Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PANW Pops & More

Palo Alto Networks, Inc. PANW

Fresh for yesterday’s morning report, we offered up an idea for the PANW chain, the PANW Weekly $215-222.50 Calls. With the aid of an excellent session for the markets as a whole, PANW went with the trend and produced enough intraday movement to provide us with significant single-session gain opportunities.

Here were the maximum possible gains that were on the table for the day, which were, quite frankly, very impressive:

$215 Calls – Range: .20-2.06 – Max Gain: 930%
$217.50 Calls – Range: .15-1.05 – Max Gain: 600%
$220 Calls – Range: .06-.38 – Max Gain: 533%
$222.50 Calls – Range: .06-.20 – Max Gain: 233%

PVH Corp. PVH

Our next order of business as we close out this holiday-shortened week is to provide further updates on PVH. We scored multi-bag gains with all three of our highlighted contracts,  the PVH 09/20 $75-85 Calls on Wednesday, and cautioned readers that more gains could be on the way in yesterday’s report.

That’s exactly what occurred, so this morning we are updating the highs on our ideas, which extend the total possible profits over a two-day span by a significant margin. 

$75 Calls – Range: 5.10-9.89 – Max Gain: 94%
$80 Calls – Range: 2.00-5.60 – Max Gain: 180%

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – The other plays we had placed on our radar yesterday morning was the SPY 10/31 $275-277 Calls as we awaited a recovery from this week’s early losses. While the markets didn’t gain any ground from the open, there was a big dip-and-rip scenario which allowed for some very solid gains in our designated plays.

$275.50 Calls – Range: 1.02-2.69 – Max Gain: 164%

The Boeing Co. BA Weekly $357.50-367.50
Caterpillar, Inc.CAT 11/16 $120-123 Calls


Barrick Gold Corp. ABX

We want to provide a quick update on a recent tag of ours this morning. Exactly 4 weeks ago to the day, we placed ABX on watch, and the stock has enjoyed a continuous uphill climb ever since, even despite the markets at large having a rough couple of weeks.

Subsequent to our alert on the 24th of last month, we witnessed a low of 10.72, and yesterday the stock reached a PPS of 14.10, marking a solid 32% increase, which is nothing to sneeze at with a $10+ stock in just a month. We’ll continue to track its movements going forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EGN Update & More

Energen Corp. EGN

A longer-term set of ideas we recently formulated were the EGN 09/21 $75 & 77.50 Calls. from our report on Monday morning. The contracts had shown marginal increases that day, but since then have added considerably to the highs we’ve observed.

We witnessed the following intraweek moves in these solid contracts, and with plenty of time left before expiration, even more gains are not out of the question.

The $75 Calls have thus far gone from  1.10-3.80 (+245%), while the $77.50′s have traded from .93-2.50 (+169%).
