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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Huge VRX Calls, New Ideas & More

Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX

Our latest round of VRX Calls will almost certainly go down as one of our best three-day swings on any idea we’ve ever formulated. Beginning on Tuesday when we offered up the VRX Weekly $10.50-12 Calls as a target range. That day the stock traded as low as 10.57 before beginning this epic run that facilitated some truly impressive gains. VRX continued to bull its way to new highs yesterday, hitting 14.55, which in itself represents a 38% rise over Tuesday’s low.

Just like we did in yesterday’s premarket report, we’ve included the intraday moves, as well as our overall observed gains. 

$10.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.95-3.89 – Daily Gain: 118% – Total Range: .40-3.89 – 3-Day Swing: 873%
$11 Calls – Daily Range: 1.46-3.50 – Daily Gain: 140% – Total Range: .18-3.50 – 3-Day Swing: 1844%
$11.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.27-2.99 – Daily Gain: 135% – Total Range: .08-2.99 – 3-Day Swing: 3638%
$12 Calls – Daily Range: .51-2.51 – Daily Gain: 392% – Total Range: .02-2.51 – 3-Day Swing: 12450%

A hearty congratulations goes out to anyone who took advantage of one of our best ideas of the year so far!


Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. NAK

Following our alerts on the stock in March at which time we stated that we believed there was “serious upside potential” for NAK, the stock has proven our assumption to be accurate. It has lived up to that potential as well in recent week, and this morning we’re seeing the stock gapping up to new highs in the premarket today with shares changing hands for as much as 2.60.

From the 1.06 low we observed in March, that represents a roughly two-month upswing of 145%

Today’s heightened activity likely stems from the new announcement the company made via PR this morning. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alaska-based Pebble Limited Partnership, and the US Environmental Protection Agency have reached a settlement agreement with respect to the parties’ longstanding legal dispute.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement, EPA has agreed the Pebble Project can proceed into normal course permitting under the Clean Water Act and National Environmental Policy Act. (>View Full PR)



Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Ideas

SNAP took a pounding yesterday after releasing earnings that many are referring to as a disaster, but is recovering in the premarket today. We want to try to signal a range of calls to coincide with what could be a significant course-correct.

We’re looking at the SNAP Weekly $18 Calls* for quick daytrading opportunities, as well as the SNAP 6/16 $18-19 Calls for a longer-term recovery idea.

Bonus Idea: AZN $32-33.50 Weekly Calls*

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

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates on Recent Interests

MMEX Resources Corp. MMEX

Just to give a quick recap of our timeline of events with MMEX- We stated our continued interest in MMEX on Friday, after re-tagging it in Thursday’s premarket report allowed for the chance at some very nice gains. (.0081-.0169, +108%). That was only after our first alerting on the stock in the previous Friday’s report, while it was trading as low as .0046, so as of Friday morning, we had already witnessed a five-session overall swing of 267%

One might have thought the party was over at that point, in reality, it persisted in a big way. Friday’s trading activity brought an onslaught of buying pressure as volume surged and the PPS got another sizable boost. MMEX traded in an intraday range from .0163-.0289, an intraday rip of 77% That brings our total observed upswing on this play to 528% since March 22nd.


Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – Update

We’ve been tracking the PBR 04/21 $9.50 & $10 Calls since the Friday before last, which brought us gains in the 180-200% range leading into Friday’s session.

Today we just want to provide the updates figures as those contracts underwent a dip-and-rip pattern that produced the following intraday opportunities on Friday.

04/21 $9.50 Calls – Range: .36-.52 – Max Gain: 44%
04/21 $10 Calls – Range: .18-.26 – Max Gain: 44%


U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM

After inevitably cooling down off of the amazing 1180% (.014-.1793) run we witnessed between 02/27 and 03/28, USRM consolidated toward the end of last week, and on Friday make a pretty convincing reversal and rebound.

The stock traded up from a low of .0821 to .123 for a respectable intraday boost of 50% so we’ll want to hang around to see if the stock can chain together another solid session and maintain that recovery.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DLTR Recap & More

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

Yesterday turned out to be a nice bullish session for DLTR, making us glad we added it as a focus in our premarket report. No sooner than we updated our readers on the DLTR options ideas we submitted in last Wednesday‘s premarket report, did they take off to new highs once again.

The DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls had already provided us with double-bag gain chances, but yesterday’s activity pushed those figures a lot higher. The following numbers represent the maximum possible gains so far over the last six trading sessions:

$78 Calls – Range: .51-2.05 – Max Gain: 301%
$78.50 Calls – Range: .63-2.05 – Max Gain: 225%
$79 Calls – Range:  .48-1.43 – Max Gain: 198%
$79.50 Calls – Range: .35-1.40- Max Gain: 300%
$80 Calls – Range: .30-1.34 – Max Gain: 347%

We can continue to keep these contracts on our radar, with more than three weeks remaining until their expiration date.


Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – Update

Another set of 04/21 options contracts that we’ve been tracking have also fared well, tacking on new highs yesterday,

We slated the PBR 04/21 $9.50 & $10 Calls for observation a week ago today, and must now swing back around to highlight the excellent moves these plays have made in a week’s time.

04/21 $9.50 Calls – Range: .18-.51 – Max Gain: 183%
04/21 $10 Calls – Range: .09-.27 – Max Gain: 200%

As stated on the above mentioned play, these contracts have more than three weeks before expiration, so we’ll continue to keep tracking their activity in coming sessions. Yesterday the stock closed just under the 200DMA of 9.69, and we’ll remain bullish on these ideas if the stock can break past that barrier.


Sphere 3D Corp. ANY

We want to make mention of ANY this morning after noticing a set of interesting circumstances. Just a few days following the closing of a $4.5M direct offering/ private placement, the company has now announced it has been awarded a $3M contract  (>>View PR)

All of this activity on the newsreel is happening concurrently with a potential reversal and rebound on the chart. The stock has been failing to satisfy its $1.00 minimum bid requirement for the better part of nine months now, and will need to get itself back above that mark or it could face delisting after just three years on the NASDAQ.
