Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup

We had good fortune with our fresh options call yesterday, so today we’re going to be recapping the total possible gains on those plays, as well as unearthing a couple of fresh ideas to add to the mix as we close out this trading week.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Recap - Our inkling on DAL yesterday morning was to go bearish after a disappointing earnings call for the airline, with the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts. We were not disappointed with our decision to do so, as those DAL puts went on to log the following double and multi-bag intraday moves for us before lunch hour was over:

$55.50 Puts – Range: .76-1.60 – Max Gain: 110%
$55 Puts – Range: .48-1.05 – Max Gain: 119%
$54.50 Puts – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 160%
$54 Puts – Range: .13-.36 – Max Gain: 177%
$53.50 Calls – Range: .03-.17 – Max Gain: 466%

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD

Speaking of bearish options ideas, we want to enter another fresh set into the log this morning in AMD. This stock trades very cyclically, and from a technical perspective, looks as if it could continue to lose ground after a reversal this week. We’re going to place the AMD 07/21 $14-13 Puts on watch into next week in the event that our impression of this play is correct.
______

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. BJRI

Lastly on the options front, we are going to signal a range of extended-term calls on BJRI, which has a pretty attractive bottom setup on the chart at the moment. To take advantage of a potential sustained rebound, we’re going to be monitoring the BJRI 08/18 $35 & 40 Calls.
_____

Bonus Idea: NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls


Diana Containerships. Inc. DCIX

DCIX went into a full-on nose dive recently after it was announced that the company would be taking out roughly an $85M loan to settle a monster pile of debt, and the investment community did not take the news well.

The stock has subsequently fallen to new all-time lows, and that’s where we come in. We’re always looking for stocks like this to put on bottom-watch. Being egregiously oversold, DCIX may yet have a bit further to fall, but we’ll want to be ready for a reversal at any time. The resulting bounce-back could be considerable.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates, Options Review & More

El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. ECPN

After observing a low of .1222 in ECPN subsequent to our alert on Wednesday, the stock has done nothing but show steady increases each day since.

Yesterday’s session brought an intraday move of 42% as the stock ran from .193-.275. That new high represents an overall increase of 125% in the four sessions since we began tracking.

Yesterday we stated that ECPN was receiving a rare 100% ‘Buy’ Rating at BARCHART.COM and that remains true this morning.



JC Penney Co. Inc. JCP – Options Update

Our options trading idea from Friday, the JCP 08/19 $9.50-10.50 Calls ended up having another great session for us to start the week yesterday. We mentioned that we’d be on the lookout for those plays to continue the momentum from Friday, when they afforded us gains ranging from 164-640%

It was a good thing that we did, because the three sets of contracts went on to not only make nice intraday moves, but a couple of them also extended our overall observed gains from the previous session by a significant margin.

$9.50 Calls – Range: 1.11-1.76  – Intraday: 59% – Two-Day: 300%
$10 Calls – Range: .63-1.31 – Intraday: 108% – Two-Day: 719%
$10.50 Calls – Range: .30-.83 – Intraday: 177%


MarilynJean Interactive, Inc. MJMI

We’ve been tracking MJMI since early this month, and the stock has performed quite well, mostly experiencing upward momentum during that time.

Our observed low on the play came in at .091 back on the 5th, and as of yesterday’s new high of .30 we had borne witness to an increase of 230%


Innovativ Media Group, Inc. INMG

INMG came off of yesterday’s watchlist, and the stock made a nice move on the day. From a low of .00475, it reached as high as .007 for a solid 47% jump, which occurred on roughly six and a half times the monthly average volume.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JCP Options Recap & More

JC Penney Co. Inc. JCP – Options Update

On Friday morning, we offered up a fresh options trading idea for JCP to track in the wake of an earnings beat for the retailer. The specific targets we selected were the JCP 08/19 $9.50-10.50 Calls and after the excellent intraday move from JCP itself (9.70-10.72) each of those sets of contracts yielded the chance at some big-time single-session gains.

The total possible profits for on the day for each were as follows:

$9.50 Calls – Range:  .44-1.16 – Max Gain: 164%
$10 Calls – Range: .16-.79 – Max Gain: 394%
$10.50 Calls – Range: 1.23-2.61 – Max Gain: 640%

With the expiration on these contracts set for Friday, we’ll have the remainder of the week to continue observing these plays if the activity in JCP stock allows.


El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. ECPN

We also want to provide an update on the performance of another idea we submitted to our readers last week,. We tagged ECPN for observation in Wednesday morning’s premarket report, and the stock spent the next three sessions trending up.

The low we witnessed on Wednesday came in at .1222 and that eventually gave rise to a new high of .1989 on Friday afternoon, marking a solid three-day swing of 63%  It also managed to close quite near its high-of-day, so we’ll be interested to continue following its progress as we kick off a new trading week.

It’s also worth it to mention that at present, ECPN is receiving a rare 100% ‘Buy’ Rating across the board for short, medium, and long term over at BARCHART.COM.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WOLV Video Chart, Options & More

Wolverine Technologies Corp. WOLV

We want to place WOLV on watch this morning for a couple of reasons. Apart from coming off of a recent support level and showing some bottom-bounce activity, we also like the involvement of David Chalk, formerly of the TV show, Tech Talk with David Chalk.

David recently signed a purchase agreement with the company, with plans for him to come on board as a tech consultant once the transaction is completed, so someone of his notoriety putting skin in the game on WOLV definitely gets our attention. And, as we said, the stock is also interesting from a technical standpoint.

View the following video presentation of the chart going over what makes WOLV an attractive play at the moment:



Solid Picks From Yesterday

We had a couple of the stock ideas from yesterday morning’s premarket report pan out for some good intraday moves:

Worlds, Inc. WDDD
– Trading Range: .017-.029 – Gain: 71%

MarilynJean Interactive, Inc. MJMI –
Trading Range: .205-.255 – Gain: 24%

Added Note: We’ve been tracking Intermolecular, Inc. IMI since Wednesday and it has made small increases, reaching higher highs each day. We want to continue to watch this multi-day mover.


Macy’s Inc. M – Options Update

We reminded our readers yesterday of just how adept we’ve become at spotting prime options trading opportunities on the heels of impressive earnings calls, and Macy’s was ultimately a fantastic target for us in that regard.

We specified a target range that included seven sets of contracts, and multi-bag single-session moves were made by every single one of them! Our selections, the M Weekly $36.50-39.50 Calls, turned out the following gains on the day:

$36.50 Calls

Salesforce.com, Inc. CRM – Options Update

Our fresh options idea in yesterday morning’s report panned out very well for us when all was said and done. We highlighted a range which encompassed six sets of contracts, the CRM Weekly $67.50-70 Calls, and regardless of which strike point was chosen, hefty intraday profits were there for the taking from around lunchtime, right up until the close.

The magnitude of the potential profits we observed were certainly not as epic as the two separate chances at 1500% gains provided to us by our Macy’s calls from earlier in the week, but in and of themselves, still very impressive.

$67.50 Calls – Trading Range: .70-2.04  – Max Gain: 191%
$68 Calls – Trading Range: .37-1.70 – Max Gain: 359%
$68.50 Calls – Trading Range: .35-1.20 – Max Gain: 243%
$69 Calls – Trading Range:  .12-.83 – Max Gain: 591%
$69.50 Calls – Trading Range: .13-.60 – Max Gain: 362%
$70 Calls – Trading Range:  .08-.30 – Max Gain: 275%

We must be doing something right when a 500% rip begins to seem small by comparison! In an attempt to extend our extreme good fortune with options plays this week right up to the end, we’ve prepared a couple of ideas* for possible day-trades based on premarket activity this morning.

Palo Alto Networks, Inc. – PANW Weekly $147-152.50 Calls

Baidu, Inc. - BIDU Weekly $172.50-177.50 Calls

*Pertaining to both of the preceding ideas, remember to always consider the inherent elevated risk associated with trading weekly options contracts on a Friday!


USA Restaurant Funding, Inc. USAR

After USAR offered us the chance at intraday gains of up to 51% on Wednesday as it ran from .0093-.0148, we suggested that a bounceplay could be in the cards, given the volatility we had observed- the stock had pulled back considerably toward the end of the session.

The rebound we referred to did come to pass during yesterday’s session, as USAR traded up from its daily low of  .0071 to a high of .0098. That represented a modest but solid 38% move on the day.


Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK – Update

We placed AGTK in our reports multiple times earlier this month, and the stock has responded with quite a nice performance in the intervening weeks since those tags.

Shortly after our most recent mention, we’d observe a low of .003 followed by a steady ramp-up at first, giving way to more significant increases this week. It culminated in a high of .0121 yesterday which marked an overall swing of 303% in fewer than a dozen sessions!

Based on its heightening activity, we’ll continue to leave a slot open for AGTK on our radar screens moving forward.
