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: Tons of Options

Options Updates

Late last week, we selected a few contracts in the Facebook and Twitter options chains for longer-term ideas. The FB 10/12 $182.50-190 Calls, and the TWTR 10/12 $35 & 37.50 Calls. While they haven’t blown their lids quite yet, we wanted to reiterate our interest in tracking these over a longer time period.

The somewhat nominal gains achieved so far are as follows:
FB 10/12 $182.50′s: .53-.80 (+51%) | $185′s: 40-.54 (+35%)
TWTR 10/12 $35′s: .33-.52 (+56%) | $37.50′s: .28-.40 (43%)

We’ll continue to track these ranges, as there is still plenty of time for them to begin realizing their full potential. What we’ve seen to this point may be just the beginning.

With a major category-4 hurricane currently inbound for the Carolina coastline this week, we’re also going to highlight some plays in Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement, which tend to see surges in the wake of storms big enough to require extensive cleanup and repairs. According to all predictive models, Hurricane Florence definitely fits that bill.
