Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PEP Surges & More

PepsiCo, Inc. PEP

Pepsi had a solid across the board beat following its premarket earnings release yesterday, and we seized opportunity to include the  PEP Weekly $124-125 Calls in our morning report.

A five-dollar intraday run by the stock allowed for some very nice opportunities to profit in our pair of targets. The $124 Calls ran from .72-3.40 for a big 372% rip, while the $125′s traded from .32 to 2.45; a gain of 666%


Verb Technology, Inc. VERB

This stock is a newcomer to the NASDAQ, having only recently uplisted from the OTCQB, which has been the subject of a selloff over the past six weeks. That was kicked into another gear earlier this month when the company announced that its move to the NASDAQ would be accompanied by a $20M offering at roughly half the market price at the time.

Now that it has fallen well below the offering price, and indicators are suggesting a rebound may be in order, we are going to flag this play for observation in the days and weeks ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TROV, PULM Reviews

Pulmatrix, Inc. PULM

We highlighted this stock in Friday morning’s premarket report, and were immediately paid potential dividends as PULM made a very solid intraday push. From a low of 1.33, PULM surged as high as 2.33 on the day. That represents a single-session gain of 75% which occurred on huge volume.

It was also sufficient to secure PULM the #2 slot on the NASDAQ top gainers list for the day. We’ll be sure to monitor its activity as we kick off the fresh trading week, in the event of a momentum spillover.


TrovaGene, Inc. TROV

Also appearing in Friday morning’s report was a reminder on TROV. We signaled this stock for observation at the end of January. It tapered back slightly to find support at a low of 2.54, and reached an impressive mark of 9.65 on Friday morning. That worked out to move of 280% in a span of roughly five weeks.


Big Lots, Inc. BIG – Options Recap

We also had the BIG 03/15 $35 & $37.50 Calls on watch in Friday’s report, and those worked out fantastically, thanks to a very nice daily performance from the stock. The $35 Calls ran hard from a low of .50 and up as high as 2.40- a move of 380% The $37.50′s dwarfed that move, exploding from a low of ,07 to .75, which works out to a daily increase of 971%


The Boeing Co. BA – Fresh Idea

We’re also going to be looking to short Boeing early on this week with the BA Weekly $375-367.50 Puts, after a disaster for an Ethiopian Airlines flight claimed 149 lives on a brand new Boeing MAX-8 737 a mere 6 minutes after takeoff. It’s all but certain to cause near-term issues for BA stock, which has already been on the decline this month.

Blue Horseshoe Stock: INSE Update & More

Inspired Entertainment Inc. INSE – Update

Yesterday morning, we placed INSE on recovery watch in the wake of its quarterly reporting. We cited the attractive bottom-bounce that was in effect as the markets had tanked the previous day and INSE managed to buck that trend.

Our instincts about this play turned out to be very good, with the stock piling on yet another very solid trading session. The stock’s low came in right at the opening price of 3.86 and it never looked back. INSE ran up to 5.23, representing a respectable single-session rise of 35%

It also closed just three cents lower than the high of day, setting us up to see if the stock can continue to build upon the momentum it has thus far exhibited.


DSW, Inc. DSW

We’d also like to formulate a fresh options idea for the DSW chain, after noticing an attractive chart setup. The stock has been trading at its lowest PPS since May, which when coupled with solid earnings and guidance in this morning’s quarterly report, could make for just the right conditions to strike on some options trades.

We’re going to signal interest in the DSW 12/21 $22.50 & $25 Calls, and keep those on watch throughout the rest of the week and into the next.

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: AAPL Run Continues

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Final Update

We’re coming back around to mention AAPL for the third consecutive time today, with the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls we selected on Wednesday morning continuing to pile on bigtime gains.

Practically every options idea we’ve looked at in this incredible bull market has been working out in our favor, and this old favorite has been no different. Here are the updated figures for the total possible gains which could have been attained as a result of our report on Wednesday:

$195 Calls – Range: 3.20-13.25 – Max Gain: 314%
$197.50 Calls – Range: 1.71-10.80 – Max Gain: 531%
$200 Calls – Range: .81-8.40 – Max Gain: 937%


More Options Success

Our premarket report yesterday also contained two fresh sets of options ideas for Tesla, inc. TSLA with the Weekly $320-330 Calls, as well as the Wayfair Inc. W Weekly $110-115 Calls.  Both ideas produced fantastic chances for huge single session multi-bag profits:

TSLA Weekly $320-330 Calls,
$320 Calls – Range: 7.20-30 – Max Gain: 316%
$322.50 Calls – Range: 6-28.27 – Max Gain: 371%
$325 Calls – Range: 5.25-25.26 – Max Gain: 381%
$327.50 Calls – Range: 4.20-22.25 – Max Gain: 430%
$330 Calls – Range: 3.10-20 – Max Gain: 563%

We’ll be looking at the possibility of rolling up to the TSLA Weekly $345 & $350 Calls for today, but please, do not trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are expert trader with disposable funds. While the rewards can be great, the risks are of equal gravity!
____

W Weekly $110-115 Calls
$110 Calls – Range: 3.10-11.10 – Max Gain: 258%
$115 Calls – Range: 1.76-5.30 – Max Gain: 201%
(Note: Wayfair also produced gains throughout our entire selected range early in the session, but here we have simply included the figures for the bottom and top of the range only, as that is where most of the open interest was.)
