Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Review

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – AAPL beat on earnings as well as kicking off sales on the iPhone X, and two out of three of the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* we signaled for possible daytrades ended up recording some nice moves on the day.

Our first order of business to kick off the fresh week is to recap those moves followed by another set of winners we chose on Friday.

The AAPL $170 Calls ran from 1.63-3.82 for potential gains of up to 135%, while the , $172.50s made an even nicer move from .31 to 1.36 for an intraday rip of 339%

____

Arista Networks, Inc. ANET  - The set of ideas we formulated for ANET on Friday were the 11/17 $195-210 Calls, and all three sets of contracts in that range provided traders with the chance at multi-bag intraday gains.

$195 Calls – Range: 3.15-9.30 – Max Gain: 195%
$200 Calls – Range: 2.40-5.80 – Max Gain: 142%
$210 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.11 – Max Gain: 111%

Fresh Idea:

For a new potential play, we’re looking at Pandora Media, Inc. P which took a gut punch on Friday, falling to its lowest prices since early this summer. The last time the stock was this oversold, it followed it up with a run from 6.75 to to 10.00.

We’re going to go out a couple of months on the expiration and track the  P 01/19 $6 and $7 Calls so we have plenty of time to see Pandora make the rebound we’re after.


Keryx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. KERX

We’re going to put KERX on watch after noticing multiple ripe indicators this morning. The stock bounced of a recent bottom and close with strength at the 200DMA on Friday. With the MACD gearing up for a bullish cross and the RSI just about to crack the 50-line, we’ll be interested to track the activity in KERX in coming sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KORS Recap & More

Michael Kors Holdings, Ltd. KORS – Options Recap

We took the opportunity to signal some KORS options yesterday in the wake of the company’s convincing earnings beat, and it was a good thing we did, because the stock had a monstrous session, running from a low of 42.71 to a high of 45.73.

That was more than enough of an intraday push to facilitate some really great gain opportunities for anyone who looked into our highlighted ideas, the KORS Weekly $41.50-43.50 Calls. Each and every contract in our specified range erupted with big time multi-bag moves on the day exceeding 1000%, which were as follows:

$41.50 Calls – Range: .31-3.97 – Max Gain: 1180%
$42 Calls – Range: .25-3.45  – Max Gain: 1280%
$42.50 Calls – Range: .20-2.65 – Max Gain: 1225%
$43 Calls – Range: .14-2.75 – Max Gain: 1864%
$43.50 Calls – Range: .13-2.25 – Max Gain: 1630%

This was certainly one of our sharpest calls and greatest plays of the entire summer so far, so cheers go out to anyone who hopped on for the ride!


Ubiquitech Software Corp. UBQU

The UBQU newsreel has been hot over the last week, wherein we learned that the company’s HempLife subsidiary was expanding its line of CBD products to include offerings for pets, and that UBQU also launched a new division that brings it into the trendy cryptocurrency space.

Along with a confluence of recent developments, we are also seeing bottom-bounce potential in the UBQU chart at the present time.The stock has essentially been getting beaten back all summer long, so we’ll want to begin watching for the possibility of a convincing rebound in the days ahead.

American Green, Inc. ERBB

We’ve seen a great performance out of ERBB over the past few sessions, since including it in Thursday morning’s premarket report. That morning the company had announced that it had purchased the entire town of Nipton California (>>View PR) with grand plans to turn it into a cannabis tourism destination.

Since then, ERBB has seen a big move on the chart, trading up from Thursday’s low of .0012 to a new 52-week high of .0046 yesterday, marking a three-day swing of 283% on the highest volume we’ve seen out of the stock since last fall.

We’re interested to keep an eye out for updates on the Nipton project, which will apparently consist of several facets including production of CBD-infused water sourced from local aquifers. ERBB is a stock we’ve followed for years, but we’ll want to pay extra attention in the weeks and months ahead to stay on top of that story and see how it affects the stock.


Options Ideas

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX – Despite a Q2 loss and guidance reduction posted in its report, VRX, which had been on a downtrend for several sessions prior, surged in premarket trading this morning.  We’re going to want to try to take advantage of the volatility created here with a set of options to track for potential swing trades. .

We’re going to be watching the VRX Weekly $16-17.50 Calls which could see some big activity following a potential early dip from profit-taking followed by a rip to new highs.

______

Michael Kors Holdings, Ltd. KORS – On the flip-side, KORS is a stock that was experiencing a pretty good uptrend for an extended period leading up to its own earnings report, in which the company easily exceeded Wall Street’s expectations, and raised guidance.

Like the previously mentioned play, we’ll look for the classic dip-and-rip formation, and will be tracking the KORS Weekly $41.50-43.50 Calls as we head into this midweek.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VDRM, ABVG & More

ViaDerma, Inc. VDRM

VDRM was the first of a pair of plays from yesterday morning’s extended watchlist. The stock enjoyed a gradually increased PPS over the course of the entire session, and ran into the closing bell with strength.

VDRM’s daily trading range was from .0145 to .03, which works out to an intraday pop of 107%  The double-bag move came on well over twice the 3-month average volume, and as stated above, VDRM ran into the close, so we’re going to be maintaining our watch over the stock for the time being, looking for it to record higher lows and higher highs once again.


Affinity Beverage Group, Inc. ABVG

The other item of interest from yesterday’s premarket watchlist was ABVG, which also commanded a fantastic performance which led to a doubling in PPS.

ABVG ran a cool 100% from its super-subpenny low of .0007 right up to a subpenny high of .0014. Like the aforementioned play, it closed very near to its high-of-day, and did so on immense volume. To be exact, ABVG traded 13 times as many shares as its 3-month average, so we will also have room on our watchscreens for this one in sessions ahead.


Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. KORS – Options Idea

With KORS disappointing on Q3 revenue, as well as issuing shaky guidance, the stock is taking a hit in early trading here in the premarket.

Accordingly, we are going to want to signal a range of bearish options to monitor in the event that an even more precipitous decline is in the cards. We’ll be watching the KORS Weekly $39-36 Puts closely, and choosing our specific strike point/s based upon how the activity unfolds once these earnings revelations are traded upon during regular hours.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VIDG, PBR Calls & More

Vid3G, Inc. VIDG

We’re bringing VIDG up as an item of interest this morning as a stock that is coming off of its 52-week lows, and our subscribers are well aware, we’ve seen plays like these produce exponential gains on the rebound many times in the past.

Yesterday’s session saw a rapid swing up from that annual low (.01), and VIDG managed to break through its 50DMA at .015, as well as maintain that level into the close. Another session of higher highs and higher lows would go a long way toward confirming this uptrend. We’d like to see that previous area of resistance hold as support moving ahead, and based on a number of indicators on the chart, the chance for a bounce to .02 or better is certainly present; VIDG has produced spikes of that magnitude several times this year.

We illustrate this and other points on the chart in the following video, so take a look:


Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – Options

On Friday
, we mentioned our interest in the PBR $16 Calls for this week, and included a reminder in yesterday morning’s report as well. We’ve become quite adept at playing the PBR options chain over the last several months, and these alerts simply confirm that.

The action on the $16 Weekly Calls indeed proved to be significant as the trading week commenced, with yesterday’s session seeing an intraday move from .20-.38, good for gains of up to 90% A great way to kick things off for these contracts which are now in the money, and we’ll be sticking with the $16′s as the week presses on.

Should PBR approach the 16.35-level, we would then have to consider moving up our strike price.


IsoRay, Inc. ISR

We also want to throw ISR into the mix this morning, as the stock is gapping up off of a relative bottom on some exciting news this morning, so we wanted to enter this into the log as an interesting play that we’re going to want to keep an eye on.

RICHLAND, WA, Aug 05, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — IsoRay Inc. (NYSE MKT: ISR), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy and medical radioisotope applications, today announced the publication of the first major peer reviewed study showing superior results using IsoRay’s Cesium-131 seeds in the treatment of metastatic brain cancer. >>>FULL PR
