PCT Ltd. PCTL – Recap

We tracked PCTL to some pretty impressive gains following our initial alert on the play just under two weeks ago. We continued tagging it in our extended watchlist into this week, and after a brief consolidation, we observed more bullish activity out of the stock.

On Wednesday, PCTL dipped to a low of .0095, very briefly existing as a subpenny play once again, before making its next move. That led to a high of .02 yesterday, which represents a two-day swing of 111%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Recap & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Recap
-
The recent continual trend of bullish days for the markets ended abruptly yesterday following the Fed’s interest rate cut, however, our AAPL Calls still provided an opportunity for us in the early goings on the session.

We signaled our interest in the AAPL Weekly $215-220 Calls in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and inside the first half hour of trading, the following upward moves were recorded by those three sets of contracts:

AAPL Weekly $215-220 Calls 
$215 Calls – Range: 2.64-6.84 – Max Gain: 60%
$217.50 Calls – Range: 1.57-4.80 – Max Gain: 206%

BYND Weekly $180-170 Puts



T2 Biosystems, Inc. TTOO

We’re always scanning for a good rebound candidate, and that’s what we found in TTOO this morning. The stock is sniffing out a bottom, and has just fallen off of an absolute cliff. Now with a massive gap to the upside and considerable volatility potential, we’re going to begin monitoring it for its ultimate bottom and eventual recovery.

TTOO is egregiously oversold, sitting at an annual low, and could be just days away from a convincing turnaround. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for just such an event.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Calls, More Options

SPY Review

After big success with SPY options earlier last week, we decided to roll up our strike prices and make another pass at an some options ideas on the fund to open things up this week. A reversal on plans to slap tariffs on Mexican goods is helping to fuel a push for the markets in early trading today.

Our ideas for Friday were the SPY Weekly $285-286 Calls, and we’re happy to report some huge single session, multibag gain opportunities came out of those calls for us.

$285 Calls – Range: 1.18-3.86 – Max Gain: 227%
$286 Calls – Range: .59-2.89. – Max Gain: 393%

In order to stay close to the action, we’re going to want to stick with bullish SPY calls and roll up our strike prices yet again to kick off a new trading week this morning. We’re going to radar the SPY Weekly $288-290 Calls.


MGM Resorts International Inc. MGM – Form-4 Alert 

We always scan for new Form-4 submissions, and MGM is the latest subject of insider trading. A director of the company purchased over $20M in MGM stock three separate times last week. Between the buying from Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, Keith Meister purchased in excess of $75M+ worth of his company’s shares.

That is no small series of transactions, and leads us to believe confidence on the inside at MGm is high that the stock can continue recover off of its recent relative lows. We’re going to signal some longer term calls to correspond with the situation and begin tracking the MGM 08/16 $28-30 Calls.


SPECIAL NOTE: 

We urge readers not to miss out on any of our newsletters this week. We’ve got some plays in cannabis sector that are primed to heat up and we’ll be bringing those to you over the course of the week. You’ll definitely want to catch those, so make sure you’re scanning your inboxes each morning to get in on the action!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LAHO Recap & More

Lans Holdings, Inc. LAHO

When we picked up on LAHO on Tuesday, it was what we refer to as a super-subpenny stock, trading at a low of just .0005/share. Over the past two sessions it has made an incredible move. Yesterday, after gapping up in the morning, LAHO went on to set a new high of .0017, which works out to a 48-hour swing of 240%

Following that high, the stock came back down to fill the gap it left, and we are going to want to see .0009 hold as support in order to give us a good likelihood of seeing further moves from LAHO in the near-term, but as it currently stands, it has already been a great intraweek play for us no matter how you slice it.


FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS

We’ve also got a pair of options ideas from companies that have untraded-upon earnings reports. We’re bearish on Palo Alto Networks, which reported yesterday post-market, and bullish on Dollar General, whose report dropped this morning in the premarket, including a solid beat on both earnings and same-store sales for the quarter.

PANW $202.50-200 Puts
DG $122-124 Calls
