Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DPW Recap & More

Digital Power Corp. DPW

We began to track DPW in Monday’s premarket report, and with the help of a key Bitcoin related PR, the stock has performed quite well since then. We suggested that Monday’s bullish activity could be followed up with more of the same in yesterday’s report, and that’s certainly what occurred.

DPW traded in a daily range from an early low of 2.70, all the way up to an afternoon high of 4.27, marking an intraday burst of 58%   As measured from our observed low of 2.15 on Monday, that high represented a two-day swing of 97%

We will once again track this play very closely, with Bitcoin streaking to new all time highs yet again, touching $12,798.78 shortly after 8AM Eastern this morning. The company just released plans to launch a line of Bitcoin mining hardware, and anything related related to the space should continue to be a hot ticket item amid the current crypto-craze.



American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO

We’ve come to rely on going after big options trading opportunities, especially after a company releases its earnings. Despite having fallen short of Q3 expectations for profits and revenue, AEO posted solid same store sales growth, and issued promising guidance.

As a result, the stock has continued its recent bullish run, and we’re going to want to signal the AEO Weekly $16.50-17.50 Calls for observation over the remainder of the week.


Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. TTNP

We’re going to place TTNP on watch this morning as a potential bottom play. One look at the chart snapshot below clearly shows that the stock is currently exhibiting a strong double bottom signal. We can also see the nearly 100% move it recorded in recent months. We’ll be looking for similar activity in coming sessions.

More Ideas -
We’ll keep the post-earnings retail options train rolling today with two fresh sets of ideas using the Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF and Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR chains. We’ll have the ANF Weekly $10 & $11 Calls, and the DLTR Weekly $78-82 Calls on watch as we head into week’s end.


Rimrock Gold Corp . RMRK

We included RMRK in yesterday morning’s premarket report, after noticing some abnormal activity building up in the previous session.

It was a good thing that we did, because yesterday’s performance from the stock was explosive. It traded in a range from .0006 to .0025 on the day, for a fantastic single-session rip of 316%

The move occurred on volume of more than 1.8 billion shares traded; an all-time high for RMRK.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Retail Focus

Retail Focus

Macy’s, Inc. M - With the holiday season fast approaching, we’ll be on the lookout for retail plays with good upside potential, and Macy’s could be a good fit in that regard.

You can take a look at the chart below and see that the stock has just begun to show signs of a rebound after getting absolutely hammered earlier this month. Indicators suggest that the stock is rather oversold.

We’re going to radar a set of longer-term contracts, the M 11/17 $23 Calls, which should see a nice move if the stock can indeed regain the ground it’s lost over the past few weeks. There’s also a gap on the chart to the $28 area, the filling of which would propel those contracts to huge gains.


______

JC Penney Co. Inc. JCP - Another retailer we’ve talked about many times in the past, particularly leading up to and during the holidays, is JCP.

Similar to the above mentioned play, the stock took a punishing hit to its PPS over the past few weeks, and has shown the beginnings of a rebound. It has an even larger gap on the chart, and a chance to fill it even quicker.

The stock itself could end up being a good recovery play, but we’ll also want to put a couple sets of options contracts on watch as well, with the JCP 11/17 $4 and 4.50 Calls.


______

More Retail Ideas – Also in the retail sector, and each with premarket earnings beats, are American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO and Express, Inc. EXPR. We’re going to radar the AEO Weekly $12 & 12.50 Calls, and the EXPR 09/15 $6 & $7 Calls.


Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. ZN

We also wanted to quickly update readers on the performance of ZN, after it was a topic of discussion in yesterday’s premarket report. While the stock didn’t break out by any means, it did trade from a low of 2.95 to a high of 3.42 for a modest 16% intraday move.

It did, however, manage to close just two cents below its high of day, so we’ll have it on continued watch this midweek, looking for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Idea & More

MyDx, Inc. MYDX

Trading in general was greatly subdued on Wednesday in comparison to Tuesday’s fast start to the short week, but MYDX was one of a couple significant movers among our mentions in yesterday’s report.

The stock traded in a range from .0036 up to .0064, which works out to an intraday push of 78% and it came on well over twice the monthly average volume.

Prior to this week, the stock had been consolidating heavily for quite a long period of time, and has now strung together two really solid sessions after registering a new 52-low on Tuesday morning. We’ll continue to monitor this play for the recording of higher highs and higher lows; another strong performance today would qualify it for full-on multi-day runner status.


420 Property Management, Inc. FTPM

Also coming off of yesterday’s report to have a respectable session was FTPM. This is one of the cannabis related plays that we tracked over huge gains back in October as the pre-election marijuana hype was reaching a fever pitch. With the sector seeing a comparatively mild yet still strong resurgence this week, FTPM is among those stocks reaping the short-term benefits.

We witnessed it run from a low of .0011 to .0019 yesterday on more than twice the average volume, which works out to an intraday pop of 72%  Like the aforementioned play, we’ll want to see the stock logging higher highs and higher lows for the remainder of the week.


American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO

It’s been roughly a month since we dabbled in any AEO options, and we wanted to formulate an idea this morning granted the fact that the AEO chart is presently at a bottom and beginning to look ripe for a recovery.

Accordingly, we’d like to signal a range of extended-term options contracts in the AEO chain to put on watch in the days and weeks ahead. Unlike last month, when we went bearish with some puts after a mixed earnings release, this time we’re going the other way with the AEO 01/27 $15.50-16.50 Calls. With just under a month until expiration, it gives the stock plenty of time to make its move, so we’ll be watching closely.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings-Related Options & More

American Eagle Outfitters, Inc.  AEO – Options Idea

Earnings-related options ideas are among some of our favorite plays to track, and that’s what we’ve got here with AEO this morning. American Eagle had a mixed earnings release, satisfying on profit expectations while falling short of on both sales and outlook. Granted that the stock was already looking a bit top-heavy, we’re feeling bearish about this play for the short-term.

To coincide with that instinct, we’re going to signal our interest in a range of puts in the AEO options chain. For possible quick-strike trades, we’re going to be looking at the AEO Weekly $19.50-16.50 Puts.

_____

Splunk, Inc. SPLK – We’ve also got a bullish options idea to bring to the table with SPLK, and this one is earnings-related as well.

The company posted a strong quarterly report yesterday and is surging as a result. In this case we’re going to highlight and track the SPLK Weekly $60.50-62 Calls.



Petrobras Argentina S.A.  PZE

While we’ve mentioned Petrobras countless times in our reports in the form of PBR, this marks the first occasion upon which we’re focusing on its Argentinian counterpart. The stock has been getting absolutely hammered of late, and with an OPEC deal seemingly close at hand, oil has begun to run. That’s why we’re going to be tracking this one over an extended time period from this point forward.

Should the production cut go off without a hitch, it sets PZE (as well as other oil stocks) up to regain a good bit of the ground lost in past weeks, so we’ll want to put this one on bottom-watch in the days and weeks ahead.
