Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup

We had good fortune with our fresh options call yesterday, so today we’re going to be recapping the total possible gains on those plays, as well as unearthing a couple of fresh ideas to add to the mix as we close out this trading week.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Recap - Our inkling on DAL yesterday morning was to go bearish after a disappointing earnings call for the airline, with the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts. We were not disappointed with our decision to do so, as those DAL puts went on to log the following double and multi-bag intraday moves for us before lunch hour was over:

$55.50 Puts – Range: .76-1.60 – Max Gain: 110%
$55 Puts – Range: .48-1.05 – Max Gain: 119%
$54.50 Puts – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 160%
$54 Puts – Range: .13-.36 – Max Gain: 177%
$53.50 Calls – Range: .03-.17 – Max Gain: 466%

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD

Speaking of bearish options ideas, we want to enter another fresh set into the log this morning in AMD. This stock trades very cyclically, and from a technical perspective, looks as if it could continue to lose ground after a reversal this week. We’re going to place the AMD 07/21 $14-13 Puts on watch into next week in the event that our impression of this play is correct.
______

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. BJRI

Lastly on the options front, we are going to signal a range of extended-term calls on BJRI, which has a pretty attractive bottom setup on the chart at the moment. To take advantage of a potential sustained rebound, we’re going to be monitoring the BJRI 08/18 $35 & 40 Calls.
_____

Bonus Idea: NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls


Diana Containerships. Inc. DCIX

DCIX went into a full-on nose dive recently after it was announced that the company would be taking out roughly an $85M loan to settle a monster pile of debt, and the investment community did not take the news well.

The stock has subsequently fallen to new all-time lows, and that’s where we come in. We’re always looking for stocks like this to put on bottom-watch. Being egregiously oversold, DCIX may yet have a bit further to fall, but we’ll want to be ready for a reversal at any time. The resulting bounce-back could be considerable.

Dollar General Corp. DG – Recap

After a beat on sales and profits for the quarter and a chart primed for a bullish move, we highlighted the DG Weekly $75-78 Calls and we’re happy to report that each and every one of the contracts contained within that range recorded huge intraday moves for us.

Regardless which set of the seven was chosen, multi-bag gains were there for the taking:

$75 Calls – Range: .92-3.10 – Max Gain: 237%
$75.50 Calls – Range: .64-.2.22 – Max Gain: 247%
$76 Calls – Range: .40-2.05 – Max Gain: 412%
$76.50 Calls – Range: .24-1.20 – Max Gain: 400%
$77 Calls – Range: .12-1.21 – Max Gain: 908%
$77.50 Calls – Range: .06-.80 – Max Gain: 1233%
$78 Calls – Range: .05-.45 – Max Gain: 800%

Lululemon Athletica LULU – Fresh Ideas

Lululemon had an earnings beat of its own yesterday post-market, so we want to formulate some ideas for the LULU chain as well.

Not only is the stock gapping up on earnings, but like DG yesterday, the LULU chart was already looking like a bottom-play with premium potential. That’s why we want to formulate both a short and long term set of ideas for LULU options. The LULU Weekly $55-57.50 Calls*, to coincide with the immediate boost in activity off of these earnings, and the LULU 06/30 58.50-60.50 Calls in the event of a protracted recovery.

*We never highlight options with a weekly expiration on a Friday without an explicit warning. That should tell you how risky it can be. So if you’re not an expert trader, don’t even think about it!


Synergy Pharmaceuticals, Inc. SGYP

We also want to put SGYP on watch today after noticing that the stock is coming off of its 52-week lows. That’s always a chart setup that we’re going to look at, but in this case the lows followed shartly after the company producing positive Phase III data on its TRULANCE™ drug, which is already approved by the FDA.

We’ve included a chart snapshot here, and you can plainly see, the stock had been beaten back severely and is only just now beginning to mount a rebound.

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: Week Kicks Off on High Note


Yesterday, despite the fact that the markets as a whole were on pace for the longest sustained backslide in more than half a decade, we still managed to see new highs in a few of the stocks we’ve been tracking.  We also observed solid intraday performances from a couple other plays that were on our morning watchlist, so we’ll begin today with a quick roundup of all these movers.

Dolat Ventures, Inc. DOLV

We signaled our interest in tracking DOLV in Thursday’s report, and at the time we’d witness the stock trading at a low of .0056.

Yesterday concluded with a new high, and the recording of three straight bullish sessions since then, with DOLV trading in an intraday range from .0125 to .019, for a gain of 52% It brings the updated figure on the three session swing we’ve seen so far to an impressive 239%


MyDx, Inc. MYDX

We circled back to MYDX, a stock we’ve tracked all the way from a February low of .001, last Wednesday, while it was trading as low as .0077. It too has put together a multi-day run leading to impressive new highs once again yesterday.

The stock saw a daily range of .017-.0226, which represents an increase of 32% on the day, 193% from last Wednesday’s low, and a ridiculous 2160% from our witnessed low in February!


U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM

Here’s another stock whose low (.014) came during the month of February, following our report on the 27th. We’ve been all over it since then , and in two sustained bursts it has absolutely soared.

After reminding our readers of that fact in yesterday’s premarket report, USRM managed to hit yet another new high for us. It traded from .07-.112 for a daily boost of 60% and the new high recorded pushed our overall observed gain on this play in just one months time to an even 700%


Honorable Mentions

We placed a couple of plays in yesterday’s extended watchlist that didn’t blow our minds by any stretch of the imagination, but did log some solid intraday increases that warrant continued observation for each of them.

Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPRX
Daily Range: 1.63-2.07 – Max Gain: 27%

Impax Laboratories, Inc. IPXL
Daily Range: 10.50-13.00 – Max Gain: 24%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Hottest Movers & More

Good Morning Traders! We’re eager to start off a fresh week by taking a look at the stocks we talked about in Friday’s premarket report. All four of them put up solid intraday performances which led to the recording of new highs across the board:
-
  HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. HTGM

Our initial flagging of HTGM  in Thursday’s premarket report and afforded us the chance to see shares changing hands as low as 2.85. We observed a great run that day, and reminded our readers that we’d be keeping it on our radar on Friday. It’s a good thing that we did, because the real party had only just gotten started.

Friday’s session brought a next-level run from 5.97 to a high of 13.25. That works out to an intraday rip of 122% and a total two-day upswing of 365% over our observed low from Thursday. It went so crazy on Friday that it had to be briefly halted twice, and the stock is showing some interesting premarket activity today, so be sure to keep an eye on HTGM. Volatility like this is a swing-traders’ dream.


Dolat Ventures, Inc. DOLV
This was another stock we highlighted in Thursday’s report, and after seeing an intraday spike of 74% that day (.0056-.00975), it would also end up primed for an even more impressive run on Friday.

DOLV traded in a range from .0065 to a new high of .0128, marking a shot at up to 97% in single-session gains, and extending our observed two-day range to a respectable 129%

-

MyDx, Inc. MYDX
We’ve been tracking MYDX heavily throughout 2017, as we were just mentioning on Friday,

We had come back to it Wednesday, when the stock was trading as low as .0077, and on Friday it hit a new high of .0194. That marked a three-day swing of 152% and extended our witnessed range from a low of .001 in mid-February to a whopping 184%

-

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM
Last but not least among our topics of discussion from Friday is USRM, which we’ve tracked from a low of .014 (February 27th).Just like the three aforementioned plays, we watched as the stock soared to new highs during Friday’s session. It traded from a low of .062 up to .0915, for a daily upswing of 48% and an updated figure on our total observed run of 553%
-
ProText Mobility, Inc. TXTM
-
We noticed an increase in volume and price activity in TXTM on Friday, and the company has announced a new acquisition that will have it appearing in news feeds today (>>View PR).

We know the stock has the ability to take off quickly, as evidenced by its rapid run from the triple-zero range to .0056 at the end of January which we covered extensively in our daily traders chats*. That’s another reason why we want to reserve a slot on our watchscreens for TXTM today.
