Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Big Winners & More

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF – Options Recap

We initially placed a pair of options ideas for ANF on watch in our premarket report Thursday, highlighting the ANF Weekly $10 & $11 Calls.

We saw multi-bag moves in those contracts that day, and Friday morning, we noted yet another premarket gap-up from the stock, mentioning that we would continue to track for more gains.

. The $10 Calls traded up to a new high of 2.41, and from our observed low of .60 on Thursday, extended  the total move we saw to 302%  The $11 Calls ran to a new high of 1.38, which from our witnessed low of .11 represented a monster two-day swing from Thursday’s low of 1154%


DSW, Inc. DSW – Options Recap

We went very options-heavy in our reports throughout last week, and another idea that bore fruit on Friday was one we formulated on Tuesday morning, with the DSW 09/15 $17.50 & $20 Calls.

In this case, the $17.50‘s were as low as 1.15 after our signal, and closed at 2.72 on Friday, marking a four-session swing of 137% The $20′s ran from .30 to as much as .80, for a 167% move.

There’s still plenty of time before expiration on these contracts, so we won’t rule out seeing further positive activity in the days and weeks ahead.


Amazon, Inc. AMZN

To keep this options train chugging down the tracks, we’re going to highlight a range of contracts in the AMZN chain.

AMZN stock itself has been under consolidation and is presently sitting around an area of previous support. A lot of eyes are on the company as well as its first day as the official owner of Whole Foods brought sweeping price cuts at the high-dollar supermarkets.

We’re going to look to the AMZN 10/06 $965-980 Calls for an extended term idea, which could yield significant gains once a reversal occurs on the chart.



Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. TNDM

We also want to place TNDM on watch for the reasons outlined in the annotated chart below. The stock cracked its 50DMA last week after recently having fallen to new lows, so we want to put in on the radar for a potential recovery play.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TTOO Recap & More

T2 Biosystems, Inc. TTOO – Recap

We tagged TTOO as a bottom play just under a month ago in our report dated July 18th, as the stock was undergoing a lengthy period of consolidation. It subsequently found support at 2.53 shortly thereafter, and since that point in time, it has seen a solid recovery off of those lows.

Yesterday, TTOO reached a new high of 4.07, its best PPS all summer long. It worked out to a very respectable 61% upswing over our observed low, and indicators on the chart suggest there is still room for more rapid short term growth, so we’ll continue to keep an eye on this play moving forward.


 SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) – Options Update

The markets ended up rebounding yesterday, leading us to note our interest in tracking the SPY Weekly $244.50-246 Calls in the event that the premarket trend we were noticing continued into the session. That’s what happened, and as a result our highlighted contracts made some really nice intraday moves.

$244.50 Calls – Range: 1.54-2.53 – Max Gain: 1180%
$245 Calls – Range: 1.18-2.05  – Max Gain: 1280%
$245.50 Calls – Range: .83-1.68 – Max Gain: 1225%
$246 Calls – Range: .54-1.30 – Max Gain: 1864%

The possibility of a sustained rally for the markets will lead us to roll up our potential strike prices in the SPY chain up to the $247 and $247.50 Calls to potentially keep this idea rolling.


Zerez Holdings Corp. ZRZH

We first caught wind of ZRZH last year, and it was good to us back then. We want to revisit the stock once again today for a couple reasons.

Not only is ZRZH in a relatively good place on the chart from which to launch a possible rebound, but yesterday the company presented some impressive quarter-over-quarter revenue growth. For those reasons, we want to place this stock on watch this week, a rebound to its previous area of fierce resistance at a nickel would mean considerable gain opportunities from present pricing.

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Zerez Holdings Corporation, (OTC PINK: ZRZH), DBA Smart Cannabis, http://smartcannabis.com today filed its second quarter 2017 quarterly reports with OTCMARKETS.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom Play, Options & More

Biocept, Inc. BIOC

We took notice of BIOC on our routine morning scan today as a possible bottom play, as the stock tumbled to 8-month lows on Friday.  At the same time, the company released a PR this morning pertaining to the signing of a potentially lucrative, worldwide distribution agreement, a snippet of which we’ve included below.

We think it makes for an interesting confluence of events, and that’s why we’re going to be tracking BIOC closely as we kick off a fresh trading week.

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – Biocept, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOC), a leading commercial provider of liquid biopsy tests designed to provide physicians with clinically actionable information to improve the outcomes of cancer patients, announces that it has signed an exclusive global Distribution Agreement excluding China, for the Company’s proprietary blood collection tubes (BCTs) with VWR International, LLC (>>View Full PR)


National and International Events Affecting Markets

There was a fair bit of hysteria going out over the newsreels last week over a potential nuclear conflict between North Korea and the US, and it led to a tough week for stocks in general. Whether this week plays out as a bear or a bull remains to be seen, but we’ll want to have options ideas lined up for either eventuality.

This morning, we’ve seen some signs of an abatement of those fears as stocks around the globe have perked up, and in the event that a rebound for domestic stocks is also in the cards for this week, we’ll want to signal the range of SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) Weekly $244.50-246 Calls for observation.

However if other outside factors, such as the civil unrest and domestic terrorism that unfolded in Virginia over the weekend serves to hurt US markets further, we may find ourselves more interested in tracking the iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures ETN (VXX) Weekly $12 and 12.50 Calls.
