Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Ideas

BioMarin Pharmaceutical, Inc. BMRN

BioMarin had a really solid performance yesterday after we signaled some contracts in our premarket report, the BMRN 03/16 $80 & 85 Calls. The stock ran from 81.01 to 84.19 facilitating some modest but solid intraday moves in our contracts.

The $80 Calls ran from 4.40-6.00 for a 32% rise, and the $85′s traded from 2.70-3.50, a gain of 26%

With a strong close at 83.28, and a lot of ground to cover to recoup the losses the stock has seen in the month of February, we’ll look for BMRN to establish a more sustained recovery pattern, and we may see some further increases in these contracts, which still have over a month until expiration.


Under Armour, Inc. UAA

We want to formulate an idea for Under Armour on the heels of the company’s earnings report this morning. The stock had already begun to trend off of its bottom a few sessions ago, and despite posting a Q4 loss, sales were better than expected and the stock is gapping up pretty significantly here in the premarket.

We’re going to want to keep tabs on the UAA Weekly $15.50-16.50 Calls, which could bring us sizable gain opportunities in the day or days to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL Options Win & More

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL 

Things played out precisely as we expected with Delta yesterday. We specifically mentioned that DAL “has traditionally been one of those companies we can count on to provide good post-earnings opportunities”, and after a solid beat across the board, our ideas definitely paid off instantly.

Our targets, the DAL Weekly $57-58 Calls, went into overdrive as the stock itself executed a textbook dip-and-rip pattern, and provided us with the excellent chances for gains that we were after.

$57 Calls – Range: .24-2.13 – Max Gain: 787%
$57.50 Calls – Range: .14-1.70 – Max Gain: 1114%
$58 Calls – Range: .06-1.25 – Max Gain: 1983%


Eastman Kodak Co. KODK

We also wanted to update the options ideas we had for KODK on Wednesday. The company saw a surge after announcing its own unique crypto-coin, but we weren’t buying it. We signaled the KODK 02/16 $15 & $12.50 Puts.

While the gains weren’t monumental, they were solid enough, as KODK has since posted two consecutive sessions of freefall. The $15 Puts traded from 6.10-7.90 for a 30% rise, while the $12.50 Puts ran from 4.20 to 5.70, a gain of 36%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Updates

FutureLand Corp. FUTL

After already showing us a multi-bag swing from our initial alert on Friday to new highs on Monday, FUTL put up another solid performance yesterday. The stock traded in an intraday range from .0024 in the morning, and edged it way up all day to hit a new high of .0037 shortly before 2PM. That works out to a 54% push on the day, accompanied by roughly six times the monthly average volume.  .

From our observed low of .0012 on Friday, the stock has now managed a three-session swing amounting to 308% and will hold our interest as long as it continues to register higher base levels of support.


Apple, Inc. AAPL  – Options Recap

We figured to take advantage for the hype surrounding Apple for its big iPhone 8/X event, and there was enough price action and volatility throughout the day so as to present two separate opportunities for intraday swing trades.

We were looking at the AAPL Weekly $160 & $162.50 Calls, each of which exhibited the same pattern of an early run, followed by a dip-and-rip for a secondary move in the afternoon.

The $160′s first ran from 2.44-4.58 (+88%), and then from 1.07-1.98 (+85%), while the $162.50′s traded from 1.29-2.77 (+115%) initially, followed by a later move from .45-.80 (+78%). All in all, some nice activity for our first AAPL calls in quite some time.


 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL

Drawing us to CBRL this morning is a solid setup on the chart with the stock having recently reversed off of a bottom, in conjuction with a premarket earnings beat.  This is just the sort of scenario we’re always scanning for, and in this instance, we’re going to formulate both a shorter and longer-term options idea.

We’re going to place the CBRL Weekly $150 & 151.50 Calls as well as the 10/20 $155 Calls on watch in the days and week ahead.


Honorable Mentions:

Forterra, Inc. FRTA – After tagging FRTA in Friday’s premarket report, we’ve seen a pretty nice uptrend from the stock. It’s traded up from 3.66 to 5.25, a move of 43% We’ll want to continue to monitor its activity as we head through midweek.

Quotient Ltd. QTNT - We had QTNT in yesterday’s watchlist, and want to continue to track it after it made a similar move.  Also from a low of 3.66, QTNT saw a subsequent high of 5.14, which comes out to an intraday pop of 40%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IMNG Goes Parabolic & More

Innovativ Media Group, Inc. INMG

Our regular readers may be tiring of so many mentions of INMG in such a short span, but the stock continues to soar to new heights on practically a daily basis, and yesterday, the intensity of the bullish pattern increased to impressive levels.

As we were just saying in yesterday morning’s report, we had already seen no fewer than three separate multi-bag rips from INMG in the past week. We also noted Tuesday’s strong close on heavy volume, and that we’d continue to stay on its heels. It’s a good thing we did, as INMG traded in a daily range from .012 to a new high of .0285, for an intraday pop of 138%

From last Thursday, over a span of just four sessions, we’ve now witnessed a total increase of 470% over our observed low of .005. Of course, participants in our daily chats* could have caught our original alert the previous day when the stock traded as low as .0019, from which yesterday’s high represents a five session swing of 1400%

Once again, the stock maintained more than half of its daily increase into the close on more than five times the monthly average volume, so we’ll need to continue to keep our heads on a swivel with INMG. At some point, the stock will peel back off of these impressive highs and that’s when we’ll be looking for what could be a serious dip-and-rip pattern.

SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU

We alerted on SPU in Monday’s premarket report after noticing the stock was searching for a bottom, with a monstrous gap to fill on the chart to the upside.

Tuesday’s session brought an end that search for a reversal, with SPU bottoming out at 2.30 before reaching 3.3299 yesterday. That’s an upswing of 45% and we will certainly want to continue to monitor SPU, which still has a mammoth gap to fill on the chart.


04/20 Holiday Reminder: We always have our eyes on the cannabis sector, but will intensify our focus today especially, given that it is the marijuana counter-culture’s main day of celebration for the year! Many companies in this arena use it as a promotional tool, and activity in the recreational space usually reaches a frenzy during this period, so be vigilant, and Happy 4/20 to all!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ESPR Options, MVIS Recaps & More


Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. ESPR

ESPR found new highs once again yesterday for the second straight session after we initially tagged it for options trading potential on Tuesday.

In addition to monitoring Weekly In-the-money Calls, which yielded up the opportunity at gains ranging from 400-1400% on Tuesday, and continued their own runs yesterday, we also had specified a longer-term idea that continued to work extraordinarily well.

That idea, the 04/17 $90 Calls, traded from a low of 11.60 all the way up to 21.90 yesterday. It represented an excellent single-session intraday increase of 89%, and a whopping 525% jump over our observed low from Tuesday (3.50).

Big congratulations go out to any of our readers who reaped the benefits ESPR, which has easily emerged as our top target of the week! The stock is gapping up in the premarket this morning, so it appears as if we could see a further extension of those gains.


Microvision, Inc. MVIS

On Monday we tagged MVIS in a gap-up watchlist, and it has found its way into every one of our reports this week, setting new highs each day.

Yesterday the stock traded in a range from 3.42-4.23, a healthy intraday move of 24% From our observed low of 2.88 on Monday, that high marked a rise of 47% overall.

As you can see below, given the extremely over-bought look of the chart, now might be a good time to lock in any profits gained over the course of the week. This major move has been fueled by a PR out Monday in which the company announced orders totaling more than $14M it had received for components of its patented PicoP® display technology >> VIEW PR


Side Note:

Yesterday in advance of the FOMC Meeting, we cautioned readers to stay alert and watch for the effect that Janet Yellen’s commentary would have on the markets. To take advantage of this expected surge in either direction, we mentioned trading options calls on either the SPY, if the markets went up, or UVXY and/or VIX if they slid back.  Either way it played out, we said, we wanted “to stay in-the-money with our strike prices.”

As it turned out, the Fed announcement caused a sharp rise in the markets, and as a result the SPY Calls were the ones to play. We saw substantial gains on in-the-money Calls as the SPY spiked to $211.27.

For example, the SPY $209.50 Calls traded in a range from .80-2.00, for an intraday move totaling 150%  $210 Calls also spiked heavily from a low of .40 to as much as 1.59, a huge 297% jump.
