Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY, SPOT Calls

OPTIONS RECAP

We had a number of options contracts that we were tracking on Friday, and ended up having good fortune with two out of the three sets that we were watching. Both the SPY and Ford enjoyed bullish intraday moves after the markets themselves fell briefly first thing in the morning, followed by an entire day of ascent and a very strong close. Here are the highest possible gains that could have been achieved on the back of our ideas.

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $291.50-292 Calls
$291.50 Calls – Range:
.45-1.91  – Max Gain: 324%
$2292 Calls – Range: .26-1.49 – Max Gain: 473%

Ford Motor Co. F Weekly $9.50-10 Calls

$9.50 Calls – Range: .45-.95 – Max Gain: 111%
$10 Calls – Range: .07-.46  – Max Gain: 557%

It finished out one heck of a trading week for our options calls, of which we had at least seven separate sets of ideas that produced multi-bag gain opportunities, as you are welcome to confirm in our archives.

FRESH IDEA: Based on the nature of Friday’s market activity, including that very strong close, we are going to bank on another session of bullish activity for the markets at large, and put the SPY 04/29(today) $292.50-293.50 Calls on watch.
_____

Bonus Idea: SPOT Weekly $140-142 Calls



Axsome Therapeutics, Inc. AXSM

We designated AXSM as a stock to watch in our report on March 26th, and after one full month of trading, we wanted to return to review its performance over that span.

From its low following our alert, which came in at 12.76, the stock has cruised steadily up to Friday’s new high of 18.13. That represented a one month upswing amounting to a total move of 42%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Stock Updates

Catalyst Pharma Inc. CPRX

We saw a very impressive new high for a stock that we’ve been tracking off of a bottom since February 8th. CPRX traded for as little as 2.36 that day, and has never looked back, spending most of the 7 weeks since then in a general uptrend that really kicked into high gear yesterday.

The stock ultimately reached 5.25 before closing just a penny below that point. That works out to an upswing of 122% in well under two months’ time.


Axsome Therapuetics, Inc. AXSM 

Speaking of stock runners, we called out AXSM for observation just last Thursday, and wanted to drop back in on it to comment regarding its performance thus far. From a low of 11.75 on Thursday morning, the stock has now reached as high as 16.38. That’s a relatively modest but still very respectable gain of 39% in a span of just three sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NTNX Update & More

Nutanix, Inc. NTNX

We began highlighting NTNX just a week ago in our report from the morning of March 12th. On that day the stock saw a low of 35.20, as we signaled the NTNX 05/19 $40-42.50 Calls for longer-term observation.

We wanted to provide an update on both the stock and our options targets this morning, as NTNX has produced a very solid and steady uptrend since the morning of our initial alert. Yesterday, NTNX ran to a new high of 42.21. That marked a 1-week increase of 20% and it allowed for some nice moves in our highlighted contracts.

The $40 Calls have thus far traded in a range from 1.96 to 4.20 for a gain of 114% while the $42.50′s ran from 1.21-2.85, an increase of 136% NTNX is only halfway to filling the topside gap on itas chart, and there’s plenty of time remaining until expiration. We’ll be interested to see if the stock can pile on even more gains.

Blue Horseshoe Srocks: More PBR Success

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR – Recap

After doing quite well with some PBR options to close out last week, we decided to update our idea to some weekly calls for this week yesterday morning, as we rolled up our strike range to the PBR Weekly $14.50-15.50 Calls.

With the head of steam that PBR has been building over the past several sessions, it came as no surprise to see our fresh ideas flourish as well. All three sets of contracts produced solid single session gains to start off the week:

$14.50 Calls – Range: .50-.91 – Max Gain: 82%
$15 Calls – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 148%
$15.50 Calls – Range: .11-.30 – Max Gain: 173%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh PBR Options & More

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR – Recap

One of the ideas we had formulated toward the end of last week was the PBR Weekly $14 & 14.50 Calls. We mentioned in Friday morning’s premarket report that we expected the already solid gains we had seen the previous session to be expanded upon, and our assumption was accurate.

We saw epic new highs out of both of our tracked sets of contracts. The $14 Calls from our observed low of .21 on Thursday, saw a new high of .78 Friday for a two-day run of 271% The $14.50′s, which we had caught at a low of .05, ran to .29 for an impressive 480% move over the same span.

Updated Idea:
We’re going to update our idea to some weekly calls for this week and roll up our strike range. Provided PBR can hold its 50DMA of 14.32, we’ll be looking to the PBR Weekly $14.50-15.50 Calls.



Extended Watchlist Recaps:

We’ve been doing things the same way for several years now, issuing our daily ‘Extended Watchlist’ for ideas that don’t get featured, but are stil noteworthy enough to keep watch over. Two such plays that we’ve recently signaled came away from last week with some decent progress.

Epizyme, Inc. EPZM – EPZM was included in Friday’s extended watchlist and it had a very nice intraday push, helped along by solid jobs numbers which led to a good day for the markets as a whole. EPZM traded in a range from 6.40 up to 8.19, a solid 28% jump.

Scientific Games Corp. SGMS – On December 14th we included SGMS in our premarket report, and it has made steady and significant headway since that time, trading up from a low of 14.79 to a new high of 19.43 on Friday. A 31% move in a stock in this price range is a pretty darn good move through a few weeks of the holiday season.  We’ll continue to keep an eye on this, which has become a solid momentum mover.
