Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Shipping Options

Big Shipping Options Review 

Yesterday morning, we were feeling confident in a bearish session leading into the Fed meeting. Despite a last-hour rebound following the rate lowering, most of the day provided us with plenty of backsliding action that led to some very respectable single-session gains for our picks.

We had bearish ideas set up for both of the main players in the parcel shipping game, In each instance, we observed solid moves for every single one of our targeted contracts:

FDX Weekly $157.50-155 Puts
$165 Calls – Range: 
4.30-9.20 – Max Gain: 114%
$167.50 Puts – Range: 3.00-7.00 – Max Gain: 133%

UPS Weekly $120-119 Puts
$120 Puts – Range:
 .67-1.37 – Max Gain: 104%
$119 Puts – Range: .44-.89 – Max Gain: 102%


Eros International Plc. EROS

We mentioned EROS most recently on August 21st, and shortly following that alert, the stock was trading for as little as 1.20. This morning we have observed a new high of 3.42 in the premarket in the wake of an announced partnership with Microsoft.

That’s a total increase of 185% in roughly seven weeks’ time. We’ll be interested to continue monitoring the activity from this point on.

DOUGLAS, Isle of Man–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Eros Now, a South Asian entertainment OTT (over-the-top) video platform by Eros International Plc, a Global Indian Entertainment Company, the ultimate one-stop destination for the internet generation to consume captivating content, today announced a collaboration with Microsoft to build a next generation online video platform on Microsoft Azure targeted at its consumers across the globe.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bearish Options Ideas

AutoDesk Inc. ADSK 

With things looking choppy for the markets this morning, we are going to turn to a bearish idea for ADSK despite the company’s beat on Q2 earnings yesterday after market hours. The stock began to crumble under the weight of ADSK’s weak Q3 guidance. The poor outlook given, combined with the flow of market tides, could be just the thing for bearish options contracts, namely the ADSK Weekly $135-132 Puts.

There are those of the belief that ADSK stock was already valued too high leading into yesterday’s report, which is why we feel confident choosing to go short at the present time.

The Buckle, Inc. BKE – Update

We would also like to update readers on another recent idea we floated. On Friday morning, we selected the BKE 09/20 $17.50-20 Calls for a longer-term options idea, and already it has borne fruit just a few sessions later.

The $17.50 Calls have run from a low of .95 and reached 2.31, marking a gain of 143%  Meanwhile the $20′s have soared by an even higher margin, trading in a range from .20 up to .72, which works out to a 260% run.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Updates

JB Hunt Transport Services, Inc. JBHT

The most interesting options trading candidate we are seeing from the pool of un-traded upon earnings reporters is JBHT, which dropped an extremely solid quarterly in the post-market yesterday. The company beat on earnings, year-over-year revenue, and bested expectations on guidance as well.

We are going to track a pair of contracts, the JBHT Weekly $95-100 Calls to try to take advantage of the resulting activity.

American Electric Technologies, Inc. AETI

We try to keep running tabs on everything we mention in our daily reports, and in AETI we have a stock that we tagged for observation at the end of May. In the seven ensuing weeks, the stock has more than doubled.

We observed a low of .60 in AETI subsequent to our initial alert and the stock managed to register a new high of 1.45. That works out to an overall rise of 142% and was good for the #2 spot on the NASDAQ gainers list for the day. If it can break previous resistance at 1.61, it will officially be in blue sky territory.


Tautachrome, Inc. TTCM

Our OTC play from yesterday morning was indeed a runner. The stock made an intraday move from a low of .0103-.0197, which marks a 91% gain on what amounted to more than five times the monthly average daily volume.

The extreme volatility here, like the options plays we select, is what makes this attractive to us as short-term traders. We’ll continue to keep an eye on TTCM for any other possible swing trade opportunities.


Taronis Technologies, Inc. TRNX

One we’ve been watching since Monday of last week is TRNX, which was trading for as little as .1832 following our most recent update.

It trended up to and closed at a high of .35 yesterday, and so far in the premarket this morning it has reached as high as .53. That’s an incredible swing of 189% inside of a week! We’ll want to see previous resistance at the 50DMA to hold as support on any pullbacks.
