Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Ideas & More


As you are probably aware the SPY (the markets as a whole) had been on a historic run starting in early 2016 which persisted through January of this year, when we experienced some of the biggest selloffs in market history. The SPY began to rebound earlier this month, and was making a pretty good run at a recovery until yesterday brought another significant backslide.

Despite yesterday’s hiccup, the SPY has been in a general uptrend for the last couple of weeks, and today, it looks like we could resume the path toward ascension. We’ll be ;looking for the markets to go green today, which could produce some notable opportunities in the SPY 02/28 $275-276 Calls*.

*Please note that these contracts expire today, thus the associated risk is that of trading weekly options on a Friday. It should never be attempted unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.

The TJX Companies, inc. TJX

TJX is exhibiting a considerable surge in premarket trading today. Despite missing EPS estimates in their Q4 earnings call, the stock is gapping up to the tune of 8% this morning.

When we see a monster gapper like this, we generally look to signal a range of options calls that will come into play in a dip-and-rip scenario, which are quite common in instances such as these. We will be tracking the TJX 03/16 $80-85 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPU Continues Epic Run & More

SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU

Since we tagged SPU in our morning report the Friday before last, the stock has done nothing but break into blue skies. The first day we caught it at a low of 4.00 and its performance since has been nothing short of incredible, with Friday being the fifth consecutive session it recorded higher lows and higher highs.

On Friday, we were remarking about just that, and mentioned that based on premarket activity, we thought SPU could be in line for another solid session despite having reached overbought status.

Our instincts proved reliable, as SPU once set a new high for us, running  24% intraday from 11.54 to 14.29, before closing with strength at 14.25. The new high represented an total increase of 257% over our observed low from just a week earlier! Congrats to anyone who was along for this epic ride!

QUALCOMM, Inc. QCOM – We’ve also got some updated figures on the QCOM Calls we began tracking on Thursday. The QCOM Weekly $58-61 Calls, despite having already brought us chances for gains ranging from 79% up to 575% that day, still produced further opportunities on Friday.

Astonishingly, some of the single-session gains we observed actually made Thursday’s opportunities seem small by comparison!

$58 Calls – Range: 2.10-3.14 – Max Gain: 49%
$58.50 Calls – Range: 1.49-2.63 – Max Gain: 97%
$59 Calls – Range: 1.03-2.16 – Max Gain: 77%
$59.50 Calls – Range: .53-1.60 – Max Gain: 202%
$60 Calls – Range: .15-1.18 – Max Gain: 687%
$60.50 Calls – Range: .05-.56 – Max Gain: 1020%
$61 Calls – Range: .01-.21 – Max Gain: 2000%

Universal Apparel & Textile Co. DKGR

DKGR was an inclusion in Friday’s watchlist, and it saw a modest yet solid intraday upswing. It ran from a low of .036 to .048 for a gain of 33% which came on slightly over twice the average monthly trading volume.

We’ll keep an eye skinned for further activity as the stock maintained more than half its daily advance into the close at .045.

Golden Cross Watch:

We are going to be monitoring both  Anavex, Inc. AVXL and Kopin Corp. KOPN in sessions to come, as both chart appear to be working toward the possibility of a Golden Cross.
