Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Update & More


Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Update

From yesterday morning’s report, we had designated a pair of Apple options contracts,
AAPL 06/01 $167.50 & $170 Calls, and as it turned out, we got a fairly decent performance out of those over the course of the day.

The $167.50′s traded up from 4.36 to hit 6.10, marking a 40% increase, and the $170′s also fared well, trading in a range from 3.30-5.00, for a bullish move of 52%

Those contracts are going to be pushed deep into the money with the gap up occurring on the heels of yesterday’s post-market earnings beat. We’ll be looking to lock in profits at the open in expectation of a dip-and-rip pattern, and if we get what we’re looking for, we will also test the waters with some other calls, the AAPL Weekly $172.50 & $175 Calls.

Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. SGSI

We were just commenting yesterday morning on how we tagged SGSI on April 25th,  only to see it run from .0055 that morning, and go on to rise over 100% as it ran to a high of .012.

The stock continued to put forth opportunities yesterday, trading up in a daily range from .0082 to a new high of .0129. That works out to an intraday pop of 57% and extended our overall observed move in a week’s time to an impressive 135%

Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

Our most recent mention of EBIO came just a week ago on April 23rd, and we felt it was time this morning to come back to this play and comment on the excellent performance we’ve seen from it since then.

Our observed low on the stock was 1.83 on the 23rd, and it hasn’t looked back, reaching a high of 2.86, which represents a respectable upswing of 56%


Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. SGSI

Last but not least, we have SGSI, which we slated for observation on April 25th, and from thoe low we observed that day of .0055, we’ve seen a solid double-bagger from the stock as it has run to a high of .012, for a 118% rise.

SGSI reached that high yesterday on over 10X the average volume, in addition to there being quite a bit of From-4 activity in the company’s disclosure feed. We’ll continue to keep our eye on it.

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%

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.
