Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Trades & More

More Winning Options Trades

We submitted a pair of daytrading ideas for the NVDA and ROKU options chains, and it’s no surprise that both ideas turned out to be winners for us. Our lack of shock stems from the fact that we have been absolutely crushing it when it comes to options. We always have solid success in this arena, but the past few weeks have been more loaded with huge gainers for us more than even we are accustomed to, and Friday continued that trend convincingly.

We had the NVIDIA Corp. – NVDA Weekly $205-212.50 Calls as well as the Roku, Inc. – ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls on watch for the day, and there wasn’t a single contract contained within either of those ranges that didn’t provide us with some really nice chances for big gains. Those were as follows:

NVDA Weekly $205-212.50 Calls
$205 Calls – Range: 7.50-13.59 – Max Gain: 81%
$207.50 Calls – Range: 5.55-11.06 – Max Gain: 99%
$210 Calls – Range: 3.65-8.60 – Max Gain: 136%
$212.50 Calls – Range: 1.90-7.22 – Max Gain: 280%

ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls
$28 Calls – Range: 2.60-8.00 – Max Gain: 207%
$29 Calls – Range: 1.90-7.22 – Max Gain: 280%
$30 Calls – Range: 1.10-6.50 – Max Gain: 491%


JB&ZJMY Holding Company, Inc. JBZY

We also want to make note of JBZY, which has a pretty good chart setup at the moment. The stock was trending up off of its 50DMA throughout last week, and is sitting at .08 currently.

With a recent run to .16 showing us what this play is capable of in just a short time, we’ll go ahead and put it on watch as we start off a new trading week. As we’ve pointed out on the snapshot below, another bullish cross looks inevitable for the MACD.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MRTX Recap & More

 Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. MRTX

After reporting positive cancer trial results on Friday, we talked about MRTX being poised for a big move and we weren’t incorrect.

The stock exploded out of the gate right from the outset, and traded in an impressive range from 9.15 to 12.40 early on in the day. That was good for a 35% intraday run- excellent for a $9+ stock. This is the third time in as many weeks we’ve called a stock that was approaching the ten dollar range and saw it gain more than a third in value in a single session.

Not only did MRTX trade up big on many times more thanits average volume, but it managed to maintain well over half of its daily advance, so we’ll be interested to continue monitoring its activity as we kick off a fresh trading week.


Iconic Brands, Inc. ICNB

We want to place ICNB on bottom-watch after taking a look at the recent history of the chart. This stock exhibits some really nice volatility and is coming down off of a significant spike.

When it finds support and rebounds, we could see a notable swing trade opportunity. The last such swing took the stock from the .003 range to .014.

The company recently announced its brand of Prosecco endorsed by former supermodel Christie Brinkley would be carried by Publix stores, so we’ll also be looking for further updates on that part of the story as well.


Pluristem Therapeutics, Inc. PSTI

We tagged PSTI for observation roughly a month ago, and have since seen a moderate move up on the chart, and will want to continue monitoring the situation.

The run the stock has made thus far is a marginal 27%, but things this morning have taken an interesting turn as the company announced the FDA granted fast track status to one of its treatments.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Updates

FutureLand Corp. FUTL

After already showing us a multi-bag swing from our initial alert on Friday to new highs on Monday, FUTL put up another solid performance yesterday. The stock traded in an intraday range from .0024 in the morning, and edged it way up all day to hit a new high of .0037 shortly before 2PM. That works out to a 54% push on the day, accompanied by roughly six times the monthly average volume.  .

From our observed low of .0012 on Friday, the stock has now managed a three-session swing amounting to 308% and will hold our interest as long as it continues to register higher base levels of support.


Apple, Inc. AAPL  – Options Recap

We figured to take advantage for the hype surrounding Apple for its big iPhone 8/X event, and there was enough price action and volatility throughout the day so as to present two separate opportunities for intraday swing trades.

We were looking at the AAPL Weekly $160 & $162.50 Calls, each of which exhibited the same pattern of an early run, followed by a dip-and-rip for a secondary move in the afternoon.

The $160′s first ran from 2.44-4.58 (+88%), and then from 1.07-1.98 (+85%), while the $162.50′s traded from 1.29-2.77 (+115%) initially, followed by a later move from .45-.80 (+78%). All in all, some nice activity for our first AAPL calls in quite some time.


 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL

Drawing us to CBRL this morning is a solid setup on the chart with the stock having recently reversed off of a bottom, in conjuction with a premarket earnings beat.  This is just the sort of scenario we’re always scanning for, and in this instance, we’re going to formulate both a shorter and longer-term options idea.

We’re going to place the CBRL Weekly $150 & 151.50 Calls as well as the 10/20 $155 Calls on watch in the days and week ahead.


Honorable Mentions:

Forterra, Inc. FRTA – After tagging FRTA in Friday’s premarket report, we’ve seen a pretty nice uptrend from the stock. It’s traded up from 3.66 to 5.25, a move of 43% We’ll want to continue to monitor its activity as we head through midweek.

Quotient Ltd. QTNT - We had QTNT in yesterday’s watchlist, and want to continue to track it after it made a similar move.  Also from a low of 3.66, QTNT saw a subsequent high of 5.14, which comes out to an intraday pop of 40%
