Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup

Apple, Inc. AAPL

We handed our readers Apple on a silver platter yesterday, suggesting they look to the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls for opportunities, and those who heeded that suggestion were met with extremely pleasant results.

Our success with options trading ideas has become so commonplace that we hardly need to mention that all three of the ideas contained in our targeted range produced excellent intraday moves.

The single session gains available to sharp traders were as follows:

$195 Calls – Range: 3.20-6.90 – Max Gain: 116%
$197.50 Calls – Range: 1.71-4.55 – Max Gain: 157%
$200 Calls – Range: .81-2.51 – Max Gain: 210%


SodaStream International, Inc. SODA

Apple wasn’t the only options chain we successfully called yesterday morning. SODA was the other highlighted play for which we signaled our interest, and it ultimately ended up as the NASDAQ’s #3 gainer of the session. We zeroed in on the SODA Weekly $99-105 Calls and two out of the three produced multi-bag moves on the day. 

The $100 Calls traded in a range from 4.42-10.30, marking a gain of 133%  The $105′s fared even better, shooting up 200% from 2.00 to 6.00.


Tesla, inc. TSLA

For a fresh idea, we’re going to be looking at TSLA, which, despite a miss on Q2 earnings, is still gapping up here in the premarket. That’s enough to get get our attention here in the short term regardless of where the stock is ultimately headed .

We’ll look at the TSLA Weekly $320-330 Calls as we head into week’s end, for potential quick strike trading opportunities on a dip-and-rip.

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.
