Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Options & More

Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. LL – Recap
Although LL did gap up a lot higher than expected to start the session, and larger gains would have been available at higher strike prices closer to the money, but most of our listed targets, the LL Weekly $27.50-29.50 Calls, still managed to see some solid intraday moves.

Those potential gains, including a double-bagger by the $28′s, were as follows:

$27.50 Calls – Range: 3.00-5.50 – Max Gain: 83%
$28 Calls – Range: 2.30-5.00 – Max Gain: 117%
$28.50 Calls – Range: 3.36-4.27 – Max Gain: 27%
$29 Calls – Range: 2.00-3.70 – Max Gain: 85%


Apple, Inc. AAPL

With AAPL breaking out to new all-time highs in the premarket this morning, after a strong earnings report was more than enough to assuage any concerns about lagging iPhone sales, we’re going to want to try to get in on the fun.

AAPL is gearing up to the point that it may also drive the DOW to the 22,000 level, causing a cascading effect that should make for an interesting week for traders across the board.

As for us, we’re going to be tracking the AAPL Weekly $155-162.50 Calls on the heels of this premarket mega-push that has thus far yielded a high of $160 on the nose.


Amarin Corp plc AMRN

We also want to take note of AMRN, which recently took a fair beating on the chart, and is showing clear signs of a reversal.

We also want to signal some calls in that options chain as well as watching the stock itself. The AMRN Weekly $4 Calls will be the options we put on our radar.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Double-Bottom Watchlist & More

Double-Bottom Watchlist

We like to look for potential rebound plays in stocks that are displaying a double bottom formation on the chart, and we’ve got three such candidate to add to a recovery watchlist this morning.

InVivo Therapeutics Holding Corp. NVIV, Stein Mart,Inc. SMRT, and Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc. SPWH have all begun to trend off of a level of support that has been established on one or more previous occasions. We’ll want to monitor this trio in the days and weeks ahead for possible sustained recoveries.




StarBucks Corp. SBUX – Options Idea

Shares of SBUX really came crashing down this morning, all the way to the $55-level, the lowest PPS since March. We’ll be looking to take advantage of a possible forthcoming rebound when the smoke clears.

SBUX has demonstrated solid support in the $54-area earlier this year, so we’ll look for it to hold there or above on this plummet that comes even as analysts are reporting a good outlook.

Once a rebound begins to materialize, we could see some noteworthy activity in the SBUX 08/18 $54-55 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Stocks Blazing & More


United Cannabis Corp. CNAB

CNAB was one of a pair of cannabis plays that we mentioned we’d be tracking toward the end of last week that ended up kicking this week’s trading off with great sessions. When we brought CNAB up in our premarket report on Thursday,

We followed up on Friday after the stock had made a 43% run from .28-.40, and asserted that we’d be on the lookout for CNAB as well as other plays in the pot sector to see increased activity in the weeks ahead. November is fast approaching, with several key cannabis initiatives coming up for a vote, including a recreational bill in California.

CNAB got off to a great start to the week today, by running from a low of .39 to a new high of .63. That worked out to an intraday move of 62%, and a total gain of  125% over our observed low from last week.

Our overall interest in the space has been ongoing from the fall of 2014, just prior to the first “Green Rush”, a historic period which saw countless stocks in the sector make exponential gains. With activity for many of these stocks picking up once again, we’ll be certain to watch plays like GRNH, ERBB, PHOT, TRTC, PZOO, and BLOZF more closely.


OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

The other cannabis related stock that we’ve been hot on the trail of since Thursday is OWCP, and the stock has been pushing the envelope ever since.

Yesterday we were just mentioning the excellent gains it had already made from .0045 to .0111, and that we were anxious to see it continue its momentum, and it followed up with another great performance. From its daily low of .0109 OWCP went on to hit a new high of .0193, representing a daily rip of 77%, and a three-session overall increase of 329% over Thursday’s .0045 low.

Congratulations to any of our readers who caught a piece of the excellent action on OWCP. With the progress it’s already made, we’ll definitely be reserving a continued slot on our radar screens for this stock in sessions ahead.


Nova Lifestyle, Inc. NVFY

We also want to take a minute to point out a good catch we had in NVFY yesterday, which traded monster volume to the tune of roughly 20X the monthly average, and recorded a solid intraday push.

The stock traded in a range from 3.81-5.15, for a gain of 35% and held a good deal of that advance into the close at 5.08. We’ll continue to track this play and look for it to record another session of higher highs and higher lows, as it has done for the past six days straight.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recap & Other Updates

Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ – Options Review

The options trading idea that we formulated yesterday morning for the STZ chain was spot-on, and gave ourselves and our readers chances at some fantastic intraday gains. Our target range, highlighted in our premarket report was the STZ Weekly $150-160 Calls. Regardless of the chosen strike point, any of those contracts yielded prime opportunity for gains on the strength of an earnings beat:

$150 Calls – Trading Range: 5.75-10.20 – Max Gain: 77%
$155 Calls – Trading Range: 1.52-5.65 – Max Gain: 271%
$160 Calls– Trading Range: .89-2.10 – Max Gain: 136%

___________

We’ve got a fresh idea this morning to add to the mix in attempt to extend our success with options calls as well. We are interested in tracking the WYNN Weekly $93-96.50 Calls for some quick-strike chances on a possible dip-and-rip setup.


Vivint Solar, Inc. VSLR

VSLR is one that we’re going to want to place on watch today, for reasons that are apparent when taking a quick look at the chart we’ve annotated below. We’ve got a number of bullish indicators as well as a strong bounce off of its lows over the past couple of days.

We’ll be watching to see if the stock can maintain some of the momentum it’s built up over the preceding two sessions.


Harmonic Energy, Inc. ASUV

Yesterday morning we were just mentioning the fact that we’d successfully tracked ASUV over an incredible five week run, seeing a trading range from .0024-.043, a swing of over 1600%  The stock continued to push its upper limits, setting a new high as it traded from an early low of .03 to .051.

The move marked an intraday pop of 70% and extended our total observed range since our initial alert on the play back on Leap Day  to an earth-shattering 2025%


Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. PSUN

PSUN is a stock that we entered into the log as a possible bottom-bounce play yesterday morning and we observed exactly the type of action we expected. Nimble-fingered traders could have gotten in and out with profits of up to 52% inside of the first 45 minutes of the session as PSUN ran from .091-.138.

We caught the company on the eve of filing bankruptcy(>>Read this morning’s PR), so it may be best to let the dust settle before considering a play on the stock again.


Other more modest gainers from yesterday’s morning report included UWTI (+10%) and MOMO(+15%), so we’ll leave those on our radar in sessions to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SDOC Recap & More


SandRidge Energy, Inc. SDOC

Our mention of SDOC in Friday’s premarket report turned out to very well-timed. We’ve had the stock on our radars since early this year, and  pushed it to the back burner for awhile, having so many other items of interest on the table.

We circled back around to it on Friday, just in time to catch a solid single session performance as the stock ran from a low of a nickel up to .0674; that works out to a 35% intraday increase on fairly heavy volume.

We’ll continue to keep an eye on SDOC, which appears to be ready to gap-up slightly today, for a breach of the 50DMA at .08.


Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. CLDX

We’re going to tag CLDX this morning as a bottom-watch play with serious rebound potential. Our bottom-feeder alerts are sounding loudly as we’re seeing the stock take an absolute nosedive on news of the cancellation of the company’s late-stage brain tumor vaccine study.

We’re always on the lookout for knee-jerk selloffs (which often transition into recovery plays), and CLDX has lost roughly half its value solely on the perceived effect of the announcement.

It’s worth it to mention that the company still has seven clinical trials underway on other products, so the discontinued project is by no means the only thing in the company’s pipeline.

We’ll be interested to track the action in CLDX in coming sessions as investors adjust to this morning’s events.
