Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Day for Options

Options Recap

Yesterday, our premarket report included two fresh sets of options trading ideas for Under Armour, and Take Two Interactive, and thanks in part to a nice rebound for the markets, we were able to see some really nice gains in our designated plays.

Both of these were companies that had just reported their quarterly earnings, which just reinforces why we continue to make these same kinds of calls over and over again. Post-earnings options trading, while just as risky as any other type of short-term trade, is also just about the most reliable way to find quick-strike opportunities to profit.

Here were the trading ranges and total possible single-session gains that could have been banked off of yesterday’s ideas:

Under Armour Inc. UAA $19-20 Calls
$19 – 2.69-4.20 (+56%)
$19.50 – 2.65-3.82 (+44%)
$20 – 1.75-3.25 (+85%)

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. TTWO $122-125 Calls
$122 – 4.00-5.60 (+40%)
$123 – 2.49-5.70 (+129%)
$124 – 2.50-4.20 (+68%)
$125 – 2.50-4.00 (+60%)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SSLJ Recap, Options & More

SSLJ.com Ltd. SSLJ
-
It’s been just under a couple of weeks since we slated SSLJ as a play to watch for a bottom; it was the Tuesday before lastthat we mentioned we’d have an eye on the declining stock that appeared to be ready to reverse at any time.

Friday we saw that come to pass, and the rebound that accompanied it was very impressive indeed. The stock saw a low of .64 before running as high as 1.96, carving out a 206% path and streaking up toward the massive gap that still waits to be filled.

We’re going to continue to monitor this play in the event that it fills the gap, which occupies a range of more than a dollar, and would boost our observed gains by even further.


Yum China Holdings, Inc. YUMC

We targeting some options contracts in the YUMC chain on Friday following the company’s Q2 earnings beat, selecting the YUMC 08/17 $37.50-42.50 Calls
for observation. While we didn’t get multi-bag moves, the gains that were available were still noteworthy.

$37.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-1.70 – Max Gain: 126%
$40 Calls – Range: .55-.80 – Max Gain: 1566%
$42.50 Calls – Range: .23-.35– Max Gain: 407%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Mid-Week Review

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM

Today marks the fourth consecutive morning that we’ve addressed USRM in our premarket report, granted the fact that it has gone on a multi-day run setting new highs one after the other.

During yesterday’s session, USRM traded in a range from .096 to .1793, a fantastic intraday swing of 87%  From the low of .014 we caught immediately following our report  on February 27th, the total increase we observed in just a shade over a month amounts to an incredible 1180%

The stock closed at .125, but the volume cooled down to just slightly more than the 30-day average. We’ll remain interested in tracking USRM as long as it can continue to build higher base levels of support.


Sunshine Heart, Inc. SSH

We tagged SSH in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist, after identifying it as a possible bottom-bouncer, and ended up providing a pretty good opportunity for a quick intraday gain which could be just the start.

The stock traded in a range from 1.67 to 2.38 for a 43% pop, and perhaps more importantly, closed with strength at 2.31 having traded more than four times the monthly average volume on the day.

That performance will have us on the lookout for a possible continuation of momentum and give SSH a chance to formulate a multi-day run.


Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

We also want to give a quick update on the performances of a set of DLTR options we alerted a week ago today. The DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls have provided the following gain opportunities since then:

$78 Calls -  .51-1.18  (+131%)
$79 Calls – .48-.90 (+88%)
$80 Calls – .30-.61 (+103%)

The $78.50′s and the $79.50′s, also included in our highlighted range, also made commensurate gains to what’s listed above.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CSOC, Options & More

Caduceus Software Systems Corp. CSOC

We want to bring CSOC into focus this morning on the heels of a filing that hit wires yesterday alluding to an interesting development at the company. (>>Read Filing)

We’re witnessing CSOC’s entry into the cannabis space, as they have announced their intent to provide SaaS (software as a service) to cannabis growers, and have also registered domain names to facilitate that. ( www.Inventory420.com and www.Inventory420.info)

We’ll be taking up regular monitoring of this play as part of our initiative to keep a close eye on the marijuana market, which just increased in size by a significant margin with the elections earlier this month. That will include keeping our ears to the tracks as we wait for further updates on its plans.
