Fresh Ideas for an Exciting Friday Finish

Dominos Pizza Inc. DPZ – Options Recap 

We have been very light on options plays over the past week or two, as we are still in a lull for earnings reporters, which are the typical catalysts that we use to take advantage of the inherent volatility that generally follows a quarterly number drop.

. We still have managed to find an opportunity here and there, and yesterday our instincts told us to go short on Dominos. We signaled the DPZ Weekly $427.50-417.50 Puts and saw some good moves

DPZ Weekly $427.50-417.50 Puts
$327.50
: 18.85-30.10 (+118%)
$325: 17.99-30.35 (+151%)
$322.50: 13.97-26.10 (+203%)
$320: 11.78-24.90 (+337%)
$317.50: 10.46-21.55 (+118%)

SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY – Options Idea

We have been tracking the $340-341 Calls throughout the week, and based on the solid progress we’ve seen there ansd the premarket activity we’re observing this morning, we’;ll go ahead roll up to the SPY Weekly $344-345 Calls to stay close to the action.


More Fresh Options Ideas

Despite having no earnings to push these along, here are a handful of options plays we’ll be tracking today:

CGC Weekly $18 Calls

Camber Energy, Inc. CEI – Recap

We also want to backtrack a bit to our September 25th call of CEI today following what has been a very respectable run for the stock.

The day after our tag of CEI, the stock saw a low of .5011 and hasn’t looked back. Yesterday, a very impressive intraday move carried it to a new high of 1.43, which works out to an increase of 185% over a span of just ten trading days!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Post-Earnings Options Plays

Energizer Holdings, Inc. ENR 

We’ve been seeking out prime bottom play opportunities this week, and to continue that trend, we’ve run across Energizer this morning on the heels of the stock registering a new annual low yesterday.

In conjunction with the fact that Deutsche Bank just upgraded ENR from a Hold to a Buy rating with a price target of $52/share (trading in the $37-range yesterday), along with indicators that the stock is heavily oversold, and we are confident in calling this one a prime bottom play candidate as well.


Fresh Options Plays 

We also have a pair of fresh earnings-related options ideas to pass along this morning. Post-earnings plays are typically our miost successful, and we’ve got a couple of good hunches about the following contracts as we cruise through this midweek. 

FedEx Corp. FDX –  Already in a good spot on the chart for a possible rebound leading into today’s session with a strong double-bottom setup, we’re looking to FDX options as FedEx’s Q4 results yielded a profits and earnings beat. As a result, we’re going to be tracking the FDX Weekly $157.50-60 Calls.

Micron Technology, Inc. MU – We are also looking at MU, which reported in the post-market yesterday as well, posting a beat on Q3 earnings, and bolstered guidance for sales of computer memory chips. Like the above mentioned play, MU is giving off a heavy multi-bottom signal. In this case we are interested in monitoring the MU Weekly $35-36.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates

MGM Resorts International Inc. MGM

On Monday morning, we issued a Form-4 alert on MGM after witnessing more than $75M in insider buying at a bottom pour in over the course of the previous three sessions.

We can usually have a fairly high rate of confidence that a stock in this situation will produce a rebound, and so far that’s just what we’ve seen. We signaled the MGM 08/16 $28-30 Calls for tracking, and so far, we’ve seen some pretty nice moves.

$28 Calls – Range: 1.09-1.80 – Max Gain: 65%
$29 Calls – Range: .96-1.32 – Max Gain: 38%
$30 Calls – Range: .68-.95 – Max Gain: 40%

There is plenty of time to continue to look after this idea, which could certainly produce further gains from this point forward.

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR

We also added a pair of options contracts to watch in the HEAR chain last Thursday, and while we also have plenty of time to realize added gains in this case as well, the early performance out of these has been noteworthy, especially the $15’s which have already recorded a multi-bag move.

HEAR 10/18 $12.50-15 Calls.
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%
$15 Calls – Range: .20-.50 – Max Gain: 150%

FRESH OPTIONS IDEA: 
Dave & Busters Entertainment Inc. PLAY  07/26 $40-45 Calls 


Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. OCUL – Recap

We also wanted to quickly mention the performance of OCUL since we alerted on the stock last month. It has produced quite a dip and rip since that time, touching a low of 2.38 before running as high as 4.08. That marks a total possible gain of 71% in a span of just over three weeks.
