Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Hot Options Calls

Roku, Inc. ROKU

We signaled a range of ROKU calls yesterday morning after having tracked the stock itself to some nice gains in recent weeks. Despite a late pullback, ROKU produced an intraday run sufficient to propel four out of our five sets of highlighted contracts to some really nice single session moves.

With the exception of the 45.50′s which were too far out of the money, all of the targets yielded multi-bag gain opportunities on the day.

$43.50 Calls – Range: .34-.88 – Max Gain: 159%
$44 Calls – Range: .20-.70 – Max Gain: 250%
$44.50 Calls – Range: .23-.50 – Max Gain: 117%
$45 Calls – Range: .16-.48 – Max Gain: 200%

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR – Update

Just a quick update on the PBR Weekly $14.50-15.50 Calls that we signaled and rode to some nice gains earlier this week. We wanted to remind readers that those are still in play, and with PBR gapping up in the premarket once again, we’d expect to see new highs on our tracked contracts which have already produced multi-bag upswings this week.


Constellation Brands Inc. STZ

We are quite familiar with Constellation, with the beverage giant being headquartered in the same city as our home offices. STZ was building some decent momentum off of recent lows, until this morning’s earnings release, where some lackluster figures and guidance for 2019 are getting the stock crushed in the premarket. It’s testing new annual lows, which has us sniffing for a bargain.

We are taking a longer view on this company and signal a couple of sets of extended-term calls for what we expect to be a rebound from current conditions in the weeks and months ahead. We’re going to place the STZ 02/01 $150-157.50 Calls and the 04/18 $160-170 Calls on watch.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PBR Options Recap & More

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR – Recap

Yesterday morning, one of the primary focal points our premarket report was a pair of PBR options contracts, the PBR Weekly $14 & 14.50 Calls.

We cited the stock’s volatility and rapid rise over recent relative lows as the reasons for our interest, and despite yet another reversal for the markets in general, we got very solid single-session results for our PBR ideas. The $14′s traded up 95% from .21-.41, while the $14.50′s logged a double-bagger as they ran from  .05-.11, a gain of 120%

PBR is gapping up once again this morning, so we expect these figures to open up even higher. We will then be looking for a possible dip-and-rip scenario.


BioXcel Therapeutics, Inc. BTAI

We mentioned BTAI for the first time in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist, and got a solid first day performance from that stock as well, as it went in the books as the 2nd highest gainer on the Nasdaq for the session.

From a low of 4.00, BTAI went on to hit a high of 5.84, which worked out to a respectable 46% rise that also bucked the overall trend of the day. The move was facilitated by news that the company achieved positive human proof-of-concept data for acute treatment of agitation in patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, and other degenerative neural disorders.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RARX Review & More

Ra Pharmaceuticals. Inc. RARX

It was the morning of December 12th that we most recently highlighted RARX, and it is one stock that has weathered the ups and downs of the past few weeks quite well. In fact, subsequent to that report, we’ve observed a run from a low of 15.23, up as high as 22.15. That amounts to a run of 45% which is highly respectable for a $15+ stock over a short time span.

That high also represented a new 52-week high for the stock, which is especially impressive when you consider that most stocks out there are just now coming off of recently established annual lows. We’ll be highly interested to see if RARX can continue to push its upper limits.

For what it’s worth, our first-ever mention of RARX came last February, when it was trading at less than $6/share.


Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR

We’ve got a long history with PBR options that stretches back years, as you can see in our PBR Archive. Like a lot of other stocks we’re seeing, PBR is coming off of recent relative lows, and has gained a quick boost from the loosening pressure on the markets over the past week.

PBR has breached its 50-day moving average in the premarket, and we want to line up a pair of quick-strike options trading possibilities to correspond with this volatile activity. We’ll be watching the PBR Weekly $14 & 14.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ADIL, AMTX Review

Adial Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ADIL

Just as we were lauding ADIL yesterday morning on its recent bucking of the terribly bearish trend that had been building for several weeks, we get that epic one day reversal and bullish surge in the markets. It was especially fortuitous timing in the case of ADIL, being that it was already up considerably. The added boost took the stock to new heights, and added considerably to the positive movement we’ve witnessed over the past couple of weeks.

At the time of our initial alert on ADIL on the morning of the 13th, we saw trades going off as low as 2.55. As of yesterday’s new high mark set at 7.45, which represents a two week upswing of 192%


Aemetis, Inc. AMTX

As for the the other mention from yesterday’s premarket report, AMTX, it too felt the effects of the huge rally in the markets, trading up from a low of .60, up as high as .97. That worked out to an intraday push of 62%

Regardless of the market conditions, we’ll have a slot on our watch screens reserved for AMTX going forward, after the company just received a considerable round of non-toxic financing to effect the execution of the next phase of its business plan.



DVB Technologies, Inc. DVBT

Among the countless stocks that have been at or near their annual lows recently, we want to highlight DVBT, to watch going forward. There is a considerable gap on the chart which the stock has been beginning to fill. The opportunity for a considerable swing trade may be present, provided that yesterday’s activity wasn’t merely an isolated event in the midst of a continued downward trajectory for the markets in general.

In addition to the stock itself, we’ll also go ahead and signal some options to watch, specifically the DVBT 05/17 $7.50 & $10 Calls.
