Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IZEA Recap & More

Izea Worldwide, Inc. IZEA

IZEA is a stock that we have been following for several weeks. We highlighted this play back on August 12th, and would subsequently observe a low of 1.04. In two definitive pushes, the stock has gained quite a bit of ground over roughly the past six weeks.

Yesterday it managed a new high of 3.00, which marks an overall increase from its mid-August low of 188%


Snap, Inc. SNAP

We’re always scraping the barrel for a good bottom play, and we want to place SNAP on watch for just that reason this morning.

A thirteen dollar stock just two months ago as you can see on the included chart snapshot, SNAP has now fallen below the eight dollar mark, and is egregiously oversold at the present time. We’ll keep tabs on this play moving forward, as a rebound appears imminent at some point in the near future.



Comstock Mining Inc. LODE

Lastly, we want to backtrack to Monday’s report, in which we designated LODE as a stock to watch.  It certainly was something to see this week as it ran from a low of .1201 to as high as .315. That’s a 162% intraweek push.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Updates

UPDATES ON RECENT WINNERS

New Age Beverages, Inc. NBEV – Early last month, we caught NBEV before it went on a ride from 1.50 to 10.34, a gain of 589% but thanks to some excellent volatility, it wasn’t the last we’d hear from the stock. Following that, NBEV saw a pullback off of those highs to a low of 3.61 before retuirning to 8.95.

That works out to a 148% swing, and we’re going to be very interested to see if it can make another run and possible even surpass its previous swing high, mentioned above.
______

India Globalization Capital, Inc. IGC – We caught the bottom on IGC very well, highlighting the play in our report on September 10th and seeing a subsequent low of 1.03. Yesterday, to kick off the fresh trading week the stock reached an impressive new high of 9.24. That registers as an excellent three-week upswing of 897%
______

Fate Therapeutics, Inc. FATE – Speaking of solid bottom-plays, we want to track back a little further to FATE, which we signaled for observation 8 weeks ago on August 1st. Following that report, the stock traded for as little as 9.001, and after a steady bullish incline for essentially the entire time between then and now, FATE has reached new highs at 16.9365, a highly respectable increase of 88%


Tesla Inc TSLA – Update

We also signaled the TSLA Weekly $300-310 Calls yesterday morning, and so far those ideas have worked out great. The single session gains available to traders on the day were as follows:

$300 Calls
– Range: 11.10-17.00 – Max Gain: 53%
$302.50 Calls – Range: 10.00-15.15 – Max Gain: 52%
$305 Calls – Range: 8.65-13.70 - Max Gain: 58%

$310 Calls – Range: 6.60-10.96 – Max Gain: 66%

Tesla is gapping up today and looks to be ready to push these contracts deep in the money, so we’ll expect to see these ranges and possible gains extended even further from here.

With a major category-4 hurricane currently inbound for the Carolina coastline this week, we’re also going to highlight some plays in Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement, which tend to see surges in the wake of storms big enough to require extensive cleanup and repairs. According to all predictive models, Hurricane Florence definitely fits that bill.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CSX Review & More

CSX Corp. CSX – Options Review

We presented our readers with an options idea concerning CSX yesterday morning in the wake of the company’s solid quarterly earnings report, the CSX Weekly $65-67.50 Calls.

What followed was an exceptionally bullish session for the railroad giant, which facilitated some really nice intraday multi-bag gain opportunities.

Not surprisingly, big moves were exhibited by every single contract in our designated range of six sets:

$65 Calls– Range: 1.64-4.00 – Max Gain: 144%
$65.50 Calls – Range: 1.42-3.54 – Max Gain: 149%

 Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. WBA – Recap

Also included in our morning report yesterday were the WBA 08/17 $67.50 & $70 Calls, and those too enjoyed some notable intraday gains for the session.

Despite selecting calls with August expiration, the payoff to this idea was all but instantaneous, with each of our two ideas logging significant intraday runs to the upside. The $67.50′s traded in a range from .93 to 1.45, a gains of 133% while the $70′s went from .40-.65, which works out to a gain of 63%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HEAR Recap, Bottom Play & More

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR

We do our best to keep up with all of the stocks we mention in our daily premarket reports, and this morning, we want to swing back to HEAR, which we were signaling for observation back on April 9-10th. Shortly thereafter, the stock traded for as little as 2.76, before beginning a steady month-long bull run.

Yesterday, HEAR attained a new high of 7.48, marking an excellent move up of 171% inside of the past month! Cheers go out to anyone who might’ve been able to take advantage of this very fine call.


Vista Outdoor, Inc. VSTO

We ran across VTO on our routine morning scan today, and want to include it as a high-potential bottom watch play. Whenever we see a stock this beaten back, and so egregiously oversold, we immediately go into rebound watch mode.

To help us take advantage of a possible recovery, which is overdue at this point, we’re going to want to signal an options idea to keep watch over in the days and/or weeks ahead- the VSTO 08/17 $15 Calls.
