Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JACK Update & More

Jack in the Box, Inc. JACK – Update

As a fresh options trading idea on Friday morning, we submitted the Jack 07/20 $80-90 Calls for observation after noticing the company’s solid earnings report and premarket gap-up. Although we passed over the weeklies for the July 20th calls for a bit more of an extended idea, it took no time at all for those contracts to see significant appreciation.

We’re pleased to say that each of the three selected targets produced respectable single-session moves, and will remain on our radar moving forward. Those potential gains were as follows: ,

$80 Calls – Range: 3.70-5.78 – Max Gain: 56%
$85 Calls – Range: 1.42-2.58 – Max Gain: 82%
$90 Calls – Range: .50-.80 – Max Gain: 60%


aTyr Pharma, Inc. LIFE

We noticed that LIFE woke from a slumber late last week, and began to trend off of its annual lows. We’re going to put it on the radar as a potential recovery play. As you can see, the stock was ridiculously oversold heading into last week, following a massive beating from roughly a month ago.

We believe there is a fair chance that the stock could return to the levels from prior to that backslide, which would spell significant gains from the current PPS.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VTVT Recap & More

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

Our report yesterday morning included  a look at the VTVT chart, and establishing our interest in tracking it as a bottom play. Our timing in this really could not have been any better as the stock not only made it biggest single session move of the year, but also traded its highest volume.

VTVT ran from a low of .79 and reached as high as 1.67, a 53% intraday rip, and ended up closing at 1.19, filling a portion of the large gap which you can plainly see below. Based on the activity we’ve now witnessed, and the still-ripe look of the chart, we’re going to continue to keep a close watch over VTVT.


Van Eck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX)

We also want to begin tracking a pair of options contracts in the GDX chain. Gold has been doing well and looks as if another solid day could be in the cards.

On that event, there should be some nice activity in the GDX Weekly $22.50 & $23 Calls, so we’ll be monitoring for that.



Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. TNDM – Update

It was a week ago today that we were commenting on our coverage of TNDM in 2018. We caught this stock at a low of 2.14 earlier this year, and it has come a long way since then.

This week the stock has traded up to a high of 7.75, marking an increase of 262% since we began tracking it.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PSMT Review & More

Pricesmart, Inc. PSMT

On Friday morning, we selected a pair of contracts in the PSMT options chain, and we want to start off this new trading week by updating our readers on the excellent progress those calls made.

Our targets were the PSMT 04/20 $80 & $85 Calls and some very nice intraday gains were posted on both counts. The $80 Calls made their way from a low of 5.12 up to 10.98 for a move of 114% while The $85′s traded up from  2.50 to 6.70, marking a 168% rip.


NII Holdings, Inc. NIHD

We also want to look back on the recent performance of NIHD. We placed this stock on watch in our report from the morning of February 28th, and after seeing its low the following day, the stock hasn’t looked back since.

From that low, which came in at 1.115 (03/01), NIHD has gradually pressed its way up as high as Friday’s mark of 2.6092, which represents a 134% swing in the course of five trading weeks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TEUM Recap & More

Pareteum Corp. TEUM
-
Just yesterday, we were commenting on the large number of stocks we’ve recently tracked for large gains despite already trading at more than a dollar per share. We’ve been seeing OTC-type gains from NYSE and NASDAQ plays, and TEUM is another good example of this.

The day after our mention of TEUM in our morning report from February 8th, we observed a low of 1.72 in TEUM, and it hasn’t looked back since. Yesterday, the stock reached a new high of 3.59, representing a six-week double-bag swing of 108%


Geron Corp. GERN

GERN, another of our calls to make a solid six week run, added another new high yesterday, just after our morning report in which we outlined its prior performance. The stock had already showed us a move from 2.025-5.00 (+147%).

Yesterday’s trading range took it from a low of 5.08 to a new high of 6.68. That works out to an intraday pop of 31% and increases our total observed range to an impressive 230%



Nike Inc. NKE – Fresh Options Idea

Nike posted a beat on earning sales and revs yesterday post-market, and is up in early trading today, so we’re definitely going to want to put a range of calls on watch as we close out another trading week.

We’ll be tracking the NKE Weekly $66.50-68 Calls, but remember, NEVER attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MULE is Kicking & More

MuleSoft, Inc. MULE

We try to include mentions of all sorts of stocks from nano-caps all the way up to the big boards, and there can be no doubt we’ve found success with plays across the entire spectrum.  Generally, when we catch a stock for a large gain over a short time period, it trades for pennies a share or less. However MULE is yet another example of a higher priced stock that we recently put on our radar, making a series of big jumps in just over a month.

When we initially tagged this play back on February 16th, it was trading as low as 28.51. After a very bullish month was followed up by another big spike this week, MULE has kicked its way all the way up to 42.40, an impressive increase of 49%

The move was catalyzed by yesterday’s announcement that the company would be acquired in full by Salesforce. Generally you don’t get a sustained push from a buyout, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the stock didn’t go much higher, but we’ll keep an eye peeled just in case.


Aytu BioScience, Inc. AYTU

We’re going to place AYTU on watch this morning as a potential bottom bounce play. The stock produced abnormally high volume yesterday along with a marginal spike in PPS.

As you can see on the chart below, AYTU saw a precipitous decline in February, and has been oversold all month long, yet still maintaining support in the low to mid .40′s. Indicators suggest the possibility of a recovery on the horizon, so we”ll go ahead and monitor the activity here in the days ahead.


Fresh Options Idea:

General Mills Inc. GIS – General Mills has been in trouble on the chart for quite some time, and despite it already being at 3-year lows, the stock is continuing to get crushed on the heels of a disappointing earnings report. Accordingly, we’re going to be tracking the GIS 04/20 $50-45 Puts.
