Campbell Soup Co. CPB 06/29 $39.50-42.00


Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. TNDM – Recap

Another pick of ours that we want to return to was one we made midway through last month, in TNDM. The stock has has essentially been on one continuous bull run since that time.

From the 11.38 low it registered on the morning on our initial alert (May 16th) the stock gradually reached a new high on Friday coming in at 25.50. That’s an increase of 124% in just five weeks! We would consider that beyond respectable for a stock that was trading over eleven bucks when we first called it.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL Options Idea

Delta Airlines, Inc. DAL

To start things off this morning, we’re immediately drawn to the most recognizable name on the premarket earnings calendar for the day. Delta has been beaten back over the past few weeks, to the point of approaching heavily oversold territory, especially as the PPS fell below the 50DMA for the first time since the second week of February.  When that did occur, the stock launched into a month-long bullish pattern. All of this is plainly evident on the chart snapshot below.

With this morning’s beat on earnings as a catalyst, we’ll look for a similar pattern to emerge this time around, and begin tracking the DAL 04/13 51.50-53 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Ideas

BioMarin Pharmaceutical, Inc. BMRN

BioMarin had a really solid performance yesterday after we signaled some contracts in our premarket report, the BMRN 03/16 $80 & 85 Calls. The stock ran from 81.01 to 84.19 facilitating some modest but solid intraday moves in our contracts.

The $80 Calls ran from 4.40-6.00 for a 32% rise, and the $85′s traded from 2.70-3.50, a gain of 26%

With a strong close at 83.28, and a lot of ground to cover to recoup the losses the stock has seen in the month of February, we’ll look for BMRN to establish a more sustained recovery pattern, and we may see some further increases in these contracts, which still have over a month until expiration.


Under Armour, Inc. UAA

We want to formulate an idea for Under Armour on the heels of the company’s earnings report this morning. The stock had already begun to trend off of its bottom a few sessions ago, and despite posting a Q4 loss, sales were better than expected and the stock is gapping up pretty significantly here in the premarket.

We’re going to want to keep tabs on the UAA Weekly $15.50-16.50 Calls, which could bring us sizable gain opportunities in the day or days to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Movers & More

Options Review

We absolutely crushed it on the options front over the past few weeks, and the fresh ideas we floated in our premarket report on Friday morning were no exception. We signaled our interest in tracking a broad range of contracts in both the Foot Locker and Verizon chains, and most of those ideas were successful in providing traders with a chance at sizable single session gains.

Foot Locker, Inc. FL Weekly $38-42 Calls
$38 Calls –
Range: 1.17-2.98 – Max Gain: 155%
$39 Calls – Range: .45-1.94 – Max Gain: 331%
$40 Calls – Range: .20-1.00 – Max Gain: 400%

The $41 and $42 Calls ended up being too far out of the money to see any notable activity, but the contracts that did move, did so very nicely.
_______

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls
$45 Calls – Range: 1.08 -1.66 – Max Gain: 54%
$46 Calls – Range: .59-1.10 – Max Gain: 86%
$47 Calls – Range: .39-.67 – Max Gain: 72%
$48 Calls – Range: .23-.42 – Max Gain: 83%

In the case of Verizon, it appears the stock is getting a push from an analyst upgrade, news of special holiday deals the company is offering, and a great chart setup even before last week’s earnings beat. We seem to have come along at an opportune time, and could very well see further gains in these contracts. We’ll definitely continue to track these ideas.


Aurora Cannabis, Inc. ACBFF

Aurora was among the many cannabis stocks we highlighted a couple of weeks ago in our Cannabis Commentary report,. and between that week, and last week, the stock made a very nice run. It traded up from a low of 2.777 to a high of 5.45; a move of 96%

That was followed by a consolidation, and this week were going to want to watch out for ACBFF to find support and potentially make another run at its previous resistance point. The company also reported a possible takeover of another firm this morning, so we’re really going to keep paying close attention to Aurora this week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WMT Options Recap & More

Wal-Mart Stores, inc. WMT – Options Review

We signaled a wide range of options contracts in the Wal Mart chain yesterday, the WMT Weekly $92-96 Calls, and every single one of them produced the opportunity for huge single session gains. It was a post-earnings beat idea, and those have a tendency to work well in our favor.

WMT made a considerable move which allowed for multi-bag gains regardless of which strike price was selected. Those potential profits were as follows:

$92 Calls – Range: 2.55-7.40 – Max Gain: 190%
$92.50 Calls – Range: 2.13-7.15 – Max Gain: 236%
$93 Calls – Range: 1.42-6.58 – Max Gain: 363%
$94 Calls – Range:1.03-5.53 – Max Gain: 437%
$95 Calls – Range: .60-4.50 – Max Gain: 650%
$96 Calls – Range: .23-3.50 – Max Gain: 1421%

It appears as if WMT could keep this train rolling today, so we may look to roll up to the WMT Weekly $98-100 Calls* to stay close to the money.



Fresh Options Ideas:

We also want to put a few contracts from the Foot Locker and Verizon chains on watch today. Footlocker currently has a ripe bottom-play setup happening on the chart, while Verizon is another post-earnings beat idea.

FL Weekly $38-42 Calls*

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls

* Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s just about as risky as it gets.
