Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Review

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – AAPL beat on earnings as well as kicking off sales on the iPhone X, and two out of three of the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* we signaled for possible daytrades ended up recording some nice moves on the day.

Our first order of business to kick off the fresh week is to recap those moves followed by another set of winners we chose on Friday.

The AAPL $170 Calls ran from 1.63-3.82 for potential gains of up to 135%, while the , $172.50s made an even nicer move from .31 to 1.36 for an intraday rip of 339%


Arista Networks, Inc. ANET  - The set of ideas we formulated for ANET on Friday were the 11/17 $195-210 Calls, and all three sets of contracts in that range provided traders with the chance at multi-bag intraday gains.

$195 Calls – Range: 3.15-9.30 – Max Gain: 195%
$200 Calls – Range: 2.40-5.80 – Max Gain: 142%
$210 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.11 – Max Gain: 111%


Fresh Idea:

For a new potential play, we’re looking at Pandora Media, Inc. P which took a gut punch on Friday, falling to its lowest prices since early this summer. The last time the stock was this oversold, it followed it up with a run from 6.75 to to 10.00.

We’re going to go out a couple of months on the expiration and track the  P 01/19 $6 and $7 Calls so we have plenty of time to see Pandora make the rebound we’re after.

Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. KERX

We’re going to put KERX on watch after noticing multiple ripe indicators this morning. The stock bounced of a recent bottom and close with strength at the 200DMA on Friday. With the MACD gearing up for a bullish cross and the RSI just about to crack the 50-line, we’ll be interested to track the activity in KERX in coming sessions.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Idea

At the end of last week, we signaled some calls in AAPL, one of which ran over 3500% on Friday. Following the company’s earnings beat this week, we’ve got another set of options ideas to track as AAPL has streaked to new annual highs.

With its premarket peak coming in at the $175-range, we’re going to want to monitor the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* for potential daytrades.

In addition to a healthy earnings beat, Apple the iPhoneX is going on sale. These are just the types of conditions that could allow it to continue to streak into blue skies.

*Please note that trading weekly options on a Friday is incredibly risky, and should only ever be attempted by expert traders with disposable funds. If that doesn’t describe you, stay away!  

Arista Networks, Inc. ANET

We would also like to look at ANET this morning, which took a gut punch during yesterday’s session. The sharp decline cause the PPS to fall below the channel of a continuous uptrend that had, until yesterday had persisted for most of the past year.

On the chance that it was just a momentary setback, we’re going to highlight some options contracts here as well that could work quite nicely if ANET can recover. We’ll have our eye on the ANET 11/17 $195-210 Calls.
