Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Week for Options

Morgan Stanley MS – Recap

Earlier in the week we highlighted a pair of options calls in the Morgan Stanley chain following the company’s Q3 earnings report on Tuesday, in which it reported a solid beat of Wall Street expectations on profits.

As a result, the MS Weekly $43.50 & $44 Calls that we signaled in our report produced some very nice chances for traders to lock in multi-bag profits.

The $43.50 Calls, from their low of 1.32 reached 4.20, for an intraweek gain of 218% The $44 Calls low came in at .85, and it went on to log a high of 3.65. That worked out to an overall increase of 329%


Fresh Options Ideas

Paypal, Inc. PYPL - The first of our earnings related options ideas to close out the week is going to be Paypal, whose stock saw early gains on the heels of the company’s report which entailed a big boost from the company’s Venmo offshoot. Revenue streams have been growing as Paypal has launched several initiatives within the platform. We are going to be looking at the PYPL Weekly $81-83 Calls* as we close out the trading week.

The Procter & Gamble Co. PG – We’re also looking at PG, which reported on its earnings this morning, and posted it’s biggest growth in sales for the last half a decade. Our idea for this particular play will be the PG Weekly $82-84.50 Calls*

*Please do not attempt to trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you are an advanced level trader with disposable funds. It’s an extreme risk/reward proposition!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ERBB Recap, Options & More

American Green, Inc. ERBB

In lieu of a typical extended watchlist yesterday morning, we included a series of cannabis related plays. From that list came the familiar face of ERBB, which had itself a solid session which included a strong close.

On more than three times its monthly average volume, the stock traded in a range from .00289 to a high of .0045 (+56%) before closing just a couple of ticks below at .0043. That’s the highest PPS since June of 2015, yet another indication that a second green rush is currently in force.


Procter and Gamble Co. PG – Options Recap

We also wanted to give a quick rehash of the moves made by the options we signaled for observation in yesterday’s report, the PG Weekly $85.50-88 Calls.

We mentioned we’d be on the lookout for a gap-and-go to start the session, and that’s exactly what took place. Despite tapering off toward the end of the day, some nice gains were there for the taking in the morning.

$85.50 Calls – Range: 1.70-2.43 – Max Gain: 43%
$86 Calls – Range: 1.36-2.04 – Max Gain: 50%

Lockheed Martin Corp. LMT – Options Idea

We’re going to formulate an options idea for major defense contractor Lockheed Martin today, which posted a healthy beat on earnings yesterday, causing a major spike on the chart that sent it up well past its 50DMA.

We’re going to be keen on the LMT 12/02 $255-260 Calls providing that the stock maintains support above this morning’s premarket high of 247.40 on any forthcoming pullbacks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IFAN, NEWC Updates & More

IFAN Financial, Inc. IFAN

We had multiple runners come out of yesterday morning’s premarket report, but the star of the show was was without a doubt IFAN. This was a case of looking in the right place at the right time. The stock had posted a marginal increase the session prior, but yesterday’s run was a cut above.

We witnessed as it traded in a fantastic range from .0031, cracking through the penny barrier and reaching a high of .0118. That worked out to an intraday rip of 281% which occurred on nearly thrice the monthly average trading volume.

In instances such as these, we always keep the stock on our radar in the event that the excellent momentum it’s built up washes over into another session.


New Columbia Resources, Inc. NEWC

Prior to yesterday morning’s mention, we had signaled NEWC for observation most recently a week ago today, and the ramp-up we’ve seen between then and yesterday’s solid session has been pretty impressive.

After witnessing a low of .01 subsequent to last week’s report, the stock has really taken off this week, yesterday trading up from .0231 to a new high of .0449 (+94%), which from a penny, marks an upswing of 349% in just a few sessions.


Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK 

Speaking of new highs, we’ve been tracking AGTK heavily of late, and it too set a new high mark for us in yesterday’s session, despite already being up so high. As we were mentioning yesterday morning, we caught this play on September 14th, at a low of .003, and the stock never looked back.

Yesterday’s decent move carried it from .0285-.036, a 26% intraday push, which is incredibly modest compared to the overall run we’ve been watching. Yesterday’s new peak registered as an increase of 1100% on the dot over our observed low.


Plandai Biotechnology, Inc. PLPL

We brought back a familiar play in PLPL last Thursday, and reminded readers to continue paying attention in yesterday’s premarket report. The stock has responded with with a nice performance in that span.

Yesterday’s session brought a healthy 56% move up from .04 to a new high of .0624, which from the three-cent low we witnessed at the end of last week, marks a swing of 108%


The Procter and Gamble Co. PG – Fresh Options Idea

As a result of the confluence of both an attractive technical setup on the chart where it recently came down to 4-month lows, in addition to a well-received quarterly earnings report this morning, we want to tag some PG options for potential daytrades and or intraweek swing trades. We had multiple landmark plays that fit the same description last week, and came away with chances for multibag gains in almost every instance.

To attempt to do the same thing this week, we’re going to look to the PG Weekly $85.50-88 Calls, which should see some nice activity if the action unfolds the way it appears it might. We’ll be looking for a gap-and-go setup to facilitate that.


Cannabis Watchlist:

The “Green Rush” continues… Aside from the three above-mentioned cannabis plays we want to continue to keep the top traded pot stocks on watch for further gains. The momentum in the sector as a whole, as we’ve cautioned readers, has continued in a big way.

TRTC, HEMP, OWCP, PHOT, MCOA, ERBB are among some of the headliners in that regard, but by no means the only marijuana related stocks that are set to explode leading up to and following election day, whereupon recreational consumption will most likely become legal in the state of California.
