Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PEP Surges & More

PepsiCo, Inc. PEP

Pepsi had a solid across the board beat following its premarket earnings release yesterday, and we seized opportunity to include the  PEP Weekly $124-125 Calls in our morning report.

A five-dollar intraday run by the stock allowed for some very nice opportunities to profit in our pair of targets. The $124 Calls ran from .72-3.40 for a big 372% rip, while the $125′s traded from .32 to 2.45; a gain of 666%


Verb Technology, Inc. VERB

This stock is a newcomer to the NASDAQ, having only recently uplisted from the OTCQB, which has been the subject of a selloff over the past six weeks. That was kicked into another gear earlier this month when the company announced that its move to the NASDAQ would be accompanied by a $20M offering at roughly half the market price at the time.

Now that it has fallen well below the offering price, and indicators are suggesting a rebound may be in order, we are going to flag this play for observation in the days and weeks ahead.

Fresh Options Ideas – In addition to continuing to keep an eye on the previously mentioned plays, we will also add to the pool with another couple of ideas today. In these cases we are going to go bearish.

Domino’s whiffed on earnings and revenue in its premarket release today, while same-store sales increased only slightly. Meanwhile, the high profile injury to Duke basketball player Zion Williamson last night caused by a Nike shoe malfunction, has the potential to have a deleterious effect on Nike’s stock in the near term.

Domino’s Pizza Inc. DPZ Weekly $270-260 Puts
Nike, Inc. NKE 03/15 $84-83.50 Puts

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BLNK, Bottom-Play & More

Blink Charging Co. BLNK

We signaled our interest in BLNK in yesterday morning’s premarket report via the Extended Watchlist, and we’re happy to report on what was a very productive first day of observation.

From a low of 4.34, BLNK made a highly respectable intraday run to 6.34, marking an intraday push of 46% Prior to Monday’s session, wherein the stock picked up in a big way, it had been trading sideways for quite some time. We will be interested in monitoring this play for the possibility of a more sustained uptrend in the days ahead.


Gogo. Inc. GOGO

We want to also bring some attention to the massive selloff which has occurred over the past three trading days. After trading for nearly $10/share, a disappointing earnings release and subsequent Moody’s downgrade has precipitated close to a 50% drop, leaving GOGO trading at just above $5.

We’re going to want to put this one on intensive bottom-watch, as we prepare for possible course correction leading to a bounce play opportunity.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JCP Options Recap & More

JC Penney Co. Inc. JCP – Options Update

On Friday morning, we offered up a fresh options trading idea for JCP to track in the wake of an earnings beat for the retailer. The specific targets we selected were the JCP 08/19 $9.50-10.50 Calls and after the excellent intraday move from JCP itself (9.70-10.72) each of those sets of contracts yielded the chance at some big-time single-session gains.

The total possible profits for on the day for each were as follows:

$9.50 Calls – Range:  .44-1.16 – Max Gain: 164%
$10 Calls – Range: .16-.79 – Max Gain: 394%
$10.50 Calls – Range: 1.23-2.61 – Max Gain: 640%

With the expiration on these contracts set for Friday, we’ll have the remainder of the week to continue observing these plays if the activity in JCP stock allows.


El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. ECPN

We also want to provide an update on the performance of another idea we submitted to our readers last week,. We tagged ECPN for observation in Wednesday morning’s premarket report, and the stock spent the next three sessions trending up.

The low we witnessed on Wednesday came in at .1222 and that eventually gave rise to a new high of .1989 on Friday afternoon, marking a solid three-day swing of 63%  It also managed to close quite near its high-of-day, so we’ll be interested to continue following its progress as we kick off a new trading week.

It’s also worth it to mention that at present, ECPN is receiving a rare 100% ‘Buy’ Rating across the board for short, medium, and long term over at BARCHART.COM.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EYES, BIOC Recaps, RSHCQ & More

Biocept, Inc. BIOC

BIOC continued to roll for the third straight day yesterday since we tagged the play in Monday’s extended watchlist. We witnessed a trading ramnge from 3.90-4.91, which marked an intraday move of 26% on nearly 12x its monthly average volume.

Calculated from the low of 1.71 which we observed on Monday, yesterday’s high represented an overall increase of 187% in a span of just three sessions.


Second Sight Medical Products, Inc.  EYES

We added EYES into the mix in Tuesday’s report, and it too continued to trend up yesterday. The stock traded in a daily range from 11.25 to 14.75, a healthy 31% intraday run.

From our observed low of 9.55 on Tuesday, yesterday’s high was equal to a 54% session-over-session move.


RadioShack Corp. RSHCQ

We want to update our readers on RadioShack today, which despite its ongoing bankruptcy proceedings, has been a winning selection for us this year. We first jumped on it in our report published on the morning of February 9th, whereupon we witnessed a low of .1251 and on Tuesday, the stock hit .37, which comes out to a twelve-session increase of 196%

Yesterday we received word of the approval from a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge to auction off roughly 2,000 RadioShack stores, with an initial bid of $200M having been entered by the Standard General hedge fund.

Lawyers for RadioShack claim that the company has received bids on the leases of more than 200 of the 1,100 locations slated for immediate shutdown, including interest from a unit of GameStop Corp. >> View Article

We’ll be interested to monitoring RSHCQ as events continue to unfold in coming weeks.


Yesterday’s Extended Watchlist Movers 

We also had a number of plays from yesterday’s extended watchlist make notable moves:

Legend Oil & Gas, Ltd. LOGL enjoyed an early pop, running straight out of the gate from a low of .0038 to as high as .0049; good enough for a quick intraday scalp of up to 29%

BenefitFocus, Inc. BNFT produced a substantial spike for a stock trading in its price range, rising steadily from its low 32.15 to hit 37.94, a gain of 18%

SFX Entertainment, Inc. SFXE also recorded a modest intraday increase of 14% as it traded in a range from 4.36 to 4.95. It’s worth mentioning that while the CEO of SFXE is attempting to take the company private, the board has come under investigation regarding the equitability of the proposed terms of that deal. Anyone considering SFXE should make themselves fully aware of that situation as it unfolds. >>> GO TO PR
