Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LLY Options Recap & More

Eli Lilly and Co. LLY – Options Update

In our premarket report on Friday morning, we finished off with a set of fresh options ideas for the LLY chain, and were met with nice gain opportunities on the day on all accounts.

In addition to a daytrading idea with the LLY Weekly $72 and $72.50 Calls, which worked out in spades, we also got some really good initial movement out of the longer term target we put forth, the 01/20 $75 Calls.

Weekly $72 Calls – Range: .20-1.25  – Max Gain: 475%
Weekly $72.50 Calls – Range: .15-.80  – Max Gain: 433%
1/20 $75 Calls – Range: .77-1.39  – Max Gain: 81%

We offer congratulations to anyone who benefited from the short-term ideas, and we’ll be sure to stay on the trail of those 01/20 $75 Calls in the weeks ahead.


Globalstar, Inc. GSAT

We caught a glimpse of GSAT on our scanner this morning and feel it’s worthy of mentioning, based on a number of factors. Last week, the moves that the stock had been making off of its recent relative lows in the low .70-range began to increase.

On Thursday, the stock bullishly breached its 50DMA, culminating in a huge spike in volume on Friday. Roughly six times the monthly average trading volume accompanied a break of the dollar mark. We’re going to put this on watch as a possible momentum play.


AmpliPhi BioSciences, Inc. APHB

Speaking of bottom-bouncers, APHB cropped on our scan as well, and it has a look of high potential as it’s coming up off of its recently established annual lows.

In addition, there’s a gap to fill on the chart to the upside, and with the stock already trading up in the premarket, that’s a real possibility here. With such a ripe chart, we’ll be very interested to follow APHB’s activity out of the gate this morning.

Potential Bottom-Bounce Plays

This morning we’ve taken notice of a couple of stocks that are trading near recent relative lows, which have also begun to show some life this week. 

The Female Health Co. FHCO – We like the look of the chart on this one, which is coming off a multiple bottom and just managed to crack through and hold support above its 50DMA. The next area of resistance appears to be the channel between its recent swing high at 1.45 and the 200DMA of 1.57.

Nate’s Food Co. Inc. NHMD – This stock has appeared on our watchlist in the past, and today, we’re circling back around to it purely from the look of the chart. Several indicators are pointing toward the chance of some sizable upswings in sessions to come, so we’ll want to monitor the situation closely.

We’re going to want to see it get back above and hold the 200DMA at .0089 as support going forward.

Tesla Motors Corp. TSLA – Options Update

Our bearish sentiment on TSLA yesterday ended up working in our favor quite well, as the intraday volatility provided traders with not one but three chances to execute lucrative swing trades.  Our specified target range was the TSLA Weekly $200-195 Puts; those three opportunities on the day extended to all three sets of contracts, and were as follows:

$200 Puts – 4.45-8.45 (+55%), 4.15-7.50 (+81%), 4.36-6.35 (+46%)

$197.50 Puts – 4.06-6.35 (+56%), 2.83-5.39 (+90%), 2.83-4.51 (+59%)

$195 Puts – 2.44-5.13 (+110%),1.87-3.81 (+104%), 1.70-2.89 (+70%)

Amid the bombshell that Britain passed a referendum effecting its exit from the European Union (at least a two year process), world markets in general are all feeling the strain at present. TSLA has hit a low of $186 in the premarket, so our observed contracts all stand to produce further gains this morning.

To get ourselves a little closer to the heaviest action in the event of a continued backslide for TSLA, we may consider rolling down our strike range to include the $192.50 and $190 Puts as well.

FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS:

As we’ve done many times before when attempting to use overall market conditions to our advantage, we’re going to be tracking some SPY Calls for potential daytrades. As long as the SPY can hold above $200, we could be in line to see some major volatility in the SPY Weekly $200-205 Calls. As always, we must issue a strong note of caution with regard to trading weekly contracts on a Friday. It should only ever be attempted by advanced-level traders!

We also want to submit another familiar face for a potential play with much less urgency. For a longer-term idea, we’ll be putting the PBR 07/15 $6.50 and $7 Calls on our radar.


Gold Watchlist:

We also want to provide our readers with a smattering of gold-related stocks to watch this morning. Currencies are taking a big hit, which usually means an influx of investor confidence in precious metals. As such, we will naturally look to plays like these for quick-hit opportunities:

LODE, PGLC, VGZ, XRA,TRX, GORO
