Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WMT Options & More

Walmart, Inc. WMT – Options Idea

Walmart was already building a nice head of steam on the chart in the weeks leading up to this morning’s earnings release. Things have kicked up a notch this morning as Walmart recorded a resounding across-the-board beat, including an online sales increase of 33%

Given that we are always looking out for opportunities to trade options on the heels of a solid earnings beat, we are going to slate some Walmart calls for observation this morning.

We’ll be tracking the WMT Weekly $86.50-88.50 Calls after what we expect should be a dip-and-rip scenario.


Altimmune, Inc. ALT

We would also like to make mention of ALT this morning, after taking notice of the significant pickup in both price action and volatility yesterday.

That was preceded by a lengthy consolidation period as you can see on the snapshot below, and at the present time, the stock is beginning to come off of being oversold. We’ll watch this one for a potential recovery play in upcoming sessions.

BDSI, BIOC, BLNK, IMMU, FRED, NOG

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TSLA Review & More

Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Recap

Our fresh options idea for the day yesterday morning was a range of puts in the TSLA  chain, on the heels of its poorly-received earnings call. What resulted, as the stock began the session under duress, were some very nice opportunities for us before lunchtime.

Our designated range was the TSLA Weekly $285-277.50 Puts and we happily observed the following solid moves:

$285 Calls – Range: 4.95-10.74 – Max Gain: 117%
$282.50 Calls – Range: 3.92-8.90 – Max Gain: 127%
$280 Calls – Range: 2.94-7.21 – Max Gain: 145%
$277.50 Calls – Range: 2.30-5.78 – Max Gain: 151%



Potential Bottom Plays

Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. ESPR – We like the look of the ESPR chart for a potential extended recovery play. As you can see on the chart the stock has been in quite a bit of trouble over the past few sessions, losing roughly half of its previous value in a matter of just a few days.We’re always looking for heavily oversold stocks in line for the chance at a big rebound.


________

Iconix Brand Group, Inc. ICON – We also want to add this one to our watchlist. The stock has been pushed way down amid an SEC investigation concerning ICON and a famous partner of the company, award-winning recording artist Jay-Z, and his Rocawear brand.

As you can see below, in addition to a more steady backslide that dates back much further, the stock has really gone into free fall in recent sessions, resulting in a scenario that could produce a significant rebound, which we’ll want to be looking for.
