Blue Horseshoe Stocks: The Week’s Top Winners

The Week’s Top Winners

Cisco Systems, Inc. CSCO – Among our fresh options ideas that we provided readers in yesterday’s premarket report, was a range of calls in the CSCO chain after the company issued much better Q1 figures than were expected.

Our targets were the CSCO Weekly $45-50-47.50 Calls and not only did they all produce instant opportunities for single-session profits, but those gains ended up being absolutely huge multi-bag intraday runs:

$45.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.33 – Max Gain: 232%
$46 Calls – Range: .20-.91 - Max Gain: 355%
$46.50 Calls – Range: .10-.54 – Max Gain: 440%
$47 Calls – Range: .03-.30 - Max Gain: 900%
$47.50 Calls – Range: .03-.11 – Max Gain: 266%
_____

We also had signled the Amarin Corp AMRN Weekly $15.50-17 Calls  and those too produced multi-bag rips across the board:

$15.50 Calls – Range: 1.22-3.90 – Max Gain: 220%
$16 Calls – Range: 1.00-3.00 - Max Gain: 200%
$16.50 Calls – Range: .69-2.90 – Max Gain: 320%
$17 Calls – Range: .52-2.00 - Max Gain: 285%

Today, we’ll look to potentially roll up our strike prices on AMRN to the Weekly $17 & $18 Calls*.

Bonus Idea:
PCG Weekly $24-26.50 Calls*

*NEVER trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are expert-level trader with disposable funds

 Options Ideas

We’re sticking with options as we head into the end of what has been quite a difficult week for stocks in general. All things considered, we still feel it’s the most probable way of coming by short term gain opportunities, even amid less-than-ideal conditions.

Walmart, Inc. WMT – Walmart reported its Q3 earnings this morning, and looks like our top target for the day as a result. Heightened sales, both brick and mortar and via Walmart.com, was the name of the game, as the company jacked up guidance on profits for the 2019 full year.

These developments are definitely moving the needle this morning, so we’re going to want to track the WMT Weekly $101-104 Calls.
_____

Cisco Systems, Inc. CSCO – In its own Q1 report in the post-market yesterday, we have an untraded-upon earnings and revenue beat for CSCO, so we’re also going to formulate an idea here.

In conjunction with a solid multiple bottom formation on the chart, the present conditions may favor our chances for a quick strike trade on the CSCO Weekly $45-50-47.50 Calls.

AMRN Weekly $15.50-17 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HSY Options & More

The Hershey Co. HSY

We’re looking at one of the biggest players in the Halloween candy game in Hershey as we kick off a fresh trading week. The company reported its Q3 earnings on Thursday, and despite a frosty reception from Wall Street, we are liking the look of this play.

The company asserts that it is on a good path, having had what the CEO calls a game changing year. While the stock did see its biggest daily loss since 2016 on Thursday following the report, it did not turn into a multi-day slide. Coupled with what looks to be another rebound day for the markets at large, and we’re interested in signaling a few HSY Calls.

We’ll place the HSY Weekly $102-104 Calls on watch this morning.

____

Bonus Idea:
Nutanix, Inc. NTNX 01/18 $42.50 & $45 Calls


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

On Tuesday, we noted that with such a sharp and rapid downturn in the markets, that a rebound was certain to be in the cards for the SPY. It led us to signal interest in the SPY 10/31 $275-277 Calls, which will certainly be in play today as the SPY is gapping up big this morning in the premarket.

We’ll be back tomorrow morning with a recap of what is likely to be a cleanup session for these plays today.

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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NEPT Recap & More

Neptune Technologies & Bioressources, Inc. NEPT

We want to follow up with NEPT this morning as the stock continues to break out to new highs. We originally slated this one for observation back on November 28th, and it has been a near-continual uptrend since then.

Subsequent to that November report, we would witness a low of 1.30, and as of the newly registered annual high of 3.10 yesterday, it marked a run of 138% in just over four weeks, with volume having been especially impressive this week. That high also represents

We will continue to track NEPT as long as it continues to register higher highs and higher lows. It is a cannabis play, but based in Canada, and thus relatively unaffected by recent statements from the DOJ which caused a selloff in many domestic pot stocks late this week.


ChinaNet Online Holdings, Inc. CNET

Speaking of multi-year highs, we tagged CNET in yesterday’s morning report, just in the nick of time to catch the first bullish activity the stock has seen since 2014. An unexpected entry into the crypto space via a new partnership (>> View PR) sent shares through the roof.

CNET traded up from a low of 2.76 and went on to hit 11.90, marking an intraday run of 331% on an all-time high number of shares traded on the day. Course correction is likely, but we’re defintely going to want to keep tabs on CNET moving forward, as dip and rip opportunities may present themselves.
