Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Success & More

 AT&T, Inc. T – Update

As we were mentioning yesterday, AT&T was ripening for a rebound, and the stock did post a bullish session. It allowed for the beginning of what could still end up being an even more impressive move in the options contracts that we signaled for observation.

We put the T 01/19 $34-36 Calls on watch for a longer-term idea, and they got off to a good start, even as the markets in general took a turn for the worse. The solid performance of T made the following gains possible for our options calls:

$34 Calls – Range: .91-1.33 – Max Gain: 46%
$35 Calls – Range: .53-.89 – Max Gain: 68%
$36 Calls – Range: 37-.56 – Max Gain: 51%

At the present time, we still think AT&T has a ton of upside, with indicators on the chart suggesting that yesterday’s positive session was only a precursor to what could be a much bigger rebound.



Trio of Fresh Options Ideas

We’ve got a couple of daytrading ideas for the NVDA and ROKU options chains, and as we always do, we’d like to caution our readers against trading weekly options on a Friday unless you are an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s incredibly risky.

Roku, Inc. – ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls

We’ve also got a fresh, longer-term idea to add to our list of tracked contracts, after noticing Price Smart was showing a strong double-bottom signal. We’ll place the following idea on watch in coming sessions.as we await this stock’s recovery.

We mentioned this yesterday morning, subsequent to which point the stock launched into another bullish session. dwarfing Monday’s performance. It traded from a low of .65 right at the outset, to an afternoon high of 1.50, which works out to an intraday upswing of 130% and a two-day swing of 200%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CAT Breakout & More

PetMed Express, Inc. PETS

We signaled a longer-term options idea for PETS yesterday which needs some time to ripen, but with the solid move in the stock itself, we figured we’d recap its performance since our initial alert on it six weeks ago.

We caught PETS at a low of 32.90, which makes its 43% run to 46.94 this week that much more impressive. For a thirty-dollar stock to gain more than a third of its value in a matter of just a few weeks, is no small feat.

We’ll continue to keep our selected options, the PETS 11/17 $40-50 Calls on watch over the next few weeks.


Caterpillar, Inc. CAT

Speaking of high dollar stocks that we’ve alerted and then gone on to see impressive gains, we’ve got CAT in our sights again this morning after a solid earnings beat. We’re going to want to highlight some options ideas here as well, but first, let’s talk about the incredible bullish run of Caterpillar this year.

We were talking about this stock back in March, and that same month, the stock traded for as little as 90.34, and has essentially been in a continual uptrend ever since. Measured to this morning’s new premarket high of 141.98, it represents an increase of 57% in just over six months.

As for the options we’ll want to track on the heels of CAT’s earnings beat this morning, we’ll be looking at the CAT Weekly $136-141 Calls.


Atossa Genetics, Inc. ATOS

We’d also like to quickly recap the respectable intraday performance recorded by ATOS following our alert on the stock yesterday morning.

From an early low of .50, ATOS ran to .636 for a solid 27% move which came on more than three times the monthly average volume.

On a side note, the company has also announced that it will hold a conference call tomorrow morning at 10am EDT to discuss preliminary results from the Phase I study of its proprietary oral Endoxifen, an active metabolite of the FDA-approved breast cancer drug tamoxifen. The conference call will be available through a live webcast at www.atossagenetics.com so we’ll be sure to tune in for that.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: QURE Recap & More

uniQure N.V. QURE

We included QURE in our premarket report on Thursday, after the company’s hemophilia gene therapy treatment was advanced to Phase III testing.

What followed was an enormous influx of volume, and two really solid, bullish sessions, advancing from a low of 11.55 on Thursday to a new high of 19.34 on Friday. That works out to a very respectable two-day swing of 67%

It’s the highest PPS QURE has attained since 2015, and the two sessions come in at numbers 1 and 2 highest volume days of all time, so we’d say our alert was timed with absolute precision.


Organovo Holdings, Inc. ONVO

We included ONVO in Friday morning’s extended watchlist, and it also put up a pretty good performance on the day.

From a low of 1.45, the stock traded as high as 1.80 on fairly heavy volume. We’ll want to see the stock continue to establish higher highs and higher lows as it’s coming off of its bottom.


PetMed Express, Inc. PETS

We’d like to signal a post-earnings options idea for PETS this morning, after the company set new records with its Q2 numbers. It’s gapping up significantly in the premarket, and the volume it traded on Friday leading into the release was the highest all month.  We’re going to put the PETS 11/17 $40-50 Calls on watch moving forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RGSE Review & More

Real Goods Solar, Inc. RGSE

We put RGSE on watch in yesterday morning’s premarket watchlist, and it turned out to be the number one gainer of the day for us.

The stock traded in a range from 1.78 up to 3.25, for an intraday gain of 83% on immense volume of more than 410X the monthly average. It marked the second time this week that we caught a huge PR which rocketed a previously stagnant stock into the stratosphere, after seeing the same thing with ECYT on Monday.

The company entered into an exclusive license agreement with The Dow Chemical Company for the POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles system, an innovative and aesthetically pleasing solar shingle system developed by Dow. (>>View PR)

We’ll continue to keep an eye on this play and watch for the establishment of higher highs and higher lows in coming sessions.


Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ – Options Idea

We’ve been waiting for a solid earnings beat gapper, which is typically the type of play we look for with regard to quick strike options ideas. STZ fits the mold today, after posting enhanced profits and outlook this morning.

The stock has been in a general uptrend for the whole of 2017, trading in an upward channel and is presently gapping up to new all-time highs. The range of calls we’ll be tracking after what could very well be a classic dip-and-rip formation are going to be the STZ 10/20 $210-220 Calls. That gives us a couple weeks to potentially see one or more significant swing trade opportunities.
