Black Friday Short Week Wrap-Up

Short Week Wrap-Up

We hope everyone enjoyed the midweek Thanksgiving break, and as we gear up to finish out the week with what we expect to be a relatively subdued half-day of trading, we just wanted to highlight the potential gains off of our fresh options ideas from Wednesday’s premarket report.

The session was majorly bullish for stocks as a whole, so our SPY calls were spot on and worked out very nicely, and we saw significant intraday gain opportunities from our targets in the BOX chain as well.

Here are the total daily gains that were on the table for these ideas:

SPY Weekly $314-315 Calls 
$314 Calls – Range: .55-1.43 – Max Gain: 160%
$314.50 Calls – Range: .23-.94 – Max Gain: 309%
$315 Calls – Range: .09-.50 – Max Gain: 456%
_____

BOX Weekly $16-17 Calls
$16 Calls – Range: 1.80-2.90 – Max Gain: 61%
$17 Calls – Range: .95-1.91 – Max Gain: 101%


Fresh Options Idea

The earnings calendar is fairly empty this morning, but we did spot a potential play on the GIL chart. The stock is about to begin to fill a massive gap on the chart, while having just received an analyst upgrade.

We are going to put the Gildan Activewear, Inc. GIL 01/17 $25-35 Calls on watch for what could be a huge opportunity in the coming weeks.

GOL Weekly $16 Calls
KPTI 01/17 $17.50-20 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CAPR Recap & More

Capricor Therapeutics, Inc. CAPR

We included CAPR in yesterday’s premarket watchlist after noticing some abnormal volume and price action in the stock during the previous session. Prior to that it had been trading sideways for more than a month.

It turns out our alert came just in the nick of time, because yesterday CAPR exploded for its largest single-session spike in years. The stock opened at 1.50 and managed to run as high as 2.65, filling a good portion of the large gap on its chart, left in May. It came out to an intraday push of 77% which came on monstrous volume of just under 80 times the monthly average.


SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY)

We discussed tracking the SPY Weekly $249.50 & $250 Calls as conditions appeared favorable to another bullish day for the market in general. The fund made a pretty solid move during the session, and that produced some decent opportunities in our designated contracts.

The $249.50’s traded from .55 to a high of .83 (+51%), while the $250’s did slightly better with a run from .29 to .49 (+69%) just before lunch hour.


Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We last tagged HMNY on August 15th, and after a solid run, the stock went under consolidation for a few weeks. However, the downturn ended at the end of last week and the move it’s made since has been pretty impressive.

HMNY saw a low of 2.42 on Thursday, and yesterday the stock achieved a new high of 6.40. That represents a four -session upswing of 164% while volume over the same period has been significantly increased.


HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. HTGM

We’re interested to track HTGM today after the company announced the issuance of two method patents on its technology. We’re seeing a moderate gap-up in the premarket, but there still appears to be the good chance for a solid upside here. The stock does have a recent history containing a huge spike to more than $12.

We’ll place it on watch, and look for it to establish a string of sessions recording higher highs and higher lows moving forward.
