Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Options & More

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. HPE

There hasn’t been a day in quite some time when we we’ve offered  options trading ideas to our readers and didn’t come out successful. Yesterday was definitely no exception. Our premarket report contained a flag of the HPE Weekly $16.50 & $17 Calls.

In both cases, double bag gains or better could have been achieved, with the $16.50′s making a perfect double as they ran from .55-1.10, and the $17′s pushing the envelope a bit more, rising 186% from .21-.60.


SPDRA S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Idea

With the markets appearing to be in line for another solid push, we’re going to confine our fresh idea this morning to the SPY. We have traditionally had much success with trading options in this particular fund.

Today we’re going to be looking at the SPY Weekly $290-291.50 Calls, to watch into the end of the week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates & More


Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Idea

We ‘d like to signal our interest in tracking some SNAP puts in the wake of a poor earnings report wherein it was revealed that the company’s quarterly nearly tripled over Q2. Conversely, we were also hit with the news that China based Tencent Holdings would be taking up a 12% stake in its parent company.

Despite a mixed bag of news this morning, we’re getting a bearish feeling on SNAP, and would like to track some puts through the rest of the week. We’ve had some pretty good success with options ideas for this chain in the past, and conditions appear favorable to possibly see some nice activity in the SNAP Weekly $15-14 Puts.



Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX – Options Update

Yesterday’s options idea pertained to VRX after a solid earnings report, for which we signaled the VRX Weekly $13-14 Calls.

Fast-acting traders had some nice chances for profits early on in the session as those contracts displayed the following moves inside the first hour of trading.

$13 Calls – Range: .82-1.42 – Max Gain: 65%
$13.50 Calls – Range: .52-1.04 – Max Gain: 100%
$14 Calls – Range: .28-.66 – Max Gain: 136%


Chatroom Call

RLOG came up on a routine scan right before the open yesterday after we published our premarket report, but we did catch it in time in our chatroom.

The stock made a run from .67 low to a high of 1.93 for an impressive 188% move. This is another example of why it’s so important to be a part of our daily traders chats- often we find plays that are alerted in the chatroom after our morning reports are published!
