Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY, CHFS & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We want to start things off today by looking to take advantage of the big rebound in the markets yesterday. When we want to play the markets as a whole, we generally look to the SPY options chain, and that’s what we’re going to do today as well.

We are seeing a significant gap up this morning, and are going to be looking for a classic dip-and-rip scenario due to profit taking. Our targets are going to be the SPY Weekly $264-266 Calls provided that support can hold above this morning’s premarket low of 263.56 on any pullbacks in order to remain interested.



CHF Solutions Inc. CHFS

We also want to highlight CHFS this morning as a possible bottom play. The stock is gapping up in the premarket past its 50DMA, and there is a massive gap on the chart to the upside from just under $5 to just under $8.

We’re going to put CHFS, which prior to today had already been approaching heavily oversold territory, on watch over the next few sessions for the possibility of a more sustained rebound.


Cronos Group, Inc. CRON

We’re getting a strong bottom bouncer signal from CRON as well this morning, and we wanted to highlight this chart also.

CRON is currently exhibiting most of the things we look for in a bottom play, and we’re excited to see where it could go in the near term, as it looks like there could be some serious upside here.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GERN Recap & More

Geron Corp. GERN – Recap
It’s all well and good to seek out stocks that are set to make a big jump overnight, but slower growth plays also interest us greatly. GERN is an example of a stock that we tagged near the beginning of last month (02.05) which has performed well over an extended period of several weeks.

Subsequent to our tag of GERN, the stock saw a low of 2.025, and in a series of small, incremental daily gains, it steadily made its way up to a high of 4.47 yesterday, representing an increase of 121%. That’s a very respectable gain in roughly a six week period.


Wheeler Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc. WHLR

We want to take this opportunity to place WHLR on watch as a potential bottom-play. The stock has been greatly abused over the past several months, falling well below all its moving averages, and reaching egregiously oversold territory. There is also a fairly large gap on chart to the upside, something for which we routinely look.

We’ll keep an eye on WHLR in sessions to come looking for the confirmation of a bounce. It certainly has plenty of room to run when that occurs, so keep a sharp eye out.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FL Earnings & More

Foot Locker, Inc. FL

The markets took a beating yesterday, and we appear to be headed for another generally bearish session. On a normal day, we’d look for post-earnings plays that had a beat and were gapping up in the premarket. Today, we were looking for an earnings miss and a stock on its way down, and FL fits the mold.

The company’s Q4 earnings disappointed on sales and guidance and it appears that, coupled with current market conditions, a play on some puts may yield quick strike opportunities today. We’re going to zero in on the FL 03/16 $45-41 Puts.



iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures (ETN) VXX

As we said, another turbulent day for the markets could be headed our way to finish out the week, so we’re going to want to keep mostly to the bearish side of the street.

Much as the SPY trades with the market, the VXX trades inversely to it. Instead of SPY puts, we’ll go with VXX calls today for another possible quick strike options idea. We’re looking at the VXX Weekly $47-49 Calls.

*Trading weekly options on a Friday should never be attempted unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NFLX Options & More

Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. SRNE

Recently we’ve been delving back into our reports from late 2017, to review the ones that have made notable moves, and next up on the list SRNE.

We last signaled our interest in this as a bottom-watch play back on November 16th, and while it took a couple weeks for it to get out of its sideways-trading funk, the beginning of December brought the start of a fantastic run from an ultimate low of 2.15 that has persisted into the present. Yesterday the stock reached a new annual high of 8.05 (highest PPS since October ’16), marking an increase of 274%

This most recent push in what has definitely been a steady but sharp rise of the past six weeks may have been helped along by Celgene’s (CELG) buyout of Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), which share a market space with SRNE. The company also has some promising treatments in its pipeline.

Volume has recently been ramping up in a big way, too, so we’ll definitely continue to have an eye on this stock’s activity.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options Idea

We’re always looking for a good opportunity to make some quick gains in the wake of a big company’s earnings, and NFLX is one that we’ve had quite a bit of experience with in that arena.

That’s why we’re going to enter an idea into the log this morning in the NFLX Weekly $247.50-255 Calls as the company posted a promising report including the addition of more than eight million new subscribers even despite its recent price increases.

Shares of NFLX broke a double top and are in blue skies, hitting a new all time high, so we’re very interested to track the ideas we’ve identified. They may be able to furnish us with some impressive gains.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NBEV Bottom Bounce & More

New Age Beverages Corp. NBEV

We tagged NBEV as a possible bottom-bouncer in our premarket report yesterday morning, and stock has definitely risen to the occasion with the beginnings of what could be a significant rebound.

The stock had been trending down for the better part of the last six months, having started the summer trading at more than $6/share. It seemed a good time to call a bottom, and so far our idea is looking good.

While it’s off to a slow start, rising just 17% from 2.20 to 2.58 yesterday on its highest volume in over four months, we feel good about the chances of a more sustained move, especially with the stock hitting a new high of 3.42 in the premarket today. From yesterday’s low that’s already a swing of 55% We’ll be sure to keep an eye peeled for further movement from this bottom bouncer.


Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL 

We’re no strangers to trading DAL options. It has traditionally been one of those companies we can count on to provide good post-earnings opportunities after a beat, and today the company exceeded expectations across the board in their Q4 report.

We’re are going to signal a range of contracts which will be expiring tomorrow to try to garner some rapid-strike chances. Our targets are going to be the DAL Weekly $57-58 Calls.
