considering the price range, a 20% intraday pop is nothing to sneeze at.



Texas Instruments, Inc. TXN – Options Update

We signaled a range of calls in the TXN options chain yesterday morning to correspond with the company’s earnings beat, and the chances it churned out were very nice. We highlighted the TXN Weekly $70-72 Calls and every set contained within provided a shot to make gains of 500% or more! It also yielded our third and fourth options ideas of the past week that have yielded gains of over 1000%

The potential single-session profits were as follows:

$70 Calls – Range: .10-1.96 – Max Gain: 1860%
$70.50 Calls – Range: .32-2.00 – Max Gain: 525%
$71 Calls – Range: .15-1.30 – Max Gain: 767%
$71.50 Calls – Range: .11-1.00 – Max Gain: 810%
$72 Calls – Range: .06-.70 – Max Gain: 1067%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Calls & More

Yesterday’s Winning Options Ideas

We signaled our interest in a range of contracts from three separate options chains yesterday morning, and unsurprisingly, the potential for quick-strike single-session gains was present in all three.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Our AAPL idea was definitely the most solid of the day, with our highlighted Weekly $98-99 Calls each making an appreciable intraday spike:

$98 Calls – Trading Range: .78-1.92 – Max Gain: 146%
$98.50 Calls – Trading Range: .55-1.51 – Max Gain: 175%
$99 Calls– Trading Range: .36-1.15 – Max Gain: 219%

The extended-term play we targeted also made a big move. The AAPL 07/17 $101 Calls traded in a range from .79-1.37, for a nice 73% rip. We’ll want to continue tracking this set of contracts in sessions to come, with plenty of time before their expiration.

_____

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) – Next up were the SPY Weekly $208-210 Calls, which we were pretty sure would produce some decent action based purely on the overall market sentiment we were observing leading up to our submission of the idea. Our assumption proved to be spot-on, and we observed some excellent moves during the session:

$208 Calls – Trading Range: 1.13-1.97 – Max Gain: 74%
$208.50 Calls – Trading Range: .81-1.56 – Max Gain: 93%
$209 Calls– Trading Range: .55-1.19 – Max Gain: 116%
$209.50 Calls– Trading Range: .33-.86 – Max Gain: 161%
$210 Calls– Trading Range: .20-.60 – Max Gain: 200%

_____

Computer Sciences Corp. CSC – As a bonus idea we called attention to the CSC 06/17 $44-48 Calls and while a couple of the contracts contained in that range failed to trade any notable volume, respectable gains were still there for the taking in the other three:

$45 Calls– Trading Range: 3.20-5.05 – Max Gain: 58%
$47 Calls– Trading Range: 1.65-2.75 – Max Gain: 66%
$48 Calls– Trading Range: 1.25-3.48 – Max Gain: 178%

This is why we love options trading. Out of thirteen sets of contracts we slated for tracking, having eleven produce the opportunity for big gains, and seven of those produce chances at gains of more than 100% is a perfect illustration of why we have not focused solely upon stocks for years now.

More Fresh Options Ideas: We’d like to follow up that recap with some new interests this morning, each with untraded-upon earnings beats to consider. We will be following the activity in Williams & Sonoma WSM Weekly $53-55 Calls as well as Dollar Tree, Inc DLTR Weekly $83-86 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MXSG, ABRW Recaps, Options & More

Mexus Gold US  MXSG

MXSG was the first of a pair of extended watchlist plays from yesterday’s morning report to produce an appreciable intraday move that could’ve been used for healthy single-session gains.

From its opening price of .045 the stock spent the entire morning on a steady uptrend that carried it to a high of .0699 shortly after 12pm. That was good for a daily profit of up to 55%  We next observed a dip-and-rip pattern in afternoon trading wherein the stock came down to find support at .0481 before launching back to the closing PPS of .0615; an added swing of 28%

Those moves came on more than quadruple the 30-day average trading volume and with a strong close, we’ll be sure to leave MXSG on our track-list in coming sessions.

We actually called this play back on February 5th at which time the stock was trading at  .0016. Yesterday’s high represented an unreal 3744% increase in roughly three-and-a-half months over that low!


American Brewing Co. Inc.  ABRW

The other significant runner that showed itself yesterday was ABRW. This was one that was also good for a quick rip right from the opening bell.

We witnessed an immediate spike from .98 up to 1.51, which represents a rip of 54% While the stock did trade mostly sideways for the remainder of the session, it managed to close at 1.35, maintaining well over half of its daily advance. That qualifies this play for continued observation as well.


Fresh Options Ideas

For the first time this week, we’re going to submit a couple of fresh plays on the options trading front.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) – The SPY has been a go-to for us when we want a chance to leverage overall market sentiment to our advantage. With strong performance from the markets as a whole, as well as cracking its 50DMA yesterday for the first time in several sessions, our highlighted range here is going to be SPY Weekly $208-210 Calls.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – It has been quite some time since we formulated any options ideas for AAPL, but it is one that has produced winners for us on a multitude of occasions in the past. The stock has been rebounding and showing strength over the past couple of sessions. Couple that with, as we just said, an overall bullishness in the general tone of the markets at large, and it makes AAPL an attractive target for us today, and into the near future. We’re going to zero in on AAPL Weekly $98-99 Calls for possible quick-strike opportunities, as well as AAPL 07/17 $101 Calls for a more of an extended-term idea.

Bonus Idea: CSC 06/17 $44-48 Calls
