Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Review

Acuity Brands, inc. AYI – Options Update

We took the opportunity to jump on some AYI calls following a poor showing from the company’s Q3 financials. We felt that the blow taken by the stock in the previous session was an overreaction, and decided to radar a couple of sets of contracts in the AYI chain to correspond with what we assumed would be a rebound from this burst of overselling,

Our targets were the AYI 07/19 $125-130 Calls.  We banked on a course correction to provide us with a push and things turned out just as we hoped they might. The stock traded in a daily range from a low of 129.90 and cruised as high as 136.74. That allowed for some very respectable intraday gain opportunities for us, and we will want to continue to monitor these in the sessions ahead.

The $125 Calls ran from 6.10-11.55 for a daily rip of 89% while the $130′s went from 2.85-7.20, a gain of 153%  A full two weeks remain before these contracts expire.


KB Homes KBH – Recap 

We also signaled our interest in some KBH calls last Thursday. Since that time, the stock has been slowly creeping upward, and we’ve realized the potential for some very nice moves in our KBH 07/19 $26-27 Calls, which experienced their lows on the morning of our initial alert, and reached new highs yesterday.

The $26 Calls ran from .35-1.05, for an even 200% burst, while the $27′s fared slightly better. Those produced a move from .15-.47, signifying a run of 213%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings and Bottom Plays

Acuity Brands, inc. AYI – Options Idea

After a lackluster Q3 report, AYI took a gut punch yesterday, but began to recover before the day was through, and appears to want to continue to course-correct today.

We are going to radar the AYI 07/19 $125-130 Calls. Even if this holiday shortened week comes to a predictably quiet close and doesn’t provide a ton of activity, we’ll still have plenty of time to get results before the 19th.


comScore, Inc. SCOR 

We’ve found what appears to be a prime bottom-watch candidate in SCOR. The stock is egregiously oversold at the present time, and has managed a couple of positive sessions this week.

The volatility potential on this stock is high. It’s not unreasonable to think that it could return to the $10 level or better over a period of several weeks or perhaps even months. We’ll designate this as a longer-term recovery play.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday Wrap-Up

Wrapping Up a Solid Week

Once again, we’ll turn in our cards for the week with multiple multi-bag winners. Our quick-strike options ideas are second to none. We’d invite anyone who disputes that to point us to a better options newsletter!

We’ve been running with FDX and MU since Wednesday morning’s premarket report. We had already seen gains in the 500% range on FDX and the 100-200% range on MU that day.

We continued to monitor the FDX calls, as well as roll up to a higher strike price on MU for yesterday’s session. Once again we met with great success. So, first thing this morning, we want to take a look at the updated figures of the total possible gains on these plays.

FedEx Corp. FDX
 Weekly $157.50-160 Calls.

$157.50 Calls – Range: .59-6.60 – Max Gain: 1017%
$160 Calls – Range: .35-4.40 – Max Gain: 1157%
_____

Micron Technology, Inc. MU  Weekly $37 Calls.

$37 Calls – Range: .31-1.39 – Max Gain: 348%

We’re going to roll up on MU once again to stay close to the action, and will be tracking the $38-38.50 Calls as we close out out another great week for options trading. Just remember, never trade options with a weekly expiration on Friday unless you’re an expert level trader with access to disposable funds!

J.Jill, Inc. JILL

We also wanted to provide a quick update on a stock we tagged for observation a couple of weeks back on the 12th. JILL had been building a solid base and moving up slowly since then, up until yesterday when it really kicked things into another gear.

We observed a low of 1.54 subsequent to our initial alert, and yesterday’s new high came in at 2.29, marking an upswing of 49%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh AMPG News

Amplitech Group, Inc. AMPG – Big News Alert

First thing’s first- Amplitech has just dropped a fresh PR this morning in the premarket that we wanted to pass along to our readers. As we were just mentioning yesterday, this stock has made a solid 28% increase since we first began tracking it on April 1st (.043-.055), so we’re very interested to take a look at the key news update that has just been provided.

For a sum of just over $2M, AMPG has executed an acquisition of the business assets of privately-held, NY-based, microwave tech firm, Specialty Microwave Corp. (SMW), which boasts an average annual rate of $1.75M in sales over the past three years. A continuation of that trend following the final completion of the acquisition would nearly double AMPG’s 2018 sales! (>>View PR)

What this means for AMPG stock, which was already plenty attractive to us prior to learning of this development, is massive potential for more gains in the immediate future. Remember, we’re dealing with an incredibly tight share structure in AMPG, with just 22M shares in the float, so news of such an acquisition has the potential to be a springboard to a significantly higher PPS!

The deal is for all of SMW’s assets, customers, team members, and upon final completion in the next quarter, AMPG will move its own operations to SMW’s headquarters, just a few miles down the road from Bohemia in nearby Ronkonkoma, NY, and is expected to be wrapped up by July.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup

Dicks Sporting Goods, Inc. DKS – Recap

We cast a wide net with respect to the DKS options we included in yesterday’s premarket report, marking the Weekly $35-40 Calls for observation on the heels of the company’s earnings release.

While there were gains on the table for all ten of the contracts in our specified range, we won’t list all of them out, but rather just provide the bottom and the top of the range, and let our readers fill in the blanks.

The $35 Calls ran from 1.50-3.99 for an intraday move of 166%  The $40′s traded up from .10-.45, representing an upswing of 350%  Agiain, increasing, commensurate gains were available throughout our designated range of contract sets.


HP, Inc. HPQ – Recap

We also formulated an idea for the HPQ options chain in yesterday’s report, the HPQ Weekly $21-22 Calls, and were presented with some big single session moves there as well, including a five and a six-bagger!

This was another post-earnings idea, which is generally when we like to strike, at a time when price action and volatility are increased to significant levels. It provided for the following chances for profit:

$21 Calls – Range: .40-1.21 – Max Gain: 214%
$21.50 Calls – Range: .11-.76 – Max Gain: 590%
$22 Calls – Range: .05-.35 – Max Gain: 600%
