Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL Options & More

Delta Airlines Inc. DAL

Despite a tumultuous day for the markets yesterday, and mostly everything taking on a bearish characteristic, we’re still going to go bullish on DAL in the wake of the company’s quarterly earnings report released this morning.

Despite rising fuel costs, the company revealed that profits soared well past expectations as a result of increased demand leading to higher ticket prices.

As we always try to do when a company posts a solid beat, we’ll designate a range of options to place on watch, in this case the DAL Weekly $49.50-52 Calls. We’ll go ahead and track these into the end of the week. DAL stock was already oversold, getting hammered for weeks, so this report may be just the catalyst needed to effect an impressive reversal.



SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We had great success with the SPY earlier this week, and we want to come back to it this morning in the wake of the markets getting crushed yesterday. With the amount of uncertainty and potential volatility out there, we want to set ourselves up to have an active idea no matter which way the winds blow.

Should the SPY fall below $276, we will target the SPY Weekly $277 & $276 Puts. If it pulls above $276 we will focus on the $276 and $277 Calls, so either way, we should be able to quickly identify the proper course once trading commences. .

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Mid-Week Review

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM

Today marks the fourth consecutive morning that we’ve addressed USRM in our premarket report, granted the fact that it has gone on a multi-day run setting new highs one after the other.

During yesterday’s session, USRM traded in a range from .096 to .1793, a fantastic intraday swing of 87%  From the low of .014 we caught immediately following our report  on February 27th, the total increase we observed in just a shade over a month amounts to an incredible 1180%

The stock closed at .125, but the volume cooled down to just slightly more than the 30-day average. We’ll remain interested in tracking USRM as long as it can continue to build higher base levels of support.


Sunshine Heart, Inc. SSH

We tagged SSH in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist, after identifying it as a possible bottom-bouncer, and ended up providing a pretty good opportunity for a quick intraday gain which could be just the start.

The stock traded in a range from 1.67 to 2.38 for a 43% pop, and perhaps more importantly, closed with strength at 2.31 having traded more than four times the monthly average volume on the day.

That performance will have us on the lookout for a possible continuation of momentum and give SSH a chance to formulate a multi-day run.


Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

We also want to give a quick update on the performances of a set of DLTR options we alerted a week ago today. The DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls have provided the following gain opportunities since then:

$78 Calls -  .51-1.18  (+131%)
$79 Calls – .48-.90 (+88%)
$80 Calls – .30-.61 (+103%)

The $78.50′s and the $79.50′s, also included in our highlighted range, also made commensurate gains to what’s listed above.
