Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Plays

MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. MCFT – Fresh Idea
-
We’ve picked up on a very interesting chart shape in Mastercraft this morning. The stock was well on its way to a solid recovery after bouncing off of its bottom at the end of last month. Despite the company’s earnings beat yesterday, the stock saw a gap-down followed by another bottom bounce.

We are interested in tracking the MCFT 10/18 $15-17.50 Calls in the weeks ahead, which will work out quite nicely if the stock manages another rebound similar to the one it exhibited in recent weeks.


Overstock.com Inc OSTK – Recap

The last time we tagged OSTK was a couple of weeks ago, on the morning of August 27th. We had scored some solid opportunities with short-term options in its chain the week before, but that report was a simple tag on the stock itself.

Subsequent to that highlight of OSTK, the stock saw a low of 14.72. That was followed by seven consecutive bull sessions by the stock, including yesterday’s which sent OSTK to a new high 27.38. That works out to an upswing of 86% in the month of September alone.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Explodes

SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY – Options Update

We have got a very brief update for today’s newsletter concerning our fresh options trading idea from yesterday morning in the SPY Chain. We cautioned readers that after Friday’s market sell-off, we looked to be in line for a  ’dead-cat bounce’ for stocks, and that is exactly what occurred.

Our idea was to track the SPY Weekly $287-288.50 Calls as the markets reversed, and not only did we get the rebound we were after, but the gains persisted throughout the entirety of the session.

That made for some truly spectacular profit possibilities, especially the $288 Calls, which produced an epic intraday upswing: 

SPY Weekly $287-288.50 Calls
$287 Calls – Range: .17-1.35 – Max Gain: 694%
$287.50 Calls – Range: .05-.91 – Max Gain: 1720%
$288 Calls – Range: .01-.43 – Max Gain: 4200%
$288.50 Calls – Range: .01-.07 – Max Gain: 600%

Updated Idea: 
We would like to update this SPY idea to stay close to the action, and will be tracking the
SPY 08/28 $288.50-290.50 Calls through today and into tomorrow.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Plenty of Options

Dicks Sporting Goods, Inc. DKS – Options Recap

We kept the options train rolling yesterday morning, with a fresh quick-strike idea for the DKS chain. Our targets of interest were the DKS Weekly $34.50-36 Calls and we got some very respectable moves out of each of those four sets of contracts.

The company posted solid quarterly figures, even as the sports superstores continued to curtail hunting/gun departments in more than 120 of its stores. That allowed for 3 out of the four contracts to post multi-bag gains, with the fourth not far behind.

Here are your total possible intraday profits which could have been realized during yesterday’s session: 

DKS Weekly $34.50-36 Calls
$107 Calls – Range: .65-1.15 – Max Gain: 77%
$108 Calls – Range: .43-.94 – Max Gain: 119%
$109 Calls – Range: .28-.95 – Max Gain: 239%
$110 Calls – Range: .20-.45 – Max Gain: 125%

Pier 1 Imports, Inc. PIR – Bottom Bouncer

We are catching PIR as it has just begun to come up off of its recently registered annual lows. We want to radar the stock here as it builds some momentum.

From current pricing, it would not be crazy to think that this retail stock may be capable of doubling as we approach retail season.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big-Time Options Wins

Three Ideas, Three Successes 

We didn’t let the DOW’s biggest drop of the year on Wednesday discourage us from producing three new options ideas for our readers yesterday morning. The three sets of contracts we issued alerts on were the SPY Weekly $284.50-286 Calls, the WMT Weekly $111-114 Calls, and the BABA Weekly $165-170 Calls. 

This morning, we are happy to close out the week by relaying to you, the total trading ranges and possible percentage gains that were there for the taking with all three of our ideas. We’re going to lay them out a bit differently than usual today, but the gains remain the same!

SPY Weekly $284.50-286 Calls
$284.50: 1.00-2.08 (+108%) | $285: .81-1.77 (+119%)
$285.50: .67-1.46 (+118%) | $286: .50-1.22 (+144%)

WMT Weekly $111-114 Calls
$111:
 .55-2.20 (+300%) | $112: .22-1.38 (+572%)
$113: .10-.76 (+660%) | $114: 05-.35 (+600%)

BABA Weekly $165-170 Calls.
$165:
1.50-3.50 (+133%) | $167.50: .55-1.76 (+220%)
$170: .18-.70 (+289%)

Fresh Options Idea: 
We’ll also leave this off for the week with one final idea, the OSTK $18.50-19.50 Calls.



PCT Ltd. PCTL

Earlier in the week when we provided another update on PCTL we mentioned that subsequent to our previous alert, the stock ran from .0085 to a new high of .0228. We also pointed out a patch of resistance around the .029 area, stating that we “wouldn’t be surprised to see PCTL test in upcoming sessions”.

Just a couple of sessions later, yesterday, PCTL did indeed test and break that resistance, setting a new high of .0432. That brings our total observed gain on this stock since August 5th to a whopping 507%



Sintx Technologies, Inc. SINT – Recap

Lastly, we had a runner on yesterday’s extended watchlist was well, as SINT had quite an interesting session. The stock saw an early low of 2.355 before running up to 4.32, for an intraday move of 83%

SINT then lost all of that ground and came down to close at 2.19. What makes that’s interesting is the volatility we’re seeing in the stock, and with SINT now back at a bottom, we could be headed for more intraday opportunities with this play, so we’ll keep it on the radar for now.


Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Wins Keep Coming

Continued Options Success
-
Yesterday we mentioned that we were in the heart of a major flood of earnings reports. We recapped the 4-pack of ideas we gave out on Monday, and formulated new ideas for four more plays. Once again and for the second day in a row, ALL FOUR of our ideas bore major fruit in a single session.

For any newcomers that don’t understand why we go back to quick-strike options trading again and again, this is the reason. There’s no other way to make such large potential gains, so reliably, over such a short period. Even the OTC Markets cannot provide the same near-term volatility.

These were the intraday gains made possible by yesterday’s fresh ideas:

PG Weekly $118-121 Calls 
$118 Calls – Range: 1.75-3.80 – Max Gain: 117%
$119 Calls – Range: 1.45-3.00 – Max Gain: 107%
$120 Calls – Range: .60-2.18  – Max Gain: 263%
$121 Calls – Range: .42-1.50  – Max Gain: 257%

RL Weekly $110-113 Calls 
$110 Calls – Range: .80-1.95 – Max Gain: 144%
$111 Calls – Range: .45-1.71 – Max Gain: 280%
$112 Calls – Range: .40-1.05  – Max Gain: 163%
