Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PVTL Bottom Play & More

Pivotal Software Inc. PVTL

We’ve been quietly tracking this play for quite some time, and feel it’s just about ready to make a move. As you can see on the included chart, PVTL has sold off after recent earnings, and the stock has found support at a solid double-bottom in the $19-range.

You can also see that PVTL is approaching heavily oversold territory, and the MACD is converging sharply toward a bullish cross, not to mention a sizable gap to the upside. We’re going to want to have a range of options contracts on watch in the days and weeks ahead in the event that the rebound occurs which looks just about due at the present time.

Our targets will be the PVTL 10/19 $19-22 Calls.


Blackberry Ltd. BB

We also want to designate a pair of options contracts for the Blackberry chain this morning on the heels of the company’s Q2 profit beat.

We’ll be looking for a dip-and-rip scenario, which, if it occurs, should produce some significant gain opportunities in the BB Weekly $10 & $10.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HEAR Review & More

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR – Review

Our primary focus has always been to find near-term trading opportunities first, assigning longer-term calls a secondary priority. However, we’ve had quite a bit of good fortune this year in identifying stocks that have gone on to have considerable extended runs.

HEAR is one such stock, that we first signaled for observation on April 9th, at which time the stock was trading for as little as 2.76. Over the ensuing nine weeks, we have seen an incredible, near-continuous bull run that has resulted in new highs of 23.20 yesterday. That works out to an increase of 740% over a span of a little over two months!

Being in blue skies, there’s no telling what new highs we might see in HEAR; it’s certainly plausible to believe we may see our total observed gain reach a thousand percent at some point in the near future. At the rate things have been going, it’s certainly not an unreasonable thought.


H&R Block, Inc. HRB – Fresh Idea

We also want to provide a quick update on our bearish options idea from yesterday’s premarket report, the HRB Weekly $26-24 Puts. We formulated this range after noticing the stock getting kicked hard despite posting an earnings beat in the post-market on Tuesday.

HRB did gap down a little too far for the $26′s to see much action, but we had respectable chances to profit off of the other two contracts in the range. The $25 Puts ran from .65-1.05 for a gain of 62%, while the $24′s put up a double-bag performance with a 133% rip from .15-.35.


Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We tagged GALT on Tuesday morning after noticing a big surge in activity, and its run has continued nicely over the course of the week.

We’ve now observed a solid 37% bullish move from 5.83-8.00, and will be on the lookout for the possibility of more new highs.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ENPH Review & More

Aytu BioScience, Inc. AYTU

We’ve done our best this week in reminding readers that our interest in AYTU was not a drill. Beginning from our initial alert in last Wednesday’s premarket report, the stock was exhibiting all the signs of a recovery play.

Yesterday we reiterated our interest for the second time this week, mentioning how the stock had already come a considerable distance from our observed  low of .4118, and that it had picked up momentum on Monday, and that more gains could be in store.

We were right on the money as the stock extended its recent gains yesterday running to a new high of .76, which represents a five day swing of 85%


Enphase Energy, Inc. ENPH

Recently, we have had quite a few plays we’ve signaled within the past couple of months, exhibit really convincing, sustained uptrends, and ENPH is another one to put in that category.

While our most recent mention of the stock came on March 19th, in the midst of the current run as a reminder, our initial call came on February 28th.  On that day, the stock saw a low of 3.07 and hasn’t looked back since.

Yesterday, ENPH surged to a new high of 5.58, marking a respectable one month run of 82% during which time volume has also been greatly increased.



Fresh Options Ideas –
Both of the following are looking good today with untraded-upon earnings beats, so we’ve got a pair of fresh ideas to share this morning:

Lululemon Athletica Inc. LULU Weekly $83-85 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ENPH Review & More

Enphase Energy, Inc. ENPH – Review

We have been exceedingly pleased with the recent performance of ENPH, which, despite recent volatility in the markets at large, has been on an incredible bull run for several weeks. We alerted our readers to ENPH’s momentum on the last day of February, and in the two trading weeks since then, the stock has barely skipped a beat.

From a low of 3.07 on the morning of our initial alert, we’ve seen ENPH steadily rise, leading to a new high of 4.74 on Friday. That works out to a very solid run of 54% In the last week especially , the stock showed little sign of slowing down, so we’ll be interested to see where its fortunes take it this week.


Walmart, Inc. WMT – Options Review

We’ve been tracking a wide range of extended-term WMT Calls since the middle of last week, the WMT 04/20 $95-97.50 Calls. We wanted to provide a quick update on the moves we had witnessed by the end of the week.

At the bottom of the range, the $95 Calls ran from .25 to .51 for a gain of 104%  At the top, we saw the $97.50′s rise from .11 to .24, a 118% rip. The four sets of contracts in between those two also produced opportunities at commensurate profits. With plenty of time prior to expiration, we’ll leave these contracts on our radar and continue to monitor them as we kick off a fresh trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Ideas & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

As you are probably aware the SPY (the markets as a whole) had been on a historic run starting in early 2016 which persisted through January of this year, when we experienced some of the biggest selloffs in market history. The SPY began to rebound earlier this month, and was making a pretty good run at a recovery until yesterday brought another significant backslide.

Despite yesterday’s hiccup, the SPY has been in a general uptrend for the last couple of weeks, and today, it looks like we could resume the path toward ascension. We’ll be ;looking for the markets to go green today, which could produce some notable opportunities in the SPY 02/28 $275-276 Calls*.

*Please note that these contracts expire today, thus the associated risk is that of trading weekly options on a Friday. It should never be attempted unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.


The TJX Companies, inc. TJX

TJX is exhibiting a considerable surge in premarket trading today. Despite missing EPS estimates in their Q4 earnings call, the stock is gapping up to the tune of 8% this morning.

When we see a monster gapper like this, we generally look to signal a range of options calls that will come into play in a dip-and-rip scenario, which are quite common in instances such as these. We will be tracking the TJX 03/16 $80-85 Calls.
