Then yesterday, we followed up with another set of ideas based on the performance of the stock, signaling the AAPL Weekly $172.50 & $175 Calls. We’re happy to report that all four of the ideas we put forth for the Apple options chain have yielded excellent chances for quick strike profits.

Fresh Idea: TSLA Weekly $285-277.50 Puts


Beyond Commerce, Inc. BYOC

We like the setup of the current chart on BYOC, so we wanted to include this one as well. Its setup is currently sporting several key indicators that we always look for, and have also pointed out on the chart below.

We’ll put the stock on watch in coming sessions; with a break past the current 50DMA of .10, things could get interesting. We noted the prior resistance around .16, which would represent a nice gain from current levels if the stock were to return there.

________

Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

To round things off with another successful stock call we made recently, we have EBIO, which we initially alerted on April 23rd at 1.86. Yesterday, after its fourth straight bullish session, EBIO hit 3.50, marking a move of 88% in just eight trading days.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Roundup & More

Cannabis Roundup

We wanted to take some time out this midweek to get back to cannabis, the rapidly growing industry that we’ve always said we felt has as much or more potential than any other out there. The first quarter of the 2018 calendar year was rather low key, but with some major cannabis dates coming up, we wanted to sharpen our focus on the sector.

The 04/20 Holiday is generally a time when you see heightened visibility, and an influx of sales for recreational marijuana businesses. It’s the “Super Bowl” for many of these businesses, which will see their highest customer volume of the year.

It’s a time of increased awareness in the investment community for the space as a whole, and that’s why we wanted to refresh our running watchlist of pot stocks on our radar:

As for the ones based here in the U.S. some of our favorites (in no particular order) have been: OWCP, AGTK, HEMP, SGMD, SING, GRNE, GOHE, MCOA, MCIG, POTN, PNTV, RMHB, CANN and CBIS.

We also have July to look forward to, which marks the nationwide legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada, where some of the most impressive cannabis companies, like ACBFF and APHQF reside. Other notable Canadian players include ATTBF, GLDFF, GLNNF, NXTTF, MRRCF, SPRWF, and CRON.


Facebook, Inc. FB

We started off the week on Monday by signaling some options ideas, the FB Weekly $155-160 Calls. Despite a terrible start to the week for the markets as a whole, yesterday’s bounce-back helped began to provide us with the kind of moves we were looking for out of those plays.

In fact, each of three contracts in our designated range yielded the chance at multi-bag gains yesterday, with the following moves:

$155 Calls – Range: 1.55-4.27  – Max Gain: 175%
$157.50 Calls – Range: .90-2.75 – Max Gain: 205%
$160 Calls – Range: .49-1.69 – Max Gain: 245%
