Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Retail Focus

Retail Focus

Macy’s, Inc. M - With the holiday season fast approaching, we’ll be on the lookout for retail plays with good upside potential, and Macy’s could be a good fit in that regard.

You can take a look at the chart below and see that the stock has just begun to show signs of a rebound after getting absolutely hammered earlier this month. Indicators suggest that the stock is rather oversold.

We’re going to radar a set of longer-term contracts, the M 11/17 $23 Calls, which should see a nice move if the stock can indeed regain the ground it’s lost over the past few weeks. There’s also a gap on the chart to the $28 area, the filling of which would propel those contracts to huge gains.


______

JC Penney Co. Inc. JCP - Another retailer we’ve talked about many times in the past, particularly leading up to and during the holidays, is JCP.

Similar to the above mentioned play, the stock took a punishing hit to its PPS over the past few weeks, and has shown the beginnings of a rebound. It has an even larger gap on the chart, and a chance to fill it even quicker.

The stock itself could end up being a good recovery play, but we’ll also want to put a couple sets of options contracts on watch as well, with the JCP 11/17 $4 and 4.50 Calls.


______

More Retail Ideas – Also in the retail sector, and each with premarket earnings beats, are American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO and Express, Inc. EXPR. We’re going to radar the AEO Weekly $12 & 12.50 Calls, and the EXPR 09/15 $6 & $7 Calls.


Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. ZN

We also wanted to quickly update readers on the performance of ZN, after it was a topic of discussion in yesterday’s premarket report. While the stock didn’t break out by any means, it did trade from a low of 2.95 to a high of 3.42 for a modest 16% intraday move.

It did, however, manage to close just two cents below its high of day, so we’ll have it on continued watch this midweek, looking for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KORS Recap & More

Michael Kors Holdings, Ltd. KORS – Options Recap

We took the opportunity to signal some KORS options yesterday in the wake of the company’s convincing earnings beat, and it was a good thing we did, because the stock had a monstrous session, running from a low of 42.71 to a high of 45.73.

That was more than enough of an intraday push to facilitate some really great gain opportunities for anyone who looked into our highlighted ideas, the KORS Weekly $41.50-43.50 Calls. Each and every contract in our specified range erupted with big time multi-bag moves on the day exceeding 1000%, which were as follows:

$41.50 Calls – Range: .31-3.97 – Max Gain: 1180%
$42 Calls – Range: .25-3.45  – Max Gain: 1280%
$42.50 Calls – Range: .20-2.65 – Max Gain: 1225%
$43 Calls – Range: .14-2.75 – Max Gain: 1864%
$43.50 Calls – Range: .13-2.25 – Max Gain: 1630%

This was certainly one of our sharpest calls and greatest plays of the entire summer so far, so cheers go out to anyone who hopped on for the ride!


Ubiquitech Software Corp. UBQU

The UBQU newsreel has been hot over the last week, wherein we learned that the company’s HempLife subsidiary was expanding its line of CBD products to include offerings for pets, and that UBQU also launched a new division that brings it into the trendy cryptocurrency space.

Along with a confluence of recent developments, we are also seeing bottom-bounce potential in the UBQU chart at the present time.The stock has essentially been getting beaten back all summer long, so we’ll want to begin watching for the possibility of a convincing rebound in the days ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Ideas & More

Harley Davidson, Inc. HOG – Options

We were passively observing HOG last week as the stock was coming off its newly registered annual low (46.00), and we want to kick off this trading week by entering a potential options idea into the log. The stock is is extreme oversold territory, and we feel it’s just a matter of time before a more convincing rebound occurs.

That’s why we want to wait in the wings and observe the HOG 09/01 $49-51 Calls, which could stand to make some very nice moves if the stock can regain some of its recently lost ground over the course of the next few weeks.


Pandora Media, Inc. P – Options

Without a heck of a lot happening on the stocks front, being the dog days of summer, we see better chances for good opportunities with options at the moment. Pandora is another idea we want to talk about this morning,

It has been doing quite well over the past several weeks, since touching a low of 6.76 midway through last month. It approached the ten dollar mark last week before peeling back slightly, but this morning in the premarket, we’re seeing trades in the $10-range so we want to be ready with an options idea on the chance that a more significant breakout could occur. We’ll be tracking the P Weekly $9.50-11 Calls.

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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Sector Heating Up Again

Cannabis Comments

We got head-faked a little bit in terms of the cannabis sector in the past year or so. Leading up to last fall, anything even remotely tied to marijuana was going through the roof, with seemingly no end in sight. Then a regime change in Washington led to the appointment of self-avowed cannabis hater Jeff Sessions to the head of the DOJ. That led to a considerable cooling of what was previously the hottest market sector.

That being said, it has been business as usual for companies operating in the space in places that have taken the step of ending prohibition. Growth is happening all around, and the investment community has taken notice. The cannabis sector is showing signs of heating up once again, so we want to return to some of the plays we’ve covered in the past and highlight a few that could stand to see some good moves in the days and weeks ahead.

Dewmar International, Inc. DEWM – We just signaled our interest in DEWM in Friday morning’s premarket report, and the stock made a solid two-session swing. From Friday’s low of .0108 to .0163 yesterday, marking a move of 51% We’ll want to continue to track its movements,particularly after this morning’s news.

DEWM announced today that it filed a provisional patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office for the treatment of lung cancer with cannabinoids, so that’s going to be another interesting storyline to follow with respect to DEWM.

Also going on our refreshed cannabis watchlist of previously tracked stocks will be PNTV, POTN, MCIG, MCOA, and TRTC.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options

We’re always looking for a good post-earnings options play and we may have one with NFLX this morning. Up 10% in premarket trading on a solid beat, we’re going to be looking for a potential dip-and-rip scenario that could lead to some hefty intraday moves. Our targets are going to be the NFLX Weekly $172.50-180 Calls.
