Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CVS Update & More

CVS Health Corp. CVS – Recap

Included in yesterday morning’s premarket report, was an post earnings options idea for CVS. We were looking at the CVS Weekly $55.50-57 Calls following the company’s beat on Q2 earnings accompanied by raised guidance, and solid growth bolstered by the Aetna acquisition. The stock was also at a multiple-bottom area of the chart.

With the added help of an intraday market surge our targets enjoyed solid moves on the day.

$55.50 Calls – Range: 1.25-2.80 – Max Gain: 269%
$56 Calls – Range: .85-2.37 – Max Gain: 370%

$57 Calls – Range: .46-1.51 – Max Gain: 417%

We’ll look to roll up slightly and monitor the CVS Weekly $57.50-58 Calls for the remainder of the week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Quick Strike Ideas

India Globalization Capital, Inc. IGCC

First up this morning is a recap of IGCC following its inclusion in our premarket extended watchlist yesterday. The stock didn’t blow its lid, but it did continue the solid run of intraday performances off of its lows from earlier this week which were precipitated by the company’s recent delisting from the NASDAQ down to the OTC Markets.

The stock traded in a range from 1.22-1.84 before tapering back off, which stood as an intraday gain of 51% We’re going to look for IGCC to continue to fill the remaining gap on the chart. As you can see on the included snapshot, the MACD is also beginning to converge toward a bullish cross.




Fresh Options Ideas*:

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – After beating on earnings and missing on revenues, BABA surged this morning, making it our prime bullish target among companies that reported their quarterly earnings today. We’re going to focus on the BABA Weekly 152.50-160 Calls*.
_____

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – We’ve had some good luck with the SPY this week, which isn’t all that surprising when considering the fact that we have a long documented history of success with this fund. We’re so deep in the money with our previously targeted calls, that we’re going to go ahead and roll up our potential strike prices to the SPY Weekly $274.50-276 Calls* as we close out the week.
_____

Weight Watchers International, Inc. WTW – Strangely enough, despite also beating on earnings and missing on revs like the aforementioned play, WTW took a gut punch and appears on track for a bearish session. We’re going to be tracking the WTW Weekly $58.50-56.50 Puts* as a result.

Bonus Idea: AMD Weekly $20-21 Calls*

*NEVER trade weekly options on a Friday unless you’re an expert level trader with disposable funds!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMD Review & More

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD

Our first order of business today is going to be to take a look at the incredible year AMD has had. We’ve mentioned it quite a few times along the way, but if we track all the way back to April 26th, we see that we caught this stock at a low of 10.61.

AMD has been an absolute juggernaught all year, and this morning in the premarket trades are going off at 33.25. That’s 213% higher than our observed share price this spring, and AMD shows little sign of slowing its gradual ascent.

In terms of options ideas, we are going to put an observation tag on the AMD Weekly $32-33 Calls.


Adobe Systems, Inc. ADBE

Yesterday morning for a fresh options idea,we stated that if we saw ADBE maintain support at or above 258.49, we were going to be very interested in the ADBE 10/26 $260-265 Calls.

The stock began to make the reversal we expected yesterday, and its activity fueled the first round of gains for our calls, which were as follows:

$260 Calls– Range: 8.05-10.50 – Max Gain: 30%
$262.50 Calls – Range: 7.25-8.50 – Max Gain: 17%
$265 Calls – Range: 4.85-7.85 – Max Gain: 62%

We would not be at all surprised to have to swing back around to report much larger gains down the road on these ideas, but yesterday’s activity was a solid start.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Thousand Percent Gainers!

Options Review

We included a trio of options ideas in Friday morning’s premarket report, even as we reported hitting a 28-bagger on CGC. Some may have thought that thousand percent gainers were a rarity, but not in this market! They all rose considerably, but TWO out the three ideas yielded chances at single session profits of more than a thousand percent!

Here are those ideas, and the total possible gains they recorded on the day:

AMD Weekly $22.50 & 23 Calls
$22.50: .31-1.48  (+377%) | $23: .07-.97 (+1285%)

ADSK Weekly $147-150 Calls
$147: 6.27-10.58 (+70%) | $148: 3.50-9.59 (+174%) | $149: 3.58-8.40 (+135%) | $150: 2.85-7.62 (+176%)

SPLK Weekly $114-117 Calls
$114: 1.10-12.09 (+999%) | $115: 1.00-11.10 (+1010%) | $116: .95-9.84 (+936%) | $117: 1.10-9.29 (+745%)


Seven Stars Cloud Group Inc SSC

On Friday we noted that our intial alert on SSC on the morning of July 24th led to a a move of 170%+. We then suggested a dip-and-rip could lead to even more gains, and as of the end of the day Thursday we had seen that move, from 2.71 to 4.35.

Friday the rebound continued, with SSC reaching a new high of 5.75. That extended the breadth of this move to 112%, proving that while we mainly focus on options nowadays, our interest in stocks alone still remains.
