Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recap, Form-4′s

Campbell Soup Co. CPB

After Campbell’s beat on earnings, we formulated an options idea in yesterday’s premarket report to go along with the activity we were observing. Our targets were the CPB Weekly $38.50-40.50 Calls, and despite a down day for the markets in general, CPB produced just the right performance to allow for some really nice gains.

Every single one of the five contracts contained within our designated range produced a big opportunity for quick profits.

$38.50 Calls – Range: 1.50-2.94 – Max Gain: 96%
$39 Calls – Range: .91-2.52 - Max Gain: 177%
$39.50 Calls – Range: .83-2.05 – Max Gain: 147%
$40 Calls – Range: .55-1.80 - Max Gain: 227%
$40.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.40 – Max Gain: 250%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Watch Play & More

Aytu Bioscience, Inc. AYTU

We’re always on the lookout for a bargain, and we may have a prime bottom play opportunity in AYTU in the near future. The stock has been on the downtrend for a couple of months, and is presently very heavily oversold.

We’re going to put this play on our radar and watch carefully for a bottom-bounce which appears to be imminent. Gaining back even half of the ground its recently lost would mean more than a dounble from the current PPS.


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We’re also looking at the SPY today after a lackluster finish to last week. Market sentiment still appears to be bearish as we ready ourselves to kick off this fresh trading week.

We are going to be tracking a set of bearish options, particularly the SPY 10/08 $288.50-$287.50 Puts. Keep in mind that these expire at the end of the day, thus should be treated as weekly options on a Friday. Only expert traders with disposable income should attempt these kinds of trades.
