Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Recap

SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY

As we close out another solid week of stock and options trading, we just wanted to provide one final update on the SPY Calls we made earlier in the week. The markets dipped in the first half of the session yesterday, but recovered throughout the rest of the day.

Our idea from our premarket report on Wednesday morning of the SPY Weekly $296-297 Calls all produced double-bag intraday opportunities, and the two sets that we rolled up to include on our watchlist, the $297.50 and $298 Calls, kicked in multi-bag performances of their own.

$296 Calls – Range: .99-2.16 – Max Gain: 118%
$296.50 Calls – Range: .74-1.76 – Max Gain: 138%
$297 Calls – Range: .55-1.39 – Max Gain: 153%

$297.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.05 – Max Gain: 163%
$298 Calls – Range: .27-.77 – Max Gain: 185%

Just as there was yesterday, there may be another dip and rip chance for opportunistic traders to seize upon, so we’ll leave these plays on our radar as we finish out the week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ARDX Recap, Options Ideas

Ardelyx, Inc. ARDX

We selected ARDX yesterday morning for inclusion in our daily extended watchlist, and to be perfectly honest, our timing couldn’t have been much better. The stock exploded out of the gate, and despite a down day for the markets at large, ARDX bucked the trend with its biggest single session move since 2017.

The stock managed an intraday range of 3.77-5.95 which works out to a daily gain of 58% The stock ended the session with a bullish close 5.82, losing very little of its gained ground  That puts it in the class of possible momentum mover, so we’ll certainly continue to keep our eyes peeled for further gain opportunities.


PVH Corp. PVH

Following an earnings beat last week for the owner of the once extremely popular Tommy Hilfiger clothing brand, PVH has been making attempts to come up off of its bottom for a few sessions. Today, we’ve spotted a $10M Form-4 buy from the CEO, and coupled with the positioning of the chart, we would like to signal an options idea for the chain.

Taking all of the current circumstances into account, we are going to be tracking the PVH 09/20 $75-85 Calls, in the days and weeks to come.


Bonus Idea:
SPY Weekly 292-293.50 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SRPT Bottom-Watch

Ulta Beauty, Inc. ULTA

Before we broke for the holiday weekend on Friday, we designated a last minute bearish options idea for ULTA in our premarket report, and thanks to a lackluster day for stocks in general as the markets fell, we saw some nice gains out of those plays, which were the ULTA Weekly $265-260 Puts..

The company also had reported and missed on earnings, receiving multiple analyst downgrades to add fuel to the fire. All of those elements converged to make for the following possible gains for anyone who had caught our alert in the morning.

The $265 Puts traded up from a low of 12.30 and more than doubled as they ran to 26.46 for an intraday move of 115%  The $260’s posted an even bigger gain, running form 7.40-19.90, which worked out to a total possible profit of 169%


Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. SRPT 

We want to take a look at SRPT as we kick off this short trading week, and form an extended term idea. The stock is heavily oversold at present time as it searches out a bottom, and we would like to be ready and waiting when what we feel is an imminent recovery begins.

There is also a massive topside gap on the SRPT chart that could give the stock even more breathing room when it finally makes its reversal and begins to trend up again. We are going to give ourselves plenty of time on this one, signaling the SRPT 10/04 $91.50-94 Calls to watch in coming weeks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings and Bottom Plays

Acuity Brands, inc. AYI – Options Idea

After a lackluster Q3 report, AYI took a gut punch yesterday, but began to recover before the day was through, and appears to want to continue to course-correct today.

We are going to radar the AYI 07/19 $125-130 Calls. Even if this holiday shortened week comes to a predictably quiet close and doesn’t provide a ton of activity, we’ll still have plenty of time to get results before the 19th.


comScore, Inc. SCOR 

We’ve found what appears to be a prime bottom-watch candidate in SCOR. The stock is egregiously oversold at the present time, and has managed a couple of positive sessions this week.

The volatility potential on this stock is high. It’s not unreasonable to think that it could return to the $10 level or better over a period of several weeks or perhaps even months. We’ll designate this as a longer-term recovery play.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates

MGM Resorts International Inc. MGM

On Monday morning, we issued a Form-4 alert on MGM after witnessing more than $75M in insider buying at a bottom pour in over the course of the previous three sessions.

We can usually have a fairly high rate of confidence that a stock in this situation will produce a rebound, and so far that’s just what we’ve seen. We signaled the MGM 08/16 $28-30 Calls for tracking, and so far, we’ve seen some pretty nice moves.

$28 Calls – Range: 1.09-1.80 – Max Gain: 65%
$29 Calls – Range: .96-1.32 – Max Gain: 38%
$30 Calls – Range: .68-.95 – Max Gain: 40%

There is plenty of time to continue to look after this idea, which could certainly produce further gains from this point forward.

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR

We also added a pair of options contracts to watch in the HEAR chain last Thursday, and while we also have plenty of time to realize added gains in this case as well, the early performance out of these has been noteworthy, especially the $15’s which have already recorded a multi-bag move.

HEAR 10/18 $12.50-15 Calls.
$12.50 Calls – Range: .60-.90 – Max Gain: 50%
$15 Calls – Range: .20-.50 – Max Gain: 150%

FRESH OPTIONS IDEA: 
Dave & Busters Entertainment Inc. PLAY  07/26 $40-45 Calls 


Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. OCUL – Recap

We also wanted to quickly mention the performance of OCUL since we alerted on the stock last month. It has produced quite a dip and rip since that time, touching a low of 2.38 before running as high as 4.08. That marks a total possible gain of 71% in a span of just over three weeks.
