Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Weekly Wrap-Up

We cast a wide net yesterday with a trio of options ideas in the pharma space related to the reversal of the Trump administration’s position on drug rebate policy. The sector was bustling with activity in the premarket, and two out of our three ideas bore fruit.

Here were the total possible gains available to daytraders for the session:

Fresh Idea:
SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY $299-300 Calls


Taronis Technologies, Inc. TRNX

On Monday morning, we highlighted TRNX as a prime bottom-bounce candidate, and we’d like to wrap up the week by going over the solid swings which we subsequently observed in the stock.

On Monday itself, our choice in timing on calling this play was affirmed as we saw a solid 52% run from  .25-.38. This was followed by a pullback to a low of .1832 the following day, and over the course of the rest of the week, TRNX has stair-stepped its way back up to .34, which represents an additional 86% swing.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Update

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Update

Our fresh options idea to kick off the new trading week yesterday utilizing the SPY started off on a good foot. It’s something we always come back to because of the predictable way it behaves and trades.

We designated the SPY 06/19 $289-290.50 Calls as our contracts of interest, and the markets’ activity played into our hands nicely, for a start. Here were the gains that were made possible on the day yesterday:

$289 Calls – Range: 1.50-2.00 – Max Gain: 33%
$289.50 Calls – Range: 1.24-1.73 – Max Gain: 40%
$290 Calls – Range: 1.00-1.45 – Max Gain: 45%
$290.50 Calls – Range: .80-1.15 – Max Gain: 196%

The SPY is gapping up once again today, and we expect all of these calls to open deep in the money and see new highs. We’re going to continue to monitor these, but also look to roll up and include the $291 and $291.50′s in our watchlist as well.


Robert Half International, Inc. RHI

We’ve got another fresh idea based on the technical setup of the RHI chart, which has been trending up off a double bottom. We see some decent volatility potential, and a topside gap to fill on the chart. This is going to be a longer term idea, which could ultimately turn into a solid recovery play.

We are going to place the RHI 09/20 $55-65 Calls on watch for the weeks and months ahead. RHI most likely wouldn’t even have to fill that gap for us to see results. A run at the 200DMA or even 50DMA would likely produce significant gains in those contracts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TEUM Recap & More

Pareteum Corp. TEUM
-
Just yesterday, we were commenting on the large number of stocks we’ve recently tracked for large gains despite already trading at more than a dollar per share. We’ve been seeing OTC-type gains from NYSE and NASDAQ plays, and TEUM is another good example of this.

The day after our mention of TEUM in our morning report from February 8th, we observed a low of 1.72 in TEUM, and it hasn’t looked back since. Yesterday, the stock reached a new high of 3.59, representing a six-week double-bag swing of 108%


Geron Corp. GERN

GERN, another of our calls to make a solid six week run, added another new high yesterday, just after our morning report in which we outlined its prior performance. The stock had already showed us a move from 2.025-5.00 (+147%).

Yesterday’s trading range took it from a low of 5.08 to a new high of 6.68. That works out to an intraday pop of 31% and increases our total observed range to an impressive 230%



Nike Inc. NKE – Fresh Options Idea

Nike posted a beat on earning sales and revs yesterday post-market, and is up in early trading today, so we’re definitely going to want to put a range of calls on watch as we close out another trading week.

We’ll be tracking the NKE Weekly $66.50-68 Calls, but remember, NEVER attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.
