Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review


Options Review

We dedicated yesterday’s premarket newsletters to our Special Report, so we wanted to circle back this morning to go over a couple of options ideas we submitted to our readers on Tuesday morning.

We had identified plays in the ULTA and MKC options chains following a Form-4 Alert and an earnings report, respectively, and in both cases we met with fantastic multi-bag gain opportunities. Here were the total possible profits on the table:

ULTA 11/01 $260-265 Calls
$260 Calls – Range: 4.00-13.30 – Max Gain: 233%
$262.50 Calls – Range: 2.60-12.50 – Max Gain: 381%
$265 Calls – Range: 2.80-11.25 – Max Gain: 302%
_____

MKC Weekly $155-160 Calls

$155 Calls – Range: 5.58-13.58 – Max Gain: 143%
$160 Calls – Range: 2.82-9.12 – Max Gain: 223%

Fresh Options Idea:
PEP Weekly $134-136 Calls 



American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. ARA

We also want to place ARA on watch as a possible bottom bounce play. The stock has never been much lower than where it’s currently trading, has a recently history of sharp spikes, and indications that a significant rebound could be on the way. We’ll keep an eye peeled for such activity over the next several sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Trio

Fresh Options Ideas

We have a trio of fresh options ideas for today’s report- a couple of earnings plays, and a Form-4 alert. 

Ulta Beauty, Inc. ULTA – We saw a Form-4 pop up on ULTA last week, as the stock was beginning to find its way up off a bottom. There is an absolutely massive topside gap on the chart, so we’re looking at this as a longer-term idea.

We’re set to track the ULTA 11/01 $260-265 Calls over the next few weeks, which would play very well if the stock can even begin to fill that gap.

McCormick & Co. Inc. MKC - First up for our pair of earnings plays, we’ve got MKC, which posted a Q3 profit beat as well as heightened guidance. We’re going to tag the MKC Weekly $155-160 Calls for observation this morning.
_____

Stitch Fix, Inc. SFIX 
 - Lastly, we’ve got SFIX earns coming up in the post-market this afternoon, and the stock is at a really good spot on the chart. We’re going to radar the SFIX Weekly $19.50-20 Calls.


IMPORTANT REMINDER!

We will be initiating coverage on a brand new high-potential nanotech play tomorrow morning!

Stay glued to those inboxes or visit BlueHorseshoeStocks.com shortly after 9AM tomorrow morning for our Special Report!

The $34 Calls have thus far traded up from a low of .85 to a high of 2.40 for a gain of 182%, while the $35′s have gone from .55 to 1.65- an increase of 200% With three weeks remaining until expiration we can continue to keep an eye on these for the possibility of higher highs.
