Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates, New Ideas


SPY Review 

On Friday, as we usualy do, we signaled some last minute ideas for options trading. In this case we called the SPY Weekly $292 Calls, and  we wanted to update readers on the performance those put forth.

Thanks to a surge in the markets later in the day,  which ran hard into the close, the SPY took off, and brought our trading idea with it. From a low of .37, the $292 Calls ran as high as 2.23. That was good for a single-day move of 503%

These instances should serve as an ongoing reminder of why we’ve shifted main focus to quick-strike options trading over the years. We have several multi-bag gainers like this each week. Case in point: Prior to this SPY Call we even had a couple of thousand percent gainers last week as well. We’ll attempt to find similar success once again as we kick off this holiday-shortened split trading week.

Fresh Idea:
SPY Weekly $295-296 Calls


MGM Resorts International Inc. MGM

We’ve been tracking a range of MGM contracts over the past few weeks, and the push into the close on Friday helped move the needle here as well.

Our targets have been the MGM 08/16 $28-30 Calls and while we have seen some decent little moves so far, there’s still plenty of time remaining before expiration. We wouldn’t be surprised to have to revisit these ideas again for more updates on added gains in the sessions to come.

$28 Calls – Range: 1.09-1.66 – Max Gain: 52%
$29 Calls – Range: .74-1.17 – Max Gain: 58%
$30 Calls – Range: .44-.75 – Max Gain: 70%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates

MGM Resorts International Inc. MGM

On Monday morning, we issued a Form-4 alert on MGM after witnessing more than $75M in insider buying at a bottom pour in over the course of the previous three sessions.

We can usually have a fairly high rate of confidence that a stock in this situation will produce a rebound, and so far that’s just what we’ve seen. We signaled the MGM 08/16 $28-30 Calls for tracking, and so far, we’ve seen some pretty nice moves.

$28 Calls – Range: 1.09-1.80 – Max Gain: 65%
$29 Calls – Range: .96-1.32 – Max Gain: 38%
$30 Calls – Range: .68-.95 – Max Gain: 40%

There is plenty of time to continue to look after this idea, which could certainly produce further gains from this point forward.

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR

We also added a pair of options contracts to watch in the HEAR chain last Thursday, and while we also have plenty of time to realize added gains in this case as well, the early performance out of these has been noteworthy, especially the $15’s which have already recorded a multi-bag move.

HEAR 10/18 $12.50-15 Calls.
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%
$15 Calls – Range: .20-.50 – Max Gain: 150%

FRESH OPTIONS IDEA: 
Dave & Busters Entertainment Inc. PLAY  07/26 $40-45 Calls 


Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. OCUL – Recap

We also wanted to quickly mention the performance of OCUL since we alerted on the stock last month. It has produced quite a dip and rip since that time, touching a low of 2.38 before running as high as 4.08. That marks a total possible gain of 71% in a span of just over three weeks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Calls, More Options

SPY Review

After big success with SPY options earlier last week, we decided to roll up our strike prices and make another pass at an some options ideas on the fund to open things up this week. A reversal on plans to slap tariffs on Mexican goods is helping to fuel a push for the markets in early trading today.

Our ideas for Friday were the SPY Weekly $285-286 Calls, and we’re happy to report some huge single session, multibag gain opportunities came out of those calls for us.

$285 Calls – Range: 1.18-3.86 – Max Gain: 227%
$286 Calls – Range: .59-2.89. – Max Gain: 393%

In order to stay close to the action, we’re going to want to stick with bullish SPY calls and roll up our strike prices yet again to kick off a new trading week this morning. We’re going to radar the SPY Weekly $288-290 Calls.


MGM Resorts International Inc. MGM – Form-4 Alert 

We always scan for new Form-4 submissions, and MGM is the latest subject of insider trading. A director of the company purchased over $20M in MGM stock three separate times last week. Between the buying from Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, Keith Meister purchased in excess of $75M+ worth of his company’s shares.

That is no small series of transactions, and leads us to believe confidence on the inside at MGm is high that the stock can continue recover off of its recent relative lows. We’re going to signal some longer term calls to correspond with the situation and begin tracking the MGM 08/16 $28-30 Calls.


SPECIAL NOTE: 

We urge readers not to miss out on any of our newsletters this week. We’ve got some plays in cannabis sector that are primed to heat up and we’ll be bringing those to you over the course of the week. You’ll definitely want to catch those, so make sure you’re scanning your inboxes each morning to get in on the action!

PPHM | Peregrine Pharmaceuticals Inc & Extended Watchlist

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. PPHM

We’ve had PPHM on our radars for the better part of a month now. In that time, there has been quite a few opportunities to get in and out at a nice profit. At the time of our first alert, on August 14th, it experienced one of its biggest volume days ever, trading over 12.5M shares.  We reminded our members of PPHM’s explosiveness last Thursday. On Friday, the stock traded a whopping 29M shares, accompanied by a significant price increase. The stock touched a low of 2.68 before surging 90% to 5.08, and closing at 4.50. With all of the increased interest and activity, we want to keep an eye on PPHM moving forward.

The company had a lot of news out last week outlining various developments, including its intent to release financials today, premarket.

Side Note: The APPL $680 Calls that appeared in our extended watchlist on Friday, at one point ran from .90 to nearly 3.00. Apple options continue to be an ongoing source of profits for us.
