Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Quick Strike Ideas

India Globalization Capital, Inc. IGCC

First up this morning is a recap of IGCC following its inclusion in our premarket extended watchlist yesterday. The stock didn’t blow its lid, but it did continue the solid run of intraday performances off of its lows from earlier this week which were precipitated by the company’s recent delisting from the NASDAQ down to the OTC Markets.

The stock traded in a range from 1.22-1.84 before tapering back off, which stood as an intraday gain of 51% We’re going to look for IGCC to continue to fill the remaining gap on the chart. As you can see on the included snapshot, the MACD is also beginning to converge toward a bullish cross.




Fresh Options Ideas*:

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA - After beating on earnings and missing on revenues, BABA surged this morning, making it our prime bullish target among companies that reported their quarterly earnings today. We’re going to focus on the BABA Weekly 152.50-160 Calls*.
_____

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – We’ve had some good luck with the SPY this week, which isn’t all that surprising when considering the fact that we have a long documented history of success with this fund. We’re so deep in the money with our previously targeted calls, that we’re going to go ahead and roll up our potential strike prices to the SPY Weekly $274.50-276 Calls* as we close out the week.
_____

Weight Watchers International, Inc. WTW – Strangely enough, despite also beating on earnings and missing on revs like the aforementioned play, WTW took a gut punch and appears on track for a bearish session. We’re going to be tracking the WTW Weekly $58.50-56.50 Puts* as a result.

Bonus Idea: AMD Weekly $20-21 Calls*

*NEVER trade weekly options on a Friday unless you’re an expert level trader with disposable funds!

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%
