Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GNCA Review & More

OPTIONS REVIEW

We wrapped things up on Friday by going over some of our successes for the week,. and we also provided readers with a couple of quick strike options ideas for Friday’s session itself. It should come as no surprise, given the sheer numbers of winners we routinely unearth, that both of our ideas proved to be excellent chances to finish the week on a very high note.

Here are the ideas along with the total possible gains that could have been achieved on the day.

OKTA Weekly $111-113 Calls
$111 Calls – Range: 2.20-8.62  – Max Gain: 292%
$112 Calls – Range: 1.81-7.69 – Max Gain: 325%
$113 Calls – Range: 1.28-6.20 – Max Gain: 384%

BIG 06/21 $30-32.50 Calls
$30 Calls – Range: .15-.35   – Max Gain: 133%
$32.50 Calls – Range: .05-.15 – Max Gain: 200%

SPY OPTIONS:
If the SPY can break 275.27, we’ll be looking at the Weekly $275.50 Calls, and if it falls below 274.50, we’ll be tracking the Weekly $274 Puts.


Genocea Biosciences, Inc. GNCA

We originally began tracking GNCA in our very first report of the new year (01/02) and we wanted to follow up with it now, five months later, as we are very impressed with where the stock has ended up. The stock actually set its 2019 low of 2.50 on January 2nd and it hasn’t looked back since.

By the end of February, the stock had doubled to five dollars, and now, it has doubled again. This morning in premarket trading, we’ve witnessed a new of 12.22 from GNCA, representing an total rise of 388% over our observed low. We’re going to be very interested to see what it’s going to do in this newfound blue-sky territory.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas

Fresh Options Ideas

We’re going to start off the new trading week by identifying a couple of options ideas we’re seeing based on the chart setups of Under Armour Inc. (UAA) and CSX Corp (CSX).

In both cases, the stocks have been on a bit of a backslide, but went on to record bullish sessions on Friday. We’re going to look for confirmed reversals on both of these, and be ready with some options ideas if they can establish more sustained rebounds. On each chart, there are gaps to the upside, which is another thing we look for.

For Under Armour, which is giving off a strong multiple-bottom signal, we’re going to track the UAA 09/01 $17-19 Calls, and for CSX Railroads, we’ll want to look after the CSX 09/01 $51-53 Calls.


ImmunoGen Inc. IMGN

We also want to keep IMGN on our radars as we kick things off this week. We signaled it in Friday’s premarket report and it had a modest yet solid session on the heels of an earnings beat. We saw a low of 6.29, and this morning in early trading the stock has reached a high of 7.41.  While that’s only an 18% rise at the moment, we’ll want to keep an eye peeled for another bullish session.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Best Buy Co. Inc. BBY

Our primary area of focus in terms of fresh picks in yesterday’s premarket report was in post-earnings options ideas, and essentially everything worked out in our favor, beginning with our ideas for the Best Buy chain, which were the BBY Weekly $55-58 Calls.

All seven sets of contracts in our highlighted range gave traders a chance at HUGE multi-bag gains on the day ranging from a triple all the way to a TWELVE-bagger! 

$55 Calls
– Range: 1.60-6.90 – Max Gain: 341%
$55.50 Calls – Range: 1.12-6.19 – Max Gain: 453%
$56 Calls – Range: 1.00-5.80 – Max Gain: 480%
$56.50 Calls – Range: .61-5.21 – Max Gain: 754%
$57 Calls – Range: .50-4.90 – Max Gain: 880%
$57.50 Calls – Range: .35-4.12 – Max Gain: 1077%
$58 Calls – Range: .29-3.97 – Max Gain: 1269%


Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF

Our ANF calls didn’t disappoint either, despite the fact that Abercrombie’s was a much more mixed earnings release.  We said we’d be looking at the ANF Weekly $13 & $13.50 Calls, and saw some solid moves out of both.

The $13 Calls ran from .63 to 1.05 for an intraday push of 67% while the $13.50’s traded in a range from .35-.50, posting an intraday pop of 43%

Based on the present look of the ANF chart, we’ll still want to track these plays heading into the long weekend, but be forewarned, dealing with weekly options contracts on a Friday is for expert traders ONLY!

Big Lots, Inc. BIG – Fresh Idea

We’ve had so much options trading success this earnings season, there’s no reason not to add in a couple more fresh ideas before we break for the holiday weekend. 

Big Lots beat on profits and raised guidance in its premarket release today. With no weekly contracts to look at, we’ll put the BIG 06/16 $55 & 57.50 Calls on watch in the weeks ahead.

_____

ULTA Beauty, Inc. ULTA – This play is gapping up hard after its own earnings beat yesterday. We’ll want to keep an eye on the ULTA Weekly $302.50-310 Calls (Again, to be considered by expert traders only)



Coin Citadel CCTL

We offered up a few bitcoin related stocks to watch yesterday in light of the hysteria over bitcoin reaching all-time highs, and the one that outperformed the rest turned out to be CCTL.

Its volatile swings provided solid chances in both the morning and afternoon. First it ran from .0004 to .0007 (+75%), followed by a pullback to .0003 and subsequent 100% run-back to .0006.
