Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LULU Recap & More

Lululemon Athletica LULU – Recap

If you have been following our newsletters for any significant period of time, you know that we’ve been hitting home runs left and right in the options trading arena. We offered up a range of contracts in the LULU chain to watch on Friday on the heels of the company’s earnings drop, the LULU Weekly $149-152.50 Calls.

Unsurprisingly, we saw some very nice activity out of those plays to close out what had already been another successful week for options.

$150 Calls – Range: 5.00-10.75 – Max Gain: 115%

Another very notable move from the plays we were watching last week came from the SPY $290 Calls which experienced a significant dip and rip, trading as low as .06 before closing at .65, an intraday rise of 983%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More SPY Action

SPDRA S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We want to formulate a new options idea for the SPY, but first, we would like to present the final performance of the Weekly SPY Calls we signaled last Tuesday.

Those were the SPY Weekly SPY Weekly $272.50-274 Calls and the gains they experienced over the course of the short holiday week were exceedingly impressive, with percentage increases in the thousands on two out of four contracts, with the other two set not trailing far behind, with huge multi-bag gains of their own. .

$272.50 Calls – Range: .43-3.35 – Max Gain: 679%
$273 Calls – Range: .28-2.82 – Max Gain: 907%
$273.50 Calls – Range: 17-2.35 – Max Gain: 1282%
$274 Calls – Range: .09-1.82 – Max Gain: 1922%

As we mentioned above, we’ve got a fresh idea for the SPY for today as well. in the wake of this morning’s positive jobs numbers. We’re going to keep an eye on the SPY 07/09 (Expire Today*) 275.50-277 Calls.

*Speculation in these contracts today is tantamount to trading weekly options on a Friday. Should NOT be attempted, except by veteran traders with disposal funds!


Intrexon Corp. XON – Form-4 Bottom Bouncer

We’re very interested in the current scenario with XON. We noticed the CEO purchasing roughly $100M worth of the company’s stock last week at 13.37, and we like the current technical setup as well, with a strong bottom bounce in progress along with a gap on the chart to the upside.

We could see an significant move happening for the stock itself, but we also want to include an extended term options idea for more leverage in the case of a protracted recovery, which is presently looking like a solid possibility. We’ll have an eye on the XON 08/17 $14-17 Calls.
