Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VZ Update & More

My Size, Inc. MYSZ

We had MYSZ in our extended watchlist last monday, and the stock mainly traded sideways for the ensuing few sessions. We re-tagged it yesterday after noticing that the party had finally started, and the result was a very nice trading range on the stock.

From a low of .66 earlier this week, MYSZ reached a high of 1.28 during yesterday’s session, representing a move of 94% over just a short time span. The stock also traded record volume yesterday, se we’ll be sure to keep an eye peeled as we finish out this trading week.



Verizon, Inc. VZ

We’ve had a ton of success stories on the options front recently, and VZ has quickly grown into one of the top performers of the bunch. When we signaled a range of contracts to observe in the VZ chain on November 17th, the VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls,  the stock itself traded for as little as 44.62. After a nearly continual bullish streak for the past couple of weeks, the stock has gone on to hit a high of  51.09.

That move has of course rocketed our selected contracts to astronomical highs. When we last updated their progress on Wednesday morning, they had offered gains ranging from 240-575% but thanks to two more solid sessions, those figures have been extended considerably.

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls
$45 Calls – Range: 1.08 -6.05 – Max Gain: 460%
$46 Calls – Range: .59-5.03 – Max Gain: 753%
$47 Calls – Range: .39-4.00 – Max Gain: 926%
$48 Calls – Range: .23-3.18 – Max Gain: 1283%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Movers & More

Options Review

We absolutely crushed it on the options front over the past few weeks, and the fresh ideas we floated in our premarket report on Friday morning were no exception. We signaled our interest in tracking a broad range of contracts in both the Foot Locker and Verizon chains, and most of those ideas were successful in providing traders with a chance at sizable single session gains.

Foot Locker, Inc. FL Weekly $38-42 Calls
$38 Calls –
Range: 1.17-2.98 – Max Gain: 155%
$39 Calls – Range: .45-1.94 – Max Gain: 331%
$40 Calls – Range: .20-1.00 – Max Gain: 400%

The $41 and $42 Calls ended up being too far out of the money to see any notable activity, but the contracts that did move, did so very nicely.
_______

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls
$45 Calls – Range: 1.08 -1.66 – Max Gain: 54%
$46 Calls – Range: .59-1.10 – Max Gain: 86%
$47 Calls – Range: .39-.67 – Max Gain: 72%
$48 Calls – Range: .23-.42 – Max Gain: 83%

In the case of Verizon, it appears the stock is getting a push from an analyst upgrade, news of special holiday deals the company is offering, and a great chart setup even before last week’s earnings beat. We seem to have come along at an opportune time, and could very well see further gains in these contracts. We’ll definitely continue to track these ideas.


Aurora Cannabis, Inc. ACBFF

Aurora was among the many cannabis stocks we highlighted a couple of weeks ago in our Cannabis Commentary report,. and between that week, and last week, the stock made a very nice run. It traded up from a low of 2.777 to a high of 5.45; a move of 96%

That was followed by a consolidation, and this week were going to want to watch out for ACBFF to find support and potentially make another run at its previous resistance point. The company also reported a possible takeover of another firm this morning, so we’re really going to keep paying close attention to Aurora this week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Ideas & More

Harley Davidson, Inc. HOG – Options

We were passively observing HOG last week as the stock was coming off its newly registered annual low (46.00), and we want to kick off this trading week by entering a potential options idea into the log. The stock is is extreme oversold territory, and we feel it’s just a matter of time before a more convincing rebound occurs.

That’s why we want to wait in the wings and observe the HOG 09/01 $49-51 Calls, which could stand to make some very nice moves if the stock can regain some of its recently lost ground over the course of the next few weeks.


Pandora Media, Inc. P – Options

Without a heck of a lot happening on the stocks front, being the dog days of summer, we see better chances for good opportunities with options at the moment. Pandora is another idea we want to talk about this morning,

It has been doing quite well over the past several weeks, since touching a low of 6.76 midway through last month. It approached the ten dollar mark last week before peeling back slightly, but this morning in the premarket, we’re seeing trades in the $10-range so we want to be ready with an options idea on the chance that a more significant breakout could occur. We’ll be tracking the P Weekly $9.50-11 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VSTM, KTOV Recaps & More

Verastem, Inc. VSTM

With impressive new highs being printed yesterday we thought it was a good time to swing back around and recap the recent progress of a stock we’ve been tracking since early this spring. A quick look at the VSTM tag in our archives reveals that we began tracking this play with a mention in our premarket report on March 24th at which time the stock saw a low of 1.59 and never went any lower. That was followed by another reminder just a few weeks ago when the stock was trading in the 2.10′s.

Despite the usual fluctuations, the stock has been in an ascending wedge pattern on the chart from our initial highlight, generally trading in an upward direction and yesterday, hit new highs of 3.75. From our observed low of 1.59 that works out to a total increase of 142%  For those who may have only caught the most recent mention, gains of up to 95% were still attainable as of yesterday’s new high.



Kitov Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. KTOV

We included KTOV in yesterday morning’s premarket report after picking it up on our routine morning scan. The stock responded with a very nice daily performance.

From a low of 1.80 it ripped 100% to 2.70 for a perfect double-bagger, and it did so on extreme high volume on the order of 155X the monthly average. With that kind of price action and liquidity, we’ll be certain to keep close tabs on KTOV as we close out this holiday-shortened week.


ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (SVXY) – Options Idea

After some positive jobs numbers went out this morning, we want to signal a range of options in the SVXY, which is one of the funds we use as a market analog. A bullish session for the markets as a whole could spell some nice gain opportunities in the SVXY Weekly $152-154 Calls*.

*We don’t include mentions of weekly options contracts on a Friday without explicitly warning our readers every time. Trading weekly options at the end of the week is a highly risky proposition that should never be attempted by beginning or novice traders!

Best Buy Co. Inc. BBY

Our primary area of focus in terms of fresh picks in yesterday’s premarket report was in post-earnings options ideas, and essentially everything worked out in our favor, beginning with our ideas for the Best Buy chain, which were the BBY Weekly $55-58 Calls.

All seven sets of contracts in our highlighted range gave traders a chance at HUGE multi-bag gains on the day ranging from a triple all the way to a TWELVE-bagger! 

$55 Calls
– Range: 1.60-6.90 – Max Gain: 341%
$55.50 Calls – Range: 1.12-6.19 – Max Gain: 453%
$56 Calls – Range: 1.00-5.80 – Max Gain: 480%
$56.50 Calls – Range: .61-5.21 – Max Gain: 754%
$57 Calls – Range: .50-4.90 – Max Gain: 880%
$57.50 Calls – Range: .35-4.12 – Max Gain: 1077%
$58 Calls – Range: .29-3.97 – Max Gain: 1269%


Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF

Our ANF calls didn’t disappoint either, despite the fact that Abercrombie’s was a much more mixed earnings release.  We said we’d be looking at the ANF Weekly $13 & $13.50 Calls, and saw some solid moves out of both.

The $13 Calls ran from .63 to 1.05 for an intraday push of 67% while the $13.50′s traded in a range from .35-.50, posting an intraday pop of 43%

Based on the present look of the ANF chart, we’ll still want to track these plays heading into the long weekend, but be forewarned, dealing with weekly options contracts on a Friday is for expert traders ONLY!

Big Lots, Inc. BIG – Fresh Idea

We’ve had so much options trading success this earnings season, there’s no reason not to add in a couple more fresh ideas before we break for the holiday weekend. 

Big Lots beat on profits and raised guidance in its premarket release today. With no weekly contracts to look at, we’ll put the BIG 06/16 $55 & 57.50 Calls on watch in the weeks ahead.

_____

ULTA Beauty, Inc. ULTA - This play is gapping up hard after its own earnings beat yesterday. We’ll want to keep an eye on the ULTA Weekly $302.50-310 Calls (Again, to be considered by expert traders only)



Coin Citadel CCTL

We offered up a few bitcoin related stocks to watch yesterday in light of the hysteria over bitcoin reaching all-time highs, and the one that outperformed the rest turned out to be CCTL.

Its volatile swings provided solid chances in both the morning and afternoon. First it ran from .0004 to .0007 (+75%), followed by a pullback to .0003 and subsequent 100% run-back to .0006.
