Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PVTL Bottom Play & More

Pivotal Software Inc. PVTL

We’ve been quietly tracking this play for quite some time, and feel it’s just about ready to make a move. As you can see on the included chart, PVTL has sold off after recent earnings, and the stock has found support at a solid double-bottom in the $19-range.

You can also see that PVTL is approaching heavily oversold territory, and the MACD is converging sharply toward a bullish cross, not to mention a sizable gap to the upside. We’re going to want to have a range of options contracts on watch in the days and weeks ahead in the event that the rebound occurs which looks just about due at the present time.

Our targets will be the PVTL 10/19 $19-22 Calls.


Blackberry Ltd. BB

We also want to designate a pair of options contracts for the Blackberry chain this morning on the heels of the company’s Q2 profit beat.

We’ll be looking for a dip-and-rip scenario, which, if it occurs, should produce some significant gain opportunities in the BB Weekly $10 & $10.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMD Review & More

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD

Our first order of business today is going to be to take a look at the incredible year AMD has had. We’ve mentioned it quite a few times along the way, but if we track all the way back to April 26th, we see that we caught this stock at a low of 10.61.

AMD has been an absolute juggernaught all year, and this morning in the premarket trades are going off at 33.25. That’s 213% higher than our observed share price this spring, and AMD shows little sign of slowing its gradual ascent.

In terms of options ideas, we are going to put an observation tag on the AMD Weekly $32-33 Calls.


Adobe Systems, Inc. ADBE

Yesterday morning for a fresh options idea,we stated that if we saw ADBE maintain support at or above 258.49, we were going to be very interested in the ADBE 10/26 $260-265 Calls.

The stock began to make the reversal we expected yesterday, and its activity fueled the first round of gains for our calls, which were as follows:

$260 Calls– Range: 8.05-10.50 – Max Gain: 30%
$262.50 Calls – Range: 7.25-8.50 – Max Gain: 17%
$265 Calls – Range: 4.85-7.85 – Max Gain: 62%

We would not be at all surprised to have to swing back around to report much larger gains down the road on these ideas, but yesterday’s activity was a solid start.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Winners

Options Winners

Our acumen in identifying successful short-to-mid-term options plays has been at  a high level for years now, and this week has been no different than those that came before it.

It was on Tuesday morning that our report contained a pair of ideas relating to the TLRY and TSLA chains. With the help of a solid Wednesday session, all contracts involved have produced notable gain opportunities:

TLRY 09/21 $91-93 Calls
$91 Calls – Range: 6.43-16.00 – Max Gain: 149%
$92 Calls – Range: 5.51-15.40 – Max Gain: 179%
$93 Calls – Range: 5.23-15.48 – Max Gain: 196%

TSLA 10/06 $285-290 Calls
$285 Calls – Range: 12.26-21.17 – Max Gain: 73%
$287.50 Calls – Range: 12.02-19.39 – Max Gain: 61%
$290 Calls – Range: 10.50-18.92 – Max Gain: 80%

Additionally, we signaled the BHC Weekly $21-22.50 Calls in yesterday morning’s report, and the $22′s and the $22.50′s yielded the most positive single-session results. The $22′s ran from .76-2.00 for a gain of 163% while the $22.50′s traded up from a low of .40 to hit 1.19, which worked out to a move of 198%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HOME Recap & More

At Home Group, Inc. HOME 

On Friday morning, we closed out our premarket report with a fresh options trading idea for the HOME options chain, with the HOME 04/20 $30 Calls.

The idea paid instant dividends for our readers and ourselves as those calls traded in a very solid range from 1.20-3.75 on the day, giving us the chance at intraday gains of up to 213% There’s obviously plenty of time to continue tracking this play, but as it is, we’re extrmely pleased with its single session performance on Friday, which registered as the sixth biggest gainer on the NASDAQ.



Aytu BioScience, Inc. AYTU

Another target we selected last week for a bottom-watch play after noticing the chart setup and a string of insider buys, was AYTU. While it didn’t exactly blast off yet, we wanted to go over the move it did make, and reiterate our interest in tracking this play as we kick off this short trading week.

Subsequent to our alert, the stock traded in a range from .4118 to .51, a modest 24% rise, and still has tons of room to run. In fact, the company will need to promptly reach and maintain a 1.00 PPS or risk having NASDAQ forcibly de-list its stock.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TEUM Recap & More

Pareteum Corp. TEUM
-
Just yesterday, we were commenting on the large number of stocks we’ve recently tracked for large gains despite already trading at more than a dollar per share. We’ve been seeing OTC-type gains from NYSE and NASDAQ plays, and TEUM is another good example of this.

The day after our mention of TEUM in our morning report from February 8th, we observed a low of 1.72 in TEUM, and it hasn’t looked back since. Yesterday, the stock reached a new high of 3.59, representing a six-week double-bag swing of 108%


Geron Corp. GERN

GERN, another of our calls to make a solid six week run, added another new high yesterday, just after our morning report in which we outlined its prior performance. The stock had already showed us a move from 2.025-5.00 (+147%).

Yesterday’s trading range took it from a low of 5.08 to a new high of 6.68. That works out to an intraday pop of 31% and increases our total observed range to an impressive 230%



Nike Inc. NKE – Fresh Options Idea

Nike posted a beat on earning sales and revs yesterday post-market, and is up in early trading today, so we’re definitely going to want to put a range of calls on watch as we close out another trading week.

We’ll be tracking the NKE Weekly $66.50-68 Calls, but remember, NEVER attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.
