Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BABA Options & More

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd BABA – Options

To kick off this brand new trading week, we are interested in tracking a range of calls in the BABA chain, after shares dipped on the news that co-Founder Jack Ma will be stepping down and handing full control over to the CEO effect next year.

The reactionary selloff may provide us with some solid options trading chances, so we are going to keep an eye on the BABA 10/12 $165 & 167.50 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.


OPKO Health Inc. OPK

Shares of OPK took a bath on Friday, briefly falling below the stock’s 200DMA, and closing well in the red on the day. We’re going to signal our interest in tracking OPK as a bottom-watch play.

The stock is approaching extremely oversold territory, and in the midst of its downturn we observed some Form-4 submissions, with insiders buying up shares on Friday as the bottom fell out.

That suggests a confidence that it may not have much further to fall, so we will want to hang around as OPK searches for a bottom and solid rebound point.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TGT Review & More


Target Corp. TGT

For a fresh set of options ideas yesterday morning, we had signaled the TGT Weekly $87.50-89 Calls for observation after the company recorded its best quarterly figures in a decade.

Despite posting a red candle on the day, the early activity in the stock was sufficient to provide our selected options contracts with the juice to make some respectable intraday rips.

$87.50 Calls – Range: .70-1.50 – Max Gain: 114%
$88 Calls – Range: .55-1.22 – Max Gain: 122%
$88.50 Calls – Range: .43-.95 – Max Gain: 121%
$89 Calls – Range: .14-.40 – Max Gain: 186%

FRESH IDEAS:

We’ll continue to stick with big name earnings plays as long as they’re on the table. Earnings related options trading has become our bread and butter, and for good reason. As TGT proved yesterday, we don’t even need for these stocks to close in the green to give us what we’re looking for- all we need is the right early morning activity.

Today we’ve got a pair of fresh ideas that also just reported earnings. We’re going to be monitoring the Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA Weekly $180-185 Calls, and the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. WSM 09/21 $67.50 & $70 Calls.

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.
