Another Successful Trading Week

Closing Out Another Week of Success

We’ve been hitting on our options ideas left and right this week, as usual. There hasn’t been many ideas that we’ve formulated which didn’t require us to turn right back around the following day and report big gains. This morning is no exception to that pattern.

Yesterday in our premarket report we submitted ideas for the options chains of both RAD and DRI, and in both cases, we had the chance to score multi-bag gains. The potential profits were as follows:

RAD Weekly $9.50-10.50 Calls
$9.50 Calls – 1.78-2.81 – Max Gain: 58%
$10 Calls – 1.12-2.42 – Max Gain: 116%
$10.50 Calls – .99-1.88 – Max Gain: 261%

DRI Weekly $115-110 Puts  
$115 Puts
– 2.67-5.90 – Max Gain: 122%
$110 Puts – .15-1.07 – Max Gain: 148%


Fresh Options Ideas: 
Winnebago Industries, Inc. WGO Weekly $50 Calls*
Scholastic Corp. SCHL Weekly $35-40 Calls*
SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY Weekly $319-320.50 Calls*

ConocoPhillips COP – Recap

We published a light newsletter yesterday morning containing just one specific idea, which was the COP Weekly $61-62.50 Calls. Fortunately, when you come up a solid plays like these, one is all you need!

Those excellent potential gains were as follows:

New Relic Inc. NEWR – Fresh Idea

We also want to bring NEWR into the mix today with a longer-term recovery idea. The stock has not only been bouncing off of recent lows, but we’ve also got some Form-4 activity at these low levels.

We’ll watch NEWR in the weeks and perhaps even months ahead, using the NEWR
12/20 $60-65 Calls
as our potential vehicle.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Reviewing Recent Winners

STOCK RECAPS

Much of our focus gets devoted to options ideas these days, as they represent the greatest chance for large short term gains for traders. However, we still scan every day for stocks, and we wanted to begin this new trading week by highlighting a few of our recent picks that have met or exceeded our expectations.

Bio-Path Holdings, Inc. BPTH – Beginning with the least recent, roughly five weeks ago on January 23rd, BPTH was a stock we tagged as a bottom-watch play. The stock essentially traded sideways for the next month, only making nominal gains. That is until the latter half of last week, when it began to heat up on Thursday, and subsequently explode on Friday, performing beautifully on the day. The stock logged the number one gain on the entire NASDAQ, as it traded up from a low of 2.65 before reaching a high of 8.84.

That works out to a mind-melting 234% single-session rise on massive volume, which is extremely uncommon for big board plays. Cheers to anyone who caught a ride on this shooting star!

Lexicon Pharma, Inc. LXRX – Appearing in Friday morning’s report was LXRX, which certainly didn’t see the level of activity as the previously mentioned play, but still posted positive figures on the day. From a low of 5.55, the stock rose as high as 7.07, marking a comparatively small but respectable intraday increase of 27%
_____

China Internet Nationwide Financial Services, Inc. CIFS – Also included in Friday’s report was CIFS, which also had a reasonably strong session following our alert. The low came in at 2.30 before the stock surged into the close at its high of day of 3.25. That represents a solid intraday gain of 41% We’ll also want to see if the stock can carry some of that momentum at the close, over to this fresh trading week.


Funko, Inc. FNKO – Options Review

We also signaled our interest in the FNKO 03/15 $22.50 & 25 Calls on Friday, and we got solid performances out of those contracts. The $22.50 Calls ran from .28-.70 for a gain of 150%
while the $25 also recorded a 150% pop from .10-.25.
