Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Options & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL

Our more seasoned readers will remember a time when we almost exclusively talked about microcaps trading on the OTC, but a few years ago, we decided to go to where the real money was, and have since focused primarily on quick-strike options trading opportunities. It was with AAPL that we got our sea legs in options trading, and it has been a heck of a ride since.

We’re coming back to AAPL once again to use the spike in trading activity associated with the company’s Q3 earnings beat to try to score some nice gains. The stock is gapping up into blue skies here in the premarket after rising to record high valuation, just a stone’s throw from a TRILLION dollar market cap!

We’re going to be monitoring the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls to try to score some nice chances this midweek.


SodaStream International, Inc. SODA

Speaking of earnings beats, SodaStream just reported on its Q2 figures, and is shining in the premarket on the heels of a strong showing and boosted guidance for the future.

We’ll look to take advantage of this situation as well, by earmarking the SODA Weekly $99-105 Calls for observation this morning.


Whirlpool Corp WHR

On Friday, we selected a range of options in the Whirlpool chain, the 08/03 $129-131 Calls, and we wanted to swing back around this morning in order to go over the success we had with those plays.
.
In just a few days time, each set of contracts has made considerable multi-bag moves, which have been as follows:

$129 Calls – Range: .96-2.05 – Max Gain: 114%
$130 Calls – Range: .68-2.20 – Max Gain: 224%
$131 Calls – Range: .55-1.27 – Max Gain: 131%

Judging by the activity thus far, we’re going to want to continue to stay on top of these calls for the remainder of the week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DRI Review & More

Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI

On occasion, we’ll see an opportunity for a longer term move in a stock, and instead of signaling weekly options, we’ll select a later expiration date. This is what occurred with DRI, when we signaled the DRI 07/20 $100-115 Calls back on the 22nd of last month.

After roughly three weeks, DRI has done little else other than continue to climb, and it has provided some really great chances thus far in these contracts that are set to expire this Friday.

Here are the total gains that have been made possible by this idea to date:

$100 Calls – Range: 3.00-12.30 – Max Gain: 310%
$105 Calls – Range: .90-7.30 – Max Gain: 711%
$110 Calls – Range: .30-2.50 – Max Gain: 733%
$115 Calls – Range: .05-.55 – Max Gain: 1000%


Biocept, Inc. BIOC

We also want to track back to our tag of BIOC from Friday. The stock had been showing the beginnings of some bottom bounce activity earlier in the week, and our hunch that further gains were possible turned out to be correct.

BIOC traded in a daily range from 7.06 on up to a high of 12.15, which represented an intraday pop of 72% on Friday.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WGO Earnings Beat & More

Quick Updates

We won’t go into too much detail on these two plays, as we just did writeups on them in yesterday’s report, but each of the following stocks did continue their impressive runs yesterday so we wanted to update readers on the new highs and updates on the total possible gains since our initial alerts.

Gevo, Inc. GEVO - On Monday, we caught GEVO at a low of 4.42 and saw it explode from more than 300% in gain in a single session. Yesterday the trend continued as the stock traded in a daily range from 16.17-24.74. That represented an intraday move of 53% and the new high put our total observed two-day swing at an incredible 460%

_______

Canada Goose Holdings Inc. GOOS – After successfully calling a slew of winning options ideas in GOOS last week, yesterday we mentioned that the move in the stock itself was notable. Our observed low on GOOS from Friday was 53.18 and yesterday the stock reached a new high of 67.74. That’s a three day swing of 27%, which for a $50+ stock, is nothing short of incredible.


Winnebago Industries, Inc. WGO - Fresh Options Idea

We’re always on the lookout for fresh earnings beats to form options ideas from, and despite not currently being in the heart of an earnings season, we did take notice of Winnebago’s impressive beat. We’ll radar the WGO Weekly $43-46 Calls to coincide with the present activity.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JACK Update & More

Jack in the Box, Inc. JACK – Update

As a fresh options trading idea on Friday morning, we submitted the Jack 07/20 $80-90 Calls for observation after noticing the company’s solid earnings report and premarket gap-up. Although we passed over the weeklies for the July 20th calls for a bit more of an extended idea, it took no time at all for those contracts to see significant appreciation.

We’re pleased to say that each of the three selected targets produced respectable single-session moves, and will remain on our radar moving forward. Those potential gains were as follows: ,

$80 Calls – Range: 3.70-5.78 – Max Gain: 56%
$85 Calls – Range: 1.42-2.58 – Max Gain: 82%
$90 Calls – Range: .50-.80 – Max Gain: 60%


aTyr Pharma, Inc. LIFE

We noticed that LIFE woke from a slumber late last week, and began to trend off of its annual lows. We’re going to put it on the radar as a potential recovery play. As you can see, the stock was ridiculously oversold heading into last week, following a massive beating from roughly a month ago.

We believe there is a fair chance that the stock could return to the levels from prior to that backslide, which would spell significant gains from the current PPS.

Social Detention, Inc. SODE

It was just yesterday morning that we commenting on our coverage of SODE, the subject of a special report we did two weeks ago, at which time the stock was trading for as little as .10.

We mentioned the 53% gain it had already made leading into yesterday’s session,
and that we wanted to watch for it to establish higher highs and higher lows, continuing its current uptrend.

We didn’t have to wait for new highs to come rolling in- SODE once again pushed its upper limits and attained a high of .27, marking an overall two-week upswing of 170% It traded with volatility as well, providing not one but four separate intraday swings, as you can see on the intraday chart below.

Signet Jewelers Ltd. SIG – Options Idea

With SIG posting a solid beat on earnings this morning, we’re going to want to be standing ready with a set of options ideas to take advantage of what is some intense premarket acivity, with the stock in the process of filling a gap on the chart from late March.

Based on the stocks early hours performance, we’re going to slate the SIG Weekly $47.50-50 Calls for observation as we head through this midweek.
