Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Tons of Options

Options Updates

Late last week, we selected a few contracts in the Facebook and Twitter options chains for longer-term ideas. The FB 10/12 $182.50-190 Calls, and the TWTR 10/12 $35 & 37.50 Calls. While they haven’t blown their lids quite yet, we wanted to reiterate our interest in tracking these over a longer time period.

The somewhat nominal gains achieved so far are as follows:
FB 10/12 $182.50′s: .53-.80 (+51%) | $185′s: 40-.54 (+35%)
TWTR 10/12 $35′s: .33-.52 (+56%) | $37.50′s: .28-.40 (43%)

We’ll continue to track these ranges, as there is still plenty of time for them to begin realizing their full potential. What we’ve seen to this point may be just the beginning.

With a major category-4 hurricane currently inbound for the Carolina coastline this week, we’re also going to highlight some plays in Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement, which tend to see surges in the wake of storms big enough to require extensive cleanup and repairs. According to all predictive models, Hurricane Florence definitely fits that bill.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAP Recap & More

Advance Auto Parts, Inc. AAP

One of yesterday’s two options ideas that we offered up to our readers, AAP’s daily performance was the most pronounced. The machinations of the stock allowed for notable intraday gain opportunities, on the heels of the company’s Q2 earnings call. Those gains were as follows:

$145 Calls – Range: 8.92-14.55 – Max Gain:  62%
$150 Calls – Range: 4.80-9.67 – Max Gain: 40%
$155 Calls – Range: 2.50-5.40 – Max Gain: 51%

We’ve also caught word of a large share repurchase, so despite the fact that AAP is already in blue skies, we’ll continue to monitor these ideas.



The Home Depot, Inc. HD

The other fresh idea from yesterday’s report were the HD Weekly $195 & 197.50 Calls, and those also managed to produce significant chances for profits on the day.

The $195′s traded in a range from .81-2.46, a gain of 204% while the $187.50′s ran from .39-1.28. That was good for intraday gains of 228%



Energen Corp. EGN

Another longer-term set of ideas we recently offered up, the EGN 09/21 $75 & 77.50 Calls, have also begun to produce results. The $75 Calls gone from  1.10-1.95 (+77%), and the $77.50′straded from .90-1.10 (+22%).

While those are merely marginal moves, the stock is gearing up for another bullish session, gapping up significantly here in the premarket. We expect to see the ranges on these calls extended by a significant margin today.


FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS:
Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ 
just purchased an additional $4B stake in Canopy Growth Corp. CGC,putting the beverage manufacturer effectively into the cannabis business. We will signal some calls here in both cases.For STZ, the 09/14 $220 & 222.50 Calls, and for the Canopy chain- the CGC 09/21 $30-40 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NLSN Update & More

Neilsen N.V. NLSN

One of the items of interest from our premarket report yesterday morning was a selection of options ideas, including the NLSN  09/21 $25-27 Calls. Despite being a longer-term set of ideas, with more than a month until expiration, it still paid instant single-session dividends.

$43 Calls – Range: .65-1.05 – Max Gain:  62%
$43.50 Calls – Range: .50-.70 – Max Gain: 40%
$44 Calls – Range: .33-.50 – Max Gain: 51%

The gains weren’t eye-popping but it was definitely a good start, with the NLSN chart still boasting a sizable gap to the upside which was only partially filled by yesterday’s activity. We’ll continue to monitor the situation.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TNDM Recap & More

Tandem Diabetes Corp. TNDM

First up this morning, we want to recap the performance of TNDM, since slating it for observation on April 11th. The following day, the stock found support at 6.62, and hasn’t looked back since.

Yesterday, after what has been a bullish period that has already persisted for weeks on end, the stock hit a new high of 11.30. That works out to an upswing of 71% in just a shade over a month, and the highest PPS the stock has seen for more than eight months. We’re not that far off from seeing TNDM test the highs from its huge run back in August of last year.


Stein Mart, Inc. SMRT

We also would like to backtrack to a call we made even earlier in the year that has made some excellent long term progress. We signaled interest in SMRT back on March 16th, and in these past two months the stock has done little else but continue to bull its way upward.

From the 1.33 low we witnessed shortly after that alert, SMRT has gone on  to reach a high of 3.35. That works out to a gain of 152%



The Home Depot, Inc. HD – Options Idea

HD was already looking a bit top-heavy, and that’s before the company released a an exceedingly disappointing quarterly report.

We’re going to want to track a range of bearish options ideas to correspond with the present situation- the HD Weekly $187.50-182.50 Puts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Recap & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Recap

Our primary focus in Friday morning’s premarket report was the SPY, for which we had signaled and tracked a range of calls the previous day. Our initial targets were the SPY Weekly $270-272 Calls. and Friday we expanded that range to include the SPY Weekly $272.50-274 Calls.

After another bullish session for the SPY on Friday, we’ve got updates to the highs and overall possible gains on our original contracts, as well as the maximum intraday profits that could have been seized with our rolled up strike prices. All in all, we ended up with two incredible sets of one and two-day runners without a single dud in the bunch!

$270 Calls – Range: .85-5.32 – Max Gain: 526%
$270.50 Calls – Range: .70-4.69 – Max Gain: 570%
$271 Calls – Range: .52-4.33 – Max Gain: 733%
$271.50 Calls – Range: .39-3.80 – Max Gain: 874%
$272 Calls – Range: .30-3.31 – Max Gain: 1003%

$272.50 Calls – Range: .60-2.84 – Max Gain: 373%
$273 Calls – Range: .55-2.36 – Max Gain: 329%
$273.50 Calls – Range: .43-1.89 – Max Gain: 339%
$274 Calls – Range: .17-1.42 – Max Gain: 735%


DropCar Inc. DCAR

Catching our eye as a potential bottom-bounceplay this morning is DCAR, which, prior to today, has already begun to come up off of recently registered lows on Friday. As you can see on the included chart, our favorite indicators are clearly pointing up, with a MACD cross underway and a rapidly strengthening RSI.

This morning, a new catalyst has entered into the mix, with the company reporting a new agreement with Jaguar/Land Rover Manhattan. The dealership will use DropCar’s Enterprise Vehicle Assistance & Logistics technology platform to automate the pickup and delivery of customer vehicles for service and maintenance.

Despite gapping up moderately in the premarket, is still a fair bit of unrealized upside potential, so we’ll add DCAR to our radars and keep a close watch over it in coming sessions.
