Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Ideas & More


American Green, Inc. ERBB

We’ve seen a great performance out of ERBB over the past few sessions, since including it in Thursday morning’s premarket report. That morning the company had announced that it had purchased the entire town of Nipton California (>>View PR) with grand plans to turn it into a cannabis tourism destination.

Since then, ERBB has seen a big move on the chart, trading up from Thursday’s low of .0012 to a new 52-week high of .0046 yesterday, marking a three-day swing of 283% on the highest volume we’ve seen out of the stock since last fall.

We’re interested to keep an eye out for updates on the Nipton project, which will apparently consist of several facets including production of CBD-infused water sourced from local aquifers. ERBB is a stock we’ve followed for years, but we’ll want to pay extra attention in the weeks and months ahead to stay on top of that story and see how it affects the stock.


Options Ideas

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX – Despite a Q2 loss and guidance reduction posted in its report, VRX, which had been on a downtrend for several sessions prior, surged in premarket trading this morning.  We’re going to want to try to take advantage of the volatility created here with a set of options to track for potential swing trades. .

We’re going to be watching the VRX Weekly $16-17.50 Calls which could see some big activity following a potential early dip from profit-taking followed by a rip to new highs.

______

Michael Kors Holdings, Ltd. KORS – On the flip-side, KORS is a stock that was experiencing a pretty good uptrend for an extended period leading up to its own earnings report, in which the company easily exceeded Wall Street’s expectations, and raised guidance.

Like the previously mentioned play, we’ll look for the classic dip-and-rip formation, and will be tracking the KORS Weekly $41.50-43.50 Calls as we head into this midweek.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup

We had good fortune with our fresh options call yesterday, so today we’re going to be recapping the total possible gains on those plays, as well as unearthing a couple of fresh ideas to add to the mix as we close out this trading week.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Recap - Our inkling on DAL yesterday morning was to go bearish after a disappointing earnings call for the airline, with the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts. We were not disappointed with our decision to do so, as those DAL puts went on to log the following double and multi-bag intraday moves for us before lunch hour was over:

$55.50 Puts – Range: .76-1.60 – Max Gain: 110%
$55 Puts – Range: .48-1.05 – Max Gain: 119%
$54.50 Puts – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 160%
$54 Puts – Range: .13-.36 – Max Gain: 177%
$53.50 Calls – Range: .03-.17 – Max Gain: 466%
______

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD

Speaking of bearish options ideas, we want to enter another fresh set into the log this morning in AMD. This stock trades very cyclically, and from a technical perspective, looks as if it could continue to lose ground after a reversal this week. We’re going to place the AMD 07/21 $14-13 Puts on watch into next week in the event that our impression of this play is correct.
______

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. BJRI

Lastly on the options front, we are going to signal a range of extended-term calls on BJRI, which has a pretty attractive bottom setup on the chart at the moment. To take advantage of a potential sustained rebound, we’re going to be monitoring the BJRI 08/18 $35 & 40 Calls.
_____

Bonus Idea: NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls


Diana Containerships. Inc. DCIX

DCIX went into a full-on nose dive recently after it was announced that the company would be taking out roughly an $85M loan to settle a monster pile of debt, and the investment community did not take the news well.

The stock has subsequently fallen to new all-time lows, and that’s where we come in. We’re always looking for stocks like this to put on bottom-watch. Being egregiously oversold, DCIX may yet have a bit further to fall, but we’ll want to be ready for a reversal at any time. The resulting bounce-back could be considerable.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPEX, Options Recaps & More

Spherix Corp. SPEX

After initially signaling our interest in SPEX on June 20th, we’ve seen quite a run out of the stock as its gone from a low of .9505, and streaked to new highs this week.

SPEX gained some good ground on Wednesday, and yesterday morning we urged readers to look out for a momentum continuation- that’s precisely what came to pass. From daily low of 2.83 the stock streaked to 4.75. That went down as an intraday push of 68% and a total increase since we’ve been tracking this play amounting to a whopping 400% in barely a week’s time.

Volume remained strong, with SPEX trading more than 40X the monthly average volume on the day. We’ll want to see it continue to build higher base levels of support and hopefully continue to push the upper envelope.


CHF Solutions, Inc. CHFS

Also tagged in yesterday’s premarket report was CHFS, and it too made a pretty good move on the day. Volume was just dribbling in over the course of the morning, but shortly after lunch hour, the stock sprung into action.

From a low of .70 it reached as high as 1.08, which represents a 54% intraday pop. Our observed increase has been extended this morning as well, with premarket trading carrying CHFS even higher. Given the fact that this move was catalyzed by an FDA approval notice, we wouldn’t be surprised at all to see this blossom into a multi-day runner.


Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. CBI – Options Update

On Wednesday morning, we highlight a range of contracts in the CBI chain that we were interested in tracking, the CBI Weekly $20-22 Calls. As happens more often than not when we set our sights on an options play, every single contract has been good for sizable gains since our alert.

$20 Calls – Range: .75-1.90 – Max Gain: 153%
$20.50 Calls – Range: .38-1.30 – Max Gain: 242%
$21 Calls – Range: .25-1.22 – Max Gain: 388%
$21.50 Calls – Range: .20-.80 – Max Gain: 300%
$22 Calls – Range: .11-.55 – Max Gain: 400%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Reviewing June Winners & More

Moleculin Biotech,  Inc. MBRX

We wanted to circle back for an update on MBRX this morning, a stock that we signaled on June 21st, after noticing some abnormal activity the session prior.

Shortly thereafter we would witness a low of .96 in the stock, from which it would never look back. MBRX has been on a multi-day tear, with things really heating up yesterday. It ripped its way to a new high of 3.38, on more than 16 times the monthly average volume. That represents a total rise of 252%

We’ll continue to stay hot on the trail of MBRX for as long as it continues to build higher base levels of support.



Spherix Corp. SPEX

The day before the above-mentioned play, on June 20th, we highlighted SPEX after noticing the stock trading near a bottom, and it has been one heck of a ride since that time. We’ve seen this play run from a low of .9505 all the way up to 2.23.

The bulk of that move came in yesterday’s session wherein the stock also traded massive volume, so we’ll be on the lookout for a possible momentum spillover as we head into week’s end.


TrovaGene Inc. TROV

It was back on June 12th that we initially slated TROV for observation. The stock had been trending up off of recent relative lows since the beginning of this month.

Subsequent to our alert, we would witness a low of .85 in the stock and despite some swing-action, TROV has been in a general uptrend ever since.. As of the new high achieved in this morning’s premarket (1.60) it marks an increase of 88%


Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ – Options Idea

We’ve used the STZ optuions chain to our advantage in the past. The most recent occasion was last April, when we scored multibag gains with $155 Calls. The stock has been in serious growth-mode since then, and with a hearty, untraded-upon Q1 earnings beat this morning, we want to signal a range of contracts to watch once again.

The stock is gapping up to the $200-range today, and we’re going to be waiting in the wings with the STZ 07/21 $190-210 Calls.
