Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HEAR Review & More

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR – Review

Our primary focus has always been to find near-term trading opportunities first, assigning longer-term calls a secondary priority. However, we’ve had quite a bit of good fortune this year in identifying stocks that have gone on to have considerable extended runs.

HEAR is one such stock, that we first signaled for observation on April 9th, at which time the stock was trading for as little as 2.76. Over the ensuing nine weeks, we have seen an incredible, near-continuous bull run that has resulted in new highs of 23.20 yesterday. That works out to an increase of 740% over a span of a little over two months!

Being in blue skies, there’s no telling what new highs we might see in HEAR; it’s certainly plausible to believe we may see our total observed gain reach a thousand percent at some point in the near future. At the rate things have been going, it’s certainly not an unreasonable thought.


H&R Block, Inc. HRB – Fresh Idea

We also want to provide a quick update on our bearish options idea from yesterday’s premarket report, the HRB Weekly $26-24 Puts. We formulated this range after noticing the stock getting kicked hard despite posting an earnings beat in the post-market on Tuesday.

HRB did gap down a little too far for the $26′s to see much action, but we had respectable chances to profit off of the other two contracts in the range. The $25 Puts ran from .65-1.05 for a gain of 62%, while the $24′s put up a double-bag performance with a 133% rip from .15-.35.


Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We tagged GALT on Tuesday morning after noticing a big surge in activity, and its run has continued nicely over the course of the week.

We’ve now observed a solid 37% bullish move from 5.83-8.00, and will be on the lookout for the possibility of more new highs.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JACK Update & More

Jack in the Box, Inc. JACK – Update

As a fresh options trading idea on Friday morning, we submitted the Jack 07/20 $80-90 Calls for observation after noticing the company’s solid earnings report and premarket gap-up. Although we passed over the weeklies for the July 20th calls for a bit more of an extended idea, it took no time at all for those contracts to see significant appreciation.

We’re pleased to say that each of the three selected targets produced respectable single-session moves, and will remain on our radar moving forward. Those potential gains were as follows: ,

$80 Calls – Range: 3.70-5.78 – Max Gain: 56%
$85 Calls – Range: 1.42-2.58 – Max Gain: 82%
$90 Calls – Range: .50-.80 – Max Gain: 60%


aTyr Pharma, Inc. LIFE

We noticed that LIFE woke from a slumber late last week, and began to trend off of its annual lows. We’re going to put it on the radar as a potential recovery play. As you can see, the stock was ridiculously oversold heading into last week, following a massive beating from roughly a month ago.

We believe there is a fair chance that the stock could return to the levels from prior to that backslide, which would spell significant gains from the current PPS.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMD, TJX & More

Social Detention, Inc. SODE

Our first order of business this morning is to return to SODE, a stock we recently published a special report on a little under two weeks ago. Immediately following that, we would observe a low of .10 in the stock, which has given way to a very respectable move since then.

Yesterday in a surge of price action and volume, SODE achieved a new high of .153, marking a 53% move in just a shade over a week. We’re going to want to maintain our watch over this play and look for it to establish higher highs and higher lows, continuing this current uptrend.


The TJX Companies, Inc. TJX – Recap

Yesterday in the premarket we reported some excellent progress with the TJX options ideas we presented in our report from May 22nd, the TJX 06/15 $85-90 Calls.

Based on the big move the stock itself made thereafter during yesterday’s session, we have to revisit our ideas again to provide the impressive new highs that were attained, along with our total possible gains so far.

$85 Calls – Range: 2.14-7.86 – Max Gain: 267%
$87.50 Calls – Range: .90-5.56 – Max Gain: 517%
$90 Calls – Range: .35-3.14 – Max Gain: 797%


Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD 

Speaking of solid calls, we made one on AMD, tagging the stock for observation in our report from April 26th.  The move it has made since then is awe-inspiring- after having traded for as little as 10.61 on that day, the stock hasn’t looked back during what has been a month-long bullish surge.

Yesterday, AMD reached a new 52-week high of 14.98, which registers as a highly respectable increase of 41% in just under five weeks.

The stock has been in blue sky breakout mode for the past two sessions now, so it’s going to be very interesting to see where its path takes it from here. There may even be a dip and rip opportunity at some point as profit takers enter the mix, so we’ll want to stay light on our feet.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TNTR Recap & More

Tintri, Inc. TNTR

Our bottom call of TNTR yesterday morning to kick off the short week could not have been more perfectly timed. For more than two months the stock had been crushed down ever lower, reaching a new 52-week low once again on Friday.

We noted a significant swell in the amount of short interest in the stock, and now it appears as if the squeeze is on- the bottom bounce we said we’d be watching closely for happened right on cue and it was no small move. The stock saw its low at .36 and subsequently ran to .71, marking an intraday rip of 97%

We’re going to want to watch out for a more sustained recovery, and look to TNTR to establish higher lows over the coming sessions.


Dicks Sporting Goods, Inc. DKS

Dicks posted its quarterly report, and took off like a rocket in the premarket today, shooting up over 20% on a hefty earnings neat and raised guidance going forward.

We’re always in the mood to take advantage of a rapid spike in price action and volatility. We like to use options to leverage the activity to our benefit, and in this particular case, we are going to want to cast a wide net and keep a close eye on the DKS Weekly $35-40 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BMXI Recap & More

Brookmount Explorations Inc. BMXI

Having written our daily newsletters for such a long time, occasionally we run back across a stock that we haven’t seen in quite some time, and that was the case with BMXI. Before yesterday’s signal on it, we hadn’t mentioned it since May of 2012 back when it was regularly trading in the subpenny range.

It found its way to our radar screens and into our premarket report yesterday morning on word of a promotion (Disclosure: We were not involved in the deal), and what followed was one of the biggest breakouts the stock has ever had. From a low of .0831 it soared to a new all-time high of .1279 . That’s an intraday gain of 54% which came on enormous volume.


Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Options Idea

Our regular followers know that we’re always on the lookout to take advantage of the hype-fueled moves that stocks tend to make following an earnings report, using their options chains. Delta whiffed on profits this quarter, falling well short of expectations on the Street, and despite issuing solid guidance for Q3, we want to signal a range of short-term puts to watch into the end of the week.

DAL stock was already at a top, and in a price range where profit-takers could be a factor as well. For that reason, we are going to radar the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts.


OncBioMune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. OBMP

OBMP had an update that it issued this morning on its mid-stage cancer treatment (>>View PR), but our interest is really being drawn to this play for technical reasons.

As you can see below, the stock recently established a new annual low, followed by a rebound off of that low, and now it is making its way back down to find support. We will be interested in this as a potential rebound play in the event that the stock maintains support at or above a nickel. We’re presently looking at an impending bearish cross on the MACD so we’ll see if the stock can hang in there without losing more than a penny off of its current PPS.
