Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VZ Update & More

My Size, Inc. MYSZ

We had MYSZ in our extended watchlist last monday, and the stock mainly traded sideways for the ensuing few sessions. We re-tagged it yesterday after noticing that the party had finally started, and the result was a very nice trading range on the stock.

From a low of .66 earlier this week, MYSZ reached a high of 1.28 during yesterday’s session, representing a move of 94% over just a short time span. The stock also traded record volume yesterday, se we’ll be sure to keep an eye peeled as we finish out this trading week.



Verizon, Inc. VZ

We’ve had a ton of success stories on the options front recently, and VZ has quickly grown into one of the top performers of the bunch. When we signaled a range of contracts to observe in the VZ chain on November 17th, the VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls,  the stock itself traded for as little as 44.62. After a nearly continual bullish streak for the past couple of weeks, the stock has gone on to hit a high of  51.09.

That move has of course rocketed our selected contracts to astronomical highs. When we last updated their progress on Wednesday morning, they had offered gains ranging from 240-575% but thanks to two more solid sessions, those figures have been extended considerably.

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls
$45 Calls – Range: 1.08 -6.05 – Max Gain: 460%
$46 Calls – Range: .59-5.03 – Max Gain: 753%
$47 Calls – Range: .39-4.00 – Max Gain: 926%
$48 Calls – Range: .23-3.18 – Max Gain: 1283%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas, VAPE Recap & More

Fresh Options Ideas

The markets made a notable upturn following yesterday’s Fed meeting from which we learned that it will be proceeding with caution regarding a potential interest rate hike. The floundering world economy as well as trouble with low inflation domestically were cited as reasons behind the reticence. Despite the note of uncertainty, there is nothing ambiguous about the overall market sentiment at present, which is leading us to formulate some bullish ideas on the options-trading front.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We’ve enjoyed tons of success trading SPY options in the past when we need a close analog of the markets as a whole, so it stands to reason that we call out a new idea for some SPY Calls this morning. We’re going to be paying attention to the SPY Weekly $204-206 Calls.


Apple, Inc. AAPL

AAPL seemed to enjoy a boost in the wake of the US Government’s dismissal of the federal court case which had embroiled the two in recent weeks. After enjoying a steady increases throughout the session, the stock is currently gapping up in the premarket. Our target range here is going to be AAPL Weekly $107-109 Calls.

Ambarella, Inc. AMBA

We flagged AMBA in yesterday’s watchlist and it too produced a bullish session. In addition to being connected with AAPL being a provider of internal hardware for Apple devices, AMBA received an upgrade from analysts at Morgan Stanley. We’ve got a corresponding options idea for this one as well. For this play, we’re looking to the AMBA Weekly $44-46 Calls.

Lulu Lemon Athletica, Inc. LULU

LULU is gapping this morning on the heels of an earnings beat, so we’re going to want to signal some calls here as well. This is another stock whose options chain has provided us with ammunition for extreme gains in the past. We’ll be monitoring the LULU Weekly $62-65.50 Calls.

With everything gapping up in the premarket, we’ll of course be on the lookout for possible dip-and-rip scenarios prior to the execution of any of these ideas.


Vape Holdings, Inc. VAPE
 
We can officially add VAPE to the list of cannabis-related stocks that we’ve witnessed making appreciable upswings this week. We added it to yesterday’s morning report as another pot-play to keep an eye on, and we’re immediately rewarded with a solid opportunity for some single-session gains.

VAPE traded in a range from .0106 to .017 on the day, giving traders the chance at profits of up to 60% The move came in conjunction with the announcement of another round of debt restructuring and consolidation (>>View PR).

We’ve added new cannabis candidates to our radar each day this week, and we’ll repeat that again today, pinning CANL and MCOA to our watchlist.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Pot Stocks, ALDR Recap & More

Max Sound Corp. MAXD
 
After congratulating ourselves on observing a 112% rip from MAXD after tagging it in Thursday morning’s premarket report the stock wasn’t finished. Just as a refresher, our observed low that morning was .0033 and the high came in at .007.

We said we wanted to keep tracking the stock due to a strong close and the momentum did indeed carry over into the new trading week. After the slightest dip to .006 first thing in the morning yesterday, MAXD once again took off northward, reaching a new high at an even penny.

The activity was good for isolated intraday gains of up to 67%, and at that penny high, it represented a two-session upswing of 203% over our observed low from Thursday. As long as MAXD continues to register higher base levels of support as it has done thus far, it will retain our attention.


Alder Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. ALDR

ALDR was an inclusion from yesterday’s watchlist as well, and we saw some excellent intraday gains, especially considering its elevated price range. We watched as it traded up from a low of 21.75 and reached a subsequent high of 27.79.

That represents a single-session advance of 28% which is all the more impressive coming from a $20+ stock. The move came on roughly fifteen times the 3-month average volume, and was facilitated by news of positive migraine study results.


Also included in our report yesterday was a list of marijuana stocks we’ve tracked over a period of years, that we wanted to revisit to kick off the week, as investor interest in the cannabis space seems to be on the rise of late. In addition to HEMP, which made a small double-digit increase but had a relatively modest session by comparison, the following pair each made gains of a more substantial nature: 

GreenGro Technologies Corp. GRNH – First up, GRNH made an impressive daily swing as it traded in a range from .03-.05, for potential profits of up to 53% being made possible on the day.

Terra Tech, Inc. TRTC – The other runner was TRTC, which made a move from .33-.41, a 24% increase. We’re going to continue to reserve a spot on our radars for this one as well, especially with a post-market earnings call slated for this afternoon. (Click through to PR for participation info)


*We also have a reminder for our readers of a couple other pot plays we’ve tracked in the past that we’re going to be monitoring more closely in the light of increased sector activity: PHOT, VAPE

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

Options Ideas – Updates

On Tuesday, we mentioned the possibility of taking advantage of the recent market downturn by utilizing some extended options ideas as stocks began to recover. We flagged 09/18-10/02 Calls in the FB, GPRO, GMCR, AAPL, NFLX, and TSLA chains. It didn’t very long for these ideas to bear fruit; we identified the following opportunities during yesterday’s session:

FB Sept 18th $85 Calls – Range: 3.54-5.25 – Max Gain: 48%
AAPL Sept 18th $105 Calls – Range: 4.95-7.40 – Max Gain: 49%
NFLX Sept 18th $98 Calls – Range: 10.75-15.23 – Max Gain: 42%
GPRO Sept 18th $45 Calls – Range: 3.04-4.00 – Max Gain: 32%

All of these stocks are gapping up significantly in the premarket today, so we expect to see some further chances for profit in these contracts. We’ll have to remain open to the possibility of needing to roll up our strike prices/expiration dates to stay closer to the money as the situation dictates.


Recap: Abengoa (SA) ABGB & Direxion Daily Nat Gas Bull 3X ETF (GASL)

We were tracking both of these stocks in the premarket yesterday, and each made modest yet notable intraday moves. ABGB traded in a range from 5.91-6.58, while GASL made its way from a low of 4.12 and went on to hit 4.56.

Both of those moves registered as 11% intraday increases, and in each case we’re going to be looking for the stocks to record higher levels of support than yesterday’s swing lows as we head into week’s end.


Great Basin Scientific, Inc. GBSN

We also want to tag GBSN as a bottom-watch play this morning. We love to track stocks that have been beaten back to new 52-week lows and bear an oversold look on the chart, and this is a prime example of just such a play.

In a press announcement this morning, the company has addressed the recent selloff, and we’ll be interested to see how the stock reacts. The CEO stated: “We believe our recent stock performance represents a technical inefficiency related to unit separation, not the underlying fundamentals of the Company’s performance”. >>VIEW PR
