Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Recap & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Followup

Only seven trading days have elapsed since we slated some longer-term Apple options ideas for observation on the 1st of this month. We were looking at the AAPL 06/01 $167.50 & $170 Calls and we’re pleased to return just over a week later to report that AAPL has mounted a heck of a seven day upswing, facilitating some fantastic gains in our flagged contracts.

So far the $167.50′s have traded in a range from 4.36-19.98, an increase of 358%, while the $170′s exploded 435% from 3.30 to 17.64.



Trip Advisor, Inc. TRIP Weekly $45.50 & $46 Calls

We also had some fresh options ideas in yesterday’s morning report, the TRIP Weekly $45.50 & $46 Calls. What we got from those, was a highly respectable intraday performance.

The $45.50 Calls surged up from .85-2.30 for a single-session rip of 170%, and the $46′s ran from 1.35-2.77, a 105% pop.



Helios & Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We want to place HMNY on intensive bottom watch this morning after noticing the setup on the chart. The stock has been absolutely punished over the past couple of trading days, and as you can see below, the RSI is now in heavily oversold territory.

The last time the stock was this oversold, at the beginning of April, it recorded an upswing of over 100% so we’ll want to keep an eye on its activities. at least for the remainder of the week, and possibly longer.


More Fresh Options Ideas:
ROKU Weekly $38-40 Calls
FARO 05/18 $50 & $55 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GERN Recap & More

Geron Corp. GERN – Recap
It’s all well and good to seek out stocks that are set to make a big jump overnight, but slower growth plays also interest us greatly. GERN is an example of a stock that we tagged near the beginning of last month (02.05) which has performed well over an extended period of several weeks.

Subsequent to our tag of GERN, the stock saw a low of 2.025, and in a series of small, incremental daily gains, it steadily made its way up to a high of 4.47 yesterday, representing an increase of 121%. That’s a very respectable gain in roughly a six week period.


Wheeler Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc. WHLR

We want to take this opportunity to place WHLR on watch as a potential bottom-play. The stock has been greatly abused over the past several months, falling well below all its moving averages, and reaching egregiously oversold territory. There is also a fairly large gap on chart to the upside, something for which we routinely look.

We’ll keep an eye on WHLR in sessions to come looking for the confirmation of a bounce. It certainly has plenty of room to run when that occurs, so keep a sharp eye out.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NFLX Options & More

Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. SRNE

Recently we’ve been delving back into our reports from late 2017, to review the ones that have made notable moves, and next up on the list SRNE.

We last signaled our interest in this as a bottom-watch play back on November 16th, and while it took a couple weeks for it to get out of its sideways-trading funk, the beginning of December brought the start of a fantastic run from an ultimate low of 2.15 that has persisted into the present. Yesterday the stock reached a new annual high of 8.05 (highest PPS since October ’16), marking an increase of 274%

This most recent push in what has definitely been a steady but sharp rise of the past six weeks may have been helped along by Celgene’s (CELG) buyout of Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), which share a market space with SRNE. The company also has some promising treatments in its pipeline.

Volume has recently been ramping up in a big way, too, so we’ll definitely continue to have an eye on this stock’s activity.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options Idea

We’re always looking for a good opportunity to make some quick gains in the wake of a big company’s earnings, and NFLX is one that we’ve had quite a bit of experience with in that arena.

That’s why we’re going to enter an idea into the log this morning in the NFLX Weekly $247.50-255 Calls as the company posted a promising report including the addition of more than eight million new subscribers even despite its recent price increases.

Shares of NFLX broke a double top and are in blue skies, hitting a new all time high, so we’re very interested to track the ideas we’ve identified. They may be able to furnish us with some impressive gains.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ACBFF Recap & More

Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

Yesterday morning, we were just recapping the recent excellent performance of MARA since our alert on November 2nd, at which time e would observe a low of 1.19 in the stock.

MARA had run all the way up to more than $6 as of Friday, and we mentioned that the stock was gapping up even further in yesterday’s premarket. We came back for this one at an excellent time, and the stock posted yet another bullish session. It picked up right where it left off on Friday once the session commenced, with MARA running to 10.03.

That high also represented an increase of 743% from our original low from early this month. From the current point, the stock has begun to look extremely overbought, so we may need to look out for a dip-and-rip scenario to remain interested in this play moving forward. But the huge move is already on the books and we’ve been very pleased with its performance.


Aurora Cannabis, Inc. ACBFF

We also want to go over the solid run from ACBFF since we last mentioned it on November 7th. We included it as part of a cannabis commentary, wherein we urged readers to consider the current and expected strength in the Canadian marijuana markets. Aurora has long been one of our favorite Canadian pot plays, and for good reason.

On the day of our last alert on ACBFF, it traded for as little as 2.777/share, and as of yesterday’s new high of 6.65, we’ve now seen a run totaling 139% from this play. A very respectable run for the month of November. This is certain to be one of many cannabis stocks from North of the Border that we’re going to continually track with Canada’s nationwide marijuana legalization headed this way in just 8 month’s time.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DE Review & More

Deere & Co. DE – Options Review

We were following a group of ideas in the DE options chain last week, and saw some really nice activity both before and after the Thanksgiving holiday. Despite only a half-day of trading on Friday,  our targets, the Deere & Co. DE Weekly $143-146 Calls,  enjoyed new highs on the day.

We mentioned to our readers that despite seeing multi-bag gains prior to the holiday, it appeared as if they were in line for further moves to the upside, and we were absolutely correct. The following figures represent our observed lows from Wednesday morning, and the subsequent ranges to Friday’s impressive new highs:

DE Weekly $143-146 Calls
$143 Calls –
Range:  .82-4.80 – Max Gain: 485%
$144 Calls – Range:  .50-3.82 – Max Gain: 664%
$145 Calls – Range:  .30-2.80 – Max Gain: 833%
$146 Calls – Range: .19-1.86 – Max Gain: 879%

To throw into contrast the kind of success we’ve had over the past few weeks with our options trading ideas, keep in mind that these gains are mild compared to some of the ones we’ve seen!


Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

We slated MARA for observation a few weeks ago back on November 2nd, and at the time, we’d witness a low of 1.19 in the stock. Despite shortened holiday weeks being traditionally subdued, that did not apply to MARA last week as it streaked to some very pleasing new highs. On Friday’s short day, the stock ran all the way up to 6.04, marking an increase of 408% for the month of November.

This morning, it gapped up like crazy, seeing a high of 16.99 in premarket trading, which extended that range to a walloping 1328% The stock did come back down to Earth, but is still trading higher than Friday’s highs, so we’re very curious to see how the start to this fresh and full trading week is going to play out for MARA.


VelocityShares 3x Long Nat Gas ETN (UGAZ)

We also want to begin tracking the activity in UGAZ, a Natural Gas ETN. Not only is this Note approaching heavily oversold territory after having just set a new annual low on Friday, but we’re heading into the thick of the cold weather season, when such heating fuels go into much higher demand.

We’re already seeing a gap up this morning, and will put  UGAZ on an extended term bottom watch. A hypothetical return to its prices from early this summer would approach a double-bagger on the chart from here.
