Options Review

CSX Corp. CSX – We highlighted some fresh options ideas in yesterday morning’s premarket report and CSX turned out to be the prime target out of the bunch. We designated the CSX Weekly $77-76 Puts as our contracts of interest, and those ended up producing some respectable chances at intraday gains.

$167.50 Puts – Range: 3.53-6.75 – Max Gain: 91%
$170 Puts – Range: 3.21-6.00 – Max Gain: 87%
$175 Puts – Range: 2.54-5.85 – Max Gain: 130%

Abbott Laboratories, Inc. ABT – 
Another of the targets we selected based on yesterday’s premarket earnings reporters was ABT. Our contract of interest was the ABT Weekly $83.50 Calls, and we’re pleased to report that those returned a multi-bag single session run.

Those calls ran from a low of 1.34 and subsequently reached 3.75, which was good for an intraday gain of 180%

JB Hunt Transport Services Inc. JBHT – On Tuesday morning, we signaled the JBHT Weekly $95-100 Calls as a potential play, and in addition to makling a 100% move for us on that day, yesterday brought even more solid gain opportunities. The $95 Calls ran from .65-3.30 for a walloping 408% while the $100’s took of from .05-.35, marking an incredible 600% rip in a single day!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Post-Earnings Options Plays

Energizer Holdings, Inc. ENR 

We’ve been seeking out prime bottom play opportunities this week, and to continue that trend, we’ve run across Energizer this morning on the heels of the stock registering a new annual low yesterday.

In conjunction with the fact that Deutsche Bank just upgraded ENR from a Hold to a Buy rating with a price target of $52/share (trading in the $37-range yesterday), along with indicators that the stock is heavily oversold, and we are confident in calling this one a prime bottom play candidate as well.


Fresh Options Plays 

We also have a pair of fresh earnings-related options ideas to pass along this morning. Post-earnings plays are typically our miost successful, and we’ve got a couple of good hunches about the following contracts as we cruise through this midweek. 

FedEx Corp. FDX –  Already in a good spot on the chart for a possible rebound leading into today’s session with a strong double-bottom setup, we’re looking to FDX options as FedEx’s Q4 results yielded a profits and earnings beat. As a result, we’re going to be tracking the FDX Weekly $157.50-60 Calls.

Micron Technology, Inc. MU – We are also looking at MU, which reported in the post-market yesterday as well, posting a beat on Q3 earnings, and bolstered guidance for sales of computer memory chips. Like the above mentioned play, MU is giving off a heavy multi-bottom signal. In this case we are interested in monitoring the MU Weekly $35-36.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Solid Runners

SOLID RUNNERS

We tagged both INSY and HSGX in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and both stocks produced admirable runs on the day. 

INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY just registered its lowest price ever earlier this week, and we thought it would be worth it to track as a potential bottom-bounce play. The return was instantaneous. INSY opened at a low of .32 before running as high as .74, which marks an intraday pop of 131%

There is still a huge gap to the topside on the chart, so we’ll definitely continue to monitor the activity on INSY in the days and weeks ahead.
_____

Histogenics Corp. HSGX was also a solid mover for us on the day yesterday. This stock has traded mostly flat for the whole of 2019 so far, but it looks like we tagged it as a bottom play at an opportune moment.

From a low of .24 it reached .32 for a respectable 33% gain, but this could just be the beginning. We’ll want to continue tracking this play as well.
