Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY, SPOT Calls

OPTIONS RECAP

We had a number of options contracts that we were tracking on Friday, and ended up having good fortune with two out of the three sets that we were watching. Both the SPY and Ford enjoyed bullish intraday moves after the markets themselves fell briefly first thing in the morning, followed by an entire day of ascent and a very strong close. Here are the highest possible gains that could have been achieved on the back of our ideas.

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $291.50-292 Calls
$291.50 Calls – Range:
.45-1.91  – Max Gain: 324%
$2292 Calls – Range: .26-1.49 – Max Gain: 473%

Ford Motor Co. F Weekly $9.50-10 Calls

$9.50 Calls – Range: .45-.95 – Max Gain: 111%
$10 Calls – Range: .07-.46  – Max Gain: 557%

It finished out one heck of a trading week for our options calls, of which we had at least seven separate sets of ideas that produced multi-bag gain opportunities, as you are welcome to confirm in our archives.
_____

FRESH IDEA: Based on the nature of Friday’s market activity, including that very strong close, we are going to bank on another session of bullish activity for the markets at large, and put the SPY 04/29(today) $292.50-293.50 Calls on watch.
_____

Bonus Idea: SPOT Weekly $140-142 Calls



Axsome Therapeutics, Inc. AXSM

We designated AXSM as a stock to watch in our report on March 26th, and after one full month of trading, we wanted to return to review its performance over that span.

From its low following our alert, which came in at 12.76, the stock has cruised steadily up to Friday’s new high of 18.13. That represented a one month upswing amounting to a total move of 42%

Moleculin Biotech, Inc. MBRX – Recap

Following the FDA fast-tracking of the company’s Annamycin drug, yesterday morning we noted that this stock we began tracking late last month had risen by 89% (.7772-1.47) right on the heels of the good news. It would appear that the development took some time to fully filter through the investment community, because even we weren’t prepared for the enormous continuation of momentum that has now transpired.

From yesterday’s 1.25 low-of-day, MBRX shot up like a rocket and ultimately reached a new peak of 3.15. That worked out to a single session surge of 152% From our initially observed low, it represents an increase of 305% in just over three weeks of trading. This has not turned out to be our biggest stock-only call of the year so far just yet, but it is right up there among the best.

Moleculin Biotech, Inc. MBRX – Recap

We highlighted this play at the end of last month, and shortly thereafter we would observe a low of .7772. Last week, MBRX reached a new high of 1.47, which translates to a gain of 89% in roughly three weeks’ time.

The move, which filled the entirety of the topside gap on the chart, was due to Thursday’s revelation that the company’s drug Annamycin had received the FDA’s Approval for fast-track designation. At 4:30PM on Wednesday, MBRX officials will conduct a call to discuss this and other developments on a live webcast, which will be available in the Investor Relations section at www.moleculin.com.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AYTU Update & More

Aytu BioScience, Inc. AYTU Yesterday morning, we were just discussing AYTU and the modest progress the stock had made since we flagged it as a bottom play in Wednesday’s premarket report. Not only had it displayed a cherry bottom setup, but we noted a string of insider buysat the time as well.Following that report, we would witness a low of .4118, and over the course of the ensuing four trading days, the stock has made a noteworthy move and continues to exhibit signs that more gains could be in store.

Yesterday it reached .61, which represents a run of 48% in under a week. It did so on record volume, so we’re definitely eager to see where the momentum could carry this play that was already on its way back up.


InspireMD, Inc. NSPR

NSPR has been in real trouble in 2018, losing ground at seemingly every turn and unable to get out of its own way. However, through a combination of a South American breakthrough announcement for two of the companies drugs, and being just plain oversold, we’re seeing a marginal premarket gap-up and will want to observe for a more sustained rebound.

The news was pertaining to NSPR receiving regulatory approval from the goverment of Peru for its CGuard™ Embolic Prevention System (EPS) and MGuard Prime™ products. Peru has a population of more than 30 million people. (>>View PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WMT Calls & More

Walmart, Inc. WMT

After a period of a couple of trading sessions where WMT has taken considerable abuse on the chart. After appearing to be gearing up to make an impressive run, the stock gapped down considerably on Tuesday and the backslide persisted through yesterday.

This major selloff has brought the stock down to its lowest PPS since November, and had us thinking about a range of calls to slate for observation in the days and weeks ahead. We’re going to signal the WMT 03/16 $90-93 Calls, which should be in line for some solid activity if Walmart mounts the recovery that, at this point, looks very possible.


Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. HTZ

We would like to put HTZ on watch as a possible bounce play this morning. As you can see on the included chart snapshot, the stock is giving off a strong double-bottom signal, and just fell below its 200DMA yesterday.

We’re going to monitor the activity here closely, because as you can see, there is a considerable amount of room to run to the upside, and the stock has been approaching heavily oversold territory.

Avis Budget Group, Inc. CAR

While we’re on the subject of car rental agencies, our eye has also been caught by Avis, whose stock just came down to an area of trendline support, and also posted a Q4 earnings beat.

We’re going to look for opportunities in the CAR 03/16 $42-44 Calls in coming sessions.
