Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Ideas & More

Options Ideas

Tesla Inc. TSLA- With TSLA recently finding support after a month-long overall downtrend, and its earnings report coming up this afternoon post-market, we’re going to want to signal a few options contracts for observation.

A bullish head start yesterday may help the stock continue to run into earnings, and could turn the TSLA  Weekly $330-337.50 Calls into premium targets as we head into the end of the week.

Allergan plc AGN - Despite posting a Q3 loss, AGN beat expectations, and did see an 11.4% hike in quarter-over-quarter revenues. Combined with the fact that the stock has just come off of a new 52-week low, and it makes us very interested in this as a potential recovery play.

Accordingly, we are going to put the AGN Weekly $175-180 Calls on watch for the remainder of the week, and depending on how the activity shakes out, we may want to look out to next week’s contracts if it appears a more protracted rebound is in the cards. We’ll revisit that possibility later in the week if necessary.


Apptio, Inc. APTI

We also want to provide a quick performance update on APTI, which we included in yesterday’s premarket report.

It wasn’t a blockbuster day by any means, but it did manage to rise from a low of 20.57 to as much as 24.47. That’s a 19% intraday increase, and a very respectable single-session gain for a stock that started out above $20 to begin with. It made the move on more than thirteen times the monthly average volume, so we’ll definitely let this one keep its slot on our watchlists for the time being.

Twitter, Inc. TWTR

We had a really good idea for the TWTR options chain on Thursday morning with the Weekly $18-19.50 Calls. Not only did they make multi-bag gains on Thursday, but with another bullish session Friday, our total possible profits were extended by a significant margin.

We’ve listed the overall moves below, in addition to the intraday gains that were available on Friday alone.

$18 Calls – Overall Range: 1.00-3.95 – 2-Day Gain: 295% – Friday Intraday: 76%
$18.50 Calls – Overall Range: .64-3.38 – 2-Day Gain: 216% – Friday Intraday: 97%

The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. BONT

We tagged BONT on Thursday morning, at which time we observed a low of .68 in the stock. After a solid first session, we reiterated the tag in Friday’s report and the stock came out of the starting gate like a bolt. It traded all the way up to 1.15 before tapering back, but not before completing a two-day swing of 69% for us.

The stock’s presently hovering around a dollar, so we’ll be watching as the new trading week kicks off this morning to see if BONT can manage to string together a third session of higher highs and higher lows.
