Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CVS Options & More

CVS Health Corp CVS

First up this morning, we’re taking a look at CVS, which is currently boasting an interesting chart setup along with a recent analyst upgrade.

The stock recently ran to an area of previous resistance near $84, and is currently down in the premarket along with the markets in general, but we’re going to be looking for a recovery.

As you can see on the annotated chart below, there appears to be an impending Golden Cross, with the 50DMA rising toward the 200DMA, and with the company’s quarterly earnings call slated for February 8th, we’re going to signal some options that could see some nice activity.

We’re going to radar the CVS 02/09 $77-80 Calls which will expire at the end of next week, and could explode with a favorable quarterly report.


Ballard Power Systems, Inc. BLDP – Update

We couldn’t have timed yesterday morning’s call of BLDP any better, outlining the reasons we thought the stock was ripe for a reversal. Among other things, it had strung together ten consecutive sessions of decreases or sideways trading, and yesterday brought the beginning of the rebound that we suspected was due.

From an early low of 3.39, BLDP made a modest, yet convincing move of 19% to a high of 4.04, before closing very near to the high of day at 4.02. It’s a good start, and we’ll want to see the stock continue to record higher highs and higher lows, and show some signs of sustaining its momentum.

Adding to the possibility of a continued uptrend is a PR regarding the company’s Protonex subsidiary this morning outlining a government purchase order of $1.6M for its power management systems for special operations military equipment.(>>View PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMRS, TTOO Recaps & More

 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL

We were looking at a favorable setup on the CBRL chart along with a premarket earning beat in yesterday morning’s report, and we floated a couple of options ideas that worked out pretty well early on in the session.

We had the CBRL Weekly $150 & 151.50 Calls as well as the 10/20 $155 Calls on watch, and both our short -term and longer-term ideas provided excellent chances for multi-bag gains on the day.

The Weekly $150′s traded in a range from 1.01-4.00 (+296%), while the
$151.50′s ran from 1.10-2.79, gaining 154% intraday. Even the longer-term idea, the 10/20 $155′s more than doubled on the day, running 175% from 1.09-3.00.


Amyris, Inc. AMRS

We wanted to circle back for AMRS today to recap the past month of its performance on the chart. We put this play on bottom-watch on the morning of  August 15th, and as it turns out, our timing was pretty good. It was just a couple of sessions later when we observed a low of 1.86  in the stock, and it’s been mostly bullish moves since then.

Yesterday, AMRS hit a new high of 3.84, marking an overall increase of 106% in matter of just one month’s time. If the stock can manage to break its previous resistance around the 4.30 area, things could get really interesting.

Added Note:

T2 Biosystems, Inc. TTOO - In that same report from August 15th we were discussing the run we had seen from TTOO from 2.53 to its highs at the time just over $4. It too hit an impressive new high yesterday, at 6.99. That works out to a one month increase of 176%
