Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

Lumentum Holdings Inc. LITE

We noted yesterday morning that LITE was bucking trend of the two-day market bloodbath we witnessed this week. We made it clear that we were interested in the LITE Weekly $44-46 Calls regardless of which way the markets went, and it turned out to be a solid idea.

The markets did of course see a reversal, and LITE did perform well on the day, creating the following gains in our tracked contracts:

$44 Calls – Range: 2.00-8.00 – Max Gain: 300%
$45 Calls – Range: 2.50-6.98 – Max Gain: 179%

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Weekly $16-17.50 Calls


Quotient Ltd. QTNT

Another stock we went bullish on in yesterday morning’s report, despite coming off the biggest two-day losses for stocks in history, was QTNT.

It boasted a solid bottom setup, and had already exhibited some bottom-bounce activity in the prior session. It also performed well on the day, trading up from a low of 3.36 to a high of 4.39- a respectable intraday run of 31%  We’ll look for the stock to establish a trend of higher highs and higher lows over the next few sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays, Options & More

Novavax, Inc. NVAX

Our first item of interest this morning is going to be NVAX. This play set off our alarms on Friday when the stock was downgraded on the heels of ill-received trial data on the company’s RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) vaccine.

Whenever we see knee-jerk reactions take place, and Friday’s backslide of more than 80% certainly qualifies in that category, we like to place the battered stocks on watch for the subsequent recoveries that occur as often as not.

With the monster gap that Friday’s activity left on the chart (1.20′s to 8.10′s), it will be very interesting to see how the stock responds as we kick off a fresh trading week. Prior to that it had been on a fairly steady four month uptrend that almost reached the 100%-mark. All these factors playing in at once are plenty enough to reserve a slot for NVAX on our radars in coming sessions.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options Idea

We’ve tracked NFLX options to great success on multiple occasion in the past, and today seems like a good time to take another run at it. Along with being on the uptrend for the past six or seven weeks, the stock breached its 200DMA in a bullish manner on Friday, a signal that further advances could be in the cards this week. NFLX is gapping up slightly in the premarket this morning.

In accordance, we want to have an options idea ready and waiting to take advantage should a continued surge be in the cards. The targets we want to zero in on are the NFLX Weekly $99.50-101 Calls for potential swing trades.



APT Systems, Inc. APTY

We alerted our readers to a PR put out by APTY on Friday alluding to the planned purchase of shares out of the open market by the company’s CEO. That coincided with a reasonable amount of momentum that the stock had carried into that session from the one prior.

We mentioned that we liked the chances of the stock seeing some further increases for Friday’s session, and we weren’t disappointed on that front. APTY traded in a solid range from .0032 to .0044, a respectable intraday gain totaling 38%

We’ll remain interested in this play provided it can maintain support above Friday’s swing-low of .0032.
