Blue Horseshoe Stocks: The Week in Review & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Recap

Our idea in weekly SPY calls has repeatedly produced this week, continuing the trend from Wednesday with a really nice session yesterday. Each of the three contracts in the our highlighted range of SPY Weekly $204-206 Calls pushed the upper limits and soared to new highs as markets rallied for the third straight day.

On the table below, we’ve included both yesterday’s daily gains, as well as the total increase off of our observed lows from Wednesday (1.45, .87 and .47 respectively):

$204 Calls – Range: 2.59-5.46 – Intraday Gain: 111% – Overall Move: 277%
$205 Calls – Range: 1.68-4.51 – Intraday Gain: 168% – Overall Move: 418%
$206 Calls – Range: .83-3.58 – Intraday Gain: 331% – Overall Move: 662%


Mobileye N.V. (MBLY) - Update

We also had a fresh idea in yesterday’s report, namely the MBLY Weekly $44.50-46.50 Calls. While we didn’t see a full sweep of our observed range in terms of big potential profits, three out of the five sets of contracts recorded sizable intra-session pops, including a monstrous octuple-bagger in the 46′s!

$45 Calls – Range: 1.80-2.50 – Max Gain: 144%
$46 Calls – Range: .31-3.00 – Max Gain: 868%
$46.50 Calls – Range: .70-1.50 – Max Gain: 44%


Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Fresh Options Idea

We’ll go ahead and close out what has been a fruitful trading week for options with one final idea. We’re going to zero in on NFLX Weekly $93.50-95.50 Calls.  We’ll need to see NFLX hold above its premarket low of 93.49 on any pullbacks for our interest in these contracts to remain in force, and if this week’s market-wide recovery trend perpetuates, it shouldn’t have much trouble doing so.

*As usual, we’ll warn our less-seasoned readers that messing with weekly options contracts on a Friday is an inherently risky proposition for expert traders only!


Five Star Quality Care, Inc. FVE

We also want to provide a quick update on a stock we tagged for observation in yesterday’s watchlist. While the intraday gains amounted to a modest 14%, we’re going to be keeping an eye peeled for further activity as we head into the long holiday weekend.

If the stock can maintain support above the current 50DMA of 2.13 on any forthcoming consolidations, it will continue to hold our interest.


Bottom Watchlist:

The following will be on our radars as possible bottom-plays: Sipp Industries, Inc. SIPC  &  Guided Therapeutics, Inc. GTHP

TPIV, SFEG, AAU, WING, GFI

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HERO, Options Update & More

Hercules Offshore, Inc. HERO

We had HERO figured for a bottom-watch play, and began mentioning the stock a couple of weeks ago for the first time since last summer. After seeing a significant gap-down to start the week, the stock has responded by posting a couple green candles on the chart.

HERO is trending off of a multiple bottom, and is now going to be on our list as a potential momentum play. From the included chart below you can plainly see the kind of volatile swings the stock is capable of making. We’ll be on the lookout for it to first fill in that gap, followed by a breach of the 200DMA. Should that occur, we could see another series of gains resembling those from February and March.


Computer Sciences Corp. CSC – Options Update

Next we want to update our readers on an extended-term options idea we submitted last Wednesday. Despite already seeing significant intraweek moves from contracts within our highlighted range of CSC 06/17 $44-48 Calls, yesterday brought along further opportunities. The gains perhaps weren’t of the magnitude that we’re accustomed to seeing in many of our options plays, but they were solid chances for profits nonetheless:

$45 Calls – Range: 3.20-4.20 – Max Gain: 31%
$47 Calls – Range: 1.65-2.80 – Max Gain: 70%
$48 Calls – Range: 1.25-2.20 – Max Gain: 76%


CafePress, Inc. PRSS

Lastly, another quick idea to add to the mix in PRSS. Aside from the chart being technically attractive, trading near relative lows at a double-bottom, we’re also interested in PRSS for the Form-4 that was filed last week showing a major investor picking up a sizable chunk to add to his position (>>View Filing). We’re going to add this to our own working watchlist and observe it closely in sessions to come.

TDCP, AJBI, GTHP, GOVX, IMUC

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KGNX, HERO Recaps & More

KollagenX Corp. KGNX

We tagged KGNX in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and were met with a fantastic intraday gain opportunity from this subpenny runner that has brought us good chances to gain in the past. (We’d initially tagged it coming off of its 52-week lows in March)

Yesterday we observed a low of .00189 in the stock before it took off, running hard and reaching a high of .0037 shortly before 1PM. That marked an upswing of 96% on close to nine times the monthly average trading volume, and KGNX closed with enough strength (.003) to qualify it for further observation as a possible momentum play.


Hercules Offshore, Inc. HERO

Speaking of momentum, that was what led us to feature HERO in yesterday’s report. The stock had already strung together three consecutive sessions of building higher lows, and it continued that trend for us with a solid performance on the day.

HERO traded in a range from 1.52-1.99, a respectable rise of 31% and it did so on a little over three times the 3-month average volume. This morning we’re seeing a slight gap-up in HERO to a premarket high of 2.15, which extends our observed range to an overnight gain of 42% We’ll keep tracking this one for a potential continuation of momentum as well.


Fresh Options Idea 

Target Corp. TGT – Target is tumbling in the premarket this morning on disappointing sales and Q2 guidance, leading us to submit a bearish idea for the stock’s options chain. We’re going to put TGT Weekly $69-65 Puts on our short-term radars today. We’ll remain interested in these contracts

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Movers, New Ideas & More

Friday’s Notable Moves

Each of the following plays exhibited appreciable upswings on Friday afternoon after having appeared in our reports for the day and days prior. We’ll have each of these stocks on watch for the possibility of continued momentum this morning:

Nate’s Food Co. NHMD

NHMD covered the most ground as it traded in a range from .0019-.0035 on Friday, running 84% intraday and closing at the high of day on volume to the tune of well over five times its 3-month average. We’ll certainly have an eye out for further activity as we open things up on this holiday-shortened trading week.

Guided Therapeutics, Inc. GTHP

We latched onto GTHP early last week and would see a nice little two-day run from the stock to finish it out. Our observed low came on Thursday at .0102, which gave way to a subsequent high of .015 on Friday, marking an overnight increase of 47%

Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. SRCO

SRCO was a steady climber on Friday which traversed its way from .0025 to .0031 over the course of the day, which represents a modest yet notable 24% rise. It too qualifies for sustained monitoring as a possible momentum play, having closed at its high mark for the session.


ProGreen Properties, Inc. PGEI 

We want to put PGEI on our radars this morning as well, not only for the momentous session it had on Friday, but also due to the content of the PR released by the company early this morning.

Following up from a release they put out in January, the company announced the completion of a joint venture agreement that puts them on track to develop a 300-acre property of proposed farmland in Baja California, Mexico in time for this year’s growing season. We’ll be interested to follow along for further updates on that project as well as watch the chart for short-term opportunities.


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Idea

On Friday the markets enjoyed the biggest single-session rally since 2009. With oil rebounding as well, and the S&P having demonstrated a definitive reversal over the past couple of sessions, we’ll want to start the week off  monitoring some SPY Options. Our target area is going to be the SPY Weekly $188-191 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Yesterday’s Top Movers & More

Yesterday’s Top Movers

Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK

Yesterday’s session brought a couple of chances for nice intraday gains from stocks placed on our premarket watchlist, starting with AGTK. We’ve had this one on our radar in the past, and turning our attention back to it yesterday ended up being a great idea.

Starting out from its opening price of .003, AGTK made a nice, round, 100% rip up to the high of day at .006 which occurred around lunchtime. The stock ended up receding back to a new daily low into the close, so we’ll definitely continue to monitor it for some potential bounceplay action.
__________

Guided Therapeutics, Inc. GTHP

Also among the most solid plays from yesterday’s report was GTHP, which managed a respectable intraday swing of 32% on roughly three times the monthly average trading volume as it ran from .0128-.0169. That also represented a bullish breach of the 50DMA. Couple that with the expansion of the LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan, revenues from which the company expects to fall into the $3-5M range for 2016, and we’ll be keeping GTHP on an extended-term watch.
__________

Pocket Games, Inc. PKGM

We’d like to provide an update on a play that we signaled for observation the Friday before last,  as its progress over the last half-dozen sessions has been quite notable. We caught PKGM trading at a low of .0031 subsequent to our alert on 01/29, and the stock has continually pushed to new highs, culminating in a .013 high-of-day yesterday.  That amounts to a 319% upswing in a relatively short period of time, so we’ll definitely keep PKGM in our sights moving forward.


Facebook, Inc. FB – Continued Options Success

Our continued tracking of  FB Feb 19th $109-105 Puts which we initially signaled in Thursday morning’s report continued to pay dividends in each of the ensuing sessions, and yesterday was no exception. Our bearish feelings on FB continued to ring true, as the gap we highlighted on the chart down into the $97-range was filled. As a result, we witnessed new highs on each of our observed contracts.

$109 Calls
– Trading Range: 1.98-11.50 – Max Gain: 481%
$108 Calls – Trading Range: 1.67-10.35 – Max Gain: 520%
$107 Calls – Trading Range: 1.27-9.48 – Max Gain: 646%
$106 Calls – Trading Range: .99-8.66 – Max Gain: 775%
$105 Calls – Trading Range: .91-7.70 – Max Gain: 746%
