Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SNAP Review, New Ideas

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Update

We correctly called the bounce on SNAP in our premarket report on Friday and signaled a couple of contracts for observation, the SNAP 6/16 $18 & 19 Calls.

After those made intraday moves of 69% and 93% respectively to close out the week, we rehashed them in yesterday’s report along with mentioning that rolling up to the $20-level was something to consider, given the activity we were observing.

Not only did the $18′s and $19′s extend their gains, but the $20′s got in on the fun as well:

06/16 $18 Calls – Intraday Range: 2.00-3.10 (+55%) – 2-Day Swing: 163%
06/16 $19 Calls – Intraday Range: 1.38-2.34 (+70%)  – 2-Day Swing: 212%
06/16 $20 Calls - Intraday Range: .85-1.65 – Max Gain: 94%

With SNAP gapping up in the premarket once again, we expect to see these ranges extended even further today. Cheers to anyone who grabbed a piece of the action!

Weibo Corp. WB – Fresh Idea

To try to continue along with our options success, we’re looking at the Chinese social media network Weibo and its earnings beat this morning.

The stock has already been breaking out and it appears as if today’s earnings figures could propel it to even more gains over the short term, so we’re going to be looking at the WB Weekly $67.50-70 Calls.


Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. LEXG

It was only yesterday morning in our premarket report that we were encouraging our readers to get involved with our daily in-session trader’s chatroom*. Sure enough, more proof of why we periodically remind our subscribers of these daily Skype chats came to us in the form of LEXG.

As you can see from the screen snap below, it was just after 10am when we alerted our members to movement in the stock, and it subsequently ran from .0009 to .002, which represents an intraday rip of 122%

We always find winners to put here in our premarket reports, but to catch even more opportunities on the fly as they come up after the open, our trader’s chats are the way to go.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, SGMO Recaps & More

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Recap

We called for a course-correct on SNAP in our premarket report on Friday after the stock had taken a post-earnings pounding the previous day. Our hunch was spot-on, as SNAP came roaring back to fill a portion of the gap that its beat-down had created, and regardless of which contracts had been chosen, there were sizable gains there for the taking..

We were looking at the SNAP Weekly $18 Calls for potential daytrades, as well as the SNAP 6/16 $18 & 19 Calls for a longer-term idea.

The Weekly $18′s ran from .25-1.38 for a 452% rip. The 6/16 $18′s made a 69% move from 1.18-2.00, while the 06/16 $19 Calls traded from .75-1.45; a 93% pop. We’ll continue to monitor those June 16th calls, and take rolling up to the $20-level into consideration as the stock is once again up in the premarket.

We also added AZN $32-33.50 Weekly Calls as an extra idea on Friday morning and two out of the four contracts in that range provided traders with solid chances for multi-bag gains as well. The movement came in the $33 Calls which ran 112% from .40-.85, and the $33.50′s, which saw a 450% surge from .10-.55.


Sangamo Therapeutics, Inc. SGMO

We had initially tagged SGMO for observation in Thursday morning’s extended watchlist, and the stock finished out the week in strong fashion, recording higher highs and higher lows each day.

On the whole, we’ve thus far seen SGMO trade up from Thursday’s low of 6.05 to a high of 8.5385 on Friday. That works out to a two-day swing of 41%, which is actually quite impressive for a stock in the $6-8 range. We’ll continue to track SGMO in the event that the trend spills over into this week.


BravaTek Solutions, Inc. BVTK

BVTK is a top-notch super sub-penny runner that came out of our daily trader’s chatroom* a month ago and went from .0002-.0041 in a two-day span.

Following that epic run there were a few profitable dip-and-rip opportunities, and Friday we noticed the stock making another solid 100% intraday day run on increasing volume. We want to keep this one on watch this week for a possible continuation of momentum!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MNKD, VRX Recaps & More

MannKind Corp. MNKD

We tagged MNKD a week ago today in our premarket report on May 4th, and wanted to circle back around this morning to go over the excellent performance the stock has recorded since then. At the time the stock had been looking like it wanted to rebound after crashing down to a bottom and our decision to mention it turned out to be timed perfectly.

In each of the past five sessions MNKD has registered higher highs and higher lows, continuing to gain back ground that it had lost in previous weeks. From last Thursday’s low of .688, the stock has gone on to reach a high of 1.88, which represents an increase of 173% while volume over the same period has been impressive. The stock traded its highest volume since 2014 yesterday, so we’re really eager to continue tracking the activity in MNKD.


Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX

Despite already showing us amazing single-session gains ranging from 380-3600% on Tuesday, which we recapped in yesterday’s premarket report, our options idea for the VRX chain, the Weekly $10.50-12 Calls saw even further advances once the session kicked off.

We’ve included the total possible intraday gains from yesterday’s session, as well as the overall gains from our observed lows on Tuesday morning.

$10.50 Calls
– Daily Range: 1.43-2.36 – Daily Gain: 65% – Total Range: .40-2.36 – Two-Day Swing: 490%
$11 Calls – Daily Range: .92-1.99 – Daily Gain: 116% – Total Range: .18-1.99 – Two-Day Swing: 1005%
$11.50 Calls – Daily Range: .53-1.42 – Daily Gain: 68% – Total Range: .08-1.42 – Two-Day Swing: 1675%
$12 Calls – Daily Range: .29-.99 – Daily Gain: 241% – Total Range: .02-.99 – Two-Day Swing: 4850%

Even though it’s not even close to our only percentage gainer in the thousands, this round of options calls with VRX is certainly going down as one of our most solid picks of the year so far. Even if someone had only bought shares in VRX stock itself, they could have been up just over 22% on this two-day swing.


Groupon, Inc. GRPN

We want to place GRPN on recovery watch after noticing the stock coming up off a double-bottom, with a gap on the chart to fill to the upside, as you can see on the included snapshot.

We like to monitor plays in this position, so we’ll put it on our radars in the days and weeks ahead. Given the look of this chart, we’d classify this as relatively low-risk, low-reward in comparison one of our average plays.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TEUFF Recap, Options & More

Box Ships, Inc. TEUFF

For the second day in a row yesterday, TEUFF provided us a chance at appreciable intraday gains. On Wednesday, following its inclusion in our premarket report, the stock traded in a solid range from a low of .018 to .0276 for a 53% jump that day.

The momentum continued, spilling over into yesterday dipping slightly in the morning to .0246 before ripping its way up to .035. That worked out to an intraday move of 42%, and an total increase of 94% over our observed low from Wednesday morning.

It marked the fifth consecutive session that TEUFF has posted higher highs and higher lows, and we’ll stay hot on its trail for as long as it continues to do so.


Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. OCUL

We tagged OCUL for observation yesterday as well, and it made a modest but notable move itself, from a low of 5.09 to 5.95; a 17% jump. Perhaps the biggest story with this play is the massive amount of buying that flowed into the stock in a single day. At 7M shares traded, it fell just a tad shy of its all-time single-session volume record (02/15/16, 7.2M).

With that kind of accumulation in effect, we’ll want to leave a slot on our radars open for OCUL in sessions to come.


Viper Energy Partners VNOM

We’re noticing a potential opportunity with VNOM this morning, a stock that is showing some signs of life after what has been a rough couple of weeks. We’re also taking notice of a huge Form-4 buy that came in earlier in the week, to the tune of $31M at an execution price of 15.60.

Yesterday the stock broke the 200DMA in a bullish manner, and it appears to be filling the gap on the chart left by the recent  backslide. We’re going to track this play for the possibility of an extended recovery, and also tag the VNOM 09/16 $15 and 17.50 Calls for observation.
