SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) –  2nd Update

We have basically called the activity in the SPY this week absolutely perfectly. On Monday we signaled the
the SPY 06/19 $289-290.50 Calls,  and while we only saw moderate gains on the first day of trading, we did reiterate our interest in them in yesterday’s morning report.

We mentioned that the premarket activity suggested that further gains for our tracked contracts were on the way, and we couldn’t have been more on the money.  Here are the updated two-day upswings that we have now seen out of the SPY on those initially targeted contracts.

$289 Calls – Range: 1.50-4.60 – Max Gain: 207%
$289.50 Calls – Range: 1.24-4.15 – Max Gain: 235%
$290 Calls – Range: 1.00-3.72 – Max Gain: 272%
$290.50 Calls – Range: .80-3.31 – Max Gain: 314%

For those paying attention, in yesterday’s SPY update, we also rolled up to include another pair of ideas, the SPY 06/19 $291-291.50 Calls, and those too saw some excellent intraday gain opportunities.

$291 Calls – Range: 1.20-2.95 – Max Gain: 146%
$291.50 Calls – Range: .96-2.55 – Max Gain: 166%

FRESH IDEA: 

Adobe, Inc. ADBE Weekly $285-290 Calls 



SunPower Corp. SPWR

We also want to comment on what has turned into one of the most steady-growth movers of 2019, in SPWR. We began tracking this play all the way back in January. We typically go after quick-strike opportunities, but it became very apparent after awhile that SPWR was good for a much longer term look.

The ground it has covered in this calendar year has been incredible. From our observed low of 5.06 just a couple days after our alert, the stock has now scored a double-bagger, and then some. Yesterday it hit a new high of 11.01, marking a total increase of 118%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AVGO Options Recap & More

Broadcom, Inc. AVGO – Recap

To close out the week on Friday, we took our usual approach in signaling some last-minute options ideas for possible daytrades. In this particular case, we were attracted to the AVGO Weekly $252.50-257.50 Calls, and we’re pleased to report total success on that front, with the help of an eleven-dollar swing from AVGO shares themselves.

All three of the contract sets contained within our designated range produced impressive gain opportunities on the day. The total possible profits for daytraders on each set were as follows: 

$252.50 Calls – Range: 7.95-13.65 – Max Gain: 72%
$255 Calls – Range: 6.14-11.00 – Max Gain: 95%
$257.50 Calls – Range: 2.70-8.00 – Max Gain: 196%

FRESH OPTIONS IDEA: 

We’ll also formulate a new options idea to start off the week this morning. The market looks like it wants to turn around again today, so we’ll go ahead and slate the SPY 06/19 $289-290.50 Calls as our ones to watch.  



BOTTOM WATCHLIST:

We’ve also got a three pack of bottom plays with freshly reported earnings today. We’ll place all of the following on watch for possible rebounds this week.

Freds, Inc. FRED
FuelCell Energy, Inc. FCEL
Fang Holdings, Ltd. SFUN

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BBBY Options & More

Bed Bath & Beyond, Inc. BBBY

The last time we were mentioning Bed Bath & Beyond, was back in January when the stock was trading just below $14. It’s been in a solid uptrend more recently, reaching over 19.50 yesterday. However, we’re getting a bearish feeling from the chart now, especially following the company’s earnings report for the 4th quarter yesterday postmarket.

The company came fairly close to analyst expectations on earnings, yet recorded same-store sales declines for the seventh quarter in a row as e-commerce players like Amazon continue to horn in on brick-and-mortar reliant chains.

We are going to track a bearish options idea into the end of the week for this chain, with the BBBY Weekly $17.50-17 Puts, with the stock already being down a couple of dollars from yesterday’s highs here in the premarket.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL, SPY Winners & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Recap

We submitted two separate options trading ideas in yesterday morning’s premarket report, the first of which being the AAPL Weekly $160-162.50 Calls. It’s beeen quite some time since we played with the AAPL chain, but it is the stock that originally brought us into the fold of options day and swing trading that we’ve adopted as one of our main functions.

It came as no surprise when the Fed announced no interest rate hike yesterday that the markets responded bullishly and allowed for some very nice multi-bag moves on our designated targets.

$160 Calls – Range: 2.14-6.32 – Max Gain: 195%
$162.50 Calls – Range: 1.05-4.19 – Max Gain: 299%

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Recap 

Our second set of options ideas from yesterday were the SPY Weekly $264-265.50 Calls, and of course, those also fared well with the SPY being an excellent market analog, and another well that we revisit on a regular basis for short term options plays.

The gains on our highlighted contracts were even more impressive in this case, with each and every strike point returning potential gains ranging from 343-598% in a single session.

$264 Calls – Range: 1.07-4.74 – Max Gain: 343%
$264.50 Calls – Range: .82-4.03 – Max Gain: 385%
$265 Calls – Range: .59-3.50 – Max Gain: 493%
$265.50 Calls – Range: .43-3.00 – Max Gain: 598%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BABA Options & More

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd BABA – Options

To kick off this brand new trading week, we are interested in tracking a range of calls in the BABA chain, after shares dipped on the news that co-Founder Jack Ma will be stepping down and handing full control over to the CEO effect next year.

The reactionary selloff may provide us with some solid options trading chances, so we are going to keep an eye on the BABA 10/12 $165 & 167.50 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.


OPKO Health Inc. OPK

Shares of OPK took a bath on Friday, briefly falling below the stock’s 200DMA, and closing well in the red on the day. We’re going to signal our interest in tracking OPK as a bottom-watch play.

The stock is approaching extremely oversold territory, and in the midst of its downturn we observed some Form-4 submissions, with insiders buying up shares on Friday as the bottom fell out.

That suggests a confidence that it may not have much further to fall, so we will want to hang around as OPK searches for a bottom and solid rebound point.
