Blue Horseshoe Stock: INSE Update & More

Inspired Entertainment Inc. INSE – Update

Yesterday morning, we placed INSE on recovery watch in the wake of its quarterly reporting. We cited the attractive bottom-bounce that was in effect as the markets had tanked the previous day and INSE managed to buck that trend.

Our instincts about this play turned out to be very good, with the stock piling on yet another very solid trading session. The stock’s low came in right at the opening price of 3.86 and it never looked back. INSE ran up to 5.23, representing a respectable single-session rise of 35%

It also closed just three cents lower than the high of day, setting us up to see if the stock can continue to build upon the momentum it has thus far exhibited.


DSW, Inc. DSW

We’d also like to formulate a fresh options idea for the DSW chain, after noticing an attractive chart setup. The stock has been trading at its lowest PPS since May, which when coupled with solid earnings and guidance in this morning’s quarterly report, could make for just the right conditions to strike on some options trades.

We’re going to signal interest in the DSW 12/21 $22.50 & $25 Calls, and keep those on watch throughout the rest of the week and into the next.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APHA, MDCA & More

Aphria, Inc. APHA

Yesterday morning in our premarket report, we said that the unusually high short interest in APHA was one of the factors playing into our decision to designate it as a bottom-watch play. The rebound we were looking for came instantaneously for us with APHA heating up, and the short squeeze was on.

From a low of 3.75, the stock cruised on up to a high of 5.59 for a daily burst amounting to 49% on considerable volume. We’ll be looking for APHA to continue to make up some of the ground it has lost over the past month.



MDC Partners, Inc. MDCA

Another stock we included as a bottom play yesterday, MDCA also experienced a solid performance on the day. It traded from a low of 2.57 on up to 3.29, for a moderate but respectable 28% gain.

It also factored in as the NASDAQ’s fourth largest gainer of the session. The run came to an end right around an area of previous resistance, so we’ll look for it to break that top in the sessions ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Quick Strike Ideas

India Globalization Capital, Inc. IGCC

First up this morning is a recap of IGCC following its inclusion in our premarket extended watchlist yesterday. The stock didn’t blow its lid, but it did continue the solid run of intraday performances off of its lows from earlier this week which were precipitated by the company’s recent delisting from the NASDAQ down to the OTC Markets.

The stock traded in a range from 1.22-1.84 before tapering back off, which stood as an intraday gain of 51% We’re going to look for IGCC to continue to fill the remaining gap on the chart. As you can see on the included snapshot, the MACD is also beginning to converge toward a bullish cross.




Fresh Options Ideas*:

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA - After beating on earnings and missing on revenues, BABA surged this morning, making it our prime bullish target among companies that reported their quarterly earnings today. We’re going to focus on the BABA Weekly 152.50-160 Calls*.
_____

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – We’ve had some good luck with the SPY this week, which isn’t all that surprising when considering the fact that we have a long documented history of success with this fund. We’re so deep in the money with our previously targeted calls, that we’re going to go ahead and roll up our potential strike prices to the SPY Weekly $274.50-276 Calls* as we close out the week.
_____

Weight Watchers International, Inc. WTW – Strangely enough, despite also beating on earnings and missing on revs like the aforementioned play, WTW took a gut punch and appears on track for a bearish session. We’re going to be tracking the WTW Weekly $58.50-56.50 Puts* as a result.

Bonus Idea: AMD Weekly $20-21 Calls*
