Due to the sheer number of winning plays to report on from Friday’s newsletter, we will give only a brief summary including the name of the company, the ideas we submitted, and the total possible gains they had provided by the end of the week.

Nearly everything we’ve had our hands in recently has made some type of the move to the upside, continuing a very promising trend that we have established in the first months of 2019.

AstraZeneca plc AZN -We cited some contracts here earlier in the week (Weekly $39-39.50 Calls), as well as updated that idea on Friday with a couple of new targets at higher strike prices (Weekly $40-40.50 Calls). All contracts involved saw significant moves/new highs.

Electronic Arts, Inc. EA - We had the EA Weekly $107-109 Calls in Friday’s report as a fresh idea, and all three of those plays could have worked out nicely for traders. We saw double bag gain opportunities across the board in this case.$107 Calls – Range: .78-1.60 – Max Gain: 102%

$108 Calls – Range: .50-1.13 – Max Gain: 126%

Canopy Growth Corp. CGC – We’ve been watching Canopy since well before the stock uplisted to the NYSE from the OTC, and while what was supposed to be a Canadian cannabis boom has been much more subdued than anticipated, we still like to keep tabs on this one and use its activity to our advantage wherever possible. On Friday we targeted the CGC Weekly $46.50-48 Calls and were met with multi-bag intraday gains there as well.
$39.50 Calls – Range: .83-2.01 – Max Gain: 142%
$40 Calls – Range: .62-1.60 – Max Gain: 158%

$274.50 Calls – Range: .85-2.92 – Max Gain: 244%

AstraZeneca plc AZN – The AZN Weekly $38-39.50 Calls  were on our radar yesterday morning as our fresh options idea, and despite the lower end of that range being pushed too far in the money, we still saw some solid moves out of the $39′s and $39.50′s.

The $39′s ran from .55-.90 for a gain of 64%, while the $39.50′s cruised from a low of .19 to hit .55; a big-time intraday pop of 189%  We want to continue to watching this chain as well, with the 39.50′s, and also rolling up to include the $40 and $40.50′s*.

Invacare Corp. IVC – Recap

From a low of 7.21 IVC reached 9.54, which was good for an intraday rise of 32% which made it the second highest gainer on the NASDAQ for Thursday. We’ll continue to monitor this one as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Calls & More

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY)

We are wrapping up a very solid week, which even included a twenty-bagger (NFLX $300 Calls, +2069%). This morning, with the markets appearing to be geared toward  bullish finish to the week, we will entertain a range of SPY Calls, for the possibility of some good daytrades to really end things on a high note going into the upcoming long weekend.

The SPY is our go-to target when not a lot else is jumping off of the scanner, and we’ve played it successfully on more occasions to count. The most recent being a couple of sets of ideas we made just prior to the New Year, which resulted in gains ranging from 300-600%

Today, we are going to be tracking the SPY Weekly $263.50-265 Calls.*

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NKE Options & More

Nike, Inc. NKE 

We’re seeing a possible opportunity for NKE to close out the week today, despite the continued bearish activity for the markets at large. Like a lot of stocks, NKE is at its lowest prices in quite some time; in this case, seven months. But we are seeing the makings of a potential quick-strike play here, and we’d like to signal some options ideas to coincide with the present situation.

We;re going to focus in on the NKE Weekly $73-74 Calls after the company logged a beat on both earnings and revenues in its post-market release yesterday. Additionally the company provided stout guidance, so if anything has a chance to buck the trend and put forth a bullish session today, it would be Nike.


New Age Beverages, Inc. NBEV

Speaking of bucking the trend, NBEV, another anomalous performer that we’ve been tracking for quite some time has been flying in the face of current market sentiment for six weeks now.

When we high;lighted this stock on the morning of November 15th, it was trading for as little as 3.30, and after weeks of bullish sentiment, the stock has reached new highs at 6.90, which accounts for a move of 109%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Day for Options

Options Recap

Yesterday, our premarket report included two fresh sets of options trading ideas for Under Armour, and Take Two Interactive, and thanks in part to a nice rebound for the markets, we were able to see some really nice gains in our designated plays.

Both of these were companies that had just reported their quarterly earnings, which just reinforces why we continue to make these same kinds of calls over and over again. Post-earnings options trading, while just as risky as any other type of short-term trade, is also just about the most reliable way to find quick-strike opportunities to profit.

Here were the trading ranges and total possible single-session gains that could have been banked off of yesterday’s ideas:

Under Armour Inc. UAA $19-20 Calls
$19 – 2.69-4.20 (+56%)
$19.50 – 2.65-3.82 (+44%)
$20 – 1.75-3.25 (+85%)

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. TTWO $122-125 Calls
$122 – 4.00-5.60 (+40%)
$123 – 2.49-5.70 (+129%)
$124 – 2.50-4.20 (+68%)
$125 – 2.50-4.00 (+60%)
