Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Reviews

CarMax, Inc, KMX – Recap

Yesterday morning we placed a set of contracts from the KMX chain on our radars, and while we didn’t yet see a clean sweep of gains from bottom to top, the beginnings of some really nice activity did take place in the lower end of the range.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Interesting Bottom Plays

Biglari Holdings, Inc. BH

We noticed BH this morning purely on the stock’s interesting chart setup. The stock had been crushed down at the end of last month after the company announced its recapitalization plan. We’re not saying the move shouldn’t have resulted in a decline in the stock’s price, but these selloffs tend to have a snowball effect, and BH has been over-abused.

Simply take a look at the chart below and you can see what we[re talking about. The RSI has been as heavily oversold as you’re likely to see, while the stock has begun to regain some of its lost ground. The MACD is also loudly signaling the potential for a rebound, so we’ll have our eyes peeled.


International Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. IFF

Speaking of bottom play opportunities, we may have an even more interesting one here in IFF today. This stock is currently boasting a cherry of a chart as well, with all of the indicators we commonly scan for showing strong impending bullish signals. Not to mention the Form-4 filed yesterday wherein a 10% ownership insider purchased a $25M block at just a penny below yesterday’s closing price, down here at the bottom.

To help us leverage some good gains out of this one if indeed it can mount the rebound we suspect it might, we’re going to want to be tracking the IFF 06/15 $125-135 Calls.

 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL

We were looking at a favorable setup on the CBRL chart along with a premarket earning beat in yesterday morning’s report, and we floated a couple of options ideas that worked out pretty well early on in the session.

We had the CBRL Weekly $150 & 151.50 Calls as well as the 10/20 $155 Calls on watch, and both our short -term and longer-term ideas provided excellent chances for multi-bag gains on the day.

The Weekly $150′s traded in a range from 1.01-4.00 (+296%), while the
$151.50′s ran from 1.10-2.79, gaining 154% intraday. Even the longer-term idea, the 10/20 $155′s more than doubled on the day, running 175% from 1.09-3.00.


Amyris, Inc. AMRS

We wanted to circle back for AMRS today to recap the past month of its performance on the chart. We put this play on bottom-watch on the morning of  August 15th, and as it turns out, our timing was pretty good. It was just a couple of sessions later when we observed a low of 1.86  in the stock, and it’s been mostly bullish moves since then.

Yesterday, AMRS hit a new high of 3.84, marking an overall increase of 106% in matter of just one month’s time. If the stock can manage to break its previous resistance around the 4.30 area, things could get really interesting.

Added Note:

T2 Biosystems, Inc. TTOO - In that same report from August 15th we were discussing the run we had seen from TTOO from 2.53 to its highs at the time just over $4. It too hit an impressive new high yesterday, at 6.99. That works out to a one month increase of 176%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TTOO Recap & More

T2 Biosystems, Inc. TTOO – Recap

We tagged TTOO as a bottom play just under a month ago in our report dated July 18th, as the stock was undergoing a lengthy period of consolidation. It subsequently found support at 2.53 shortly thereafter, and since that point in time, it has seen a solid recovery off of those lows.

Yesterday, TTOO reached a new high of 4.07, its best PPS all summer long. It worked out to a very respectable 61% upswing over our observed low, and indicators on the chart suggest there is still room for more rapid short term growth, so we’ll continue to keep an eye on this play moving forward.


 SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) – Options Update

The markets ended up rebounding yesterday, leading us to note our interest in tracking the SPY Weekly $244.50-246 Calls in the event that the premarket trend we were noticing continued into the session. That’s what happened, and as a result our highlighted contracts made some really nice intraday moves.

$244.50 Calls – Range: 1.54-2.53 – Max Gain: 1180%
$245 Calls – Range: 1.18-2.05  – Max Gain: 1280%
$245.50 Calls – Range: .83-1.68 – Max Gain: 1225%
$246 Calls – Range: .54-1.30 – Max Gain: 1864%

The possibility of a sustained rally for the markets will lead us to roll up our potential strike prices in the SPY chain up to the $247 and $247.50 Calls to potentially keep this idea rolling.


Zerez Holdings Corp. ZRZH

We first caught wind of ZRZH last year, and it was good to us back then. We want to revisit the stock once again today for a couple reasons.

Not only is ZRZH in a relatively good place on the chart from which to launch a possible rebound, but yesterday the company presented some impressive quarter-over-quarter revenue growth. For those reasons, we want to place this stock on watch this week, a rebound to its previous area of fierce resistance at a nickel would mean considerable gain opportunities from present pricing.

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Zerez Holdings Corporation, (OTC PINK: ZRZH), DBA Smart Cannabis, http://smartcannabis.com today filed its second quarter 2017 quarterly reports with OTCMARKETS. The company reported $2,041,557 in gross revenue, about a 275% increase over first quarter revenues of $544,467 (>>View Full PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays, Options & More

Celadon Group, Inc. CGI

We’ve been seeing a fair bit of bottom-bouncers running across our desks this week, and CGI is the latest to grab our attention. What we’ve got here is a very enticing chart with just about everything we look for in a potential bottom play.

The stock is beginning to come off of being massively oversold, has set higher lows and higher highs for each of the last three sessions, and has a sizable gap to fill to the upside. We also have a MACD that appears as if a bullish cross could be forthcoming, so we’ll definitely want to keep an eye on CGI this week.


____

Two other stocks on our bottom watchlist, California Resources Corp. and CRC Uni-Pixel, Inc. UNXL will remain there. We signaled these two just yesterday, and despite recording only marginal gains on the day, we still want to leave them a spot on our radar as well.



Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX – Options Idea

Speaking of bottom-bouncers, VRX recently rebounded off of new 52-week lows, and is hitting our scanners this morning.  With a pleasing Q1 earnings call which included solid boosts in profits for the quarter as well as reinforced guidance for the remainder of the year, VRX is gapping up considerably in the premarket.

We want to formulate an options idea to coincide with the increased activity and expected price action in a stock in this position. We’ve seen this sort of pattern many times before, and if things play out similarly here, the VRX Weekly $10.50-12 Calls could be in line to see considerable gains.
