Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Options Wins

Options Reviews

General Mills, Inc. GIS – We were looking at the General Mills chain beginning
on Wednesday morning, when we designated the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls as targets of interest for the week. We got some very nice profit opportunities out of that set, with plenty of time for the possibility to realize further gains.  The $47.50 Calls rose from a low of 1.40-3.55, an upswing of 154% The $50′s traded in a range from .27-1.47, which works out to a huge jump of 444%

Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI  – On Thursday morning, we added the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls to our pool of ideas, and those really made a splash as well. In the two session span following our alert, we witnessed a move up from a low of 1.15 to a high of 4.30. That represents a rapid increase of 274%
_____

Revlon, Inc. REV - Finally, on Friday, we continued our streak of new ideas with an extended-term idea on Revlon. A pair of big insider buys was what led us to place these on watch. We’ll continue to track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls. For Friday, they each managed modest increases, with the $22.50′s running from 2.55-2.90 (+14%) and the $25′s going from 1.25-2.00 (+60%). These will be on our radar for quite some time, but got off to a nice start.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: REV Form-4 Alert

General Mills, Inc. GIS

Tracking back to an idea we formulated on Wednesday morning, the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls, we saw some really nice activity in those contracts thanks to a bullish session for the markets on the whole.

Both of our designated targets managed to post multi-bag gains. The $47.50 Calls made a nice swing from 1.40-2.85, representing a gain of 104% The $50′s fared even better, trading in a range from .27-.94, an increase of 248%


Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI

For a fresh idea yesterday, we went with the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls and saw a solid performance there as well. This set of contracts turned up with an even double-bagger as they ran from a low of 1.15, and reached a 3.30 high.

As is the case with many of the plays we selected this week, there’s still plenty of time remaining until expiration, so the possibility of seeing further useful activity down the line is not out of the question.


Revlon, Inc. REV – Form-4 Alert

Speaking of plenty of time, we are going to go farther out with this next fresh idea than we are typically accustomed to going. This idea could theoretically be in play for the next 5 months. We’ll track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls.

This is after noticing the stock recovering from a recent severe beating, in unison with Form-4 filings indicating the purchase of over $7M in stock by a REV insider on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, as the stock was flagging heavily.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NTNX Update & More

Nutanix, Inc. NTNX

We began highlighting NTNX just a week ago in our report from the morning of March 12th. On that day the stock saw a low of 35.20, as we signaled the NTNX 05/19 $40-42.50 Calls for longer-term observation.

We wanted to provide an update on both the stock and our options targets this morning, as NTNX has produced a very solid and steady uptrend since the morning of our initial alert. Yesterday, NTNX ran to a new high of 42.21. That marked a 1-week increase of 20% and it allowed for some nice moves in our highlighted contracts.

The $40 Calls have thus far traded in a range from 1.96 to 4.20 for a gain of 114% while the $42.50′s ran from 1.21-2.85, an increase of 136% NTNX is only halfway to filling the topside gap on itas chart, and there’s plenty of time remaining until expiration. We’ll be interested to see if the stock can pile on even more gains.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DRI Recap & More

General Mills, Inc. GS

First up today, we are taking a look at General Mills following the company’s solid quarterly figures on earnings and profits released here in the premarket.

The stock itself has gotten badly beaten up recently, as have most stocks in what is shaping up to be a very turbulent finish to 2018. However, the strong numbers reported could be just the catalyst to effect a convincing reversal. We’re going to be waiting in the wings with our eye on the GIS Weekly $37.50 Calls to try to take advantage of the situation.


Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI

We highlighted some calls in the DRI chain yesterday, the DRI Weekly $95-105 Calls. Of those three sets of contracts, we got some very nice activity from two out of the three. While the $95′s were too far in the money, the $100′s and the $105′s fared quite well.

The $100 Calls traded up from a low of 2.85 and hit an even 5.00 for a gain of 75% and the  $105′s surged from .65-1.60, producing a gain opportunity of up to 146%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates, Options Ideas

Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. SGSI

We wanted to circle back around to mention SGSI this morning, and pass along some media from the company that does not appear in its official news feed.

The president of Spectrum Global gave an interview on the company, and we would highly suggest that our readers take the time to check that video out. Additionally, for anyone who may have missed our initial special report on SGSI, it would be a good idea to give that a look as well.

Spectrum had a really solid year of growth in 2018 and we are very excited about the company’s prospects for the coming New Year.

Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

We also want to place RIOT on recovery watch this morning. The stock, along with the price of Bitcoin, has been beaten up for quite some time now, but may be seeing some stabilization, especially with investor confidence in traditional securities being at perhaps the lowest point in the whole of 2018.

RIOT saw the beginnings of a bottom-bounce yesterday, and we’re going to want to monitor it into year’s end for the potential of a more sustained rebound.


Fresh Options Ideas:
DRI Weekly $95-105 Calls
ORCL Weekly $47-48 Calls

JNJ Weekly $130-133 Calls
(In addition to continuing to monitor the 01/25 $135-140 Calls we signaled yesterday)
