Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KODK Options & More

Eastman Kodak Co. KODK

In a surprise development yesterday, Kodak announced that it would be the latest company to hop on the cryptocurrency bandwagon, with the upcoming launching of its own crypto coin, KODAKcoin. It is said to be in development for a photo rights licensing platform the photography pioneer is working on.

While that’s all well and good, what we have seen on the KODK chart amounts to little more than a hype fueled surge, which we believe to be unsustainable over the long term. What we want to do to try to use this situation to our advantage is set ourselves up with some bearish options ideas to follow in the weeks ahead.

We;re going to signal the KODK 02/16 $15 & $12.50 Puts. It gives us plenty of time to see KODK top out and begin to come back to Earth, which would certainly provide chances in those contracts on the way down.


Xunlei Ltd. XNET

The most recent time that we tagged XNET was a month ago tomorrow, on December 11th, and shortly thereafter the stock would log a low of 12.30. From that point it launched into what has been a very solid run over the past few weeks.

The stock cracked the twenty-dollar barrier yesterday, and this morning in the premarket, has reached a new high of 24.90 which marks a double-bag move of 102% in just four short weeks!

XNET had a huge similar run from October to November as well, where it topped out at an even $27/share. We’ll continue to monitor the stock in coming sessions, and look for it to retest those previous highs.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Trades & More

More Winning Options Trades

We submitted a pair of daytrading ideas for the NVDA and ROKU options chains, and it’s no surprise that both ideas turned out to be winners for us. Our lack of shock stems from the fact that we have been absolutely crushing it when it comes to options. We always have solid success in this arena, but the past few weeks have been more loaded with huge gainers for us more than even we are accustomed to, and Friday continued that trend convincingly.

We had the NVIDIA Corp. – NVDA Weekly $205-212.50 Calls as well as the Roku, Inc. – ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls on watch for the day, and there wasn’t a single contract contained within either of those ranges that didn’t provide us with some really nice chances for big gains. Those were as follows:

NVDA Weekly $205-212.50 Calls
$205 Calls – Range: 7.50-13.59 – Max Gain: 81%
$207.50 Calls – Range: 5.55-11.06 – Max Gain: 99%
$210 Calls – Range: 3.65-8.60 – Max Gain: 136%
$212.50 Calls – Range: 1.90-7.22 – Max Gain: 280%

ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls
$28 Calls – Range: 2.60-8.00 – Max Gain: 207%
$29 Calls – Range: 1.90-7.22 – Max Gain: 280%
$30 Calls – Range: 1.10-6.50 – Max Gain: 491%


JB&ZJMY Holding Company, Inc. JBZY

We also want to make note of JBZY, which has a pretty good chart setup at the moment. The stock was trending up off of its 50DMA throughout last week, and is sitting at .08 currently.

With a recent run to .16 showing us what this play is capable of in just a short time, we’ll go ahead and put it on watch as we start off a new trading week. As we’ve pointed out on the snapshot below, another bullish cross looks inevitable for the MACD.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings Calls, Bottom-Plays & More


Momo, Inc. MOMO

We began tracking MOMO on Friday after noticing the stock coming off of a bottom, and we’ve seen an appreciable move to the upside in the ensuing sessions.

The stock is gapping up this morning on a strong earnings report (>>View Highlights), reaching a high of 12.73 in the premarket. We caught MOMO at a low of 11.52 on Friday and have thus far seen an 11% increase, so we’ll want to leave it on the radar and watch for higher lows and higher highs.


NQ Mobile, Inc. NQ

Speaking of earnings plays, we’re going to be tracking NQ closely over the next couple of sessions. The stock has been trending off of a bottom for the past three sessions and this morning, we’re seeing the stock gap up considerably.

Things are likely to get interesting as the company is slated to release earnings post-market today, and a big PR hit wires just an hour ago.

Today’s News: NQ Mobile Inc. Enters into a Definitive Agreement for the FL Mobile Divestment (>>View PR)


Hercules Offshore, Inc. HERO

We’re also going to be monitoring HERO, which, like the aforementioned stock, has been establishing a solid move up off of recently-registered two-month lows.

As you can see on the included snapshot of the chart, HERO went on a massive run from the .70-range to more than 4.00 from February to April. Indicators are ripening for what could be the next big leg up after the recent consolidation, so we’ll be sure to keep an eye peeled for the possibility of a continued upsurge.


The Children’s Place, Inc. PLCE

PLCE is yet another bottom-bouncer with earnings that is gapping up in early trading. We’re going to signal a range of options contracts for observation to possibly take advantage of the momentum. Our target range is going to be the PLCE Weekly $70-75 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DRMC Review & More

Definitive Rest Mattress Co. DRMC

To start things off this morning we wanted to provide an update on DRMC, which made an excellent intraday move to start the session yesterday.

When last we looked in on DRMC at the end of the short week on Thursday, we had just observed a decent 35% intraday run in the prior session, and left our readers with a closing thought that would end up serving us well. We noted that the stock had been trading relatively thinly as a general rule, and that “a pickup in buying pressure could really send DRMC for a ride, so we’ll keep watch for that, and for the stock to continue maintaining support above the 50DMA”

It’s a good thing that we did keep watch, because the stock would both maintain above the 50DMA (.002), and see the necessary surge in volume to make its mark. Starting out from a morning low of .0037, DRMC bulled its way up to a high of .0079 in roughly the first 45 minutes of trading. That worked out to an incredible single session rip totaling 113%  From our observed low on Tuesday (.0022), yesterday’s high registered as a two-session swing of 259%

The excellent spike in volume came in conjunction with the company’s announcement that it was adding Carbon Fiber to its list of manufacturing technologies, as well as launching its new website. >>View PR


Regen BioPharma, Inc. RGBP

RGBP is hitting our scanner this morning for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the company released a positive PR regarding one of its new drug candidates, HemaXellerate. The results of an animal study conducted at the behest of the FDA proved promising with regard to the treatment’s path to approval for clinical trials.

Secondly, RGBP represents a potential opportunity as a play trading near a recent relative bottom. We’re going to look for RGBP to record higher highs and higher lows. and hold support above Tuesday’s swing low of .12 in order for us to remain interested.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ESPR Options, MVIS Recaps & More


Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. ESPR

ESPR found new highs once again yesterday for the second straight session after we initially tagged it for options trading potential on Tuesday.

In addition to monitoring Weekly In-the-money Calls, which yielded up the opportunity at gains ranging from 400-1400% on Tuesday, and continued their own runs yesterday, we also had specified a longer-term idea that continued to work extraordinarily well.

That idea, the 04/17 $90 Calls, traded from a low of 11.60 all the way up to 21.90 yesterday. It represented an excellent single-session intraday increase of 89%, and a whopping 525% jump over our observed low from Tuesday (3.50).

Big congratulations go out to any of our readers who reaped the benefits ESPR, which has easily emerged as our top target of the week! The stock is gapping up in the premarket this morning, so it appears as if we could see a further extension of those gains.


Microvision, Inc. MVIS

On Monday we tagged MVIS in a gap-up watchlist, and it has found its way into every one of our reports this week, setting new highs each day.

Yesterday the stock traded in a range from 3.42-4.23, a healthy intraday move of 24% From our observed low of 2.88 on Monday, that high marked a rise of 47% overall.

As you can see below, given the extremely over-bought look of the chart, now might be a good time to lock in any profits gained over the course of the week. This major move has been fueled by a PR out Monday in which the company announced orders totaling more than $14M it had received for components of its patented PicoP® display technology >> VIEW PR


Side Note:

Yesterday in advance of the FOMC Meeting, we cautioned readers to stay alert and watch for the effect that Janet Yellen’s commentary would have on the markets. To take advantage of this expected surge in either direction, we mentioned trading options calls on either the SPY, if the markets went up, or UVXY and/or VIX if they slid back.  Either way it played out, we said, we wanted “to stay in-the-money with our strike prices.”

As it turned out, the Fed announcement caused a sharp rise in the markets, and as a result the SPY Calls were the ones to play. We saw substantial gains on in-the-money Calls as the SPY spiked to $211.27.

For example, the SPY $209.50 Calls traded in a range from .80-2.00, for an intraday move totaling 150%  $210 Calls also spiked heavily from a low of .40 to as much as 1.59, a huge 297% jump.
