Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup

We had good fortune with our fresh options call yesterday, so today we’re going to be recapping the total possible gains on those plays, as well as unearthing a couple of fresh ideas to add to the mix as we close out this trading week.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Recap - Our inkling on DAL yesterday morning was to go bearish after a disappointing earnings call for the airline, with the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts. We were not disappointed with our decision to do so, as those DAL puts went on to log the following double and multi-bag intraday moves for us before lunch hour was over:

$55.50 Puts – Range: .76-1.60 – Max Gain: 110%
$55 Puts – Range: .48-1.05 – Max Gain: 119%
$54.50 Puts – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 160%
$54 Puts – Range: .13-.36 – Max Gain: 177%
$53.50 Calls – Range: .03-.17 – Max Gain: 466%

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD

Speaking of bearish options ideas, we want to enter another fresh set into the log this morning in AMD. This stock trades very cyclically, and from a technical perspective, looks as if it could continue to lose ground after a reversal this week. We’re going to place the AMD 07/21 $14-13 Puts on watch into next week in the event that our impression of this play is correct.
______

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. BJRI

Lastly on the options front, we are going to signal a range of extended-term calls on BJRI, which has a pretty attractive bottom setup on the chart at the moment. To take advantage of a potential sustained rebound, we’re going to be monitoring the BJRI 08/18 $35 & 40 Calls.

Bonus Idea: NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls


Diana Containerships. Inc. DCIX

DCIX went into a full-on nose dive recently after it was announced that the company would be taking out roughly an $85M loan to settle a monster pile of debt, and the investment community did not take the news well.

The stock has subsequently fallen to new all-time lows, and that’s where we come in. We’re always looking for stocks like this to put on bottom-watch. Being egregiously oversold, DCIX may yet have a bit further to fall, but we’ll want to be ready for a reversal at any time. The resulting bounce-back could be considerable.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MSDI Recap, PEP Options & More

Monster Digital, Inc. MSDI

We re-tagged MSDI for observation in yesterday morning’s premarket watchlist, and the stock ended up making a pretty good jump right out of the starting gate on a surge of huge volume to new new highs. This is a play that we first mentioned a few weeks back on June 19th, when it was trading in the .40-.50 range.

Yesterday it initially ran from 1.53 to its new high of 2.35 for an intraday swing of 54% though it didn’t manage to hold much of its advance into the close. Still, when all was said and done, MSDI ended up being the NASDAQ’s top gainer of the day, traded nearly sixty times its monthly average volume, and extended our total observed range since our first alert to a very respectable 408%



Pepsico, Inc. PEP – Options Ideas

Pepsi has been on a bit of a downturn of late, and despite its bearish moves of the past couple of weeks, we took notice of the fact that it has come down to rest around its 50-day moving average. The last time the stock spent any appreciable amount of time trading below that average, was more than four months ago.

Compound that with a chance for a boost from its scheduled quarterly earnings call next week (07/11), and it makes us interested to track some PEP options on the chance that the stock makes a rebound as we suspect it might.

We’ll take a look at the PEP Weekly $115 Calls for potential day/swing trades this week, and keep tabs on the PEP 07/14 $116 and $117 Calls in the event of a run into and/or following earnings this coming Tuesday.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Updates, Options & More

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

We hardly need to tell our regular readers that we caught and alerted OWCP last Thursday at a low of .0045, because it has appeared in every single one of our premarket reports since then.

It’s rare to come across a multi-day runner of any duration, but one that continues for the span of an entire week without so much as a hiccup is really something special. Yesterday the stock parlayed its four-day head of steam into another great intraday run from .0261-.0468, a jump 79%  That new high represented an overall five-session swing totaling 940%

Huge cheers go out to anyone who has participated in this epic run, which is part of the cannabis space, a sector that we’ve been tracking more closely as the landscape has been heating up. We’ll continue to track OWCP, not only for the potential of continued momentum, but for the eventual consolidation and subsequent bounceplay that’s sure to arise when that occurs.


Cannabis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CNBX

Speaking of the cannabis space, another related play that appeared in yesterday’s report went on to have itself quite a nice single-session performance.

CNBX traded in a daily range from a low of .06 to .0819 on more than triple the monthly average volume, and closed at that high. That was good for a 37% move, and with the bullish close to consider, we’ll certainly want to keep a close eye on CNBX for the possibility of continued momentum.


Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPRX

We’d also like to take a minute to update readers on the performance of CPRX over the past couple of weeks, a stock that we tagged for observation back on September 16th. On that day we observed a low of .99, and CPRX hasn’t dipped below that point since.

Over the past couple of sessions, things have really ramped up, with the stock setting a new high of 1.58 yesterday, up 60% from our witnessed low. That occurred on the third highest traded volume in the stock’s history, and the highest number of shares traded in a single day since 2013.


Aurinia Pharmceuticals, Inc. AUPH

While we’re on the topic of pharma plays we’ve tagged recently that have taken off to new highs, we also have to make mention of AUPH. We placed this stock on watch in Monday morning‘s report, and the ensuing run has been solid enough to warrant continued observation.

From a low of 3.07, the stock traded up to 4.13 (+35%) on roughly four times the monthly average volume, and is gapping up this morning to around $5, extending that figure even higher.


Fresh Options Idea – Disney Co. DIS

We like the current setup of the DIS chart, and the chances for a long-term recovery, so we want to signal a range of extended term options calls to correspond with that.

We’re going to radar the DIS 11/11 $94-96 Calls and keep track over them in the weeks ahead. .

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CPXX Buyout & More

Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPXX

Just under a couple of weeks ago, we chose to alert CPXX in our morning report from May 19th. The stock had been gaining significant ground in sessions prior to that, to the point we felt it warranted our attention.

It was a good thing we drew attention to it when we did, because what followed was a solid run-up from our observed low of 15.73 into the $18-range. This morning, our witnessed gains received yet another big boost, as a takeover has been announced that will see CPXX acquired by Jazz Pharmaceuticals for $1.5B, or, 30.25 a share.

As of this morning’s premarket high on CPXX, our observed PPS increase on the stock in a matter of just seven trading sessions has been extended to a very solid 95%


Lending Club Corp. LC

Speaking of extended gains from plays that we’ve been discussing recently, we also had LC put up a noteworthy performance on Friday that culminated in new highs for us since we began tracking the stock.

Just to refresh our readers’ memories, we called LC as a bottom-bounce candidate last Monday, at which time we observed a low of 4.19. Friday’s run carried it to a high of 5.10, marking an intraweek move of 22%

We’re going to want to continue to monitor its progress as the chart is still looking quite ripe for a continued uptrend. As you can see on the provided chart snapshot, we’ve got a steadily-strengthening RSI combined with a recent bullish MACD cross in addition to a significant gap on the chart that runs from the 5.50′s to the 6.70′s.


Cliffs Natural Resources, Inc. CLF

We’re also going to place a tag on CLF this morning. We like the recent activity and the look of the current chart. Like the aforementioned play, we’re faced with a number of bullish indicators that are urging us to keep CLF on our radars as we kick off a new trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates on PPCH, Options & More

Propanc Health Group Corp. PPCH

We played PPCH like a fiddle this week, after calling attention to it in Tuesday morning’s premarket report. That morning, we observed a low of .0188 and the stock hasn’t looked back since. What followed has been three consecutive sessions of higher highs and higher lows.

Yesterday’s intraday performance alone was quite respectable, with PPCH running from a daily low of .0225 to a new high of .037. That represented a spike of 64% on the day, and a total increase of 97% over our observed low from Tuesday.

We’ll be interested in PPCH as long as it maintains support above the current 50DMA (.019), while the next bank of resistance is sitting at the 200DMA at .042.


Dollar General, Inc. (DG)

We offered our two cents on how to take advantage of Dollar General’s earnings beat yesterday, and that was with the DG Weekly $78-80.50 Calls. With the exception of the 80.50′s, which didn’t trade much volume, every one of the contracts in our target range exploded for exponential gains!

$78 Calls – Trading Range: .55-5.00 – Max Gain: 809%
$78.50 Calls – Trading Range: .40-4.70 – Max Gain: 1075%
$79 Calls – Trading Range: .60-3.53 – Max Gain: 488%
$79.50 Calls – Trading Range: .27-2.10 – Max Gain: 678%
$80 Calls – Trading Range: .66-2.79 – Max Gain: 323%

SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) – Weekly $199-202 Calls

Finisar Corp FNSR – Weekly  $15 and $16 Calls

Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. ULTA - Weekly $175-185 Calls

*As we always do, let us warn our readers o  the extreme caution which must be exercised by anyone attempting to trade weekly contracts on Friday. It’s a high risk proposition, and not for the faint of heart!


Mexus Gold US  MXSG

We also want to take a second and update readers on another of our recent successes. MXSG started appearing on our radars back on February 5th when it was as low as .0016. In a little over a month’s time we’ve witnessed a 1025% gain (a/o yesterday’s .018 high).

Those who may have missed that original alert still could have caught our reminder this week on Wednesday. The stock was trading as low as .011 at the time, and at yesterday’s high mark, we’d seen a two-session swing of 64%
