OPTIONS UPDATES

Activision Blizzard. Inc. ATVI – To follow up with our idea from Wednesday morning in our premarket report, the ATVI Weekly $42-43.50 Calls, we wanted to provide one more update after another big move from the stock pushed our highlighted targets to new highs yesterday, and registered a really impressive two-day swing.

AstraZeneca plc AZN – The AZN Weekly $38-39.50 Calls  were on our radar yesterday morning as our fresh options idea, and despite the lower end of that range being pushed too far in the money, we still saw some solid moves out of the $39′s and $39.50′s.

The $39′s ran from .55-.90 for a gain of 64%, while the $39.50′s cruised from a low of .19 to hit .55; a big-time intraday pop of 189%  We want to continue to watching this chain as well, with the 39.50′s, and also rolling up to include the $40 and $40.50′s*.

Invacare Corp. IVC – Recap

Also appearing in yesterday’s report, was IVC, which we tagged in our extended watchlist. The stock made a good move on the day, which warrants further observation in coming sessions.

From a low of 7.21 IVC reached 9.54, which was good for an intraday rise of 32% which made it the second highest gainer on the NASDAQ for Thursday. We’ll continue to monitor this one as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RARX Review & More

Ra Pharmaceuticals. Inc. RARX

It was the morning of December 12th that we most recently highlighted RARX, and it is one stock that has weathered the ups and downs of the past few weeks quite well. In fact, subsequent to that report, we’ve observed a run from a low of 15.23, up as high as 22.15. That amounts to a run of 45% which is highly respectable for a $15+ stock over a short time span.

That high also represented a new 52-week high for the stock, which is especially impressive when you consider that most stocks out there are just now coming off of recently established annual lows. We’ll be highly interested to see if RARX can continue to push its upper limits.

For what it’s worth, our first-ever mention of RARX came last February, when it was trading at less than $6/share.


Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR

We’ve got a long history with PBR options that stretches back years, as you can see in our PBR Archive. Like a lot of other stocks we’re seeing, PBR is coming off of recent relative lows, and has gained a quick boost from the loosening pressure on the markets over the past week.

PBR has breached its 50-day moving average in the premarket, and we want to line up a pair of quick-strike options trading possibilities to correspond with this volatile activity. We’ll be watching the PBR Weekly $14 & 14.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EBAY Ready For Reversal?

Ebay, Inc. EBAY – Bottom Play

On our routine morning scan today we noticed that EBAY, on Tuesday, registered a new annual low. The stock is at its lowest share price since April of 2017, and as our readers are well aware, we’re always on the hunt for a good bottom-play.

What we typically do in these scenarios, is signal a range of options calls with a moderate amount of time remaining until expiration. In this case we’re going to designate the EBAY 11/23 $33-35 Calls as our items of interest.

As you can see on the included chart, the relative strength is rising and the MACD has begun to converge toward a bullish cross. Coupled with Tuesday’s annual low and a sizable gap to fill on the order of roughly two dollars, and it makes EBAY an attractive bottom-bounce candidate.


Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ

We also like to look for opportunities on the heels of large companies reporting their earnings by highlighting options with weekly expiration, and that’s wjhat we want to do with STZ this morning.

We’re going to track the STZ Weekly $212.50-220 Calls through today and tomorrow’s sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TSLA Review & More

Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Recap

Our fresh options idea for the day yesterday morning was a range of puts in the TSLA  chain, on the heels of its poorly-received earnings call. What resulted, as the stock began the session under duress, were some very nice opportunities for us before lunchtime.

Our designated range was the TSLA Weekly $285-277.50 Puts and we happily observed the following solid moves:

$285 Calls – Range: 4.95-10.74 – Max Gain: 117%
$282.50 Calls – Range: 3.92-8.90 – Max Gain: 127%
$280 Calls – Range: 2.94-7.21 – Max Gain: 145%
$277.50 Calls – Range: 2.30-5.78 – Max Gain: 151%



Potential Bottom Plays

Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. ESPR – We like the look of the ESPR chart for a potential extended recovery play. As you can see on the chart the stock has been in quite a bit of trouble over the past few sessions, losing roughly half of its previous value in a matter of just a few days.We’re always looking for heavily oversold stocks in line for the chance at a big rebound.


________

Iconix Brand Group, Inc. ICON – We also want to add this one to our watchlist. The stock has been pushed way down amid an SEC investigation concerning ICON and a famous partner of the company, award-winning recording artist Jay-Z, and his Rocawear brand.

As you can see below, in addition to a more steady backslide that dates back much further, the stock has really gone into free fall in recent sessions, resulting in a scenario that could produce a significant rebound, which we’ll want to be looking for.
