Wrapping Up Another Interesting Trading Week

Jabil, Inc. JBL – Options Recap: 

As we’ve been mentioning recently, we are continuing to fight our way through the heart of a major earnings drought. Case in point- there are ZERO pre or post-market reporters on the calendar for today. Yesterday was was also quite dry with the exception of JBL, for which we formulated an options ideas in our premarket report.

We designated the JBL Weekly $50-55 Calls as our targets of interest, and they exhibited some nice intraday activity; the $55’s in particular. The total ranges and possible gains on those targets were as follows:

JBL Weekly $50-55 Calls
$50: 6.45-8.10 (+26%)
$55: 1.10-3.47 (+215%)


Fresh Options Ideas: 

Yesterday’s post-market earnings releases by companies with at least a billion-dollar market cap are our only source of earnings-related ideas to close out the week today, and the calendar was limited to just two.

We’ll go ahead and set some potential targets in both of those options chains, but be advised that these are weeklies, and trading options on their day of expiration should be undertaken only with experience and extreme caution as premiums will begin to evaporate. Only play with what you can afford to lose under a worst-case scenario!

ADBE Weekly $555-570 Calls
SWBI Weekly $20 Calls


Goff Corp. GOFF – Review:

We began tracking GOFF after putting it on our watchlist on May 13th, and we’ve mentioned it a couple of times since then as well.

The stock has made an absolutely massive run from our observed low subsequent to our report in May, which came in at .033, and culminated in a new high of .2369 yesterday. That represents a monster move of 618% in just a shade over a month’s time!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Ideas & More

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. TEVA

We’re very interested in TEVA as a potential bottom bounce play. The stock registered new 52-week lows midway through last week, and has exhibited a solid level of support. Trending up slightly in the premarket, we’re going to be tracking a pair of June options contracts to coincide with what could easily be a significant rebound.

Our specific targets are going to be the TEVA 06/28 $12.50 & $13 Calls, which could present us with sizable opportunities to profit

Sprint Corp. S

We’re also going to set our sights on a range of Sprint options as the company attempts to gain FCC and DOJ approval on its $26B proposed merger with T-Mobile. The review period ends in June, but we’re more interested in the short term capability of the stock to provide us with quick strike chances. We’re going to radar the S Weekly $7-8 Calls.


Adverum Biotechnologies, Inc. ADVM – Review

A stock we recently began tracking, ADVM has been in a fairly continual uptrend since we signaled it for observation on the morning of April 17th. In the last month, the stock has made considerable bullish strides.

From the low we observed on the day of our initial alert, at 5.44, ADVM has gone on to record a high of 9.17. That comes out to an increase of 69%

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%
