Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Highs for HMNY, MNKD

Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

It was just yesterday morning that we were remarking on the continuously bullish tendencies of HMNY over the past few weeks since we began tracking it on September 20th.

To that point, we had seen a huge run from a low of 5.47 to 23.49, and then yesterday’s session brought another solid performance, and yet another new high. HMNY traded in a daily range from 22.75 to 28.70. That works out to a an intraday rise of 26% and an updated total on our overall observed move since 10/20 amounting to 425%


MannKind Corp. MNKD

Yesterday we were talking about some options calls we made on Friday for MNKD, the 10/20 $5.50 & $6.00 Calls, which have made some good moves, but we neglected to mention our success on the stock side itself.

A quick view of the MNKD Tag in our newsletter archive at BlueHorseshoeStocks.com shows that we’ve been consistently mentioning the stock over the past several months, and four times already since the beginning of October. Our observed low on the stock alone came in at 1.85, and yesterday’s new high for MNKD represented an overall increase of 276%

Moving back to the options side of things, those $5.50 Calls traded up from .71-1.60 (+129%) intraday, and from Friday’s low of .10, a total of 1500%  The $6.00’s saw a daily range .47-1.30 (+177%), and the overall move we’ve witnessed since Friday comes in at a whopping 2500%

Fresh Options Idea:

Delta Air Lines. Inc. DAL- Not only did Delta post a Q3 earnings beat in the premarket despite taking a hit due to the recent hurricanes, but the chart is also currently headed for a Golden Cross. With that in mind, we’re going to signal the DAL Weekly $52.50-54 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Celebrating 6 Years!

Happy Anniversary to Us!

First thing’s first- today marks the SIX YEAR anniversary of when we launched BlueHorseshoeStocks.com, our home on the web, and place to store and make available every single newsletter we’ve ever sent out during that time! We’ve unfailingly brought ideas to the table every trading day since then and want to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers who we value so much. From the most loyal who have been with us from the beginning, to every single person we picked up along the way. Cheers to all!


GoPro, Inc. GPRO

We put a set of options on watch for GPRO on Friday morning, and the potential single session gains that were there for the taking ranged from very good to downright fantastic!

Our highlighted range was the GPRO Weekly $9-10 Calls, and the intraday move that the stock itself made from a low of 9.31 up as high as 10.38, facilitated the following gain opportunities:

$9 Calls – Range: .34-1.35 – Max Gain: 297%
$9.50 Calls – Range:.13-.84 – Max Gain: 546%
$10 Calls – Range:.01-.40 – Max Gain: 3900%

As you can see, the chances for profits were exponentially greater, the higher the strike price chosen, but all around the idea turned out to be solid no matter what.


Eros International, plc EROS

We want to place EROS on watch as a possible bottom-bounce play this morning, after noticing a couple of different factors at work. The stock spent the past several sessions getting pummeled down to new 52-week lows, which in itself would be enough to catch our attention.

This morning we’re seeing a notable gap-up in the premarket, on the news that the Indian film company has entered preliminary talks with Apple to sell its entire content library. (>>View PR)

The stock was recently trading in the $14 range, and a return to that level does not seem out of the question, so we want to keep an eye on EROS as we kick off a new trading week.
