Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

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%
$18.50 Calls – Overall Range: .64-3.38 – 2-Day Gain: 216% – Friday Intraday: 97%
$19 Calls – Overall Range: .38-2.95 – 2-Day Gain: 334% – Friday Intraday: 144%
$19.50 Calls – Overall Range: .18-2.43  – 2-Max Gain: 539% – Friday Intraday: 277%

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:

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.

*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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VNR Recap & More


Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC. VNR

We began watching VNR as it hit its annual lows back in the fall, initially tagging it in our report from October 6th. We’ve seen some pretty impressive swings since then, and have routinely included the stock in several of our reports.

Most recently was the first trading day of 2017, and we’ve since witnessed another bullish push out of VNR as it has traded in a range from .70-1.11 (+58%) over the past couple of weeks. From our overall observed low of .46 in VNR just after our first alert in October, this week’s new high represents a 141% increase.

Next we’ll be looking for the stock to make a run at a key resistance point sitting at the 200DMA of 1.17



Alkame Holdings, Inc. ALKM

We’ve been tracking ALKM since Wednesday’s premarket report, and over these couple of sessions, we have seen a decent trading range on the stock.

From Wednesday’s early low of .0014, ALKM has touched a high of .002, which works out to a swing of 43% to the upside. We’ll leave the stock on our radar, and be on the lookout for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Avinger, Inc. AVGR – Reminder

We noticed AVGR getting ready for a heavy gap-up after bouncing off of its bottom yesterday. Although it only rose a modest 17% upon the open from 2.90-3.40, we’re going to still want to track its movements heading into next week, as it may yet continue to pile up more gains.

Several indicators on the chart are still looking ripe for that possibility despite all the lost ground it recovered  with yesterday’s gap-up.


Microsoft Corp. MSFT -  Options Idea

We wanted to signal a range of options ideas we feel have potential after Microsoft beat the Street’s estimates in yesterday’s post-market earnings report.

We’re going to be tracking the MSFT Weekly $64.50-66 Calls, starting at the lower strike price, and rolling up if the stock looks like it’s going to continue to break out and push the strike price into the money. The premarket high on MSFT is 65.68, so in order to consider rolling up to $66′s, we would want to see a break past that mark.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Wrapping Up Another Great Week

Options Roundup

American Express Co. AXP – For a fresh idea yesterday, we signaled a range of AXP options that we felt would see some nice activity in the wake of an earnings beat for American Express. The targets were the AXP Weekly $64-65.50 Calls.

Our assumptions proved accurate, with major moves happening for all four sets of contracts contained within that range:

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – We also had a running options idea going for NFLX since Tuesday, and the gains were extended even further for us in yesterday’s session. The NFLX Weekly $117-120 Calls have gone up every day since our initial alert, exceeding even our own expectations.

The updated figures below represent the range from Tuesday’s lows, to the new highs recorded yesterday, and the total possible gains therein:

Today’s Fresh Ideas

Microsoft Corp MSFT  – Continuing along our extremely successful pattern of taking advantage of earnings beats for options trading this week, we’re going to submit two last ideas today. With Microsoft hitting all-time highs, we’ll be very interested in tracking the activity in the MSFT Weekly $59-61 Calls*, and if the stock manages to break $61, of course we’d have to roll our strike prices up.
_____

 McDonalds Corp. MCD - McDonalds’ earnings report is also being well received this morning and MCD was a stock that had been previously backsliding. We’ll look to take advantage of the potential reversal with the MCD Weekly $113-115 Calls*.

*We always issue an extra warning when highlighting an idea that involves trading weekly options on a Friday. If you’re not an advanced trader, don’t even attempt it!


Other Updates

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP -
We first began talking about OWCP on September 29th, and at the time we had designated it a subpenny bottom-play. Our observed low that day was .0045, and the stock has never looked back as it’s gone on an absolutely epic ride since then.

We were impressed enough after seeing it run over 1500% past the seven cent mark in the first week we were tracking it, but what came next was on another level. We called for our readers to watch for a dip-and-rip off of that initial run, and that’s just what happened.

The stock reached an incredible new high of .191 yesterday, marking a surreal 4144% gain over our observed low from just three weeks ago.

GreenGro Technologies, Inc. GRNH – As we’ve been mentioning all week, cannabis plays are hot once again, and one of the latest movers in that department has been GRNH. We tagged it along with several other pot stocks that have been performing well on Tuesday. Since that time, it has traded up from .0905 to  as high as .142, a 57% pop.

From our next most recent alert on GRNH on October 4th, the move has been even more impressive (.0651-.142; 118%).

As we said, we’ll continue to have it and other marijuana stocks on close watch as we approach election day, with several states having recreational marijuana on the ballot.

We’ve also prepared a video presentation of the charts on both of these plays, which you can view by tapping the image below:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OPTT, MSFT Recaps & More

Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. OPTT

It was June 16th when OPTT started appearing on our scans, and subsequent to that, we’ve witnessed the stock trading as low as 2.33.

The stock has really been ramping up the intensity in recent sessions, causing us to tag it on Monday (low of 5.72), and then again in yesterday’s report. OPTT had a really nice intraday performance in yesterday’s session, wherein traders could have banked up to 97% in gains as it ran from 7.94 to a new high of 15.65.

From our alert on Monday, that high represents an upswing of 174%, and from our overall observed low from last month, a PPS increase of 572%  For us to stay keen on OPTT moving forward, we’ll want to see it hold at Tuesday’s swing high of 9.87 on any forthcoming pullbacks.


Microsoft Corp. MSFT – Options Update

With MSFT’s recent aquisition of LNKD and an exciting earnings beat yesterday, MSFT was causing a buzz on the Street. We honed in on some corresponding options ideas for a potential daytrading opportunity, and it unsurprisingly turned out quite well in our favor.

The specific range we highlighted was the MSFT Weekly $54.50-56.50 Calls and the total possible gains on each were as follows:

$54.50 Calls – Range: 1.16-2.31 – Max Gain: 99%
$55 Calls – Range: .76-1.86 – Max Gain: 148%
$55.50 Calls – Range: .46-1.36 – Max Gain: 196%
$56 Calls – Range:  .24-.95 – Max Gain: 296%
$56.50 Calls – Range: .10-57 – Max Gain: 470%

We’ll continue to trail these contracts for the remainder of the week, as further opportunities may be present.

We placed SPU on watch on Friday, and the stock has been gaining some excellent ground this week over our observed low of 4.00 from that morning. Yesterday it hit a high of 10.13, marking a move of 153%
