Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom Watch Plays

Activision Blizzard, Inc. ATVI

Despite beating on earnings in its postmarket release yesterday afternoon, ATVI reported fewer monthly active subscribers, and the stock has taken a gut punch as a result, falling to new annual lows in the mid-$50′s. The stock hasn’t seen a PPS this low since last December, and it went on to have a post-holiday run into March of this year, and yet another in the spring.

While we don’t expect an exact repeat of history, at present the stock is highly oversold, and we want to set up a longer-term recovery play to place on watch today and monitor going forward. We’ll be looking at the ATVI 01/18 $55-62.50 Calls for this purpose.


Bunge Ltd. BG

We’ve also taken notice of an interesting setup on BG, which has been recently trading at a double bottom, and whose CEO just picked up nearly a hundred million dollars worth of the stock here at these lows. He was also joined by another insider which submitted a pair of Form-4′s for the purchase of roughly $40M.

That’s an incredibly large bet on the part of the company’s leader, far out of the realm of simply trying to prop up his company’s stock. To invest that kind of money, would seem to imply a firm inside belief that BG won’t go much lower than what we’ve seen in the past week or so. We’ll place this stock on a Form-4 Bottom Watch moving forward, and monitor for the possibility of a nice rebound.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PTOP Keeps Rolling & More

Peer to Peer Network PTOP

PTOP has been the main point of focus on the stock side of things for us this week, keeping us coming back to update the fantastic gains it has made. The stock has been setting new highs by leaps and bounds. Just yesterday morning we were pointing out the 7025% gain we’d seen since our initial alert on the stock on November 8th after which time it would trade for as low as .0004, before running all the way to .0285.

Yesterday that incredible range was stretched even further, as PTOP broke out to yet another new high, trading in a daily range from .027 to .067 (+148%). It brought the stock to its highest PPS in the last five years, and our own observed six-week surge to a monumental total of 16,650%


AT&T, Inc. T Options Update

We highlighted and began tracking a range of options for AT&T back on November 9th, and wanted to circle back this morning to update the progress on those as T stock has continually trended upward ever since.

Our targets were the T 01/19 $34-36 Calls, and the ranges we’ve seen on those contracts have been rather impressive. The following figures represent the lows shortly after our first alert o the new highs achieved this week.   .

$34 Calls – Range: .91-5.30 – Max Gain: 482%
$35 Calls – Range: .53-4.30 – Max Gain: 711%
$36 Calls – Range: 37-3.30 – Max Gain: 792%

Fresh Idea:  Nike. Inc. NKE - After a post-market earnings letdown yesterday, combined with an already toppy chart, we may look for the possibility of gains in the NKE Weekly $64-62.50 Puts* to close out the week.

* Never trade weekly options on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s very risky!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Trades & More

More Winning Options Trades

We submitted a pair of daytrading ideas for the NVDA and ROKU options chains, and it’s no surprise that both ideas turned out to be winners for us. Our lack of shock stems from the fact that we have been absolutely crushing it when it comes to options. We always have solid success in this arena, but the past few weeks have been more loaded with huge gainers for us more than even we are accustomed to, and Friday continued that trend convincingly.

We had the NVIDIA Corp. – NVDA Weekly $205-212.50 Calls as well as the Roku, Inc. – ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls on watch for the day, and there wasn’t a single contract contained within either of those ranges that didn’t provide us with some really nice chances for big gains. Those were as follows:

NVDA Weekly $205-212.50 Calls
$205 Calls – Range: 7.50-13.59 – Max Gain: 81%
$207.50 Calls – Range: 5.55-11.06 – Max Gain: 99%
$210 Calls – Range: 3.65-8.60 – Max Gain: 136%
$212.50 Calls – Range: 1.90-7.22 – Max Gain: 280%

ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls
$28 Calls – Range: 2.60-8.00 – Max Gain: 207%
$29 Calls – Range: 1.90-7.22 – Max Gain: 280%
$30 Calls – Range: 1.10-6.50 – Max Gain: 491%


JB&ZJMY Holding Company, Inc. JBZY

We also want to make note of JBZY, which has a pretty good chart setup at the moment. The stock was trending up off of its 50DMA throughout last week, and is sitting at .08 currently.

With a recent run to .16 showing us what this play is capable of in just a short time, we’ll go ahead and put it on watch as we start off a new trading week. As we’ve pointed out on the snapshot below, another bullish cross looks inevitable for the MACD.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SNAP Review & More

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Idea

After a mixed bag of news yesterday that included a 12% stake being bought in SNAP by China’s Tencent Holdings, and a poor quarterly earnings report, we signaled our interest in tracking the  SNAP Weekly $15-14 Puts for quick strike trades.

It turned out to be a good idea as the stock gapped down and continued to plunge, sending our observed contracts hurtling upward.

$15 Puts – Range: 1.10-2.85 – Max Gain: 159%
$14.50 Puts – Range: .76-2.30 – Max Gain: 203%
$14 Puts – Range: .50-1.89 – Max Gain: 278%


Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX – Options Update

We began tracking the VRX Weekly $13-14 Calls on Tuesday morning, and saw some pretty nice moves out of them early on in that session.

With the help of another, even more bullish session we were able to see our observed ranges on the specified contracts extended by a considerable margin. The following table represents Tuesday’s lows to yesterday’s highs, and the two-day, multi-bag gains that were possible.

$13 Calls – Range: .82-2.28 – Max Gain: 178%
$13.50 Calls – Range: .52-1.75 – Max Gain: 237%
$14 Calls – Range: .28-1.30 – Max Gain: 364%


Fresh Options Idea: AT&T, Inc. T

We’ve had our eye on AT&T for awhile as it was recently searching out a bottom, waiting for the proper time to pounce with a potential recovery play. Over the past couple of sessions, the stock has establish a solid base of support and begun to try to come up off of those lows, which are the lowest of the year so far.

We’re going to be looking after the T 01/19 $34-36 Calls for a longer-term rebound play, in the days and weeks ahead.
