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.

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.

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,.
