Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NKE Options & More

Nike, Inc. NKE 

We’re seeing a possible opportunity for NKE to close out the week today, despite the continued bearish activity for the markets at large. Like a lot of stocks, NKE is at its lowest prices in quite some time; in this case, seven months. But we are seeing the makings of a potential quick-strike play here, and we’d like to signal some options ideas to coincide with the present situation.

We;re going to focus in on the NKE Weekly $73-74 Calls after the company logged a beat on both earnings and revenues in its post-market release yesterday. Additionally the company provided stout guidance, so if anything has a chance to buck the trend and put forth a bullish session today, it would be Nike.


New Age Beverages, Inc. NBEV

Speaking of bucking the trend, NBEV, another anomalous performer that we’ve been tracking for quite some time has been flying in the face of current market sentiment for six weeks now.

When we high;lighted this stock on the morning of November 15th, it was trading for as little as 3.30, and after weeks of bullish sentiment, the stock has reached new highs at 6.90, which accounts for a move of 109%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & HEMP

Options Review

We’ve placed a lot of focus on options plays this week, and thanks to the help of a solid day for the markets, we saw excellent opportunities for quick strike profits in a couple of them yesterday. Our primary order of business today is to go over the gains that have been made possible by some of our ideas.

The Netflix Inc. NFLX 01/25 $290-300 Calls were an idea we submitted in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and we saw some moderate increases in all five of those contracts, which were as follows:

$290 Calls – Range: 14.15-16.30 - Max Gain: 15%
$292.50 Calls – Range: 11.00-14.70 – Max Gain: 34%
$295 Calls – Range: 10.05-16.25 - Max Gain: 62%
$297.50 Calls – Range: 11.25-14.00 – Max Gain: 24%
$300 Calls – Range: 8.60-13.07 - Max Gain: 52%
____

We also formulated an idea for the SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) on Tuesday morning, the SPY Weekly $266.50-268.50 Calls, and those have flourished thanks to the bullish session for stocks in general yesterday. Here are the ranges on those contracts so far:

$266.50 Calls – Range: 1.25-3.55 - Max Gain: 184%
$267 Calls – Range: 1.02-3.20 – Max Gain: 214%
$267.50 Calls – Range: .89-2.86 - Max Gain: 221%
$268 Calls – Range: .74-2.60 – Max Gain: 251%
$268.50 Calls – Range: .66-2.28 - Max Gain: 245%

_______



Hemp, Inc. HEMP

We also wanted to make mention of HEMP, a long-time familiar play which we most recently tagged on November 30th, subsequent to which time we would observe a low of .0292.

Thanks to the passing of the farm bill in the House by a landslide, hemp and its byproducts, which includes CBD, has just been legalized at the federal level. That means big things for HEMP, and many other companies involved in CBD production and distribution. The news led to a new high of .045 for HEMP- a 54% move over our observed low from a couple of weeks ago.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WMT, CSCO & More

 Options Ideas

We’re sticking with options as we head into the end of what has been quite a difficult week for stocks in general. All things considered, we still feel it’s the most probable way of coming by short term gain opportunities, even amid less-than-ideal conditions.

Walmart, Inc. WMT – Walmart reported its Q3 earnings this morning, and looks like our top target for the day as a result. Heightened sales, both brick and mortar and via Walmart.com, was the name of the game, as the company jacked up guidance on profits for the 2019 full year.

These developments are definitely moving the needle this morning, so we’re going to want to track the WMT Weekly $101-104 Calls.
_____

Cisco Systems, Inc. CSCO – In its own Q1 report in the post-market yesterday, we have an untraded-upon earnings and revenue beat for CSCO, so we’re also going to formulate an idea here.

In conjunction with a solid multiple bottom formation on the chart, the present conditions may favor our chances for a quick strike trade on the CSCO Weekly $45-50-47.50 Calls.
_____

Bonus Idea:

AMRN Weekly $15.50-17 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: YGYI Review & More

Youngevity International Inc. YGYI – Recap

Last Thursday morning, we included a tag of YGYI, and today we wanted to swing back around and update readers on the stock’s performance.

YGYI ended up producing a significant dip-and-rip opportunity, coming down to an even 6.00 low before taking off and hitting a high of 10.95 yesterday, in one of its biggest single-session moves of all time. It worked out to an 83% upswing. and put YGYI in blue skies, not to mention grabbing it the top gainer spot on the whole of the NASDAQ.



eBay, Inc.  EBAY – Update

We also want to circle around for the extended term options plays we selected for observation, also in last Thursday’s report. Those were the EBAY 11/23 $33-35 Calls, and they’ve gotten off to a good start for us so far. In the four sessions since we highlighted these plays, all three have produce gains of a significant nature:

$33 Puts – Range: 1.22-2.45 – Max Gain: 101%
$34 Puts – Range: .82-1.75 - Max Gain: 113%
$35 Puts – Range: .60-.86 - Max Gain: 43%

With tons of time remaining until expiration, we’ll be eager to continue tracking these ideas for further moves.
