Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recaps

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY)

On Friday morning, we set out to take advantage of the bullish premarket sentiment by tracking a set of options in the SPY chain, as we are well-accustomed to doing.

Our targets were the Weekly $287-288 Calls and with the help of a solid run for the markets at large, our ideas bore fruit. All three, in fact, produced highly respectable chances for intraday profits.

$287 Calls – Range: .92-1.70 – Max Gain: 85%
$287.50 Calls – Range: .62-1.18 – Max Gain: 90%
$288 Calls – Range: .29-.80 – Max Gain: 176%


Centene Corp. CNC

Toward the end of last month, we produced an idea for the CNC 09/20 $50 & $55 Calls, and we also wanted to update our readers on the progress of those contracts since that time.

The $50 Calls have thus far risen from 1.80-8.53, an increase of 374% The $55 Calls obliterated those figures, with a massive run from .31-6.08, for total possible gains of 1,861%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas

The Greenbrier Companies, Inc. GBX

The first thing that jumped out to us on this morning’s routine market scan was GBX. The only company on the earnings calendar with a market cap of more than a billion dollars, it’s also boasting an attractive bottom setup on the chart.

We’re going to tag the GBX 04/18 $30-35 Calls for observation, which gives us a couple of weeks to see more a rebound from the stock, which just began to rise off of in recent;y established 52-lows.

FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS
SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $287-288 Calls 
Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ Weekly $187.50 Calls


InspireMD, Inc. NSPR

We also will be placing another recently struggling stock in NSPR on bottom watch this morning. With it just having registered new 52-week lows yesterday, it would appear there may be slightly further to fall before a rebound is imminent, if we look at the indicators, but we’ll start tracking it now.

The stock was trading at twice this amount barely over a month ago, so the potential for rapidly recovery is also there.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MIK Options & More

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Recap

We went bullish on the SPY in our premarket report yesterday, and thanks to two distinct intraday pushes for the markets, there were opportunities across the board for our highlighted contracts throughout the session.

Those targets were the daily SPY 03/18 $281-282 Calls, and we saw significant moves from all three. The $281.50 Calls traded in a range from .34-1.06 for an overall upswing of 212% while the $282′s traded up from .15 to .58, a gain of 287% (We mistakenly lost exact data for the $281 calls, but the gain opportunities were very similar to those of the other two strike points.) 


The Michaels Companies, Inc. MIK

We also want to signal a set of contracts on MIK, which was the one listing on this morning’s earnings calendar that jumped out to us the most. Michaels posted an earnings beat, but also happens to be trading near its annual lows.

We’re going to approach this like we would any other play with bottom-bouncer written all over it, by signaling some longer-term calls to give ourselves some extra time to see the recovery play out. We’re going to radar the MIK 04/18 $12.50 Calls and monitor their activity in the days and weeks ahead.
