Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Retail Focus

Retail Focus

Macy’s, Inc. M - With the holiday season fast approaching, we’ll be on the lookout for retail plays with good upside potential, and Macy’s could be a good fit in that regard.

You can take a look at the chart below and see that the stock has just begun to show signs of a rebound after getting absolutely hammered earlier this month. Indicators suggest that the stock is rather oversold.

We’re going to radar a set of longer-term contracts, the M 11/17 $23 Calls, which should see a nice move if the stock can indeed regain the ground it’s lost over the past few weeks. There’s also a gap on the chart to the $28 area, the filling of which would propel those contracts to huge gains.


______

JC Penney Co. Inc. JCP - Another retailer we’ve talked about many times in the past, particularly leading up to and during the holidays, is JCP.

Similar to the above mentioned play, the stock took a punishing hit to its PPS over the past few weeks, and has shown the beginnings of a rebound. It has an even larger gap on the chart, and a chance to fill it even quicker.

The stock itself could end up being a good recovery play, but we’ll also want to put a couple sets of options contracts on watch as well, with the JCP 11/17 $4 and 4.50 Calls.


______

More Retail Ideas – Also in the retail sector, and each with premarket earnings beats, are American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO and Express, Inc. EXPR. We’re going to radar the AEO Weekly $12 & 12.50 Calls, and the EXPR 09/15 $6 & $7 Calls.


Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. ZN

We also wanted to quickly update readers on the performance of ZN, after it was a topic of discussion in yesterday’s premarket report. While the stock didn’t break out by any means, it did trade from a low of 2.95 to a high of 3.42 for a modest 16% intraday move.

It did, however, manage to close just two cents below its high of day, so we’ll have it on continued watch this midweek, looking for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays & More

DISH Network Corp DISH

There’s a possible bottom-bounce opportunity brewing with DISH, with the stock posting its first bullish session after a string of five consecutive days of getting beaten to a pulp.

We want to signal a range of September calls that would stand to make considerable moves if the stock can mount an extended recovery. We like the volatility that DISH provides, and will be looking for it to test the 200DMA (61.38) while  tracking the DISH 09/08 $60-62.50 Calls over the days and weeks ahead.  .


Snap, Inc. SNAP

This is another stock that’s gotten beaten up recently, but instead of a handful of sessions, SNAP has been under consolidation for more than two months. In fact, the vast majority of the time since its IPO has been spent on the backslide.   It only recently began to record higher lows off of its newly established all-time low, and indicators on the chart suggest that a more convincing rebound could be in the cards.

We’ll want to pay close attention to the company’s post-market earnings call this afternoon, which could be a turning point in the early history of this relatively new stock.


Post-Earnings Gappers

We’re seeing premarket gap-ups for all three of the following stocks. We’re going to issue some options ideas for each chain to watch for day trades and or swing trades into tomorrow, depending on the activity we observe.  

Macy’s, Inc. M – Weekly $22-24 Calls
Perrigo Co. plc PRGO – Weekly $73-75 Calls
Canada Goose Holdings, Inc. GOOS – Weekly $19-20.50 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Success, MNKD & More

Eleven BioTherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

Out of four focal points for yesterday morning’s premarket report, three of them worked out very nicely. From the stock side of things, we had EBIO, which we designated as a potential momentum play after noticing it picking up steam in prior sessions.

Our hunch was good, as the stock ran from a low of 2.31 to 2.955 (+28%) on roughly nine times its monthly average volume. It was a relatively modest gain, yet we did see a temporary breach of the 50DMA as well as a strong close at 2.78. It was a solid enough performance to warrant further observation.

______

MannKind Corp. MNKD - We drew attention to MNKD on Wednesday morning and just want to provide an update on its excellent progress so far. In the past two sessions since then it has traded up from a low of .44 to .68 (+55%) in two bullish sessions. We’ll be looking for a possible continuation of that trend.


Options Winners

The other two winners from yesterday were both successful options ideas that we formulated on the heels of strong earnings reports, and the gain opportunities there were quite a bit larger.

We’ve come to routinely expect huge multi-bag intraday runs when we hit on a good post-earnings idea, and that’s just what we got from every single contract we signaled.

Macy’s, Inc. M – Weekly $38-41 Calls

$38 Calls – Range: 1.52-3.85 – Max Gain: 153%
$38.50 Calls – Range: 1.27-2.90 – Max Gain: 128%
$39 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.97 – Max Gain: 191%
$39.50 Calls – Range: .81-2.25 – Max Gain: 178%
$40 Calls – Range: .50-1.90 – Max Gain: 280%
$40.50 Calls – Range: .30-1.47 – Max Gain: 390%
$41 Calls – Range: .15-1.16 – Max Gain: 673%

______

Fresh Idea - Nvidia Corp. NVDA – Nvidia beat on earnings in a post-market release yesterday, and to correspond with the activity we’re observing here in the premarket, we want to highlight the NVDA Weekly $77-80 Calls* for potential daytrades.

*Our regular readers are well aware of the warnings we post every time we issue an alert, but for everyone just joining us, please be aware that trading options contracts with a weekly expiration on a Friday is a highly risky proposition, and should only be undertaken by expert traders!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CCTC, EBIO, Options & More


Potential Momentum Plays

Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. CCTC - In a characteristic move, CCTC repeated the history of its own chart, as a stock that seemingly likes to make volatile swings to the upside. It breached its 50DMA in a bullish manner yesterday, so we are going to tag it for observation today in the event of continued momentum.

The chart is showing a series of ripening indicators as well. In order to hold our attention, CCTC will need to maintain support at or above that 50DMA, currently at .153 on any pullbacks.


______

Eleven BioTherapeutics, Inc. EBIO
– EBIO is a stock we’ve come back to on several occasions in the past, and today, we want to circle around to point out its current status as a bottom-bouncing momentum play.

It hit four-month lows just five sessions ago, and has made a decent effort at a rebound since then, so we’ll keep it on watch for the possibility of further recovery.


Options Ideas

We’ve got a couple of earnings-related options ideas this morning as well. As our regular readers are surely aware, post-earnings options trading is one of our favorite and most reliable ways of rooting out rapid short term gain opportunities.

Shake Shack, Inc. SHAK – Weekly $35.50-37 Calls

Macy’s, Inc. M – Weekly $38-41 Calls

______

Reminder: We’re also still tracking our idea on Starbucks from last Friday, the SBUX Weekly $53.50-55 Calls. The stock has traded up to nearly $55 in the premarket today, so we’ll be open to the possibility of seeing our gains extended there.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WOLV Video Chart, Options & More

Wolverine Technologies Corp. WOLV

We want to place WOLV on watch this morning for a couple of reasons. Apart from coming off of a recent support level and showing some bottom-bounce activity, we also like the involvement of David Chalk, formerly of the TV show, Tech Talk with David Chalk.

David recently signed a purchase agreement with the company, with plans for him to come on board as a tech consultant once the transaction is completed, so someone of his notoriety putting skin in the game on WOLV definitely gets our attention. And, as we said, the stock is also interesting from a technical standpoint.

View the following video presentation of the chart going over what makes WOLV an attractive play at the moment:
