Walmart Deal Sends KNOS Soaring

Kronos Advanced Technologies, Inc. KNOS – Update

We also wanted to circle back around to KNOS, which we have been tracking for quite some time, and updated readers on in Monday’s report. As we mentioned, we had already seen more than a 2000% run beginning with our initial coverage in April, and were anticipating another opportunity to come around after the stock had pulled back to .123 two Fridays ago, and began climbing again. Thanks to a deal with Walmart, we were able to call this one to a tee.

Our exact words were “we will be on the lookout for the stock to test and potentially break past its previous high .24, especially in the light of the following new report out this morning linking the company to Walmart.”

Yesterday, KNOS vindicated our expectations as it hit a new high of .45. That marks a two week upswing of 266% and from our initially observed low of .011 following our April report, it represents an incredible increase of 3990%


FireEye, Inc. FEYE – Update

FireEye was the main earnings reporter that was catching our attention yesterday in the premarket, so we featured a dual pronged options attack with the FEYE Weekly $14-15 Calls & 08/14 $15.50-16 Calls in our premarket report.

Both sets turned out to be excellent calls, even as some of the bigger names on the earnings calendar failed to provide the type of price action we’re always after. Here are the intraday gains provided by the activity in FEYE:

FEYE Weekly $14-15 Calls
$14: .69-2.25 (+226%)
$14.50: .51-1.73 (+239%)
$15: .25-1.30 (+380%)

FEYE 08/14 $15.50-16 Calls
$15.50: .56-1.15 (+105%)
$16: .45-.97 (+116%)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OSTK Update & More

Overstock.com, Inc. OSTK

On Friday, we identified a  pair of options targets for OSTK, the 10/04 $15.50 & 16 Calls. Despite falling to the low side toward the end of the day, there were some early opportunities for our designated contracts.

The $15.50 Calls traded up from 1.50-1.90 for a notable 27% intraday move, while the $16 Calls traded in a range from 1.40-1.96 (+40%).

With the late session dip, OSTK fell considerably, but we view this as no less than a buy-in opportunity on these very same contracts. We like the chances of seeing a quick rebound, and the potential for further gains out of these plays over the course of the next trading week or two.

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.
