Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates

Zillow Group, Inc. Z – Update

Last Wednesday just prior to the Thanksgiving break, we submitted a range of options ideas on Zillow, which we caught at a relative bottom after noticing some hefty Form-4 submissions. Our targeted options were the Z 01/18 $30-40 Calls, and in the two-and-a-half sessions since we’ve seen excellent multi-bag gain opportunities.

Every single strike price worked out nicely, with the following moves:

$30 Calls – Range: 1.57-4.37 - Max Gain: 178%
$35 Calls – Range: .57-1.72 – Max Gain: 202%
$40 Calls – Range: .10-.50 - Max Gain: 400%


Facebook, Inc. FB – Update

Then on Friday, after the holiday we spotted a bottom play in FB, and jumped on that with another longer term set of options ideas, the FB 01/18 $135-145 Calls. We’ve had some appreciable movement in those as well, and wanted to share those figures.

$135 Calls – Range: 5.94-8.21 - Max Gain: 38%
$140 Calls – Range: 3.88-5.50 – Max Gain: 42%
$145 Calls – Range: 2.24-3.50 - Max Gain: 56%

As is the case with the aforementioned plays, it’s a good start, but with plenty of time remaining until expiration, we’ll definitely continue to track these ideas in the days and weeks ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RIOT, EGBN & More

Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

We began tracking RIOT on November 2nd at a low of 6.33, mentioning it three times over the course of the next month. The stock saw a massive run ending last Monday hitting a high of 21.76, for a hefty move of 244%

It spent the rest of the week beginning to rebound off of the pullback to the $12-range which followed that huge spike, and is presently trading back in the $16-range. We’re going to want to continue to keep an eye on this blockchain related play, as almost anything even remotely tied to the white-hot sector has a chance to see further surges at any time if the price of BTC sees more new highs. As of this morning, one Bitcoin is worth just over $11,000USD.


Verizon, Inc. VZ

It has been a very solid run for VZ since we signaled a range of contracts to observe on the morning of November 17th, the VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls.  We saw the stock trading at 44.62, and that was followed by sessions after session of new highs leading all the way through Friday, when it reached  51.55.

We wanted to provide yet another update on the total ranges of gains that were available in our options idea in the two weeks we’ve been tracking it now:

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls
$45 Calls – Range: 1.08 -6.40 – Max Gain: 493%
$46 Calls – Range: .59-5.48 – Max Gain: 829%
$47 Calls – Range: .39-4.56 – Max Gain: 1069%
$48 Calls – Range: .23-3.34 – Max Gain: 1352%



Eagle Bancorp, Inc. EGBN

We noticed an interesting set of events playing out with EGBN- the stock absolutely fell off a cliff last week, tumbling from nearly $70 on Wednesday, to the low $46-range on Friday. Apparently it was the result of a hyped up short seller report by Aurelius Value, an anonymous online firm that supports short-sellers. The company published a statement of its own calling the report “a deceptive and materially misleading piece“.

We tend to give credence to the actual company’s public statement rather than a group of shorts hiding behind a curtain somewhere. That’s why we’re going to place the EGBN 12/15 $50-60 Calls on watch in the days and weeks ahead, for what should be a forthcoming recovery in EGBN.
