SPY on a Run, Fresh Options Ideas

Options Recap

Yesterday morning, despite reactions to the presidential debates causing a premarket dip in the markets, we decided to go bullish on the SPY, as four positive economic reports had also just dropped. Our hunch proved to be beneficial right from the opening bell as the markets spent the majority of the day ripping.

Our targets were the SPY Weekly $334-335 Calls, and both sets of contracts produced double bag gain chances for us. We did see a pullback late in the day after these runs, bringing them down to new lows, and based on this morning’s premarket activity, we should have another opportunity to see some big upswings from there.

SPY Weekly $334-335 Calls
$334: 2.45-5.55 (+126%)
$335: 2.21-4.81 (+117%)

We are also going to want to roll up to include the SPY $336-337 Calls on our watchlist.  


Fresh Options Idea:
BBBY Weekly $16-18 Calls
NKLA Weekly $21.50-23 Calls 

ABCO Energy, Inc. ABCE – Recap

Also included in yesterday’s report was a tag of ABCE in our extended watchlist, which is most typically where you can find our penny stock plays. It put together a solid multibag run from .0004 up to a high of .0009. That works out to an intraday gain of 125%

Based off of the momentum we saw yesterday, with the stock trading right around a billion and a half shares (over 26X the 30-day average volume), we will want to continue to monitor this play as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CDTI Recap & More

Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. CDTI

Jumping off of yesterday’s extended watchlist was CDTI, which made an early run which could have been milked for noteworthy intraday gains. The stock surged out of the gate in a range from 2.27-3.38 within the first 20 minutes of trading; that was good for profits of up to 49% for the quick-witted trader.

The run came in conjunction with a PR containing positive trial results from the company’s “Spinel” clean emissions exhaust technology >>Read PR

We’ll continue to monitor CDTI’s progress as the week progresses, especially as it searches for support on the heels of yesterday’s early spike. There could be some bounce-action forthcoming.

There’s also more news hitting the wires today highlighting an underwritten public offering, the net proceeds of which will reportedly be in excess of $4.5M. >>Read PR

Coates International, Ltd. COTE

We made yet another early call in our Skype-based trader’s chatroom yesterday in the form of COTE. Just a few minutes into the session we tagged the stock, and from a low of .0025 it absolutely broke out to a daily high of .0165. That’s an epic mega-move of 560%

Those who missed out on the intial pop could have utilized several subsequent swings of serious stature; COTE logged moves from .0103-.014 (+36%), .007-.0105 (+50%), and .0078-.01 (+28%).

We’d call that a darn good reason to get involved with our chats, but it isn’t the only one we’ve given recently.

We were just reminding our readers the other day about joining in our daily chats after we called AURI in the room last Thursday, and that idea actually led to a multi-day, multi-bag run from that stock. We’ll be looking for similar activity from COTE, staying open to the possibility of a dip-and-rip scenario following a consolidation off of yesterday’s huge spike.

Once again, if you want to get in on our chats, all you need to do is send a Skype Contact Request to ‘stocksumo’. All of our readers are more than welcome to participate, and it will prevent you from missing out on prime chances like this one!

New Options Ideas

We thought we’d also provide a few new options ideas for the first time this week. We’ve got potential short and longer-term possibilities to suggest:

Petroleo Brasiliero SA (Petrobras) PBR –  This old favorite always seems to produce for us, and after sizing up the chart (snapshot below), we like the current landscape, provided it can continue to maintain support at or above the 50DMA of 8.44. In the short-term, we’re looking at the Weekly PBR $8.00-9.00 Calls. For a potential extended idea, we’ll be tagging the August $10.00-11.00 Calls for observation.

LinkedIn Corp. LNKD – LNKD is another repeat-appearance options play for us. Today we’re going to be keeping watch over the Weekly $205.00-212.50 Call range, and for our longer-term watchlist, the August $220.00-230.00 Calls.

Extended Watchlist:
MNOV, RXII, AGEN, PBMD, DNRG(>>Interesting PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IMGN, AURI Reviews & More

ImmunoGen, Inc. IMGN

We were hoping for a strong start to the week yesterday, and IMGN was among those stocks to provide us with the spark to get it going. We tagged this play in yesterday’s extended watchlist after noticing it gapping up pretty heavily in the premarket.

From its opening price of 11.48, the stock soared as high as 15.88, a single session spike of 38% on volume that exceeded the 3-month average by more than ten times.

We’ll always continue to keep watch over a stock on the tail-end of such a momentous burst, as there may be rebound opportunities presenting themselves on any pullbacks.

Auri, Inc. AURI

Speaking of bounceplays, AURI ended up turning in an impressive intraday performance yesterday. Just as we were patting ourselves on the back for catching a 92% pop in the stock on Friday, we explicitly suggested that there could be added opportunities forthcoming, stating:

“We won’t disregard the possibility of a bounceplay once the stock establishes firm support, so we’ll be on the lookout for that.”

We didn’t have to keep a lookout for long, because after dipping down to find support at .003 quite early in the session, the stock banged out another huge move for us, running all the way up to .0064. That marked an intraday swing of 113% and occurred on nearly three times the monthly average volume.

We’ll keep our eyes on the price action as the week progresses, being interested to see how this morning’s publications of New Shareholder Updates & Current Status and new sales distribution channels are received.

Oncothyreon, Inc. ONTY

We also flagged ONTY in yesterday’s report, and it made a notable intraday move as well. The stock traded in a range from 3.78-4.69, providing folks with the chance at modest intraday gains of up to 24%

Our timing in re-alerting this play yesterday was beautiful, as the daily high also registered as a new 52-week high. When calculated from our observed low of 2.80 following our initial alert on the stock on May 22nd, it comes in at an overall increase of 67% in just over a week’s time.

DirectView Holdings, Inc. DIRV

As we’re all aware, 2015 has been a year of heightened tensions between civilians and law enforcement, showing the growing need for more oversight into police operations. We successfully used the beginning of this trend to trade TASR options earlier this year, and we’re going to radar DIRV as a similar type of play in the microcap arena .

Like TASR, the company produces body-worn cameras, the implementation of which has been an exponentially growing trend in cities across the country this year. This morning we learned that the company has been testing on a special line of the products that includes mobile broadband technology. >> READ PR

In addition, DIRV is building a cherry of a chart at the moment, as we point out with the annotations below. We’ll place it on our watchlist moving forward.

PLUG Power, Inc PLUG

We recently rementioned an old favorite, PLUG, and said that we wanted to see it get back  to trading above its 50DMA and the stock has done that. It has been doing a good job of holding support above that mark (Currently 2.61) and we wanted to point out the PR that hit the wires this morning.
