Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Recap & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Recap

Our primary focus in Friday morning’s premarket report was the SPY, for which we had signaled and tracked a range of calls the previous day. Our initial targets were the SPY Weekly $270-272 Calls. and Friday we expanded that range to include the SPY Weekly $272.50-274 Calls.

After another bullish session for the SPY on Friday, we’ve got updates to the highs and overall possible gains on our original contracts, as well as the maximum intraday profits that could have been seized with our rolled up strike prices. All in all, we ended up with two incredible sets of one and two-day runners without a single dud in the bunch!

$270 Calls – Range: .85-5.32 – Max Gain: 526%
$270.50 Calls – Range: .70-4.69 – Max Gain: 570%
$271 Calls – Range: .52-4.33 – Max Gain: 733%
$271.50 Calls – Range: .39-3.80 – Max Gain: 874%
$272 Calls – Range: .30-3.31 – Max Gain: 1003%

$272.50 Calls – Range: .60-2.84 – Max Gain: 373%
$273 Calls – Range: .55-2.36 – Max Gain: 329%
$273.50 Calls – Range: .43-1.89 – Max Gain: 339%
$274 Calls – Range: .17-1.42 – Max Gain: 735%


DropCar Inc. DCAR

Catching our eye as a potential bottom-bounceplay this morning is DCAR, which, prior to today, has already begun to come up off of recently registered lows on Friday. As you can see on the included chart, our favorite indicators are clearly pointing up, with a MACD cross underway and a rapidly strengthening RSI.

This morning, a new catalyst has entered into the mix, with the company reporting a new agreement with Jaguar/Land Rover Manhattan. The dealership will use DropCar’s Enterprise Vehicle Assistance & Logistics technology platform to automate the pickup and delivery of customer vehicles for service and maintenance.

Despite gapping up moderately in the premarket, is still a fair bit of unrealized upside potential, so we’ll add DCAR to our radars and keep a close watch over it in coming sessions.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

Fresh for yesterday’s premarket report was an idea we formulated for the SPY after it appeared we were headed for another bullish session, the SPY Weekly $270-272 Calls. When the markets behaved as we suspected they would, that provided us with some really great chances for single-session profits in our target contracts.

The gains were strong across the board, with the following excellent moves being made on the day:

$270 Calls – Range: .85-3.44 – Max Gain: 304%
$270.50 Calls – Range: .70-2.98 – Max Gain: 326%
$271 Calls – Range: .52-2.59 – Max Gain: 398%
$271.50 Calls – Range: .39-2.14 – Max Gain: 449%
$272 Calls – Range: .30-1.78 – Max Gain: 493%

Today, if the bonanza continues, we’ll look to roll up our strike prices to the 272.50-274 Calls today.


Under Armour, Inc. UAA – Final Update

The lows listed represent those from Tuesday, and the highs were all registered yesterday, so the percentage figures given represent a three day overall upswing:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: UAA Update & More

Under Armour, Inc. UAA – Update

We mentioned the possibility of further gains for the calls we signaled in the Under Armour options chain on Tuesday, the UAA Weekly $15.50-16.50 Calls.

The markets pulled a head-fake, and ended up going green, which helped allow the stock to make to more than $18. That created huge opportunities in our highlighted plays, which went quickly from double-baggers on Tuesday, to a triple, a quad, and even an octuple-bagger!

$15.50 Calls – Range: .60-2.50 – Max Gain: 317%
$16 Calls – Range: .34-2.00 – Max Gain: 488%
$16.50 Calls – Range: .16-1.50 – Max Gain: 838%

Payment Data Systems, Inc. PYDS

We are looking at PYDS as a bottom-bouncer with just the kind of chart setup we like. The stock spent nearly all of January and the beginning of February under heavy consolidation down to its lowest PPS since October. In the last couple of weeks it has shown signs of a solid turnaround.

As you can see below, the RSI is coming off of being oversold and presently cruising toward the 50-line,  the MACD is in the midst of a bullish cross, and yesterday saw the testing of the 200DMA. PYDS also has a recent history of rapid runs up the chart, also visible on the included snapshot, so we’ll be keeping a close eye on it in the coming days.

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Update

Even as the markets got crushed yet again yesterday despite it appearing as if the worst of the downturn was over, SNAP still managed to produce gains in our updated options trading targets.

It was in our premarket report yesterday that we were updating readers on the previous idea we had with the SNAP $16-17.50 Calls, which made moves ranging from 335-700% the day prior.

The stock had risen by such a large margin that we rolled up our potential strike prices to the $21-22.50 levels, and we got very nice activity out of half of those calls to keep our success with the SNAP options chain rolling.

The $21 Calls ran from .04-.32, for a fantastic 700% rip, while the 21.50′s made a 400% from .03-.15.

Fresh Options Idea:

Provided the SPY holds above 259.50 we’ll be interested in the SPY Weekly $260.50-262 Calls*

LendingClub Corp. LC

With turmoil in the markets persisting, this is a time when we want to stick to our technicals, and look for stocks that are currently boasting the type of chart setups we routinely scan for, and LC currently matches the profile.

The stock has come down to double-bottom with a gap to fill to the upside, as you can see on the included snapshot. We feel that over the next few weeks, LC could be in line for a solid recovery.

In addition to the stock itself, we’re going to radar a pair of options contracts to track over a more extended period of time, with the LC 03/16 $3.50 & $4 Calls.


Seattle Genetics, Inc. SGEN – Form-4 Alert

While we’re on the subject of bottom-plays, we’ve got SGEN hitting our scanner this morning. We’ll include a chart snapshot of this one as well, so you can see what we find so attractive about it. We’ve got a triple-bottom formation happening with the stock coming down to he $50-range, and a recent track record of the type of volatility we’re after.

To sweeten the pot, a major Form-4 buy came in the last week at $52, to the tune of $200M (View EDGAR Filing) in addition to a multi-program immuno-oncology collaboration with Pieris Pharmaceuticals announced this morning.

We’re going to track the SGEN 03-16 $50 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY)

After the previous two sessions of backsliding for the markets at large, today we could be in line to see a reversal, especially after a high impact jobs report which exceeded expectations, as the private sector added 234K jobs in January when 190K was the expected figure.

We’re going to focus on the SPY as we often do when we’re looking for a market analog, and signal some contracts for observation; the SPY Weekly $282-284 Calls.



The Boeing Co. BA

We also want to give our attention to Boeing this morning in the wake of a very positive earnings report. In addition to a beat on profits, the company boosted its 2018, including ratcheting up production of Jetliners by 7%.

As a result the stock soared in premarket trading, past previous resistance and into blue skies. We’ll look for a classic dip-and-rip scenario and turn our attention to the BA Weekly $352.50-360 Calls.
