Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Celebrating 6 Years!

Happy Anniversary to Us!

First thing’s first- today marks the SIX YEAR anniversary of when we launched BlueHorseshoeStocks.com, our home on the web, and place to store and make available every single newsletter we’ve ever sent out during that time! We’ve unfailingly brought ideas to the table every trading day since then and want to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers who we value so much. From the most loyal who have been with us from the beginning, to every single person we picked up along the way. Cheers to all!


GoPro, Inc. GPRO

We put a set of options on watch for GPRO on Friday morning, and the potential single session gains that were there for the taking ranged from very good to downright fantastic!

Our highlighted range was the GPRO Weekly $9-10 Calls, and the intraday move that the stock itself made from a low of 9.31 up as high as 10.38, facilitated the following gain opportunities:

$9 Calls – Range: .34-1.35 – Max Gain: 297%
$9.50 Calls – Range:.13-.84 – Max Gain: 546%
$10 Calls – Range:.01-.40 – Max Gain: 3900%

As you can see, the chances for profits were exponentially greater, the higher the strike price chosen, but all around the idea turned out to be solid no matter what.


Eros International, plc EROS

We want to place EROS on watch as a possible bottom-bounce play this morning, after noticing a couple of different factors at work. The stock spent the past several sessions getting pummeled down to new 52-week lows, which in itself would be enough to catch our attention.

This morning we’re seeing a notable gap-up in the premarket, on the news that the Indian film company has entered preliminary talks with Apple to sell its entire content library. (>>View PR)

The stock was recently trading in the $14 range, and a return to that level does not seem out of the question, so we want to keep an eye on EROS as we kick off a new trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Bonanza

Post-Earnings Options Success

Yesterday morning, a focus in our premarket report on Caterpillar and McDonald’s options proved to be a big success. Both companies exceeded expectations on their delivered earnings reports, and early activity suggested that opportunity was in the air.

We signaled multiple contracts for each of them, and no matter which chain and strike price was chosen, respectable intraday profits were there for the taking. The specific ideas we highlighted were the CAT Weekly $111-114 Calls, and the MCD Weekly $152.50 &155 Calls, and their subsequent moves were as follows:

Caterpillar, Inc. CAT
$111 Calls
– Range: 2.00-3.88 – Max Gain: 94%
$112 Calls – Range: 1.36-2.88 – Max Gain: 112%
$113 Calls – Range: .85-2.15 – Max Gain: 153%
$114 Calls – Range: .58-1.44 – Max Gain: 148%

McDonald’s Corp. MCD
$152.50 Calls – Range: 4.35-7.50 – Max Gain: 72%
$155 Calls – Range: 2.15-5.00 – Max Gain: 133%

We’re seeing marginal premarket pullbacks from each stock this morning, but will continue to keep an eye on these play as we head into week’s end.

Added Options Notes: Speaking of the end of the week, we’ve got an onslaught of big name earnings releases coming tomorrow and Friday, so expect the options intensity to ramp up quickly. We;ve got some fresh ideas today as well:

We also want to begin tracking a set of contracts in Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. CMG. We’ve been watching the stock get hammered down for the better part of the last two months, and yesterday it gave the reversal signal we’ve been looking for.Others have caught on as well, with the stock surging in premarket trading this morning. We’re going to be watching the CMG 8/11 $360-370 Calls.

Additionally, we’re also noticing a cherry of a chart setup on The Hershey Co. HSY, which, when paired with a big time beat on their own Q2 earnings, should make for a decent rebound. We’ll be staying on top of the HSY 08/18 $110 & 111 Calls.


AK Steel Holding Corp. AKS

We’ll also continue to keep an eye on AKS, which we tagged in yesterday’s report. The stock did rise, if only slightly (6.35-6.88), so we’ll want to track it for a more sustained run. It’s already trading above its 20 and 50-day moving averages- next we’d like to see it make a run at the 200DMA at 7.44.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ACRX Recap & More

AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ACRX

We want to circle back around to ACRX this morning to give an update on its recent performance following our most recent tag of the stock on Monday of last week. We observed ACRX shares changing hands for as little as 2.80 that day, and the stock has been on a pretty nice run since then.

ACRX logged a solid session yesterday which allowed it to reach a new high of 3.65, marking an increase of 30% in a span of one week. More importantly, the stock closed at its new high, on heightened volume and is gapping up this morning, so we’ll definitely want to be on the lookout for further activity on this play, which is now trading at its highest PPS since October.


Post-Earnings Options Ideas

We usually have pretty good fortune when using the heightened activity that generally follows an earnings beat to find solid short term options ideas.

Today, Caterpillar and McDonald’s are the two big names making waves in the premarket, so we’ve formulated a range of interesting contracts in each chain to track as we head into midweek.

For Caterpillar, we’ll be looking at the CAT Weekly $111-114 Calls, and for McDonald’s, the MCD Weekly $152.50-155 Calls for potential quick-strike trades.



AK Steel Holding Corp. AKS

We want to put AKS on a longer-term watch after the company’s own solid beat on expectations for its Q2 earnings, as well as a recent upgrade from ‘Neutral’ to ‘Buy’ by Longbow Finance.

The potential for big tariffs on international steel being imposed in coming weeks is also present, and has been adding fuel to the furnace, so to speak, for steel stocks. A confirmation of those tariffs would certainly provide a boost that could send AKS higher.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ANY Review & More

Sphere 3D Corp. ANY

We’ve often said in the past that it’s better to be early to the party than late, and ANY is a perfect example of why. We tagged this play on Wednesday after noticing some unusual activity the previous day, and things didn’t really kick off right away. We observed a low of .15 during that session.

Yesterday is when things really moved into high gear, with the stock having an excellent day, trading in a range from .1941 on up to .29 for a 49% rip, and we’ll definitely want to keep tracking the activity into today, as the premarket high has equaled yesterday’s daily high.

From the low of .15 that we saw on Wednesday, ANY’s total upswing thus far has amounted to 93% Quite a respectable two-day jump.

_____

Vivint Solar VSLR Recap – Speaking of solid movers, we also wanted to quickly update the total observed range we’ve seen on VSLR, which reached a new high of 5.50 yesterday. From our witnessed low of 2.75 following our report on the morning of May 18th, that comes out to a nice, round 100%


AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AVEO

We want to radar AVEO in the wake of the announcement that its advanced renal cell carcinoma treatment has been recommended for EU approval by a scientific committee of the European Medicines Agency. The stock has gapped up into Blue Skies this morning as a result, with a new 52-week high of 1.28.

Concerning the chart itself, the 50DMA is rising toward the 200DMA and it appears as if a Golden Cross is imminent.  We’ll want to see AVEO hold at or above recent resistance at .89 on any dips in order to hold our interest.


Bed Bath and Beyond, Inc. BBBY – Options Idea

We’re bearish on BBBY following the company’s post-market earning miss yesterday, which has caused a breach of trend-line support to the low side. We’ll be observing the BBBY Weekly $31.50-30.50 Puts* for possible day trade opportunities.

*We don’t include mentions of weekly options contracts on a Friday without explicitly warning our readers every time. Trading weekly options at the end of the week is a hugely risky proposition that should never be attempted unless you are an expert trader!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Continued Options Tracking & More

Options Recap

To start things off today we’ll be going over the continued success of our running options ideas for the week. During market conditions like the ones we’ve been seeing, oftentimes big gains from stocks can be fewer and farther between, so it’s nice to be able to fall back on options trading. Quarterly periods where earnings reports are dropping with the highest frequency really provides a lot of great chances for quick strike profits.

Ford Motor Co. (F) - Ford has been an excellent example of a massive gainer in a short span. We’ve been tracking F Weekly $14.50 and $15 Calls since Tuesday, at which time we observed lows of .18 and .02 respectively.  After the $14.50′s made huge gains possible for us that day, the $15′s joined in yesterday and both sets went haywire.

The $14.50′s ran from a daily low of .35 to a high of .78; an intraday romp of 123%

The $15′s traded in a massive range from .05-.32, giving daytraders a shot at gains of up to 540% on the session, and giving us yet another multi-bag call in what has been a landmark week for our options-trading ideas!
___

Pfizer, Inc. PFE – We also offered suggestions for Pfizer in the same Tuesday report, the   PFE Weekly $34.50 and $35 Calls. We saw lows of .26 and .10 respectively for those contracts. Yesterday, new highs were set in both cases, with the $34.50′s making a total move of 476% to 1.50, and the $35′s ramping up to the tune of 970% as they surged as high as 1.07.

YESTERDAY’S NEW IDEAS

Following a recap of the two preceding plays in yesterday’s morning report, we presented a couple of fresh ideas and both of those ended up yielding significant opportunities as well:

Twitter, Inc. TWTR – We went bearish on TWTR and submitted our interest in the Weekly $34-32 Puts, and the chances to gain were plentiful:$34 Puts - Daily Range: 1.32-3.60 – Max Gain: 173%
$33.50 Puts - Daily Range: 1.00-2.35 – Max Gain: 135%
$33 Puts - Daily Range: .76-2.00 – Max Gain: 163%
$32.50 Puts - Daily Range: .55-1.48 – Max Gain: 169%
$32 Puts - Daily Range: .38-1.12 – Max Gain: 123%
___

Micron Technologies, Inc. MU - For MU we drew attention to Weekly $19-20.50 Calls and were met with some nice opportunities there also. $19.50 ran from .75-1.10 (+47%) and the $20 Calls traded in a range from .40-.75 (+88%).


Mobile Broadcasting Holding, Inc.  MBHC

MBHC has released a fresh PR this morning that we’ll suggest all our readers take a look at, as it pertains to the company’s ‘Whirld’ app  which, if everything remains in step with the timeline previously given by MBHC, is slated for official launch in mid-August.

Here’s a look at the current chart for MBHC on the snapshot below. The stock has managed to hold support off of the 50DMA amid recent consolidation, and we’ll be on the lookout for it to get its next leg up soon, especially with the app launch just a couple of short weeks away:

PISCATAWAY TOWNS, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / July 30, 2015 / Mobile Broadcasting Corporation, (OTC PINK: MBHC) Mobile Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) announced today the findings from their current Apple iTunes BETA test and their plans to engage and work directly with EDM VLOGGERS and DJ MIX BROADCASTERS that have a combined MONTHLY fan base of 200 MM + consumers for the upcoming global launch of WHIRLD WITHIN iTunes and Google Play Storefronts. >>PR FULL
