Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Tech Options Review

OPTIONS REVIEW

We were banking on a market reversal yesterday in tandem with good performances from a couple earnings plays that we formulated some options ideas for, and got everything we wanted.

Both of the plays were in the tech sector, which turned out to see some of the highest incidences of recovery, and it facilitated some very nice gain opportunities for anyone who was paying attention to our ideas.

Despite the appearance of yet another reversal and possibly another down day, we are quite pleased with the double-bag, single-session gains afforded to us by these two tech stocks.

Blue Horseshoe Stock: Tech Options Plays

TECH OPTIONS

We’re seeing a bit of a rebound in the markets this morning after they once again got crushed yesterday. Partially due to a better-than-expected economic report on Durable Orders, we’ll look for the highest profile companies with fresh earnings out that appear set to move this morning.

TSLA and MSFT both dropped their reports in after-market hours yesterday, and look to be our most promising potential targets today.

The tech sector as a whole was among the hardest hit in the recent spate of losses for domestic stocks, with many, if not most of its players being beaten back to unsustainably low levels, so the timing is actually quite good for some solid movement off of these earnings reports.

We expect a market recovery to provide us with plenty of chances to take advantage of all of these underpriced stocks as they rebound in the days and weeks ahead.

CSX Corp. CSX – Update

On Wednesday morning following CSX’s solid quarterly earnings report, we selected the CSX Weekly $65-67.50 Calls for observation, and scored the opportunity at multi-bag gains that day, as we relayed in yesterday’s premarket report.

What followed was a dip-and-rip out of CSX, and even more chances for double-bag to multibag gains for the second consecutive session. Here are the intraday profits that could have been achieved yesterday:

$65 Calls– Range: 1.91-4.50 – Max Gain: 136%
$65.50 Calls – Range: 1.84-3.85 – Max Gain: 109%
$66 Calls – Range: 1.25-3.40 – Max Gain: 172%
$66.50 Calls – Range: 1.07-2.93 – Max Gain: 174%
$67 Calls – Range: .42-2.25 – Max Gain: 436%
$67.50 Calls – Range: .27-2.04 – Max Gain: 656%


Ebay, Inc. EBAY – Options Recap

Speaking of single-day multibag gains, also included in yesterday’s report was a fresh idea for the EBAY options chain. We went bearish after the company disappointed on Q2 revs, signaling our interest in the EBAY Weekly $36-34.50 Puts  and we were dead-on with that idea as well.

The following fantastic gains were on the table:


$36 Puts
– Range: .71-2.08 – Max Gain: 193%
$35.50 Puts – Range: .42-1.46 – Max Gain: 248%
$35 Puts – Range: .20-1.10 – Max Gain: 450%
$34.50 Puts – Range: .09-.63 – Max Gain: 600%

After having such great success with options this week, as we usually do, we’ll go ahead and finish things up with two more fresh earnings related ideas. Just make sure you’re not trading these calls unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds!

Twitter, Inc. TWTR

We had a really good idea for the TWTR options chain on Thursday morning with the Weekly $18-19.50 Calls. Not only did they make multi-bag gains on Thursday, but with another bullish session Friday, our total possible profits were extended by a significant margin.

We’ve listed the overall moves below, in addition to the intraday gains that were available on Friday alone.

$18 Calls – Overall Range: 1.00-3.95 – 2-Day Gain: 295% – Friday Intraday: 76%

Friday’s fresh options ideas also both worked like a charm, bringing a fitting end to what was an amazing week for our options trading ideas across the board:

$160 Calls – Range: .10-3.65 – Max Gain: 3550%


The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. BONT

We tagged BONT on Thursday morning, at which time we observed a low of .68 in the stock. After a solid first session, we reiterated the tag in Friday’s report and the stock came out of the starting gate like a bolt. It traded all the way up to 1.15 before tapering back, but not before completing a two-day swing of 69% for us.

The stock’s presently hovering around a dollar, so we’ll be watching as the new trading week kicks off this morning to see if BONT can manage to string together a third session of higher highs and higher lows.

Twitter, Inc. TWTR

Twitter posted its quarterly figures showing the company was nearing profitability, so we took the opportunity to signal a range of options, and what followed was Twitter’s biggest bullish session since last year, and some great chances for gains in our designated contracts, the TWTR Weekly $18-19.50 Calls.

$18 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.60 – Max Gain: 160%
$18.50 Calls – Range: .64-2.02 – Max Gain: 216%

*Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s just about as risky as it gets.


ITUS Corp. ITUS

We’ve been tracking ITUS since September 21st, subsequent to which point we witnessed a really great move in the stock from 1.92-5.15 for gains of up to 168% over just a few sessions.

In the past few weeks ITUS has been under consolidation, but yesterday the stock came down and kissed the 50DMA before bouncing. It’s gapping up this morning in the premarket, so we’ll want to watch closely for it to hold the 200DMA of 2.19 on any pullbacks. If it can manage that, we like the chances of seeing what could be more sizable moves for the stock in coming sessions.
