Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off a New Trading Week

Ocean Rig UDW Inc. ORIG

We’ve had ORIG on bottom-watch for just under a month now, as the stock was undergoing a consolidation that appeared unsustainable. It seemed just a matter of time before it began to rebound, so we were monitoring it for a signal and got one in a big way on Friday.

ORIG came off its newly-registered annual low of .12 and traded up as high as .237, a 98% rise which occurred on ten times the monthly average volume. More importantly, the stock managed to crack through its 50DMA at .19, and held above that mark with a closing price of .20.

We’re going to want to continue to track ORIG, looking for the registering of higher lows off of its recent bottom. The RSI is also screaming toward the power zone, so we’ll hope to see ORIG string together a multi-day run.


Camber Energy, Inc. CEI

Speaking of stocks that are gaining strength, CEI has been in a pretty convincing ascending wedge pattern recently, routinely recording higher highs and higher lows off of its annual lows established late June.

We’ve pointed out on the chart below where the next key areas of resistance are, so we’ll want to track CEI to see if it can maintain its current trajectory and make a run at those areas on the chart.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Continued Options Success

Twitter, Inc. TWTR – Options Recap

Our first order of business in today’s options-heavy report is to go over the second straight session of excellent intraday runs TWTR Weekly $15-16 Calls which we designated as targets in Wednesday morning’s premarket report.

This midweek, Twitter had posted losses that were less than expected in conjunction with rising user numbers. It has provided us with some really good opportunities, which were as follows:

$15 Calls – Range: .84-1.61 – Max Gain: 92%
$15.50 Calls – Range: .39-1.10 – Max Gain: 151%
$16 Calls – Range: .13-.63 – Max Gain: 384%

At this point these contracts owe us nothing. Granted that these are weeklies and it’s Friday, coupled with the fact that the stock has rushed into heavily overbought territory in just a short time, we’re fine moving on to the next thing which we’ll get to in a moment.


United Parcel Service, Inc. UPS

First we want to go over our UPS options idea that we formulated fresh for yesterday’s premarket report. This was another earnings-related idea, as a great deal of our options calls tend to be, and it worked like an absolute charm.

We signaled the UPS 05/05 $108-111 Calls and every single contract in that range produced chances for spectacular multi-bag gains on the day, with the $111′s stealing the show on a seven-bagger!

$108 Calls – Range: .48-1.70 – Max Gain: 254%
$109 Calls – Range: .23-.99 – Max Gain: 330%
$110 Calls – Range: .21-.52 – Max Gain: 148%
$111 Calls – Range: .04-.33 – Max Gain: 725%

These plays, we can leave on our radars as they don’t expire until the end of next week. If UPS manages to convincingly crack through the 200DMA at 109.00, things could get very interesting.


Western Digital Corp. WDC – Fresh Idea

As for the play that’s catching our attention on this morning’s scan, we’ve got yet another post-earnings target with WDC. The stock has been trading in an upward channel for the better part of a year now, and the company just put out a solid beat for Q3 while issuing a bolstered Q4 outlook.

We’ll try to take advantage of the commotion it’s causing on the chart with the WDC Weekly $90-92.50 Calls, but please remember the warning we always give in these situations: Never attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are a highly experienced trader- it’s an exceedingly risky proposition.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NADL Update, Options & More

North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. NADL

NADL topped our list of potential bottom-plays in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and it ended up being the primary runner of the day.

We picked up on the stock on a routine scan, after noticing a sizable gap-up in the morning, coupled with the fact that the stock had been repeatedly beaten down over an extended period. All the signs seemed to be pointing toward a significant day for NADL, and that’s exactly what transpired.

The stock traded in a daily range from 1.73 on up to 2.87, for a highly respectable single-session swing of 66% that came in on mind-bending volume, on the order of 150X the 30-day average. That type of momentum always has a shot at carrying over, and sure enough, NADL is gapping in the premarket once again today.

The early high is in the 3.50′s, extending to total rise we’ve witnessed in less than 24 hours to roughly 100% and it puts us on alert once again today. We’ll be looking for higher highs and higher lows as usual as we watch this one play out.


Excellent Chatroom Calls

Every once in awhile we like to remind our readers on our website as well as our daily newsletter recipients that we conduct live trader’s chats via Skype on a daily basis, and any of our readers is more than welcome to participate. All you need to do to get in on the action is send a Skype contact request to username ‘stocksumo’. You can sit in and get ideas or offer up some of your own!

Yesterday, one of our chatters gave the room a heads up on Bravatek Solutions, Inc. BVTK shortly before 11AM, and the stock ultimately ran from .0002 to .0011, for an intraday pop of 540% on nearly two billion shares traded.

That brings us to another fantastic call, this time by our very own Stock Sumo, who brought American Leisure Holdings, Inc. AMLH to the attention of the room on March 27th, after which time there was plenty of opportunity to get in at .0003. The stock subsequently ran to a high of .007 two weeks (11 trading days) later, marking an enormous 2233% increase!

If these aren’t reasons to get involved with our daily trader’s chats, then we don’t know what is! There have been a multitude of super-subpenny runners over recent weeks, and these two are prime examples of why we continue to press the issue.


New Options Ideas

We don’t want to spend all of our focus on the stock side of things though, especially with our continued success with options trading, so we want to formulate a few ideas based on some things we’re seeing in the premarket.

Lululemon Athletica, Inc. LULU – We want to signal both some weekly and extended-range calls this morning on LULU, which has been making attempts at coming off of recent relative lows, with a massive gap on the chart to the upside. We could see this returning to fill at least a portion of that gap. We’ll have our eyes on the LULU Weekly $52-53.50 Calls as well as the 05/06 $55-57 Calls.

Delta Air Lines, Inc.DAL – We’re looking at DAL for a possible short-term play after its earnings beat this morning. Profits fell by a less-than-expected margin, while positive Q2 guidance was issued. Coupled with a major PR disaster for one of its main competitors this week, and we’re definitely interested in seeing if DAL can make an appreciable move. If it does, we’ll be looking at the DAL Weekly $45.50-47.50 Calls.
