Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review

The Boeing Co. BA

Yesterday morning’s premarket report featured a range of calls in the Boeing options chain, after the company’s quarterly report yielded a number of positive factors. To attempt to take advantage of the activity, we signaled the BA Weekly $352.50-360 Calls.

While the stock didn’t have an eye-popping session by any means, the moves it did make facilitated some good intraday opportunities early on, and later in the day, some even better ones. Below are the best moves made by each of our tracked calls on the day:

$352.50 Calls – Range: 2.87-5.00 – Max Gain: 74%
$355 Calls – Range: 1.90-3.94 – Max Gain: 107%
$357.50 Calls – Range: 3.00-5.52 – Max Gain: 84%
$360 Calls – Range:  .67-1.93 – Max Gain: 188%


Mastercard, Inc. MA

To keep the options train rolling, we’re going to signal some calls in Mastercard, which, oddly enough, is a stock we’ve never mentioned in our reports.

It has been building a steady run up the chart for essentially the past two years, and is currently pushing its way further into blue skies following a strong quarterly showing.

We’re sure MA has long-term potential, but we’re more interested in taking advantage of the immediate situation, so we want to signal the MA Weekly $170-175 Calls for observation.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Highs for RIOT & More


AT&T, Inc. ATT

We signaled a range of  ATT calls (Nov 9th) to track on a extended term basis, the ATT 01/19 $34-36 Calls, and those contracts have increased considerably, with a bullish trend from T persisting over the past few weeks.

The stock surged to its highest price per share since early October during yesterday’s session, which caused impressive new highs in our targeted contracts. The range of potential gains so far are as follows:

$34 Calls – Range: .91-4.18 – Max Gain: 359%
$35 Calls – Range: .53-3.30– Max Gain: 523%
$36 Calls – Range: 37-2.36 – Max Gain: 438%


Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

As we mentioned in yesterday morning’s premarket report, we were interested to see if RIOT could re-test and possibly breach its previous highs, even though we had already seen two significant swings.

The stock ended up behaving just as we suspected it might, gapping up to open higher than those previous marks, at 25.00, and running to a new high of 33.27 for an intraday rise of 33%, an excellent single session move for a stock in this price range.   We began tracking RIOT on November 2nd at a low of 6.33, and from there, yesterday’s peak pricing represents an upswing of 426% inside of 6 weeks!


Tenet Healthcare Corp. THC

On Monday morning, we signaled THC for observation as the stock appeared to be ripe for continuing its recent bottom-bounce. We mentioned yesterday that the stock was showing signs of a gap up and possible continued upward momentum, and we were spot on in our assessment.

From its low on Monday to yesterday’s high, THC has thus far made a move of 14% from 13.33-15.26, and while that has not facilitated big gains in the range of options we initially selected (01/26 $13.50-14.50 Calls), we expect to see that change if the stock can maintain its recent rebound over a more sustained period of time,.

Options Review

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – AAPL beat on earnings as well as kicking off sales on the iPhone X, and two out of three of the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* we signaled for possible daytrades ended up recording some nice moves on the day.

Our first order of business to kick off the fresh week is to recap those moves followed by another set of winners we chose on Friday.

The AAPL $170 Calls ran from 1.63-3.82 for potential gains of up to 135%, while the , $172.50s made an even nicer move from .31 to 1.36 for an intraday rip of 339%

Arista Networks, Inc. ANET  - The set of ideas we formulated for ANET on Friday were the 11/17 $195-210 Calls, and all three sets of contracts in that range provided traders with the chance at multi-bag intraday gains.

$195 Calls – Range: 3.15-9.30 – Max Gain: 195%
$200 Calls – Range: 2.40-5.80 – Max Gain: 142%
$210 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.11 – Max Gain: 111%

Fresh Idea:

For a new potential play, we’re looking at Pandora Media, Inc. P which took a gut punch on Friday, falling to its lowest prices since early this summer. The last time the stock was this oversold, it followed it up with a run from 6.75 to to 10.00.

We’re going to go out a couple of months on the expiration and track the  P 01/19 $6 and $7 Calls so we have plenty of time to see Pandora make the rebound we’re after.


Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. KERX

We’re going to put KERX on watch after noticing multiple ripe indicators this morning. The stock bounced of a recent bottom and close with strength at the 200DMA on Friday. With the MACD gearing up for a bullish cross and the RSI just about to crack the 50-line, we’ll be interested to track the activity in KERX in coming sessions.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Idea

At the end of last week, we signaled some calls in AAPL, one of which ran over 3500% on Friday. Following the company’s earnings beat this week, we’ve got another set of options ideas to track as AAPL has streaked to new annual highs.

With its premarket peak coming in at the $175-range, we’re going to want to monitor the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* for potential daytrades.

In addition to a healthy earnings beat, Apple the iPhoneX is going on sale. These are just the types of conditions that could allow it to continue to streak into blue skies.

*Please note that trading weekly options on a Friday is incredibly risky, and should only ever be attempted by expert traders with disposable funds. If that doesn’t describe you, stay away!  


Arista Networks, Inc. ANET

We would also like to look at ANET this morning, which took a gut punch during yesterday’s session. The sharp decline cause the PPS to fall below the channel of a continuous uptrend that had, until yesterday had persisted for most of the past year.

On the chance that it was just a momentary setback, we’re going to highlight some options contracts here as well that could work quite nicely if ANET can recover. We’ll have our eye on the ANET 11/17 $195-210 Calls.

Twitter, Inc. TWTR

We had a really good idea for the TWTR options chain on Thursday morning with the Weekly $18-19.50 Calls. Not only did they make multi-bag gains on Thursday, but with another bullish session Friday, our total possible profits were extended by a significant margin.

We’ve listed the overall moves below, in addition to the intraday gains that were available on Friday alone.

$18 Calls – Overall Range: 1.00-3.95 – 2-Day Gain: 295% – Friday Intraday: 76%

Friday’s fresh options ideas also both worked like a charm, bringing a fitting end to what was an amazing week for our options trading ideas across the board:

The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. BONT

We tagged BONT on Thursday morning, at which time we observed a low of .68 in the stock. After a solid first session, we reiterated the tag in Friday’s report and the stock came out of the starting gate like a bolt. It traded all the way up to 1.15 before tapering back, but not before completing a two-day swing of 69% for us.

The stock’s presently hovering around a dollar, so we’ll be watching as the new trading week kicks off this morning to see if BONT can manage to string together a third session of higher highs and higher lows.
