We’re coming back around to mention AAPL for the third consecutive time today, with the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls we selected on Wednesday morning continuing to pile on bigtime gains.

Practically every options idea we’ve looked at in this incredible bull market has been working out in our favor, and this old favorite has been no different. Here are the updated figures for the total possible gains which could have been attained as a result of our report on Wednesday:

$195 Calls – Range: 3.20-13.25 – Max Gain: 314%

More Options Success

Our premarket report yesterday also contained two fresh sets of options ideas for Tesla, inc. TSLA with the Weekly $320-330 Calls, as well as the Wayfair Inc. W Weekly $110-115 Calls.  Both ideas produced fantastic chances for huge single session multi-bag profits:

TSLA Weekly $320-330 Calls,

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TJX Review & More


Petroleo Brasiliero SA (Petrobras) PBR

As we kick off a fresh trading week, we’re drawn to a familiar stock from the past in PBR. Our relationship in following and making successful calls with this play stretches back for years,

Recently, the stock had been falling on the heels of a solid run last month, and that decline was kicked into a higher gear last week as the company’s CEO resigned amid questions about the Brazilian economy. The turmoil has brought PBR to its lowest levels and most oversold point since December, as you can see on the chart below.

You can also see that those conditions led to a month-long run of considerable proportions, so we’re going to want to signal some longer-term options in case the pattern were to repeat itself. We’ll place the PBR 06/29 $11-12 Calls on watch in the days and weeks ahead.



The TJX Companies, Inc. TJX – Recap

We presented some longer term options ideas in our report from May 22nd as well, and wanted to update our readers on the fantastic gains that have been made possible by the stock’s continuous bull run since that time.

Our targets were the TJX 06/15 $85-90 Calls, and the excellent moves made by those contracts are as follows:

$85 Calls – Range: 2.14-6.30 – Max Gain: 194%
$87.50 Calls – Range: .90-3.80 – Max Gain: 322%
$90 Calls – Range: .35-2.00 – Max Gain: 471%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WMT Calls & More

Walmart, Inc. WMT

After a period of a couple of trading sessions where WMT has taken considerable abuse on the chart. After appearing to be gearing up to make an impressive run, the stock gapped down considerably on Tuesday and the backslide persisted through yesterday.

This major selloff has brought the stock down to its lowest PPS since November, and had us thinking about a range of calls to slate for observation in the days and weeks ahead. We’re going to signal the WMT 03/16 $90-93 Calls, which should be in line for some solid activity if Walmart mounts the recovery that, at this point, looks very possible.


Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. HTZ

We would like to put HTZ on watch as a possible bounce play this morning. As you can see on the included chart snapshot, the stock is giving off a strong double-bottom signal, and just fell below its 200DMA yesterday.

We’re going to monitor the activity here closely, because as you can see, there is a considerable amount of room to run to the upside, and the stock has been approaching heavily oversold territory.

___________

Avis Budget Group, Inc. CAR

While we’re on the subject of car rental agencies, our eye has also been caught by Avis, whose stock just came down to an area of trendline support, and also posted a Q4 earnings beat.

We’re going to look for opportunities in the CAR 03/16 $42-44 Calls in coming sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Plays

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options Idea

On the heels of the company’s solid quarterly report including adding over eight million new subscribers, we selected the NFLX Weekly $247.50-255 Calls as as our options trading targets, even as the stock had already pressed to a new all-time high, and there were high premiums baked into the options prices.

Our bullish hunch turned out to be absolutely correct, with the stock surging out of the gate and ultimately reaching a high of 257.71. A secondary move was there

That move facilitated some very nice intraday opportunities in our designated contracts:

$247.50 Calls – Range: 4.87-8.02 – Max Gain: 65%
$250 Calls – Range: 3.66-6.40 – Max Gain: 76%
$252.50 Calls – Range: 2.68-5.03 – Max Gain: 88%
$255 Calls - Range: 1.90-3.80 – Max Gain: 100%


Fresh Options Ideas

Continuing along the theme of using big name earnings beats as leverage to make quick-strike options trades, we’ve got a a fresh pair this morning. Ford and GE are both coming off of being oversold, compounding the chance for solid runs off of their bottoms.

We’re going to radar some contracts in each chain to try to take advantage of the situation:

Ford Motor Co. F – Feb 2nd $12 & 12.50 Calls

General Electric Co. GE – Weekly $17-18 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GLYC Breaks Out & More

GlycoMimetics, Inc. GLYC

The star of the show from yesterday’s premarket report was definitely GLYC, which we tagged in the extended watchlist after noticing the increasing accumulation and uptrend forming in recent sessions.

That trend was kicked into high gear with more than fifty-six times the three-month average volume pouring into the stock as GLYC traded up from a low of 7.21 and reached 11.58 for an intraday move of  61% The overall range we’ve seen here has been extended this morning in the premarket as well with the stock hitting a high of 12.05; that boosts our observed range to 67%

With GLYC shooting up so rapidly, we’ll want to be on the lookout for a potential dip-and-rip scenario, which we see quite a bit in these sort of situations.


Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR

It’s been awhile since we formulated an options idea for one of our old favorite targets in PBR, most recently being back in April. We often come back to the PBR well because it provides a lot of opportunities, and we’ve spotted what could be the next opportunity today.

Brazilian markets got crushed yesterday amid yet another government corruption scandal, causing a massive loss in share value for PBR in the blink of an eye. Today, it’s already snapping back and starting to recover in the premarket, so we want to formulate some options ideas to turn to in the event that the trend persists.

For quick-hit daytrading possibilities, we’ll have the PBR Weekly $8.50 and $9 Calls*, and for a longer-term idea we’ll have the PBR 06/30 $9.50 and $10 Calls on watch.

*Never attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are a highly experienced trader- it’s an exceedingly risky proposition.
