Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FAST Review & More

Fastenal Co. FAST – Recap

We have had a continuous run of good fortune with our past several options calls over the last few weeks, and we continued to press our luck yesterday in signaling a range of options ideas for FAST.

We highlighted the FAST Weekly $50-55 Calls  as our fresh idea in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and not only did each of them provide chances for single-session profits, but they did so in absolutely grand fashion.

Serious multi-bag moves were on the menu regardless of which of the three strike points in our selected range was chosen by traders, with the $55′s being the most eye-popping with 38-bagger!

$50 Calls – Range: 1.65-6.50 – Max Gain: 294%
$52.50 Calls – Range: .45-4.00 – Max Gain: 789%
$55 Calls – Range: .05-1.98 – Max Gain: 3860%

Fresh Idea :
Delta Airlines, Inc. DAL Weekly $49.50-51.50 Calls


Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IDRA

We also want to place IDRA on bottom watch this morning after noticing how oversold the stock has become.

A merger agreement, one that wasn’t particularly favored to begin with, was cancelled, causing a big selloff. The kicker, is a literal ‘kicker’, a cancellation fee of $6M payable to IDRA by the proposed merger partner. That’s why we feel now is a good time to begin watching IDRA for a possible bottom bounce.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL Options Idea

Delta Airlines, Inc. DAL

To start things off this morning, we’re immediately drawn to the most recognizable name on the premarket earnings calendar for the day. Delta has been beaten back over the past few weeks, to the point of approaching heavily oversold territory, especially as the PPS fell below the 50DMA for the first time since the second week of February.  When that did occur, the stock launched into a month-long bullish pattern. All of this is plainly evident on the chart snapshot below.

With this morning’s beat on earnings as a catalyst, we’ll look for a similar pattern to emerge this time around, and begin tracking the DAL 04/13 51.50-53 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HOME Recap & More

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – Options Idea

We’d like to start things off this morning by taking a look at BABA, which recently has formed a strong double-bottom setup on the chart. The stock is gapping up in premarket trading today, currently in the mid-$170′s and we’d like to formulate an extended term options idea to track over the next few weeks for an overdue recovery.

We’re going to zero in on the BABA 05/04 $180-187.50 Calls, which will give us plenty of time for the stock to realize the kind of gains that look very possible from a technical standpoint at this juncture.


At Home Group, Inc. HOME – Update

On the morning of March 23rd, we had selected a longer-term idea for the HOME options chain, and we wanted to take a look at the moves it has made in the three and a half weeks since that time.

Our target set of contracts was the HOME 04/20 $30 Calls, and with the stock surging to nearly $35 this week, those calls have been pushed well into the money and produced a heck of a gain opportunity. From the low shortly after our initial alert to a new high reach yesterday, we’ve seen a run from 1.31-5.50, which represents a chance at profits of up to 320%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY, CHFS & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We want to start things off today by looking to take advantage of the big rebound in the markets yesterday. When we want to play the markets as a whole, we generally look to the SPY options chain, and that’s what we’re going to do today as well.

We are seeing a significant gap up this morning, and are going to be looking for a classic dip-and-rip scenario due to profit taking. Our targets are going to be the SPY Weekly $264-266 Calls provided that support can hold above this morning’s premarket low of 263.56 on any pullbacks in order to remain interested.



CHF Solutions Inc. CHFS

We also want to highlight CHFS this morning as a possible bottom play. The stock is gapping up in the premarket past its 50DMA, and there is a massive gap on the chart to the upside from just under $5 to just under $8.

We’re going to put CHFS, which prior to today had already been approaching heavily oversold territory, on watch over the next few sessions for the possibility of a more sustained rebound.


Cronos Group, Inc. CRON

We’re getting a strong bottom bouncer signal from CRON as well this morning, and we wanted to highlight this chart also.

CRON is currently exhibiting most of the things we look for in a bottom play, and we’re excited to see where it could go in the near term, as it looks like there could be some serious upside here.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INTC Recap & More

Intel Corp. INTC

On Friday morning, we saw serious potential in the INTC options chain following the company’s earning beat. They posted solid figures, but some were concerned over the possible security flaws prsent in the company’s new chips. Those fears were shrugged off with ease, as the stock took off for what ultimately turned out to be an exceptionally bullish session.

The move INTC made allowed for the chance at some really nice intraday profits in each of the three contracts we designated in Friday morning’s report, the INTC Weekly $47.50-48.50 Calls.

$47.50 Calls – Range: .75-2.50 – Max Gain: 233%
$48 Calls – Range: .43-1.99 – Max Gain: 362%
$48.50 Calls – Range: .25-1.50 – Max Gain: 500%


Ballard Power Systems, Inc. BLDP – Bottom-Watch

We’re always looking for a good bottom play, and one may be getting ready to present itself in the near future on BLDP. We want to place the stock on intensive bottom-watch in coming sessions, after it appears that BLDP has been the target of manipulative short-seller tactics, including a very likely erroneous class action ‘investigation’ and suit by multiple law firms. We see this type of thing all the time, and very seldom does anything come of such a situation.

What we do have is a stock that has been severely abused, beaten back to a previous multiple bottom of strong support. In a PR published today, the company has refuted the claims of its accusers, while adding that it expects to report record financials for fiscal 2017 presently. (>>View PR)

We’ll be sure to monitor BLDP for a bottom bounce which should be forthcoming at any time, and the subsequent rebound to follow, which could bring us a shot at considerable gains from current levels.

Side Note: We also want to radar Plug Power, Inc. PLUG, as it tends to trade very similarly to BLDP. We’ve traditionally looked at these plays in tandem, so we’ll keep watch over PLUG as well as it comes down to find its own bottom.
