Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Success Continues

OPTIONS REVIEW

First thing’s first today, we’re going to highlight the total possible gains which have resulted from options ideas we’ve posted in our morning reports over the past three trading days.

On Friday morning, we slated the GlaxoSmithKline plc GSK 05/17 $41 Calls for observation, and have seen a very solid increase since then. The $41 Calls were trading as low as .32 the morning of our alert, and yesterday, reached a high of .65. That marks a three-day swing of 103% The company posted an earnings beat this morning, so we’ll continue to monitor for any further potential progress here.

Yesterday morning, we flagged the Seagate Technology plc STX Weekly $46.50-47.50 Calls, and were met with instant good fortune with those ideas. The single-session gains on this set of ideas was excellent:

$47 Calls – Range: .75-1.65 – Max Gain: 120%
$47.50 Calls – Range: .75-1.35 – Max Gain: 80%

AmpliTech Group, Inc. AMPGWe also wanted to track back to AMPG, which we profiled at the beginning of last month (>>View Report). The company recently added an independent director, with a wealth of related experience, and we feel the company has made an excellent choice.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DMPI Recap & More

Del Mar Pharmaceuticals, Inc . DMPI

We wanted to swing back around to recap the solid performance of DMPI since we tagged it the day after the Christmas break a couple of weeks back.

It was just a couple sessions later that the stock would find support at .96, and begin a pretty substantial run up the chart. It was helped along by the last six consecutive sessions registering higher base levels of support as the stock has crept all the way up to a high of 1.75, recorded on Friday.

That worked out to a move of 82% in less than two trading weeks, while volume over the same period has been heightened. The high coincided with the current 200DMA, so we’ll look for DMPI to possibly crack that 1.75 mark and head for blue skies.



Kohls Corp KSS

We want to include an options idea for Kohls as we kick off the first full trading week of 2018, on the heels of a solid earnings report.

The company posted strong sales for the holiday season, while giving a significant boost to full year guidance. Shares jumped accordingly in premarket trading, and we are going to be waiting with some targeted weekly contracts to coincide with the activity. We’re going to signal and track the KSS Weekly $58-60 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recap & More

Seagate Technologies plc. STX – Options Recap

Although it would end up reversing and heading lower as the day progressed, STX did ride the bullish wave off of its healthy earnings beat for a solid upswing inside the first hour of trading yesterday.

That did facilitate a window of opportunity on the options contracts we were tracking, the STX Weekly $41-43.50 Calls. Traders who were quick on the draw yesterday morning could have taken away a piece of the following moves:

$41 Calls – Range: 1.78-5.28 – Max Gain: 196%
$41.50 Calls – Range: 2.00-4.48 – Max Gain: 124%
$42 Calls – Range: 1.99-4.50 – Max Gain: 126%
$42.50 Calls – Range: 2.11-3.45 – Max Gain: 63%
$43 Calls – Range:  .86-3.00 – Max Gain: 249%
$43.50 Calls – Range: .78-2.77 – Max Gain: 255%

We did signal our hunch that there would be a reversal in-session and a corresponding idea for the Weekly $46 Puts in our live traders chat, and those ended up doing quite well also, subsequently running from .60-3.29 (+448%) as STX continued to consolidate into the close.

It’s another example of why we urge any of our readers that want to get in on our daily traders chats to get a Skype contact request over to username ‘stocksumo’. That’s all it takes, and you can stay up to the minute on changing ideas throughout the day, and submit some of your own!


Avinger, Inc. AVGR

The current situation with the AVGR chart has caught our eye this midweek as the stock reversed course this week after a steep and rapid decline. We’re seeing increased activity in the premarket and AVGR has pushed its way up regaining much of the ground it has recently lost.

Currently trading around the 3.00 mark, a return to its recent swing high from roughly a month ago would mean gains of up to 50% so we’ll be monitoring AVGR over coming sessions for a possible continuation of the recovery that is presently in effect.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Updates & More

FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS

Seagate Technologies plc. STX -We’re interested in the situation with STX this morning after the company impressed with its post-market earnings report yesterday. Expectations were exceeded for revenues and earnings-per-share, while a bullish outlook for the remainder of 2017 was provided.

Our first inclination here would be to place the STX Weekly $41-43.50 Calls on watch for the rest of the week in an attempt to ride the wave of enthusiasm for the company’s impressive quarterly figures.

_____

General Electric Co. GE – GE showed signed of a possible reversal yesterday as it began to rebound off of the precipitous decline effected by Friday’s underwhelming earnings report.

The stock perhaps over-corrected with its PPS loss of more than a dollar between Friday and Monday, and we’re interested in potentially hitching a ride with some extended-term options calls.  Provided the stock doesn’t fall further than the $30-mark on any pullbacks, we’ll be tracking the GE 03/03 $30-31.50 Calls.


Heron Therapeutics, Inc. HRTX – Form-4 Alert

We always glance at the chart of a play for which there are insider buys of a significant nature, and that’s just how we’d classify the Form-4 that came in on HRTX late last week.

Director Kevin Tang executed an order for nearly $30M worth of HRTX stock at the stock’s 52-week low of 12.20, per the filing (>>View Here).

We’ll be very interested to see if that indeed was the bottom on this play, which has a relatively recent track record of making volatile swings to more than $20.


Added Note: Puration, Inc. PURA

We also want to provide a quick update as to the progress of PURA, which we initially signaled on Thursday the 12th, subsequently witnessing a low of .03.

Yesterday, despite tapering back slightly into the close, the stock did achieve new highs for us, reaching as much as .094 during the session, a new 52-week high. It extended our observed range on the play in just a few week’s time to an impressive 213%
