Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL, CPST Recaps & More

Delta Airlines, Inc. DAL

We picked up on Delta’s premarket earnings beat yesterday, and took the opportunity to formulate a set of options ideas to correspond with the activity, and it’s a good thing we did.

We highlighted and began tracking the DAL 04/13 51.50-53 Calls, and unsurprisingly, every single contract within our designated range made solid moves on the day.

$51.50 Calls – Range: .92-2.13  – Max Gain: 132%
$52 Calls – Range: .66-1.70 – Max Gain: 158%
$52.50 Calls – Range: .41-1.25 – Max Gain: 205%
$53 Calls – Range: .15-.68 – Max Gain: 353%

Not only did we already bear witness to these excellent gain opportunities, but it looks as if these figures might be extended even further today as we close out another trading week, so we’ll really want to continue to keep an eye peeled. We’ll also roll up to include the $53.50 Calls on our watchlist.

Fresh Options Idea:
SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) $266.50-268 Calls


Capstone Turbine Corp. CPST

We were just commenting the other morning on how so many of our stock selections so far in 2018 have gone on to mount very steady bull runs, and CPST is another shining example of just that.

We initially flagged the stock for observation a month ago, on March 12th, and the stock has been in a continual uptrend since then, so we wanted to take this chance to update our readers on its progress. From our observed low of .934, CPST has rocketed up to a new high of 1.85, marking a one month move of 98%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OREX Recap & More


Orexigen Therapeutics, Inc. OREX

On a day like yesterday, when the markets take an unexpected and brutal bath, it always helps to find a trend-bucker. Fortunately for us, all was not lost because we had included OREX on our watchlist in our premarket report.

Even as most other stocks wavered under the intensity of yesterdays bearish push, OREX ran from a daily low of .23 to a high of .39 for a 70% intraday run. It also closed with strength at .34, not too far below the area of a massive gap on the chart. We’ll definitely want to continue monitoring OREX, as even a partial filling of said gap would produce further gains of a significant magnitude.

Bottom-Watch Plays

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TEUM Update & More

Pareteum Corp. TEUM

The last time we mentioned TEUM was December 8th, shortly after which time the stock was trading for as little as .661. At the time the company had no involvement in the trendy cryptocurrency space.

Flash forward to this week, and an announcement that the company is adding blockchain capability for cryptocurrency support on its global cloud billing platform has the stock soaring to new highs.

TEUM hit 3.15 yesterday, which marks an increase of 377% in less than three weeks’ time. Volume for the day was on the order of roughly five times the monthly average.

Bitcoin itself has been making a nice rebound after the pullback which followed its big run to nearly $20K, and there is no reason to suspect that the push toward blockchain related technologies, both cryptocurrency and otherwise, is just a passing fad.


INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY - Options Recap

We made our interest in the INSY 01/19 $8 & $9 Calls known yesterday morning, and it barely took any time at all for our ideas to come to fruition.

As we were mentioning yesterday, the company recently initiated Phase II trials of its synthetic Cannabidiol (CBD) Oral Solution for Treatment of Refractory Childhood Absence Epilepsy, and the FDA granted Fast Track status to the ‘drug’ for the treatment of a rare genetic disorder (Prader-Willi).

This news allowed for some very nice moves in our designated contracts. The $8 Calls ran from .35-1.00 for a gain of 186%, while the $9′s traded up from .20-.55, trending up 175% on the day.


Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPE

We also want to swing back to remind our readers of last week’s alert on AMPE. We tagged this play seven days ago (four trading days), and saw it trading for as little as 2.57. As of yesterday’s high of 3.55, the stock had thus far risen by 38%

The stock’s peak PPS represented a new annual high, so we’ll be interested to see how the stock performs in blue skies.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PTOP Recap & More

Peer to Peer Network PTOP
.
Subsequent to our initial alert of PTOP on November 8th, we would observe the stock trading for as little as .0004 and it has gone on quite a ride since.

We were already mentioning the solid moves it’s made in recent weeks, but yesterday the stock broke out to new highs, trading up to .022. That works out to an incredible run of 5400% which might seem over the top if not for the fact that the sector has been under mass hysteria as Bitcoin recently touched new all time highs at $19,694.68. We’ve been all over the cryptocurrency/blockchain space since a BTC was worth just a couple thousand dollars, so to see how far its come in just a short time is highly impressive.

Like many other crypto plays, PTOP has been a hot ticket item of late, and will continue to be a point of focus for us moving forward.


Fresh Options Ideas

FedEx Corp. FDX - We want to signal some contracts in the FDX chain on the heels of the company’s post-market earnings release yesterday. Trading short term options after a strong earnings report has become our butter, and FDX was already building on a significant bull run leading into yesterday. We’ll have our eye on the FDX Weekly $245-250 Calls.

Blackberry Ltd. BB – BlackBerry is on the premarket earnings calendar this morning, and with record software and services revenue, could be in line for a big day. We’re going to monitor the BB Weekly $10.50-11.50 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EKSO New Highs & More

Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. EKSO

What started as a nominal gainer that came off of our extended watchlist on Wednesday, EKSO rolled its 37% performance over into yesterday’s session, carrying on the multiday action. After a  strong close at 1.81 on Thursday, we said we’d be interested in continuing to track EKSO as we head into week’s end, and it was a great idea.

The stock continued its ascent to a new high  and reached 2.18. From Wednesday’s low of 1.40, it works out to a respectable two day swing of 56% Just as we mentioned yesterday, the stock closed strong again, and we’ll want to keep monitoring for higher highs and higher lows .


Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX – Options Idea

Valeant has been working its way down to an area of relative support recently, consolidating after a nice run off of its 52-week lows from April to May. This morning in the premarket, we’ve taken notice of the fact that VRX is gapping up considerably in the premarket.

We want to be waiting in the wings with an options idea to take advantage of the action following what could very well be an early dip-and-rip formation. We’ve called VRX and a ton of other such stocks in these positions, and done very well in the past.

We’ll be looking to the VRX Weekly $12 and 12.50 Calls* for possible swing trades today.

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


Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPE

We want to point out a possible momentum play in AMPE. We’ve talked about this stock in the past, and as you can see from the included chart snapshot, it has been mounting a decent rebound effort off of a double bottom over the past few sessions.

We’re going to place AMPE on watch into next week, as a similar move to the one exhibited by the stock earlier this spring would mean considerable gains from this point.
