Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Stock Updates & More

DURRECT Corp. DRRX

We began tracking DRRX last month, with our initial alert coming on the morning of 08/07. Subsequent to that report, the stock recorded a low of 1.22, and yesterday, reached a new high of 2.46.

That works out to a clean double-bag move of 102% in a matter of six weeks. The stock has been on the rise for two months now, so we’ll be interested to see where it will ultimately find itself.


Avadel Pharma Inc. AVDL

We freshly tagged AVDL in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and while it didn’t make our heads spin, the stock did produce a solid intraday gain on our first day of tracking it.

From a low of 4.13, the stock reached a high of 5.37 on the day, which registers as a 30% upswing. We’ll continue to keep it on our watchlist as we head into midweek.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Ideas

Fresh Options Ideas

As we head through the middle of the week, we’ve got a solid group of companies dropping their quarterly reports. That’s our go-to scenario when searching for short-term options plays, and we have a couple of standouts in which we’re going to form some ideas to track.

Abbott Laboratories, Inc. ABT
Abbott posted a beat on earnings this morning, as well as bumping up its full year guidance, and is going green here in the premarket. We’re going to be tracking the ABT Weekly $83.50 Calls.
___

CSX Corp. CSX
In the case of CSX we’re seeing the exact opposite effect. The company’s Q2 earnings fell short, and it also slashed guidance. In correspondence with that, we’re going to be placing the CSX Weekly $77-76 Puts on watch.
___

CarMax, Inc. KMX
CarMax didn’t report earnings, but nevertheless we like the look of the KMX 07/26 $86 Calls this morning, so we’re going to put them on the radar as well.


Pintech Technology Holdings Ltd. PT 

For one more item in this morning’s brief report, we want to put PT on bottom-bounce watch. Tthe stock is exhibiting a strong double bottom, and has some decent volatility potential.

This is just the type of technical setup we routinely scan for when looking for potential  bottom plays. We’ll be interested to see how the next several sessions plays out for it.

CarMax, Inc. KMX – Recap 

To open things up this week, we’re going to go over the performance of a fresh options ideas from Friday morning’s premarket report. We were tracking the  KMX Weekly $85-87.50 Calls and we met with some very good fortune in the form of multi-bag, single session gain opportunities.

All four of the contract sets we watching provided enormous intraday chances, which wasn’t surprising, given the huge help we had last week from a surge in the markets. A strong earnings report from KMX did the rest, and we finished out the week with these superb gains: 

$85 Calls – Range: .48-2.55 – Max Gain: 431%
$86 Calls – Range: .27-1.73 – Max Gain: 541%
$87 Calls – Range: .15-1.09 – Max Gain: 627%
$87.50 Calls – Range: .10-.76 – Max Gain: 660%

Fresh Ideas: 


Seres Therapeutics, Inc. MCRB 

We’re currently very interested in MCRB for multiple reasons. The stock recently touched down on a new annual low, and at the same time, a company director purchased a huge block of shares which amounted to a significant percentage of the overall market cap.

Since then the stock has been trending off of that bottom, with just the sort of volatility potential we’re always after. In addition to the stock itself being a solid candidate for a recovery play, we will also place the MCRB 07/19 $2.50 Calls on watch.

Adobe, Inc. ADBE – Update

ADBE continued its incredible performance just as we said it would in yesterday morning’s premarket report.  We had already tracked our idea, the ADBE Weekly $285-290 Calls to gains roughly in the area of 150-230% on Wednesday.

The updated figures after yesterday’s huge session are very impressive indeed. Here are the total possible gains that options daytraders could have netted off of our alert. 

$289 Calls – Range: 2.94-17.49 – Max Gain: 495%
$289.50 Calls – Range: 1.83-14.68 – Max Gain: 702%
$290 Calls – Range: 1.07-12.52 – Max Gain: 1070%

This is the reason that we spend most of our time these days focusing on quick-strike options ideas. The short-term gain potential exceeds even that of the OTC Markets, which used to be our primary area of focus, many years ago.
_____

Speaking of options success, the other fresh ideas we included in yesterday’s morning report also produced some fantastic intraday gain chances:

Commercial Metals Co. CMC Weekly $16-17 Calls
$289 Calls – Range:.45-1.30 – Max Gain: 189%
$289 Calls – Range: .10-.40  – Max Gain: 300%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Wrapping Up a Solid Week

Five Below Inc. FIVE

Fresh for yesterday morning’s premarket report, we jumped on the FIVE options chain with some quick-strike ideas in the FIVE Weekly $125-127 Calls and after an impressive $5+ intraday run for the stock itself, all three of those ideas bore fruit instantly. We wanted to recap the performance this morning, as well as update our idea for this play.

$125 Calls – Range: 2.40-5.00 – Max Gain: 108%
$126 Calls – Range: 2.18-3.30 – Max Gain: 51%
$127 Calls – Range: 1.64-3.00 – Max Gain: 83%

With FIVE gapping up again in the premarket today, we expect to see further gains from the above-mentioned contract sets, but we also want to roll up our potential strike prices a bit to follow the money a little closer. We’ll include the FIVE 04/05 $128-129 Calls in our pool of ideas going forward.


FRESH IDEAS:

BlackBerry Ltd. BB – Fresh off of the scanner this morning, we’ve got BlackBerry making waves in the premarket after a solid beat on revs and profits, in a quarterly release that included record software IP licensing. We’re going to keep an eye on the BB Weekly $9-10 Calls*.
_____

CarMax, Inc. KMX - CarMax also reported this morning, and it too is moving the needle in the premarket on the heels of a beat on profits. We’re going to add the KMX Weekly $65.50-67 Calls* to our tracklist for today as well.

*DO NOT attempt to trade weekly contracts on a Friday unless you an advanced level trader with access to disposable funds!
