Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Stocks & Options Movers

General Mills, Inc. GIS – Options Idea

As our regular readers are perfectly aware, we never stop looking for earnings related options plays. Even now, amid a relative lull in quarterly reports, we’re seeing an interesting possibility with General Mills.

After its Q4 earnings report this morning, wherein a solid beat on profits was achieved, the stock is up to the tune of 2% in the premarket. There is also a large gap on the chart to the $50-area. In this situation, we’re interested in tracking the GIS Weekly $45 & $47.50 Calls for the remainder of the week.


TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We wanted to come back to comment on TRXC this morning as well. We tagged this stock for observation just a shade over a month ago on May 23rd, and since that time, the stock has enjoyed a very solid uptrend which has led to new highs this week.

On the day of our initial alert on TRXC, we had observed a low of 2.82, and the srtock never fell below that point. Yesterday’s new high came in at 5.70, marking an upswing of 102% in a matter of four and-a-half weeks!



Kopin Corp. KOPN

For something new to put on our radars this morning we also want to make mention of KOPN. As you can on the annotated chart below, at the present time, KOPN is displaying a strong multiple bottom formation, in addition to having just reached heavily oversold territory.

We are going to place KOPN on watch in the days ans perhaps weeks ahead and will be interested to see how it behaves with this cherry of a technical setup.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Reviewing Big Runners

Gevo, Inc. GEVO

We threw GEVO into our extended watchlist on our website at BlueHorseshoeStocks.com yesterday morning, however, the tag did not make it into our email newsletters in time. Occasionally we will include last-minute ideas exclusive to the website, which is which we encourage our readers to check there each morning, even if they’ve already read our emails.

GEVO turned out to be the NASDAQ’s top traded stock of the day, posting an excellent single-session move from 4.42 to an impressive high of 21.00; a 375% rip.

This came on the heels of the EPA decision raising the amount of isobutanol in 16% gasoline blends, up from 12.5% This represents a significant margin of increase for the biofuel producer. With such a quick surge, we’ll also want to watch on the back end when the stock course corrects. There may also be a dip-and-rip opportunity on the horizon that we’ll be looking out for.


Canada Goose Holdings Inc. GOOS

We successfully tracked a host of GOOS weekly options calls on Friday morning, but today we wanted to return to comment on the solid move the stock itself has made since our alert.

From its low of 53.18 on Friday, GOOS has now made a very respectable two-session swing, reaching 63.30 yesterday. That’s a 25% increase, and for or a $50+ stock, a very nice two day performance.


Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD

Speaking of great calls we’ve made on the stock side of things, we’ve been very successful with our coverage of AMD this spring. We initially tagged the stock in our watchlist on April 26th, and included a reminder on the 5th of this month, as the stock has posted a near-continual bull run in that time.

The day of our initial alert saw a low of 10.61 and never looked back, gradually leading to a new high of 17.34 yesterday. That works out to a rise of 64%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HOME Recap & More

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – Options Idea

We’d like to start things off this morning by taking a look at BABA, which recently has formed a strong double-bottom setup on the chart. The stock is gapping up in premarket trading today, currently in the mid-$170′s and we’d like to formulate an extended term options idea to track over the next few weeks for an overdue recovery.

We’re going to zero in on the BABA 05/04 $180-187.50 Calls, which will give us plenty of time for the stock to realize the kind of gains that look very possible from a technical standpoint at this juncture.


At Home Group, Inc. HOME – Update

On the morning of March 23rd, we had selected a longer-term idea for the HOME options chain, and we wanted to take a look at the moves it has made in the three and a half weeks since that time.

Our target set of contracts was the HOME 04/20 $30 Calls, and with the stock surging to nearly $35 this week, those calls have been pushed well into the money and produced a heck of a gain opportunity. From the low shortly after our initial alert to a new high reach yesterday, we’ve seen a run from 1.31-5.50, which represents a chance at profits of up to 320%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OREX Recap & More


Orexigen Therapeutics, Inc. OREX

On a day like yesterday, when the markets take an unexpected and brutal bath, it always helps to find a trend-bucker. Fortunately for us, all was not lost because we had included OREX on our watchlist in our premarket report.

Even as most other stocks wavered under the intensity of yesterdays bearish push, OREX ran from a daily low of .23 to a high of .39 for a 70% intraday run. It also closed with strength at .34, not too far below the area of a massive gap on the chart. We’ll definitely want to continue monitoring OREX, as even a partial filling of said gap would produce further gains of a significant magnitude.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RIOT, EGBN & More

Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

We began tracking RIOT on November 2nd at a low of 6.33, mentioning it three times over the course of the next month. The stock saw a massive run ending last Monday hitting a high of 21.76, for a hefty move of 244%

It spent the rest of the week beginning to rebound off of the pullback to the $12-range which followed that huge spike, and is presently trading back in the $16-range. We’re going to want to continue to keep an eye on this blockchain related play, as almost anything even remotely tied to the white-hot sector has a chance to see further surges at any time if the price of BTC sees more new highs. As of this morning, one Bitcoin is worth just over $11,000USD.


Verizon, Inc. VZ

It has been a very solid run for VZ since we signaled a range of contracts to observe on the morning of November 17th, the VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls.  We saw the stock trading at 44.62, and that was followed by sessions after session of new highs leading all the way through Friday, when it reached  51.55.

We wanted to provide yet another update on the total ranges of gains that were available in our options idea in the two weeks we’ve been tracking it now:

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls
$45 Calls – Range: 1.08 -6.40 – Max Gain: 493%
$46 Calls – Range: .59-5.48 – Max Gain: 829%
$47 Calls – Range: .39-4.56 – Max Gain: 1069%
$48 Calls – Range: .23-3.34 – Max Gain: 1352%



Eagle Bancorp, Inc. EGBN

We noticed an interesting set of events playing out with EGBN- the stock absolutely fell off a cliff last week, tumbling from nearly $70 on Wednesday, to the low $46-range on Friday. Apparently it was the result of a hyped up short seller report by Aurelius Value, an anonymous online firm that supports short-sellers. The company published a statement of its own calling the report “a deceptive and materially misleading piece“.

We tend to give credence to the actual company’s public statement rather than a group of shorts hiding behind a curtain somewhere. That’s why we’re going to place the EGBN 12/15 $50-60 Calls on watch in the days and weeks ahead, for what should be a forthcoming recovery in EGBN.
