Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Stocks & Options Movers

General Mills, Inc. GIS – Options Idea

As our regular readers are perfectly aware, we never stop looking for earnings related options plays. Even now, amid a relative lull in quarterly reports, we’re seeing an interesting possibility with General Mills.

After its Q4 earnings report this morning, wherein a solid beat on profits was achieved, the stock is up to the tune of 2% in the premarket. There is also a large gap on the chart to the $50-area. In this situation, we’re interested in tracking the GIS Weekly $45 & $47.50 Calls for the remainder of the week.

TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We wanted to come back to comment on TRXC this morning as well. We tagged this stock for observation just a shade over a month ago on May 23rd, and since that time, the stock has enjoyed a very solid uptrend which has led to new highs this week.

On the day of our initial alert on TRXC, we had observed a low of 2.82, and the srtock never fell below that point. Yesterday’s new high came in at 5.70, marking an upswing of 102% in a matter of four and-a-half weeks!

Kopin Corp. KOPN

For something new to put on our radars this morning we also want to make mention of KOPN. As you can on the annotated chart below, at the present time, KOPN is displaying a strong multiple bottom formation, in addition to having just reached heavily oversold territory.

We are going to place KOPN on watch in the days ans perhaps weeks ahead and will be interested to see how it behaves with this cherry of a technical setup.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SNAP, POTN Recaps & More

Potnetwork Holdings, Inc. POTN

Last week, we touched upon the fact that the February comments from the White House pertaining to stricter enforcement of federal recreational marijuana laws appear to have walked back by Jeff Sessions. That led us to reassert our interest in closely tracking pot stocks. as the cannabis industry’s feet have been pulled from the fire, so to speak.

On Friday, we tagged POTN for the first time after noticing some recent increases in volume and price action, and it was a solid idea for the day. POTN traded in a range from .038 to .055, for chances at intraday gains of up to 45% on volume of roughly three times the monthly average. It led to a strong close, just a tick under a nickel at .049. We’ll definitely want to continue to monitor this play as we kick off a new trading week.

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Recap

After noticing it in a bearish pattern, then getting word of an analyst downgrade, we went with a bearish options idea for SNAP on Friday, and it worked out quite nicely for us. We had signaled the SNAP Weekly $20 Puts for possible quick-strike trade opportunities, and it was there for the taking.

Those contracts traded up from a low of .30, and reached 1.04, an intraday move amounting to 246% Cheers to anyone who was able to use that move to their advantage!

EV Energy Partners, Inc. EVEP

Both of the above-mentioned plays appeared in our reports for the first time ever on Friday, and continuing along that track, we’re going to highlight another stock this morning that we haven’t covered before.

EVEP has the look of a bottom-bouncer as you can see from the following chart snapshot. We’re going to put this one on our watchlist as a potential extended rebounder, with the RSI about to crack above the 50-line and the MACD just having underwent a bullish cross.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MDCO Options Recap & More

The Medicines Co. MDCO

We were spot on in terms of the options ideas we offered up in yesterday’s premarket report.
After taking a look at the premarket activity being driven by some untraded-upon press, we targeted the MDCO Weekly $38-41 Calls. We specified that we’d be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip scenario to give rise to chances in that range, and it turned out quite well.

Here’s a look at the possibilities for big gains that traders were afforded with those contracts: 

$38 Calls  – Daily Range: 2.30-3.50 – Max Gain: 52%
$39 Calls  – Daily Range: 1.75-2.55 – Max Gain: 46%
$40 Calls  – Daily Range: 1.05-2.40 – Max Gain: 129%
$41 Calls  – Daily Range: .80-1.75 – Max Gain: 119%

Other Notable Gainers

A couple of the stocks we’ve had on bottom-watch which we mentioned in yesterday’s report had modest yet notable sessions to kick off the week, and we’ll continue to monitor for signs of continued recovery in both instances. 

Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. BONT – We’ve been on BONT’s trail for a couple of weeks, and yesterday the stock made a slight jump from 3.60-4.07 for an intraday move of 13% and held the majority of those gains into the close.

SFE Entertainment, Inc. SFXE – SFXE also made a nice move from a low of .91 up to 1.04, a 14% jump, and it too held the majority of its ground, closing above a dollar.

VelocityShares 3X Long Crude Oil ETN (UWTI)

We’re seeing some bullish patterns on the UWTI chart that we felt were worth pointing out. As you can plainly see on the annotated snapshot below, this particular note has traded record volume en route to logging four consecutive sessions of higher highs and higherl ows off of its recently established 52-week low.

We’ll be on the lookout for the possibility of further advances provided that Crude Oil futures can see a sustained uptrend over recent lows.
