Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup

We had good fortune with our fresh options call yesterday, so today we’re going to be recapping the total possible gains on those plays, as well as unearthing a couple of fresh ideas to add to the mix as we close out this trading week.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Recap - Our inkling on DAL yesterday morning was to go bearish after a disappointing earnings call for the airline, with the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts. We were not disappointed with our decision to do so, as those DAL puts went on to log the following double and multi-bag intraday moves for us before lunch hour was over:

$55.50 Puts – Range: .76-1.60 – Max Gain: 110%
$55 Puts – Range: .48-1.05 – Max Gain: 119%
$54.50 Puts – Range: .25-.65 – Max Gain: 160%
$54 Puts – Range: .13-.36 – Max Gain: 177%
$53.50 Calls – Range: .03-.17 – Max Gain: 466%
______

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD

Speaking of bearish options ideas, we want to enter another fresh set into the log this morning in AMD. This stock trades very cyclically, and from a technical perspective, looks as if it could continue to lose ground after a reversal this week. We’re going to place the AMD 07/21 $14-13 Puts on watch into next week in the event that our impression of this play is correct.
______

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. BJRI

Lastly on the options front, we are going to signal a range of extended-term calls on BJRI, which has a pretty attractive bottom setup on the chart at the moment. To take advantage of a potential sustained rebound, we’re going to be monitoring the BJRI 08/18 $35 & 40 Calls.
_____

Bonus Idea: NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls


Diana Containerships. Inc. DCIX

DCIX went into a full-on nose dive recently after it was announced that the company would be taking out roughly an $85M loan to settle a monster pile of debt, and the investment community did not take the news well.

The stock has subsequently fallen to new all-time lows, and that’s where we come in. We’re always looking for stocks like this to put on bottom-watch. Being egregiously oversold, DCIX may yet have a bit further to fall, but we’ll want to be ready for a reversal at any time. The resulting bounce-back could be considerable.

ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (SVXY) – Recap

We had some positive jobs numbers which posted on Friday, and to go along with the direction of the market activity we were observing, we highlighted a range of weekly options contracts in the SVXY ETF.

Our targets were the SVXY Weekly $152-154 Calls and we did see some pretty good movement from plays in that range, which made appreciable moves on the day. Those total possible gains were as follows:

$152 Calls – Range: 2.34-3.91 – Max Gain: 67%
$153 Calls – Range: 1.86-3.54 – Max Gain: 90%
$153.50 Calls – Range: 1.61-2.28 – Max Gain: 42%
$154 Calls – Range:1.15-2.71 – Max Gain: 136%


ShiftPixy, Inc. PIXY

The Friday before last, we signaled newly-IPO’d PIXY for observation on its first trading day ever, and it also performed admirably during last week’s short trading week.

After starting at a price of 6.30 on Friday (06/30), PIXY began to run, and this past Friday it hit a high of 10.50. That’s a solid 66% upswing, which is quite impressive for a first week of trading.

This morning, we’ve seen our observed range on PIXY increase even further to 78% with the stock managing a premarket high of 11.20.

We’ll be anxious to pick up where we left off and continue to track this new stock as we head into a new trading week. Each new high it sets is a new all-time high, so there’s no telling where this ride will let off. As we mentioned last week, we’ll just continue to monitor the stock, looking for higher base levels of support to be established as we go forward.


Inpixion INPX

We’re always looking for a good bottom play, and we have one with some potential in INPX, which tumbled last week after the company announced a hefty $6M public offering.

The offering was priced at 1.05/share and the stock is currently trading in the high-.60′s. We feel a return to at least the offering price would not be implausible.

Stocks coming off of recently-established 52-week lows have historically been good to us, so we want to place INPX on watch for a potential recovery.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PIXY Review & More

ShiftPixy, Inc. PIXY

As we were mentioning on Monday morning, we included PIXY in Friday’s report on its first ever trading day. Generally speaking we don’t tend to cast our lot in with brand new IPO’s, but a trusted source in our network gave us a heads-up on PIXY, and didn’t let us down.

We of course passed it along to our readers immediately in our premarket report on Friday, and the stock, after two trading days has made some really nice progress.

From the initial opening price of 6.30 we observed in PIXY, it went on to hit a high of 9.70 to kick off the short trading week on Monday. That marks a two-day swing of 54% for this newly-trading juggernaut. We’ll continue to be on the lookout for PIXY to keep recording higher base levels of support.


Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. OPXA

An honorable mention from Monday’s report is OPXA, especially considering that sessions just prior to a holiday break are typically low-key affairs.

The stock put up a solid intraday performance, running 35% from a low of a dollar up to 1.35, and pulling back into the close at 1.15. However, premarket activity this morning has seen the stock trade back to just below Monday’s high. This is one we’ll want to keep on our radar for the time being.


Aphria, Inc. APHQF

We’ve been familiar with APHQF for quite a time, but today will be the first occasion we’ve actually mentioned it in our reports.

Today, we wanted to point out that the company released two PR’s yesterday, the more significant of which was the announcement of a 1-year cannabis supply deal with a licensed Canadian medical provider which will bring upwards of $5M in revenue beginning midway through next year. We’ll provide links to both PR’s so you can check them out for yourself.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HUGE Day on Friday & More

Recapping Our HUGE Day on Friday

We had winners cropping up all across the board on Friday, with our options idea, as well as a couple stocks from our watchlist all having really solid sessions to close out the week, the month, and the 2nd Quarter.

Nike, inc. NKE – We signaled our interest in a range of Nike calls, and were not disappointed in the results. Our targets were the 07/07 $55.50-57 Calls and they all posted considerable gains on the day.

$55.50 Calls – Range: 1.89-4.01 – Max Gain: 112%
$56 Calls – Range: .98-3.33 – Max Gain: 240%
$56.50 Calls – Range: .77-2.95 – Max Gain: 283%
$57 Calls – Range: .51-2.52 – Max Gain: 394%

NKE wasn’t the first set of options ideas we crushed last week. We also tagged contracts in the DRI and CBI chains that subsequently went on multi-bag runs. As always, we strive to deliver a varied range of ideas for traders, and options are a huge part of that.
____

Digital Power Corp. DPW - After tagging it in our watchlist in Friday’s premarket report, DPW had a very respectable intraday swing right out the gate that morning. The stock ran from a low of .65 and reached as high as 1.05, which represents a 62% pop.

The stock couldn’t sustain more than half of that gain into the close, however it is trading up slightly in the premarket today. We’ll want to continue to monitor this play, watching for the building of higher base levels of support over the course of this short and divided holiday week.
_____

ShiftPixy, Inc. PIXY – Speaking of solid runners from Friday’s report that are showing signs of bullish premarket activity today, we’ve also got PIXY, a stock that IPO’d on Friday. A close contact in our vast network of traders gave us the heads up on the commencement of trading in PIXY, and we took the opportunity to pass it along to our readers by including it in our watchlist.

We weren’t sorry that we did, as its first day of trading was very positive. From its opening price of 6.30, PIXY traded up to 7.74, for a respectable intraday rise of 23%, nearly all of which it held into the close. This morning, the stock is gapping up in the premarket, having already hit a new high of 8.48 and extended our observed range to 35%

We’re quite anxious to see how this new stock will progress from here, even if the timing of tomorrow’s holiday isn’t ideal. If PIXY continues to be a huge hit with the investment community, just remember, you heard it here first!


The Players Network PNTV

Given the fact that it streaked to new all time highs to close out the week on Friday, we want to swing back around to pat ourselves on the back heartily for PNTV.

We originally brought this stock to our readers back in October of last year, after which time the stock was trading for as little as .012. Flash forward to Friday of last week, and the stock has rocketed all the way to .127 marking an incredible increase of 958%

However, even if you’re newer to our reports and only caught our most recent alert on PNTV on June 13th, you still had the opportunity for profits of up to 34% as the range in that time span ran from .0951 to the new high of.127. With the stock firmly blue sky territory, there’s no telling where this ride will end up!

Additionally, Nevada’s recreational marijuana sales kicked off over the weekend, so that ramps up the intrigue with this play, considering the fact that the company was recently grated two licenses to supply recreational consumers in that state.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPEX, Options Recaps & More

Spherix Corp. SPEX

After initially signaling our interest in SPEX on June 20th, we’ve seen quite a run out of the stock as its gone from a low of .9505, and streaked to new highs this week.

SPEX gained some good ground on Wednesday, and yesterday morning we urged readers to look out for a momentum continuation- that’s precisely what came to pass. From daily low of 2.83 the stock streaked to 4.75. That went down as an intraday push of 68% and a total increase since we’ve been tracking this play amounting to a whopping 400% in barely a week’s time.

Volume remained strong, with SPEX trading more than 40X the monthly average volume on the day. We’ll want to see it continue to build higher base levels of support and hopefully continue to push the upper envelope.


CHF Solutions, Inc. CHFS

Also tagged in yesterday’s premarket report was CHFS, and it too made a pretty good move on the day. Volume was just dribbling in over the course of the morning, but shortly after lunch hour, the stock sprung into action.

From a low of .70 it reached as high as 1.08, which represents a 54% intraday pop. Our observed increase has been extended this morning as well, with premarket trading carrying CHFS even higher. Given the fact that this move was catalyzed by an FDA approval notice, we wouldn’t be surprised at all to see this blossom into a multi-day runner.


Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. CBI – Options Update

On Wednesday morning, we highlight a range of contracts in the CBI chain that we were interested in tracking, the CBI Weekly $20-22 Calls. As happens more often than not when we set our sights on an options play, every single contract has been good for sizable gains since our alert.

$20 Calls – Range: .75-1.90 – Max Gain: 153%
$20.50 Calls – Range: .38-1.30 – Max Gain: 242%
$21 Calls – Range: .25-1.22 – Max Gain: 388%
$21.50 Calls – Range: .20-.80 – Max Gain: 300%
$22 Calls – Range: .11-.55 – Max Gain: 400%
