Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big News Play & More


PVH Corp. PVH

PVH has demanded our repeat attention for nearly an entire trading week now. We were just updating our readers yesterday morning  with the fantastic gains we’ve seen from our options idea, the PVH 09/20 $75-85 Calls, since last Tuesday.

We’ve had to return each morning to update readers on the new highs these plays have been registering each day. Today will be no different, with significant extensions to our total observed ranges being logged with yesterday’s session. Please note, these are the lows following our alert last Tuesday, to yesterday’s subsequent highs.

$75 Calls – Range: 5.10-14.25 – Max Gain: 179%
$80 Calls – Range: 2.00-9.60 – Max Gain: 380%
$85 Calls – Range: .55-5.07 – Max Gain: 789%

With nearly two weeks remaining until expiration, we can’t rule out even more increases coming to these plays. They’ll remain on our radar for the time being.


Weatherford International plc  WFTIQ

Also catching our eye today, thanks to our longtime reader Mark, is a news release by an OTC company which has just scored a huge contract with PBR (Petrobras), a stock that we have an extensive history covering. It is Brazil’s state run oil conglomerate, and the deal represents the biggest score for WFTIQ to date.

We’ll include a clip of, and link to, the PR below, and what we’re looking at for the stock is the potential for some rapid near-term gains as a response to the big news.

BAAR, Switzerland, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Weatherford International plc (OTC-PINK: WFTIQ) (the “Company” or “Weatherford”), announced the signing of an $87 million contract for fishing and intervention services with Petrolio Brasileiro S.A., which is more commonly known as Brazilian-based multinational corporation Petrobras. The four-year agreement represents the largest fishing contract ever signed by Weatherford. It also constitutes the largest single global award for this scope in the recent past. (>>View Full PR)


FuelCell Energy, Inc. FCEL 

FCEL is a play we’ve also been familiar with in the past, and we tagged in yesterday morning’s premarket watchlist after the company’s big Q3 revenue beat on Friday.

It was a solid choice, with the stock making a nice move on day for us. FCEL traded in a range from .48-.64, marking a move of 33% We’ll be interested to see if it can build off of that momentum and continue to rise up off of its recent relative lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PANW Pops & More

Palo Alto Networks, Inc. PANW

Fresh for yesterday’s morning report, we offered up an idea for the PANW chain, the PANW Weekly $215-222.50 Calls. With the aid of an excellent session for the markets as a whole, PANW went with the trend and produced enough intraday movement to provide us with significant single-session gain opportunities.

Here were the maximum possible gains that were on the table for the day, which were, quite frankly, very impressive:

$215 Calls – Range: .20-2.06 – Max Gain: 930%
$217.50 Calls – Range: .15-1.05 – Max Gain: 600%
$220 Calls – Range: .06-.38 – Max Gain: 533%
$222.50 Calls – Range: .06-.20 – Max Gain: 233%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TSN Recap & More

Tyson Foods Inc. TSN – Update

We started the week off yesterday by formulating some options ideas for TSN. The company had a mixed earnings call, with a beat on Q3 profits, and a miss on sales. We pointed to the technical setup of the chart as our primary reason for being interested, and as it turns out we called the bottom perfectly.

We came up with a short and longer term set of ideas, and while we may yet come back to the long terms, we are looking at the weekly calls we designated today after some solid performances. Those were the TSN Weekly $58-59.50 Calls, and all but the $58′s produced double-bag gains on the session.

$58.50 Calls – Range: .90-2.25 – Max Gain: 150%
$59 Calls – Range: .80-1.68 – Max Gain: 110%
$59.50 Calls – Range: .75-1.50 – Max Gain: 100%



Fresh Options Ideas

Our success with options over the past several weeks has been so pronounced, we see absolutely no reason to stop now, especially being in the thick of another earnings season. We’ve got another pair of earning related options ideas to bring to the table today.

Etsy, Inc. ETSY Weekly $40-50 Calls
Zillow Group, Inc. Z Weekly $48-49 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Ford Options Recap & More

Ford Motor Co. F

Back on February 12th, we flagged Ford as a bottom watch play after the company got off to a bad start in 2018. It had just begun to show signs of life, so we formulated an options idea to help us take advantage of the scenario.

Our targets were the F 03/02 10.37-11.37 Calls and we’ve seen some solid opportunities from three of the four contracts in that range in the two weeks since our alert.

$10.37 Calls – Range: .31-.55 – Max Gain: 77%
$10.87 Calls – Range: .04-.12 – Max Gain: 200%
$11 Calls – Range:.02-.07 – Max Gain: 250%


Target Corp. TGT

Yesterday morning we saw an opportunity to select a range of calls in the Target options chain, and decided to focus on the TGT Weekly $75-76.50 Calls for a fresh options idea. It was an immediate success, with TGT trading up enough to produce some really nice single-session swings.

$75 Calls – Range: 1.42-2.42 – Max Gain: 70%
$75.50 Calls – Range: 1.03-1.92 – Max Gain: 86%
$76 Calls – Range: .85-1.64 – Max Gain: 93%
$76.50 Calls – Range: .80-1.31 – Max Gain: 64%


Dean Foods Co. DF

We also want to put DF on our watchscreens as a bottom-watch play. The stock got absolutely crushed as a result of missed earnings and revenue estimates in its Q4 report, along with a  downgrade by Credit Suisse.

These events have driven DF into heavily oversold territory, registering a new 52-week low. The stock also has a history of relatively volatile swings, so we’re going to watch closely for the beginnings of a bottom bounce in sessions ahead. It may have further to fall, but we’ll be looking for that rebound.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NQ Review & More

NQ Mobile, Inc.  NQ

Our coverage of NQ stretches all the way back to the Fall of 2013 when the stock made a huge run, and we tracked it to a similar albeit smaller-scale spike in October, so we are quite familiar with this play. We have good reason to re-assess NQ this morning in the wake of an interesting PR, coupled with a good positioning of the chart.

In terms of the NQ chart, there a couple of finer points that we’ll point out on the following snapshot:

This morning’s PR relates to a big open market stock repurchase by management which seems to be fueling NQ in the premarket. >>> VIEW PR  



Cannabis Coverage:

A few of the marijuana-related stocks we were mentioning yesterday morning managed to put up some solid numbers over the course of the day.

CBIS traded in a range from .068-.08 (+17%) on roughly 4X its monthly average volume.

MCIG did slightly better as recorded a 19% move from .15 to .178, trading more than twice its average volume.

EAPH
also had a heavy volume day to the tune of roughly 3X its average, and made a healthy jump of 21% as it traded from its open at .024 to a high of .029.

As medical and recreational marijuana acceptance continues to spread, we’ll need to keep a close eye on these and many other cannabis plays, as we tend to believe that growth in this arena will be more substantial in 2015 than any previous year.

A few other pot plays to watch this week: WDHR, NRTI, MDCN, LATF, VPOR
