Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TSLA Recap & More

Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea
-
TSLA stock was running hard after KeyBanc analysts predicted a 50% rise in Model 3 deliveries, and we entered the mix yesterday morning with a set of options ideas to take advantage of the situation. We certainly hope that our words didn’t fall upon deaf ears, because of the five contracts in the range we slated for potential quick strike trades, all five produced single-session gains of over 100%

Our designated targets were the TSLA Weekly 337.50-347.50 Calls and we were very impressed with the total potential gains made available by all of those contracts:

$337.50 Calls – Range: 8.00-19.00 – Max Gain: 138%
$340 Calls – Range: 6.76-17.10 – Max Gain: 153%
$342.50 Calls – Range: 5.75-15.16 – Max Gain: 164%
$345 Calls – Range: 4.97-13.50 – Max Gain: 172%
$347.50 Calls – Range: 4.20-11.90 – Max Gain: 183%

From what we’ve seen thus far, we have reason to believe that we may see some further opportunities in these ideas before the week is out, so we’ll allow them to keep their slots on our radar screens for the time being.


H&R Block, Inc. HRB – Fresh Idea

As a fresh options trading idea this morning, we want to bring attention to HRB, which despite turning in a beat on earnings yesterday in the post market, is taking a beating here in early trading.

Combined with the fact that the stock was already looking toppy and about to breach into heavily overbought territory, we’re ready to look at a range of puts, to take advantage of what may be a significant course correction to the low side. We’ll be tracking the HRB Weekly $26-24 Puts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CANN Recap & More

General Cannabis Corp. CANN

To kick off this week, we sent out a reminder going over the extensive list of cannabis plays we published on April 4th in anticipation of Friday’s 04/20 Holiday celebrations and connected stock activity.

We expect a rising tide of interest and activity in the cannabis space for the remainder of this week and beyond, during what is one of the busiest times of year for marijuana-related businesses/stocks.

We are already impressed with the move made by CANN since our initial alert and through to this week. On the 4th, following our report, CANN established its base at 2.25 and hasn’t looked back. Yesterday the stock hit 5.75, marking a two week bull run of 156% As we said, we expect to see more moves like this from the myriad cannabis plays we track on a regular basis.

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

We also want to make note of VTVT this morning after noticing a number of attractive features on the chart. Pre-existing shareholders of VTVT are certainly not happy with the events of the past few months, but as opportunistic short-term traders, it has almost everything we look for a regular basis.

In addition to being monstrously oversold, the stock has seen a rise in average volume over the past week, after a massive gap-down which you can plainly view on the snapshot below. What makes the scenario so interesting, is that the company will need to reattain and hold the 1.00/share or risk involuntary delisting from the NASDAQ. With all these factors playing in, we’ll definitely want to put this one on extended watch in the event it attempts to fill even a portion of that gap.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KOOL, TIF Recaps & More

Endocyte, Inc. ECYT

We initially took notice of ECYT on Monday morning just as the company announced it had completed a worldwide license for its prostate cancer treatment now moving into Phase-3 development.

The stock made a solid 130% rip from 1.63 to 3.75 that morning, but it was only just getting started. Yesterday morning the stock ran hard once again, reaching its peak at a new annual high of 6.55. That puts the total on our two-day observed increased of 302% while volume over the same period has been literally hundreds of times greater than the monthly average prior to Monday’s bombshell PR.


Tiffany & Co. TIF – Options Update

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, we’ve been tracking the TIF 10/20 $92-93 Calls since the morning of September 28th. TIF stock has maintained its gradual ascent since that time, and with that, we’ve seen the potential gains made off of our ideas grow along with it.

The following ranges represent the lows from the 28th to the highs achieved during yesterday’s session:

$92 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.20 – Max Gain: 120%
$92.50 Calls – Range: .85-2.19  – Max Gain: 158%.
$93 Calls – Range: .83-2.15 – Max Gain: 159%


Cesca Therapeutics Inc. KOOL

After including KOOL in yesterday morning’s watchlist, we watched as the stock made a very nice intraday run on the chart with the help of some positive news.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a Notice of Allowance on the company’s patent application for its proprietary method for separating target cells from blood, marrow, and other sources.

That prompted a solid boost from 3.96 to 6.44 on the day, marking an intraday push of 63% which was accompanied by the trading of 223X more shares than the monthly average!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ECYT Recap & More

Endocyte, Inc. ECYT

We took notice of ECYT yesterday morning during our routine premarket scan, and due to some abnormal activity, we decided to include it in the daily watchlist.

It turned out to be a splendid idea, with the stock ultimately recording a hugely bullish session. ECYT traded from its low of 1.63 just following the open, to its high of 3.75 just prior to the close. It worked out to a single-session rip of 130% and it came on over 180X the monthly average volume. The stock has also hit a new high of 6.07 in the premarket this morning, pushing our observed move in less than 24 hours to a whopping 272%

It was especially impressive because of the timing, which couldn’t have been any better. Prior to yesterday’s session the stock was stagnating for several months. The move was catalyzed primarily by the announcement of the completion of a worldwide license on the company’s prostate cancer treatment, which will be moving on to Phase III development.

Rigel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. RIGL

Speaking of solidly-timed calls on pharma plays, we also caught RIGL and included it in yesterday’s premarket report. It didn’t see the type of move that the previously mentioned stock, but got off to a respectable start.

RIGL traded in a range from 2.85-3.42, a modest rise of 20%, but did so on nearly 17X the monthly average volume, and closed near its high of day. We’ll continue to observe this play to see if it can establish a sustained uptrend.


Capricor Therapeutics, Inc. CAPR

We were just updating our readers yesterday morning on the moves CAPR had made since we had alerted it onSeptember 20th from its low of 1.80.

What followed was another nice session for the stock, which ran to a new high of 4.25; a total increase of 136% in a span of just eight trading days.



Tiffany & Co. TIF – Options Update

We also want to quickly update readers on our TIF options ideas that we submitted on the morning of September 28th, the TIF 10/20 $92-93 Calls. The stock has been in a continuous bullish pattern since then, and those calls made some pretty nice gains in the process.

$92 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.13 – Max Gain: 113%
$92.50 Calls – Range: .85-1.74  – Max Gain: 105%.
$93 Calls – Range: .83-1.88 – Max Gain: 127%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Double-Bottom Watchlist & More

Double-Bottom Watchlist

We like to look for potential rebound plays in stocks that are displaying a double bottom formation on the chart, and we’ve got three such candidate to add to a recovery watchlist this morning.

InVivo Therapeutics Holding Corp. NVIV, Stein Mart,Inc. SMRT, and Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc. SPWH have all begun to trend off of a level of support that has been established on one or more previous occasions. We’ll want to monitor this trio in the days and weeks ahead for possible sustained recoveries.




StarBucks Corp. SBUX – Options Idea

Shares of SBUX really came crashing down this morning, all the way to the $55-level, the lowest PPS since March. We’ll be looking to take advantage of a possible forthcoming rebound when the smoke clears.

SBUX has demonstrated solid support in the $54-area earlier this year, so we’ll look for it to hold there or above on this plummet that comes even as analysts are reporting a good outlook.

Once a rebound begins to materialize, we could see some noteworthy activity in the SBUX 08/18 $54-55 Calls.
