Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Recap & More

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY)

We were all over the SPY last week, scoring some big chances for profits early on with some calls, and then flipping to the bearish end of things with some puts on Friday, which also happened to work like a charm. We played the SPY like a fiddle, and the potential returns were considerable.

Our targets were the SPY Weekly $263.50-262 Puts, and each of the four contracts contained within that range provided traders with huge gain opportunities, which were as follows:

$263.50 Puts – Range: .75-3.50 - Max Gain: 367%
$263 Puts – Range: .59-3.10 – Max Gain: 425%
$262.50 Puts – Range: .45-3.07 - Max Gain: 582%
$262 Puts – Range: .34-2.16 - Max Gain: 535%



Johnson & Johnson JNJ

We want to place JNJ on longer-term rebound watch today as the stock took an absolute plastering on Friday with roughly a $15 dip. Three separate insiders filed Form-4′s on Friday indicating share purchases at those lows. That is as good an indicator as any that belief is high in JNJ getting back on track in the near future.

We’re going to put the JNJ 01/25 $135-140 Calls on watch in the days and weeks ahead, as a recovery of some degree does not seem far off for JNJ.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WTW Recap & More

Weight Watchers International, Inc. WTW – Recap

To close out the week on Friday, we left off with a bearish idea on Weight Watchers, and with the help of a another down day for the markets, a couple of the plays we were tracking in the range of the WTW Weekly $58.50-56.50 Puts, did quite well for us even as other ideas fell by the wayside. .

WTW opened just under its daily high of 56.10, and fell all the way back to the $48 range. That allowed for some nice gain opportunities in a pair of our designated targets:

$57.50 Puts – Range: 2.66-9.11 – Max Gain: 242%
$57 Puts – Range: 2.54-9.15 - Max Gain: 260%



Thunder Energies Corp. TNRG

It has been quite awhile since we mentioned any penny stocks in our reports, especially when you consider that those were our primary areas of focus many years ago. Lately we have become mainly focused upon big board stocks and options plays, but every now and again a penny will catch our eye.

Such is the case with TNRG, a stock we’re interested in tracking for a couple reasons. Along with a tight share structure, we’ve also observed a recent, significant rise in volume. The company has also just satisfied the conditions on some Convertible Promissory Notes.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DIS, TRXC Recaps & More

 TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We made a good catch when we included TRXC in yesterday morning’s premarket report, after it was reported that the company’s robotic surgery device got the regulatory approval it needed.

The result was a very nice run from a low of  2.15 to 3.05, the highest PPS the stock has seen since the spring of 2016. That works out to an intraday push of 42% and this morning TRXC is edging even higher in before-hours trading, so we’ll want to continue to keep an eye on it moving forward.


Walt Disney Co. DIS

We highlighted some options ideas for Disney yesterday morning, after noticing that it had  a nice bottom setup on the chart, trading near its ten-month lows.

For a near-term idea we signaled the DIS Weekly $96-98 Calls and among those five contracts, three produced opportunities for solid single-session gains.

$97 Calls – Range: 1.15-1.57 – Max Gain: 37%
$97.50 Calls – Range: .81-1.22  – Max Gain: 51%.
$98 Calls – Range: .49-.89 – Max Gain: 82%

We also noticed that the $98.50s had the highest open interest, so we will want to roll up our observed range a little and keep an eye on those for the remainder of the week.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX

We also want to put a few options contracts in the NFLX chain on watch. The stock has been in a general uptrend for nearly all of 2017, with the exception of one month between late July and late August. Currently the stock is approaching extreme overbought levels on the strength index just as it was prior to that downturn.

On the flip side, boosted guidance and a strong earnings call this morning could make things interesting. Due to these opposing factors, we’re going to want to watch some contracts on both sides of the fence, depending on NFLX’s behavior once regular market hours kick in.

If the stock can’t get above $207.50, we’re going to zero in on the NFLX Weekly $207.50 and $205 Puts. Conversely, if it holds above $200 on any pullbacks, we’ll focus on the Weekly $200-205 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INMG Recap & More

Innovativ Media Group, Inc. INMG

On Wednesday, just a day following news that the company had acquired a property in the cannabis space, INMG impressed by running 195% from .0019 to .0056. Participants in our daily live trader’s chat had a chance to get in on those gains, as we were mentioning in Thursday’s premarket report.*

But the party was only just getting started, and Thursday’s session proved to be every bit as exhilarating. INMG traded up from its morning low of .005, and managed to crack through the penny barrier to reach a high of .012 on the day. That was good for another multi-bag intraday move of 140% and extended our total two-session observed range on INMG to a walloping 532%

The move came on more than nine times the 30-day average volume, and the stock held a penny into the close, maintaining well over half of its daily advance, so we’ll be very interested to see how that head of steam transfers to this new trading week after a three-day weekend.

4/20 Cannabis Watchlist

We’re heading into 4/20 week, with the holiday coming up on Thursday. For the uninitiated, 4/20 (“Four-Twenty”) has been a marijuana counter-culture holiday for decades, and in recent years as the legal cannabis space has really taken off, it has been taken to a new level through viral marketing events, festivals, celebrations, and targeted ad campaigns.

We would expect the frequency of press releases (and with them, increased visibility) from companies operating in or around the space to rise over the course of this week. We would also expect subsequent heightened activity in many cannabis stocks. 

In accordance with these expectations, we’ll put the many cannabis stocks we track on a routine basis on even closer watch. Stocks like CBIS, OWCP, RMHB, SGDH, TRTC, and more, will be high on our watchlist this week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NUGT Options Recap & More

Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bull 3X ETF (NUGT)

NUGT has been on a fairly consistent rise for the past few weeks along with gold itself, and we were able to use the continuation of that trend to our extreme advantage yesterday.

We dropped a quick options idea for the NUGT Weekly $9-9.50 Calls into our watchlist, stipulating that we’d need to see a break of the 50DMA. We got what we were looking for, and the potential gains that followed were substantial.

$9 Calls – Range: .56-1.53 – Max Gain: 173%
$9.50 Calls – Range: .30-1.07 – Max Gain: 257%

Chat reminder: Also, we noticed the magnitude of the activity was going to allow for gains to made at higher increments, so we also suggested rolling up to the $10 Calls shortly after the open. Those ended up running 172% from from .25-.68.

We were just mentioning the benefits of our daily traders chats the other day, and here we have a fine example of why reading our premarket reports can be greatly augmented by participating in our in-session chats as well. Again, just send a Skype contact request to ‘stocksumo’ if you wish to join us!  Any of our readers are welcome!


TransEnterix Inc. TRXC – Insider Buying

We noticed a filing for a huge $5.2M insider position increase on TRXC at a price of 1.40, which coincides closely with recent relative lows, and isn’t too far above the stock’s annual low. We’ll be very interested to follow along with this stock after such a vote of confidence from an existing investor.  (>>View Filings)

Added Note: Speaking of insider trading plays, we also wanted to add a quick reminder on the one we submitted yesterday in STON. The stock made modest headway in continuing its established uptrend with a light 8% increase on the day, and will continue to be on our radars moving forward.


Immune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IMNP

Additionally, we have a reminder to put out on IMNP, which we put on bottom-watch in our report dated December 27th. It took roughly a week of sideways trading for the stock to begin to perk its head up, but yesterday it began to gain some ground so we just wanted to remind readers that we still have this one on our viewscreens.
