Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas, LEXG & More

Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. LEXG

We’ve been tracking the activity in LEXG for quite a time, and the volatility and price action in this play has provided for us on more than one occasion.

Yesterday was yet another of those occasions, with the stock putting in a solid performance. LEXG traded in a range from .0036-.0045, an intraday move of 25% which came on a little over thrice the monthly average volume.

The moves we’ve seen since putting LEXG on watch in December have been significantly more impressive as well. We saw a low of .0013 around the holidays, putting our overall observed increase in just over three weeks at 246%

Options Ideas

We’ve been so wrapped up in tracking various stocks over the first couple weeks of 2017, that the following will be our first options ideas of the year!

Netflix, Inc. NFLX -  NFLX has been generally trending upward for around two months, hitting new all-time highs this week. Yesterday’s earnings and updates, including the fact that the streaming giant had added a record 7 million new subscribers over the last quarter.

We want to potentially take advantage of a continued run, even if its preceded by a dip-and-rip pattern. As long as it holds support above the $139 mark, we’re going to interested in tracking the NFLX Weekly  $139-143 Calls.


Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – TSLA is another big board stock that has been on a bullish tear of late. The stock has been stacking gains on top of gains over the past 6 weeks.

This morning, it received an upgrade from Morgan Stanley, and we’ll hope to use that added attention to see some more good moves in the stock. Accordingly, we’ll have the TSLA Weekly $240-245 Calls on watch today and tomorrow.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Ideas, Reviewing Winners & More

Eagle Bulk Shipping, Inc. EGLE

We caught sight of a stock that’s been building a cherry of a chart in the form of a nice bottom-bounce, the momentum from which it has sustained over the past four sessions.

We went ahead and pointed out a few highlights on the chart below. Despite already being up considerably above recent lows, a number of indicators still give us a bullish feeling on EGLE at the moment. We’ll be looking for a break of key resistance at the current 50DMA of .83. As you can see, the stock has demonstrated high month-to-month volatility, and recently made a brief but impressive swing into the three-dollar range.

We’ll keep the play on our radar in coming sessions as a return to much higher levels seems perfectly plausible at the present time.

PBR Options Recap

Before we jump into the fresh ideas we’ve worked out for today, we just want to take a second to go over the gains possible from one of Friday’s options calls. We said we wanted to track the PBR Weekly $5-6 Calls, and it was the 5.50′s that performed the best for the day.

We saw those contracts trade up from a low of .18 and reach .32 for a solid chance at up to 78% profits for the session.

Strikeforce Technology, Inc. SFOR

We also want to recap the excellent performance we’ve seen from SFOR in the seven sessions since our initial alert on the stock in our premarket report from March 31st. On that day, we witnessed a low of .0007, and the stock hasn’t looked back yet.

On Friday alone, the stock made a healthy 80% intraday rip from a low of .001-.0018. That high also registered as a 157% overall upswing over our observed low.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX-  Options Update
We wanted to circle back to touch upon an update for the VRX 04/22 $32 Calls we initially slated for observation on Tuesday.  VRX trading activity allowed for us to witness a run from 2.90-3.90 that day, for possible gains of up to 35%

We stated as much in yesterday’s morning report, with the added reminder that we felt certain the scope of those gains would increase, and we were spot-on once again.

For the day we observed a move from 4.25-5.25, a relatively modest 24%, however as measured from the low we saw on Tuesday morning, it marked a two-day swing of 81%, so cheers to those of our readers who were following along with us on this play!

Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – New Options Idea

Up until yesterday’s session, TSLA had been enjoying an epic rally which began in early February, however, that began to fizzle out over the past couple of days. The stock now appears very top-heavy, and that was confirmed by a fall below its 200DMA yesterday.

In the event that this is a protracted backsliding event, we’re going to want to be ready with a corresponding options trading idea.  We’re going to zero in on contracts in the range of TSLA March 24th $220-215 Puts, which qualify as Weekly contracts*, as the markets are closed tomorrow.

*Please remember, trading weekly options contracts on a Friday is an extreme high risk/high reward proposition, and is recommended for highly experienced traders only.

Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPXX

CPXX was a point of focus for us last Wednesday, when we caught a hot PR hitting the wires, and despite the stock already being up considerably at that point, we were able to glean a healthy 41% gain out of the stock that first day (from a low of 6.44).

As we’ve kept observing the play over the course of the week, we’ve seen a continual stream of higher highs and higher lows, which culminated in a new high of 12.64 yesterday. In exactly one week’s time, we saw CPXX make an overall swing totaling 96%

Great Basin Scientific, Inc. GBSN

We also want to give ourselves a quick pat on the back for calling GBSN to our readers attention via our extended watchlist yesterday. The stock was experiencing highly abnormal activity due to some FDA News and despite gapping up to the extreme, we still saw a dip-and-rip which carried the stock on an intraday run from .222-.29, a 31% swing.

ML Capital Group, Inc. MLCG – Update
The first thing we want to do today is take a look back to Thursday morning at a play we designated for observation in our watchlist.

MLCG has followed up our alert with three consecutive sessions of higher highs and higher lows. On Thursday, we witnessed the stock changing hands at .0008, and yesterday we saw it reach a high of .0014. That marks a laudable three-day swing of 75% with very heavy volume coming in over that time-span.

We’ll continue to monitor MLCG for a continuation of the bullish pattern we’ve seen established thus far.

Special Reminders:

Axion Power International, Inc. AXPW
& Skyline Medical, Inc. SKLN

Now, we’d like to reiterate our opinion of both of these [unrelated] stocks, which we recently presented as bottom-watch plays.

Each one is still giving us the impression that their rebounds could occur soon, so we just wanted to remind our readers that these plays are still on our radar. In both cases, the stocks appear heavily oversold and ripe to begin a significant recovery, so let’s not let them fall by the wayside just yet.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX-  Options Idea

We’ll close out this morning’s report with our first fresh options idea of the week. We’ve been watching over the past week as the stock has taken a real pounding, falling from just below the $70-level to below the $30-level.

We’re going to signal a set of contracts with an extended expiration period, the VRX 04/22 $32 Calls, which will give us plenty of time in which to see the stock put some distance between itself and the newly-established 52-week low it saw yesterday.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas & More

Fresh Options Ideas

We’ve formulated a few new angles of approach with respect to options ideas that we’re going to share this morning, each with its own specific reason for appearing attractive at the present time.

United Parcel Service, Inc. UPS

We’re going to be taking a look at a range of medium-term UPS contracts, namely the April 8th $104 Calls, which we feel have a good chance at performing well in coming weeks on account of a number of factors.

The shipping sector as a whole is currently doing well due to boosted online sales, as top competitor FedEx’s reported earnings yesterday certainly reflected. We also like the look of the UPS chart from a technical perspective, as the following annotations demonstrate:

We also learned this week that the company is going to be increasing the size of its CNG (compressed natural gas) powered fleet, including an infrastructure build-out of several new CNG stations to support it. (>> VIEW PR)

SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. SEAS

We also are going to be monitoring a range of Seaworld options, once again due to a fresh news release, as well as an attractive chart setup. As you can see on the provided snapshot, SEAS is showing a multiple bottom formation, and if it can continue to rebound off of its recent relative lows, appears to have a shot at a nice rebound over the next few weeks if history is any indicator.

We’re going to be watching the SEAS April 15th $18 Calls, which last traded at .16. If SEAS can rebound to the upper $19 range by that expiration date, the gains on these contracts could realistically approach ten-bagger territory.

SeaWorld, which has been under fire for years over their Killer Whale shows, has just announced that it will immediately cease its orca breeding programs, beginning a phase-out of the theatrical dog-and-pony-style performances and shift toward more natural displays. (>>View PR)
