CGIX Recap, Retail Plays

Cancer Genetics Inc. CGIX – Review

We’re kicking off the trading month of September this morning with a recap oi the recent performance of a stock that we tagged for observation a couple of weeks back.

We included mention of CGIX in our morning report on November 15th as the stock was searching out a bottom. It established a low of 2.00 just a couple sessions after that, and hasn’t looked back since. In a series of huge days over the past week, CGIX has rocketed to a new high of 9.50. That worked out to an upswing of 375% in a matter of less than two weeks! Cheers to anyone who caught a ride on this shooting star!

We went in on two sets of earnings-related options plays yesterday, and we are happy to report that each and every contract with both designated ranges provided ourselves and our readers with some fantastic single session gain opportunities.

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. CMG – For Chipotle, despite the fact that people appeared to be discounting the company’s earnings report, it posted solid numbers and sent our targeted contracts flying. We had slated the CMG Weekly $380-385 Calls and were met with the following multi-bag chances:

Amazon.com Inc. AMZN – Options Recap

We’ve been tracking a wide range of AMZN calls since our premarket report on Monday morning.

We placed the AMZN 10/06 $965-980 Calls on watch as we were looking for a reversal from the stock that did occur. Yesterday we only provided the moves from the bottom and the top of the range to save time but today we’ll lay out the moves from every set of contracts we’ve been watching.

We mentioned that the gains we had seen up until yesterday morning could be added on to by what appeared to be a bullish session forthcoming, and that came to pass as well. Every set in the range has seen solid intraweek gains.

$965 Calls – Range: 19.25-27.00 – Max Gain: 40%
$967.50 Calls – Range: 25.24 30.20 – Max Gain: 20%
$970 Calls – Range: 15.30-32.05 – Max Gain: 109%
$972.50 Calls – Range: 15.30-28.94 – Max Gain: 89%
$975 Calls – Range: 13.62-26.70 – Max Gain: 96%
$977.50 Calls – Range:  13.48-26.95 – Max Gain: 100%
$980 Calls – Range: 11.39-25.28 – Max Gain: 122%


Lululemon Athletica

LULU was, for the most part, in a general downtrend during the month of August, but to kick off September it looks like a change in pattern in due.

The company posted a solid beat on its post-market quarterly earnings release yesterday, and we want to use that untraded-upon development potentially to our advantage using an options idea.

We’ve had tremendous success with the LULU chain in the past, and this time, we’re going to be tracking the LULU Weekly $60.50-62 Calls* for possible daytrades.

*We never discuss weekly options on a Friday without going out of our way to warn our readers that trading contracts with a weekly expiration on a Friday is exceedingly risky and should only ever be attempted by expert traders!!!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMZN Review & More

LiNiu Technology Group, Inc. LINU

Among yesterday’s tracked stocks was LINU, which we signaled after noticing some abnormal volume and price action in the previous session.

While the stock didn’t necessarily break out in a big way, the intraday move it did make was reasonably solid. From a low of  1.79, it ran as high as 2.36 on the day, marking a 32% pop. The move came on 39X the monthly average volume, and the stock did hold more than half of its daily advance into a strong close.

With that kind of momentum built up, we’ll certainly want to let LINU remain on our radar in upcoming sessions and look for the continued establishment of higher highs and higher lows.


General Electric Corp. GE

We like the setup on the current GE chart, which as you can see from the included snapshot below, has been pounded down to new lows this week.

We’re always looking to track the potential recoveries of heavily oversold stocks, and GE is certainly in that category. There’s also a sizable gap from July which needs to be filled, as well as some insider buying being logged near these lows last week.

We’ll put this one on watch for what seems like an inevitable rebound, while signaling a pair of options contracts to add to our radars, the GE 11/17 $26 & $27 Calls.


Amazon.com Inc. AMZN

We also have to swing back around to pat ourselves on the back for our options ideas on AMZN, which we submitted on Monday morning.

We noted that the AMZN 10/06 $965-980 Calls should have some nice moves once the stock saw a reversal, and it turned out to be a good hunch. The $965’s traded from 19.25-27.00 (+40%), the $980’s went from 11.39-20.20 (+77%) and the five contracts in the range in between those two all made similar gains.

AMZN is gapping up in the premarket this morning, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see our overall observed gains increase further.


Dextera Surgical, Inc. DXTR

Starting a couple of weeks ago on the 16th, and then again midway through last week, we’ve been signaling DXTR, which was coming up off of recent relative lows just a few sessions earlier.

We wanted to quickly point out its performance over that span, which started from a low of .26 and has run up to new highs in premarket trading today. It’s thus far hit a high of .43, which works out to a respectable two-week swing of 65%

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF – Options Recap

We initially placed a pair of options ideas for ANF on watch in our premarket report Thursday, highlighting the ANF Weekly $10 & $11 Calls.

We saw multi-bag moves in those contracts that day, and Friday morning, we noted yet another premarket gap-up from the stock, mentioning that we would continue to track for more gains.

. The $10 Calls traded up to a new high of 2.41, and from our observed low of .60 on Thursday, extended  the total move we saw to 302%  The $11 Calls ran to a new high of 1.38, which from our witnessed low of .11 represented a monster two-day swing from Thursday’s low of 1154%


DSW, Inc. DSW – Options Recap

We went very options-heavy in our reports throughout last week, and another idea that bore fruit on Friday was one we formulated on Tuesday morning, with the DSW 09/15 $17.50 & $20 Calls.

In this case, the $17.50‘s were as low as 1.15 after our signal, and closed at 2.72 on Friday, marking a four-session swing of 137% The $20’s ran from .30 to as much as .80, for a 167% move.

There’s still plenty of time before expiration on these contracts, so we won’t rule out seeing further positive activity in the days and weeks ahead.


Amazon, Inc. AMZN

To keep this options train chugging down the tracks, we’re going to highlight a range of contracts in the AMZN chain.

AMZN stock itself has been under consolidation and is presently sitting around an area of previous support. A lot of eyes are on the company as well as its first day as the official owner of Whole Foods brought sweeping price cuts at the high-dollar supermarkets.

We’re going to look to the AMZN 10/06 $965-980 Calls for an extended term idea, which could yield significant gains once a reversal occurs on the chart.



Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. TNDM

We also want to place TNDM on watch for the reasons outlined in the annotated chart below. The stock cracked its 50DMA last week after recently having fallen to new lows, so we want to put in on the radar for a potential recovery play.
