Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BBBY Options & More

Bed Bath & Beyond, Inc. BBBY

The last time we were mentioning Bed Bath & Beyond, was back in January when the stock was trading just below $14. It’s been in a solid uptrend more recently, reaching over 19.50 yesterday. However, we’re getting a bearish feeling from the chart now, especially following the company’s earnings report for the 4th quarter yesterday postmarket.

The company came fairly close to analyst expectations on earnings, yet recorded same-store sales declines for the seventh quarter in a row as e-commerce players like Amazon continue to horn in on brick-and-mortar reliant chains.

We are going to track a bearish options idea into the end of the week for this chain, with the BBBY Weekly $17.50-17 Puts, with the stock already being down a couple of dollars from yesterday’s highs here in the premarket.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Idea

Centene Corp. CNC

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, we designated a pair of contracts to watch in the CNC chain toward the end of March, with the CNC 09/20 $50 & $55 Calls.

Since that time the stock has been in a near-continual uptrend, and after yet another bullish session yesterday, we have new highs to report on our ideas. The $50 Calls have now traded in a range from 1.80-9.50, amounting to a total move of 428%. The $55 Calls have been on an insane run, and they have thus far traded up from .31-6.70. That works out to a rise of 2,061% in a span of only nine trading sessions.


BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust BPT

Weve got another options chain that we ‘d like to signal some longer term calls in as well. BPT fell off a cliff yesterday, and while it may have slightly further to fall before reversing, the chart shows a history of rapid recoveries whenever the stock is beaten back as it has been this week.

We’re going to designate the BPT 05/17 $22.50-25 Calls as two contracts of interest and begin to track them over the days and weeks ahead.

Options Reviews

General Mills, Inc. GIS – We were looking at the General Mills chain beginning
on Wednesday morning, when we designated the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls as targets of interest for the week. We got some very nice profit opportunities out of that set, with plenty of time for the possibility to realize further gains.  The $47.50 Calls rose from a low of 1.40-3.55, an upswing of 154% The $50′s traded in a range from .27-1.47, which works out to a huge jump of 444%
_____

Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI  – On Thursday morning, we added the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls to our pool of ideas, and those really made a splash as well. In the two session span following our alert, we witnessed a move up from a low of 1.15 to a high of 4.30. That represents a rapid increase of 274%
_____

Revlon, Inc. REV - Finally, on Friday, we continued our streak of new ideas with an extended-term idea on Revlon. A pair of big insider buys was what led us to place these on watch. We’ll continue to track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls. For Friday, they each managed modest increases, with the $22.50′s running from 2.55-2.90 (+14%) and the $25′s going from 1.25-2.00 (+60%). These will be on our radar for quite some time, but got off to a nice start.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Closing Out a Strong Week

Kandi Technologies Group Inc. KNDI – Recap

On Wednesday morning, we were looking at a pair of contracts in the KNDI options chain. We did see multi-bag gains out of those as mentioned in yesterday’s morning report, but perhaps just as big of a story is the move that KNDI stock itself managed in the two sessions since that alert.

From a low of 7.16 Wednesday morning, to yesterday’s high of 9.21, KNDI has managed to rattle off a 29% session-over-session increase. That’s a heck of a two-day swing for a $7+ stock, and will keep our interest as we close out the week.

This move was catalyzed by the US approval of two of the Chinese company’s electric vehicles.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the domestic go-ahead to KNDI’s Model EX3 and Model K22 electric cars.


Dominos Pizza, Inc. DPZ – Recap

We went bearish with some Dominos Puts yesterday, following a particularly bad quarterly release by the company in yesterday’s premarket earnings dump. Earning and revs were big misses, with same store sales making only a marginal jump.

We signaled our interest in tracking the DPZ Weekly $270-260 Puts and both of those sets of contracts recorded solid intraday moves to the upside, of which traders could have taken advantage. The $270 Puts ran from 12.02 to 20.50, marking a 71% rip, while the $260 surged even more, trading in a range from 4.99-12.84 for an intraday gain of 177%

Fresh Options Ideas – In addition to continuing to keep an eye on the previously mentioned plays, we will also add to the pool with another couple of ideas today. In these cases we are going to go bearish.

Domino’s whiffed on earnings and revenue in its premarket release today, while same-store sales increased only slightly. Meanwhile, the high profile injury to Duke basketball player Zion Williamson last night caused by a Nike shoe malfunction, has the potential to have a deleterious effect on Nike’s stock in the near term.

Domino’s Pizza Inc. DPZ Weekly $270-260 Puts
Nike, Inc. NKE 03/15 $84-83.50 Puts
