AXSM Runner, Options Ideas

Axsome Therapeutics, Inc. AXSM 

We’ve got a major recent success story to tell with AXSM today. We highlighted this stock roughly seven weeks ago in our report on October 16th, and AXSM has done very little else but continue to press upward, setting new highs on a practically daily basis.

We would tag in yesterday’s report once again before seeing the stock attain new highs for the umpteenth time in recent weeks.  Our observed low following our initial alert is 20.48, and as of yesterday’s brand new high of 47.24, that marks a fantastic swing of 131% There’s no telling where this wild ride will let off, with the stock having already been firmly in Blue Sky territory for well over a week now.


Fresh Options Ideas

Workday Inc. WDAY reported on earnings in the post-market yesterday, and despite a beat on sales and earnings, the company’s forecast precipitated a shakedown of the stock. We’re going to sit on the bearish side of the fence and monitor to the WDAY Weekly $167.50-165 Puts

Excelon Corp. EXC is simply a double-bottom, potential extended-term rebound idea that we want to offer up. We’re going to begin tracking the EXC 02/21 $45-47 Calls, with the stock looking due for a recovery at any time.

Thanks to our dear trader friend, Mark S. who has been a longtime follower of ours, for sending us a PM in the premarket relaying the fact that the company just reinstated with the SOS.

That led to us including BLGI in yesterday’s extended watchlist, and the stock subsequently made a move from .0069-.0265, for an upswing of  284% on the day!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Movers

Options Updates: 

We’re going to start out this morning by going over some recent extended term options ideas we’ve had and the success they’re enjoying after Friday’s market rebound from Wednesday’s big dip. We are also seeing the makings of a continuation of Friday’s momentum today, so we expect to see the gains listed on our ideas to below to be expanded with another bullish session. 

Agilent technologies, Inc. A – Our timing with Agilent couldn’t have been much better, citing the A 9/20 $65-70 Calls as our area of interest on Wednesday. The recovery that would follow for stocks in general would  help push those targets to some extremely solid intraweek runs.

$65 Calls – Range: 3.50-6.71 – Max Gain: 92%
$67.50 Calls – Range: 2.30-4.48  – Max Gain: 95%
$70 Calls – Range: 1.35-2.80 – Max Gain: 107%

Boeing Corp. BA – We have been tracking a range of Boeing calls since early this month, signaling our interest in the BA 09/06 $340-350 Calls on the morning of August 5th. We’ve seen some pretty good activity from four out of those five sets of contracts, and will continue to monitor for further gains as we mentioned above.

$340 Calls – Range: 2.80-4.64 – Max Gain: 66%
$342.50 Calls – Range: 2.10-3.70  – Max Gain: 59%
$345 Calls – Range: 1.08-2.85 – Max Gain: 164%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options for the Week & More

Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. ARKA – Update

We placed RKDA on watch on Friday morning’s premarket report. We caught it off of one of our routine premarket scans, and determined that a bounce play was a good possibility. Not only did we get what we were looking for, but the stock looks ready to gap-up once again this morning.

From a daily low of 2.70 the stock reached as high as 4.97, marking an intraday increase of 84% When measured to today’s new premarket high of 6.42, it works out to a two day swing of 138% and gives us good cause to continue to monitor its activity as we open up a new trading week.


DXC Technologies, Inc. DXC – Recap 

We went bearish on DXC in Friday’s report, offering up an options idea of the DXC 08/16 $40-37.50 Puts. Both of those contracts performed well as DXC had the floor fall out from beneath it, posting the worst daily loss in nearly two decades.

The $40 Puts ran from 2.66-5.00, representing an intraday pop of 88% while the $37.50’s soared into multibag gainer territory with a move from 1.00-3.10, a gain of 210%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MIK Options & More

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Recap

We went bullish on the SPY in our premarket report yesterday, and thanks to two distinct intraday pushes for the markets, there were opportunities across the board for our highlighted contracts throughout the session.

Those targets were the daily SPY 03/18 $281-282 Calls, and we saw significant moves from all three. The $281.50 Calls traded in a range from .34-1.06 for an overall upswing of 212% while the $282’s traded up from .15 to .58, a gain of 287% (We mistakenly lost exact data for the $281 calls, but the gain opportunities were very similar to those of the other two strike points.) 


The Michaels Companies, Inc. MIK

We also want to signal a set of contracts on MIK, which was the one listing on this morning’s earnings calendar that jumped out to us the most. Michaels posted an earnings beat, but also happens to be trading near its annual lows.

We’re going to approach this like we would any other play with bottom-bouncer written all over it, by signaling some longer-term calls to give ourselves some extra time to see the recovery play out. We’re going to radar the MIK 04/18 $12.50 Calls and monitor their activity in the days and weeks ahead.
