Blue Horseshoe Stock: INSE Update & More

Inspired Entertainment Inc. INSE – Update

Yesterday morning, we placed INSE on recovery watch in the wake of its quarterly reporting. We cited the attractive bottom-bounce that was in effect as the markets had tanked the previous day and INSE managed to buck that trend.

Our instincts about this play turned out to be very good, with the stock piling on yet another very solid trading session. The stock’s low came in right at the opening price of 3.86 and it never looked back. INSE ran up to 5.23, representing a respectable single-session rise of 35%

It also closed just three cents lower than the high of day, setting us up to see if the stock can continue to build upon the momentum it has thus far exhibited.


DSW, Inc. DSW

We’d also like to formulate a fresh options idea for the DSW chain, after noticing an attractive chart setup. The stock has been trading at its lowest PPS since May, which when coupled with solid earnings and guidance in this morning’s quarterly report, could make for just the right conditions to strike on some options trades.

We’re going to signal interest in the DSW 12/21 $22.50 & $25 Calls, and keep those on watch throughout the rest of the week and into the next.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APHA, MDCA & More

Aphria, Inc. APHA

Yesterday morning in our premarket report, we said that the unusually high short interest in APHA was one of the factors playing into our decision to designate it as a bottom-watch play. The rebound we were looking for came instantaneously for us with APHA heating up, and the short squeeze was on.

From a low of 3.75, the stock cruised on up to a high of 5.59 for a daily burst amounting to 49% on considerable volume. We’ll be looking for APHA to continue to make up some of the ground it has lost over the past month.



MDC Partners, Inc. MDCA

Another stock we included as a bottom play yesterday, MDCA also experienced a solid performance on the day. It traded from a low of 2.57 on up to 3.29, for a moderate but respectable 28% gain.

It also factored in as the NASDAQ’s fourth largest gainer of the session. The run came to an end right around an area of previous resistance, so we’ll look for it to break that top in the sessions ahead.



Fresh Options Ideas

Cronos Group Inc. CRON Weekly $13-15 Calls* – As we were just mentioning on Tuesday, we first tagged CRON back on Halloween, at which time the stock was trading at a low of 7.10. This morning in the premarket the stock has attained an impressive new high of 14.58, marking a five week run of 105% The above mentioned calls are how we’re going to attempt to take advantage of today’s new movement on the chart.

Lululemon Athletica, Inc. LULU Weekly $130-133 Calls*

SDPR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $268-270 Calls*

*Caution: NEVER trade options contracts with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HSY Update & More

The Hershey Co. HSY

Despite the miss on Q3 earnings, we were confident enough in HSY’s setup to submit an idea for its options chain in yesterday morning’s report, and those ideas returned immediate opportunities for single-session profits.

We’re used to bucking the trend when we see a good enough chance, and this was a perfect example. Even as the market itself logged another day of losses, Hershey performed just as we’d hoped. Our targets were the HSY Weekly $102-104 Calls, and they all returned sizable gains on the day:

$102 Calls – Range: 2.79-5.60 - Max Gain: 101%
$103 Calls – Range: 2.25-4.47 – Max Gain: 99%
.$104 Calls – Range: 1.40-3.70 - Max Gain: 164%

We’ll continue to monitor these plays, but as it stands, these were some really good ideas to kick off the trading week amid some touchy conditions overall.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CASI, BYOC, HMNY Recaps

Beyond Commerce, Inc. BYOC

It was the morning of September 25th that we tagged BYOC for observation and it has essentially undergone a continual uptrend over that time period.

That morning we witnessed a low of .0035 in the stock and as of yesterday’s new high reached just prior to the close, was .0189. That amounts to a very impressive boost of 440% over a time span of just 13 trading days.


CASI Pharceuticals, Inc. CASI

We placed CASI on watch in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and wanted to come back this morning to talk about its performance. The stock ran extremely hard out of the starting gate and attainted its high within the first half hour of trading.

Despite failing to maintain its gains into the close, the run it made was impressive nonetheless. CASI’s low came in at 2.82 and it reached as high as 4.84, for an intraday pop of 92%


Helios & Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We also want to take a final look at the overall move HMNY has made for us. It appears as if its epic run is over but it brought with it one of the biggest, fastest moves we’ve ever seen in a stock in its price range.

From our observed low of 5.47 subsequent to our alert on the stock on September 20th, to yesterday’s mind-bending high of 38.86, represents a rise of 610% Congratulations to anyone who was able to take this one for a ride.
