Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off the Short Week

Options Ideas

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) –  It’s been awhile since we dabbed in some SPY options and the fund is gapping up moderately in the premarket, so as we kick off this holiday-shortened 3.5 day week, we thought we’d float an idea for some calls across everyone’s desk this morning. We’re going to focus on the SPY 11/23 $218.50-220 Calls. for possible daytrades and/or swing trades over the next few sessions.

Given the Thanksgiving break on Thursday followed by just a half day for Black Friday, these contracts, which would normally be weeklies expiring on Friday, will instead expire Wednesday afternoon, so we’ll be monitoring them up to that point.

We’ll hold to this idea as long as the SPY doesn’t dip below that 218.50-mark on any pullbacks.
______

Tyson Foods, Inc. TSN – Next up on the menu of options ideas today is Tyson, which we’re going to go in the opposite direction with, signaling some puts to track on the heels of an earnings miss.

We’re going to zero in on the TSN Weekly $62-59 Puts in the event that TSN records a continued backslide. Unlike the previously mentioned idea, these do expire at the end of Friday’s session (1PM) so we’ll have the entire week to watch these contracts.

______

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – An old-time favorite from the past is making another appearance this morning, in PBR. We noticed the stock coming back down recently after a surge well past the $10 mark last month, and this morning, it is re-testing the $10-level with a solid premarket gap-up.

We’re going te set ourselves up tracking the PBR $9.50-10.50 Calls (also expiring Friday @1PM), which could be in line for some serious moves if the stock can maintain its present momentum through the session and perhaps over the course of this short week.


Dominovas Energy Corp. DNRG

This is a play that we’ve mentioned on occasion in the past, most recently two Friday’s ago, when we tagged it at .0014 and saw a decent 44% run to .0023 the following day.

Since then the stock has consolidated back down to that .0014 level, and we’re noticing a PR out this morning that could help DNRG on its next leg-up. (>>View PR)

Las Vegas Sands Corp. LVS – Options Recap

To correspond with the surprise news that Macau gambling revs broke a two year pattern of disappointment, we prepared ourselves with a few options ideas yesterday, and while they all provided opportunities to an extent, the one that shone through as the clear winner was Las Vegas Sands.

We zeroed in on the LVS Weekly $51-52.50 Calls for potential daytrading chances, and regardless of the chosen strike price, multi-bag intraday gains were there for the taking. The possible profits were as follows:

$51 Calls – Range: 1.18-2.83 – Max Gain: 140%
$51.50 Calls – Range: .85-3.36 – Max Gain: 295%
$52 Calls – Range: .40-1.82 – Max Gain: 355%
$52.50 Calls – Range: .30-1.62 – Max Gain: 440%



Kibush Capital Corp. DLCR

After alerting DLCR in Wednesday morning’s premarket report, the stock has gone on a heck of a two-day run for us. Yesterday we mentioned that we’d keep an eye out for a continuation of the uptrend, and got just what we were looking for as the stock streaked to new highs for us.

It traded in a range from .0036-.0071, falling just shy of a double-bagger with a 97% intraday push, and from the low we observed on Wednesday morning subsequent to our initial report (.00297), it represented a two-session overall increase of 139%


Ocean Rig UDW Inc. ORIG

We’ve also got a potential bottom-play hitting our scanner this morning in ORIG, so we wanted to make mention of that as well.

All it takes is a quick glance at the chart to see why we’ll be interested in tracking the activity in this stock in sessions to come. We’ve got a strong double-bottom signal, a bullish MACD cross in progress, and the RSI is indicating that ORIG is presently oversold.

These are all factors we routinely search for, and when coupled with a sizable gap on the chart to the upside, and the fact that it was trading at three times its current price less than a month ago, we’ll certainly want to watch this one closely.

Veeva Systems, Inc. VEEV –  Options Update

We closed out yesterday’s report with a fresh options trading idea in the VEEV chain, and were not disappointed with the results.

We focused on VEEV after the company posted a mammoth year-over-year sales increase in its premarket earnings report. Our specific targets of interest were the VEEV Weekly $39-42 Calls and it came as no surprise to see solid intraday gain opportunities from each and every set of those contracts.

$39 Calls – Range: 1.55-2.25 – Max Gain: 45%
$40 Calls – Range: .85-1.53 – Max Gain: 80%
$41 Calls – Range: .50-.90 – Max Gain: 80%
$42 Calls – Range: .25-.50 – Max Gain: 100%


Kibush Capital Corp. DLCR

We placed DLCR on watch in yesterday’s premarket report, and were instantly met with chances for intraday gains by this subpenny swinger. From its low of .00297 first thing in the morning, the stock eventually reached a high .0046, representing a move of 55%

It marked the third straight session that DLCR has recorded higher highs and higher lows, and with a strong close at .0044, we’ll keep an eye out for continuation of the trend. For the stock to retain our interest it we’ll want to see it hold support at or above .0037 on any pullbacks.
