Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CAT Updates & More

Caterpillar, Inc. CAT – Update

After having some success earlier in the week with some higher priced CAT options, we observed a course correction, and yesterday informed readers that we would be rolling our strike prices down to the CAT Weekly $143-145 Calls.

It’s a good thing that we did, too, because we saw some excellent intraday gain opportunities off of those ideas after the session commenced:

$143 Calls – Range: 1.82-5.05 – Max Gain: 177%
$144 Calls – Range: 1.49-4.20 – Max Gain: 182%
$145 Calls – Range: 1.02-3.40 – Max Gain: 233%

Fresh Options Ideas:

Chipotle Mexican Groll Inc. CMG Weekly $380-385 Calls
Facebook, Inc. FB Weekly $165-172.50 Calls


Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. SGSI

We tagged SGSI along with its news yesterday morning, and the stock performed very well as a result. Those PRs alluded to some exciting things happening for the company, namely being awarded $1.5M in new contracts, along with a massive share reduction.

SGSI traded in a range from .0055-.0094, for a 71% rip. It was enough fuel to start the fire, now we’re going to want to continue to monitor the situation on the chance that further swing trade opportunities present themselves.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INSY Recap & More

INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, we’ve been tracking the INSY 01/19 $8 and $9 Calls since Wednesday morning.

After Friday’s session brought us some solid gains, we mentioned that we could be in line to see an extension to those moves, and that we’d look to roll up our strike price to the $10-level if the stock held above its premarket low of  9.75, which it did with no problem.

We were able to see some nice extensions to the highs we had already observed in the $8 and $9 Calls, and as a nice move on the $10′s as well. We’ve now witnessed the $8 Calls run from .90-3.20, for a gain of 255%, while the $9′s have gone up from .60 to 2.70, which works out to a 350% run. Excellent gains were there for the taking on the $10 Calls as well, as they ran from .70-1.80 on the day, a 157% rip.

A play on the stock alone from the low on Wednesday following our initial alert at  7.64, to yesterday’s high of 11.62, would have been good for gains of up to 52%and the stock has trended even higher in the premarket this morning, so we’ll be on the lookout for this party to possibly keep rolling.



Pot Stock Updates

We’d also like to swing back around to provide updates for a couple of our favorite cannabis plays. Back on November 7th, we reminded our readers of what a big year 2018 was gearing up to be for the marijuana business. We included a list of cannabis plays to watch closely, and among them was ACBFF and TRTC. Two stocks that we’ve been tracking for years.

Neither one has gone any lower since November, and in fact each have gone on to make some fantastic moves in the last 7 weeks. The excellent gains made available by these plays were as follows:

Aurora Cannabis, Inc. ACBFF -  Range: 2.7776-9.50 – Max Gain: 242%

Terra Tech Corp. TRTC – Range: .1885-.578 – Max Gain: 207%

There;s not going to be any slowdown in our tenacity to cover cannabis stocks as we progress into the new year. California kicked off legal recreational sales this week, and Canada will do so in just six short months. 2018 is set to be a very green year!

Options Review

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – AAPL beat on earnings as well as kicking off sales on the iPhone X, and two out of three of the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* we signaled for possible daytrades ended up recording some nice moves on the day.

Our first order of business to kick off the fresh week is to recap those moves followed by another set of winners we chose on Friday.

The AAPL $170 Calls ran from 1.63-3.82 for potential gains of up to 135%, while the , $172.50s made an even nicer move from .31 to 1.36 for an intraday rip of 339%

____

Arista Networks, Inc. ANET  - The set of ideas we formulated for ANET on Friday were the 11/17 $195-210 Calls, and all three sets of contracts in that range provided traders with the chance at multi-bag intraday gains.

$195 Calls – Range: 3.15-9.30 – Max Gain: 195%
$200 Calls – Range: 2.40-5.80 – Max Gain: 142%
$210 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.11 – Max Gain: 111%

Fresh Idea:

For a new potential play, we’re looking at Pandora Media, Inc. P which took a gut punch on Friday, falling to its lowest prices since early this summer. The last time the stock was this oversold, it followed it up with a run from 6.75 to to 10.00.

We’re going to go out a couple of months on the expiration and track the  P 01/19 $6 and $7 Calls so we have plenty of time to see Pandora make the rebound we’re after.


Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. KERX

We’re going to put KERX on watch after noticing multiple ripe indicators this morning. The stock bounced of a recent bottom and close with strength at the 200DMA on Friday. With the MACD gearing up for a bullish cross and the RSI just about to crack the 50-line, we’ll be interested to track the activity in KERX in coming sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TRXC Recap, Bottom Play & More

 TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We caught TRXC for a pretty nice move earlier this month, when we alerted it on the 16th, and the stock went on a two-day run from 2.15 to 4.43, scoring us a solid double-bagger.

In the weeks since then, TRXC has been under consolidation, and yesterday, we tagged it once again in our extended watchlist, and the stock produced what may be the start of another solid uptrend.

From a low of 2.50, the stock went as high as 3.03, making for a 21% rise on the day, and it maintained more than half of that move into the close on better-than-average volume.

We’ll continue to monitor for the establishment of higher highs and higher lows as TRXC attempts to get its next leg-up.


Immune Design Corp. IMDZ

We’ve got an interesting bottom setup on IMDZ, which recently took a massive downturn following the announcement of a large $80M public offering at a price of 4.10/share.

It’s also important to note that there was a huge $10M block of insider buying that came in on Friday near the lows.

Additionally, as you can see on the chart, the result of the last week of activity is a highly oversold state, and all indications seems to be pointing to the possibility of the stock regaining at least a portion of the ground it has recently lost.

Lastly, the company will be a hosting a post-market conference call tomorrow to discuss 3Q earnings and recent developments that you can tune into at http://ir.immunedesign.com/events.cfm after market close tomorrow and for 30 days thereafter.

As an added idea, we’ll radar the IMDZ 12/15 $5 Calls for observation in the days and weeks ahead. Those could see some nice activity if the stock has the recovery we suspect it might.

Options Roundup

We had good fortune with our fresh options call yesterday, so today we’re going to be recapping the total possible gains on those plays, as well as unearthing a couple of fresh ideas to add to the mix as we close out this trading week.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Recap - Our inkling on DAL yesterday morning was to go bearish after a disappointing earnings call for the airline, with the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts. We were not disappointed with our decision to do so, as those DAL puts went on to log the following double and multi-bag intraday moves for us before lunch hour was over:

$55.50 Puts – Range: .76-1.60 – Max Gain: 110%
$55 Puts – Range: .48-1.05 – Max Gain: 119%
$54.50 Puts – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 160%
$54 Puts – Range: .13-.36 – Max Gain: 177%
$53.50 Calls – Range: .03-.17 – Max Gain: 466%
______

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD

Speaking of bearish options ideas, we want to enter another fresh set into the log this morning in AMD. This stock trades very cyclically, and from a technical perspective, looks as if it could continue to lose ground after a reversal this week. We’re going to place the AMD 07/21 $14-13 Puts on watch into next week in the event that our impression of this play is correct.
______

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. BJRI

Lastly on the options front, we are going to signal a range of extended-term calls on BJRI, which has a pretty attractive bottom setup on the chart at the moment. To take advantage of a potential sustained rebound, we’re going to be monitoring the BJRI 08/18 $35 & 40 Calls.
_____

Bonus Idea: NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls


Diana Containerships. Inc. DCIX

DCIX went into a full-on nose dive recently after it was announced that the company would be taking out roughly an $85M loan to settle a monster pile of debt, and the investment community did not take the news well.

The stock has subsequently fallen to new all-time lows, and that’s where we come in. We’re always looking for stocks like this to put on bottom-watch. Being egregiously oversold, DCIX may yet have a bit further to fall, but we’ll want to be ready for a reversal at any time. The resulting bounce-back could be considerable.
