Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Review & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Review

We’re now mentioning the calls we made for the Apple options chain on Tuesday for the third consecutive day, after each of our tracked contracts yet again set new highs during yesterday’s session.

To refresh your memory, we slated the AAPL Weekly $150-155 Calls for observation in Tuesday’s premarket report, and they provided solid gain opportunities ranging from 78-146% that day.

Here are the updated figures showing the lows from Tuesday, to the new highs attained yesterday.

$150 Calls – Range: 2.30-4.80 – Max Gain: 109%
$152.50 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.55 – Max Gain: 155%.
$155 Calls – Range: .28-.89 – Max Gain: 218%



Fresh Options Ideas


While we’re on roll with options calls, we might as well let it ride by selecting a couple of other ideas that are worth monitoring.

Tiffany & Co. TIF - Tiffany’s chart is showing a decent bottom setup, while some insider buying was reported this week near 4-month lows. We’re going to highlight the TIF 10/20 $92-93 Calls and keep them on our radars in the days and weeks ahead.

Blackberry Ltd. BBRY - For a more short-term idea, we’re going to signal the BBRY Weekly $9.50 & $10 Calls on the heels of Blackberry’s premarket earning beat. Prior to today, the stock has hovering around a solid level of support at roughly $9 for quite some time, but today’s release could definitely have a positive effect on the chart. The company posted a beat on profits and revenue, while software sales set company records.

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – Options Idea

If you root through the seven year newsletter history archived at our website, BlueHorseshoeStocks.com, you would find that we’ve discussed AAPL more times than most stocks, even though we haven’t mentioned it much in recent times.

In fact, AAPL’s was the first go-to options chain that we focused on when we began including options trading ideas a few years ago. This morning, we’re coming back to this old favorite with a fresh idea to coincide with the current Apple hype.

The company is rolling out the new iPhone today, among other things, and iPhone announcements have historically provided some good ammunition for options traders. Today, we’re going to slate the AAPL Weekly $160 & $162.50 Calls for observation in forthcoming sessions as AAPL’s event is expected to drive up activity not only in its own stocks, but likely other tech stocks as well.


FutureLand Corp. FUTL

On Friday morning, we included FUTL in our watchlist, and the stock has made a solid two-swing for us. From Friday’s low of .0012 the stock set a new high of .0026 to kick off the week yesterday, which works out to an overall jump of 117% Yesterday’s big push came on volume of more than three times the monthly average.

We would also include a note of caution in terms of long term interest in this stock. The company dropped the news that it had entered into a joint venture with Greenleaf Holdings  that would “deliver solar technology to the cannabis industry”. Yet here it is, two months later, and there have been no further details given. We tend to be wary of companies that don’t keep a steady line of communication to shareholders.

That being said, we have seen some really nice movement on the chart as we mentioned above, so we’ll continue to keep an eye on FUTL.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, NLNK Recaps & More

GoPro, Inc. GPRO

We took advantage of the situation with GPRO yesterday after noticing the stock light up the boards in the premarket on the heels of a guidance adjustment.

We set our sights on the GPRO Weekly $9.50 & $10 Calls and both sets of contracts ended up providing traders with a chance at notable intraday gains.

The $9.50′s ran from .13-.90 for a whopping intraday pop of 592%, while the $10′s traded in a range from .47-1.20 for chances at up to 155% profit.



Insmed, Inc. INSM – Update

We’ve also got the pleasure of updating the figures on the options idea we put out on Tuesday after INSM had yet another solid session. The updated ranges on the contracts we selected are quite impressive, including a twelve-bagger, clearly demonstrating why we devote so much energy to options trading in addition to stocks!

The gains that were up for grabs to anyone who was paying attention were as follows:

$27 Calls
– Range: .95-4.50 – Max Gain: 373%
$28 Calls – Range:  .25-3.40 – Max Gain: 1260%
$29 Calls – Range: .40-2.75 – Max Gain: 588%
$30 Calls – Range: .50-2.12 – Max Gain: 324%


NewLink Genetics Corp. NLNK

We also had some very good fortune with our call of NLNK yesterday morning, which we caught notice of on our routine morning scan after some abnormal activity cropped up in the premarket.

Despite the fact that it went into the session as a $9+ stock, we still saw a really nice intraday push en route to NLNK going on the books as the NASDAQ’s top mover. We observed as the stock ran from a low of  9.50, traded up for essentially the entire session, and hit a high of 14.48 for a hefty 52% move on the day.

NLNK closed with strength, maintaining well over half its daily advance, so we’ll definitely want to continue to monitor the situation. No matter how you slice it, a single-session gain of 50% from a nearly ten-dollar stock, is nothing short of incredible.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates, Bottom-Plays & More


Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS

We flagged AEZS on Wednesday’s morning, and saw rip its way to nearly a 90% gain. Then yesterday morning, we took note of the heavy volume and kept the stock on our radar.

It didn’t quite match the degree of the previous session’s move, but still followed it up with a solid performance, running from 2.55 to 3.29 on the day. That’s an intraday spike of 29% and a two-day upswing of 122% over our observed low of 1.48,  while volume was massive once again. We’ll be looking for AEZS to possibly continue its multi-day run, and would want to see maintain support at or above Wednesday’s closing price of 2.34 on any pullbacks, in order to remain interested.


ImmunoCellular Therapeutics, Ltd. IMUC

We want to radar IMUC as a bottom-watch play this morning. We noticed the stock had fallen to a new annual low yesterday, following the pricing of a public offering earlier this week, that is expected to be executed today.

We’re always on the lookout for battered stocks that could become rebound play candidates, and we’re always looking for charts with gaps to the upside and IMUC currently checks both of those boxes.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VNR Recap & More


Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC. VNR

We began watching VNR as it hit its annual lows back in the fall, initially tagging it in our report from October 6th. We’ve seen some pretty impressive swings since then, and have routinely included the stock in several of our reports.

Most recently was the first trading day of 2017, and we’ve since witnessed another bullish push out of VNR as it has traded in a range from .70-1.11 (+58%) over the past couple of weeks. From our overall observed low of .46 in VNR just after our first alert in October, this week’s new high represents a 141% increase.

Next we’ll be looking for the stock to make a run at a key resistance point sitting at the 200DMA of 1.17



Alkame Holdings, Inc. ALKM

We’ve been tracking ALKM since Wednesday’s premarket report, and over these couple of sessions, we have seen a decent trading range on the stock.

From Wednesday’s early low of .0014, ALKM has touched a high of .002, which works out to a swing of 43% to the upside. We’ll leave the stock on our radar, and be on the lookout for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Avinger, Inc. AVGR – Reminder

We noticed AVGR getting ready for a heavy gap-up after bouncing off of its bottom yesterday. Although it only rose a modest 17% upon the open from 2.90-3.40, we’re going to still want to track its movements heading into next week, as it may yet continue to pile up more gains.

Several indicators on the chart are still looking ripe for that possibility despite all the lost ground it recovered  with yesterday’s gap-up.


Microsoft Corp. MSFT -  Options Idea

We wanted to signal a range of options ideas we feel have potential after Microsoft beat the Street’s estimates in yesterday’s post-market earnings report.

We’re going to be tracking the MSFT Weekly $64.50-66 Calls, starting at the lower strike price, and rolling up if the stock looks like it’s going to continue to break out and push the strike price into the money. The premarket high on MSFT is 65.68, so in order to consider rolling up to $66′s, we would want to see a break past that mark.
