Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FB Options

Facebook, Inc. FB – Options Idea

With the half day of trading today, and the general subdued sense of the holiday, we don’t expect this session to be full of much excitement, but we have identified an idea that we can watch into next week and possibly beyond.

Facebook has been in a downward pattern for several months, and as you can see on the chart below, produced a significant bottom bounce signal. In fact, all of our favorite indicators seem to suggest an up-cycle could be in the cards heading into the new year. For that possibility, we are going to highlight a range of options calls that we can observe and potentially take advantage of in the days and weeks ahead.

We’re going to put the FB 01/18 $135-145 Calls on watch, and if the stock can rebound back toward its previous resistance area, those should be in pretty good shape.

Wells Fargo & Co. WFC $56.50-54.50 Puts


Genesis Healthcare, Inc. GEN – Bottom Watch

We would like to place GEN on bottom watch this morning, after taking notice of the chart setup on our routine scan this morning.

As you can see from the included snapshot, we have a number of factors contributing to the stock’s attractive bottom setup. The stock has been falling sharply all week, cruising down toward its 200DMA at an alarming rate. Additionally, we have a MACD which is exhibiting unsustainable downward divergence, and an RSI indicating the stock has just entered extremely oversold territory.

This is exactly the sort of setup we look for in potential bottom bounce plays, and we’re going to slot GEN for observation in coming sessions to be ready for that eventuality.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LULU Recap & More

Lululemon Athletica Inc. LULU – Update

We signaled a range of calls in the LULU options chain in the wake of the company’s earnings beat yesterday morning, and we were met with some fantastic opportunities at huge single-session gains.

Every one of the five sets of contracts, the LULU Weekly $83-85 Calls, produced a shot at double-bag gains on the day, which were as follows:

$83 Calls
– Range: 1.60-4.50  – Max Gain: 181%
$83.50 Calls – Range: 1.25-4.15 – Max Gain: 232%
$84 Calls – Range: 1.20-3.80– Max Gain: 217%
$84.50 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.90 – Max Gain: 190%
$85 Calls – Range: .82-3.24 – Max Gain: 295%

With such solid moves in just one day, LULU doesn’t owe us anything, but we’re still going to roll up our potential strike range and monitor the Weekly $85-86 Calls* as we finish out this short trading week.

Fresh Options Idea:
Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ Weekly $222.50-230 Calls*

*Do NOT trade weekly calls on the last day of the week unless you are an expert level trader!


Elev8 Brands, Inc. VATE

As you can see from our commentary on the annotated chart below, we’re interested in the setup of the VATE chart at the moment. The stock just began to consolidate off of a sizable surge that had persisted for most of this month.

We’re going to put it on bottom watch, and look for an eventual rebound in the event it can maintain support at or above the .05-mark.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DE Review & More

Deere & Co. DE – Options Review

We were following a group of ideas in the DE options chain last week, and saw some really nice activity both before and after the Thanksgiving holiday. Despite only a half-day of trading on Friday,  our targets, the Deere & Co. DE Weekly $143-146 Calls,  enjoyed new highs on the day.

We mentioned to our readers that despite seeing multi-bag gains prior to the holiday, it appeared as if they were in line for further moves to the upside, and we were absolutely correct. The following figures represent our observed lows from Wednesday morning, and the subsequent ranges to Friday’s impressive new highs:

DE Weekly $143-146 Calls
$143 Calls –
Range:  .82-4.80 – Max Gain: 485%
$144 Calls – Range:  .50-3.82 – Max Gain: 664%
$145 Calls – Range:  .30-2.80 – Max Gain: 833%
$146 Calls – Range: .19-1.86 – Max Gain: 879%

To throw into contrast the kind of success we’ve had over the past few weeks with our options trading ideas, keep in mind that these gains are mild compared to some of the ones we’ve seen!


Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

We slated MARA for observation a few weeks ago back on November 2nd, and at the time, we’d witness a low of 1.19 in the stock. Despite shortened holiday weeks being traditionally subdued, that did not apply to MARA last week as it streaked to some very pleasing new highs. On Friday’s short day, the stock ran all the way up to 6.04, marking an increase of 408% for the month of November.

This morning, it gapped up like crazy, seeing a high of 16.99 in premarket trading, which extended that range to a walloping 1328% The stock did come back down to Earth, but is still trading higher than Friday’s highs, so we’re very curious to see how the start to this fresh and full trading week is going to play out for MARA.


VelocityShares 3x Long Nat Gas ETN (UGAZ)

We also want to begin tracking the activity in UGAZ, a Natural Gas ETN. Not only is this Note approaching heavily oversold territory after having just set a new annual low on Friday, but we’re heading into the thick of the cold weather season, when such heating fuels go into much higher demand.

We’re already seeing a gap up this morning, and will put  UGAZ on an extended term bottom watch. A hypothetical return to its prices from early this summer would approach a double-bagger on the chart from here.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Week Kicks Off on High Note


Yesterday, despite the fact that the markets as a whole were on pace for the longest sustained backslide in more than half a decade, we still managed to see new highs in a few of the stocks we’ve been tracking.  We also observed solid intraday performances from a couple other plays that were on our morning watchlist, so we’ll begin today with a quick roundup of all these movers.

Dolat Ventures, Inc. DOLV

We signaled our interest in tracking DOLV in Thursday’s report, and at the time we’d witness the stock trading at a low of .0056.

Yesterday concluded with a new high, and the recording of three straight bullish sessions since then, with DOLV trading in an intraday range from .0125 to .019, for a gain of 52% It brings the updated figure on the three session swing we’ve seen so far to an impressive 239%


MyDx, Inc. MYDX

We circled back to MYDX, a stock we’ve tracked all the way from a February low of .001, last Wednesday, while it was trading as low as .0077. It too has put together a multi-day run leading to impressive new highs once again yesterday.

The stock saw a daily range of .017-.0226, which represents an increase of 32% on the day, 193% from last Wednesday’s low, and a ridiculous 2160% from our witnessed low in February!


U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM

Here’s another stock whose low (.014) came during the month of February, following our report on the 27th. We’ve been all over it since then , and in two sustained bursts it has absolutely soared.

After reminding our readers of that fact in yesterday’s premarket report, USRM managed to hit yet another new high for us. It traded from .07-.112 for a daily boost of 60% and the new high recorded pushed our overall observed gain on this play in just one months time to an even 700%


Honorable Mentions

We placed a couple of plays in yesterday’s extended watchlist that didn’t blow our minds by any stretch of the imagination, but did log some solid intraday increases that warrant continued observation for each of them.

Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPRX
Daily Range: 1.63-2.07 – Max Gain: 27%

Impax Laboratories, Inc. IPXL
Daily Range: 10.50-13.00 – Max Gain: 24%
