Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CVS Options & More

CVS Health Corp CVS

First up this morning, we’re taking a look at CVS, which is currently boasting an interesting chart setup along with a recent analyst upgrade.

The stock recently ran to an area of previous resistance near $84, and is currently down in the premarket along with the markets in general, but we’re going to be looking for a recovery.

As you can see on the annotated chart below, there appears to be an impending Golden Cross, with the 50DMA rising toward the 200DMA, and with the company’s quarterly earnings call slated for February 8th, we’re going to signal some options that could see some nice activity.

We’re going to radar the CVS 02/09 $77-80 Calls which will expire at the end of next week, and could explode with a favorable quarterly report.


Ballard Power Systems, Inc. BLDP – Update

We couldn’t have timed yesterday morning’s call of BLDP any better, outlining the reasons we thought the stock was ripe for a reversal. Among other things, it had strung together ten consecutive sessions of decreases or sideways trading, and yesterday brought the beginning of the rebound that we suspected was due.

From an early low of 3.39, BLDP made a modest, yet convincing move of 19% to a high of 4.04, before closing very near to the high of day at 4.02. It’s a good start, and we’ll want to see the stock continue to record higher highs and higher lows, and show some signs of sustaining its momentum.

Adding to the possibility of a continued uptrend is a PR regarding the company’s Protonex subsidiary this morning outlining a government purchase order of $1.6M for its power management systems for special operations military equipment.(>>View PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INTC Recap & More

Intel Corp. INTC

On Friday morning, we saw serious potential in the INTC options chain following the company’s earning beat. They posted solid figures, but some were concerned over the possible security flaws prsent in the company’s new chips. Those fears were shrugged off with ease, as the stock took off for what ultimately turned out to be an exceptionally bullish session.

The move INTC made allowed for the chance at some really nice intraday profits in each of the three contracts we designated in Friday morning’s report, the INTC Weekly $47.50-48.50 Calls.

$47.50 Calls – Range: .75-2.50 – Max Gain: 233%
$48 Calls – Range: .43-1.99 – Max Gain: 362%
$48.50 Calls – Range: .25-1.50 – Max Gain: 500%


Ballard Power Systems, Inc. BLDP – Bottom-Watch

We’re always looking for a good bottom play, and one may be getting ready to present itself in the near future on BLDP. We want to place the stock on intensive bottom-watch in coming sessions, after it appears that BLDP has been the target of manipulative short-seller tactics, including a very likely erroneous class action ‘investigation’ and suit by multiple law firms. We see this type of thing all the time, and very seldom does anything come of such a situation.

What we do have is a stock that has been severely abused, beaten back to a previous multiple bottom of strong support. In a PR published today, the company has refuted the claims of its accusers, while adding that it expects to report record financials for fiscal 2017 presently. (>>View PR)

We’ll be sure to monitor BLDP for a bottom bounce which should be forthcoming at any time, and the subsequent rebound to follow, which could bring us a shot at considerable gains from current levels.

Side Note: We also want to radar Plug Power, Inc. PLUG, as it tends to trade very similarly to BLDP. We’ve traditionally looked at these plays in tandem, so we’ll keep watch over PLUG as well as it comes down to find its own bottom.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LINU Recap & More

LiNiu Technology Group, Inc. LINU

We’re going to start things off today by providing an update on our coverage of a really nice move in LINU subsequent to our most recent alert on the stock from the morning of September 11th.

We observed a low of 1.05, and after a huge run on Friday, LINU reached as high as 3.20. It represents a very nice 205% move for us in under a month’s time. Volume over the saem period has been extremely elevated, and Friday’s session logged the highest single day volume in the history of the stock.


Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ – Options Update

After Constellation put out solid earnings and guidance on Thursday morning we highlighted our interest in the STZ 10/20 $210-220 Calls and they produced intraday gains of 84-142%

We reported this in Friday’s newsletter, mentioning that further opportunities could be on the horizon and we did see some good action for that session as well.

The $210′s traded in a daily range from 1.85-2.85 (+54%), the $215′s went from .65-1.05 (+62%), and the $220′s made a push from .25-.38 (+52%).

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NIHD Review & More

NII Holdings, Inc. NIHD

We initially tagged NIHD in our premarket report from last Thursday, and on that day we would observe a low of .5472 in the stock. It’s been stepping its way up, but this morning in premarket trading things have really kicked into high gear, with NIHD cracking through the dollar barrier.

As of this morning’s premarket high of 1.14, we’ve now witnessed an increase of 108% in NIHD over a span of just three trading sessions. In order for us to remain highly interested in this play, we’ll want to see it maintain support at or above its current 50DMA of .83 on any pullbacks that may occur.


Celsion Corp. CLSN

We called out CLSN in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and saw a modest yet respectable move out of that play as well. From a low of 3.85 the stock ran as high as 4.96, marking an intraday move of 29%

The stock was number four on the NASDAQ’s top gainer list for the day, and while it did end up tapering back to close near its daily lows, this morning it is gapping up again in the premarket. This surge of activity is primarily due to yesterday’s announcement of positive results in its ovarian cancer treatment trials.

We’ll definitely be keeping CLSN on our radars and watching for the continued establishment of higher lows off of our recently observed bottom.


Bitcoin Services, Inc. BTSC

BTSC was a part of the bitcoin watchlist we issued on May 25th in the midst of a bitcoin frenzy where the crypto-currency was soaring to new all-time highs.

The residual effect for plays like BTSC has been impressive, with with stocks PPS making a jump from our observed low of  .0366 up to a new high of .164 yesterday, which represents a 348% rip which occurred over a period of just seven sessions.


Egalet Corp. EGLT

Not only is EGLT coming off of a bottom on the chart, but in the space of the past 36 hours, the company has made two major announcements.

Yesterday, it was made known that EGLT had “received a U.S. patent for its proprietary Guardian™ Technology tablet architecture used to create precise delivery of combination products with immediate-, delayed- and/or extended-release properties.” (>>View PR)

Today, the announcement was that “one of the largest payers in the United States will provide coverage of ARYMO® ER (morphine sulfate) extended-release tablets” (>>View PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FPVD Breaks Out & More

Force Protection Video Equipment Corp. FPVD

We were just mentioning how we wanted to stay on FPVD’s trail yesterday morning, after the stock had shown us a nice 64% move on Tuesday.

We identified .036 as a key point of resistance that we wanted to see broken, and not only did that happen, but the stock smashed through and kept on running to an impressive new high.

It traded in a range from .022 on up to a nickel, for an intraday gain of 127% which occurred on roughly 7 times the three-month average volume. From our observed low on Tuesday, it represented a session-over-session swing of 198%

The previous resistance we mentioned at .036 will now be the level FPVD will need to hold support at or above in order to maintain our attention going forward.


Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. WMT – Options Idea

We’ve had some excellent fortune recently with earnings-related options plays in the retail sector, and the opportunity to take advantage of yet another one may be ready to present itself today in the form of WMT.

Increased revenue for the quarter has led the retail giant to increase guidance for the remainder of the year, and the news is causing a notable gap-up here in the premarket. As the activity unfolds, we’ll be looking to possibly take advantage of WMT Weekly $73.50-76 Calls.
