Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options for the Week & More

Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. ARKA – Update

We placed RKDA on watch on Friday morning’s premarket report. We caught it off of one of our routine premarket scans, and determined that a bounce play was a good possibility. Not only did we get what we were looking for, but the stock looks ready to gap-up once again this morning.

From a daily low of 2.70 the stock reached as high as 4.97, marking an intraday increase of 84% When measured to today’s new premarket high of 6.42, it works out to a two day swing of 138% and gives us good cause to continue to monitor its activity as we open up a new trading week.


DXC Technologies, Inc. DXC – Recap 

We went bearish on DXC in Friday’s report, offering up an options idea of the DXC 08/16 $40-37.50 Puts. Both of those contracts performed well as DXC had the floor fall out from beneath it, posting the worst daily loss in nearly two decades.

The $40 Puts ran from 2.66-5.00, representing an intraday pop of 88% while the $37.50′s soared into multibag gainer territory with a move from 1.00-3.10, a gain of 210%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EBIO, HRB Updates & More

H&R Block, Inc. HRB – Options Update

The options idea we formulated and passed along to our readers on Friday for HRB was far away our best play of the week, and an excellent way to wrap it up. Our specific target range that we highlighted in this case was the HRB 06/17 $21-23 Calls. and we ended up seeing monstrous moves out of each of the contained contracts.

$21 Calls – Trading Range: .60-3.30 – Max Gain: 450%
$22 Calls – Trading Range: .15-2.30 – Max Gain: 1430%
$23 Calls– Trading Range: .05-1.30 – Max Gain: 2500%

Added Reminder:

The other options play we set our sights on in Friday morning’s report was Global Blood Therapeutics,Inc. GBT – 06/17 $20-30 Calls. We saw some moderate activity as the stock ran early in the day, before tapering off. As they don’t expire until the end of this week, we just wanted to reiterate the possibility of more pronounced moves if GBT maintains support at 22.00 or above.


Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. EBIO 

The last time we reminded folks about our interest in EBIO, a stock that has appeared in our reports many times in the past, was on June 3rd. On that day, we were commenting on an earlier alert we put out on it back in May while EBIO’s PPS was at .80, after seeing it run up to its then-high of 2.10.

It ended up topping out at 2.60 on the afternoon of the 3rd, and has since been under light consolidation. It reached a support level of 1.62 on Friday, before beginning to rebound, and this morning it has gapped up hard in the premarket to a new high of 3.55 on the strength of an attractive PR (link below).

From our observed low in May, it represents an overall increase of 344% We’ll want to see the stock’s previous resistance level of 2.60 hold as support on any early pullbacks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GBSN Review, Options Update & More


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Recap

Our first options idea of this short week turned out to be a rousing success by all accounts. We noted the change in the tides regarding a general market rebound aided by a healthy surge for oil, and proposed a range of weekly contracts in the SPY to help us leverage some gain opportunities out of those conditions. We signaled our interest in the SPY Weekly $188-191 Calls and were met with some very good chances as the SPY itself steadily pushed from 187.63 to 189.81, closing very close to that high mark.

As a result, all eight of our observed contracts enjoyed significant surges. We’ll simply provide a range of the possible gains in the interest of time. The $188 Calls traded up from 1.64-2.65  for gains of up to 72% while at the other end of the spectrum, the $191′s ran 123% from .39-.87. Again- commensurate gains were available anywhere in that $188-191 Range. 

This morning it appears as if those figures will be extended as the SPY once again gaps up in the premarket, having already breached into the $190′s; we’ll be on the lookout for a possible dip-and-rip.  Another boost for the markets today would mark the first three-day rally of 2016.


Great Basin Scientific, Inc. GBSN

We had been passively monitoring GBSN for a bottom for quite some time when we finally decided to make mention of it in our morning report yesterday. The stock was in an overall downtrend for many months leading up to its all-time low which was recorded just last month.

We seem to have brought GBSN back into the fold at a very opportune moment, as yesterday marked one the stock’s largest single-session gains of the year so far. From its morning low of .1951, we watched as it shot to a daily high of .2698 which hashes out to a healthy intraday day pop of 38% on double its 3-month average volume.

Ideally we’d like to see GBSN maintain support above yesterday’s swing low while attempting to test the key area of current resistance at a previous swing high of .33.


Rockwell Medical, Inc. RMTI 

Another notable mover from yesterday’s session is RMTI, which managed a strong push over the first couple hours of trading. The stock traded from a daily low of 6.90 on up to 8.63 on approximately four times its 3-month average volume, which represented a respectable 25% move up.

We’ll continue to keep an eye on RMTI moving forward, especially in light of the interesting PR to hit wires this morning alluding to a potentially lucrative agreement that puts the company in line to market its treatment for end-stage renal and chronic kidney diseases in China.


Other Notable Gainers

Provision Holding, Inc. PVHO

We tagged PVHO for observation in our report dated a week ago today, meaning it took just four sessions for this idea to yield a great opportunity for a lucrative swing-trade. We observed a low of .084 subsequent to that alert and the stock hasn’t looked back since. It has set higher highs in each ensuing session, culminating in yesterday’s high of .18. That marked a move of 114% so cheers to anyone who was along for the ride!

Horsehead Holding Corp. ZINC(Q)

We introduced ZINCQ as ZINC a couple of weeks ago before the Q was appended, and despite the bankruptcy status, we’ve seen quite the move out of the stock.

We showed up slightly early to the party, introducing it as a bottom-watch play on the first of this month, but that just ensured that we had a chance to position ourselves before the fun began. Our observed low subsequent to that initial alert was .06 just a couple days hence, and that eventually gave way to yesterday’s impressive new high of .335, which marks an epic 458% run.
