Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MCD Options & More


Baidu, Inc. BIDU – Update

On Friday morning, we had targeted the BIDU Weekly $250-255 Calls in the wake of the company’s quarterly earnings report, and while we didn’t see all the contracts in that range heat up, there was some very nice activity and a chance for a daily profit in the $250 Calls.

Those ran from a low of .46 and impressively hit a high of 2.97 for potential intraday gains of up to 546% which ended up working out to be one of our top plays of the week.

Fresh Options Idea:
McDonalds Corp. MCD
Weekly $160-165 Calls



Aqua Metals, Inc. AQMS

We most recently tagged AQMS on April 4th, and after just a slight period of consolidation the stock found support and began a recovery which has covered a good amount ground this month.

From a low of 2.11 AQMS has traded as high as 3.56, a 69% increase in a matter of just a few weeks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MULE is Kicking & More

MuleSoft, Inc. MULE

We try to include mentions of all sorts of stocks from nano-caps all the way up to the big boards, and there can be no doubt we’ve found success with plays across the entire spectrum.  Generally, when we catch a stock for a large gain over a short time period, it trades for pennies a share or less. However MULE is yet another example of a higher priced stock that we recently put on our radar, making a series of big jumps in just over a month.

When we initially tagged this play back on February 16th, it was trading as low as 28.51. After a very bullish month was followed up by another big spike this week, MULE has kicked its way all the way up to 42.40, an impressive increase of 49%

The move was catalyzed by yesterday’s announcement that the company would be acquired in full by Salesforce. Generally you don’t get a sustained push from a buyout, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the stock didn’t go much higher, but we’ll keep an eye peeled just in case.


Aytu BioScience, Inc. AYTU

We’re going to place AYTU on watch this morning as a potential bottom bounce play. The stock produced abnormally high volume yesterday along with a marginal spike in PPS.

As you can see on the chart below, AYTU saw a precipitous decline in February, and has been oversold all month long, yet still maintaining support in the low to mid .40′s. Indicators suggest the possibility of a recovery on the horizon, so we”ll go ahead and monitor the activity here in the days ahead.


Fresh Options Idea:

General Mills Inc. GIS – General Mills has been in trouble on the chart for quite some time, and despite it already being at 3-year lows, the stock is continuing to get crushed on the heels of a disappointing earnings report. Accordingly, we’re going to be tracking the GIS 04/20 $50-45 Puts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WBA Recap & Special Alert

 Walgreens Boots-Alliance Inc. WBA

We made our interest in the WBA options chain very clear yesterday morning, stating that “in addition to exceeding expectations with their quarterly report, the stock was already looking ripe for a bottom bounce.”. As it turned out, our shrewd premarket observation made it possible for our readers to bag some truly epic gains on the day in three out of the four highlighted contracts .

Our designated targets were the WBA Weekly $69-70.50 Calls and the moves they made on the day were astonishing, including an absolutely eye-popping 78-bagger, even as the markets as a whole had the worst down-day in months!

$69 Calls – Range: .01-.79 – Max Gain: 7800%
$69.50 Calls – Range: .06-.59  – Max Gain: 883%.
$70 Calls – Range: .05-.35 – Max Gain: 600%

We’ll continue to keep an eye on these ideas as we head into the end of the week.


Twitter, Inc. TWTR

We’ve also got a frsh options idea for TWTR, after noticing a significant gap-up in the stock here in the premarket. The company Q3 earnings showed it is inching very close to profitability, which could happen as soon as next quarter, and traders are responding. TWTR is presently filling a big gap on the chart, and has the look of a play that could produce a significant dip-and-rip once the session commences.

We’re going to be looking at the TWTR Weekly $18-19.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Monday’s Movers, Bottom-Play & More

Yesterday’s Movers

B2Digital, Inc. BTDG -  One of the stocks that we were looking at from yesterday morning‘s extended watchlist was BTDG. This super-subpenny play made its move right from the opening bell, and by the time the first hour of trading had elapsed, the stock had recorded a double-bag move to the upside.

BTDG traded in a range from its low of .0004, and hit .0008- a perfectly symmetrical 100% rip. The stock closed at its dily mid-point of .0006, and with the kind of volatile price action we’ve observed, we’ll be certain to keep an eye peeled in sessions to come.

______

Novus Acquisition & Development Corp. NDEV – The other notable mention from yesterday’s report was NDEV. We noticed this one had just perked up after a sustained period of lethargic trading the day prior, and the trend continued.

The stock traded in a solid range from .30-.442, an intraday push of 47%, and perhaps most notably, closed with strength at .43 after having traded roughly two-and-a-half times its 30-day average volume. That’s sufficient to warrant further observation, thus NDEV will remain an item of interest for us.



DAVIDs TEA, Inc. DTEA

We’re going to add DTEA to the radar this morning. After a substantial gap-down and continued backslide on Friday, the stock gave a hint of a bottom-bounce to kick off the week yesterday along with a major influx of volume.

As you can see on the included snapshot, the stock is egregiously oversold and could be preparing for a more significant rebound, so we’ll want to be on the lookout for that.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recaps & More

Options Roundup

We had put a couple of options ideas in place as we closed out the trading week on Friday, and found success across the board.

Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN – It took the better part of the entire morning on Friday for things to heat up for our AMZN puts, but once they did, it sent our highlighted options contracts on one heck of a ride. Those were the AMZN Weekly $780-772.50 Puts and they allowed for profits both approaching and exceeding ten-bagger territory!

Between roughly noon and 3PM, we saw an significant move to the downside which facilitated the following enormous gains:

$780 Puts – Range: .46-4.80 – Max Gain: 943%
$777.50 Puts – Range: .28-3.32 – Max Gain: 1085%
$775 Puts – Range: .14-1.80 – Max Gain: 1185%
$772.50 Calls – Range: .08-1.03 – Max Gain: 1187%

_____

Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd RCL – The contracts we chose for the RCL chain were the RCL 11/18 $67.50-72.50 Calls. These are extended term contracts with plenty of time left until expiration, which explains why the premiums were so high, and the moves were of a lesser magnitude than AMZN. Still, for a first day, we did see some notable gain opportunities, including a double-bagger:

$67.50 Calls – Range: 5.30-7.80 – Max Gain: 47%
$70 Calls – Range: 3.30-5.80 – Max Gain: 76%
$72.50 Calls – Range: 1.70-3.85 – Max Gain: 126%


Axion Power International, Inc. AXPW

We want to circle back to this old familiar play, which up until the past couple of weeks, had been on a continuous downslide for quite some time. Due to a number of factors, we’ll be interested in tracking the stock’s progress off of its recently registered annual lows.

On Friday, the stock made a nice move and temporarily cracked the 50DMA at .0131, which will be the key area of resistance of which we’ll be watching for a sustained break. As you can see on the chart below, the stock recently woke up off of being heavily oversold for an extended period, and we’re going to want to track every step of its recovery.
