Winnebago Industries, Inc. WGO - Options Recap

We took notice of Winnebago’s impressive earnings beat yesterday morning and promptly formulated a range of options ideas to try to take advantage of the situation.

We’ll selected the WGO Weekly $43-46 Calls to put on watch, and each of the four contracts in that range turned out to be a solid intraday mover. The following are the total possible gains which could have been banked off of these ideas on the day:

$53 Calls – Range: 2.29-4.30 – Max Gain: 88%
$54 Calls – Range: 2.00-3.60 – Max Gain: 80%
$55 Calls – Range: 1.50-3.00 – Max Gain: 100%
$60 Calls – Range: 1.18-2.40 – Max Gain: 103%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FL Recap & More

Footlocker, Inc. FL – Recap

On Friday, we cited a big profit and sales beat on Foot Locker’s Q1 earnings report, noting that we have had good luck with the company’s earning chain in the past. Our designated targets were the FL 06/15 $52.50-55 Calls. Lightning struck for us once again as FL surged and our ideas took off.

The $52.50 Calls ran hard from a low of 1.30 and subsequently hit a high of 4.50. That works out to a daily rip of 246% Meanwhile, the $55 Calls went on a slightly more intense ride, trading in a range from .65-2.54 for total possible intraday gains of 291%


ArQule, Inc. ARQL
It was just this past Wednesday morning that we were mentioning our late April call on ARQL which allowed us to catch the stock when it was trading as low as 2.40. ARQL had, at the time of last week’s mention, breached into the four-dollar range, but after a fruitful finish to the week, we have to circle back to comment on its impressive new highs.

In its fifth consecutive trading day of posting higher lows and higher highs, the stock reached a new high of 5.29, pushing our one month observed increase on the stock to 120%



Tintri, Inc. TNTR

We also want to place TNTR on bottom watch as we kick off the short trading week, after noticing that the stock has been absolutely crushed in the past week. It had already been on a steady downward trajectory, but as you can see below, the selloff really kicked into high gear just last week.

We’ve also noticed a rapid rise in the short volume, accounting for more than 1.2M of the stocks total volume on Friday. With the stock already having been egregiously oversold, this type of scenario can often lead to a short squeeze, and we will want to be ready to ride TNTR on the way back up, if that occurs.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VTVT Recap & More

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

Our report yesterday morning included  a look at the VTVT chart, and establishing our interest in tracking it as a bottom play. Our timing in this really could not have been any better as the stock not only made it biggest single session move of the year, but also traded its highest volume.

VTVT ran from a low of .79 and reached as high as 1.67, a 53% intraday rip, and ended up closing at 1.19, filling a portion of the large gap which you can plainly see below. Based on the activity we’ve now witnessed, and the still-ripe look of the chart, we’re going to continue to keep a close watch over VTVT.


Van Eck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX)

We also want to begin tracking a pair of options contracts in the GDX chain. Gold has been doing well and looks as if another solid day could be in the cards.

On that event, there should be some nice activity in the GDX Weekly $22.50 & $23 Calls, so we’ll be monitoring for that.



Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. TNDM – Update

It was a week ago today that we were commenting on our coverage of TNDM in 2018. We caught this stock at a low of 2.14 earlier this year, and it has come a long way since then.

This week the stock has traded up to a high of 7.75, marking an increase of 262% since we began tracking it.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Month-Long Runners

Geron Corp. GERN

It was just on Tuesday morning that we did a review of the performance of GERN, a stock we had initially tagged on February 5th. It had made considerable progress over a six week period, and after a fantastic session yesterday, the stock once again shot to new highs.

It ran all the way to an even 5.00, which from the 2.025 low we observed in early February, marks an increase of 147% This week has brought the highest volume, and now the highest PPS since 2015 for GERN. With the stock well into Blue Skies, we’re be interested to continue following its activity.


DURECT Corp. DRRX

Speaking of stocks on our radar that have enjoyed longer-term success, we want to talk about DRRX again this morning. We’ve been tracking this stock since mid-December (12/14), and in two separate runs here in 2018, we’ve seen it make fantastic progress.

We also included DRRX once again at the beginning of this month, and yet again on Tuesday of this week as the stock has continued to push its way further and further upward. This month alone it has risen from 1.2338 to a new high of 2.20, a gain of 78%

Subsequent to our original alert, DRRX registered a low of .875, and from there, yesterday’s high measures as a 151% increase.



NII Holdings, Inc. NIHD

In yet another month-long gainer, we have NIHD. We signaled out interest in tracking this play back on the last day of February and it has been steadily ramping its way up all month long.

We’ve witnessed a run from a low of 1.115, to yesterday’s new high of 2.28, marking a   104% intra-month move.
