Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Plays

DSW, Inc. DSW – Recap

Yesterday morning, we decided to highlight the attractive chart setup on DSW with the stock  trading at its lowest PPS since May. Despite another tumultuous day for the markets at large, DSW made an early dip-and-rip that savvy traders could have taken advantage of.

We designated the DSW 12/21 $22.50 & $25 Calls and were met with instant success. Both of those contracts produced significant gain opportunities in the first half of the session. The $22.50′s ran from a low of 2.05 and reached as high as 3.50 for a gain of 71% The $25′s fared even better, posting a multi-bag pop from .65-1.50, a 131% move.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: YGYI Review & More

Youngevity International Inc. YGYI – Recap

Last Thursday morning, we included a tag of YGYI, and today we wanted to swing back around and update readers on the stock’s performance.

YGYI ended up producing a significant dip-and-rip opportunity, coming down to an even 6.00 low before taking off and hitting a high of 10.95 yesterday, in one of its biggest single-session moves of all time. It worked out to an 83% upswing. and put YGYI in blue skies, not to mention grabbing it the top gainer spot on the whole of the NASDAQ.



eBay, Inc.  EBAY – Update

We also want to circle around for the extended term options plays we selected for observation, also in last Thursday’s report. Those were the EBAY 11/23 $33-35 Calls, and they’ve gotten off to a good start for us so far. In the four sessions since we highlighted these plays, all three have produce gains of a significant nature:

$33 Puts – Range: 1.22-2.45 – Max Gain: 101%
$34 Puts – Range: .82-1.75 - Max Gain: 113%
$35 Puts – Range: .60-.86 - Max Gain: 43%

With tons of time remaining until expiration, we’ll be eager to continue tracking these ideas for further moves.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays & More


Big Board Bottom Plays

Ra Pharmaceuticals, Inc. RARX – The first of a pair of NASDAQ-listed stocks with nice chart setups, RARX has actually been building a solid recovery trend off of its bottom since last week. A couple of Form-4 filings around the same time show two huge $15M blocks purchase by two separate insiders at the stock’s lows.

Meanwhile, there’s still a fair bit of ground to recover from what it has lost in the past ten weeks or so. RARX flirted with its 50DMA yesterday, so we’ll be looking for a break past that point, with indicators on the chart suggesting a fair chance of that happening.


___________

Liberty Tax, Inc. TAX – We’ve also noted the recent bludgeoning of TAX, which has been in a general downtrend for the better part of five months. In this case, we haven’t reached bottom-bouncer status yet, but more of a bottom-watch. At present, the stock is now heavily oversold, on the heels of the dismissal of its CEO.

With tax season upon us, this is the time of year that we’d expect companies such as TAX to do their highest volume of business, so now seems as good a time as any to track this play for a bottom-bounce.



Advance Auto Parts, Inc. AAP

The last time we talked about AAP was a few months back, and we managed to find some nice gain opportunities within the AAP options chain following the company’s strong quarterly report.

AAP reported quarterly earnings once again this morning, and we thought we’d take another crack at it, by signaling the AAP 03/16 $105-115 Calls for observation.
