Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, RMRK Recaps & More


Options Recap –
We cast a pretty wide net with respect to options ideas in the retail sector in our premarket report yesterday morning, and our efforts didn’t go unrewarded. Both EXPR and AEO provided us with some nice chances.

Express, Inc. EXPR – We were tracking the EXPR 09/15 $6 & $7 Calls. The $6′s traded in a range from .45 -.92 for a gain of 104%, while the $7′s logged an even 100% double-bag run from .15-.30.

American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO –   For American Eagle, we were looking at the AEO Weekly $12 & 12.50 Calls. The $12′s recorded our biggest options gainer of the day with a 212% move from .08-.25, and the $12.50′s were another even 100% push , trading from .05-.10 on the day.

More Ideas -
We’ll keep the post-earnings retail options train rolling today with two fresh sets of ideas using the Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF and Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR chains. We’ll have the ANF Weekly $10 & $11 Calls, and the DLTR Weekly $78-82 Calls on watch as we head into week’s end.


Rimrock Gold Corp . RMRK

We included RMRK in yesterday morning’s premarket report, after noticing some abnormal activity building up in the previous session.

It was a good thing that we did, because yesterday’s performance from the stock was explosive. It traded in a range from .0006 to .0025 on the day, for a fantastic single-session rip of 316%

The move occurred on volume of more than 1.8 billion shares traded; an all-time high for RMRK.

Blue Horsesehoe Stocks: DLTR, MMEX Recaps & More

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

We’ve got updates on our DLTR options idea for send morning in a row today. Just to recap for those who may have missed it, we formulated an idea for last Wednesday‘s premarket report, the  DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls.

With a very nice multi-day bullish run for DLTR in effect and continuing yesterday brought the stock to new highs once again, which means updates to our observed ranges on these contracts that we began tracking last week.

$78 Calls – Range: .51-2.22 – Max Gain: 335%
$78.50 Calls – Range: .63-2.05 – Max Gain: 225%
$79 Calls – Range:  .48-1.95 – Max Gain: 198%
$79.50 Calls – Range: .35-1.69- Max Gain: 383%
$80 Calls – Range: .30-1.40 – Max Gain: 367%

DLTR has now traded up from the $74 area, to nearly $80 over that spanm and in the event it breaks that $80 barrier, we would have to look at rolling up our strike prices to stay in the thick of things.


MMEX Resources Corp. MMEX

We saw a fantastic intraday run out of MMEX yesterday after once again tagging it in our premarket report. It included a continual climb throughout the session as the stock traded up from a low of .0081 first thing in the morning, to a high of .0169 just prior to the closing bell. That works out to a daily pop of 108%

Considering we alerted MMEX in last Friday morning’s report, and observed a low of .0046 at the time, we’ve now seen an overall increase of 267% from this play in just five trading days,


Athersys, Inc. ATHX

We want to swing back around for a quick mention of ATHX, which was a stock we put on our radars back in February. We would observe a low of 1.10 last month, but for the most part, ATHX just did a lot of sideways trading for the next few weeks.

All that finally began to change this week, with a run to a new high of 2.01 yesterday, marking a 83% rise off of our observed low. We may need to watch for a pullback before jumping back in for another run as the stock is now is extremely overbought territory.


Added Notes:

We want to pay attention to a couple of stocks we’ve come across in the $3-range, that  based on a number of factors, appear to be ripening for rebounds that could very well take each one to the $5 level or higher.

Leju Holdings, Ltd. LEJU – This stock has been trying to get up off of its recent relative lows, and this morning appears to be gapping nominally. We’ll be watching for a more sustained rebound.



Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CYCC
– We’ve identified a strong double-bottom signal from CYCC as well, along with the clear potential for volatility. This one’s going to go on our running watchlist as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DLTR Recap & More

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

Yesterday turned out to be a nice bullish session for DLTR, making us glad we added it as a focus in our premarket report. No sooner than we updated our readers on the DLTR options ideas we submitted in last Wednesday‘s premarket report, did they take off to new highs once again.

The DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls had already provided us with double-bag gain chances, but yesterday’s activity pushed those figures a lot higher. The following numbers represent the maximum possible gains so far over the last six trading sessions:

$78 Calls – Range: .51-2.05 – Max Gain: 301%
$78.50 Calls – Range: .63-2.05 – Max Gain: 225%
$79 Calls – Range:  .48-1.43 – Max Gain: 198%
$79.50 Calls – Range: .35-1.40- Max Gain: 300%
$80 Calls – Range: .30-1.34 – Max Gain: 347%

We can continue to keep these contracts on our radar, with more than three weeks remaining until their expiration date.


Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – Update

Another set of 04/21 options contracts that we’ve been tracking have also fared well, tacking on new highs yesterday,

We slated the PBR 04/21 $9.50 & $10 Calls for observation a week ago today, and must now swing back around to highlight the excellent moves these plays have made in a week’s time.

04/21 $9.50 Calls – Range: .18-.51 – Max Gain: 183%
04/21 $10 Calls – Range: .09-.27 – Max Gain: 200%

As stated on the above mentioned play, these contracts have more than three weeks before expiration, so we’ll continue to keep tracking their activity in coming sessions. Yesterday the stock closed just under the 200DMA of 9.69, and we’ll remain bullish on these ideas if the stock can break past that barrier.


Sphere 3D Corp. ANY

We want to make mention of ANY this morning after noticing a set of interesting circumstances. Just a few days following the closing of a $4.5M direct offering/ private placement, the company has now announced it has been awarded a $3M contract  (>>View PR)

All of this activity on the newsreel is happening concurrently with a potential reversal and rebound on the chart. The stock has been failing to satisfy its $1.00 minimum bid requirement for the better part of nine months now, and will need to get itself back above that mark or it could face delisting after just three years on the NASDAQ.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Mid-Week Review

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM

Today marks the fourth consecutive morning that we’ve addressed USRM in our premarket report, granted the fact that it has gone on a multi-day run setting new highs one after the other.

During yesterday’s session, USRM traded in a range from .096 to .1793, a fantastic intraday swing of 87%  From the low of .014 we caught immediately following our report  on February 27th, the total increase we observed in just a shade over a month amounts to an incredible 1180%

The stock closed at .125, but the volume cooled down to just slightly more than the 30-day average. We’ll remain interested in tracking USRM as long as it can continue to build higher base levels of support.


Sunshine Heart, Inc. SSH

We tagged SSH in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist, after identifying it as a possible bottom-bouncer, and ended up providing a pretty good opportunity for a quick intraday gain which could be just the start.

The stock traded in a range from 1.67 to 2.38 for a 43% pop, and perhaps more importantly, closed with strength at 2.31 having traded more than four times the monthly average volume on the day.

That performance will have us on the lookout for a possible continuation of momentum and give SSH a chance to formulate a multi-day run.


Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

We also want to give a quick update on the performances of a set of DLTR options we alerted a week ago today. The DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls have provided the following gain opportunities since then:

$78 Calls -  .51-1.18  (+131%)
$79 Calls – .48-.90 (+88%)
$80 Calls – .30-.61 (+103%)

The $78.50′s and the $79.50′s, also included in our highlighted range, also made commensurate gains to what’s listed above.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup 

All of our earnings-related options ideas from yesterday’s report saw increases during the session, so we want to kick things off today by going over those performances, as well as formulating another fresh idea.

FedEx Corp. FDX- Our idea for FDX was less about the earnings figures themselves which fell short of expectations, and more about the buoyed guidance. The investment community at large felt the same way, and as a result FDX made a really nice intraday run from just above $193, to just below $196. That allowed for our ideas, the FDX Weekly $192.50-200 Calls, to put up the following gains:

$192.50 Calls – Range: 1.86-3.96 – Max Gain: 113%
$195 Calls – Range: .90-2.96 – Max Gain: 218%
$197.50 Calls – Range: .29-2.37 – Max Gain: 717%

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR - An analyst upgrade coupled with a solid earnings report led us to signal a range of PBR calls yesterday. We mentioned the fact that we’ve had a ton of success on countless occasions in the past trading options in this play, and our streak kept on going. We offered both an idea for the weeklies as well as a couple with an April expiration for a longer-term play, (Weekly $9 Calls – 04/21 $9.50-10.00 Calls) and we saw notable gains in all of them:

Weekly $9 Calls – Range: .12-.27 – Max Gain: 125%
04/21 $9.50 Calls
- Range: .26-.34- Max Gain: 33%
04/21 $10.00 Calls
- Range: .14-.19 – Max Gain: 36%
_____

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – We also highlighted the DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls, and while they did see marginal increases, it was nothing to write home about just yet. That’s why we just wanted to remind our readers that these are longer-term idea which could take some time to show us the sort of upward moves we’re looking for.

FRESH IDEA:

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Our bearish signal on SNAP Friday led to success in the SNAP Weekly $20 Puts that we were watching. They gained 246% intraday running from .30-1.04.

Today, we want to reverse our strategy and go with some calls, the SNAP Weekly $22-23.50 Calls to be exact.


Moleculin Biotech, Inc. MBRX

We had MBRX in our extended watchlist yesterday, and were pleased with its solid performance on the day. The stock ran from 1.15 to a high of 1.51, which works out to a respectable intraday increase of 31% The move came on immense volume of more than 40X the 30-day average, so we’ll definitely be interested in continuing to track MBRX as we head into the end of the week.
