Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FDX, RAS Recaps & More

FedEx Corp. FDX

On Tuesday morning, we had a set FDX options ideas that were among our main focal points. Avid readers will recall that we signaled our interest in Weekly FDX $140-145 Calls, and over the course of the last three days, with the exception of the $140’s, each set of contracts put up noteworthy intraweek swings.

The following trading ranges represent the lows from the day of our initial calls to yesterday’s highs:

$141 Calls – Trading Range: 4.06-12.19  – Max Gain: 200%
$142 Calls – Trading Range: 3.39-14.40  – Max Gain: 325%
$143 Calls – Trading Range: 2.98-11.86  – Max Gain: 299%
$144 Calls – Trading Range: 2.55-10.65 – Max Gain: 318%
$145 Calls – Trading Range: 3.01-11.60 – Max Gain: 285%

RAIT Financial Trust  RAS

We’d also like to update our readers on the progress of RAS since we tagged it as a possible bottom play on Tuesday after noticing it recording new 52-week lows on Monday. The stock has managed to post gains for each of the three sessions since then, meaning that our timing in catching the bottom was essentially flawless.

Our observed low on RAS was 2.30, and it gradually stair-stepped its way to a high of 2.84 yesterday. That marks a steady rise of 23% and a confirmed three-day uptrend, the continued signs of which we’ll be watching for in coming sessions.

Fresh Options Idea –  Blackberry Ltd. BBRY

BBRY is gapping up on earnings beat this morning- Wall Street was expecting a fourteen-cent loss per share and the company only posted a three-cent loss per share. We’ll look to take advantage of the current conditions by looking for a dip-and-rip on BBRY. If things go as we suspect they might, we’ll want to watch Weekly 7.50-8.50 Calls for what could be significant intraday swings today.

Cardinal Resources, Inc. CDNL

We were tracking CDNL at the end of last month and the stock went on to make a nice move of 167%  as it ran from .0225 to .06. After consolidating down to a low of .03 last Tuesday, it has made another nice move to yesterday’s high of .068, another swing of 147%

We’ll keep CDNL on our radars moving forward, watching for the setting of higher highs and higher lows. There still appears to be room for the chart to grow in the near-term.

EffTec International, Inc. EFFI

EFFI was the standout play from yesterday’s daily report; we gained interest in this familiar play after noticing some abnormal volume and a PPS spike during Friday’s session.

The momentum it had built up was able to carry over into this new trading week, as the stock made its way from a low of .004 to .0056. It marked an intraday swing of 40% and puts us on alert for the possibility of further advances.

In terms of the technicals, the RSI just cracked into the power zone and the MACD is still bullish in appearance, with some serious upward divergence currently in effect. Provided the stock can continue to register higher lows on its way up, we’ll reserve space for it on our working watchlist.

RAIT Financial Trust  RAS

RAS has come to our attention as a stock that has been plummeting of late, and we’re beginning to speculate as to how long the decline can continue. Though it may still have a ways to fall before ultimately reversing, we want to place it on a close bottom-watch as we feel the eventual rebound could produce palpable upward swings, especially with such a large gap to fill on the chart (pointed out below).

Hypothetically speaking, a return to its pre-gap levels would mean gains in excess of 75% over the current share price.

Fresh Options Idea – FedEx

FDX is presently trading near a prior support level, and with earnings scheduled for the post-market tomorrow, we want to signal a possible options trading idea.

We’re going to want to radar contracts in the range of Weekly FDX $140-145 Calls today and tomorrow for activity running up to the earnings call, incidentally, in the midst of the busiest time of year for parcel deliveries. Things could get quite interesting for this play inside of the next 36 hours, so we’ll be sure to keep our eyes peeled.
