Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OSTK Update & More

Overstock.com, Inc. OSTK

On Friday, we identified a  pair of options targets for OSTK, the 10/04 $15.50 & 16 Calls. Despite falling to the low side toward the end of the day, there were some early opportunities for our designated contracts.

The $15.50 Calls traded up from 1.50-1.90 for a notable 27% intraday move, while the $16 Calls traded in a range from 1.40-1.96 (+40%).

With the late session dip, OSTK fell considerably, but we view this as no less than a buy-in opportunity on these very same contracts. We like the chances of seeing a quick rebound, and the potential for further gains out of these plays over the course of the next trading week or two.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EROS Update & More

Eros International Plc. EROS 

We revisited EROS yesterday morning, just under one month following our August 21st report, mentioning its recent run which began from a low of 1.20.

The stock was moving in the premarket in the wake of a news announcement placing the company in partnership with Microsoft. We felt the news had a chance to carry the stock even higher than we had seen it run already, and that’s just what yesterday’s session brought.

EROS ran to a new high of 3.92, which marked an overall increase of 227% over our observed low roughly three weeks ago. The performance was also good enough to land the stock in the #1 slot on the NASDAQ daily top gainers list.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Success

UnitedHealth Group Inc UNH

As we near the midway point of this holiday-shortened week, we are going to be taking a look at a fresh earnings related options idea with UnitedHealth.

The company just posted an impressive across-the-board earnings beat, while the chart itself was already in a prime bottom-bounce position. We are going to track the UNH Weekly $232.50-237.50 Calls, which should be in very good shape if events play out as expected.


Fastenal, Inc. FAST

We also signaled the FAST 04/18 $62.50-67.50 Calls, last Thursday following the company’s own earnings beat. The moves we’ve observed since then have been moderate, but still impressive nonetheless.

$62.50 Calls – Range: 5.40-7.10 – Max Gain: 31%
$65 Calls – Range: 2.40-4.80  – Max Gain: 100%
$67.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.43 – Max Gain: 121%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL Options Idea

Delta Airlines, Inc. DAL

To start things off this morning, we’re immediately drawn to the most recognizable name on the premarket earnings calendar for the day. Delta has been beaten back over the past few weeks, to the point of approaching heavily oversold territory, especially as the PPS fell below the 50DMA for the first time since the second week of February.  When that did occur, the stock launched into a month-long bullish pattern. All of this is plainly evident on the chart snapshot below.

With this morning’s beat on earnings as a catalyst, we’ll look for a similar pattern to emerge this time around, and begin tracking the DAL 04/13 51.50-53 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BRAV Recap & More

Bravada International, Ltd. BRAV

We tagged BRAV in Friday morning’s premarket report after noticing increased volume and price action in the stock on our routine morning scan. It responded with one heck of a strong intraday performance, allowing traders a shot at a double bagger on the day.

BRAV traded up from its early morning low of .00128 to hit a high of .0028 shortly after 12:40pm, which was good for a 118% rip, and it came on 20X the 30-day average volume.


Deere & Co. DE – Friday Recap

We wanted to briefly mention our DE options idea for Friday’s session, the DE Weekly $118-121 Call.
 We normally include the exact gains made by our options calls, but are unable to on this play due to a technical difficulty, so we apologize for that.

That being said, DE ran from 119.00 to 122.24 on the day, and the potential for multi-bag gains in every single one of our highlighted contracts certainly were there for the taking.


FerroGlobe PLC (GSM)

A stock that’s hitting our scanner today is GSM, which recently came down to touch the lowest prices it had seen in eight months, and has been rebounding in anticipation of Q1 Earnings, which were released yesterday and are untraded-upon.

Additionally, the RSI on the GSM chart is about to break the 50-line, while the MACD has just undergone a bullish cross. A return to PPS levels of just three months ago would produce gains of 30% or more from current pricing. We’ll place GSM on watch over the next few sessions and will be interested to see how the activity plays out.


GlycoMimetics, Inc. GLYC – Recap

We were tracking GLYC late last week, and it turned out to be a rousing success. The stock saw a low of 7.21 on Thursday following our premarket alert, and on Friday it hit 14.64, for a two-session swing of 103% which is fantastic for a stock in this price range.
