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.

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.

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: PIXY Review & More

ShiftPixy, Inc. PIXY

As we were mentioning on Monday morning, we included PIXY in Friday’s report on its first ever trading day. Generally speaking we don’t tend to cast our lot in with brand new IPO’s, but a trusted source in our network gave us a heads-up on PIXY, and didn’t let us down.

We of course passed it along to our readers immediately in our premarket report on Friday, and the stock, after two trading days has made some really nice progress.

From the initial opening price of 6.30 we observed in PIXY, it went on to hit a high of 9.70 to kick off the short trading week on Monday. That marks a two-day swing of 54% for this newly-trading juggernaut. We’ll continue to be on the lookout for PIXY to keep recording higher base levels of support.


Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. OPXA

An honorable mention from Monday’s report is OPXA, especially considering that sessions just prior to a holiday break are typically low-key affairs.

The stock put up a solid intraday performance, running 35% from a low of a dollar up to 1.35, and pulling back into the close at 1.15. However, premarket activity this morning has seen the stock trade back to just below Monday’s high. This is one we’ll want to keep on our radar for the time being.


Aphria, Inc. APHQF

We’ve been familiar with APHQF for quite a time, but today will be the first occasion we’ve actually mentioned it in our reports.

Today, we wanted to point out that the company released two PR’s yesterday, the more significant of which was the announcement of a 1-year cannabis supply deal with a licensed Canadian medical provider which will bring upwards of $5M in revenue beginning midway through next year. We’ll provide links to both PR’s so you can check them out for yourself.
