Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

Options Review

Bed Bath & Beyond, Inc. BBBY – Yesterday morning’s premarket report contained an options idea for Bed Bath & Beyond following the company’s quarterly earnings report, the BBBY Weekly $13 & $13.50 Calls, and those plays both turned in fantastic intraday performances.

Regardless of which strike point was chosen, traders could have secured multi-bag profits on the day. The $13 Calls traded up from a low of .30 to a high of 1.30, for an increase of 333%, while the $13.50′s also crushed it with a huge 431% rip from .16-.85!

Constellation Brands Inc. STZ -Just as Constellation stock got crushed to new lows in the premarket on Wednesday, we formulated a couple of longer-term options ideas, and wanted to provide updates on the activity there as well.

We were banking on STZ reversing off of those lows and beginning a recovery, and so far, it’s going quite well. Our targets were the  the STZ 02/01 $150-157.50 Calls and the 04/18 $160-170 Calls, and all seven sets of contracts in those ranges have been good for significant gain opportunities. These remain in play, and will remain on our watchlist going forward.

02/01 $150-157.50 Calls
$150 Calls – Range: 8.80-11.50 – Max Gain: 31%
$152.50 Calls – Range: 3.80-6.70 – Max Gain: 76%
$155 Calls – Range: 2.90-8.00 – Max Gain: 176%
$157.50 Calls – Range: 3.00-6.65 – Max Gain: 122%

China SXT Pharma Inc SXTC

To wrap things up we wanted to go over the call we made on Monday morning in SXTC, which at the time had registered a low of 5.684. After steadily ramping up all week, yesterday the stock reached a new high of 23.35. That worked out to an incredible four-day swing of 311%

Cheers to anyone who caught this mover in Monday morning’s premarket report. It adds to an already impressive start for us here in 2019.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Hot Options Calls

Roku, Inc. ROKU

We signaled a range of ROKU calls yesterday morning after having tracked the stock itself to some nice gains in recent weeks. Despite a late pullback, ROKU produced an intraday run sufficient to propel four out of our five sets of highlighted contracts to some really nice single session moves.

With the exception of the 45.50′s which were too far out of the money, all of the targets yielded multi-bag gain opportunities on the day.

$43.50 Calls – Range: .34-.88 – Max Gain: 159%
$44 Calls – Range: .20-.70 – Max Gain: 250%
$44.50 Calls – Range: .23-.50 – Max Gain: 117%
$45 Calls – Range: .16-.48 – Max Gain: 200%

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR – Update

Just a quick update on the PBR Weekly $14.50-15.50 Calls that we signaled and rode to some nice gains earlier this week. We wanted to remind readers that those are still in play, and with PBR gapping up in the premarket once again, we’d expect to see new highs on our tracked contracts which have already produced multi-bag upswings this week.


Constellation Brands Inc. STZ

We are quite familiar with Constellation, with the beverage giant being headquartered in the same city as our home offices. STZ was building some decent momentum off of recent lows, until this morning’s earnings release, where some lackluster figures and guidance for 2019 are getting the stock crushed in the premarket. It’s testing new annual lows, which has us sniffing for a bargain.

We are taking a longer view on this company and signal a couple of sets of extended-term calls for what we expect to be a rebound from current conditions in the weeks and months ahead. We’re going to place the STZ 02/01 $150-157.50 Calls and the 04/18 $160-170 Calls on watch.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EBAY Ready For Reversal?

Ebay, Inc. EBAY – Bottom Play

On our routine morning scan today we noticed that EBAY, on Tuesday, registered a new annual low. The stock is at its lowest share price since April of 2017, and as our readers are well aware, we’re always on the hunt for a good bottom-play.

What we typically do in these scenarios, is signal a range of options calls with a moderate amount of time remaining until expiration. In this case we’re going to designate the EBAY 11/23 $33-35 Calls as our items of interest.

As you can see on the included chart, the relative strength is rising and the MACD has begun to converge toward a bullish cross. Coupled with Tuesday’s annual low and a sizable gap to fill on the order of roughly two dollars, and it makes EBAY an attractive bottom-bounce candidate.


Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ

We also like to look for opportunities on the heels of large companies reporting their earnings by highlighting options with weekly expiration, and that’s wjhat we want to do with STZ this morning.

We’re going to track the STZ Weekly $212.50-220 Calls through today and tomorrow’s sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAP Recap & More

Advance Auto Parts, Inc. AAP

One of yesterday’s two options ideas that we offered up to our readers, AAP’s daily performance was the most pronounced. The machinations of the stock allowed for notable intraday gain opportunities, on the heels of the company’s Q2 earnings call. Those gains were as follows:

$145 Calls – Range: 8.92-14.55 – Max Gain:  62%
$150 Calls – Range: 4.80-9.67 – Max Gain: 40%
$155 Calls – Range: 2.50-5.40 – Max Gain: 51%

We’ve also caught word of a large share repurchase, so despite the fact that AAP is already in blue skies, we’ll continue to monitor these ideas.



The Home Depot, Inc. HD

The other fresh idea from yesterday’s report were the HD Weekly $195 & 197.50 Calls, and those also managed to produce significant chances for profits on the day.

The $195′s traded in a range from .81-2.46, a gain of 204% while the $187.50′s ran from .39-1.28. That was good for intraday gains of 228%



Energen Corp. EGN

Another longer-term set of ideas we recently offered up, the EGN 09/21 $75 & 77.50 Calls, have also begun to produce results. The $75 Calls gone from  1.10-1.95 (+77%), and the $77.50′straded from .90-1.10 (+22%).

While those are merely marginal moves, the stock is gearing up for another bullish session, gapping up significantly here in the premarket. We expect to see the ranges on these calls extended by a significant margin today.


FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS:
Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ 
just purchased an additional $4B stake in Canopy Growth Corp. CGC,putting the beverage manufacturer effectively into the cannabis business. We will signal some calls here in both cases.For STZ, the 09/14 $220 & 222.50 Calls, and for the Canopy chain- the CGC 09/21 $30-40 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LULU Recap & More

Lululemon Athletica Inc. LULU – Update

We signaled a range of calls in the LULU options chain in the wake of the company’s earnings beat yesterday morning, and we were met with some fantastic opportunities at huge single-session gains.

Every one of the five sets of contracts, the LULU Weekly $83-85 Calls, produced a shot at double-bag gains on the day, which were as follows:

$83 Calls
– Range: 1.60-4.50  – Max Gain: 181%
$83.50 Calls – Range: 1.25-4.15 – Max Gain: 232%
$84 Calls – Range: 1.20-3.80– Max Gain: 217%
$84.50 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.90 – Max Gain: 190%
$85 Calls – Range: .82-3.24 – Max Gain: 295%

With such solid moves in just one day, LULU doesn’t owe us anything, but we’re still going to roll up our potential strike range and monitor the Weekly $85-86 Calls* as we finish out this short trading week.

Fresh Options Idea:
Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ Weekly $222.50-230 Calls*

*Do NOT trade weekly calls on the last day of the week unless you are an expert level trader!


Elev8 Brands, Inc. VATE

As you can see from our commentary on the annotated chart below, we’re interested in the setup of the VATE chart at the moment. The stock just began to consolidate off of a sizable surge that had persisted for most of this month.

We’re going to put it on bottom watch, and look for an eventual rebound in the event it can maintain support at or above the .05-mark.
