Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Movers

Options Updates: 

We’re going to start out this morning by going over some recent extended term options ideas we’ve had and the success they’re enjoying after Friday’s market rebound from Wednesday’s big dip. We are also seeing the makings of a continuation of Friday’s momentum today, so we expect to see the gains listed on our ideas to below to be expanded with another bullish session. 

Agilent technologies, Inc. A – Our timing with Agilent couldn’t have been much better, citing the A 9/20 $65-70 Calls as our area of interest on Wednesday. The recovery that would follow for stocks in general would  help push those targets to some extremely solid intraweek runs.

$65 Calls – Range: 3.50-6.71 – Max Gain: 92%
$67.50 Calls – Range: 2.30-4.48  – Max Gain: 95%
$70 Calls – Range: 1.35-2.80 – Max Gain: 107%

Briggs & Stratton Corp. BGG

We want to close things out this week by commenting on Briggs & Stratton’s gap down to its lowest PPS since the the early 1990′s. While it may see more short term losses first, we still want to radar this as a bottom-watch play.
