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)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Success, MNKD & More

Eleven BioTherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

Out of four focal points for yesterday morning’s premarket report, three of them worked out very nicely. From the stock side of things, we had EBIO, which we designated as a potential momentum play after noticing it picking up steam in prior sessions.

Our hunch was good, as the stock ran from a low of 2.31 to 2.955 (+28%) on roughly nine times its monthly average volume. It was a relatively modest gain, yet we did see a temporary breach of the 50DMA as well as a strong close at 2.78. It was a solid enough performance to warrant further observation.

______

MannKind Corp. MNKD - We drew attention to MNKD on Wednesday morning and just want to provide an update on its excellent progress so far. In the past two sessions since then it has traded up from a low of .44 to .68 (+55%) in two bullish sessions. We’ll be looking for a possible continuation of that trend.


Options Winners

The other two winners from yesterday were both successful options ideas that we formulated on the heels of strong earnings reports, and the gain opportunities there were quite a bit larger.

We’ve come to routinely expect huge multi-bag intraday runs when we hit on a good post-earnings idea, and that’s just what we got from every single contract we signaled.

Macy’s, Inc. M – Weekly $38-41 Calls

$38 Calls – Range: 1.52-3.85 – Max Gain: 153%
$38.50 Calls – Range: 1.27-2.90 – Max Gain: 128%
$39 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.97 – Max Gain: 191%
$39.50 Calls – Range: .81-2.25 – Max Gain: 178%
$40 Calls – Range: .50-1.90 – Max Gain: 280%
$40.50 Calls – Range: .30-1.47 – Max Gain: 390%
$41 Calls – Range: .15-1.16 – Max Gain: 673%

Shake Shack, Inc. SHAK – Weekly $35.50-37 Calls

$35.50 Calls – Range: .39-2.00 – Max Gain: 413%
$36 Calls – Range: .37-2.62 – Max Gain: 609%

$37 Calls – Range: .18-1.90 – Max Gain: 956%

______

Fresh Idea - Nvidia Corp. NVDA – Nvidia beat on earnings in a post-market release yesterday, and to correspond with the activity we’re observing here in the premarket, we want to highlight the NVDA Weekly $77-80 Calls* for potential daytrades.

*Our regular readers are well aware of the warnings we post every time we issue an alert, but for everyone just joining us, please be aware that trading options contracts with a weekly expiration on a Friday is a highly risky proposition, and should only be undertaken by expert traders!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EXMT Recap, Options & More

Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea

With Tesla posting a big earnings beat yesterday post-market, we’re going to want to signal a range of corresponding options calls to potentially capitalize on this untraded-upon development.

We’ve used the TSLA chain to leverage huge options opportunities in the past, and it would seem that conditions are setting up to give us another good chance at some sizable gains this week. We’re going to focus in on the TSLA Weekly $207.50-212.50 Calls for possible daytrade and/or intraweek swing trade possibilities.


Anything Technologies, Inc. EXMT – EXMT was the standout of the bunch from our morning report yesterday. It was an opportune time to revisit the stock, which we hadn’t mentioned in one of our newsletters since early 2014.

The stock traded in a solid range from .0012 to a high of .0026 for a move of 117% and did so on approximately nine times its monthly average volume. Such activity is more than enough to earn it a continued slot on our watchlist.
_____

IMD Companies, Inc. ICBU - This play that we signaled for observation a week ago today has also been recording solid performances this week, and is related to the aforementioned play in that it is captained by the same CEO.

The stock found its low on Monday at .0033, and has since made one heck of a rebound. Yesterday the stock hit a penny even, marking an intraweek pop of 203%
_____

Dominovas Energy Corp. DNRG – Also appearing in yesterday’s report was DNRG, a stock we’ve been actively tracking for well over a year now.

It had been a few months since we last touched upon this play, so the timing here was quite good as well. The stock made a good move from .0022-.0032 on the day, for gains of up to 45%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ERBB Recap, Options & More

American Green, Inc. ERBB

In lieu of a typical extended watchlist yesterday morning, we included a series of cannabis related plays. From that list came the familiar face of ERBB, which had itself a solid session which included a strong close.

On more than three times its monthly average volume, the stock traded in a range from .00289 to a high of .0045 (+56%) before closing just a couple of ticks below at .0043. That’s the highest PPS since June of 2015, yet another indication that a second green rush is currently in force.


Procter and Gamble Co. PG – Options Recap

We also wanted to give a quick rehash of the moves made by the options we signaled for observation in yesterday’s report, the PG Weekly $85.50-88 Calls.

We mentioned we’d be on the lookout for a gap-and-go to start the session, and that’s exactly what took place. Despite tapering off toward the end of the day, some nice gains were there for the taking in the morning.

$85.50 Calls – Range: 1.70-2.43 – Max Gain: 43%
$86 Calls – Range: 1.36-2.04 – Max Gain: 50%
$86.50 Calls
– Range: .97-1.53 – Max Gain: 58%
$87 Calls – Range: .66-1.25 – Max Gain: 89%
$87.50 Calls – Range: .41-.88 – Max Gain: 115%
$88 Calls – Range: .25-.61 – Max Gain: 144%


Lockheed Martin Corp. LMT – Options Idea

We’re going to formulate an options idea for major defense contractor Lockheed Martin today, which posted a healthy beat on earnings yesterday, causing a major spike on the chart that sent it up well past its 50DMA.

We’re going to be keen on the LMT 12/02 $255-260 Calls providing that the stock maintains support above this morning’s premarket high of 247.40 on any forthcoming pullbacks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates, Fresh Ideas

Best Buy Co. Inc. BBY – Options Update

We signaled a range of BBY options yesterday after noticing a hefty earnings beat that was driving the stock to gap up significantly in the premarket.

The bullish trend continued throughout the day, as BBY stock traded in a range from 37.66-39.36. That facilitated some big-time single-session gain opportunities for our specified targets, which were the BBY Weekly 36.50-39 Calls.

It wouldn’t have mattered which set of contracts in the highlighted range were selected, as every single one put up a standout performance, yielding the following potential gains:

$36.50 Calls – Range:  1.43-2.53 – Max Gain: 77%
$37 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.32 – Max Gain: 111%
$37.50 Calls – Range: .77-2.78 – Max Gain: 261%
$38 Calls – Range: .53-1.52 – Max Gain: 187%
$38.50 Calls – Range: .32-2.23 – Max Gain: 597%
$39 Calls – Range: .20-.80 – Max Gain: 300%

For us to remain interested in continuing to track these ideas, we’ll need to see BBY maintain support above the 37.50-mark on any pullbacks.


World Poker Fund Holdings, Inc. WPFH

We also tagged WPFH in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and while it didn’t produce a monster move like the aforementioned options plays, it did manage to make a notable increase on the day.

From a low of .53, the stock traded up to .70, marking an intraday move of 32% We’re going to want to continue to keep an eye on this play as it continues to make headway off of its recent bottom.


Dominovas Energy Corp. DNRG

Speaking of stocks where we’ve caught a bottom, we want to comment quickly on the progress of DNRG, a stock which has appeared in our reports on multiple occasions.

Our most recent mention of this play was earlier this month, following which time we observed a low of .0015. Yesterday the stock attained a new high of .0055, representing an increase of 267% in just a few weeks’ time.


Vista Outdoor, Inc. VSTO – Fresh Options Idea

VSTO is an interesting candidate for a forthcoming recovery, and we want to be waiting in the wings for that possibility. Despite a recent earnings miss a few weeks back, coupled with an analyst downgrade, the company’s long-term figures show a slow but steady growth in key areas.

The chart itself is egregiously oversold, with this most recent selloff lasting through the past ten sessions. Whenever we see a stock with solid fundamentals getting abused like this, our bottom-feeding alarms begin to sound.

We’re going to watch this play closely in the weeks ahead, along with a pair of extended-term contracts in its options chain, specifically, the VSTO 10/21 $35 and $40 Calls. A recovery of any significance should produce some interesting activity in those plays.
