Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Options Wins

Options Reviews

General Mills, Inc. GIS – We were looking at the General Mills chain beginning
on Wednesday morning, when we designated the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls as targets of interest for the week. We got some very nice profit opportunities out of that set, with plenty of time for the possibility to realize further gains.  The $47.50 Calls rose from a low of 1.40-3.55, an upswing of 154% The $50′s traded in a range from .27-1.47, which works out to a huge jump of 444%

Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI  – On Thursday morning, we added the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls to our pool of ideas, and those really made a splash as well. In the two session span following our alert, we witnessed a move up from a low of 1.15 to a high of 4.30. That represents a rapid increase of 274%
_____

Revlon, Inc. REV - Finally, on Friday, we continued our streak of new ideas with an extended-term idea on Revlon. A pair of big insider buys was what led us to place these on watch. We’ll continue to track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls. For Friday, they each managed modest increases, with the $22.50′s running from 2.55-2.90 (+14%) and the $25′s going from 1.25-2.00 (+60%). These will be on our radar for quite some time, but got off to a nice start.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: REV Form-4 Alert

General Mills, Inc. GIS

Tracking back to an idea we formulated on Wednesday morning, the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls, we saw some really nice activity in those contracts thanks to a bullish session for the markets on the whole.

Both of our designated targets managed to post multi-bag gains. The $47.50 Calls made a nice swing from 1.40-2.85, representing a gain of 104% The $50′s fared even better, trading in a range from .27-.94, an increase of 248%


Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI

For a fresh idea yesterday, we went with the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls and saw a solid performance there as well. This set of contracts turned up with an even double-bagger as they ran from a low of 1.15, and reached a 3.30 high.

As is the case with many of the plays we selected this week, there’s still plenty of time remaining until expiration, so the possibility of seeing further useful activity down the line is not out of the question.


Revlon, Inc. REV – Form-4 Alert

Speaking of plenty of time, we are going to go farther out with this next fresh idea than we are typically accustomed to going. This idea could theoretically be in play for the next 5 months. We’ll track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls.

This is after noticing the stock recovering from a recent severe beating, in unison with Form-4 filings indicating the purchase of over $7M in stock by a REV insider on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, as the stock was flagging heavily.

Options Updates

The Michaels Companies, Inc. MIK – One of our fresh ideas for yesterday morning’s premarket report was a post-earnings target of the MIK 04/18 $12.50 Calls combined with a solid technical setup as a bottom-bounce play.

The stock turned in a very solid performance on the day, coming up just shy of its 50DMA, and that produced a significant gain opportunity for the contract set we designated. The $12.50 Calls traded up of a low of .60, and hit 1.35, marking an intraday run of 125% We’ll want to continue to reserve a spot on our radar for this play, and watch for the stock to continue to establish higher lows and higher highs off of its recent 52-week lows.
____

StoneCo Inc STNE - We also had the STNE 04/18 $37.50 & $39 Calls highlighted in yesterday’s report, and while we didn’t see quite the same intensity of activity as the above-mentioned play, that pair of contracts did get off to a good start, with nearly a full month remaining until expiration.

The $37.50′s traded in a range from 4.60-6.20 for a 35% move, and the $39′s went from 4.20-5.00 (+19%). We’ll continue tracking these as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CELZ Recap & More

Creative Medical Technology Holdings, Inc. CELZ

We mentioned CELZ at the outset of this week, in our report from Monday morning, and we wanted to return today to recap the stock’s excellent performance since then. On Monday a low of .0283 was recorded, and after a few bullish sessions it attained a new high of .0575 yesterday.

That worked out to a three-day increase of 103% on steadily rising volume, and with the PPS now currently in blue skies, we’re going to be very interested to continue monitoring the activity in CELZ as we head into week’s end.


General Mills, Inc. GIS

We would also like to recap the performance of the options ideas we submitted for General Mills yesterday. The pair of contracts we highlighted, the GIS Weekly $45 & $47.50 Calls, each managed to produce notable intraday moves.

The $45 Calls ran from a low of 1.22 to as much as 2.39 for a gain of 96% The $47.50′s fared slightly better, trading up from a low of .34 to .78; a 129% single-session rip.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Stocks & Options Movers

General Mills, Inc. GIS – Options Idea

As our regular readers are perfectly aware, we never stop looking for earnings related options plays. Even now, amid a relative lull in quarterly reports, we’re seeing an interesting possibility with General Mills.

After its Q4 earnings report this morning, wherein a solid beat on profits was achieved, the stock is up to the tune of 2% in the premarket. There is also a large gap on the chart to the $50-area. In this situation, we’re interested in tracking the GIS Weekly $45 & $47.50 Calls for the remainder of the week.


TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We wanted to come back to comment on TRXC this morning as well. We tagged this stock for observation just a shade over a month ago on May 23rd, and since that time, the stock has enjoyed a very solid uptrend which has led to new highs this week.

On the day of our initial alert on TRXC, we had observed a low of 2.82, and the srtock never fell below that point. Yesterday’s new high came in at 5.70, marking an upswing of 102% in a matter of four and-a-half weeks!



Kopin Corp. KOPN

For something new to put on our radars this morning we also want to make mention of KOPN. As you can on the annotated chart below, at the present time, KOPN is displaying a strong multiple bottom formation, in addition to having just reached heavily oversold territory.

We are going to place KOPN on watch in the days ans perhaps weeks ahead and will be interested to see how it behaves with this cherry of a technical setup.
