Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Big Winners

The Estee Lauder Companies Inc. EL – Recap

At this point, mentioning that our most recent fresh options idea turned in a great performance seems to be a foregone conclusion. Nearly everything we’ve touched in 2019 with respect to earnings related options ideas has turned to gold.

EL is just the next link in that chain of premium options tradings ideas we’ve delivered to our readers so far this. It was a new idea for yesterday morning’s premarket report, the EL Weekly $145 & $150 Calls,  and both of those strike points produced big-time single-session gains.

The $145′s ran 128% from 5.28 to 12.00, while the $150′s exploded from a low of 1.99 and hit 7.50, for potential intraday profits of up to 276%

Fresh Idea:
GSK Weekly $39.50-40.50 Calls
GM Weekly $39-41 Calls


Travena, Inc. TRVN

We also want to review a call we made on a stock at the end of 2018 that has found success in the early goings of 2019. We highlighted TRVN for observation in our report dated December 28th, and that day, the stock was trading for as little as .40, and it would never fall lower.

The reached .60 around the halfway point through January, and last week, exactly a month following our tag, TRVN kicked into high gear, reaching 1.45; an increase of 263% over our observed low from the morning of our initial alert.

The stock is currently flirting with its 200DMA, and if it can break previous resistance around the 1.50 area, there is a massive gap to the upside. Things could get even more interesting from there.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Highs for RIOT & More


AT&T, Inc. ATT

We signaled a range of  ATT calls (Nov 9th) to track on a extended term basis, the ATT 01/19 $34-36 Calls, and those contracts have increased considerably, with a bullish trend from T persisting over the past few weeks.

The stock surged to its highest price per share since early October during yesterday’s session, which caused impressive new highs in our targeted contracts. The range of potential gains so far are as follows:

$34 Calls – Range: .91-4.18 – Max Gain: 359%
$35 Calls – Range: .53-3.30– Max Gain: 523%
$36 Calls – Range: 37-2.36 – Max Gain: 438%


Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

As we mentioned in yesterday morning’s premarket report, we were interested to see if RIOT could re-test and possibly breach its previous highs, even though we had already seen two significant swings.

The stock ended up behaving just as we suspected it might, gapping up to open higher than those previous marks, at 25.00, and running to a new high of 33.27 for an intraday rise of 33%, an excellent single session move for a stock in this price range.   We began tracking RIOT on November 2nd at a low of 6.33, and from there, yesterday’s peak pricing represents an upswing of 426% inside of 6 weeks!


Tenet Healthcare Corp. THC

On Monday morning, we signaled THC for observation as the stock appeared to be ripe for continuing its recent bottom-bounce. We mentioned yesterday that the stock was showing signs of a gap up and possible continued upward momentum, and we were spot on in our assessment.

From its low on Monday to yesterday’s high, THC has thus far made a move of 14% from 13.33-15.26, and while that has not facilitated big gains in the range of options we initially selected (01/26 $13.50-14.50 Calls), we expect to see that change if the stock can maintain its recent rebound over a more sustained period of time,.

We’re coming back to ATOS for the third consecutive day this week, after our initial alert in Monday’s report, and on that morning we observed a low of .50, followed by a modest but solid run 27% to .636.

We mentioned this yesterday morning, subsequent to which point the stock launched into another bullish session. dwarfing Monday’s performance. It traded from a low of .65 right at the outset, to an afternoon high of 1.50, which works out to an intraday upswing of 130% and a two-day swing of 200%

We were also reminding readers of the conference call the company has scheduled for 10AM this morning at www.atossagenetics.com.

Caterpillar, Inc. CAT

Our post-earnings beat options ideas for CAT yesterday morning were the CAT Weekly $136-141 Calls. While every set of contracts did see upward movement, we’re only going to list the numbers for the $136-138′s, as the gains in the $139-141′s were minimal by comparison. We did however, see two separate chances for swing trades on the day.

$136 Calls – Swings: 2.75- 4.03 (+ 47%), 2.00-3.04 (+52%).
$137 Calls – Swings: 2.05-3.20, (+56%), 1.38-2.21 (+60%).

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KOOL, TIF Recaps & More

Endocyte, Inc. ECYT

We initially took notice of ECYT on Monday morning just as the company announced it had completed a worldwide license for its prostate cancer treatment now moving into Phase-3 development.

The stock made a solid 130% rip from 1.63 to 3.75 that morning, but it was only just getting started. Yesterday morning the stock ran hard once again, reaching its peak at a new annual high of 6.55. That puts the total on our two-day observed increased of 302% while volume over the same period has been literally hundreds of times greater than the monthly average prior to Monday’s bombshell PR.


Tiffany & Co. TIF – Options Update

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, we’ve been tracking the TIF 10/20 $92-93 Calls since the morning of September 28th. TIF stock has maintained its gradual ascent since that time, and with that, we’ve seen the potential gains made off of our ideas grow along with it.

The following ranges represent the lows from the 28th to the highs achieved during yesterday’s session:

$92 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.20 – Max Gain: 120%
$92.50 Calls – Range: .85-2.19  – Max Gain: 158%.
$93 Calls – Range: .83-2.15 – Max Gain: 159%


Cesca Therapeutics Inc. KOOL

After including KOOL in yesterday morning’s watchlist, we watched as the stock made a very nice intraday run on the chart with the help of some positive news.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a Notice of Allowance on the company’s patent application for its proprietary method for separating target cells from blood, marrow, and other sources.

That prompted a solid boost from 3.96 to 6.44 on the day, marking an intraday push of 63% which was accompanied by the trading of 223X more shares than the monthly average!
