Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL, ANET & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Idea

At the end of last week, we signaled some calls in AAPL, one of which ran over 3500% on Friday. Following the company’s earnings beat this week, we’ve got another set of options ideas to track as AAPL has streaked to new annual highs.

With its premarket peak coming in at the $175-range, we’re going to want to monitor the AAPL Weekly $170-175 Calls* for potential daytrades.

In addition to a healthy earnings beat, Apple the iPhoneX is going on sale. These are just the types of conditions that could allow it to continue to streak into blue skies.

*Please note that trading weekly options on a Friday is incredibly risky, and should only ever be attempted by expert traders with disposable funds. If that doesn’t describe you, stay away!  

Arista Networks, Inc. ANET

We would also like to look at ANET this morning, which took a gut punch during yesterday’s session. The sharp decline cause the PPS to fall below the channel of a continuous uptrend that had, until yesterday had persisted for most of the past year.

On the chance that it was just a momentary setback, we’re going to highlight some options contracts here as well that could work quite nicely if ANET can recover. We’ll have our eye on the ANET 11/17 $195-210 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recap, New Ideas

Time Warner, Inc. TWX
– Options Update

Despite already having provided us with multi-bag gain chances in previous sessions, the  TWX Weekly $77-79 Calls that we signaled on Wednesday, once again made stellar runs on Friday. The figures even surpassed the prior moves we’d witnessed.

The single-session profits that were available were as follows:

$77 Calls
– Range:  .91-2.61 – Max Gain: 187%
$77.50 Calls – Range:  .42-1.59 – Max Gain: 279%
$78 Calls – Range: .26-1.20 – Max Gain: 362%
$78.50 Calls – Range: .10-.75 – Max Gain: 650%
$79 Calls – Range: .03-.29 – Max Gain: 867%

Box Ships, Inc. TEUFF

TEUFF is another play that we brought into the mix in our premarket report on Wednesday, and the stock responded with three straight sessions of setting new highs.

Friday saw the stock trading in a range from a low of .032 to the new high of .0438, representing an intraday rip of 37% From our observed low of TEUFF at .018 on Wednesday following our initial alert, that works out to a three-session upswing of 143%

That makes the sixth straight session of higher highs and higher lows for TEUFF, and as we stated on Friday morning, we’ll remain interested for as long as that pattern is maintained.

Terra Tech Corp. TRTC

We’ve tracked TRTC quite a bit over the years as one of our favorite plays in the cannabis sector. Having appeared in our articles over 30 times since 2012, TRTC started appearing in our reports again this year in January, April and May as we tracked it over a monumental 4-month-long run from .115 (01/13) to nearly .75; a mind numbing move approaching 550%

More recently, on August 1st we re-alerted TRTC, and  in the past week its begun another nice move up from a low of .389 to Friday’s high of .4875; a notable 25% move. If TRTC can hold support off of the 50DMA (.34) on any pullbacks, it will continue to hold our interest going forward.

QVC Group QVCA – Options Idea

We’re always on the lookout to take advantage of a stock that’s seen a rapid decrease in PPS, and QVCA fits that bill perfectly. On the heels of a mixed earnings release, as well as some shaky investor sentiment regarding the retail space, QVCA fell off of a cliff on Friday, setting a new annual low.

As a result, we’re going to track a couple of sets of longer-term ideas to leverage an eventual recovery for the stock to our advantage. We’ll be monitoring a ranges of contracts with differing expiration dates to give ourselves the nbest chance to seek out a winner. Our targets are going to be the QVCA 09/16 and 10/21 $21-23 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TEUFF Recap, Options & More

Box Ships, Inc. TEUFF

For the second day in a row yesterday, TEUFF provided us a chance at appreciable intraday gains. On Wednesday, following its inclusion in our premarket report, the stock traded in a solid range from a low of .018 to .0276 for a 53% jump that day.

The momentum continued, spilling over into yesterday dipping slightly in the morning to .0246 before ripping its way up to .035. That worked out to an intraday move of 42%, and an total increase of 94% over our observed low from Wednesday morning.

It marked the fifth consecutive session that TEUFF has posted higher highs and higher lows, and we’ll stay hot on its trail for as long as it continues to do so.

Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. OCUL

We tagged OCUL for observation yesterday as well, and it made a modest but notable move itself, from a low of 5.09 to 5.95; a 17% jump. Perhaps the biggest story with this play is the massive amount of buying that flowed into the stock in a single day. At 7M shares traded, it fell just a tad shy of its all-time single-session volume record (02/15/16, 7.2M).

With that kind of accumulation in effect, we’ll want to leave a slot on our radars open for OCUL in sessions to come.

Viper Energy Partners VNOM

We’re noticing a potential opportunity with VNOM this morning, a stock that is showing some signs of life after what has been a rough couple of weeks. We’re also taking notice of a huge Form-4 buy that came in earlier in the week, to the tune of $31M at an execution price of 15.60.

Yesterday the stock broke the 200DMA in a bullish manner, and it appears to be filling the gap on the chart left by the recent  backslide. We’re going to track this play for the possibility of an extended recovery, and also tag the VNOM 09/16 $15 and 17.50 Calls for observation.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ASTI, TEUFF Reviews & More

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. ASTI

We’ve been quite familiar with ASTI in the past, and circled back around to it yesterday morning, in time to catch what was ultimately one heck of a solid session.

We had noticed it recently producing some bottom-bounce action, along with a huge increase in volume and they proved to be huge indicators of a continued surge. The stock traded in a range from .051-.0779, for a healthy 53% jump, and maintained well over half of that gain into the close at .074.

We’ll definitely want to see ASTI take a run at its previous swing highs of .085 and .119, followed by the 50DMA of .13, as pointed out in the chart snapshot here:

Time Warner, Inc. TWX – Options Update

We brought an options trading idea to the table yesterday morning in the wake of an earnings beat for Time Warner, the TWX Weekly $77-79 Calls, and every set of contracts in the range performed really well, with each one yielding a multi-bag gain opportunity on the day.

$77 Calls – Range: .76-2.06 – Max Gain: 171%
$77.50 Calls – Range: .59-1.57 – Max Gain: 166%
$78 Calls – Range: .37-1.37 – Max Gain: 270%
$78.50 Calls – Range: .20-.65 – Max Gain: 225%
$79 Calls – Range: .09-.69 – Max Gain: 422%

With news hitting in the post-market yesterday that TWX will be taking up a 10% stake in Hulu, it will be interesting to see how the activity unfolds from here.

Box Ships, Inc. TEUFF

Another inclusion in yesterday’s premarket report was TEUFF, which, similar to ASTI, was in the midst of a spike in upward momentum off of a recent bottom. We were banking on seeing some of that carry over into yesterday’s session, and that’s just what happened.

TEUFF traded up from a low of .018 and hit .0276; another 53% intraday gainer for what was a very productive day all around.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AGTK Recap, Options & More

Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK

The standout runner from yesterday morning’s premarket report ended up being AGTK. We noticed it had been ramping up in PPS over the preceding two sessions, and figured it was worth tracking. We were right on in our assumption, as the stock traded in a respectable daily range, running into the close with strength.

AGTK saw an early low of .00168 before running to a high of .0025, representing a single-session spike of 49% The move came on stronger-than-average volume, and marked the third straight session of higher highs and higher lows.

We’ll remain interested in tracking the activity in AGTK provided it can hold support at or above .002; next key areas of resistance are at the 50 and 200DMA’s at .0029 and .0031, respectively.

Options Ideas:

We’ve got a pair of options chains to watch as well, for the following ideas:

Ford Motor Co. F – Our idea concerning Ford is based more off of technical factors of the current chart. As you can see, there are a number of indicators pointing to the possibility of a forthcoming recovery. We want to select a set of contracts with an extended expiration to give our idea time to manifest; the F 09/16 $12.75 Calls. The stock is searching for a bottom, and we’ll need to wait until just the right moment when it begins to rebound and possibly make a run at filling the gap.


Time Warner, Inc. TWX – The other plays we’re going to be keeping an eye on are short term, weekly expiration ideas: TWX Weekly $77-79 Calls.

Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. OMEX

Lastly, we want to put another new play on watch, based purely off of the look of the chart. As you can see, OMEX is in the process of filling a major gap on its chart from this spring, and it just bulled through its 200DMA yesterday. The RSI has also cracked into the power zone, so we’ll definitely be observing the near-term activity on this play.
