Big Winners from Last Week
-
Due to the sheer number of winning plays to report on from Friday’s newsletter, we will give only a brief summary including the name of the company, the ideas we submitted, and the total possible gains they had provided by the end of the week.

Nearly everything we’ve had our hands in recently has made some type of the move to the upside, continuing a very promising trend that we have established in the first months of 2019.

AstraZeneca plc AZN -We cited some contracts here earlier in the week (Weekly $39-39.50 Calls), as well as updated that idea on Friday with a couple of new targets at higher strike prices (Weekly $40-40.50 Calls). All contracts involved saw significant moves/new highs.

$39 Calls – Range: .55-1.39 – Max Gain: 153%
$39.50 Calls – Range: .19-1.35 – Max Gain: 611%

Electronic Arts, Inc. EA - We had the EA Weekly $107-109 Calls in Friday’s report as a fresh idea, and all three of those plays could have worked out nicely for traders. We saw double bag gain opportunities across the board in this case.$107 Calls – Range: .78-1.60 – Max Gain: 102%

$108 Calls – Range: .50-1.13 – Max Gain: 126%

Canopy Growth Corp. CGC – We’ve been watching Canopy since well before the stock uplisted to the NYSE from the OTC, and while what was supposed to be a Canadian cannabis boom has been much more subdued than anticipated, we still like to keep tabs on this one and use its activity to our advantage wherever possible. On Friday we targeted the CGC Weekly $46.50-48 Calls and were met with multi-bag intraday gains there as well.
$39.50 Calls – Range: .83-2.01 – Max Gain: 142%
$40 Calls – Range: .62-1.60 – Max Gain: 158%

$274.50 Calls – Range: .85-2.92 – Max Gain: 244%

Walmart, Inc. WMT – Fresh Options Idea
Today we want to keep things rolling with a new idea to kick the week off on, and that is going to be WMT Weekly $101-104 Calls. The stock broke a double-top area of resistance on Friday, and this morning, an across-the-board earnings beat should help create some nice activity in our designated range.

OPTIONS UPDATES

Activision Blizzard. Inc. ATVI – To follow up with our idea from Wednesday morning in our premarket report, the ATVI Weekly $42-43.50 Calls, we wanted to provide one more update after another big move from the stock pushed our highlighted targets to new highs yesterday, and registered a really impressive two-day swing.

The following moves are the overall increases from the lows we observed on Wednesday: 

$42 Calls - 1.32-4.50 (+241%)
$42.50 Calls - .98-4.00 (+308%)
$43 Calls - .70-3.50 (+400%)
$43.50 Calls -  .44-3.05 (+593%)

Today, we are going to turn our attention to a slightly higher strike area, the ATVI Weekly $44.50-46 Calls*.

AstraZeneca plc AZN – The AZN Weekly $38-39.50 Calls  were on our radar yesterday morning as our fresh options idea, and despite the lower end of that range being pushed too far in the money, we still saw some solid moves out of the $39′s and $39.50′s.

The $39′s ran from .55-.90 for a gain of 64%, while the $39.50′s cruised from a low of .19 to hit .55; a big-time intraday pop of 189%  We want to continue to watching this chain as well, with the 39.50′s, and also rolling up to include the $40 and $40.50′s*.

Invacare Corp. IVC – Recap

Also appearing in yesterday’s report, was IVC, which we tagged in our extended watchlist. The stock made a good move on the day, which warrants further observation in coming sessions.

From a low of 7.21 IVC reached 9.54, which was good for an intraday rise of 32% which made it the second highest gainer on the NASDAQ for Thursday. We’ll continue to monitor this one as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ATVI Options & More

Activision Blizzard. Inc. ATVI

We focused on stocks quite a bit earlier on in the week, so this morning we wanted to take the opportunity to put another potential options play into the mix. We’re constantly looking for company’s that have just reported earnings, which gives us the potential for the volatility that we want.

In the case of ATVI, while its quarterly figures were lacking, the tock was at a bottom, and appears to want to go green today. We will put the ATVI Weekly $42-43.50 Calls on watch this morning, and monitor for the remainder of the week for a possible rebound off of what was its new 52-week low, registered on Monday.



SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY)

Our regular readers are well aware of our fondness for the SPY ETF. We have taken advantage of it on many occasions. A quick peek into our archives reveals that today is the 114th time we’ve mentioned the SPY in our newsletters. It’s a well that we continue to draw from, with no indications of that ever changing.

Today, after such a big move yesterday wherein the SPY broke its 200DMA, we want to look for  continuation of the bullish behavior we’re observing. We will designate the SPY Weekly $274.50-275.50 Calls as ones to watch as we head through this midweek.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Playing the SPY

Friday Options Review

Coty, Inc. COTY- Among our fresh options ideas in Friday morning’s report was a range of contracts in the COTY chain, and from that, came the opportunity for ourselves and our readers to log some very impressive daily profits.

Our targets were the Coty, Inv. COTY Weekly $8-9 Calls, and all three of those contract sets produced multi-bag intraday days for us.

$8 Calls – Range: .56-1.35 – Max Gain: 141%
$8.50 Calls – Range: .22-.83 – Max Gain: 277%
$9 Calls – Range: .05-.34 – Max Gain: 580%
_____

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $270.50-269 Puts

We were also entertaining a range of Puts in the SPY chain, as it appeared the markets wanted to begin the session in bearish fashion. That certainly proved to be the case, as the first half of the session saw a significant backslide prior to a late afternoon recovery to finish the day flat.

That activity allowed for a good showing from three of the four contracts in our highlighted range, the SPY Weekly $270.50-269 Puts. While the potential windfalls weren’t as extreme as the aforementioned play, they still each recorded a multi-bag move on the day.

$270 Calls
 – Range: 1.00-2.20 – Max Gain: 120%
$269.50 Calls – Range: .71-1.70 – Max Gain: 139%
$269 Calls – Range: .49-1.35 – Max Gain: 176%

Fresh Idea:
Now that we’re seeing a bit of a bounceback which figures to lead to a higher open this morning, we’ll go ahead and shift our early focus today on the SPY 02/11 $271-272 Calls. These expire today, and therefore must be treated like a weekly option on a Friday. It’s a risky proposition. Expert level traders only!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options 5-Pack

GlaxoSmithKline plc GSK – Final Recap

Wednesday morning, we formulated an idea for the GSK options chain, which we updated our reader on just yesterday. But after a second consecutive solid session, we did observe some new highs in all three of our designated contracts, which were the GSK Weekly $39.50-40.50 Calls.

The updated two-day swing ranges on each of those ideas:

$39.50 Calls – Range: .65-1.40 – Max Gain: 115%
$40 Calls – Range: .15-1.00 – Max Gain: 566%
$40.50 Calls – Range: .10-.60 – Max Gain: 500%

GSK just continues the trend of fantastic options calls we’ve made in 2019 so far. While we don’t have exact figures worked out, it would seem at least 80-90% of the options ideas we’ve formulated have produced multi-bag gain opportunities, and we invite our readers to go through our newsletter feed at BlueHorseshoeStocks.com and see for yourself!
