Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INTC Recap & More

Intel Corp. INTC

On Friday morning, we saw serious potential in the INTC options chain following the company’s earning beat. They posted solid figures, but some were concerned over the possible security flaws prsent in the company’s new chips. Those fears were shrugged off with ease, as the stock took off for what ultimately turned out to be an exceptionally bullish session.

The move INTC made allowed for the chance at some really nice intraday profits in each of the three contracts we designated in Friday morning’s report, the INTC Weekly $47.50-48.50 Calls.

$47.50 Calls – Range: .75-2.50 – Max Gain: 233%
$48 Calls – Range: .43-1.99 – Max Gain: 362%
$48.50 Calls – Range: .25-1.50 – Max Gain: 500%


Ballard Power Systems, Inc. BLDP – Bottom-Watch

We’re always looking for a good bottom play, and one may be getting ready to present itself in the near future on BLDP. We want to place the stock on intensive bottom-watch in coming sessions, after it appears that BLDP has been the target of manipulative short-seller tactics, including a very likely erroneous class action ‘investigation’ and suit by multiple law firms. We see this type of thing all the time, and very seldom does anything come of such a situation.

What we do have is a stock that has been severely abused, beaten back to a previous multiple bottom of strong support. In a PR published today, the company has refuted the claims of its accusers, while adding that it expects to report record financials for fiscal 2017 presently. (>>View PR)

We’ll be sure to monitor BLDP for a bottom bounce which should be forthcoming at any time, and the subsequent rebound to follow, which could bring us a shot at considerable gains from current levels.

Side Note: We also want to radar Plug Power, Inc. PLUG, as it tends to trade very similarly to BLDP. We’ve traditionally looked at these plays in tandem, so we’ll keep watch over PLUG as well as it comes down to find its own bottom.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis News Play & More

Stereo Vision Entertainment SVSN

We had SVSN hit our scanner this morning after we noticed an interesting PR coming across the wires. We’re always looking for new interests in the cannabis space, and SVSN fits that bill. Unlike many of the companies in the business conduct their activities primarily in the western states, SVSN has an operation in Florida.

The company just announced a February 1, 2018 Grand Opening of its majority owned subsidiary CannaVision’s Bay Pines medical cannabis and holistic pain management clinic in St Petersburg, Florida. (>>View PR)

We’ll be interested to track the progress of this new facility, and SVSN stock itself going forward.


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We also want to throw in a quick options idea for the SPY, which despite a momentary hiccup in its week’s-long bullish trend yesterday, looks to be gapping up and ready to get back on track today. There are a set of contracts expiring today that we want to radar: the SPY 01/17 $277.50-279 Calls*.

Please be aware that contracts approaching expiration are subject to evaporating premiums due to time decay, so these are quick-strike opportunities only. We’ll be looking for the classic early dip and rip pattern, which should present those chances for intraday flips.

*Be aware that this idea is extremely high risk, and for advanced level traders only!

Amazon.com Inc. AMZN – Options Recap

We’ve been tracking a wide range of AMZN calls since our premarket report on Monday morning.

We placed the AMZN 10/06 $965-980 Calls on watch as we were looking for a reversal from the stock that did occur. Yesterday we only provided the moves from the bottom and the top of the range to save time but today we’ll lay out the moves from every set of contracts we’ve been watching.

We mentioned that the gains we had seen up until yesterday morning could be added on to by what appeared to be a bullish session forthcoming, and that came to pass as well. Every set in the range has seen solid intraweek gains.

Lululemon Athletica

LULU was, for the most part, in a general downtrend during the month of August, but to kick off September it looks like a change in pattern in due.

The company posted a solid beat on its post-market quarterly earnings release yesterday, and we want to use that untraded-upon development potentially to our advantage using an options idea.

We’ve had tremendous success with the LULU chain in the past, and this time, we’re going to be tracking the LULU Weekly $60.50-62 Calls* for possible daytrades.

*We never discuss weekly options on a Friday without going out of our way to warn our readers that trading contracts with a weekly expiration on a Friday is exceedingly risky and should only ever be attempted by expert traders!!!
