Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Recap

Yesterday we offered up our opinion that the SPY was going to get back to its bullish ways, and outlined what we felt was an attractive set of contracts in the options chain, the SPY 01/17 $277.50-279 Calls. It was for quick-strike trades only, given that they expired at 4 o’clock, and the chances were certainly there for the taking.

We said we’d be looking for the classic dip and rip pattern to present those chances for intraday flips, and our idea couldn’t have worked out much better, including our second instance of multiple thousand percent gainers in the past week! The potential single session profits on the table were as follows:

$277.50 Calls – Range: .41-2.53 – Max Gain: 517%
$278 Calls – Range: .21 -2.03 – Max Gain: 867%
$278.50 Calls – Range: .10-1.54 – Max Gain: 1440%
$279 Calls - Range: .05-1.04 – Max Gain: 1980%



The York Water Co. YORW

We also want to submit a fresh options idea this morning to coincide with an ideal chart setup on YORW. As you can see on the included snapshot, the stock began to rebound off of a multiple-bottom setup and looks as if it could easily make a run of at least a few dollars in a potential recovery.

We’ll be ready with a couple of contracts to track in the event that a more sustained upswing is in the cards, with the YORW 02/16 $30 & $35 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NEPT Recap & More

Neptune Technologies & Bioressources, Inc. NEPT

We want to follow up with NEPT this morning as the stock continues to break out to new highs. We originally slated this one for observation back on November 28th, and it has been a near-continual uptrend since then.

Subsequent to that November report, we would witness a low of 1.30, and as of the newly registered annual high of 3.10 yesterday, it marked a run of 138% in just over four weeks, with volume having been especially impressive this week. That high also represents

We will continue to track NEPT as long as it continues to register higher highs and higher lows. It is a cannabis play, but based in Canada, and thus relatively unaffected by recent statements from the DOJ which caused a selloff in many domestic pot stocks late this week.


ChinaNet Online Holdings, Inc. CNET

Speaking of multi-year highs, we tagged CNET in yesterday’s morning report, just in the nick of time to catch the first bullish activity the stock has seen since 2014. An unexpected entry into the crypto space via a new partnership (>> View PR) sent shares through the roof.

CNET traded up from a low of 2.76 and went on to hit 11.90, marking an intraday run of 331% on an all-time high number of shares traded on the day. Course correction is likely, but we’re defintely going to want to keep tabs on CNET moving forward, as dip and rip opportunities may present themselves.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ACBFF Recap & More

Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

Yesterday morning, we were just recapping the recent excellent performance of MARA since our alert on November 2nd, at which time e would observe a low of 1.19 in the stock.

MARA had run all the way up to more than $6 as of Friday, and we mentioned that the stock was gapping up even further in yesterday’s premarket. We came back for this one at an excellent time, and the stock posted yet another bullish session. It picked up right where it left off on Friday once the session commenced, with MARA running to 10.03.

That high also represented an increase of 743% from our original low from early this month. From the current point, the stock has begun to look extremely overbought, so we may need to look out for a dip-and-rip scenario to remain interested in this play moving forward. But the huge move is already on the books and we’ve been very pleased with its performance.


Aurora Cannabis, Inc. ACBFF

We also want to go over the solid run from ACBFF since we last mentioned it on November 7th. We included it as part of a cannabis commentary, wherein we urged readers to consider the current and expected strength in the Canadian marijuana markets. Aurora has long been one of our favorite Canadian pot plays, and for good reason.

On the day of our last alert on ACBFF, it traded for as little as 2.777/share, and as of yesterday’s new high of 6.65, we’ve now seen a run totaling 139% from this play. A very respectable run for the month of November. This is certain to be one of many cannabis stocks from North of the Border that we’re going to continually track with Canada’s nationwide marijuana legalization headed this way in just 8 month’s time.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DE Review & More

Deere & Co. DE – Options Review

We were following a group of ideas in the DE options chain last week, and saw some really nice activity both before and after the Thanksgiving holiday. Despite only a half-day of trading on Friday,  our targets, the Deere & Co. DE Weekly $143-146 Calls,  enjoyed new highs on the day.

We mentioned to our readers that despite seeing multi-bag gains prior to the holiday, it appeared as if they were in line for further moves to the upside, and we were absolutely correct. The following figures represent our observed lows from Wednesday morning, and the subsequent ranges to Friday’s impressive new highs:

DE Weekly $143-146 Calls
$143 Calls –
Range:  .82-4.80 – Max Gain: 485%
$144 Calls – Range:  .50-3.82 – Max Gain: 664%
$145 Calls – Range:  .30-2.80 – Max Gain: 833%
$146 Calls – Range: .19-1.86 – Max Gain: 879%

To throw into contrast the kind of success we’ve had over the past few weeks with our options trading ideas, keep in mind that these gains are mild compared to some of the ones we’ve seen!


Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

We slated MARA for observation a few weeks ago back on November 2nd, and at the time, we’d witness a low of 1.19 in the stock. Despite shortened holiday weeks being traditionally subdued, that did not apply to MARA last week as it streaked to some very pleasing new highs. On Friday’s short day, the stock ran all the way up to 6.04, marking an increase of 408% for the month of November.

This morning, it gapped up like crazy, seeing a high of 16.99 in premarket trading, which extended that range to a walloping 1328% The stock did come back down to Earth, but is still trading higher than Friday’s highs, so we’re very curious to see how the start to this fresh and full trading week is going to play out for MARA.


VelocityShares 3x Long Nat Gas ETN (UGAZ)

We also want to begin tracking the activity in UGAZ, a Natural Gas ETN. Not only is this Note approaching heavily oversold territory after having just set a new annual low on Friday, but we’re heading into the thick of the cold weather season, when such heating fuels go into much higher demand.

We’re already seeing a gap up this morning, and will put  UGAZ on an extended term bottom watch. A hypothetical return to its prices from early this summer would approach a double-bagger on the chart from here.

Allergan plc AGN – Options Recap

After posting Q3 losses but still outpacing Wall Street’s expectations yesterday, was AGN. We noticed that, combined with the fact that the stock had just come off of a new 52-week low, and we pounced with a set of options ideas that all turned in incredible moves on the day.

Fresh Idea: Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA Weekly $187.50-195


Xunlei Ltd. XNET

We don’t want the fact that we’re providing mind-numbing gains via our options ideas to overshadow a great stock call we made on Monday of last week.

We signaled our interest in XNET, and on that morning the stock saw a low of 6.06, and hasn’t looked back since. Yesterday it ran all the way to a new high of 12.10, coming in just a hair under a double-bagger at 99% in a span of eight trading days.
