Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CNXS Recap & More

Connexus Corp. CNXS

After initially tagging CNXS on Thursday May 25th amid a major spike of bitcoin hysteria, we witnessed a low of .0007 in the stock, and in the six sessions that have followed it has been building up quite a head of steam.

From that initial observed low, CNXS has gone on to hit a high of .003. which represents a very nice move of 329% while volume over this recent period has been heightened considerably.

We’ve been noticing a few other newsletters finally catching on, but to our knowledge we were the first to the party on CNXS. We’ll continue to monitor its progress moving forward, and will remain interested provided it holds support at or above a previous area of resistance at .0018 on any pullbacks.


FitBit, Inc. FIT – Options Idea

After sitting on the sidelines for many months on FIT, and watching the stock get crushed, we’ve seen it beginning to come up off of its recently established 52-week lows and are beginning to see it as a potential value play.

If our inkling is correct, a play of FIT stock itself would likely work out rather well over the longer term, but as our readers are aware, we like to try to score big with options plays when an opportunity presents itself.

In this case, we’d like to signal a range of extended-term contracts with an August expiration, namely, the FIT 08/18 $5-7 Calls. This will give us plenty of time for FIT to restablish itself and hopefully mount the recovery that appears possible given the current look of the chart.



Celsion Corp. CLSN

Speaking of bottom plays, we’re noticing that CLSN has recently registered a new annual low on Wednesday, and has been attempting to gain some traction and come up off of that bottom.

With the stock very close to extreme oversold territory, we’ll want to place it on watch as a possible rebound play.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings Season Continues to Yield Results

Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. SRPT – Update

We caught SRPT yesterday after the stock had just registered a new annual low on Tuesday, and recognized an opportunity to pounce on some short-term gains using the options chain. We said we wanted to see the stock flirt with the swing high from the previous session, and it did just that. Our options idea of tracking the SRPT Weekly $10.50 and $11 Calls worked out immediately.

We witnessed a range on the $10.50′s from .40-1.35 (+237%) and from .39-1.01 on the $11′s, an intraday pop of 159% But those big gains are going to pale in comparison to the new highs we’re going to witness this morning as the stock has gapped up with vigor in the premarket this morning to a new high of 14.40.

In the stock itself, that’s an impressive overnight swing of 38% and as we said, those options contracts are sure to show us new highs as things get going today. All in all we’d have to say that we made a heck of a bottom call on SRPT, and will continue to track its progress.


Options – More Updates, More Ideas

We also want to follow up with the Idea we had from earlier in the week, the BP Weekly $32-33.50 Calls, which already provided us gains ranging from 30-95% on Tuesday. There were intraday profits to be made for the second straight day, which were as follows:

$32 Calls – Trading Range: 1.55-1.88 – Max Gain: 21%
$32.50 Calls – Trading Range: 1.10-1.40 – Max Gain: 27%
$33 Calls– Trading Range: .62-1.06 – Max Gain: 71%
$33.50 Calls – Trading Range: .35-.57 – Max Gain: 63%

We had a good two-day run with BP, but with Q1 earnings season in full swing, its time to turn our attention to the next opportunity.

That’s going to come in the form of Facebook Inc. FB options. The stock is gapping up to new all-time highs at the moment in the wake of its own earning beat, currently trading over $121 in the premarket.

Provided it holds support at the previous all-time high of 117.59 on any pullbacks, we are going to want to pay close attention to the FB Weekly $118-122 Calls. If the momentum appears strong enough, we may even consider rolling up our strike price to the $123-level and higher, as the situation dictates.


Others to Watch

Finally, we have a couple of other plays to add to a watchlist this morning. Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS, and Immune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IMNP.

We first began tracking AEZS in 2016 in late January, shortly before witnessing a low of 2.71 (02/11). The stock has made a couple of nice moves in recent months, and is currently gapping up in the premarket to new high 4.87. That represents an 80% over our observed low from a few months back. We’ll have our eye on its activity as things kick off this morning.

In the case of IMNP, we’ve got a stock that has seen a good deal of insider buying, and is trying to maintain an uptrend off of its recent lows over the past few sessions. It’s gapping up slightly this morning to .43, so we’re going to want to watch for a break of the current 50DMA of .46 today.

We also want to pay attention to Dreamworks Animation SKG Inc. DWA which we signaled in yesterday’s report over buyout talks that were occurring. The buyout has been confirmed, so hold on to your hats if you made entry at yesterday’s prices!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Options Winners & More

Friday Recap: Huge Options Success

Even during such times when big stock gainers are difficult to come by, we’ve managed to balance the scales with some excellent options ideas. It hasn’t been just a few either, a fact to which our regular readers can surely attest. It’s been one great idea after another, and Friday’s premarket report included still more premium chances for big intraday profits!

Our specific targets were UVXY Weekly $33-35 Calls, and SPY Weekly 205-203.50 Puts and there were no contracts within the specified ranges that didnt make an appreciable move during the session. The epic moves were as follows:

Pro-Shares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures (UVXY) Calls
$33 Calls – Trading Range: 1.01-4.70 – Max Gain: 365%
$33.50 Calls – Trading Range: .80-4.13 – Max Gain: 416%
$34 Calls – Trading Range: .59-3.70 – Max Gain: 527%
$34.50 Calls – Trading Range: .45-2.82 – Max Gain: 526%

$204 Puts - Trading Range: .33-1.60 – Max Gain: 385%
$203.50 Puts – Trading Range: .20-1.17 – Max Gain: 485%

Big cheers go out to any of our readers who were with us on these monstrously successful calls (and puts) on Friday! As we said, most of the options ideas we’ve been formulating have been home runs, and these plays were no different.

___

As a bonus idea, we included a flag of the FitBit, Inc. FIT  Weekly $30 and 29 Puts, and some stellar gains were possible there as well:

$30 Puts - Trading Range: 1.00-2.80  – Max Gain: 180%
$29 Puts – Trading Range: .54-2.17 – Max Gain: 302%


Bottom-Watch Plays

Magnum Hunter Resources Corp. MHRC

We’re going to signal our interest in MHRC as a potential bottom-play this morning, and a quick viewing of the chart will show why. The stock has been beaten senseless in recent sessions, and is well into what we’d characterize as heavily oversold territory. It has managed to register higher lows in each of the past three sessions, so we’ll be watching for a continuation of that trend up off of the recently recorded 52-week low.

___

SunEdison, Inc. SUNE

We’ve had our eye on SUNE as the apparently undervalued stock was searching for a bottom. We were looking for solid signs that it had found that bottom and was readying for a rebound, and over the past couple of sessions, we’ve seen the signals we were after. We’re going to officially place this one on watch as we kick off a new week, as we feel the stock to be grossly undervalued at the current PPS.


Trader’s Chat Winner

We also want to give a quick shout-out to DJ from our live trader’s chat* on Friday, who called out the NFLX $105 Puts which subsequently ran from .25-1.63 (+552%). Cheers, DJ!

*Remember, any of our valued readers has to do to get in on our daily trader’s chats, is log into (or create) your Skype account and send a contact request to ‘stocksumo’. We’d be happy to allow any interested parties to participate!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Ideas, Rebound Play & More

JC Penney Company Inc. JCP – Options Review

If you recall yesterday’s premarket report, we were targeting some JCP options calls to play off of the anticipation of this morning’s earnings release. Our idea returned some nice opportunities for intraday gains. We were specifically looking to the JCP Weekly $8.50 Calls for these chances, and those contracts traded in a range from .39-61 during yesterday’s session. That made it possible for traders to bank up to 56% in intraday profits.

As for JCP’s Q3 earning release, expectations were exceeded and yet the stock is still down considerably in the premarket. Many people are citing an overall struggle for the retail sector as a whole this quarter as the reasoning behind some of the less-than-spectacular performances we’re seeing.

Fresh Options Ideas:

To finish out the week, we’ll formulate a couple of quick-strike options ideas to correspond with the general sentiment of the markets this morning. Stocks have been continuing to struggle, presumably due at least in part, to the uncertainty of a potential rate-hike next month. As a result the UVXY (can be thought of as a ‘market fear’ indicator)  just made its biggest move of the past few weeks and looks like it wants to head higher this morning.

To play into this potential trend we’re going to flag both the UVXY Weekly $33-35 Calls, and the SPY Weekly 205-203.50 Puts for potential daytrading action.

Of course, if the markets pull a head-fake and appear as if they to want to rally, we can always jump to the other side of the fence with each idea. In that case we’d be observing the same strike prices, only with UVXY Puts and SPY Calls.

Bonus Idea: FIT Weekly $30 and 29 Puts


MannKind Corp. MNKD

We’re also going to put MNKD on watch in sessions to come; the stock established a new 52-week low on Wednesday, and followed that up with a significant rebound yesterday.

We’ll be on the lookout for the recording of higher highs and higher lows and a testing of key resistance at the 50DMA of 3.26, which from current levels, would spell a solid gain of 25% in and of itself.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Bottom-Plays & More

OncoNova Therapeutics, Inc. ONTX

ONTX is hitting the scanner as a premarket gapper this morning, on the heels of a PR announcing a “pivotal” Phase III drug trial. (>>View PR)

The stock’s 1-year analyst price target of $5 doesn’t seem all that far-fetched, especially if ONTX can break past resistance in the channel between 3.00-3.25 as we’ve outlined on the following chart snapshot. Also looking ripe are the RSI which is creeping toward the 50-line, and the MACD in the midst of bullish cross.

We’ll continue to keep an eye on the stock today and into next week.


Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea

To carry on our recent tradition of presenting weekly options ideas on Friday (which has yielded us some truly epic gains), we have TSLA. Remember, trading weekly contracts so close to expiration carries added risk, so we always need to exercise extra caution when doing so.

The stock is responding well to news that the company’s share offering would be increased to nearly 2.7M shares, or $642.5M. As a result of this increased activity, we’ve identified the range in which the heaviest action is likely to occur in the event of a sustained uptrend.

Our main target area will be TSLA Weekly $242.50-247.50 Calls. We’ll of course begin with the lowest strike price, which is currently in the money, and roll it up from there as needed, depending on how the day’s trading activity unfolds.


Potential Bottom-Play

Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. PSUN – We also want to quickly make mention of PSUN, which we’ve noticed has come down to new 52-week lows. As our regulars our well aware by now, these sorts of plays have been an area of extreme success lately. Just take a look at the chart to see what we mean. This is a stock that is sorely due for a rebound, and we intend to be watching closely for when that occurs.
