Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TSLA Options & More

Aegean Marine Petroleum Network, Inc. ANW

Despite the holiday lull this week, we did manage to unearth one interesting play coming off of 4th of July break, which was the sole focus of yesterday morning’s premarket report.

Apart from the big news of a $1B refinancing plan (>>View PR), ANW was exhibiting the telltale signs of an oversold stock ready to rebound, and sure enough, it moved to partially fill the large gap on the chart to the upside. The stock traded from a low of 1.22 and subsequently hit a high of 2.05, which represents an intraday upswing of 68%

The stock fell just a penny shy of its 50DMA yesterday, and with a significant portion of its gap still left to fill, we’ll want to continue to track its movements for the time being.



Tesla, Inc. TSLA

We’ve had our eye on TSLA for the past few sessions as the stock was spiraling downward. At this point in time, we feel it too may in line for a forthcoming recovery swing, and w want to have an options idea handy for such an event.

We’re going to signal our interest in following the TSLA 08/02 $300-315 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.



Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We caught GALT for chances at some really nice gains last month as we tagged the stock on June 12th at a low of 5.83. It went on to register a high of 9.49 (+63%) in the days following that report,. After a period of consolidation of leading into this week, the stock has begun to show signs of perhaps its next leg up.

We’ve pointed out why we’re attracted to the current setup of the chart on the snapshot below:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ANW Bottom Bouncer & More

Aegean Marine Petroleum Network, Inc. ANW

We hope everyone had a pleasant midweek holiday break; we expect a relatively subdued closeout to this short week, but one stock that is hitting our scanners as a high potential bottom play this morning is ANW.

As you can see from the included chart, the stock has been oversold for quite some time now, reaching unsustainable low levels, while a massive gap exists to the upside.

The stock has begun to fill that gap this morning, and we’re interested to see where the spike in activity is going to take ANW.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ENPH Review & More

Aytu BioScience, Inc. AYTU

We’ve done our best this week in reminding readers that our interest in AYTU was not a drill. Beginning from our initial alert in last Wednesday’s premarket report, the stock was exhibiting all the signs of a recovery play.

Yesterday we reiterated our interest for the second time this week, mentioning how the stock had already come a considerable distance from our observed  low of .4118, and that it had picked up momentum on Monday, and that more gains could be in store.

We were right on the money as the stock extended its recent gains yesterday running to a new high of .76, which represents a five day swing of 85%


Enphase Energy, Inc. ENPH

Recently, we have had quite a few plays we’ve signaled within the past couple of months, exhibit really convincing, sustained uptrends, and ENPH is another one to put in that category.

While our most recent mention of the stock came on March 19th, in the midst of the current run as a reminder, our initial call came on February 28th.  On that day, the stock saw a low of 3.07 and hasn’t looked back since.

Yesterday, ENPH surged to a new high of 5.58, marking a respectable one month run of 82% during which time volume has also been greatly increased.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PRGO Recap & More


Perrigo Co. plc PRGO

We placed a number of options ideas on watch yesterday, and PRGO produced the biggest gainer of the day, even as the markets as a whole continued to be in distress.

Despite posting a loss, the company’s earnings beat expectations and after a huge gap-up to start the day, the stock traded with sufficient intraday volatility to provide a nice opportunity for single-session profits in the PRGO Weekly $75 Calls.

Those contracts traded in a range from a low of .15 up to an impressive high of 2.50, marking an enormous 1566% rip on the day.



Nvidia Corp. NVDA

We’re seeing NVIDIA taking a hit in the premarket this morning, even as it just received a price target upgrade from analysts on the heel of its own earnings report.

We see the possibility of a rebound for NVDA stock leading to some nice activity for the NVDA 09/01 $155 and $157.50′s Calls , so those are the contracts we’ll place on watch today.

Lululemon Athletica LULU – Fresh Ideas

Lululemon had an earnings beat of its own yesterday post-market, so we want to formulate some ideas for the LULU chain as well.

Not only is the stock gapping up on earnings, but like DG yesterday, the LULU chart was already looking like a bottom-play with premium potential. That’s why we want to formulate both a short and long term set of ideas for LULU options. The LULU Weekly $55-57.50 Calls*, to coincide with the immediate boost in activity off of these earnings, and the LULU 06/30 58.50-60.50 Calls in the event of a protracted recovery.

*We never highlight options with a weekly expiration on a Friday without an explicit warning. That should tell you how risky it can be. So if you’re not an expert trader, don’t even think about it!


Synergy Pharmaceuticals, Inc. SGYP

We also want to put SGYP on watch today after noticing that the stock is coming off of its 52-week lows. That’s always a chart setup that we’re going to look at, but in this case the lows followed shartly after the company producing positive Phase III data on its TRULANCE™ drug, which is already approved by the FDA.

We’ve included a chart snapshot here, and you can plainly see, the stock had been beaten back severely and is only just now beginning to mount a rebound.
