Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Options Wins

Options Reviews

General Mills, Inc. GIS – We were looking at the General Mills chain beginning
on Wednesday morning, when we designated the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls as targets of interest for the week. We got some very nice profit opportunities out of that set, with plenty of time for the possibility to realize further gains.  The $47.50 Calls rose from a low of 1.40-3.55, an upswing of 154% The $50’s traded in a range from .27-1.47, which works out to a huge jump of 444%

Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI  – On Thursday morning, we added the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls to our pool of ideas, and those really made a splash as well. In the two session span following our alert, we witnessed a move up from a low of 1.15 to a high of 4.30. That represents a rapid increase of 274%
_____

Revlon, Inc. REV – Finally, on Friday, we continued our streak of new ideas with an extended-term idea on Revlon. A pair of big insider buys was what led us to place these on watch. We’ll continue to track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls. For Friday, they each managed modest increases, with the $22.50’s running from 2.55-2.90 (+14%) and the $25’s going from 1.25-2.00 (+60%). These will be on our radar for quite some time, but got off to a nice start.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & HEMP

Options Review

We’ve placed a lot of focus on options plays this week, and thanks to the help of a solid day for the markets, we saw excellent opportunities for quick strike profits in a couple of them yesterday. Our primary order of business today is to go over the gains that have been made possible by some of our ideas.

The Netflix Inc. NFLX 01/25 $290-300 Calls were an idea we submitted in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and we saw some moderate increases in all five of those contracts, which were as follows:

$290 Calls – Range: 14.15-16.30 – Max Gain: 15%
$292.50 Calls – Range: 11.00-14.70 – Max Gain: 34%
$295 Calls – Range: 10.05-16.25 – Max Gain: 62%
$297.50 Calls – Range: 11.25-14.00 – Max Gain: 24%
$300 Calls – Range: 8.60-13.07 – Max Gain: 52%

We also formulated an idea for the SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) on Tuesday morning, the SPY Weekly $266.50-268.50 Calls, and those have flourished thanks to the bullish session for stocks in general yesterday. Here are the ranges on those contracts so far:

$266.50 Calls – Range: 1.25-3.55 – Max Gain: 184%
$267 Calls – Range: 1.02-3.20 – Max Gain: 214%
$267.50 Calls – Range: .89-2.86 – Max Gain: 221%
$268 Calls – Range: .74-2.60 – Max Gain: 251%
$268.50 Calls – Range: .66-2.28 – Max Gain: 245%

_______



Hemp, Inc. HEMP

We also wanted to make mention of HEMP, a long-time familiar play which we most recently tagged on November 30th, subsequent to which time we would observe a low of .0292.

Thanks to the passing of the farm bill in the House by a landslide, hemp and its byproducts, which includes CBD, has just been legalized at the federal level. That means big things for HEMP, and many other companies involved in CBD production and distribution. The news led to a new high of .045 for HEMP- a 54% move over our observed low from a couple of weeks ago.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Update & More


Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Update

From yesterday morning’s report, we had designated a pair of Apple options contracts,
AAPL 06/01 $167.50 & $170 Calls, and as it turned out, we got a fairly decent performance out of those over the course of the day.

The $167.50’s traded up from 4.36 to hit 6.10, marking a 40% increase, and the $170’s also fared well, trading in a range from 3.30-5.00, for a bullish move of 52%

Those contracts are going to be pushed deep into the money with the gap up occurring on the heels of yesterday’s post-market earnings beat. We’ll be looking to lock in profits at the open in expectation of a dip-and-rip pattern, and if we get what we’re looking for, we will also test the waters with some other calls, the AAPL Weekly $172.50 & $175 Calls.

Added Post-Earnings Options Idea:
Mastercard, Inc. MA Weekly $182.50-187.50 Calls


Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. SGSI

We were just commenting yesterday morning on how we tagged SGSI on April 25th,  only to see it run from .0055 that morning, and go on to rise over 100% as it ran to a high of .012.

The stock continued to put forth opportunities yesterday, trading up in a daily range from .0082 to a new high of .0129. That works out to an intraday pop of 57% and extended our overall observed move in a week’s time to an impressive 135%
