Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WMT Options Recap & More

Wal-Mart Stores, inc. WMT – Options Review

We signaled a wide range of options contracts in the Wal Mart chain yesterday, the WMT Weekly $92-96 Calls, and every single one of them produced the opportunity for huge single session gains. It was a post-earnings beat idea, and those have a tendency to work well in our favor.

WMT made a considerable move which allowed for multi-bag gains regardless of which strike price was selected. Those potential profits were as follows:

$92 Calls – Range: 2.55-7.40 – Max Gain: 190%
$92.50 Calls – Range: 2.13-7.15 – Max Gain: 236%
$93 Calls – Range: 1.42-6.58 – Max Gain: 363%
$94 Calls – Range:1.03-5.53 – Max Gain: 437%
$95 Calls – Range: .60-4.50 – Max Gain: 650%
$96 Calls – Range: .23-3.50 – Max Gain: 1421%

It appears as if WMT could keep this train rolling today, so we may look to roll up to the WMT Weekly $98-100 Calls* to stay close to the money.



Fresh Options Ideas:

We also want to put a few contracts from the Foot Locker and Verizon chains on watch today. Footlocker currently has a ripe bottom-play setup happening on the chart, while Verizon is another post-earnings beat idea.

FL Weekly $38-42 Calls*

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls

* Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s just about as risky as it gets.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Trades & More

More Winning Options Trades

We submitted a pair of daytrading ideas for the NVDA and ROKU options chains, and it’s no surprise that both ideas turned out to be winners for us. Our lack of shock stems from the fact that we have been absolutely crushing it when it comes to options. We always have solid success in this arena, but the past few weeks have been more loaded with huge gainers for us more than even we are accustomed to, and Friday continued that trend convincingly.

We had the NVIDIA Corp. – NVDA Weekly $205-212.50 Calls as well as the Roku, Inc. – ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls on watch for the day, and there wasn’t a single contract contained within either of those ranges that didn’t provide us with some really nice chances for big gains. Those were as follows:

NVDA Weekly $205-212.50 Calls
$205 Calls – Range: 7.50-13.59 – Max Gain: 81%
$207.50 Calls – Range: 5.55-11.06 – Max Gain: 99%
$210 Calls – Range: 3.65-8.60 – Max Gain: 136%
$212.50 Calls – Range: 1.90-7.22 – Max Gain: 280%

ROKU Weekly $28-30 Calls
$28 Calls – Range: 2.60-8.00 – Max Gain: 207%
$29 Calls – Range: 1.90-7.22 – Max Gain: 280%
$30 Calls – Range: 1.10-6.50 – Max Gain: 491%


JB&ZJMY Holding Company, Inc. JBZY

We also want to make note of JBZY, which has a pretty good chart setup at the moment. The stock was trending up off of its 50DMA throughout last week, and is sitting at .08 currently.

With a recent run to .16 showing us what this play is capable of in just a short time, we’ll go ahead and put it on watch as we start off a new trading week. As we’ve pointed out on the snapshot below, another bullish cross looks inevitable for the MACD.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates & More


Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Idea

We ‘d like to signal our interest in tracking some SNAP puts in the wake of a poor earnings report wherein it was revealed that the company’s quarterly nearly tripled over Q2. Conversely, we were also hit with the news that China based Tencent Holdings would be taking up a 12% stake in its parent company.

Despite a mixed bag of news this morning, we’re getting a bearish feeling on SNAP, and would like to track some puts through the rest of the week. We’ve had some pretty good success with options ideas for this chain in the past, and conditions appear favorable to possibly see some nice activity in the SNAP Weekly $15-14 Puts.



Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX – Options Update

Yesterday’s options idea pertained to VRX after a solid earnings report, for which we signaled the VRX Weekly $13-14 Calls.

Fast-acting traders had some nice chances for profits early on in the session as those contracts displayed the following moves inside the first hour of trading.

$13 Calls – Range: .82-1.42 – Max Gain: 65%
$13.50 Calls – Range: .52-1.04 – Max Gain: 100%
$14 Calls – Range: .28-.66 – Max Gain: 136%


Chatroom Call

RLOG came up on a routine scan right before the open yesterday after we published our premarket report, but we did catch it in time in our chatroom.

The stock made a run from .67 low to a high of 1.93 for an impressive 188% move. This is another example of why it’s so important to be a part of our daily traders chats- often we find plays that are alerted in the chatroom after our morning reports are published!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Mid-Week Winners & More

Multiple Mid-Week Winners

Yesterday’s premarket report was chock-full of prime opportunities to strike it big with some fantastic intraday gains. Here they are in descending order of magnitude:

Diana Containerships, Inc. DCIX – Like DRYS, which we were tracking on such a monumental run that it got halted, DCIX is another play in the shipping sector, which has been the post-election hot ticket. After we tagged it in yesterday’s report, DCIX managed a hearty run from 8.27 to as high as 26.17, an intraday burst amounting to 216%
_____

Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. SINO – Tally up yet another shipper that we caught just in time to benefit from the rush on the sector. SINO was another inclusion in our Monday watchlist, and it too has produced a multi-bag surge. The stock traded in a range from 3.45 to 7.86 yesterday, allowing for up to 128% in single-session profits. From our observed low of 1.44 on Monday, it marked a three-day uptrend of 446%
_____

Bulova Technologies Group, Inc. BTGI – We also had a pair of subpenny plays put up solid numbers on the day yesterday. We tagged BTGI on Tuesday, observed a modest run on massive volume, and reiterated as much in yesterday’s report. The trend continued, as the stock ran from  .0036-.0059 (+64%) on over 5X its 30-day average volume. From our observed low of .00275 on Tuesday, it went down as an overall two-day swing of 115%
_____

SpectraScience, Inc. SCIE – Rounding out our list of nice gainers from yesterday is SCIE. The stock traded in a comparatively subdued, yet quite notable range from .0019-.003. That was good for gains of up to 58%


Added Notes:

Options Reminder – We also want to remind our readers of our successful hunch that Bank of America would be a good short yesterday. We saw modest gains in our target contracts, BAC Weekly $20.50-19.50 Puts, and will continue to track the added gains that are sure to be caused from another gap-down here in the premarket, and possible continued backslide today. We’ll provide an update on the activity and our total possible gains in tomorrow’s premarket report.

Shipping Watchlist – Granted the excellent activity in the shipping sector that we’ve been mentioning, we thought it would be a good idea to include a handful of other plays in the space to watch in addition the ones we’ve already mentioned this week: RLOG, GSL, CHNR, NMM, OSG, NAO.
