Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FIVE Recap & More

Five Below, Inc. FIVE – Options Recap

The fresh options idea we included in yesterday morning’s premarket report, the FIVE Weekly $90-95 Calls, was related to the company’s Q1 earnings report and strong guidance.

Unsurprisingly, those ideas provided us with solid chances for intraday profits as the stock ran from the $95 to the $100 range on the day. Be aware that despite the odd increments, the following are all of the contracts contained within our listed range. The moves they made were as follows:

$90 Calls – Range: 6.50-10.70 – Max Gain: 65%
$91 Calls – Range: 6.00-8.65 – Max Gain: 44%
$95 Calls – Range: 2.85-6.00 – Max Gain: 111%

Axovant Sciences, Inc. AXON

This will be third consecutive day we’ve had to mention AXON, which we initially tagged on Wednesday morning following a large group of Form-4 buy on Tuesday. This insiders were obviously pre-informed about the news of an $840M+ licensing deal for AXON’s Parkinson’s gene therapy that would be released the following day.

Our sleuthing gave us a leg-up and our call was timed with precision. We observed a low of 3.27 on Tuesday and yesterday the stock saw a high of 6.59, which represents an excellent three-day swing of 102%

Baidu, Inc. BIDU – Update

On Friday morning, we had targeted the BIDU Weekly $250-255 Calls in the wake of the company’s quarterly earnings report, and while we didn’t see all the contracts in that range heat up, there was some very nice activity and a chance for a daily profit in the $250 Calls.

Those ran from a low of .46 and impressively hit a high of 2.97 for potential intraday gains of up to 546% which ended up working out to be one of our top plays of the week.

Aqua Metals, Inc. AQMS

We most recently tagged AQMS on April 4th, and after just a slight period of consolidation the stock found support and began a recovery which has covered a good amount ground this month.

From a low of 2.11 AQMS has traded as high as 3.56, a 69% increase in a matter of just a few weeks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Ripping & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

Fresh for yesterday’s premarket report was an idea we formulated for the SPY after it appeared we were headed for another bullish session, the SPY Weekly $270-272 Calls. When the markets behaved as we suspected they would, that provided us with some really great chances for single-session profits in our target contracts.

The gains were strong across the board, with the following excellent moves being made on the day:

$270 Calls – Range: .85-3.44 – Max Gain: 304%
$270.50 Calls – Range: .70-2.98 – Max Gain: 326%
$271 Calls – Range: .52-2.59 – Max Gain: 398%
$271.50 Calls – Range: .39-2.14 – Max Gain: 449%
$272 Calls – Range: .30-1.78 – Max Gain: 493%

Today, if the bonanza continues, we’ll look to roll up our strike prices to the 272.50-274 Calls today.


Under Armour, Inc. UAA – Final Update

This is the fourth day this week we’ve been tracking our UAA calls that we submitted in our premarket report on Tuesday, the UAA Weekly $15.50-16.50 Calls. We wanted to circle back around one last time to provide an update on the ranges we observed this week.

The lows listed represent those from Tuesday, and the highs were all registered yesterday, so the percentage figures given represent a three day overall upswing:

$15.50 Calls – Range: .60-2.85 – Max Gain: 375%
$16 Calls – Range: .34-2.38 – Max Gain: 600%
$16.50 Calls – Range: .16-2.00 – Max Gain: 1150%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: XXII Update & More

22nd Century Group, Inc. XXII

It was back on November 7th that we highlighted a large group of cannabis stocks, and professed our unyielding interest in the space as a whole. XXII was among those that we specifically highlighted as promising pot stocks in that report, and despite it being more than 8 weeks later, the stock has continually bulled its ways to new highs ever since.

We wanted to swing back around this morning to outline the excellent run it has been on since November. Subsequent to our report on the 7th the stock saw an absolute bottom of 2.00 even before beginning its months-long ascent. Yesterday the stock reached yet another new high of 3.85, marking an overall upswing of 93%


Yield10 Bioscience, Inc. YTEN

Following a huge single session run in early December, YTEN was unable to hold onto any of the ground it had gained, and with the ‘help’ of a massive public offering, continued to descend until recently.

This week, the stock has begun to show signs of a bottom bounce, and we’re going to want to add it to the radar on a recovery watch. As you can see form the chart snapshot included below, there is a lot of room for a potential surge, including a gap to fill to the upside.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DMPI Recap & More

Del Mar Pharmaceuticals, Inc . DMPI

We wanted to swing back around to recap the solid performance of DMPI since we tagged it the day after the Christmas break a couple of weeks back.

It was just a couple sessions later that the stock would find support at .96, and begin a pretty substantial run up the chart. It was helped along by the last six consecutive sessions registering higher base levels of support as the stock has crept all the way up to a high of 1.75, recorded on Friday.

That worked out to a move of 82% in less than two trading weeks, while volume over the same period has been heightened. The high coincided with the current 200DMA, so we’ll look for DMPI to possibly crack that 1.75 mark and head for blue skies.



Kohls Corp KSS

We want to include an options idea for Kohls as we kick off the first full trading week of 2018, on the heels of a solid earnings report.

The company posted strong sales for the holiday season, while giving a significant boost to full year guidance. Shares jumped accordingly in premarket trading, and we are going to be waiting with some targeted weekly contracts to coincide with the activity. We’re going to signal and track the KSS Weekly $58-60 Calls.
