Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EL Options & More

Stock Updates

A couple of stock calls we brought up in December have gotten off to a great start to 2019. We wanted to kick off this morning’s report by updating readers on the excellent upswings we’ve witnessed.

Cronos Group, Inc. CRON

We were just talking about CRON yesterday morning, and it gave such a solid intraday performance, that we need to come back and update on it already. Our initial alert, of course, came on December 7th, after which time the stock was trading for as little as 9.56. Yesterday the stock streaked to a new high of 25.10, representing a move of 163% in just over 7 weeks.

General Electric Co. GE

It was just a week later on December 13 that we called GE to watch for a bottom, which came in shortly thereafter at 6.77-10.77. The stock recently hit 10.77, which marked a 6-week increase of 59% The RSI just cracked into the power zone, and a run at the 200DMA (currently 11.53) is not out of the question in the days or weeks ahead.


Sysco Corp. SYY

Our fresh options ideas from yesterday morning was to track the SYY Weekly $65-66 Calls, and all of those contracts provided very nice intraday chances for profits. We have been knocking our options plays out of the park for weeks now, and this was just the next link in the chain on what has become a top-notch performance for options plays in the whole of 2019 thus far.

Fresh Idea:
EL Weekly $145-150 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CRON Review & More

Cronos Group, Inc. CRON

The last time we mentioned CRON was back on December 7th, and to kick things off this week we wanted to point out the fantastic run the stock has been on since then, even through the tumultuous end to 2018 and beginning of 2019 that was experienced by most stocks.

Subsequent to the time of our last alert, CRON was trading as low as 9.56, and the run it’s gone on since then has been incredible. It hasn’t really experienced any kind of downtrend since the week of Christmas, and on Friday, reached a new high of 21.79. That works out to a very respectable five week swing amounting to 128% For a nearly ten-dollar stock that’s an absolutely fantastic run. We’ve seen it inch higher in the premarket today, so we’ll definitely allow CRON to continue to keep its spot on watchlist.

Exxon Mobil Corp. XOM – Review

One of our fresh ideas from Friday morning’s report was the XOM Weekly $73.50-75 Calls
and we are pleased to recall the excellent performance those contracts posted on the day.

It continued a trend of multi-bag options winners that had started well before last week for us. Practically everything we’ve touched in 2019 with regard to earnings related options ideas has gone through the roof. The potential gains there for the taking were as follows:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Wrapping Up the Short Week

Before we close out this 3-and-a-half day week, we’d like to take this opportunity to say, we hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday! We’re thankful for having such a great audience of faithful readers! You folks are the reason we get out of bed each day to provide our best insights and ideas on stocks, funds, and options! Cheers to you and yours!


 
Omni Health, Inc. OMHE

We included OMHE as a part of our extended watchlist on Wednesday morning, and the stock followed that up with a respectable performance on the day, despite a very quiet session, as is to be expected just preceding a holiday.

OMHE traded in a range from a low of .026 to a subsequent high of .038, which worked out to an intraday gain of 46% and it came on relatively heavy volume to the tune of nearly six times the monthly average.

Our timing in mentioning this play for the first time ever on Wednesday, was as good as can be, as the stock surged to a new annual high on the day. For these reasons, we’ll be sure to leave this play on our radar in sessions to come.

In an added note, Omni Health is actually a spinoff of a cannabis stock that we have mentioned in the past- MCIG.


Cannabis Roundup

Speaking of cannabis plays, we’ve continued to track the sector on the heels of this month’s elections, as was our intent. On the whole,  activity has been more subdued than expected due to a number of other hot-button areas that have enjoyed good performance, such as the shipping sector boom that we took advantage of a couple of weeks ago.

That being said, we are still as interested as ever in the marijuana space, and many of the plays we’ve been monitoring in that area put up solid numbers just prior to the holiday hiatus, so we just want to provide a quick update on the kind of intraday gains that were made possible:

Medical Marijuana, Inc. MJNA – Range: .083-.115 – Max Gain: 59%

Marijuana Co. of America, Inc. MCOA – Range: .0251-.0575 – Max Gain: 129%

American Cannabis Co. Inc. AMMJ – Range: .461-.8689 – Max Gain: 88%

Vape Holdings, Inc. VAPE – Range: .0058-.0115 – Max Gain: 98%

As always, we’ll remind everyone to keep a general watch over any and all pot plays, as you see the level of opportunity that the sector continues to bring to the table.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GEO Options on a Roll & More


The GEO Group, Inc. – Options Review

GEO has earned itself top billing in our report for the second day running, as the stock continued its rebound yesterday, reaching new highs, and pushing our options ideas deeper into the money. Despite multi-bag gains on Friday, we reasserted our interest in continuing to follow them, and it was definitely the right move.

The GEO 09/16 $20 and 22.50 Calls were the targets we introduced on Friday morning, and our observed gains were extended by a healthy margin yesterday as GEO rose to a high of $25 even during the session.

The $20 Calls traded in a range from 4.00 up to 5.12, an intraday swing of 28% and an total two-day increase over our observed low of 1.61 amounting to 211%

The $22.50 Calls traded up from 2.25 to 3.05 running 36% intraday, and representing an overall increase of 251% from Friday’s low of .87.

As we stated yesterday, these ideas should remain good for as long as GEO sustains this strong rebound pattern.


Best Buy Co. Inc. BBY – Fresh Idea

BBY is flying high in the premarket this morning in the wake of its earnings release which contained a major increase in same-store sales for the quarter.

With the type of activity we’re witnessing early on this morning, we’re going to want to signal a range of options calls to observe here as well. Our specific contracts of interest are going to be the BBY Weekly 36.50-39 Calls, which will hold our interest provided that BBY maintains support in the low $36-range on any pullbacks.


First Acceptance Corp. FAC – Bottom-Watch

We’re going to take this opportunity to declare a bottom-watch for FAC, which is currently feeling out its lowest prices in a month after peeling back off of a massive run in late July.

On the chart below, we’ve highlighted the channel between recent swing lows at 1.01 and 1.15 as the area where we’d like to see a bottom-bounce occur, and we’ll have FAC on our radars in the days ahead for the possibility of that occurring.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Plays, Fresh Options Ideas & More

Options Ideas

The first thing we want to do this morning is provide an options update on the idea we submitted in yesterday morning’s premarket report, as well as furnish a new idea on another interesting prospect.

Bank of America Corp. BAC - Our targeted BAC 07/15 $15 Calls didn’t exactly knock our socks off, but still recorded a notable intraday upswing. We watched as they traded up from a low of .27 to a high of .34; a modest but respectable gain of 26% We’ll be sure to leave a slot on our watch-screens reserved for those contracts with more than a month remaining until their expiration.

______

Fresh Idea: Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. HTZ – Last week, billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn made a sizable increase to his already huge position in HTZ, to the tune of roughly $9.6M added at prices just below $10, making him a 15.24% stakeholder. The stock has been performing exceedingly well since the transactions went public.

We’ve benefited greatly from following Icahn’s money in the past, and want to tag some HTZ Calls for tracking on the chance that it could happen again. Our targets are going to be the HTZ Weekly $11 & $11.50 Calls.


Energy Sector Ideas

Stone Energy Corp. SGY – Is looking strong in premarket trading today. The stock recently set a new 52-week low approximately three weeks back, and has made a couple of nice moves off of that bottom since then.

We’re interested in tracking the activity in this play in sessions to come, especially granted the fact that it will be undergoing a 10-for-1 reverse split, effective as of Monday’s opening bell.

______

Rex Energy Corp. REXX - This stock has been in a similar position on its own chart, making good strides off of recently-registered relative lows, and has actually breached its 50DMA (.85) in early trading this morning. The next patch of resistance is likely to arise in the channel between 1.20 and the 200DMA of 1.45.


Baristas Coffee Co., Inc.  BCCI

Lastly,  a quick recap of BCCI’s performance yesterday after appearing in our premarket report. From a low of .06, we observed the stock trade up to a high of .08; an intraday move of 33%

This is another stock that recorded new 52-week lows toward the end of May, and has followed up with solid moves up off of that bottom. We’ll continue to keep an eye on the activity in this play.
