Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BABA Review & More

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – Update

After noticing a strong double-bottom setup on the chart, we threw our hat in the ring with BABA yesterday morning by formulating an options idea to track during what we described as an overdue recovery.

The stock did exhibit the first signs of that recovery, thereby producing some nice single-session gain opportunities for ourselves and our readers. Our targeted options were the BABA 05/04 $180-187.50 Calls, and regardless of the strike price chosen within our designated range, notable able intraday profits were there for the taking.

$180 Calls – Range: 3.60-5.10  – Max Gain: 42%
$182.50 Calls – Range: 2.80-3.75 – Max Gain: 34%
$185 Calls – Range: 2.21-3.05 – Max Gain: 38%
$187.50 Calls – Range: 1.74-2.27 – Max Gain: 30%

There is, of course, plenty of time before these contracts expire, so we’ll continue monitor these ideas going forward in the event that BABA stock continues its rebounding ways. Further opportunities may arise and we’ll want to be ready.


Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. TNDM – Update

We also wanted to update everyone on another longer term idea we formulated that has definitely worked out in our favor. We’ve had a number of stocks that we signaled our interest in earlier in 2018 slowly and steadily make monster moves for us, and TNDM is the latest one.

We initially slated this play for observation In mid-January, and after only a slight consolidation at the beginning of February, the stock established support at a low of 2.14, reversed, and began a really impressive bull run that was amplified by a significant degree yesterday. TNDM ran to a new high of 7.22. That works out to a 237% increase here in the early goings of the 2018 calendar year.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HOME Recap & More

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – Options Idea

We’d like to start things off this morning by taking a look at BABA, which recently has formed a strong double-bottom setup on the chart. The stock is gapping up in premarket trading today, currently in the mid-$170′s and we’d like to formulate an extended term options idea to track over the next few weeks for an overdue recovery.

We’re going to zero in on the BABA 05/04 $180-187.50 Calls, which will give us plenty of time for the stock to realize the kind of gains that look very possible from a technical standpoint at this juncture.


At Home Group, Inc. HOME – Update

On the morning of March 23rd, we had selected a longer-term idea for the HOME options chain, and we wanted to take a look at the moves it has made in the three and a half weeks since that time.

Our target set of contracts was the HOME 04/20 $30 Calls, and with the stock surging to nearly $35 this week, those calls have been pushed well into the money and produced a heck of a gain opportunity. From the low shortly after our initial alert to a new high reach yesterday, we’ve seen a run from 1.31-5.50, which represents a chance at profits of up to 320%

Allergan plc AGN – Options Recap

After posting Q3 losses but still outpacing Wall Street’s expectations yesterday, was AGN. We noticed that, combined with the fact that the stock had just come off of a new 52-week low, and we pounced with a set of options ideas that all turned in incredible moves on the day.

It was the third time inside of the last week that one or more of our highlighted options contracts returned gains exceeded gains of a thousand percent in a single day! First it was Walgreens last Wednesday, followed by Walmart on Friday. Then yesterday, the AGN Weekly $175-180 Calls we signaled did it once again!

$175 Calls
– Range: .1.25-12 – Max Gain: 895%
$177.50 Calls – Range:  .78-10.80  – Max Gain: 1284%.
$180 Calls – Range: .53-8.54 – Max Gain: 1511%

A big pat on the back is in order for us, and huge cheers go out to any of our readers who were able to capitalize on our fantastic ideas!

Fresh Idea: Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA Weekly $187.50-195


Xunlei Ltd. XNET

We don’t want the fact that we’re providing mind-numbing gains via our options ideas to overshadow a great stock call we made on Monday of last week.

We signaled our interest in XNET, and on that morning the stock saw a low of 6.06, and hasn’t looked back since. Yesterday it ran all the way to a new high of 12.10, coming in just a hair under a double-bagger at 99% in a span of eight trading days.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Options Success & More

Huge Options Success

We went all-in on the options front on Friday, with both of our primary focal points being high-risk options plays, and the rewards were considerable. Both sets of ideas turned out to be successful, regardless of the strike prices chosen.

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd BABA – On Friday morning, we were just patting ourselves on the back for Thursday’s successful alert of the BABA Weekly $162.50-170 Calls which had provided some nice gain opportunities on the order of 119-311% Those figures were nice, but they paled in comparison to Friday’s performances. We did specify that we’d want to “continue to keep our eye on these plays to close out the week, as further increases are a possibility.”

“Further increases” may be the understatement of the year. Explosions would have been a more accurate term! Our highlighted range actually contained an ultra-rare FIFTY-bagger, so anyone who had been following our BABA options coverage had a chance to make a mint!

$244.50 Calls – Range: 2.00 – 6.95   – Max Gain: 247%
$245 Calls – Range: .53-4.41 – Max Gain: 732%
$245.50 Calls – Range: .10-2.18 – Max Gain: 2980%
$246 Calls – Range: .01-.51 – Max Gain: 5000%

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc  WMT – Our other options focus from Friday was for Walmart, with the WMT Weekly $79.50 & $80 Calls. An early run by the stock created the necessary volatility to push our ideas to multi-bag status inside of the first hour.

The $79.50 Calls were the big winner there, running from .19-.86 for an intraday pop of 353% The $80′s weren’t too far behind with a solid push from .15-.46; a gain of 207%


China Information Technology Inc. CNIT

We saw a wave of increased activity in several China-based plays on Friday, and CNIT is one among them that seems worthy for observation as we kick off another trading week this morning.

We like the chart setup- the stock had a really solid run from May to June after which there was a consolidation, and has recently been showing strength off of its established support in the mid-.80′s. There was also a recent bullish breach of the 50DMA.

The company will need to get and keep its shares above $1.00 to satisfy NASDAQ’s minimum bid requirements, and we think there’s a fair chance of that happening.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BABA Review & More

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd BABA – Options Review

We saw the contracts we highlighted yesterday morning in the BABA chain make solid multi-bag moves. The BABA Weekly $162.50-170 Calls were our targets, and each one took off for the following moves starting at around 10AM.

$244.50 Calls – Range: 2.58-5.65 – Max Gain: 119%
$245 Calls – Range: 1.26-3.50 – Max Gain: 171%
$245.50 Calls – Range: .52-1.79 – Max Gain: 244%
$246 Calls – Range: .18-.74 – Max Gain: 311%

We also want to continue to keep our eye on these plays to close out the week*, as further increases are a possibility. While BABA’s PPS tapered back into the close, we’re seeing yet another gap up in the premarket this morning.


Wal-Mart Stores, Inc  WMT

Despite seeing a pullback following its earnings report yesterday, WMT rebounded off of support and managed to close near its high of day and is up slightly in early trading this morning.

There may be an opportunity in the WMT Weekly $79.50 & $80 Calls* so we’ll have those on our radars as we wrap up another trading week.

*We don’t include mentions of weekly options contracts on a Friday without explicitly warning our readers every single time. Trading weekly options at the end of the week is an exceedingly risky proposition that should never be attempted by beginning or novice traders!
