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%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RAS Update, Options & More

RAIT Financial Trust RAS

RAS was a point of focus in yesterday’s premarket report. We highlighted it as a stock that had been hammered back for the better part of the past two months, which was long overdue for a rebound.

Timing just doesn’t get any better, with RAS having just registered a brand new 52-week low in the previous session, the reversal we were after occurred as the stock traded in a daily range from a low of 2.30 on up to 2.57. While only a modest 12% increase, we’ll be very interested to continue monitoring RAS in impending sessions. The stock closed just a few pennies below the HOD on roughly 4.5X the 3-month average volume.

We’ll look for RAS to keep logging higher lows and establish a sustained recovery, and remember, there’s a gap on the chart beginning at around 3.15, the filling of which would put the price back at $4.

New Options Idea – The Walt Disney Co. DIS

There’s an unusual amount of excitement surrounding Disney this week, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh movie in the Star Wars franchise set to hit theaters on Friday.

Add in the recent revelation that Alibaba (BABA) has teamed up with the company to distribute Disney films in China through a new device called DisneyLife, and we’re very interested in the potential activity these events could fuel in the DIS options chain.

As a result, we want to track contracts in the range of Weekly DIS $112-116 Calls for quick-strike chances, to try and take advantage of the current excitement. The stock is gapping up significantly in the premarket, so we’ll be on the lookout for an early dip-and-rip.
