Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DE Options Recap & More

Urban Outfitters, Inc. URBN – Options Rehash

We have been hitting one home run after another with our options ideas recently, and kept the trend going on Wednesday before the holiday break. We offered up the Deere & Co. DE Weekly $143-146 Calls as a fresh idea for the day in our premarket report, and it turned out to be another good one.

All but one of the contracts contained within our highlighted range recorded single-session gains exceeding two hundred percent!

DE Weekly $143-146 Calls
$143 Calls –
Range:  .82-2.50 – Max Gain: 205%
$144 Calls – Range:  .50-1.53 – Max Gain: 206%
$145 Calls – Range:  .30-1.00 – Max Gain: 233%
$146 Calls – Range: .19-.53 – Max Gain: 220%

From the looks of things this morning , we could actually end up seeing these ranges extended even further. Just be aware that the normal extreme risk associated with trading weekly options on a Friday is heightened even more in a half-day scenario like today.


General Electric Co. GE – More Options Ideas

We’ve been watching GE try to find a bottom for more than a month now, and finally, we’ve got a coupls solid signals that this could be the moment we were waiting for. Not only did the stock make a moderate rebound off of its newly-registered 52-week lows, but we’ve also noticed an enormous tranche of insider buying.

An order for 3M shares was executed earlier this week in the amount of roughly $53M. You don’t generally tend to see that kind of money sunk into a stock by someone in-the-know, unless they’re fairly certain that the current support will hold.

As a result, we are going to signal a range of options ideas here as well for a longer-term recovery play, with the targets being the GE 01/19 $18-19 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IDXG Recap & More

Interpace Diagnostics Group, Inc. IDXG

We last talked about IDXG on the 16th of last month. (Please excuse us for being currently unable to provide the link to that report like we normally would, as our primary servers are located in Houston, and our service provider is still recovering in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.) Subsequent to that mention, we observed a low of .72 in IDXG, and the run we’ve seen has been pretty impressive.

Yesterday the stock hit 1.73, which represents a 140% increase, and the stock closed with strength just below its high of day, so we’ll be interested to see if there will be further gains in store. The key for IDXG will be to maintain above the NASDAQ minimum bid requirement of a dollar per share on any pullbacks.


Insmed, Inc. INSM – Options Update

We highlighted our interest in a set of options for INSM in yesterday’s report to try to take advantage of the flux in activity caused by the company’s positive Phase III results on its rare lung disease treatment study.

We saw the beginnings of what could be a good idea that we’ll want to continue tracking in the INSM 09/15 $27-30 Calls. The $27′s we’re the only ones that were pushed into the money, and they did manage an intraday run from a low of .95 to 1.60 for a 68% swing on the day. We’ll continue to keep an eye on these contracts if INSM can manage to record higher lows over the next few sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

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: GYST Video, Other Updates

The Graystone Company GYST

Our first order of business this morning is to provide an update on GYST, which was the subject of our special report yesterday. If you did not catch our report, you can do so by hitting the following link >>GYST REPORT

To illustrate GYST’s performance during yesterday’s session, what better way to go over it than a video chart from our very own Stock Sumo! Click through to the video below, and also receive a quick lesson in understanding Level 2 quotes, which is vital for any beginning trader to take the next step!

>>GYST Video

The dip-and-rip we saw in GYST from .007 to .012 represented an intraday upswing of 71%, so, a very good first day of observation. As Stock Sumo was mentioning, we want to see GYST hold support at or above the channel between .0064-.007 on any pullbacks, and will look for an eventual break of resistance at .0125.


OTHER UPDATES:

Viva Entertainment Group, Inc. OTTV -We tagged OTTV in  Friday’s extended watchlist and we wanted to circle back this morning to mention the solid activity that followed from this stock over subsequent sessions.

On Friday, we observed a low of .0004 and witnessed a pretty nice 75% rip to .0007. As of yesterday, OTTV had extended its high to .001, and boosted our three-session observed upswing on the stock to a nice, round 150%
_____

Pilgrim Petroleum Corp. PGPM – For another quick update, we’ve witnessed a pretty good two-day swing in PGPM after alerting it in Tuesday’s premarket report, and observing a low of .011. Yesterday, the stock hit .0183, which was good for a respectable overall move of 66%


Dollar General Corp. DG

We want to leave off this morning with an earnings-related options idea. We’ve had a ton of success this earnings season, and will try to keep that going with Dollar General.

Not only did the company reveal a beat on sales and profits for the quarter, but the current chart setup was already primed for a bullish move. We’ll be putting the DG Weekly $75-78 Calls on watch for potential day and/or swing trades.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BBRY Recap & More

Cumulus Media, Inc. CMLS

We’re looking at CMLS as a possible momentum play. The stock has been building up quite a head of steam over the past few sessions, trading an inordinately high amount of volume yesterday.

Since hitting its lows toward the end of last month the stock has been in a general uptrend. Every time it has receded, it has rebounded back to set new highs. We’ll place CMLS on watch to see if it can maintain the powerful trend it has established.

CMLS is gapping up in the premarket this morning. On any pullbacks, we’ll want to see CMLS maintain support at a minimum of .50 in order to maintain our immediate interest.



BlackBerry Ltd. BBRY

Normally, when we alert on a big board play without including some type of options idea, as we did with BBRY back on March 31st (and April 12th), it’s because we feel the stock itself is generally undervalued. Where BlackBerry is concerned, we have thus far turned out to be right on the money. We saw a low of 7.47 on the morning of March 31st, and BBRY hasn’t looked back since.

In its largest single session move of the year, the stock hit 11.38 yesterday. That represents an increase of 52% over our observed low, as we’ve pointed out on the chart below. .

____

FerroGlobe PLC (GSM) – Along the same lines, we highlighted GSM yesterday, a stock which is priced similarly to BBRY. It managed a slight increase after gapping up, and we’re going to continue watching this one as well.
