Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SNAP Review & More

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Idea

After a mixed bag of news yesterday that included a 12% stake being bought in SNAP by China’s Tencent Holdings, and a poor quarterly earnings report, we signaled our interest in tracking the  SNAP Weekly $15-14 Puts for quick strike trades.

It turned out to be a good idea as the stock gapped down and continued to plunge, sending our observed contracts hurtling upward.

$15 Puts – Range: 1.10-2.85 – Max Gain: 159%
$14.50 Puts – Range: .76-2.30 – Max Gain: 203%
$14 Puts – Range: .50-1.89 – Max Gain: 278%

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX – Options Update

We began tracking the VRX Weekly $13-14 Calls on Tuesday morning, and saw some pretty nice moves out of them early on in that session.

With the help of another, even more bullish session we were able to see our observed ranges on the specified contracts extended by a considerable margin. The following table represents Tuesday’s lows to yesterday’s highs, and the two-day, multi-bag gains that were possible.

$13 Calls – Range: .82-2.28 – Max Gain: 178%
$13.50 Calls – Range: .52-1.75 – Max Gain: 237%
$14 Calls – Range: .28-1.30 – Max Gain: 364%

Fresh Options Idea: AT&T, Inc. T

We’ve had our eye on AT&T for awhile as it was recently searching out a bottom, waiting for the proper time to pounce with a potential recovery play. Over the past couple of sessions, the stock has establish a solid base of support and begun to try to come up off of those lows, which are the lowest of the year so far.

We’re going to be looking after the T 01/19 $34-36 Calls for a longer-term rebound play, in the days and weeks ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays & More

DISH Network Corp DISH

There’s a possible bottom-bounce opportunity brewing with DISH, with the stock posting its first bullish session after a string of five consecutive days of getting beaten to a pulp.

We want to signal a range of September calls that would stand to make considerable moves if the stock can mount an extended recovery. We like the volatility that DISH provides, and will be looking for it to test the 200DMA (61.38) while  tracking the DISH 09/08 $60-62.50 Calls over the days and weeks ahead.  .

Snap, Inc. SNAP

This is another stock that’s gotten beaten up recently, but instead of a handful of sessions, SNAP has been under consolidation for more than two months. In fact, the vast majority of the time since its IPO has been spent on the backslide.   It only recently began to record higher lows off of its newly established all-time low, and indicators on the chart suggest that a more convincing rebound could be in the cards.

We’ll want to pay close attention to the company’s post-market earnings call this afternoon, which could be a turning point in the early history of this relatively new stock.

Post-Earnings Gappers

We’re seeing premarket gap-ups for all three of the following stocks. We’re going to issue some options ideas for each chain to watch for day trades and or swing trades into tomorrow, depending on the activity we observe.  

Macy’s, Inc. M – Weekly $22-24 Calls
Perrigo Co. plc PRGO – Weekly $73-75 Calls
Canada Goose Holdings, Inc. GOOS – Weekly $19-20.50 Calls

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: Huge VRX Calls, New Ideas & More

Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX

Our latest round of VRX Calls will almost certainly go down as one of our best three-day swings on any idea we’ve ever formulated. Beginning on Tuesday when we offered up the VRX Weekly $10.50-12 Calls as a target range. That day the stock traded as low as 10.57 before beginning this epic run that facilitated some truly impressive gains. VRX continued to bull its way to new highs yesterday, hitting 14.55, which in itself represents a 38% rise over Tuesday’s low.

Just like we did in yesterday’s premarket report, we’ve included the intraday moves, as well as our overall observed gains. 

$10.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.95-3.89 – Daily Gain: 118% – Total Range: .40-3.89 – 3-Day Swing: 873%
$11 Calls – Daily Range: 1.46-3.50 – Daily Gain: 140% – Total Range: .18-3.50 – 3-Day Swing: 1844%
$11.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.27-2.99 – Daily Gain: 135% – Total Range: .08-2.99 – 3-Day Swing: 3638%
$12 Calls – Daily Range: .51-2.51 – Daily Gain: 392% – Total Range: .02-2.51 – 3-Day Swing: 12450%

A hearty congratulations goes out to anyone who took advantage of one of our best ideas of the year so far!

Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. NAK

Following our alerts on the stock in March at which time we stated that we believed there was “serious upside potential” for NAK, the stock has proven our assumption to be accurate. It has lived up to that potential as well in recent week, and this morning we’re seeing the stock gapping up to new highs in the premarket today with shares changing hands for as much as 2.60.

From the 1.06 low we observed in March, that represents a roughly two-month upswing of 145%

Today’s heightened activity likely stems from the new announcement the company made via PR this morning. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alaska-based Pebble Limited Partnership, and the US Environmental Protection Agency have reached a settlement agreement with respect to the parties’ longstanding legal dispute.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement, EPA has agreed the Pebble Project can proceed into normal course permitting under the Clean Water Act and National Environmental Policy Act. (>View Full PR)

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Ideas

SNAP took a pounding yesterday after releasing earnings that many are referring to as a disaster, but is recovering in the premarket today. We want to try to signal a range of calls to coincide with what could be a significant course-correct.

We’re looking at the SNAP Weekly $18 Calls* for quick daytrading opportunities, as well as the SNAP 6/16 $18-19 Calls for a longer-term recovery idea.

Bonus Idea: AZN $32-33.50 Weekly Calls*

*Never attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are a highly experienced trader- it’s an exceedingly risky proposition.
