Blue Horseshoe Srocks: More PBR Success

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR – Recap

After doing quite well with some PBR options to close out last week, we decided to update our idea to some weekly calls for this week yesterday morning, as we rolled up our strike range to the PBR Weekly $14.50-15.50 Calls.

With the head of steam that PBR has been building over the past several sessions, it came as no surprise to see our fresh ideas flourish as well. All three sets of contracts produced solid single session gains to start off the week:

$14.50 Calls – Range: .50-.91 – Max Gain: 82%
$15 Calls – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 148%
$15.50 Calls – Range: .11-.30 – Max Gain: 173%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

Lumentum Holdings Inc. LITE

We noted yesterday morning that LITE was bucking trend of the two-day market bloodbath we witnessed this week. We made it clear that we were interested in the LITE Weekly $44-46 Calls regardless of which way the markets went, and it turned out to be a solid idea.

The markets did of course see a reversal, and LITE did perform well on the day, creating the following gains in our tracked contracts:

$44 Calls – Range: 2.00-8.00 – Max Gain: 300%
$45 Calls – Range: 2.50-6.98 – Max Gain: 179%
$46 Calls – Range: 1.25-6.00 – Max Gain: 380%

Fresh Options Ideas:

The Walt Disney Co. DIS – Weekly $107-109 Calls
Snap, Inc. SNAP – Weekly $16-17.50 Calls


Quotient Ltd. QTNT

Another stock we went bullish on in yesterday morning’s report, despite coming off the biggest two-day losses for stocks in history, was QTNT.

It boasted a solid bottom setup, and had already exhibited some bottom-bounce activity in the prior session. It also performed well on the day, trading up from a low of 3.36 to a high of 4.39- a respectable intraday run of 31%  We’ll look for the stock to establish a trend of higher highs and higher lows over the next few sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ICLD Recap, Options & More

InterCloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

On Friday we noted that ICLD had rebounded off of its 52-week lows, and directed our readers to pay close attention over ensuing sessions, as the volume had really been ramping up significantly.

This was after tagging the play in our extended watchlist on Thursday We watched as the stock traded as low as .0157 that day and began to gain ground. Yesterday ICLD turned in another strong session to start the week, achieving a new high of .0245. That represents a three-session swing of 56% for this play since we’ve been closely tracking it.

We’ll continue to have ICLD on watch as it both breached through, and closed above its 50DMA yesterday, and its strength index is rising rapidly.


Dish Network Corp. DISH – Options Idea

Standard & Poors revealed late yesterday, that DISH would be added to the S&P500, and this morning, the stock is gapping up moderately in the premarket to the tune of 5%

We want to be standing at the ready with a solid options play, should the bullish activity carry over into today’s session, so we’re going to identify the DISH Weekly $63-65 Calls as targets for potential intraday/intraweek flip opportunities.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Form-4 Alert, AAPL & More

 Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options

We used to trade AAPL options like they were going out of style, but have not actually talked about the stock in roughly six months.

This morning, on the heels of yesterday’s post-market earnings beat which featured better-than-expected iPhone sales, we’re going to be coming back to AAPL with a short-term options idea.

Having traded as high as 127.67 in the premarket, we’re going to be looking for a dip-and-rip off of this gap-up once the session commences. We’re going to be focused on the AAPL Weekly $125-127 Calls provided the expected early dip doesn’t take the stock lower than the $125-mark.


Opko Health, Inc. OPK

OPK is a familiar stock to us, albeit one that we haven’t touched upon in awhile. Recently, it has been under heavy consolidation, beginning with a large gap-down from the mid-$11 to the $10 area in late December, and persisting throughout last month.

We’ve also noticed a series of Form-4 filings which show the CEO was soaking up shares at these lows all last week and into Monday, to the tune of more than $300K worth purchased at market prices in just a few days.

We like to follow plays where directors are actively supporting their stock with confidence buys like those, so we’re going to be keeping a closer eye on OPK in sessions to come, as a rebound may be forthcoming at any time.


Tuesday’s Honorable Mentions

Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. CEGX – We placed CEGX in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist and were pleased with the stock’s modest, yet noteworthy intraday performance.

The stock traded in a range from .0026 to .0038, marking an intraday pop of 46% There was a consolidation into the close, and the stock failed to hold at least 50% of its daily advance, however, with the volatility exhibited in the past couple of sessions, we’ll definitely want to keep an eye on CEGX as we cruise through mid-week.
_____

Players Network PNTV – We were just mentioning our coverage of PNTV on Monday, and the 400%+ gains we’d observed recently. What has followed is a solid couple of sessions that has the stock well on its way to an impressive intraweek performance.

Monday’s low came in at .028, and yesterday it reached as high as .04, marking a two-day swing of 30% We’ll be looking for the stock to continue posting higher highs and higher lows today, which would solidify PNTV’s multi-day runner status.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GIGL Explodes & More

Giggles N’ Hugs, Inc. GIGL

We were exceptionally pleased with the performance of GIGL after including it in Friday’s premarket report, and our timing really couldn’t have been any better. The stock had been trading sideways for months, without so much as a spike, yet it still broke out for a monstrous single-session move.

GIGL traded up from an early low of .0053, smashed through the penny barrier, and hurtled its way to an impressive high of .024. That worked out to an intraday push of 353% and it came on record volume.

For those reasons, we’ll certainly be ready to continue monitoring the activity in this play. We’ll of course allow for the possibility of some course correction, but the odds of seeing either a continued increase, or a dip-and-rip scenario, seem reasonably high at this point.


LIG Assets, Inc. LIGA

We also got a pretty good performance out of LIGA, which was another inclusion from Friday’s report. The move didn’t quite rise to the magnitude of the aforementioned stock, it did attain double-bagger status with a significant gain opportunity.

From a low of .001, we watched as LIGA shot to a high of .0022 inside of the first two hours of trading. That was good for quick gains of up to 120%    Perhaps just as importantly, the stock maintained more than half of its daily advance, so we’ll be keeping an eye peeled in sessions to come.


Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, Inc. MACK

We also want to draw attention to MACK this morning, a stock that we haven’t visited in quite some time. Following the establishment of a new 52-week (and indeed, a three year) low on Friday, a bombshell development hit wires this morning and is really causing a stir.

PPS has increased considerably in premarket trading as the company announced that it has sold a pancreatic cancer drug, among other assets, for a cool billion dollars. (>>View PR)

Whenever a major catalytic event such as this transpires, we always like to monitor the situation on the tail end. Hypothetically, a return to its pricing from around this time last year, from this point, would carry a gain of around 100%
