Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAP, NPTN & More

Advance Auto Parts AAP – Options

We have a confluence of favorable conditions to look AAP for potential options trades as we kick off a new trading week this morning. As of the end of last week, the stock was trading very near to its annual lows , and has a significant gap on the chart to the upside. Combine that with the company’s strong earnings report including a solid beat on profits, and we’re interested to see where this one will take us.

To try and take advantage of the present scenario, we’re going to tag both a shart and a longer term set of ideas, in the event that the stock sees an extended recovery, as the the chart setup suggests it might. We’ll be looking to AAP Weekly $85-95 Calls, and the 01/19 $95-105 Calls.


NeoPhotonics Corp. NPTN

We also would like to go over the move made by NPTN after we signaled it for observation last Monday morning. Subsequent to that point we ‘ve witnessed a respectable run from a low of    5.10 to a high of 6.66, a gain of 31%

We saw the stock record higher lows every single day last week, and will look for that trend to continue. If the stock can break the double top formation that’s currently on the chart, we could be in line to see much more significant gains.

$18 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.60 – Max Gain: 160%

Fresh Ideas:

Microsoft Corp. MSFT Weekly $82-85 Calls*

Apple Inc. AAPL Weekly $157.50-160 Calls*

*Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s just about as risky as it gets.


ITUS Corp. ITUS

We’ve been tracking ITUS since September 21st, subsequent to which point we witnessed a really great move in the stock from 1.92-5.15 for gains of up to 168% over just a few sessions.

In the past few weeks ITUS has been under consolidation, but yesterday the stock came down and kissed the 50DMA before bouncing. It’s gapping up this morning in the premarket, so we’ll want to watch closely for it to hold the 200DMA of 2.19 on any pullbacks. If it can manage that, we like the chances of seeing what could be more sizable moves for the stock in coming sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CAPR, VYGR, HMNY Recaps & More

Recent Big Winners

We have a large group of updates on previously called plays that we wanted to briefly swing back around and report performance information on this morning:

Voyager Therapeutics, Inc. VYGR – We alerted on VYGR on the 6th of September, witnessing a low of 12.33 and after finishing the rest of the month on a bullish streak, Friday brought a new high of 22.28. That’s a three week swing of 81%, which is fantastic for a stock in this price range.
______

Capricor Therapeutics, Inc. CAPR – We signaled our interest in CAPR later on in September,on the 20th. The following day we observed a low of 1.80, and like the above-mentioned play, it never looked back. Friday’s new high of 3.05, represented a 69% increase in just over a week’s time.
______

Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. HMNY – We’ve discussed this one quite a bit recently, also beginning on September 20th. That morning  we saw a low of 5.469, and once again, it has been nothing but bullish moves ever since. On Friday the stock hit 14.17, marking a fantastic move of 159% in a little over a week.


Blackberry Ltd. BBRY – Options Recap

We also wanted to provide the final figures on the BBRY options we signaled in Thursday’s premarket report, the BBRY Weekly $9.50 & $10 Calls.  Friday’s session brought new highs for both sets.

The final intraweek range on the $9.50 Calls ended up being from .37 to 1.81 for a gain of 389%, while the $10′s breached the ten-bagger mark with an extraordinary run of 1025% from .12-1.35. Even readers who just caught Friday morning’s mention of these plays could still have made single-session profits of up to 103% and 202%, respectively.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates, New Ideas

ITUS Corp. ITUS 

As we were just mentioning yesterday, we first highlighted ITUS in Thursday’s premarket report, and later that day we observed a low of 1.92. Friday and Monday both brought the recording of higher highs and higher lows, and yesterday followed suit.

We watched as ITUS pushed upward once again, trading in a daily range from 4.00 to a new high of 5.15. It worked out to an intraday move of 29%, and an overall increase of 168% over the low we witnessed on the morning of our initial alert. For a stock that was already approaching $2/share when we came upon it, that’s a fantastic four-day swing.


IZEA, Inc. IZEA

Speaking of higher priced stocks we’ve called that have made some impressive moves, we’re talking about IZEA again as well. We called it on Monday morning, and saw a move from 4.54 to a high of 6.35 (+40%) that day, and specifically reiterated our signal yesterday morning.

It’s a good thing we did, because the stock wasn’t finished running. It made a modest 25% move up from a low of 5.73 to a new high of 7.17. That works out to an admirable two-day swing of 58%


Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Recap

Yesterday morning we noted the fact that AAPL was showing signs of a reversal and rebound after a selloff period. We mentioned that we’d radar the AAPL Weekly $150-155 Calls for quick-strike trade opportunities and our idea worked very nicely.

Regardless of which strike price was chosen in our selected range, the chances for considerable intraday profits were on the table. The potential gains on the day were as follows:

$150 Calls – Range: 2.30-4.10 – Max Gain: 78%
$152.50 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.07 – Max Gain: 107%.
$155 Calls – Range: .28-.69 – Max Gain: 146%


Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

We also want to talk about MARA this morning, as we’re noticing an interesting chart setup currently in effect. The laast time we mentioned the stock was in July, and while we were a little early to party as it was still searching for a bottom, it didn’t take more than a few weeks for the stock to ultimately establish support and launch a rebound off a low of .22.

Since that time, the stock has made a nice move to the tune of 127% as it reached a high of .50 this week. We’re going to look out closely for a potential breach of a previous resistance point at .56, after which the stock could see another leg-up. As you can see on the snapshot below, the MACD is executing a bullish cross while the RSI shows MARA about to break into the Power Zone.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IZEA, ITUS Recaps & More

ITUS Corp. ITUS 

We included a tag of ITUS in this past Thursday’s premarket report, after noticing the stock’s liquidity and price action increasing in a big way in the sessions leading up to that.

Despite already seeing big moves to that point, it was just the start for the excellent run made by this stock in the last three sessions. We observed a low of 1.92 in ITUS on Thursday, and yesterday the stock reached a new high of 4.30. That represents a three-day swing of 124%

Volume over the same period has been vastly greater than average. The whole trend was catalyzed when the company updated shareholders on its cancer detection technology, on the morning of our initial alert.


Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We’ve been tracking HMNY since  August 15th, where-after we witnessed a low of 2.42.
We were just mentioning this, and the fantastic multi-bag moves the stock has made since, in yesterday’s premarket report. We also mentioned that based on the previous close, that we’d “look for the continued establishment of higher highs and higher lows.”

Despite already having gone up so much in the course of the last five weeks, the stock’s excellent performance yesterday did push it to new highs yet again. In fact, it streaked all the way to 9.65, representing an overall move of 299% since we began tracking its activity.


IZEA, Inc. IZEA

We also want to reiterate our signal on IZEA yesterday, which made a move of 40% in trading up from its morning low of 4.54 to a high of 6.35. It was a respectable gain, but this morning the stock is gapping up and pushing the $7-mark, so we’ll jeep our eyes peeled for the possibility of a more sustained uptrend.


Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Idea

With the hint of a reversal and rebound after a rapid weeks-long selloff in AAPL, combined with a premarket gap-up this morning, we’d like to signal a range of AAPL calls to coincide with the activity and possibly help us find some quick-strike trade opportunities. We’ll radar the AAPL Weekly $150-155 Calls to try to do just that.
