Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Reviewing Recent Winners

STOCK RECAPS

Much of our focus gets devoted to options ideas these days, as they represent the greatest chance for large short term gains for traders. However, we still scan every day for stocks, and we wanted to begin this new trading week by highlighting a few of our recent picks that have met or exceeded our expectations.

Bio-Path Holdings, Inc. BPTH – Beginning with the least recent, roughly five weeks ago on January 23rd, BPTH was a stock we tagged as a bottom-watch play. The stock essentially traded sideways for the next month, only making nominal gains. That is until the latter half of last week, when it began to heat up on Thursday, and subsequently explode on Friday, performing beautifully on the day. The stock logged the number one gain on the entire NASDAQ, as it traded up from a low of 2.65 before reaching a high of 8.84.

That works out to a mind-melting 234% single-session rise on massive volume, which is extremely uncommon for big board plays. Cheers to anyone who caught a ride on this shooting star!
_____

Lexicon Pharma, Inc. LXRX – Appearing in Friday morning’s report was LXRX, which certainly didn’t see the level of activity as the previously mentioned play, but still posted positive figures on the day. From a low of 5.55, the stock rose as high as 7.07, marking a comparatively small but respectable intraday increase of 27%
_____

China Internet Nationwide Financial Services, Inc. CIFS – Also included in Friday’s report was CIFS, which also had a reasonably strong session following our alert. The low came in at 2.30 before the stock surged into the close at its high of day of 3.25. That represents a solid intraday gain of 41% We’ll also want to see if the stock can carry some of that momentum at the close, over to this fresh trading week.


Funko, Inc. FNKO – Options Review

We also signaled our interest in the FNKO 03/15 $22.50 & 25 Calls on Friday, and we got solid performances out of those contracts. The $22.50 Calls ran from .28-.70 for a gain of 150%
while the $25 also recorded a 150% pop from .10-.25.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Closing Out a Strong Week

Kandi Technologies Group Inc. KNDI – Recap

On Wednesday morning, we were looking at a pair of contracts in the KNDI options chain. We did see multi-bag gains out of those as mentioned in yesterday’s morning report, but perhaps just as big of a story is the move that KNDI stock itself managed in the two sessions since that alert.

From a low of 7.16 Wednesday morning, to yesterday’s high of 9.21, KNDI has managed to rattle off a 29% session-over-session increase. That’s a heck of a two-day swing for a $7+ stock, and will keep our interest as we close out the week.

This move was catalyzed by the US approval of two of the Chinese company’s electric vehicles.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the domestic go-ahead to KNDI’s Model EX3 and Model K22 electric cars.


Dominos Pizza, Inc. DPZ – Recap

We went bearish with some Dominos Puts yesterday, following a particularly bad quarterly release by the company in yesterday’s premarket earnings dump. Earning and revs were big misses, with same store sales making only a marginal jump.

We signaled our interest in tracking the DPZ Weekly $270-260 Puts and both of those sets of contracts recorded solid intraday moves to the upside, of which traders could have taken advantage. The $270 Puts ran from 12.02 to 20.50, marking a 71% rip, while the $260 surged even more, trading in a range from 4.99-12.84 for an intraday gain of 177%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Hot Options Calls

Roku, Inc. ROKU

We signaled a range of ROKU calls yesterday morning after having tracked the stock itself to some nice gains in recent weeks. Despite a late pullback, ROKU produced an intraday run sufficient to propel four out of our five sets of highlighted contracts to some really nice single session moves.

With the exception of the 45.50′s which were too far out of the money, all of the targets yielded multi-bag gain opportunities on the day.

$43.50 Calls – Range: .34-.88 – Max Gain: 159%
$44 Calls – Range: .20-.70 – Max Gain: 250%
$44.50 Calls – Range: .23-.50 – Max Gain: 117%
$45 Calls – Range: .16-.48 – Max Gain: 200%

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR – Update

Just a quick update on the PBR Weekly $14.50-15.50 Calls that we signaled and rode to some nice gains earlier this week. We wanted to remind readers that those are still in play, and with PBR gapping up in the premarket once again, we’d expect to see new highs on our tracked contracts which have already produced multi-bag upswings this week.


Constellation Brands Inc. STZ

We are quite familiar with Constellation, with the beverage giant being headquartered in the same city as our home offices. STZ was building some decent momentum off of recent lows, until this morning’s earnings release, where some lackluster figures and guidance for 2019 are getting the stock crushed in the premarket. It’s testing new annual lows, which has us sniffing for a bargain.

We are taking a longer view on this company and signal a couple of sets of extended-term calls for what we expect to be a rebound from current conditions in the weeks and months ahead. We’re going to place the STZ 02/01 $150-157.50 Calls and the 04/18 $160-170 Calls on watch.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Puts & More

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Options Idea

We came up really big with some SPY options ideas just prior to the New Year break, and will look to continue that pattern today. The markets look to be gearing toward another slumping session, so we’re inclined to signal a range of of bearish ideas to correspond with the fund’s current activity.

We’re going to select the SPY 01/02 $248-245 Puts* for observation today, with the possibility of some considerable gain opportunities that would come our way with a bearish correction to last week’s bullish push.

Please note that these expire at the end of the day, and should thus be treated as Weekly options on a Friday. As we always mention in these instances: *Please do not attempt to trade options on the day they expire unless you’re a seasoned veteran trader with money to burn. While the potential rewards are great from this type of trading, the risk is equally grave.


Western Asset Mortgage Capital Corp.  WMC

We want to put WMC on watch as a Form-4 bottom play, after noticing that the CFO picked up a multi-million dollar block of shares toward the end of last week, just as the stock has been coming down to new 52-week lows.

We will put it on our radar and be looking for it to establish itself as a recovery play as we kick off this new trading year.
