Happy Holidays!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, ONE AND ALL!

We want to start things off this short trading week, by wishing everyone a happy holiday season, no matter how you celebrate!

This is traditionally a very low-key week for the markets, as most people are focused on enjoying their families or time off from work at this time. Especially with no major earnings reporters on the calendar, we expect a relatively subdued start to the week as well.


General Mills, Inc. GIS 

One thing we do want to do is circle back to the call we made for the GIS options chain on Wednesday, which made a pretty good move into the end of the week, and will be high on our watchlist , as further gains are very possible.

We had highlighted the GIS 01/17 $55 Calls, and they subsequently made a very impressive move from .10-.29, marking a rise of 190% We will continue to keep an eye on this play, as GIS attempts to break the double top around the $54 mark. A break of that area will send these gains soaring.


Fresh Options Ideas: 

Finally, it wouldn’t feel like the start of a fresh trading week without some fresh options speculation.

We’re going to radar the SPG 01/17 $145-150 Calls as the chart is in a prime bottom-bounce setup. We took it out to the January 17th’s to give ourselves ample time to witness what appears to be an impending rebound.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Plays

MasterCraft Boat Holdings, Inc. MCFT – Fresh Idea

We’ve picked up on a very interesting chart shape in Mastercraft this morning. The stock was well on its way to a solid recovery after bouncing off of its bottom at the end of last month. Despite the company’s earnings beat yesterday, the stock saw a gap-down followed by another bottom bounce.

We are interested in tracking the MCFT 10/18 $15-17.50 Calls in the weeks ahead, which will work out quite nicely if the stock manages another rebound similar to the one it exhibited in recent weeks.


Overstock.com Inc OSTK – Recap

The last time we tagged OSTK was a couple of weeks ago, on the morning of August 27th. We had scored some solid opportunities with short-term options in its chain the week before, but that report was a simple tag on the stock itself.

Subsequent to that highlight of OSTK, the stock saw a low of 14.72. That was followed by seven consecutive bull sessions by the stock, including yesterday’s which sent OSTK to a new high 27.38. That works out to an upswing of 86% in the month of September alone.


Fresh Options Idea:
SPY Weekly $301-302.50 Calls*

*Never trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an advanced level trader with access to disposable funds!

Weatherford International plc  WFTIQ

Also catching our eye today, thanks to our longtime reader Mark, is a news release by an OTC company which has just scored a huge contract with PBR (Petrobras), a stock that we have an extensive history covering. It is Brazil’s state run oil conglomerate, and the deal represents the biggest score for WFTIQ to date.

We’ll include a clip of, and link to, the PR below, and what we’re looking at for the stock is the potential for some rapid near-term gains as a response to the big news.

BAAR, Switzerland, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Weatherford International plc (OTC-PINK: WFTIQ) (the “Company” or “Weatherford”), announced the signing of an $87 million contract for fishing and intervention services with Petrolio Brasileiro S.A., which is more commonly known as Brazilian-based multinational corporation Petrobras. The four-year agreement represents the largest fishing contract ever signed by Weatherford. It also constitutes the largest single global award for this scope in the recent past. (>>View Full PR)


FuelCell Energy, Inc. FCEL 

FCEL is a play we’ve also been familiar with in the past, and we tagged in yesterday morning’s premarket watchlist after the company’s big Q3 revenue beat on Friday.

It was a solid choice, with the stock making a nice move on day for us. FCEL traded in a range from .48-.64, marking a move of 33% We’ll be interested to see if it can build off of that momentum and continue to rise up off of its recent relative lows.
