Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY, TSLA Options

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Options Ideas

We’ve now had two consecutive sessions of gains for stocks following a weeks-long downtrend, and are eager to see if this reversal of fortune has a more lasting effect. With a high degree of uncertainty at play, and the potential for volatile swings in either direction, we’re going to signal two opposing sets of ideas in the SPY chain, to set ourselves up for any eventuality. We may even see a case of another dip-and-rip kind of session, where we play one set early on and another later in the day.

Our two sets of ideas are going to be the SPY Weekly $248-249.50 Calls*, and the SPY Weekly $251-250 Puts*.  If the SPY can get above the premarket high of 251.16 during the session, we’ll look to our bullish ideas. Failure to do so, will cause us to track the bearish ones. Either way we should have good opportunities laid before us by the SPY today.


Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea

We’ve also formulated an idea for the TSLA chain. Tesla stock is getting another boost this morning after proposed additions to the board of directors, including Larry Ellison, the founder of Oracle Corp. (ORCL), are being very well received by investors.

We’re going to track the TSLA Weekly $322.50-327.50 Calls* on the heels of this announcement.

*NEVER trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you are an advanced level trader with disposable funds!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ADIL Update

Adial Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ADIL

It has been an absolutely awful end to 2018, with a market bloodbath beginning roughly six weeks ago and amounting to perhaps the worst conditions we’ve seen in a decade. Despite that fact, with most big-board stock hovering at or near their annual lows, we have still managed to find a few plays that have bucked the trend.

One such stock is ADIL, which we signaled a couple weeks back on the morning of the 13th. That day, the stock was trading for as little as 2.55 a share. It has mainly experienced bullish activity even as everything around it has been going the opposite way. On Monday ADIL reached a new high of 5.75, marking a move of 125% in a span of two weeks.


Aemetis, Inc. AMTX

If you’re searching for a bottom play, you won’t have far to look in this market, as we just mentioned above. However, among all these bottom-feeding stocks we’ve got AMTX, which has a compelling reason to perhaps begin to recover some ground.

This morning, the company announced a huge round of non-toxic funding which is going to allow it to begin implementing a key element of its strategy in the New Year. We’re going to place AMTX on watch into 2019, especially with the company having a conference call scheduled for the second week in January. Things could get interesting between now and then thanks to this morning’s news.

CUPERTINO, CA, Dec. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Aemetis, Inc. (AMTX) announced today that its subsidiary, Aemetis Biogas LLC, closed a $30 million equity investment without any dilute stock issuance by Aemetis, Inc. and funded the first $8.3 million tranche to subsidiary Aemetis Biogas to build, own and operate dairy biomethane digesters, pipelines and gas cleanup/compression facilities primarily under 20-year agreements with dairy farms in California (>>View Full PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stock: Tech Options Plays

TECH OPTIONS

We’re seeing a bit of a rebound in the markets this morning after they once again got crushed yesterday. Partially due to a better-than-expected economic report on Durable Orders, we’ll look for the highest profile companies with fresh earnings out that appear set to move this morning.

TSLA and MSFT both dropped their reports in after-market hours yesterday, and look to be our most promising potential targets today.

The tech sector as a whole was among the hardest hit in the recent spate of losses for domestic stocks, with many, if not most of its players being beaten back to unsustainably low levels, so the timing is actually quite good for some solid movement off of these earnings reports.

We expect a market recovery to provide us with plenty of chances to take advantage of all of these underpriced stocks as they rebound in the days and weeks ahead.

TSLA Weekly $310-317.50 Calls
MSFT Weekly $104-107 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL Options & More

Delta Airlines Inc. DAL

Despite a tumultuous day for the markets yesterday, and mostly everything taking on a bearish characteristic, we’re still going to go bullish on DAL in the wake of the company’s quarterly earnings report released this morning.

Despite rising fuel costs, the company revealed that profits soared well past expectations as a result of increased demand leading to higher ticket prices.

As we always try to do when a company posts a solid beat, we’ll designate a range of options to place on watch, in this case the DAL Weekly $49.50-52 Calls. We’ll go ahead and track these into the end of the week. DAL stock was already oversold, getting hammered for weeks, so this report may be just the catalyst needed to effect an impressive reversal.



SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We had great success with the SPY earlier this week, and we want to come back to it this morning in the wake of the markets getting crushed yesterday. With the amount of uncertainty and potential volatility out there, we want to set ourselves up to have an active idea no matter which way the winds blow.

Should the SPY fall below $276, we will target the SPY Weekly $277 & $276 Puts. If it pulls above $276 we will focus on the $276 and $277 Calls, so either way, we should be able to quickly identify the proper course once trading commences. .
