Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Recap & More

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY)

We were all over the SPY last week, scoring some big chances for profits early on with some calls, and then flipping to the bearish end of things with some puts on Friday, which also happened to work like a charm. We played the SPY like a fiddle, and the potential returns were considerable.

Our targets were the SPY Weekly $263.50-262 Puts, and each of the four contracts contained within that range provided traders with huge gain opportunities, which were as follows:

$263.50 Puts – Range: .75-3.50 – Max Gain: 367%
$263 Puts – Range: .59-3.10 – Max Gain: 425%
$262.50 Puts – Range: .45-3.07 – Max Gain: 582%
$262 Puts – Range: .34-2.16 – Max Gain: 535%



Johnson & Johnson JNJ

We want to place JNJ on longer-term rebound watch today as the stock took an absolute plastering on Friday with roughly a $15 dip. Three separate insiders filed Form-4’s on Friday indicating share purchases at those lows. That is as good an indicator as any that belief is high in JNJ getting back on track in the near future.

We’re going to put the JNJ 01/25 $135-140 Calls on watch in the days and weeks ahead, as a recovery of some degree does not seem far off for JNJ.

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: FAST Review & More

Fastenal Co. FAST – Recap

We have had a continuous run of good fortune with our past several options calls over the last few weeks, and we continued to press our luck yesterday in signaling a range of options ideas for FAST.

We highlighted the FAST Weekly $50-55 Calls  as our fresh idea in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and not only did each of them provide chances for single-session profits, but they did so in absolutely grand fashion.

Serious multi-bag moves were on the menu regardless of which of the three strike points in our selected range was chosen by traders, with the $55’s being the most eye-popping with 38-bagger!

$50 Calls – Range: 1.65-6.50 – Max Gain: 294%
$52.50 Calls – Range: .45-4.00 – Max Gain: 789%
$55 Calls – Range: .05-1.98 – Max Gain: 3860%
______

Fresh Idea :
Delta Airlines, Inc. DAL Weekly $49.50-51.50 Calls


Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IDRA

We also want to place IDRA on bottom watch this morning after noticing how oversold the stock has become.

A merger agreement, one that wasn’t particularly favored to begin with, was cancelled, causing a big selloff. The kicker, is a literal ‘kicker’, a cancellation fee of $6M payable to IDRA by the proposed merger partner. That’s why we feel now is a good time to begin watching IDRA for a possible bottom bounce.
