Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas

Fresh Options Ideas

We’re going to start off the new trading week by identifying a couple of options ideas we’re seeing based on the chart setups of Under Armour Inc. (UAA) and CSX Corp (CSX).

In both cases, the stocks have been on a bit of a backslide, but went on to record bullish sessions on Friday. We’re going to look for confirmed reversals on both of these, and be ready with some options ideas if they can establish more sustained rebounds. On each chart, there are gaps to the upside, which is another thing we look for.

For Under Armour, which is giving off a strong multiple-bottom signal, we’re going to track the UAA 09/01 $17-19 Calls, and for CSX Railroads, we’ll want to look after the CSX 09/01 $51-53 Calls.


ImmunoGen Inc. IMGN

We also want to keep IMGN on our radars as we kick things off this week. We signaled it in Friday’s premarket report and it had a modest yet solid session on the heels of an earnings beat. We saw a low of 6.29, and this morning in early trading the stock has reached a high of 7.41.  While that’s only an 18% rise at the moment, we’ll want to keep an eye peeled for another bullish session.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Huge Day for MYO & More

Myomo, Inc. MYO

We were just mentioning yesterday to kick off the week, how our mention of MYO in Friday’s premarket report. and how it had run from 10.10 to 18.20 for an 80% move on big volume. We stated our ongoing interest in the stock, and even cautioned that a dip-and-rip formation could materialize early on before MYO went on to confirm its status as a multi-day runner.

We don’t own a crystal ball, but you might have had a hard time believing that yesterday. The stock behaved precisely as we suggested it may, pulling back slightly in the first 15 minutes of the session before embarking on a day-long bull run to new highs.

MYO dipped to 14.51 before ripping its way to 23.20, for an intraday push of 60% and a two-session swing from our observed low on Friday (10.10) amounting to 130% We can’t remember the last time we called a ten dollar stock and saw it record a double-bagger inside of two days, but it doesn’t happen very often for stocks trading at a high multiple. Cheers to anyone who was along for the ride!


ReWalk Robotics Ltd. RWLK

We also want to give ourselves a quick pat on the back for spotting RWLK  in the premarket yesterday and including it in our report. The stock had just begun to inch up on Friday, but yesterday its run realy kicked into gear.

RWLK ran from a low of 1.40-1.95 for a modest yet solid intraday pop of 39%, but that figure has been notably extended in the premarket this morning with a new high of 2.10, which pushes our observed range in under 24 hours to an even 50%

We’ll look for RWLK to establish higher highs and higher lows once again to confirm it as a multi-day runner and stay interested in tracking it moving forward.


Delcath Systems, Inc. DCTH

We also want to do a recap of DCTH, which we last mentioned at the beginning of last week on the 12th. Subsequent to that report, we observed as DCTH saw a low of .0413 the following day. Despite having a little trouble breaking through resistance in later sessions, yesterday did the trick as the stock hit .10, marking a move of 142% in the span of one trading week.


Enphase Energy, Inc. ENPH

ENPH has slowly but surely been making some headway in coming up off of its annual lows established in May, but this morning the stock is gapping considerably, into the ninety-cent range.

We want to place this stock on watch in the wake of what we believe to be the catalyst for this activity – an Edgar filing alluding to a “Master Licensing Agreement” the company granted to Flextronics Industrial, Ltd. (>>View 8-K)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MYO, HOS Reviews & More

Myomo, Inc. MYO

In terms of intraday gainers, MYO stole the show on Friday after appearing in our premarket report. Considering the fact that it was a ten dollar stock to begin with, the single-session rip we got from this play was fantastic.

From a low of 10.10 in the morning, MYO cruised its way to a high of 18.20 on over three times the monthly average volume. That worked out to an 80% move, and the stock closed with strength.

We’re going to be looking to MYO again as we kick off a new trading week today, as the stock has already bested Friday’s highs in premarket trading this morning. There may be a dip-and-rip formation, or a straight continuation of momentum, but either way we’ll want to see higher highs and higher lows established in order to confirm MYO as a multi-day runner and remain interested.


Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc. HOS

Coming in as an honorable mention, also from Friday’s report, was HOS. The stock traded up from 2.26 and ran as high as 2.93. That logs as a intraday rise of 30%, and it traded six times its 30-day average volume.

Like the above-mentioned play, HOS had a pretty solid close, and is showing signs of potentially sustaining the trend it established leading into the end of last week.


Smart & Final Stores, Inc. SFS

Many grocery stocks took a hit at the end of last week amid the huge Amazon-Whole Foods deal, and there could definitely be rebound opportunities forthcoming as a result.

One such stock that caught our eye is SFS, which was hammered down to new 52-week lows on Friday. Purely from a technical standpoint we’d be interested in this for potential bottom plays in the stock and the options chain as well. We’ll signal the SFS 08/18 $10 Calls for observation over an extended term.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EKSO New Highs & More

Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. EKSO

What started as a nominal gainer that came off of our extended watchlist on Wednesday, EKSO rolled its 37% performance over into yesterday’s session, carrying on the multiday action. After a  strong close at 1.81 on Thursday, we said we’d be interested in continuing to track EKSO as we head into week’s end, and it was a great idea.

The stock continued its ascent to a new high  and reached 2.18. From Wednesday’s low of 1.40, it works out to a respectable two day swing of 56% Just as we mentioned yesterday, the stock closed strong again, and we’ll want to keep monitoring for higher highs and higher lows .


Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX – Options Idea

Valeant has been working its way down to an area of relative support recently, consolidating after a nice run off of its 52-week lows from April to May. This morning in the premarket, we’ve taken notice of the fact that VRX is gapping up considerably in the premarket.

We want to be waiting in the wings with an options idea to take advantage of the action following what could very well be an early dip-and-rip formation. We’ve called VRX and a ton of other such stocks in these positions, and done very well in the past.

We’ll be looking to the VRX Weekly $12 and 12.50 Calls* for possible swing trades today.

*We never include mentions of weekly options contracts on a Friday without explicitly warning our readers that trading weekly options at the end of the week is a hugely risky proposition that should not be attempted unless you are an expert trader! 


Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPE

We want to point out a possible momentum play in AMPE. We’ve talked about this stock in the past, and as you can see from the included chart snapshot, it has been mounting a decent rebound effort off of a double bottom over the past few sessions.

We’re going to place AMPE on watch into next week, as a similar move to the one exhibited by the stock earlier this spring would mean considerable gains from this point.
