Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bearish Options, Bottom Play

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. CBRL – Recap

First up this morning is a quick recap of the fresh options idea we formulated for yesterday morning’s premarket report. We had designated the CBRL Weekly $165-170 Calls as our targets of interest.

Two of those three contract sets produced opportunities for multi-bag gains on the day, with the third not far behind: 

$165 Calls – Range: 5.25-9.57 – Max Gain:
227%
$167.50 Calls – Range: 1.20-3.50 – Max Gain: 393%
$170 Calls – Range: .56-1.45 – Max Gain: 227%


DURRECT Corp. DRRX – Recap 

DRRX is a play that we began tracking last month (08/07). Following that initial report, we observed the stock trading for as little 1.22.

In the four weeks which have followed, DRRX has been a steady riser, stair-stepping its way gradually up to its new high yesterday of an even 2.00/share. That works out to a very respectable rise of 64%


Neurotrope, Inc. NTRP

We also want to shine a light on the current setup of the chart on NTRP. Poor marks on for its Alzheimer’s treatment should have pushed it down quite a bit, but there seems to be no readily apparent reason why the stock should have fallen as low as it did following the lackluster report on the company’s clinical trials.

At present the stock is hugely oversold, and from a technical standpoint alone, could begin a reversal on little more than a breath of air. Indication from the MACD suggests convergence toward a bullish cross in the making. Should enough people catch on to the present scenario and load up cheap shares at current pricing, it could happen sooner rather than later. Even a partial fill of the massive gap on the chart would mean big gain chances.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Reviews

OPTIONS REVIEW

We formulated two options ideas for yesterday morning’s premarket report, and with the help of a gap-and-go session for the overall markets, we saw appreciable gains in each and every contract we had designated for observation.

SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY -The SPY is always our go-to when we have a gut feeling about market sentiments, and the number of times we’ve found success with trading its options is practically uncountable at this point. Yesterday’s idea was no exception.

Our targets, the SPY Weekly 292-293.50 Calls performed admirably, providing ourselves and our readers with the following profit chances:

$292 Calls – Range: .91-2.04 – Max Gain: 124%
$292.50 Calls – Range: .60-1.53 – Max Gain: 155%
$293 Calls – Range: .33-1.07 – Max Gain: 224%
$293.50 Calls – Range: .14-.61 – Max Gain: 336%

PVH Corp. PVH

Following a large Form-4 buy on the part of the CEO, we were interested in a longer-term play on PVH, highlighting the PVH 09/20 $75-85 Calls and those were able to get some traction on our first day of observation.

With an expiration still two weeks away, we’ll have plenty of time to realize any further gains, but the first day performance is certainly worthy of mentioning.

$75 Calls – Range: 5.10-7.02 – Max Gain: 38%
$80 Calls – Range: 2.00-3.40 – Max Gain: 70%
$85 Calls – Range: .55-1.25 – Max Gain: 127%


Fresh Options Idea:
PANW Weekly $215-222.50 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big-Time Options Wins

Three Ideas, Three Successes 

We didn’t let the DOW’s biggest drop of the year on Wednesday discourage us from producing three new options ideas for our readers yesterday morning. The three sets of contracts we issued alerts on were the SPY Weekly $284.50-286 Calls, the WMT Weekly $111-114 Calls, and the BABA Weekly $165-170 Calls. 

This morning, we are happy to close out the week by relaying to you, the total trading ranges and possible percentage gains that were there for the taking with all three of our ideas. We’re going to lay them out a bit differently than usual today, but the gains remain the same!

SPY Weekly $284.50-286 Calls
$284.50: 1.00-2.08 (+108%) | $285: .81-1.77 (+119%)
$285.50: .67-1.46 (+118%) | $286: .50-1.22 (+144%)

WMT Weekly $111-114 Calls
$111:
 .55-2.20 (+300%) | $112: .22-1.38 (+572%)
$113: .10-.76 (+660%) | $114: 05-.35 (+600%)

BABA Weekly $165-170 Calls.
$165:
1.50-3.50 (+133%) | $167.50: .55-1.76 (+220%)
$170: .18-.70 (+289%)

Fresh Options Idea: 
We’ll also leave this off for the week with one final idea, the OSTK $18.50-19.50 Calls.



PCT Ltd. PCTL

Earlier in the week when we provided another update on PCTL we mentioned that subsequent to our previous alert, the stock ran from .0085 to a new high of .0228. We also pointed out a patch of resistance around the .029 area, stating that we “wouldn’t be surprised to see PCTL test in upcoming sessions”.

Just a couple of sessions later, yesterday, PCTL did indeed test and break that resistance, setting a new high of .0432. That brings our total observed gain on this stock since August 5th to a whopping 507%



Sintx Technologies, Inc. SINT – Recap

Lastly, we had a runner on yesterday’s extended watchlist was well, as SINT had quite an interesting session. The stock saw an early low of 2.355 before running up to 4.32, for an intraday move of 83%

SINT then lost all of that ground and came down to close at 2.19. What makes that’s interesting is the volatility we’re seeing in the stock, and with SINT now back at a bottom, we could be headed for more intraday opportunities with this play, so we’ll keep it on the radar for now.
