Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off a New Trading Week

Ocean Rig UDW Inc. ORIG

We’ve had ORIG on bottom-watch for just under a month now, as the stock was undergoing a consolidation that appeared unsustainable. It seemed just a matter of time before it began to rebound, so we were monitoring it for a signal and got one in a big way on Friday.

ORIG came off its newly-registered annual low of .12 and traded up as high as .237, a 98% rise which occurred on ten times the monthly average volume. More importantly, the stock managed to crack through its 50DMA at .19, and held above that mark with a closing price of .20.

We’re going to want to continue to track ORIG, looking for the registering of higher lows off of its recent bottom. The RSI is also screaming toward the power zone, so we’ll hope to see ORIG string together a multi-day run.

Camber Energy, Inc. CEI

Speaking of stocks that are gaining strength, CEI has been in a pretty convincing ascending wedge pattern recently, routinely recording higher highs and higher lows off of its annual lows established late June.

We’ve pointed out on the chart below where the next key areas of resistance are, so we’ll want to track CEI to see if it can maintain its current trajectory and make a run at those areas on the chart.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup

We had good fortune with our fresh options call yesterday, so today we’re going to be recapping the total possible gains on those plays, as well as unearthing a couple of fresh ideas to add to the mix as we close out this trading week.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Recap - Our inkling on DAL yesterday morning was to go bearish after a disappointing earnings call for the airline, with the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts. We were not disappointed with our decision to do so, as those DAL puts went on to log the following double and multi-bag intraday moves for us before lunch hour was over:

$55.50 Puts – Range: .76-1.60 – Max Gain: 110%
$55 Puts – Range: .48-1.05 – Max Gain: 119%
$54.50 Puts – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 160%
$54 Puts – Range: .13-.36 – Max Gain: 177%
$53.50 Calls – Range: .03-.17 – Max Gain: 466%

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD

Speaking of bearish options ideas, we want to enter another fresh set into the log this morning in AMD. This stock trades very cyclically, and from a technical perspective, looks as if it could continue to lose ground after a reversal this week. We’re going to place the AMD 07/21 $14-13 Puts on watch into next week in the event that our impression of this play is correct.

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. BJRI

Lastly on the options front, we are going to signal a range of extended-term calls on BJRI, which has a pretty attractive bottom setup on the chart at the moment. To take advantage of a potential sustained rebound, we’re going to be monitoring the BJRI 08/18 $35 & 40 Calls.

Bonus Idea: NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls

Diana Containerships. Inc. DCIX

DCIX went into a full-on nose dive recently after it was announced that the company would be taking out roughly an $85M loan to settle a monster pile of debt, and the investment community did not take the news well.

The stock has subsequently fallen to new all-time lows, and that’s where we come in. We’re always looking for stocks like this to put on bottom-watch. Being egregiously oversold, DCIX may yet have a bit further to fall, but we’ll want to be ready for a reversal at any time. The resulting bounce-back could be considerable.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BCCI, TPAC Reviews & More

Baristas Coffee Company, Inc.  BCCI

We had a couple of stocks from yesterday’s morning report jump out at us with excellent intraday upswings, the first of which being BCCI. The stock managed to crack into Pennyland as it ran from a daily low of .009 to as high as .014. That was highly respectable single session pop of 89% and it came on four times the 30-day average volume.

Provided BCCI can maintain a level of support at or above its previous swing high of .011 on any pullbacks, we’ll remain open to the possibility of seeing a sustained uptrend in coming sessions.

Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company, Inc. TPAC

Yesterday’s other notable mover was TPAC, and it too took its PPS to the next echelon as it began the day as a super-subpenny, and ended it in subpenny territory. We watched as it made its move from .0008 before topping out at .0014. That represented a total possible gain of 75% on the day.

Another Great Chatroom Call

Premier Biomedical, Inc. BIEI is a stock with which we are familiar, and it resurfaced yesterday in our daily live traders chat* thanks to regular participant, DJ!  As you can see from the following mobile screen snap, subsequent to DJ’s signal traders could have entered at a low of .015, and that gave way to a big run into the end of the session where the stock reached a high of .0334.

That was an intraday spike totaling 122%, and it marked the second multi-bag runner offered to the room by the illustrious DJ in as many weeks, so big cheers go out to him!

*As always, we’ll be glad to allow any readers interested in our daily chats into the room, just send a Skype contact request to user ‘stocksumo‘.

Lululemon Athletica, Inc. LULU

LULU is gapping down dramatically in premarket trading this morning, and in the event that a continued backslide occurs we’re going to be monitoring a range of puts in the LULU options chain. The dip is occurring in the wake of an earnings release that, despite including heightened revenues and profits, is being poorly-received.

Accordingly, we’re going to signal LULU Weekly $47-44.50 Puts for observation.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LFAP, GPRO Recaps & More

LifeApps Digital Media, Inc. LFAP

Our timing in alerting LFAP in yesterday’s premarket report honestly couldn’t have been any better. The stock had fallen to a new 52-week low in the previous session, and we caught it on our news scanner with a PR which highlighted the launch of the company’s Apple Healthkit-Enabled App For iOS.

The coincidence of those two events provided a springboard for the stock, which opened at its daily low of .0027 and served up the chance at a double-bagger as it surged 100% to .0054. That was followed by a short recession to .0035, and rebound back to a high of .0047, tacking on an extra 34% spike.

Cheers go out to any of our readers who were able to take advantage of this timely call!

GoPro, Inc. GPRO – Options

GPRO turned out to be one of the better options trading calls we made this week. Yesterday we mentioned that as a result of a big gap up on earnings, we’d be on the lookout for potential plays in the range of Weekly $49-51.50 Calls.

The price action on GPRO as the stock predictably performed a dip-and-rip maneuver on the chart, provided a couple of swing opportunities in each set of contracts in our targeted range. For example:

The $49 Calls shot up 61% from 3.10 to 5.00 in the first 15 minutes of trading, and dipped back to a low of 2.40 before rebounding as high as 4.50, adding another 87% swing.

The $51.50′s first ran from 1.30-2.75 gaining 112%, and followed that up with a pullback to .92 before returning to 2.16 (+135%)

Each set of contracts between those low and high ends of our selected range ($49.50, $50, $50.50, & $51′s) also served up opportunities with similar price action and possible gains for traders.

Added Notes:

We picked up on a couple of stocks with fresh PRs out this morning that also happen to be coming up off of recent lows. As LFAP decisively proved yesterday, this has the potential to create the conditions necessary for rapid gains. We’ll have both of these on our radars as the session kicks off:
