Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CVS Options & More

CVS Health Corp CVS

First up this morning, we’re taking a look at CVS, which is currently boasting an interesting chart setup along with a recent analyst upgrade.

The stock recently ran to an area of previous resistance near $84, and is currently down in the premarket along with the markets in general, but we’re going to be looking for a recovery.

As you can see on the annotated chart below, there appears to be an impending Golden Cross, with the 50DMA rising toward the 200DMA, and with the company’s quarterly earnings call slated for February 8th, we’re going to signal some options that could see some nice activity.

We’re going to radar the CVS 02/09 $77-80 Calls which will expire at the end of next week, and could explode with a favorable quarterly report.

Ballard Power Systems, Inc. BLDP – Update

We couldn’t have timed yesterday morning’s call of BLDP any better, outlining the reasons we thought the stock was ripe for a reversal. Among other things, it had strung together ten consecutive sessions of decreases or sideways trading, and yesterday brought the beginning of the rebound that we suspected was due.

From an early low of 3.39, BLDP made a modest, yet convincing move of 19% to a high of 4.04, before closing very near to the high of day at 4.02. It’s a good start, and we’ll want to see the stock continue to record higher highs and higher lows, and show some signs of sustaining its momentum.

Adding to the possibility of a continued uptrend is a PR regarding the company’s Protonex subsidiary this morning outlining a government purchase order of $1.6M for its power management systems for special operations military equipment.(>>View PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TTOO Recap & More

T2 Biosystems, Inc. TTOO – Recap

We tagged TTOO as a bottom play just under a month ago in our report dated July 18th, as the stock was undergoing a lengthy period of consolidation. It subsequently found support at 2.53 shortly thereafter, and since that point in time, it has seen a solid recovery off of those lows.

Yesterday, TTOO reached a new high of 4.07, its best PPS all summer long. It worked out to a very respectable 61% upswing over our observed low, and indicators on the chart suggest there is still room for more rapid short term growth, so we’ll continue to keep an eye on this play moving forward.

 SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) – Options Update

The markets ended up rebounding yesterday, leading us to note our interest in tracking the SPY Weekly $244.50-246 Calls in the event that the premarket trend we were noticing continued into the session. That’s what happened, and as a result our highlighted contracts made some really nice intraday moves.

$244.50 Calls – Range: 1.54-2.53 – Max Gain: 1180%
$245 Calls – Range: 1.18-2.05  – Max Gain: 1280%
$245.50 Calls – Range: .83-1.68 – Max Gain: 1225%
$246 Calls – Range: .54-1.30 – Max Gain: 1864%

The possibility of a sustained rally for the markets will lead us to roll up our potential strike prices in the SPY chain up to the $247 and $247.50 Calls to potentially keep this idea rolling.

Zerez Holdings Corp. ZRZH

We first caught wind of ZRZH last year, and it was good to us back then. We want to revisit the stock once again today for a couple reasons.

Not only is ZRZH in a relatively good place on the chart from which to launch a possible rebound, but yesterday the company presented some impressive quarter-over-quarter revenue growth. For those reasons, we want to place this stock on watch this week, a rebound to its previous area of fierce resistance at a nickel would mean considerable gain opportunities from present pricing.

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Zerez Holdings Corporation, (OTC PINK: ZRZH), DBA Smart Cannabis, today filed its second quarter 2017 quarterly reports with OTCMARKETS. The company reported $2,041,557 in gross revenue, about a 275% increase over first quarter revenues of $544,467 (>>View Full PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CNXS Recap & More

Connexus Corp. CNXS

After initially tagging CNXS on Thursday May 25th amid a major spike of bitcoin hysteria, we witnessed a low of .0007 in the stock, and in the six sessions that have followed it has been building up quite a head of steam.

From that initial observed low, CNXS has gone on to hit a high of .003. which represents a very nice move of 329% while volume over this recent period has been heightened considerably.

We’ve been noticing a few other newsletters finally catching on, but to our knowledge we were the first to the party on CNXS. We’ll continue to monitor its progress moving forward, and will remain interested provided it holds support at or above a previous area of resistance at .0018 on any pullbacks.

FitBit, Inc. FIT – Options Idea

After sitting on the sidelines for many months on FIT, and watching the stock get crushed, we’ve seen it beginning to come up off of its recently established 52-week lows and are beginning to see it as a potential value play.

If our inkling is correct, a play of FIT stock itself would likely work out rather well over the longer term, but as our readers are aware, we like to try to score big with options plays when an opportunity presents itself.

In this case, we’d like to signal a range of extended-term contracts with an August expiration, namely, the FIT 08/18 $5-7 Calls. This will give us plenty of time for FIT to restablish itself and hopefully mount the recovery that appears possible given the current look of the chart.

Celsion Corp. CLSN

Speaking of bottom plays, we’re noticing that CLSN has recently registered a new annual low on Wednesday, and has been attempting to gain some traction and come up off of that bottom.

With the stock very close to extreme oversold territory, we’ll want to place it on watch as a possible rebound play.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GEVO News, PTBI Review & More

PlasmaTech Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. PTBI

In Tuesday morning’s premarket report, we expressed our interest in PTBI based on some press, and the look of the chart. We expected to see a chance for a nice gain, but what followed has been much more impressive.

PTBI has become a multi-day runner; Tuesday’s session brought a move from 4.33-7.77, an intraday gain of 79%

Yesterday, the company came out with news of a new acquisition in the morning, and that certainly added fuel to the fire. After a gap-up we witnessed an early run from 8.71-11.15 (+28%). That high represented a two-day increase of 157% over our observed low of 4.33, and was followed by some consolidation in the afternoon leading to a close at 8.60.

The company published another press release post-market divulging details of a forthcoming private placement (Link Below), that is untraded-upon. Thus, PTBI is gapping up once again today, so we will be wary of the possibility for more price action similar to what we’ve seen so far.

Extreme Networks, Inc. EXTR

We’re going to put EXTR on our radars this week as a stock that was sent through the ringer after an analyst downgrade early last month, causing a big gap-down on the chart.

You can see it plainly on the snapshot we’ve included below. In addition, we can identify a couple of bullish indicators staring us in the face; the RSI is coming off of being oversold, while the MACD is upturned and showing divergence. The stock has been making higher highs and higher lows for two sessions running, and we’ll look for that to continue.

Gevo, Inc. GEVO

We also want to pay attention to GEVO after an interesting PR this morning that highlights an agreement with Alaska Airlines has sent the stock cruising to three-month highs in the premarket.

The chance for a dip-and-rip style play could present itself on the rebound after the profit-takers come out of the woodwork early in today’s session. For us to remain interested in GEVO, the stock will need to maintain support at or above its 50DMA of 3.23 on any pullback.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PBR & GEIG Updates, Extended Watchlist

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR - Options

To start off a new trading week, we’re going to follow up on Friday’s mention of PBR Calls, which ended up with a fantastic performance by all accounts. If you recall, in Friday Morning’s Report, we indicated that we were “interested in the potential of the $16.50 and $17.00 Weekly Calls” for intraday flip opportunities.

As you can see on the Level 2 Snapshot below, the $16.50 Calls traded in a range from .25-.63, an intraday move 152% The $17 Calls did considerably better, screaming up from a low of .04 and running as high as .23; good for enormous gains of up to 475%

To begin the week, we’ll remain interested in the $16.50 and $17 Weekly Calls, provided PBR can hold support at Friday’s swing low of 16.66

GEI Global Energy Corp. GEIG

In our most recent GEIG alert (Wednesday), we stated that we needed to “keep a sharp eye out for a bottom… as it gets itself in gear for the next leg-up.”

The stock was searching for a base of support from which to launch its next upswing, and found it at .007 shortly prior to the close on Thursday. Friday’s session would prove most advantageous, as the stock sailed back upward to as high as .02, marking a 185% spike off of that bottom.

That was the second golden opportunity presented to us by GEIG in as many weeks; remember, we called it the week before last as well, and were rewarded with a single-session move of over 700% with traders easily being able to play the stock for gains in the 400% range. The high on that run was .08, so its quite possible to see GEIG make further strides from current levels.

Side Note:

We’re still monitoring FB Calls as we pointed out at the beginning of last week. We’ll be looking to capitalize on the volatility that comes with rising anticipation of earnings, due for release on Wednesday. It won’t be the first time we’ve used this tactic, and it isn’t likely to be the last.

In the midst of earnings season, we’re focused on using the trends to our advantage in making some potentially big options trades, not just with FB, but many others as well.
