Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Review

Acuity Brands, inc. AYI – Options Update

We took the opportunity to jump on some AYI calls following a poor showing from the company’s Q3 financials. We felt that the blow taken by the stock in the previous session was an overreaction, and decided to radar a couple of sets of contracts in the AYI chain to correspond with what we assumed would be a rebound from this burst of overselling,

Our targets were the AYI 07/19 $125-130 Calls.  We banked on a course correction to provide us with a push and things turned out just as we hoped they might. The stock traded in a daily range from a low of 129.90 and cruised as high as 136.74. That allowed for some very respectable intraday gain opportunities for us, and we will want to continue to monitor these in the sessions ahead.

The $125 Calls ran from 6.10-11.55 for a daily rip of 89% while the $130′s went from 2.85-7.20, a gain of 153%  A full two weeks remain before these contracts expire.


KB Homes KBH – Recap 

We also signaled our interest in some KBH calls last Thursday. Since that time, the stock has been slowly creeping upward, and we’ve realized the potential for some very nice moves in our KBH 07/19 $26-27 Calls, which experienced their lows on the morning of our initial alert, and reached new highs yesterday.

The $26 Calls ran from .35-1.05, for an even 200% burst, while the $27′s fared slightly better. Those produced a move from .15-.47, signifying a run of 213%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Solid Runners

SOLID RUNNERS

We tagged both INSY and HSGX in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and both stocks produced admirable runs on the day. 

INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY just registered its lowest price ever earlier this week, and we thought it would be worth it to track as a potential bottom-bounce play. The return was instantaneous. INSY opened at a low of .32 before running as high as .74, which marks an intraday pop of 131%

There is still a huge gap to the topside on the chart, so we’ll definitely continue to monitor the activity on INSY in the days and weeks ahead.
_____

Histogenics Corp. HSGX was also a solid mover for us on the day yesterday. This stock has traded mostly flat for the whole of 2019 so far, but it looks like we tagged it as a bottom play at an opportune moment.

From a low of .24 it reached .32 for a respectable 33% gain, but this could just be the beginning. We’ll want to continue tracking this play as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates

MGM Resorts International Inc. MGM

On Monday morning, we issued a Form-4 alert on MGM after witnessing more than $75M in insider buying at a bottom pour in over the course of the previous three sessions.

We can usually have a fairly high rate of confidence that a stock in this situation will produce a rebound, and so far that’s just what we’ve seen. We signaled the MGM 08/16 $28-30 Calls for tracking, and so far, we’ve seen some pretty nice moves.

$28 Calls – Range: 1.09-1.80 – Max Gain: 65%
$29 Calls – Range: .96-1.32 – Max Gain: 38%
$30 Calls – Range: .68-.95 – Max Gain: 40%

There is plenty of time to continue to look after this idea, which could certainly produce further gains from this point forward.

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR

We also added a pair of options contracts to watch in the HEAR chain last Thursday, and while we also have plenty of time to realize added gains in this case as well, the early performance out of these has been noteworthy, especially the $15′s which have already recorded a multi-bag move.

HEAR 10/18 $12.50-15 Calls.
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%
$15 Calls – Range: .20-.50 – Max Gain: 150%

Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. OCUL – Recap

We also wanted to quickly mention the performance of OCUL since we alerted on the stock last month. It has produced quite a dip and rip since that time, touching a low of 2.38 before running as high as 4.08. That marks a total possible gain of 71% in a span of just over three weeks.
