Another Green Rush for Marijuana Stocks?

Big Time Options Success Persists

The title of our report that we sent out on Friday morning was “Another Dream Week of Options Trading”, wherein we patted ourselves on the back for connecting on some serious options gainers every day of the week.

We would continue that trend with Friday’s fresh options ideas, offering up four separate ideas and hitting big on each and every one of them. Take a look at the incredible single session gains that were available to ourselves and anyone who caught our premarket report. Out of all four of our highlighted target ranges, multibag gains were there for the taking regardless of the chosen strike price.

SQ Weekly $177.50-185 Calls 
$177.50: 6.07-23.60 (+289%)
$180: 4.08-20.77 (+409%)
$182.50: 2.53-17.94 (+609%)

Two of our options plays from Friday were high profile marijuana-related stocks, a sector that we have a high interest in, and in addition to logging massive gains on the options front, the stocks themselves also outperformed many others on on the day and into the premarket this morning.  TLRY has run from 8.45-14.36 while CGC increased from 21.90 to 27.25. Those moves made the following gains possible for our designated options targets: 

CGC Weekly $21-21.50 Calls
$21: .92-4.00 (+335%)
$21.50: .70-3.40 (+386%)

TLRY Weekly $7.50-8.50 Calls
$7.50: 1.00-4.43 (+343%)
$8: .44-4.00 (+809%)
$8.50: .31-3.50 (+1029%)

It appears we are witnessing a revitalization of the cannabis sector, which we have long been touting as a favorite market space of ours. Since the first Green Rush in 2012, we have been extremely interested in the marijuana industry and we could be on the verge of another big green wave of success! For that reason, we will dedicate our entire extended watchlist to cannabis plays today.

Moderna Inc. MRNA

We began tracking MRNA at the end of February, initially tagging the stock on February 27th and then again on March 16th. After seeing a low of 19.31 following that report, MRNA has been making steady headway in its run up the chart which has persisted for more than a month now.

Yesterday we saw a new recorded high of 41.55, which represents an overall increase of 115% since we began following the activity in MRNA.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TLRY, DCTH Updates & More

Tilray, Inc. TLRY – Update

We’ve been tracking TLRY since last Tuesday, and in that time not only has the stock made an incredible move, (87.50 to nearly $260 in premarket trading today: +165% ) but the options we signaled at the time, the TLRY 09/21 $91-93 Calls, have also made huge gains.

Here are the updated ranges on the options contracts, but please note that all of these will almost certainly be trading over $100 after TLRY’s eye popping premarket increases this morning:

$91 Calls – Range: 6.43-58.23 – Max Gain: 805%
$92 Calls – Range: 5.51-57.50 – Max Gain: 944%
$93 Calls – Range: 5.23-60.00 – Max Gain: 1047%

Because TLRY is a cannabis stock and is drawing a ton of attention to the space right now, and because we are heading into the hottest time of the year for cannabis stocks we are, as always, keeping a close eye on the pot sector.

Cronos Group, Inc. CRON is one other play from that space which has also showed some interesting trading activity. We began watching it a couple weeks ago, and despite some pullback, the stock regained all that ground and is currently testing resistance at 13.39. A break of that price should make things much more interesting for CRON.

Several other cannabis related plays to keep an eye on, but by no means an exhaustive list:

NXTTF, MYMMF, APHQF, RVVTF, TBPMF, SPRWF, INSY, AGTK, ACBFF, CANN, NGTF, MSRT, POTN, PNTV, CNBX, OWCP, GCAN



Delcath Systems, Inc. DCTH

We also want to swing back around for an update on another hot stock we recently signaled interest in, with DTCH. We slotted this play into our watchlist roughly three weeks ago on August 28th as the stock was trading as low as 1.76. It has since reached a new high of 5.60, which works out to an increase of 218%

More Quick Updates: Both of the stocks we mentioned in yesterday’s report also set new highs. Here are those highs, along with the total possible gains that they’ve provided since our next most recent alerts on these plays:

New Age Beverage Holdings, Inc. NBEV
