Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Ideas & More

Options Ideas

Tesla Inc. TSLA- With TSLA recently finding support after a month-long overall downtrend, and its earnings report coming up this afternoon post-market, we’re going to want to signal a few options contracts for observation.

A bullish head start yesterday may help the stock continue to run into earnings, and could turn the TSLA  Weekly $330-337.50 Calls into premium targets as we head into the end of the week.


Allergan plc AGN - Despite posting a Q3 loss, AGN beat expectations, and did see an 11.4% hike in quarter-over-quarter revenues. Combined with the fact that the stock has just come off of a new 52-week low, and it makes us very interested in this as a potential recovery play.

Accordingly, we are going to put the AGN Weekly $175-180 Calls on watch for the remainder of the week, and depending on how the activity shakes out, we may want to look out to next week’s contracts if it appears a more protracted rebound is in the cards. We’ll revisit that possibility later in the week if necessary.

Apptio, Inc. APTI

We also want to provide a quick performance update on APTI, which we included in yesterday’s premarket report.

It wasn’t a blockbuster day by any means, but it did manage to rise from a low of 20.57 to as much as 24.47. That’s a 19% intraday increase, and a very respectable single-session gain for a stock that started out above $20 to begin with. It made the move on more than thirteen times the monthly average volume, so we’ll definitely let this one keep its slot on our watchlists for the time being.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: The Incredible Run of OWCP & More

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

Our primary order of business this morning is to do a nice recap of what is perhaps the most profit-potential-packed pick in the long history of our newsletter’s existence! We’ve had percentage gainers of 5,000, 10,000 with relative regularity- and even the occasional 20,000 percenter- but nothing even approaching the move we’ve witnessed since tagging OWCP as a bottom play this fall, in our premarket report from September 29th.

The climb from the .0036 low we observed that morning would have been difficult to fathom at the time, but over the next four months, it has gone on to impress in a monumental way. Despite slight consolidations along the way, OWCP has persisted through multiple patches of resistance in arriving at yesterday’s new high of 2.10, marking a ridiculous overall run of 57,956%

Considering the fantastic bullish close the stock had yesterday, we wouldn’t even be surprised to see our unreal observed range extended even further over coming sessions.

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. WMT – Options Update

In yesterday’s premarket report, we updated readers on our WMT options idea from January 31st. We were looking for an extended-term rebound when we signaled the WMT 03/03 $68-$69.50 Calls, and that’s exactly what we’ve gotten.

Leading into yesterday’s session we touted the excellent gain opportunities we had seen to that point in our selected contracts, which ranged from 166-246% We also made it a point to caution that with the way the stock was behaving in the premarket, we expected to see those ranges extended in a significant manner.

As you can see from updated figures below, the overall ranges on our observed plays were more than doubled with yesterday’s activity:

$68 Calls – Range: .86-4.20 – Max Gain: 388%
$68.50 Calls – Range: .57-3.75 – Max Gain: 558%
$69 Calls – Range: .48-3.25 – Max Gain: 577%
$69.50 Calls – Range: .41-2.75 – Max Gain: 570%



Garmin Ltd. GRMN – On the heels of it’s impressive earnings beat, we’re going to tag the GRMN 03/17 $52.50-60 Calls for observation this morning.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Ideas, Bottom-Bouncer & More

 New Options Ideas

The Priceline Group, Inc. PCLN- It was just last week that we successfully targeted PCLN Calls in the $1065-1085 area, and already the stock has hurtled its way to its highest PPS levels since September. In this morning’s premarket the stock has traded as high $1225.75.

For a possible day-trade opportunities this week, we’re going to keep an eye on Weekly PCLN Calls in the $1180-1225 range, provided the stock can maintain support at or above $1175 on any pullbacks.

Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals, Inc. TTPH – TTPH is another morning gapper that we’re going to be transfixed upon this morning. In the midst of a ‘Superbug’ outbreak in California which is one of today’s top-reported headlines, TTPH, which is developing an antibiotic to combat these types of drug-resistant pathogens has become the subject of potential buyout rumors.

We’re going to monitor the TTPH $40 Calls for another possible short-term target as we head into the end of this holiday-shortened trading week.

Longer-term Ideas

In addition to the preceding short-term plays, we also have a couple of  ideas for longer-term opportunities with GoPro, Inc. GPRO and Garmin, GRMN. Both stocks have seen significant pullbacks this week, and are showing symptoms of a possible rebound in the premarket with slight gap-ups.

We will want to radar March 20th GPRO $47 and $48 Calls (Closed at 2.50 and 2.08, respectively).

For GRMN we’ll be monitoring the March 20th $52.50 and $55 Calls (Closed at .76 and .30, respectively).

Atheranova, Inc. AHRO

We also want to tag AHRO this morning as a potential bottom-bouncer. The stock recently fell off of a cliff, and yesterday began to rebound off its newly-established 52-week lows.

We always keep our eyes peeled for stocks in this position, as we have used them to our advantage time and time again.

Angie’s List, Inc. ANGI

ANGI was a point of focus on yesterday’s extended watchlist, as well as a topic of discussion in our trading chatroom*. The stock made a big move from 6.45-7.80, a 21% intraday spike.

The accompanying options idea we floated in our chatroom* yesterday were the March $7.50 Calls,. which made a significant move from .25-.85, and will continue to garner our attention moving forward.
