Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Update

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Update

Our fresh options idea to kick off the new trading week yesterday utilizing the SPY started off on a good foot. It’s something we always come back to because of the predictable way it behaves and trades.

We designated the SPY 06/19 $289-290.50 Calls as our contracts of interest, and the markets’ activity played into our hands nicely, for a start. Here were the gains that were made possible on the day yesterday:

$289 Calls – Range: 1.50-2.00 – Max Gain: 33%
$289.50 Calls – Range: 1.24-1.73 – Max Gain: 40%
$290 Calls – Range: 1.00-1.45 – Max Gain: 45%
$290.50 Calls – Range: .80-1.15 – Max Gain: 196%

The SPY is gapping up once again today, and we expect all of these calls to open deep in the money and see new highs. We’re going to continue to monitor these, but also look to roll up and include the $291 and $291.50′s in our watchlist as well.


Robert Half International, Inc. RHI

We’ve got another fresh idea based on the technical setup of the RHI chart, which has been trending up off a double bottom. We see some decent volatility potential, and a topside gap to fill on the chart. This is going to be a longer term idea, which could ultimately turn into a solid recovery play.

We are going to place the RHI 09/20 $55-65 Calls on watch for the weeks and months ahead. RHI most likely wouldn’t even have to fill that gap for us to see results. A run at the 200DMA or even 50DMA would likely produce significant gains in those contracts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Mid-Week Updates

Lans Holdings, Inc. LAHO

Over the years we have evolved as the markets have, always trying to find the quickest ways to find the largest gain opportunities possible. On occasion, we do take a break from the big boards and options trading that have become our bread and butter, and go back to our subpenny roots on the OTC. Yesterday, we picked up on LAHO as the company released some fresh news and we witnessed quite an intraday run from the stock.

LAHO traded up from a low of .0005 and hit .0009, for a move of 80% and in some premarket activity this morning, we’ve seen trades go off at .0011, which marks a 24-hour swing of 120% We’ll continue to watch to see if this play can keep the momentum going.


Xalles Holdings, Inc. XALL

We also took a look at XALL in yesterday’s newsletter, another microcap that has been building a head of steam recently. This crypto play has been riding the wave of Bitcoin’s resurgence in a big way, and kept that going for us in yesterday’s session.

XALL traded in a range from .015 up to .021 for a respectable intraday push of 40% out of this stock, whose public float was recently halved. We’ll keep monitoring this one as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh AMPG News

Amplitech Group, Inc. AMPG – Big News Alert

First thing’s first- Amplitech has just dropped a fresh PR this morning in the premarket that we wanted to pass along to our readers. As we were just mentioning yesterday, this stock has made a solid 28% increase since we first began tracking it on April 1st (.043-.055), so we’re very interested to take a look at the key news update that has just been provided.

For a sum of just over $2M, AMPG has executed an acquisition of the business assets of privately-held, NY-based, microwave tech firm, Specialty Microwave Corp. (SMW), which boasts an average annual rate of $1.75M in sales over the past three years. A continuation of that trend following the final completion of the acquisition would nearly double AMPG’s 2018 sales! (>>View PR)

What this means for AMPG stock, which was already plenty attractive to us prior to learning of this development, is massive potential for more gains in the immediate future. Remember, we’re dealing with an incredibly tight share structure in AMPG, with just 22M shares in the float, so news of such an acquisition has the potential to be a springboard to a significantly higher PPS!

The deal is for all of SMW’s assets, customers, team members, and upon final completion in the next quarter, AMPG will move its own operations to SMW’s headquarters, just a few miles down the road from Bohemia in nearby Ronkonkoma, NY, and is expected to be wrapped up by July.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Success

UnitedHealth Group Inc UNH

As we near the midway point of this holiday-shortened week, we are going to be taking a look at a fresh earnings related options idea with UnitedHealth.

The company just posted an impressive across-the-board earnings beat, while the chart itself was already in a prime bottom-bounce position. We are going to track the UNH Weekly $232.50-237.50 Calls, which should be in very good shape if events play out as expected.


Fastenal, Inc. FAST

We also signaled the FAST 04/18 $62.50-67.50 Calls, last Thursday following the company’s own earnings beat. The moves we’ve observed since then have been moderate, but still impressive nonetheless.

$62.50 Calls – Range: 5.40-7.10 – Max Gain: 31%
$65 Calls – Range: 2.40-4.80  – Max Gain: 100%
$67.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.43 – Max Gain: 121%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Bottom Plays

Motif Bio plc MTFB – Bottom-Watch Play

With not a lot happening on the premarket earnings front this morning, we are looking elsewhere for potential opportunities. We’re interested in the current setup on MTFB, which from the current are, seems far more likely to see a big increase than a big decrease at the present time.

There is an absolutely massive gap to the upside on the chart as you can see. Should it move to fill that gap once again, we could be looking at a significant chance for gains here.


Liquidia Tech, Inc. LQDA

We also want to point out the prime bottom setup on LQDA, which was a $20 stock just a month ago. Now trading at half that amount, there is a gap on the chart that needs to be filled here as well and all indicators are pointing to a strong possibility of that happening sooner rather than later.

We will reserve a space on our radar for this play over the next several sessions. LQDA could very easily return to the $15-level relatively soon without a problem.
