Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Win Friday

Recapping Friday’s Winners

If you check our report from Friday morning, you’ll see that we highlighted a couple of sets of weekly options ideas, and we’d like to kick off this short trading week with a review of the total possible gains which were available for anyone who caught our alerts.

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) -Expecting to see some reasonably bullish activity based off of the conditions we observed on Friday in the premarket, we decided to make our go-to move of signaling some short-term SPY ideas. Out of that group, the Weekly $289 Calls were the most attractive play. Those traded up from a low of .55-1.54, for total possible gains of up to 180%

The Walt Disney Co. DIS – We caught DIS gapping up on our morning scan Friday, and it was cruising in the premarket. It turned into a classic gap-and-go for us as our ideas, the Weekly $122-125 Calls, which all soared.

$122 Calls – Range: 4.40-10.25 – Max Gain: 133%
$123 Calls – Range: 3.75-7.59  – Max Gain: 102%
$124 Calls – Range: 2.53-6.60 – Max Gain: 161%
$125 Calls – Range: 1.68-6.01 – Max Gain: 258%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Options & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL -Options Idea

Apple has been getting beaten back over the past several sessions, even as the company unveiled new product upgrades in Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and the Goldman Sachs/Mastercard-powered Apple Card. We will look for a rebound on the heels of some relief in the Apple camp over the company’s international dispute with Qualcomm currently under review at the International Trade Commission.

We’re going to radar the AAPL Weekly $187.50-190 Calls and track the activity there for the rest of the week. The stock has been especially volatile on a daily basis over the past week, as compared to the previous couple of months. It could lead to some sizable opportunities for us.


More Fresh Ideas

Shoe Carnival, Inc. SCVL – The setup on Shoe Carnival couldn’t be much better at the moment. The stock had come down to its lowest prices since last year prior to yesterday’s big post-market earnings beat.

We are going to want to put some contracts in this chain on watch as well- particularly, the SCVL 04/18 $35-40 Calls.
_____

Centene Corp. CNC – Centene just got pushed down well below what appeared to be a strong double bottom, and is now trading at new 52-week lows. We’re going to begin monitoring on a longer-term basis for an eventual recovery, with the CNC 09/20 $50-55 Calls.

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: IZEA, ITUS Recaps & More

ITUS Corp. ITUS 

We included a tag of ITUS in this past Thursday’s premarket report, after noticing the stock’s liquidity and price action increasing in a big way in the sessions leading up to that.

Despite already seeing big moves to that point, it was just the start for the excellent run made by this stock in the last three sessions. We observed a low of 1.92 in ITUS on Thursday, and yesterday the stock reached a new high of 4.30. That represents a three-day swing of 124%

Volume over the same period has been vastly greater than average. The whole trend was catalyzed when the company updated shareholders on its cancer detection technology, on the morning of our initial alert.


Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We’ve been tracking HMNY since  August 15th, where-after we witnessed a low of 2.42.
We were just mentioning this, and the fantastic multi-bag moves the stock has made since, in yesterday’s premarket report. We also mentioned that based on the previous close, that we’d “look for the continued establishment of higher highs and higher lows.”

Despite already having gone up so much in the course of the last five weeks, the stock’s excellent performance yesterday did push it to new highs yet again. In fact, it streaked all the way to 9.65, representing an overall move of 299% since we began tracking its activity.


IZEA, Inc. IZEA

We also want to reiterate our signal on IZEA yesterday, which made a move of 40% in trading up from its morning low of 4.54 to a high of 6.35. It was a respectable gain, but this morning the stock is gapping up and pushing the $7-mark, so we’ll jeep our eyes peeled for the possibility of a more sustained uptrend.


Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Idea

With the hint of a reversal and rebound after a rapid weeks-long selloff in AAPL, combined with a premarket gap-up this morning, we’d like to signal a range of AAPL calls to coincide with the activity and possibly help us find some quick-strike trade opportunities. We’ll radar the AAPL Weekly $150-155 Calls to try to do just that.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off the Short Week

Netflix Inc. NFLX – Options Update

We hope all of our readers enjoyed the long holiday weekend! Our first order of business this morning is to provide an update on Friday’s options trading idea. We signaled our interest in tracking the NFLX Weekly $93.50-95.50 Calls for potential daytrades, and every one of the contracts within our targeted range allowed for multi-bag single-session gains.

$93.50 Calls – Range: 1.47-3.22 – Max Gain: 119%
$94 Calls – Range: 1.16-2.75 – Max Gain: 137%
$94.50 Calls – Range: .97-2.50 – Max Gain: 158%
$95 Calls – Range: .57-2.00 – Max Gain: 251%
$95.50 Calls – Range: .31-1.53 – Max Gain: 394%

We always issue the same warning when we submit a weekly options idea on a Friday, stating that it is very high-risk. While that is true, the high reward factor like we saw here is what keeps us interested in this sort of options trading.



More Updates

Lot78, Inc. LOTE - This was one of a pair of stocks we tagged for observation in Thursday morning’s premarket report, which finished off the week on a strong note. From a low of .0037, it surged to .0063 toward the end of the session. It closed at that high of day, having made an intraday jump of 70%

We’ll remain interested in LOTE moving forward provided it can maintain support at or above the .0046 level.

______

GreenGro Technologies, Inc. GRNH – This is a stock that we’ve literally mentioned dozens of times in the past. Most recently was on Thursday, at which time we witnessed the stock trading at a nickel. Friday, it managed to reach .07, an overnight increase of 40%

We’ll also leave this on our radars going forward to watch for signs of a continued uptrend.


SAExplorations Holdings, Inc. SAEX

We’re going to be keeping an eye on SAEX, which raised flags on Friday with a hearty 70% bounce off of its 52-week low, established on Thursday.

Whenever we see stocks in this position, we’re interested in the possibility of taking advantage of the volatility and possible recovery. A return to even the current 50DMA of .48, where the stock was trading merely a week ago, would spell double-bag gains from current PPS levels.
