Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Watch Plays & More

Ford Motor Co. F
Ford is the first of a couple of bottom-watch plays we want to signal for observation as we kick off a fresh trading week. The month of January was rough for the Detroit automaker, bringing a precipitous fall into heavily oversold territory.

We are just now, in February, beginning to see the signs of a recovery. As you can see on the snapshot of the chart below, the stock has just started to come off of being oversold and bounce off of its lowest PPS since August. The MACD also appears to be converging for an upcoming cross, and there’s a gap to the upside as well.

We’ll look to take advantage of this setup by tracking the F 03/02 10.37-11.37 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.


BioMarin Pharmaceutical, Inc. BMRN

Another potential bottom play we want to look at this morning is BMRN, which also recently has been beaten down to what we feel are unsustainable low levels. We’re getting a heavy multiple-bottom signal as the strength index is tumbling toward extremely oversold territory.

The look of the MACD suggests some further decrease or sideways trading could occur, which is why we’ll want to look at a set of extended term options contracts, the BMRN 03/16 $80 & 85 Calls. With over a month until expiration, that should give us ample time for the stock to realize the recovery it appears to be building toward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Plays

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options Idea

On the heels of the company’s solid quarterly report including adding over eight million new subscribers, we selected the NFLX Weekly $247.50-255 Calls as as our options trading targets, even as the stock had already pressed to a new all-time high, and there were high premiums baked into the options prices.

Our bullish hunch turned out to be absolutely correct, with the stock surging out of the gate and ultimately reaching a high of 257.71. A secondary move was there

That move facilitated some very nice intraday opportunities in our designated contracts:

$247.50 Calls – Range: 4.87-8.02 – Max Gain: 65%
$250 Calls – Range: 3.66-6.40 – Max Gain: 76%
$252.50 Calls – Range: 2.68-5.03 – Max Gain: 88%
$255 Calls - Range: 1.90-3.80 – Max Gain: 100%


Fresh Options Ideas

Continuing along the theme of using big name earnings beats as leverage to make quick-strike options trades, we’ve got a a fresh pair this morning. Ford and GE are both coming off of being oversold, compounding the chance for solid runs off of their bottoms.

We’re going to radar some contracts in each chain to try to take advantage of the situation:

Ford Motor Co. F – Feb 2nd $12 & 12.50 Calls

General Electric Co. GE – Weekly $17-18 Calls

DSW Inc. DSW

In terms of things we routinely look for in stocks that we set our sights upon, DSW seems to currently have a lot to offer. It’s a stock that has just registered a new annual low, while rapidly approaching heavily oversold territory according to indicators on the chart.

The company also happens to have released its quarterly earnings this morning, the results of which exceeded expectations as DSW recorded its first same-store sales increases since 2015.

With all these things going for it, it seems only logical for us to formulate an options idea to put on our radars and monitor over the next few weeks. We’re going to have our eye on the DSW 09/15 $17.50 & $20 Calls.


Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. ZN

We’ve spotted a nice chart setup on ZN as well on our routine morning scan today. We’ve pointed that out on the chart below.

The stock had a really nice run back in June that carried it from the 1.40 area up to $7, and after consolidating off of those highs during the past several weeks, it seems to have found support and begun its next up-cycle.

Hypothetically, a return to the highs it saw earlier in the summer, would mean more than a double-bagger from current pricing.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Ideas

Jammin Java Corp. JAMN

We’d like to radar a familiar old play that we haven’t taken a close look at in nearly a year. JAMN, over the course of the past couple of months, has tumbled its way back to bargain-basement prices.

Now a subpenny play attempting to get a leg up over newly-registered 52-week lows, we’re going to be observing the stock for a potential recovery in sessions to come, as regaining just a fraction of the ground it’s lost recently could spell multi-bag upswings from current PPS levels.


Fresh Options Ideas

We’ve got a couple of new ideas on the options trading front this morning, and based on positioning on their charts, both of the following stocks may also be ripening for possible swing-trade opportunities.

Ford Motor Co. F – In addition to a slight ascending wedge pattern, F has a sizable gap to the upside not far off of the current pricing. Additionally, short interest on the stock has decreased by a large margin, setting us up to track some potential options ideas to correspond with what we think should be some upward momentum in coming sessions.

Along with F stock itself, we’re going to be tracking the F 10/14 $12-13 Calls for possible swing trades.
__________

Freeport-McMoRan, Inc. FCX – We’re interested in this copper play for a couple reasons this morning. A huge asset sale valued at roughly $2B hitting the newswires (>>Read More) is what has drawn our attention to FCX, in conjunction with a bottom bounce signal off of 5-month support levels on the chart.

We’ll be on the lookout for chances in the FCX 10/14 $11-12 Calls. Like the previously mentioned play, time won’t be as much of a factor here, with just over a month until these contracts are set to expire.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AGTK Recap, Options & More

Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK

The standout runner from yesterday morning’s premarket report ended up being AGTK. We noticed it had been ramping up in PPS over the preceding two sessions, and figured it was worth tracking. We were right on in our assumption, as the stock traded in a respectable daily range, running into the close with strength.

AGTK saw an early low of .00168 before running to a high of .0025, representing a single-session spike of 49% The move came on stronger-than-average volume, and marked the third straight session of higher highs and higher lows.

We’ll remain interested in tracking the activity in AGTK provided it can hold support at or above .002; next key areas of resistance are at the 50 and 200DMA’s at .0029 and .0031, respectively.


Options Ideas:

We’ve got a pair of options chains to watch as well, for the following ideas:

Ford Motor Co. F – Our idea concerning Ford is based more off of technical factors of the current chart. As you can see, there are a number of indicators pointing to the possibility of a forthcoming recovery. We want to select a set of contracts with an extended expiration to give our idea time to manifest; the F 09/16 $12.75 Calls. The stock is searching for a bottom, and we’ll need to wait until just the right moment when it begins to rebound and possibly make a run at filling the gap.


______

Time Warner, Inc. TWX – The other plays we’re going to be keeping an eye on are short term, weekly expiration ideas: TWX Weekly $77-79 Calls.


Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. OMEX

Lastly, we want to put another new play on watch, based purely off of the look of the chart. As you can see, OMEX is in the process of filling a major gap on its chart from this spring, and it just bulled through its 200DMA yesterday. The RSI has also cracked into the power zone, so we’ll definitely be observing the near-term activity on this play.
