Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More SPY Action

SPDRA S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We want to formulate a new options idea for the SPY, but first, we would like to present the final performance of the Weekly SPY Calls we signaled last Tuesday.

Those were the SPY Weekly SPY Weekly $272.50-274 Calls and the gains they experienced over the course of the short holiday week were exceedingly impressive, with percentage increases in the thousands on two out of four contracts, with the other two set not trailing far behind, with huge multi-bag gains of their own. .

$272.50 Calls – Range: .43-3.35 – Max Gain: 679%
$273 Calls – Range: .28-2.82 – Max Gain: 907%
$273.50 Calls – Range: 17-2.35 – Max Gain: 1282%
$274 Calls – Range: .09-1.82 – Max Gain: 1922%

As we mentioned above, we’ve got a fresh idea for the SPY for today as well. in the wake of this morning’s positive jobs numbers. We’re going to keep an eye on the SPY 07/09 (Expire Today*) 275.50-277 Calls.

*Speculation in these contracts today is tantamount to trading weekly options on a Friday. Should NOT be attempted, except by veteran traders with disposal funds!


Intrexon Corp. XON – Form-4 Bottom Bouncer

We’re very interested in the current scenario with XON. We noticed the CEO purchasing roughly $100M worth of the company’s stock last week at 13.37, and we like the current technical setup as well, with a strong bottom bounce in progress along with a gap on the chart to the upside.

We could see an significant move happening for the stock itself, but we also want to include an extended term options idea for more leverage in the case of a protracted recovery, which is presently looking like a solid possibility. We’ll have an eye on the XON 08/17 $14-17 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Roundup & More

Cannabis Roundup

We wanted to take some time out this midweek to get back to cannabis, the rapidly growing industry that we’ve always said we felt has as much or more potential than any other out there. The first quarter of the 2018 calendar year was rather low key, but with some major cannabis dates coming up, we wanted to sharpen our focus on the sector.

The 04/20 Holiday is generally a time when you see heightened visibility, and an influx of sales for recreational marijuana businesses. It’s the “Super Bowl” for many of these businesses, which will see their highest customer volume of the year.

It’s a time of increased awareness in the investment community for the space as a whole, and that’s why we wanted to refresh our running watchlist of pot stocks on our radar:

As for the ones based here in the U.S. some of our favorites (in no particular order) have been: OWCP, AGTK, HEMP, SGMD, SING, GRNE, GOHE, MCOA, MCIG, POTN, PNTV, RMHB, CANN and CBIS.

We also have July to look forward to, which marks the nationwide legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada, where some of the most impressive cannabis companies, like ACBFF and APHQF reside. Other notable Canadian players include ATTBF, GLDFF, GLNNF, NXTTF, MRRCF, SPRWF, and CRON.


Facebook, Inc. FB

We started off the week on Monday by signaling some options ideas, the FB Weekly $155-160 Calls. Despite a terrible start to the week for the markets as a whole, yesterday’s bounce-back helped began to provide us with the kind of moves we were looking for out of those plays.

In fact, each of three contracts in our designated range yielded the chance at multi-bag gains yesterday, with the following moves:

$155 Calls – Range: 1.55-4.27  – Max Gain: 175%
$157.50 Calls – Range: .90-2.75 – Max Gain: 205%
$160 Calls – Range: .49-1.69 – Max Gain: 245%

PHOT, CYTR, RNN & Extended Watchlist

Growlife, Inc. PHOT

We’re looking toward PHOT once again today, this old favorite of ours has provided us with opportinuties on countless occasions, and yesterday the company had some important news hit the wire. The company has enlisted the services of former Microsoft and Yahoo! exec, Marco Hegyi, to serve as Growlife’s President. The company is also set to begin a $40M capital infusion from a Nevada private investment group called CANX USA.

For these reasons, as well as the ripening conditions on the chart, we felt we needed to bring PHOT once again to the foreground of our discussions. We also prepared a video chart presentation for your convenience.

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — GrowLife, Inc. (OTCBB: PHOT), a diversified company operating in the legal cannabis industry which develops, markets and deploys products and services addressing the needs of legal cannabis growing and retail operations, including hydroponic growing equipment and retail support software, is pleased to announce that effective immediately, Marco Hegyi will assume the position of President and join the Board of Directors.


CytRx Corp. CYTR

CYTR put forth an exciting day of trading yesterday, with the stock undergoing several bounces. The stock opened at 3.90, and hit a subsequent high of 4.39 (+13%). We then saw a pullback to 3.45, and a bounce to 3.74 (+8%). This was followed by bounce from 3.55 to 4.02 (+13%), it pulled back again, and made another swing, this time from 3.60 to 4.05. (+13%)

Flippers certainly had the chance to have a field day with this one, with possible cumulative gains on the order of 47% presenting themselves.


Rexhan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. RNN

RNN came off of yesterday’s extended watchlist to provide our readers with a chance for a nice flip, trading from a low of .4026 to a high of .5179. That move represents an intraday gain of up to 29% on roughly 10X the posted 3mo. average volume.
