Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NTNX Update & More

Nutanix, Inc. NTNX

We began highlighting NTNX just a week ago in our report from the morning of March 12th. On that day the stock saw a low of 35.20, as we signaled the NTNX 05/19 $40-42.50 Calls for longer-term observation.

We wanted to provide an update on both the stock and our options targets this morning, as NTNX has produced a very solid and steady uptrend since the morning of our initial alert. Yesterday, NTNX ran to a new high of 42.21. That marked a 1-week increase of 20% and it allowed for some nice moves in our highlighted contracts.

The $40 Calls have thus far traded in a range from 1.96 to 4.20 for a gain of 114% while the $42.50′s ran from 1.21-2.85, an increase of 136% NTNX is only halfway to filling the topside gap on itas chart, and there’s plenty of time remaining until expiration. We’ll be interested to see if the stock can pile on even more gains.

Nutanix, Inc. NTNX – Fresh Options Idea

Today is figuring to be options heavy, with a few ideas jumping out to us here in the premarket this morning. NTNX, the first on our list, is currently exhibiting a chart setup that we’re constantly on the lookout for. We’ve got a stock rising up off of recent relative lows, with a massive gap to the upside, and a couple of our favorite buy indicators really standing out.

The RSI is attempting to come off of being egregiously oversold, while the MACD is rapidly converging toward an impending bullish cross. From the current juncture, a more pronounced rebound for NTNX looks imminent. We’re going to go ahead and signal the NTNX 05/19 $40-42.50 Calls to coincide with the present scenario.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HSY Options & More

The Hershey Co. HSY

We’re looking at one of the biggest players in the Halloween candy game in Hershey as we kick off a fresh trading week. The company reported its Q3 earnings on Thursday, and despite a frosty reception from Wall Street, we are liking the look of this play.

The company asserts that it is on a good path, having had what the CEO calls a game changing year. While the stock did see its biggest daily loss since 2016 on Thursday following the report, it did not turn into a multi-day slide. Coupled with what looks to be another rebound day for the markets at large, and we’re interested in signaling a few HSY Calls.

We’ll place the HSY Weekly $102-104 Calls on watch this morning.

Bonus Idea:
Nutanix, Inc. NTNX 01/18 $42.50 & $45 Calls


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

On Tuesday, we noted that with such a sharp and rapid downturn in the markets, that a rebound was certain to be in the cards for the SPY. It led us to signal interest in the SPY 10/31 $275-277 Calls, which will certainly be in play today as the SPY is gapping up big this morning in the premarket.

We’ll be back tomorrow morning with a recap of what is likely to be a cleanup session for these plays today.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Success & More

Options Success

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options  -We signaled a range of options contracts on NFLX in yesterday’s premarket report, citing the earnings beat of the previous afternoon. We specifically mentioned that we were looking out for a dip-and-rip formation on the chart and the stock produced a classic example of such. NFLX’s big day, which ultimately facilitated those multi-bag profit opportunities, was fueled by an impressive 5 million new subscribers to the Netflix streaming service.

Right out of the gate, it dipped briefly to the high $175 area before going on an hours-long bullish push to the upper $184′s. That activity led to some really nice gains in our highlighted options, the NFLX Weekly $172.50-180 Calls:

$172.50 Calls – Range: 3.80-12.75 – Max Gain: 236%
$175 Calls – Range: 2.50-10.50 – Max Gain: 320%
$177.50 Calls – Range: 1.40-8.30– Max Gain: 493%
$180 Calls – Range: .85-6.42 – Max Gain: 655%

Nutanix, Inc. NTNX – We also want to circle back to recap the moves made by an options idea we included in Friday morning’s report. NTNX continued to climb yesterday, and so the NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls we signaled have turned up some really nice moves.

$20 Calls – Range: 1.65-3.90 – Max Gain: 136%
$22.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.56 – Max Gain: 290%
$25 Calls – Range: .05-.28 – Max Gain: 460%


Yesterday’s Movers

We also had a number of the stocks that we highlighted in yesterday’s report yield chances for solid gains, and of them gave us a reason to look out for further moves:

Caprico Therapeutics, Inc. CAPR - The biggest gainer of the day from our mentions and on the NASDAQ itself, CAPR traded in a range from a low of .901, on up to a high of 1.62. That worked out to an 80% rip, and it came on an incredible 291X the monthly average volume.

The huge session was catalyzed by the announcement that the FDA has granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation to CAP-1002, Capricor’s development candidate for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. (>>View PR)

Marijuana Company of America, Inc. MCOA - There was a nice move in MCOA as the stock traded up 38% from .02685-.037 on close to five times its monthly average volume, and the table may be set for a continuation of the trend with a new PR hitting the wires this morning.

The company is reporting that it has received the first round of funding for a joint venture to construct a 30,000 sq. ft. greenhouse grow facility in Oroville, Washington. Once completed, the greenhouse facility will accommodate a cannabis production and processing tenant with a Tier 3, I-502 license… (>>View PR)
_________

Novavax Inc. NVAX - This one recorded a very respectable gain on the day, running steadily from 1.17 up to 1.53, a 31% upswing. More importantly, the stock maintained the vast majority of its daily advance into the close, so we’ll want to continue to track NVAX as well.
